Switching to an iPad pro 12.9ā€ as my main computer (along with iPhone) is proving really refreshing and enjoyable. Using essentially one OS is becoming more intuitive and Iā€™m glad I kept my old favourite Apple Magic 1 keybord - until perhaps the Satechi Aluminum Slim Bluetooth Keyboard becomes available again - but I shall get a larger monitor.

Quick evolution of my drawing of leaves! This one pencil on cartridge paper (1986), previous leaf on drafting film, before that watercolour on Arches smooth paper and finally a Procreate drawing on an iPad (3rd Gen.) Now I have an iPad pro 12.9ā€, working on some new stuff šŸ˜ƒšŸŽØ

The MapFinder replacement by OS Maps has prompted me to move to Viewranger I can still get the UK OS maps plus everywhere else. A more sophisticated product.

Just started reading a book bought for my birthday last year, now I’ve moved house (twice) and really enjoying it. A fascinating account of an early fighter pilot’s life James McCudden Flying Fury šŸ“š

Test from micropublish to my test micro.blog using location information and the swarm plugin - successful šŸ‘

Hey my micro.blog-swarm plugin is live on the list github.com/microdotb… šŸ˜ƒ

Foursquare Swarm is now working via OwnYourSwarm to micro.blog articles and map. Can’t find any issues so far… hopefully plugin to come https://hall-test.micro.blog/2020/07/13/the-morritt-country.html

Map Plugin now varied to accept Foursquare logins via OwnYourSwarm - creates a link to and from a micro.blog map. @manton Example: hall-test.micro.blog/2020/07/1…

GeoTag plugin

OK so the GeoTag plugin is working OK now with the Kiko theme. There is a duplication of the css link in the head of the page, but better than leaving-out the javascript link as it was at first. There are styling issues with other themes, but I’ll have to find a happy medium so it generally works. Warning though - it uses the “Title” field for coordinates, so not for everybody. I get my coordinates using a shortcut from Apple maps on my iPhone which opens Gluon - because the Title field is always available and you don’t have to paste in lots of text to reveal it. šŸ‘ GeoTag plugin on Github

Hmm, do I want Cyph? Now that Zoom has acquired Keybase I’ve got an invite to join Cyph, but not sure if I want a new secure (even if it is the most secure) messaging/encryption solution, with Bitcoin wallet… Did you jump @eli ?
