I just released a new version of Media Kraken with some improvements. If you had your Solid POD on solid community and the application stopped working, this update should fix your data and get you back on track!

Check out the release notes for more details: github.com/NoelDeMartin/media-

It seems like this starting to become a reality! (maybe it already was when I tooted this and I didn't know πŸ˜… )

Here's 3 solutions I've found so far:
- remo.co
- airmeet.com
- wonder.me

And some people has recommended hubs.mozilla.com, but I'm not sure it has the UX I had in mind.

I started using TailwindCSS a while ago and now I use it everywhere. I was skeptic at first, but it's a perfect pairing with Vue and other component-based frameworks. Now that 2.0 is out it's a great time to give it a chance!

"These machines are the first general purpose computers ever where you have to make an exclusive choice: you can have a fast and efficient machine, or you can have a private one... Short of using an external network filtering device like a travel/vpn router that you can totally control, there will be no way to boot any OS on the new Apple Silicon macs that won’t phone home, and you can’t modify the OS to prevent this."

So, Google Photos will stop providing unlimited storage for free.

Who's surprised about this? Nobody, I hope. I actually believe this is better, but I don't like the bait and switch strategy. Whenever I see news about Google Photos, the story of Everpix comes to mind.

I just finished Caleb Porzio's VSCode course. Improving your workflow doesn't happen overnight, I've been introducing small changes for weeks. It's been a transformative experience, I'll never look at my programming environment the same way. Check it out! makevscodeawesome.com

So, is finally out and looking great! And I'm so happy they skipped the "N" for the naming and went with One Piece! :D Now that sticker on my laptop is even more suitable!

RSS + SRS = RSSRS? I enjoy podcasts and blogs, but sometimes I feel like they go over my head. There's also recency bias. I save my favourite ones thinking I'll go back to them, but I never do. So I've been thinking it'd be nice to build a tool to help with that. Maybe someday.

Two of my favourite bloggers, @dajbelshaw and Abhishek Chakraborty, just wrote on the importance of writing. I should really get started writing those 62 blog ideas I have on my backlog... πŸ™ˆ

After some months of side-project work, here's my new app. If you don't have a Solid POD, data will be stored locally and you can upgrade to Solid when you're ready! Media Kraken will help you keep track of your media, starting with movies in v0.1. noeldemartin.github.io/media-k

It's been years since I enjoyed a new manga as much as I'm enjoying Chainsawman. The last one was The Promised Neverland, but the last arcs have been quite disappointing.

Starting today, you can reach me at noeldemartin@hey.com. I'm so glad to finally ditch gmail and become a Basecamp customer!

But something important for everyone, not only power users, is who your email provider is. I share a lot of values with Basecamp, and that comes through in the product. I didn't with Google, and that's why I ended up using 3rd party clients.

In summary, my experience has been really good so far. To be fair though, I was already doing fine with my previous setup. Even though this is a big improvement, I feel it's only noticeable for power users. I get ~5 emails a day, so email has never been overwhelming for me.
