This is all about what I used last - https://slashdot.org/~stoolpig...
I hope you are right - I just want to keep my options open. I'd much rather just keep doing my thing here.
Writing journals is not set up in the beta. If I go to my profile - there are links for comments, submissions and journals - so maybe they plan to implement it.
But I'm just not sure of the future of the overall platform. These changes make me wonder if the days for the site are numbered. I'm backing up all my journal entries so I don't lose any and then making sure I have a place to go if things come apart.
I see a bunch of journal entries under your account. If you go to https://slashdot.org/journal.p... but put in your user id instead of mine you should get a list of your entries. I do think there is a limit on how many will show up (or how far it will let you look back) if you don't have a subscription. With a subscription you can go back through them all.
The fact that slashboxes have stopped working and I didn't see links for writing journals in the beta has me thinking that the site will move away from the level of personalization that it had before. So I'm thinking through what I'll do as a replacement. The idea I keep coming back to is I may go ahead and use a subreddit as my new journal. It would be a place I could post - people could follow it and respond if they were interested. It's possible to set one up so that people can read and co
Next week my wife is in Antalya for a conference. The day after she gets back I fly to Manila. I start by going backwards - which I usually try to avoid but it was impossible this time. I go to Amsterdam, then to Tapei and finally I will arrive in Manila. The upside, I guess, is that Schipol is a nice airport. Not as nice as
I hadn't heard of that - I'm inclined to check it out. Thanks for mentioning it.
This makes me wonder if anyone who has worked with PhoneGap has also worked just with Cordova and if what PhoneGap brings makes it worth it?
And would this mean that the google toolchain is basically another PhoneGap type tool?
If it's not obvious - I don't know a ton about either but I'm interested as it seems to be one of the few ways to really knock out some simple apps for Android and iOS rather than writing Java and Objective C.
that is funny.
I'm learning to navigate both systems and I interact with people daily that are used to both.
What kills me is when I say one and the context is off - for example I tell another American "It could be close to 30 tomorrow." and they say, "Celsius?" I want to smack them and say, "No - we are going to see a 60f drop in temperature over night."
I've got a ball park feel for Celsius now. It's easier for me to get a gut feeling for that over linear measurements. I'm still bad at looking at something and taking a guess as to how far it is in metric. I have to start with imperial and then convert.
We will be in Phoenix, where I grew up. In the summer the best bet will be Ben Avery as they have lights so we can shoot when it isn't so hot.
Or we'll go up north and find a good spot. That's the nice thing about all the public land there.
It's slashdot. Mostly pointless is what we do best.
Looks good - thanks for this.
I own a few guns - they are in a safe in Arizona.
And if you'd asked me when I left the US if I'd ever say this, I'd tell you that you were crazy - but living in a place where I really don't need to think about this stuff and gun crime is for all intents and purposes non-existent is incredibly nice.
My cousin in Slovenia lives on a farm and hunts - so he has a nice shotgun, rifle and pistol. So it isn't that it's impossible - it's just unusual. And contrary to my expectations the results are very pleasant.
