It's even worse than it appears..
Today's song: Amie.#
For the first time I'm thinking I should quit Twitter over their labeling of NPR as state-owned media. It seems to me staying on Twitter implies that I support what they did, and I do not. I could just as easily see them putting yellow badges on Jewish people's accounts. #
Poll: If Twitter labeled Jewish people's accounts would you quit?#
I just got notice that Twitter was turning off the identity service for This is the first one that I care about. Gets me thinking about how I might resurrect this app. I wrote it shortly after I became a fan of Facebook. I wanted to create a blogging system around their UI breakthoughs, and to improve on them. #
I had ChatGPT write some SQL code for me. I probably could have figured it out in a couple of hours, but instead it took me five minutes to specify the problem, and it took ChatGPT another five minutes to code it up and explain it to me. I wanted to see how many feeds each FeedLand user is the "first subscriber" of. Here's an archive of the conversation. #
I'm not getting very much work done these days. Still more work to do on FeedLand. And after that I'm thinking the next project might be a Linux port for Frontier. I really want to leave a functioning Frontier behind as part of my body of work. And the Mac isn't a very reliable platform going forward. It's so funny -- the best product I ever did, really -- and it got all mired in the jealousy of Apple employees. Thinking about it. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
