In-reply-to » @manton I've been way into language exploration lately (especially older/retro-based concepts) and it's surprising that both a) this is not the norm and b) it was a thing decades ago. Examples: Lisp, Clojure, Python importlib/imp & Gunicorn, Elixir/Erlang, Smalltalk, Sonic Pi. Sounds like a lot, but not compared the landscape! 😄

Just pushed out another TestFlight beta of Micro.blog 3.0. This has some really nice new stuff for managing uploads. Also the return of basic photo filters! Getting closer. Still missing: share sheet.

@numericcitizen I’m not planning on creating a group for Micro.blog over there. It would be fun but based on our experience with Slack, it would inevitably be a support channel and I think email/forums is better for that.

@iChris Heh. We haven’t updated it in a year, sadly. I’d love to do more with it or maybe integrate it into the main app eventually.

I’ve been playing with Wavelength Messenger. Not to be confused with our own Micro.blog companion app for podcasts, also called Wavelength! I wish it was called something else, but ignoring that I think there’s a lot to like. John Gruber’s introduction is the best place to start.

Worked a bunch this weekend trying to decommission an EC2 server (hosting App.net archives!) by moving millions of little files to S3. Taking forever, often failing. I’ve been maintaining this for years and really want to turn the page on it, but can’t accept losing any data.
