Fast as always I finally came around to process some of the images from last year. Took this one on the road to Narvik
Very nice! I just applied this here and it seems to be fast enough to avoid a FOUT, which has been major pain in the rear. Now nicely running one of my favourite fonts again.
In every design iteration, our individual versions evolved from the raw, to the complex, to the simple. Overall, we have reached a point where our adventure now leads, not back to a raw app, not onward to a more complex app, but upwards to a simpler app.
An interesting look and preview of what’s to come in iA Writer. Especially the hint that a Windows version might be in the works is interesting.
but we are now more than ever focused on offering iA Writer on different platforms.

The sweet spot for much of the music I prepare is around 7.5 mm. For studio sessions and other instances where music is sight-read, the stands are shared, and/or lighting is sub-optimal, 7.7 mm is nice; for chamber music that is likely to have the benefit of a lot of rehearsal, 7.3 mm or even smaller can be just fine.
Just finished another arrangement and these ideas are certainly useful. I usually stick to the default of 7.0 mm, but will give a slightly larger size a try. Either though feels a bit small on iPads. At least on the 9.5 inch models. I have yet to see music on one of the larger ones.
Ben Britton in Battling the Sticky G-sharp Key:
The conventional wisdom that gets passed around is to clean the pad with pad paper or a dollar bill, but a bit of liquid soap and water (or just some water in a real pinch) can go a long way. Use a toothbrush if you can to be thorough.
Ben has some helpful tips to help un-sticking the G# key. I was familiar with the Dollar-note (ie.coffee-filter) and the oil one, but soap/water was new to me. I will give that try next time the key acts up. Which is probably tomorrow.

Micro.blog’s cross-posting naturally works with long-form content or microblog posts. For longer posts, it includes the title with a link back to your blog. For microblog posts, it sends the entire text to Facebook.Micro.blog also parses your post HTML looking for img tags, downloads the photo and attaches it to the Facebook post. This means that microblog posts with photos look great on Facebook, but the source content is still on your own web site.
A nice new addition to Micro.blog. I haven’t updated, or posted anything to worth mentioning to Facebook since late 2009 (just checked, only automated posts from the blog), and this sound like a good way for me to post there. If nothing else, it might confuse people.
I used to have a blog on some of these and currently they seem to pop up again
It’s almost as it was a few months ago, but in between there were a lot of changes
It makes sense that hobbits would veer toward smaller pours because they are smaller people—you wouldn’t give a five-year-old a pint glass of juice because they have smaller stomachs and the glass would be harder to manage in smaller hands.
Ever wondered how much a Hobbit could drink? You’ll find the answer in this article. Brilliant!
The major difference is that in Google Drive articles are being saved as editable Google Docs instead of PDF files. This could be very handy if you want to post-process an article before re-blogging it
I totally missed this. This, together with the newly added WordPress publishing add-on for Google Docs is going to be useful.
