I’m never not surprised by Biden’s “tail” … I would move on from any stylist who cut my hair that way, but … I guess after 1 million years that’s the way he likes it.

My 12yo got obsessed with Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and then we discovered there’s a swear word in it. I’ve modeled not swearing for my kids, but don’t particularly shy away from them hearing swears. We laugh about it when we hear one. After adding more Green Day songs to the rotation we’re ... danielpunkass.micro.blog

The greatest evidence of my maturity is my listening to an acquaintance rant about never buying an iPhone again because Apple deliberately slowed down their phone, and me just nodding and then shaking my head compassionately.

A high point in parenting: playing badminton competitively with my 11yo, sweating in the heat, powered by an AC/DC and Green Day soundtrack.

I don’t think Biden’s supporters understand that we need every press conference to be filled with at most ONE egregious error or misspeak. Even one feeds the narrative, but more than one is deadly.

I don’t have a problem with Biden flubbing names, or details, or whatever. But I do have a problem with every mistake creating a new news cycle, and we’ll never escape it. Tarnished goods, I’m afraid to say. We need new energy. Kamala for President.

“Vice President Trump” … he’s done. He can’t keep campaigning. These are unforced errors, and they’re only going to accumulate. I totally get the argument that media is making a mountain of a molehill, but the molehill is actually a foothill. We know where it leads. We have to bail and hope for the best.

I was thrilled to see Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo flying a pride flag deep in the heart of, well, you know…

Three flagpoles against a partially clouded sky: one US Flag, one Michigan Flag, and one Pride Flag.

The west coast of Michigan is an under-appreciated beach paradise. If the water were a little warmer you might call it the Midwest Caribbean.

A year ago I happened on a group of swimmers who embrace our local Mystic Lake as a year-round sanctuary. I swam as a kid, but have only been swimming in pools for the past few years. I was terrified about swimming across a whole huge, unfamiliar lake. I started slow, and the fear dissipated. Now I swim ab... danielpunkass.micro.blog

I filed FB13997301: “Regex breakpoints are not reflected in Xcode breakpoints navigator and source”

Holy crap. Best new feature I’ve seen in Xcode 16 Beta: simple breakpoints set in the lldb console are reflected in the UI. No need to reset them on every launch. Unfortunately, regex breakpoints are still not reflected nor settable via UI. Can I dare to dream?

Enjoyed a reference in “The Big Door Prize” to “The IT Crowd”, where Chris O’Dowd’s character, referring to the Morpho machine, suggests “unplugging, then plugging it back in again”, as his prior character would have done.

@markstoneman Not as of yet. It would require an expansion to the API that MarsEdit uses to post to Micro.blog. Not a bad idea, though. @manton

@manton In fact it's a kind of stopgap for proper stationery support. I was kind of interested to learn though that "Duplicate" is a standard mechanism of the AppKit document model. That's why I went with that naming, at least for now.

@matti Yeah, I noticed the bug about the number of posts downloaded being off. Interesting that it's with one of those posts, I can't see anything obviously wrong with either. I'll take a closer look soon!

@petebrown @matti I'm going to look into whether MarsEdit can try to recover more gracefully in this situation. If you wanted to confirm this is the issue, you could set the "Number of Posts to Download" in MarsEdit's blog settings to some smaller number until the bug goes away.

@petebrown @matti Hey folks - @manton and I took a deep dive on this today and after scratching our heads a long time finally discovered the likely root of the problem: unexpected invisible/illegal characters somewhere in the feed. I finally found an example of one in my own posts. It causes my XML parser to fail, but it tries its best to recover, and in the process loses the formatting.
