    @morrick I didn't like ReadKit much. Was missing Reeder terribly. So glad to have it back.

      @morrick The only thing I'm missing is the Instapaper integration. It's functioning flawlessly for me.

        That strange relief you get when someone finally cashes a reasonably big check you sent a week ago.

          @funkyboy Finally, I win at something. New version looks good so far. @marc

            @manton Yes. I hope so, too.

              Ottawa in May. San Francisco in June. Denver in August. Montreal and then Philly in October. The conference season is shaping up nicely for me so far.

                I think the video for our upcoming Teleprompt+ 3 release came out pretty nice. http://bombingbrain.com/teleprompt3.html

                  @dazeend I've got the Philips 424381 11-watt A19. I have about 6 of them. They've dropped down to $15 each, too. I like them. And they're dimmable, which is good.

                    Just ordered an 8 pack of crappy lightbulbs, because I'll be damned if I leave my $30 apiece LEDs behind for the landlord.

                      @jdalrymple Hell yeah. Those guys could sing their asses off. Great song.

                        Been enjoying Emm Gryner’s new Torrential album. It was officially released on iTunes and elsewhere today. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/torrential/id825403077

                          If I had to sum up what’s wrong with the App Store, and much of humanity, in a single picture, this would be it. http://s.mlkshk.com/r/YC6J.jpeg

                            I don’t watch any show about doctors and assume that’s exactly what it’s like to work in a hospital, for instance. I figure there’s some truth in there that’s pulled out of proportion for effect.

                              Shows like that are mainly made for the people on the outside, looking in. They aren’t built to be accurate; they are there to reinforce our exaggerated stereotypes. And that’s okay. It’s how it should be.

                                I have no plans to watch Silicon Valley, because I live in that world. The show can only succeed at pissing me off.

                                  It's important to remember that no one forced Mozilla's board to do anything. They wisely fired the guy for bringing down a giant negative PR stink on the company. Correcting a costly mistake. The guy never should have made it past the vetting process.

                                    Bingo. I wanted to write this piece, but @marco did it for me. http://www.marco.org/2014/04/04/political-views

                                      Tech bigwigs find HBO's new Silicon Valley to be an unrealistic portrayal. Now they know how every cop and lawyer on earth feels.
