🎞 Watched: Logan – The Wolverine

I didn’t really have high hopes for this movie and unfortunately it didn’t prove me wrong. I think I’m just tired of these bleak near-future post apocalyptic stories.

Wait, has the Workflow app been changed to Shortcuts, not replaced? I mean, is the Workflow app on my phone actually the same app as what will be Shortcuts is I update to iOS 12?

I’m confused.

Before I started to logg my podcast listening on my blog my ”system” for keeping track of important episodes and their content was to screen shot Overcast whenever I listened to something particularly interesting. I will use some of those screenshots to back-fill some data.

Today seems to be a perfect day to listen to Christian Gabel’s magnificent Krater album, the soundtrack to a Swedish post-apocalyptic 80’s movie that was never made.

Based on the current iPhone prices, once my SE breaks I’m no longer going to be an iPhone customer.

I just had to google how to wrap lines in a cell in the latest version of Excel. Either I’m getting worse at figuring out GUIs, or Excel gets even worse in terms of useability.

Pro Tools | Loudness 4 Years On. Has Loudness Compliance Worked Or Caused More Problems Than It Has Solved?

From my point of view, it’s important to understand that a mix needs to be produced for a typical listening environment.

On the most recent Hello Internet CGP Grey voices some interesting concerns about how we spend out attention and he lists podcasts as one of the ways he unintentionally fills all downtime for his brain.

And yes, it is off course a bit ironic to hear this on a podcast but I never the less agree with him. I’m in the middle of listening to their discussion now, so maybe I’ll re-evaluate some of my own media consumption afterwards.

An Old Fashioned cocktail

Judging by my drinking habits, I should probably have a lot more tattoos and facial hair.

It seems like the correct way to get spatial audio to work on the Oculus Go is to encode your video as a ”Facebook 360 Video” in the FB360 Encoder.

Turns out Android File Transfer works with the Oculus Go if you want to transfer/sideload files from your Mac.

I just realized why the web was suddenly so ugly and full of ads, I had forgotten to install Ghostery on my new machine. Problem solved and the web looks decent gain.

The first Dark Tower book had a lot of interesting ideas but it was quite a slow read. The second one so far appears to be much more of a page turner.

Also a full-sized iPad, even an Air, is a bit on the heavy side for reading in bed.

Does Indiepaper store the list of articles I want to read later or is it “just” a way to get the text out of articles and then sending them to my own site?

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.

Securing Web Sites Made Them Less Accessible

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.

In theory I really like the idea of cleaning my office. In practice, the only way to do it properly would be to take everything out and only allow the things that I really use back in but unfortunately that’s not possible right now.

Nice to see so many people1 also having fond memories of Gowalla. To me it had something that so many other social networks don’t. It had personality and it was fun to use, as opposed to simply addicting to use.

Jeremy Cherfas has launched a wonderful series on his Eat This Podcast called Our Daily Bread about how weat became a staple of food all around the world. It’s very interesting and just the right length to consume every single day. You should listen to it!

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 often find myself really missing Gowalla. The great icons/badges really made it fun to use.
