@TomLarrow And I still don't understand why they killed off Reader. The value of having a more technically literate userbase and knowing exactly what they are reading has to be worth something.

It's Friday, so basically after my 8:30 meeting the weekend starts, right?

Please don't preorder/buy a digital edition of the live coding book coming out at the end of Nov on MIT press. It's open access and will be freely available as mobi, epub and pdf. They're also selling digital editions separately (despite us paying an open access subvention with public funds).
The ebooks will be free to download, edit and share under a CC-BY-SA license on their website, but hidden under the 'resources' tab. We're discussing how to make this clearer..

@Azure my wife is in that boat, she still hasn’t found one that works for her.

@Azure what has helped me is a Bluetooth sleep mask listening to thunderstorms all night. The rain sounds help me shut down my brain. With the sound and the sleep mask, lights and sounds are greatly reduced.

@dheadshot can you use libvirt and any of the virtualization platforms it supports?

Ah, the beauty of using git to sync is that you can use any client you want on the desktop. I prefer Vim, but you could use anything since you're just working on text files. VS Code, Sublime Edit, iA Writer, Focus Writer, even Obsidian, depending on your needs.

On my Android phone I use Termux to sync and Markor to edit. On my iPhone & iPad it's Working Copy to sync and iA Writer to edit.

All of my data is version controlled.

@birnim @RL_Dane Markor and git. It's how I do all of my notes and can then read/edit from any device:

@soapdog Lol, cool!

It's a collection of things that I read over the week that I found interesting, I don't know how interesting some of them will be to others though.

I try to write more original content, but always get sidetracked by life.

@soapdog I added your post to my weekly This Geek in Review that's published on Friday, so we'll see what happens. My site is built with Hugo, so I don't know what it does.

I use my Mini with a ThinkOutside BT foldable keyboard which has a built in stand.

@soapdog And, subscribed. Too bad RSS doesn't have any sort of feedback mechanism for new subscribers...

@soapdog I concur whole heartedly! My portable device now is my iPad Mini 6 with a foldable keyboard. I take it when I feel my Thinkpad X1 Carbon is too big.
