    Mori on app.net: "256 characters available in a post, instead of Twitter’s 140, turned out to make a huge difference." Twitter could learn a lot from ADN. http://morrick.me/archives/7778

      Key for Micro.blog: it’s a success if more people blog. To provide value it doesn’t need to replace Twitter. But also, it can.

        I posted a short video of the Micro.blog iPhone app as a Kickstarter update. This expands on the limited screenshots in the original Kickstarter video, and hopefully explains a few more things about how everything works.

          Lots of ways to resize video, but for some reason I just downloaded Final Cut Pro. Feels like a “use regex, now you have 2 problems” joke.

            Is there a tool for exporting all my posts **and** my messages **and** includes the messages of the other users in those conversations?

              Current @riposte beta expires two days before App.net shuts down. I guess that's appropriate. Really appreciate @jaminguy keeping my favorite ADN app going all this time.

                @johngordon I've had co-workers who already had their new laptops broken because Magsafe wasn't there to save them from a fall. Joking about issuing everyone third-party Magsafe adapters as standard kit.

                  @johngordon Funny thing is, I mainly work plugged in, so neither battery nor thickness/weight matter except when I walk to/from the office.

                    @cgiffard @johngordon Rumor is (and I hope it’s false) that Apple’s quick solution is an iMac Pro to replace the MacPro. However the current iMac design has it’s own thermal problems. (Again completely unnecessarily)

                      @cgiffard @johngordon Rumor is that the thermal capabilities of the cylinder made it hard to upgrade to the next generation of GPU. I’ve not seen that confirmed though.

                        @clarkgoble It is interesting they seem to be fixing Sierra to support Aperture. Of course maybe Aperture is good at finding Sierra bugs.

                          @johngordon Honestly even Gurman story suggests they unnecessarily focused on hard to manufacture case. No need for that for pro market. Ive’s habits are their worse in pro market that ignores how it’s used. Could easily use taller MacMini case.

                            @johngordon Remember days when Apple had three tiers of software? iLife for basics, mid tier for prosumers, then pro tier. So there was Movies, Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro. Now there’s quasi-iLife and pro stuff either gone more more at FCE level.

                              The string passed to INDIRECT ends up looking like H$2:H$24 if you stick it in cell H25 (`&` is the operator version of string CONCAT). INDIRECT converts it from a string to a legit reference, and then SUM does its usual job of summing an area.

                                I seem to forget this every time, so: To say "sum the range from row 2 to the row before the current cell, using column relative addresses" in Google Sheets, this works: =SUM(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2, COLUMN(), 2) & ":" & ADDRESS(ROW() - 1, COLUMN(), 2)))

                                  Can't create named ranges via Sheets iOS app. 😭
