    @mandyd Just throwing this out there because it's pretty awesome: http://levelguardproducts.com/sump/
    eg
      @ludolphus Note that the preview images show up fine in Alpha, and in the Cauldron desktop client (which admittedly, has a lot of Chrome-stuff under the hood.)
      eg
        @ludolphus Is there anything different you could do in Chimp so the photo previews from Kickstarter "work"? It seems they may be checking for some headers or something, resulting in an "Unauthorized" response? Here's a sample post [posts.app.net] if you need one.
        eg
          @robertbeeger It looks like Kickstarter no longer allows directly linking to project images. When I try, I get an "Unauthorized" message. :-(
          eg
            @ludolphus I wonder why it doesn't seem to be updating. Would be it be possible to update it when you open a URL, and also when you've been idle for, say, 5 seconds? How often/when does Chimp check for a new SM (i.e. set by a desktop app) and scroll to it?
            eg
              @ludolphus In a similar vein, an option to tighten the leading (reduce the space between lines). Finally, an option to show both full name and user name. Thanks again for continuing to work on your client and not letting it stagnate.
              eg
                @ludolphus BTW, it's great to see active development of an iOS client! If I may, some suggestions for a future release: an option to hide the icons under each post. Instead, tap to show them—including a reply icon. Better use of screen space. (continued)
                eg
                  @ludolphus Is Chimp using the A•n Stream Markers? Lately when I launch Chimp, it goes to an older spot in my stream, even though I've read newer posts. (Worth noting: I haven't launched any other clients, desktop or mobile, in between launches...)
                  eg
                    @shauncollins You're welcome. Thanks again. Hopefully your day will be slightly less boring with a bunch of HN stories to read now. :)
                    eg
                      @shauncollins D'oh! Thanks for the heads up! I've been really busy at work so I shut down Cauldron to avoid distraction and look what happens! (HN changed their HTML formatting a bit, so my parser was failing.)
                      eg

                          Had no idea what "Gloving" was until I saw this project. >> @ks_hardware: The Kinetic [www.kickstarter.com] The first of its kind — a microlight that dynamically reacts to your movement. Launched 53 minutes ago in #Hardware. At 120% with 142 backers.

                            @mcdemarco Oh, is the GMT-in-my-calendars an iOS 8 bug?! I just thought all my events got messed up when I went to Europe!

                              The Martian is $3 on kindle. Great sf story. You should read it before the movie comes out. http://amzn.to/1yoYHex

                                @blumenkraft Yes, that would definitely break things. :) I try to be a "stream completionist", so maintaining state (and thus easily being able to switch between desktop and mobile) is one of the most important things to me. @ludolphus
                                eg
                                  @blumenkraft @ludolphus Similarly, when I return to iOS, I expect the app to read the SM whenever it enters the foreground, retrieve the posts near the marker, and scroll me there. That allows "seamless" hand-off between mobile and desktop.
                                  eg
                                    @blumenkraft @ludolphus Cauldron is my gold standard. It works exactly how I expect when "Jump to Stream Marker" is enabled. As long as my "mobile app of choice" writes the SM when applicationDidEnterBackground, Cauldron is at the right spot on my desktop.
                                    eg
                                      @ludolphus Very good to hear. I will wait for the next update and then provide feedback. My biggest issue with cients is with stream markers. Whenever applicationDidBecomeActive, it would be nice if it retrieved the SM, got nearby posts, and scrolled there
                                      eg
                                        @mandyd I usually get them at GNC. They have a lot of different "flavors" to choose from too.
