Today we’re introducing a search collection using emoji, starting with books. Just include 📚 with your microblog text about a book you’re reading or related topic, and your post will automatically be collected on /discover/books.
This is both a great feature and idea! Looking forward to check what other people have posted (or will post) and add my own reading lists.
The Magnus Archives teased the beginning of season 3 which is to be continued by the end of this month. Which is great news. The extra-amazing The Monster Hunters keep up with their one/two episode a year schedule and tease the promising title Queen of the Yeti Men. The teaser is already hilarious.
Looking forward to hear new episodes from either of these.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could browse, search, and insert photos from your Google account right to your blog posts and pages? Now you can.
This is a new addition to the Wordress editor and it’s certainly going to be useful. Right now it works in the WordPress.com/Calypso editor. I guess/hope that it will be eventually also available in Gutenberg. But who knows.
It’s great that there is no shortage to get content on the blog, albeit one might argue there’s too many defaults. There is the WordPress editor (both WYSIWYG and the text-only, then there’s Calypso, the WordPress/Jetpack one (in which I write right now and I actually like) and then there’s the soon-to-be default Gutenberg. And I’m not even talking about all the other 3rd party solutions.
I would say the more, the merrier. So there is most likely something for every need out there. I played around with Gutenberg a bit and liked, found it a bit too wibbly-wobbly at the moment still and just now realize that Calypso is actually rather nice. I might stick with this for a while again.
Leveraging the power of Sibelius | Cloud Publishing and running on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, you’ll soon be able to send Sibelius scores to the cloud for rendering that can be displayed in any web browser, posted on social media, and embedded in webpages and blogs, to be viewed by anyone, on any device.
This is a great addition and I’m looking forward to the 8.7 release. This feature will make some things a lot easier for me. It will be especially for sharing lines and or embedding stuff such as transcriptions here on the blog, not even talking about how it could be helpful at work.
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.
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.
