Does an app exist that will allow me to connect my turntable, using the lightning to USB dongle, and then send the audio to airplay speakers?

Like I want Airfoil, but on iOS (I’m happy to dedicate an iPod touch to this - I want a self contained device including UI).

👋 Melbourne, it’s been lovely but it’s back to Sydney I go.

I need to figure out a way of bringing in images from Instagram to mastadon. One caveat: I don’t want every image. Maybe I can rig something up with ifttt & a hashtag or something?

From a business perspective I can't make a case for a Don app yet. We've got too much other stuff on our plates.

If there's enough interest I can set up a Patreon for me to get something ported up to MVP level over nights and weekends.

Note: Any actual app would be paid, likely subscription based (not a fan of them but makes sense here for various reasons).

Thoughts/comments?

I’m a New Zealander, live in Sydney (Australia), spend a fair amount of time in San Francisco (US), today I’m a devops type. While I’m not as introverted as some you’ll find me hiding sometimes.

If I have a vice, and obviously I don’t*, it’d have to be the Sinful Dark Vegan.

Dark hot chocoate without stomach pains? Hell yes.

(* Please ignore all my other vices. Especially the one where I bought a computer completely forgetting I’d ordered one just days before.)

Oh, so I'm starting to collect a list of people who might be interested in a native Mac tootclient...

Feel free to toot'n'boost this.

Are you, like me, still playing Pokémon GO? Let's be friends! My Trainer Code is 1272 0830 0856!

Despite my best efforts while setting up requiring the yubikey to login, my Mac still works. Yay!

Only downside is no UI telling you the yubikey is required.

Yubikey-ing all the things.

By which I mean requiring it for login on my MacBook Pro that runs the Mojave beta.

Yeah. Not sure I should be allowed near computers after work hours.

I won the lottery!

Ok, only $17 and my ticket cost $24.

Ok, I lost $7.

Ok, I lost the lottery. Sigh.

i saw a toot about it elsewhere but i can’t find it so: basically don’t trust mastodon for things you want to stay Actually Private. instance admins can read DMs, and instance admins can read the private posts of anyone their users follow. this is sort of inherent to the current architecture. and for all twitter’s sins, i trust the admins to not leak random people’s DMs more than i trust every instance admin ever.

Siri doesn’t take too kindly to being called a pirate.

In my defence I said something different and hadn’t intended the watch to parse it as a query.
