In the end tbh I've been disappointed with the lean to techie wierdness in sub-communities here. To the extent that in the end I went with the vanilla new Mastodon.social for @ceruleansounds

Thanks @Burk for sharing the fact that youtube-dl is back up, though youtube-dlc may still be faster burk.io/2020/my-youtube-dl-set

Great to see @Doctorow shout out the v. “let’s be honest here guys” work of fellow ex-Balliol-PPE @Econ_Marshall, who I got to stay with in DC once and eat potluck with his friends from Jeopardy. Hope you’ve managed to pay off those international student fees homie | pluralistic.net/2020/11/20/sov

I know a lot of Micro.Blog folks (@cdevroe, @Burk) love . I’ve never considered separating Mac from screen. What’s the main benefit? Do you port it between home & work where you have big screens? Is it much lighter than MacBook?

“people are locked down and using the air to connect” … sorry “using the Air to connect”. That’s right folks, Apple are now assuming that their brand supercedes the age-old phenomenon of speech as a method of communication |

True to form Apple will only discuss their free software updates () in the context of their pricey hardware
