In Compressor 4, this no longer work.
It’s not that it is a deprecated feature, it is that the feature is broken. If I use AIFF files, it does work, if I use WAVE it doesn’t.
I’ve dug around a bit and it seems to be either a problem with Compressor 4.4.1, and it wasn’t a problem in 4.4.0, or it is a problem with High Sierra. The error message says
Failed: 3x *** -[AVAssetReaderAudioMixOutput initWithAudioTracks:audioSettings:] invalid parameter not satisfying: [audioTracks count] >= 1
I’m not a developer but to me that seems like an SDK problem, so maybe it is High Sierra (in my case 10.13.5) that is the problem.
The silver lining is that there is an update to 10.13.6 available, so I guess I’ll do that update and hope for the best. See you on the other side.
Also a full-sized iPad, even an Air, is a bit on the heavy side for reading in bed.
A local caching server, meant to speed up commonly-requested sites and reduce bandwidth usage, is a “man in the middle”. HTTPS, which by design prevents man-in-the-middle attacks, utterly breaks local caching servers. So I kept waiting and waiting for remote resources, eating into that month’s data cap with every request.
Really important post by Eric Meyer.
When it comes to HTTPS, I’m skeptical of the idea of it having to be everywhere. As long as there are any kind of extra work implementing it, as opposed to having an “insecure” web site and the site in question is a simple blog and personal site like this one, I will not go through the hassle and/or pay the money required.
Ben Werdmüller makes a good case for why open source publishing tools such as Known should not spend time developing connections to proprietary APIs that can be shut down on a whim. A lot of people agrees with him and it also seems like many are rethinking whether to syndicate posts to different social networks or not, with most participants arriving at the conclusion that they shouldn’t.
I’m not going to argue against this, but I am going to tell you why I think cross-posting is valuable and something that I plan to keep on doing. Basically, it all boils down to what can be summarized as my mother doesn’t use a feed reader.
In a more broad sense it means that different people that I want to be able to see the things I write, and whos posts I want to read (my family and different groups of friends), use different social networks. My mother doesn’t read my blog. Nor does my fiancé. That means that if I post a cute picture of one of the kids my closest family won’t see it, unless I cross-post it to Instagram.
Same goes for a lot of my friends who have stopped using RSS and instead use Twitter.1
Other people use micro.blog, or Medium or any other site and/or network.
And yes I mentioned micro.blog because to some of us, micro.blog is also a cross-post. I don’t post on micro.blog, I post on my own blog and syndicate to micro.blog. Sure, an important distinction between micro.blog och say Twitter or Facebook is that the former does all the heavy lifting for me. All it needs is an RSS feed. It even sends webmentions for replies, which I love.
So I definitely think that the case can be made that it’s not worth the hassle to support all kinds of different proprietary APIs to cross-post to the latest snapstagram, but that’s about time spent, not about cross-posting being something bad.
Someone brought up the idea that cross-posting is anoying for a person who follows someone on multiple places and while I can see that, the solution is really simple. Don’t follow someone in more that one place, if that someone is someone who cross-posts most or all things.
It’s magic, I know. First a pretty ordinary grass becomes the main source of sustenance for most of the people alive on Earth. Then they learn how to turn the seeds of that grass into the food of the gods. Join me, every day in August, as I dig into Our Daily Bread for the Dog Days of Podcasting with short episodes on the history of wheat and bread.
I’ve subscribed to you microcast RSS feed and am looking forward to more episodes. I haven’t listened to the one about the open web and academia yet but I assume that it’ll be interesting to me, since I’m also in the academics.
Väldigt svårt val eftersom det finns så många fantastiska spel till SNES. Super Mario World var och är ett jättekul spel och A Link to the Past står sig fortfarande som ett av de bästa Zelda-spelen. Det är nog inget spel som jag har lagt ner så många timmar i som Super Empire Strikes Back. Vansinnigt svårt, en bra adaption av filmen och snygg användning av pseudo-3d-läget ”Mode 7” i SNESen.
Men jag tror att min favorit måste vara Donkey Kong Country, eftersom det var och är så fruktansvärt kul att spela, alldeles lagom svårt och för att det verkligen visade upp vad SNESen kunde i form av grafik och ljud. Varje gång jag genom åren kopplat in SNESen igen och spelat Donkey Kong Country så har jag blivit förvånad och imponerad över hur snyggt det är. Jag tycker inte att något annat spel (möjligen undantaget uppföljarna) lyckades vara så snyggt på SNES.
So that is my question to all of you, which books should I read as part of my The Dark Tower reading?
Of course I will read the seven main books, but then there’s the eight ”The Wind Through the Keyhole” that takes place between number four and five. Should I read this one after ”Wizard and Glass” and before ”Wolves of the Calla” or should I consider it more like bonus material after I’ve finished the main books?
How about other King novels that tie into The Dark Tower, like ”The Stand”, should I intersperse it in the reading of the main series or should it also be considered something extra to read afterward?
Two things to note if you have suggestions for me:
These days I’m a fairly slow reader and I have very little time for reading so it has taken many weeks but tonight, on a very hot summer night of what I believe is one of the warmest summers in Sweden in recorded history, I finished the book. I can’t say that I loved it but I am definitely intrigued by it, so I will keep on reading the series. I believe that a lot of the things that are still confusing will be less so as I keep on reading. I also think that this will be an interesting way into the works of Stephen King, which I haven’t really explored at all before reading this book.
Because I’ve gotten into purchasing physical copies of books again, and because I buy books much faster than I read then, I already have four books in the series in my bookshelf.
I don’t think I’ll read more tonight and I’m not sure whether I’ll reading something else before starting book two in the series. Time will tell.
(Yes, I’m probably going to publish quite a few of these today. I think ”procrastination” is the word you
‘re looking for.)
I was thinking about it multiple times during the day. I even knew what to post but due to the things we were doing in the family yesterday, which was also going to be the subject of the post, I never posted anything.
This morning when I realized that I’d broken the streak I actually posted the photo that I was supposed to post yesterday and tried to set its date to late yesterday, when I had intended to do it. It worked for the blog but Micro.blog still (correctly) registered it as a post from today. Initially it bummed me out but then I read your post and realized that the streak is not that big of a deal and then I changed the date of the post again to be the actual posting date, not the intended date.
So thanks for your post!
The only squares I’ve spent much time with today are the square keys of my MacBook Pro as I’m trying to figure out why my blog suddenly refuses to receive webmentions.
