      Considering shooting a video for our very EXCITING new product. GSKHub! And then, the whole video is about all the women at GSK sexually harassing Frank, revoking his commits, and telling him questioning abuse is EXACTLY what a crazy person would do.

            Hey, you can see copies of The Magazine: The Book in living color (literally) at Ada’s Bookstore in Seattle and Reading Frenzy in Portland *at any time* and even, you know, buy a copy from an independent bookseller.

              @mattgemmell I migrated all my servers and performance is ridiculously better. So my “mid-end” server is now Web + DB (my needs for DB have reduced over the years, too) & it’s still much faster than it was earlier today…
              glennf
                @mattgemmell Plus Intel bumps. I’m paying them $350/mo right now. Will be dropping to $150/mo b/c I can combine servers given the amount of power/RAM/storage now! So I hope that works for them.

                  @boingboing I hate sympathizing with Rumsfeld. Of course, conservatives say the answer is a flat tax, even though they have spent decades (along with Dems) carving out a million billion exceptions and loopholes.

                          @isaiah the developer releases stats that show < 2% of new buyers/upgrades come from pre-whatever cutoff. In you case, you have affirmative knowledge, which outweighs anything I might say about it.

                            @isaiah Oh, one has to choose where to put one’s energy, as you know! Since you know you have a spread of users who upgrade, that’s superb. I’ve often seen lots of anger about a developer making version choices and then

                              @isaiah But I think I have a reaction to the pre-10.6.9/post-10.6.9 period plus Rosetta. During that period, there was a lot of anger about developers who gave on pre-10.6.9

                                @isaiah I’ve definitely seen a tendency at TidBITS, when I was writing intensively there for many years, that people who resisted updates stuck with ancient software packages as both a cause and effect.

                                  @veganstraightedge Probably July/August timeframe. My goal is to back-prepare the schedule so that the book is on press before late October and can ship to backers in the US before Christmas.

                                    @isaiah Every day that goes by, the people who haven’t upgraded are less likely to ever buy anyone’s software ever again, too.

                                        @annatarkov @1password I don’t think so — but I use it on a Mac and iOS. It’s just the desktop version captures passwords.
