I cannot even imagine just how many horrible hacks make Catalyst work, and I don't want to know.

I technically have a mac app now, in that the iPad version of Pine.blog boots up on my mac. It is awful to use, but it does work.

Once this build is uploaded, I think I'm going to spend the rest of the day playing with Catalyst.

That all said, I've wanted a macOS app for years but never had the time to get into Mac development seriously.

Truthfully, the iOS app tends to lag behind the web version because:

  1. I'm one person working in my spare time.
  2. I'm much more comfortable on the web than in iOS.

Pushing up a new beta for Pine.blog (iOS). Lots of fixes + enhancements.


  
   sonicrocketman

Just thought up a really cool feature for Pine.blog. Too bad I'm working on something else at the moment.

I'll be using this to track San Diego County

A few of my friends at SRTI hav just launched outbreak.info:

[It] shows growth of #COVID19 cases and deaths over time, stratified by country and/or state. Automatically refreshed from @JHUSystems daily.

Congrats to everyone who worked to get this launched!

Attention: I now have coffee and therefore can now start working on Pine.blog.

That is all. ☕️

Today is a Pine.blog day.

Really appreciating Gov. Gavin Newsom’s updates. They’re clear, to the point, and frank.

My only feedback is that he could take a breath once and a while. It feels like he’s racing to the end.

So. Tired.

In other news: this week I got a SodaStream 👍

Better Photo Posting

It's now easier than ever to post a photo on Pine.blog! Just upload a photo and click Post! This will automatically create a new draft and attach the photo; then just click Publish.

Better Image Posting!

Easy Publishing!

This change should make it a lot easier to post photos to your blog. Let me know what you think. As always, Pine.blog aims to make writing and reading stuff on the web easier. If you have other suggestions for how to make Pine.blog easier to use, let me know!

NPR:

“...states like Japan, California, and others”

Did we secede?


  
   sonicrocketman

Anyway, I have to work.

Also, Google’s docs for this assume you’re guilty and you want to create new ads. What happened to presumptions of innocence?

All bow to the all-knowing algorithm!


  
   sonicrocketman

In unrelated news some of my ads on Google we’re suspended and I have no idea why. Apparently, Google considers Pine.blog to be malware?? I do not have time to fix this now.

If you build systems that make decisions about people’s livelihoods: Please include the reasons why the system made the decisions it did, or at lease a clue.

You don't often see them but you can find some of them on your local news. They're struggling to cope, but they are trying. Look to your local leaders. They'll have more effect on you than the Federal Government will.
