@grantjbutler @pcperini It is also my preferred client. And the updates keep making it better…

@better @aral I can’t see any model more suitable than subscription. Because we all use the net on a daily basis, it makes perfect sense to pay for the ongoing improvement of the experience (like housecleaning). As soon as you stop subscribing, you’ll see the effect (and vice versa). I’m willing to bet a large amount that patronage will not give you enough income, because we’re all just too busy and, hey, things are working fine without paying.

@GeekAndDad @schwa On a somewhat related note, I started using GRDB earlier this year, and I’m simply blown away by it. Elegant and joyful (and well-documented and -supported!) sqlite3 wrapper, if that’s something you’d consider. Highly recommended: github.com/groue/GRDB.swift

Hm, that was a reply to mastodon.technology/@trey/1006, but I added a CW (for lulz and giggles). But it broke the thread? 🤔

Rambling 

As my bio alludes to, I was all in on Lomography back in the days. Got the Lomo camera etc., but realised I’d much rather use my M6 for the same type of photography. That taught me to to point (from hip, ground, …) without looking through the rangefinder, and focusing on a 21 (ASPH naturally) or 35mm was just a matter of setting an approximate distance on the ring. Good times! Still influences how I take photos today.

@trey It’s really nice stuff. I’m happy to see Nikon innovate like this. It does surprise me, though, that the lenses are so bulky now that the body is mirrorless. That’s what I’ve always liked about the Leica M-series; small and top-performing lenses.

@pcperini I’d love to try it. What kind of feedback are you looking for? Only bugs, or UX/design/features as well?

Also - that mastodon client you’re writing is going to work with Markdown too isn’t it? Right right?

Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!

@jfro Just flip it upside down, and it becomes immediately visible.

@jfro I love ours shown here. Otherwise just make sure it has a Peuguet mechanism. a.co/fNq7t4i
