Very nice article and listening the recording right now: Chet Baker: Live in London
I was wondering if there is a string-instrument lower than the double-bass. Of course there is: the Octobasse. Why wouldn’t it?!

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.

I used Scrivener for my humble needs in the past but it is way too powerful for me. The upcoming version 3 though looks so nice on both platforms that I am tempted to give it a try again: 3 – That’s the Magic Number

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.
