Randomly listening to This Is a Standoff’s Be Disappointed on the stereo upstairs. Realizing I saw them live (just) once, in Brussels. Thinking of all the shows I used to go to—how things have changed! Thinking of Rob Weychert’s site of all shows he’s ever been to.
Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.
Why I start most—but not all—replies with “In reply to,” you ask? So that the few folks following me via RSS would know what the heck I’m going on about.
Ugh. I don’t like 1-hour programming videos. Anything video, really. Written text is so much easier to navigate. Way faster to read through, too.
When, inside my Microsub reader, I bookmark a bookmark, it’ll bookmark the original bookmark instead. (I know.)
Note the fear with which publishers talk about Google (anonymously). It’s the same fear that app developers exhibit when talking about Apple (anonymously). Ain’t centralisation something?
This response to “the App Store does business like a grocery store”—hint: it doesn’t—is just about perfect. (There’s like a dozen different grocery chains and a whole lot of other options, which is the entire point. Also, retail margins are nowhere near 30% minus whatever Apple actually spends.)

So, my (shared) server went down today, and my WordPress database seems to have gotten corrupted. Only reason I know is I’ve secretly got
WP_DEBUG_LOG enabled at all times. Kept getting a “Please DISCARD the tablespace before IMPORT” while it was apparently trying to recreate a table that got orphaned. Restored a backup, tried to manually recreate two smallish posts, lost a single webmention. 🤷

I’ve been off Twitter for, like, nine or ten months. And, I really don’t like email “newsletters.” (RSS is wonderful, though, as is HTML—microformatted HTML.)
I’ve been off Twitter for about four months now (!), don’t track analytics for the site, and don’t have comments, so I’m completely blind to how many folks actually follow along[.] Would you “subscribe” to receive the posts in your inbox, or is RSS enough?

Just like Webmention ≠ “aggregating Twitter likes on your site,” IndieAuth ≠ RelMeAuth.
The biggest confusion seems to be conflating IndieAuth and IndieAuth.com.
