Overview of #Lagrange v1.3 (gemlog post)
Version 1.3 has wide-ranging improvements that touch on all facets of the application. Now I regret calling v1.2 a "Big One" because this release eclipses it quite easily. 😄
Listening to old tracks I made, missing having properly working ears, but glad I don't spend my days looking at expensive modular synths. Most of it sounds like a recording of the air conditioning at an art gallery: https://oppen.digital/memex/audio/pleroma/04_of_the_bees.mp3 #theStudio
I've had a few people request tabs in Ariane (plus one 3 star review because it doesn't - thanks stranger). I've finally figured out a UI that doesn't suck too much. I was going to make Ariane 2 a grand rewrite but I think I'll just do a massive refactor instead with this added, then do Ariane 3 with Jetpack Compose in the next 6 months sometime. #gemini #android
Good podcast: "How the 60s counterculture went on to make the techno-utopian ideology that suffuses our techno-dystopian reality": https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5ibHVicnJ5LmNvbS9mZWVkcy9qYWNvYmluLnhtbA/episode/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5ibHVicnJ5LmNvbS9qYWNvYmluLzc1Mzg5MzkxL2RpZy1jb3VudGVyY3VsdHVyZS10by1jeWJlcmN1bHR1cmUtd2l0aC1mcmVkLXR1cm5lci8?ep=14
I just found this piece by @devinprater about formatting for the blind. And it reminded me of older formatting techniques we had in MS-DOS that were also more accessible than the WYSIWYG stuff in graphical interfaces. Reveal codes in WordPerfect, or the dot commands in WordStar. We had full control over this stuff; and then came Windows. #noxp
Blood mention, covid, medical paraphernalia
Since October we've been doing regular swabs for the Office of National Statistics, every couple of weeks or so, we were lucky to be randomly selected and have had dozens of Covid tests. Now they've added antibody blood tests and extended the study until April 2022. I have the worst needle phobia but these little self-administered lancing tools were fine. The increased heart rate got the blood pumping too and I filled the sample tube in no time at all.
