Good to see a post about what cadence sensors work with Apple Watch and how to use them. Will probably pick one up for my bike, even though I only ride indoors…

If you're using the EchoFeed service with Cloudflare on your domain, you'll want to add this rule to make sure that EchoFeed doesn't get stopped by Cloudflare's bot fight mode.

@craigmcclellan it’s absolutely crazy what they do and get away with. I guess maybe they just can’t be bothered to do their job?

I can’t understand why FedEx claims that they attempted to deliver a package when they clearly did not. I was home the entire time and a FedEx truck never came down my street.

@manton Ah! I spoke to soon! I'm seeing this in the logs for my feeds Feed: Unknown error 403 Forbidden, Net::HTTPForbidden.

I don't see micro.blog being blocked on Cloudflare, but I did find this recent post about CF and Imunify360. Is there a way to see what micro.blog encounters when trying to get to my feed? Maybe that could help me figure out if it's possible to fix with my current hosting company or any that use Imunify360.

@alpower this is my third synth project and so far, it’s been fun to learn how all of this stuff works. I probably have way too many projects going on, but I really wanted one of these. Hoping to use it with the Norns to do some ambient/soundtrack stuff.

@jedda I hope you like your new camera! The one you'd prefer really depends on what you regularly take photos of. I've heard lots of folks say that 28mm is too wide, but if you can "zoom with your feet" it's fine. I like 28mm for the added context it can give. 40mm is great sometimes but too tight at other times.

I really like the HDF version and have a tendency to just leave it on except in really low light situations.

@jedda I have the GR III Street Edition and the GR IIIx HDF. I've been carrying the HDF since I got it back at the start of April, but recently switched out for the GR III. I like them both and usually spend a few weeks out of the month with each. I enjoy the 28mm field of view but the 40mm is nice for reach. I've really been having fun with the HDF feature on the IIIx.

@jsonbecker they also have every Tube Screamer in one pedal too.

I built a 6 sound Rat clone from BYOC a while back and it's cool, but I don't think they sell that kit anymore.

Leica announced the D-Lux 8, a stripped-down version of the 2018 D-Lux 7 with the same 21MP Micro Four Thirds sensor and f/1.7-2.8 lens but resembling a mini Leica Q. Not much of an update. Other than software, I doubt there are many changes under the hood, but there will be accessories (lol)! Camera make... updates.ohmypizza.com

@alpower I haven't had a chance to go through any of my photos from the GRIIIx HDF yet, but if you want to see some samples of what it can do, check out Ricoh Japan's GRIII HDF page and this recent video from the Verge.

@kimonostereo

@alpower I have both the GR III and a GR IIIx HDF. I have the ND set to auto on the GR III so it just turns on in situations where I'm using a slower shutter during bright shots. With the HDF, it's really easy to turn on and off with the dedicated button, so I just turn it on when I want a bit more softness to the image.

@Munish GRIII and GRIIIx are essentially the exact same camera with different focal lengths. GRIII has the “classic” 28mm (wider, more context) and the GRIIIx is 40mm (closer, more subject/detail focused). The HDF versions remove the ND (neutral density) filter add a special Highlight Diffusion Filter that can be activated to make the photos a bit softer feel in certain lighting conditions.

My advice is if you’ve never handled a Ricoh GR before, try to find a place that has one before you purchase so you can see if it works for your needs.

Strange issues with my Amazon packages this week. One was expected yesterday and another today. Both say they are now delayed until Friday. Tracking shows that the package arrived, then left an Amazon facility in Honolulu, but later shows "Package delayed in transit". Shouldn't it just be a handoff to USPS?

I wish I had some clever predictions for Apple”s iPad event happening in a few hours but I don’t. Perhaps I’m just tired of waiting for Apple to free the iPad of its limitations. Maybe they’ll release something amazing that finally sets the iPad free but I’m not holding my breath.

Writing this down for posterity. My one prediction for Apple's A.I. offering(s) during WWDC this year will be branding their A.I. as "Apple Intelligence".

It would be a missed opportunity if they don't. I also feel they need to put the Siri brand to rest.
