Twitter just nu är alltså fotboll, Almedalen och Apple Music. Det finns med andra ord ingen anledning att hänga kvar där i kväll.

It seems to me like webmentions is a way too complicated solution to the problem that trackbacks solved years ago. Why fix that which ain’t broken?

The whole indieweb-thing seems neat, but as with so many other similar projects it’s really hard to implement and use their ideas.

Imagine a photo-sharing site built with WordPress. For all intents and purposes it’s like Instagram. Every post has a photo, posts can’t be photo-less and you can’t have more than one photo in a post.

Would you implement this using the Featured Image property of a post or would the photo be ”hard coded” so to speak in each post using an <img> element inside the actual post content?

Any thoughts? Please let me know via App.Net, e-mail or Twitter.

Just launched XCode on my new computer and compiled a program. Oh my that’s fast! I think I can get used to this computer.

Since I’ve just started using app.net again I’m on the lookout for a good, up to date, ADN client for iOS. Any suggestions?

The latest version of Do Note seems to give me a solution to my main WordPress gripe, the nonexistent sharing functions on iOS.

Programming Yamaha DME processors is an odd but interesting part of my job. Always frustrating but also always intellectually challenging.

Nu, efter att ha vägrat i någon månad, tog Iris äntligen flaskan igen och kunde tänka sig att bli matad av mig. Jättemysigt!

Just nu är tankarna ett virrvarr av AES/EBU, MADI, ADAT, DANTE och andra mer eller mindre konstiga namn och förkortningar.

Mycket hjärnkapacitet går åt till att fundera på hur ljudsignalerna i TV-studion i #Mediehuset ska kopplas med det ”nya” mixerbordet.

Good night, people of the Internet. Now I’ll try to get a few hours of sleep before my seminar tomorrow.

”I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe… Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears… in… rain.”

Nytt babyrelaterat ord: ”skråt”. När skratt och gråt avlöser varandra så snabbt att varken barnet eller de vuxna kan skilja dem åt.

Also it’s fascinating to see that App.Net is still alive, although very small. I like the fact that I can keep up with the main timeline.

I’ve enabled some microblogging features on my blog that means that this will show up there as well as on both Twitter and App.Net.

Ju fler artiklar jag läser om Blade Runner, desto mer känner jag att jag måste ge Prometeus en chans till.

Efter middag hos mamma ligger jag i en fåtölj och slösurfar medan Iris och (gammal)mormor busar i soffan. Jag behöver fler sådana här dagar.

1. Blanda tre delar gin med en del vodka och en halv del torr vermouth.
2. Skaka i isfylld shaker.
3. Servera i martiniglas med citronskal.

(This is a question for David Smith, the developer of Feed Wrangler. Since it may be interesting to more people than me I choose to ask it in this public place.)

Edited 2015-07-16 with David Smith’s response.

According to the RSS specification the title of an item is optional. This is especially useful in the context of microblogging.

In Feed Wrangler, when a post lacks a title it gets the title [Untitled]. Is there a way for a client side app to distinguish a post that actually lacks the title from a post that really is titled [Untitled]?

(I realize that this is an extreme edge case. There are probably very few blog posts floating around that is actually titled [Untitled].)


David responded to me:

I don’t expose if a post is actually titled “[Untitled]” or if I was missing its title. Where would the difference be of use?

Nu debatteras det mycket i USA om sydstatsflaggans vara och inte vara. Det får mig att fundera på svenska raggare och deras användande av flaggan. Vad står den för hos dem egentligen?

Det ser ut bli en riktigt regnig midsommar. Det gör mig inget men jag skulle gärna se bättre väder under resten av sommaren.
