@jemostrom I deliberately used an iPad for much of the work early in the fall semester and I think you and I have similarly things to do at work. Let me know how it works out for you!
Personally, I’ve had some issues with the Files app in conjunction with OneDrive. And an annoyingly subpar app for our learning platform. Other than that, most things worked quite well.
Thanks Aaron. So far I’m happy with it, though I think I realised what I compromised on by buying such a comparatively cheap polyphonic synth (as compared to say a Prophet 12 or something). I would like a whole bunch more modulation, both sources and destinations.
My other synth is a DSi MoPho, which is monophonic and its modulation matrix is annoying to program but gloriously flexibel.
So far I don’t have any Volcas but several of those where on the table for me when I decided on which synth to buy. The Volca Modular har more of a Buchla approach to things, rather than a Moog style approach to things, right?
@burk I wholeheartedly agree on the Outlook ratings. We use Office365 at work and I stay as far away from Outlook as I can on the Mac (I use Apple Mail and the artist formerly known as iCal instead) whereas once I tried Outlook on iOS, I got hooked on it. Both on the iPhone and the iPad.
@macgenie Same here, but also with the sense of annoyance over all these people – not just Billy – who want to be ”the next Steve Jobs” or who want to make their company ”the Über of [insert whatever]”. So annoyance over start-up culture in general, I guess.
@odd You are right, off course. The problem is that I find the ignore part hard to do.
And that’s probably why I feel especially negative toward the idiots on ”the left”, rather than on ”the right”. The stupidities of ”the right” is fairly simple to ignore. Just don’t read their fringe publications. Ignoring stupidities from ”the left” on the other hand would require me to ignore so much mainstream press.
Today the film and television students made a tv production of a floor ball game. It was an outside broadcast production, so they had to set up all their gear in the arena. I was there as a handler, for the first time on one of their outside broadcasts. It was quite a lot of fun.
I am probably the odd man out here, but when I talk about my problems with the ”culture war” destroying my will to rewatch The Last Jedi, it is mainly not because of Evil Right-Wing-Alt-Right-Nazi-Incel-Hobgoblins, it’s because of their opposite yet still strangely similar counterparts telling me that if I don’t love this movie, it’s probably because I’m a misogynistic racist who hate people who aren’t skinny.
It’s gotta be possible to find a movie okay but not great.
@furstenberg The Last Jedi will probably grow on me to once I rewatch it. The problem for me is that it got caught up in the stuped ”culture war” that we seem to be fighting on the internet every single day.
Was it that the commentary helped in expressing his intentions with the movie, or where they just fun/interesting comments?
Yes, DVDs and blu-ray still suck but having to say ”no, we can’t watch that movie on this tv because it doesn’t have an AppleTV connected, so let’s go to the other room and watch it there” is worse and there are solutions.
2020 is the year when I start buying plastic discs again.
Today was another day of mostly administrative work. I did have one two-hour lecture on Mastering Music for Streaming Platforms but other than that I was mainly at my desk.
I did manage to complete scheduling and room booking for the next course that I am in charge of, even though it doesn’t happen until April. That made me happy and I now feel that I have many administrative things under control.
