I wrote a detailed guide about how to your before its free unlimited storage goes away & how to make make your export usable!

It also includes a link to a tool I made with to help skip the hard work if you want! 😊

It's very early days, and I have a lot of design work to do, but is on its way to becoming a reality!

If you'd like to to making this alternative as good as possible, check out the project on GitLab. Ideas and designs will help just as much as code:

I just uploaded new features and bug fixes for (! There's custom alphabetical order, custom CSS, and more!

Check out the release notes for all the details:

(Hey, custom CSS means you can use fonts in your dictionary! Check this blog post to learn how to set it up:

I have a great idea for a web app that just helps content creators consolidate all of their giving platforms onto one pretty page with one link, and the perfect domain is available... wish I had more time for stuff like this

I should have added this as a caveat: "Especially on mobile or a variety of devices with non-traditional keyboards." Markdown is clearly the go-to for most people on keyboards these days, but it's hard to use on (especially) an iPhone keyboard without hardcore markdown autocompletion in an app.

Also to clarify: by "writing stuff online" I meant "composing text in a browser" as opposed to "writing content for the web"

What's your favorite formatting option for writing long posts in text editor a when writing stuff online?

(If you can, this for a wider audience!)

We finally took the kayaks out today, and it was super nice! A lot more relaxing than I expected, too.

I'm not sure if this is excellent or silly. Maybe both?

Like, is rendering CSS better than just loading a gif or bitmap? hard. I used to bang out a project in a week and now all I have is crazy long-term stuff

My partner and I are trying to determine if there's something wrong with both of us or if getting tons of phlegm and needing to clear your throat repeatedly after laughing really hard is actually normal... >_>''

Has anyone attempted to recreate Google Plus yet with its "circles" and whatnot?

Oh my god, Apple completely changed how their app works and now it's pretty much unusable for me. It's listing every episode in order from the beginning no matter where I had previously left off. This sucks.

I was thinking how cool it might be to make a voice that's my own voice, and this is the only free option I've found so far:

It's in France, and so far the 130 voice samples I've provided make me sound like I have a pretty intense lisp, but maybe if I just keep going it'll get better? Also, the iOS app is only available in the French App Store, which I can't access because apparently my Apple TV trial prevents me from changing my country?? 🤔

I also have no clue if I'll be able to like turn it into a voice I can use on my computer later or anything—the only option I see is to make it say some text with an audio watermark and then you can buy tokens to download the recording without the watermark.

its fucked up that the whole "new wi-fi standard thats going to be integrated into everything and allows continuous recognition and tracking of humans and objects in 3D space through walls" isn't something that anyone seems to really know or care about

Whatever waste collectors are getting paid, it's not nearly enough.

@joplinapp Also, in iOS, creating a new note doesn't auto-focus into any field... On desktop you can choose whether you want to auto-focus the title or body, but iOS just doesn't focus anything, leading to extra taps required.

I like , but I wish there was a good way to quick-add a note from mobile without needing to enter a title. Like, I know you /can/ do it, but it just grabs the first line as the title only the first time you edit the note. I like how Apple notes just grabs the first line no matter what instead of having a separate title field.


I learned about this strategy for accomplishing tasks yesterday that may be helpful for :

It's generally how I get things done already, so maybe I can harness it.

If you’re developing ethical alternatives to Big Tech, please set aside 50 minutes and watch a talk on experience design that I gave eight years ago. I promise you’ll have a fun time and whatever it is you’re making will be better for it.
