Although a little gimmicky, this looks pretty cool: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/903801945/hunu?utm_source=kickbooster-direct&utm_medium=kickbooster&utm_content=link&utm_campaign=e1501a4a
Saying goodbye to my UE Mini Boom today. Despite not being waterproof, this thing has accompanied me in almost every shower in every place I've lived for over 5 years. Been dropped countless times from various heights and doused with water often, but kept ticking. Unfortunately it doesn't really charge, and doesn't hold the charge for long when it does, so I'm afraid it's time to replace it.
Spent the day hacking on Vocal. Fixed several annoyances, and in the process figured out one of the main causes of instability that was introduced with the http://gpodder.net integration. Feels sooo much better now. So dang close to getting 3.0 out in users' hands.
Update: went pretty well! Sometimes the library was a bit too quiet - I work best when there's a constant murmur in the background. Coffee shops are my go-to - unfortunately there aren't any around me that are open past 5pm.
Since I refuse to use Spotify I can't do the #spotifywrapped thing, but here's my most played for the year. Basically it's just a mix between Hozier and Brandi Carlile.
I'll be back this weekend to get everything cleaned up and merged in, then upload our new strings for our translator community. Keep in mind Vocal should still be considered unstable, but I want to give everyone plenty of time for translations.
Spent the day addressing the last 2 major remaining engineering hurdles for Vocal's http://gpodder.net integration, so now it's officially time to celebrate turkey day!
Nice to see Microsoft's new Surface Pro tablet being designed to make it slightly easier for users to upgrade and repair. Really hoping this trend of improved repairability will continue! https://www.ifixit.com/News/surface-pro-x-video-teardown-most-repairable-surface-pro-ever
