Scientists Use WiFi to See Through People's Walls
  • scientists bout to see me on the goddamned pot.

  • Electric Cars
  • Depending on the generation of CR-V, I suppose - and without any hard math/stats despite how hard I've tried - I suspect the net impact of your relative driving it for the rest of its usable life vs buying a brand new EV to be significantly less, considering Lithium mining, curb weight, etc.

  • The State of Tweet Mockups

    does anybody have/know of any still-working apps/services for creating mocked-up images of single Tweets?

    It occurs to me that I'm late in addressing this and panicking a little bit lol... Given the state of things, it definitively no longer makes sense to embed them imo... ( stopped working a few weeks back, anyway, which was a real wakeup call lol.)

    ... but obviously, I still come across Twitter content I absolutely want to retain every day.

    (if you're still not sure what I'm talking about - the exact same function as Re:Toot's exclusive purpose, but for Tweets instead of Mastodon posts.)

    I've inadvertently spent more than an hour this morning going back through my favorite old methods and loosely classifying their current states. lmk if anyone desires more details on that.


    Create a customizable, feature-rich Apple Reminder for a single file. | RoutineHub

    !Mocked-up iPhone 15 Pro screenshot of an example result of my File Reminder shortcut.

    I created this Shortcut to address a long-present and costly need of my own: interlinked, visible task management per single files of all types. It has begun to assist me in slowing the accumulation of redundant/duplicate/forgotten/lost files across all of my various file systems.

    Out of the box, this version requires Toolbox Pro for its whole function.

    Video Demo

    Shown are two methods:

    1. Running the Shortcut independently (which will show a file picker.)
    2. Running the Shortcut from the Share Sheet.

    Setup Steps

    1. Choose native Apple Files tag(s) to attach to the input file. (Optional)
    2. Customize behavior of the Change Case Action. (Optional)
    3. Customize the output format of the File Size detail. (Optional)
    4. Choose a List in Apple Reminders in which to add the Reminder result. (Optional)
    5. Choose whether or not the Reminder result will include an Alert. (Required)
    6. Choose the priority of the Reminder result. (Optional)
    7. Choose whether or not the Reminder result will be flagged. (Required)
    8. Choose tags (in Apple Reminders) to attach to the Reminder result. (Optional)

    Shortcuts for Timery and Charty?

    Howdy folks!

    Pretty straightforward ask: though Timery for Toggle new charting features + corresponding Shortcuts action are incredible and almost certainly all I'd ever need, I was wondering if anybody out there had ever taken the time to integrate Timery data with Charty via shortcuts actions.


    1 How awful was Steve Jobs as a person?

    Steven Ussery's answer: I worked indirectly for Steve Jobs off and on as a long-time Apple software engineer over the last 30 years. It was definitely a mixed bag when it comes to judging him as a person. He could be very nice, and he could be your worst nightmare. Different situations call for d...

    Goud bless. I also like how near Mr. Ussery's name is to the word usury, given the context.
