Ghost vs. HEY world on TheDent.net or HEY world


Test


Test again to see if a post I make actually posts …

Is it normal for it to take 10mins > for posts to turn up on micro.blog? Why is this still a problem so far into its life?


I was going to update my Photos page on micro.blog with some new pictures but the Glass profile page is so pretty I think I’ll just remove it and add a link to Glass instead. Saves posting twice I suppose.


I’m baaaaaaack … for a while! :D


How To Train Your AirPods

Apple has released many products over the years, with many of them quickly becoming a pop culture icon. The iPod, the iPhone and now the AirPods. I’m a huge fan of the AirPod range and have some AirPods Pro and AirPods Max and use them daily.

A few months back, Apple launched the spatial audio feature on Apple Music. This received some rave reviews and, while it sound quite good, especially with the AirPods Max I really couldn’t tell all that much difference between a spatial audio enabled track and a standard one. I’m not an audiophile so I don’t pretend I even really understand many of these so called audio enhancements. I stubbled across something, recently, however that has quickly improved the quality of the audio I’m getting from my AirPods by a noticeable amount. It’s something I’ve never seen anyone write about, so I wanted to share it with you all. It’s quite possible I just missed the posts and this is common knowledge. If so, please go about your business 😃


I’m loving this camera on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.


Currently reading: The Long Walk by Stephen King 📚. This is a very odd one so far, but as always very engaging.


I’ve had a list of blog posts I’d considered writing in Reminders since February. How many have I actually written? Not a one!


I resubbed to micro.blog with the best intentions of blogging and, two weeks later, still nothing. Time to cancel again me thinks :-/


Currently reading: Salem’s Lot by Stephen King 📚


Finished reading: Family Upstairs: A Novel by Lisa Jewell 📚


It may be time to admit that Battle Royale’s are just not for me.


I’m a terrible streamer, but I’ve started to get a few uploads done so far. I’ve started to stream my gaming to YouTube as myself, instead of using the The Dent Gaming page I setup. I may revert to that later however.


I always find the stupidest reasons not to write on my blog. The current ‘excuse’? I don’t like the name I was using before and now can’t decide on a new one. Until I have a name and a logo etc. I seemingly can’t write. Procrastination incarnate.


I never get bored with how nice the Apple Books app is to use.


I’ve been using only iCloud mail for all my email for a few months now and, while it doesn’t basically all I need and I’ve been liking it, the search is just terrible. I may need to move back to Gmail just to find emails when I need them, which is kinda important!

Does anyone know if it’s possible to embed a YouTube page / channel into a Page on micro.blog at all? I mean can I make a ‘YouTube’ Page on micro.blog that, once opened, will just have an embedded player of my most recent video perhaps?


If I didn’t come back to micro.blog I’d have signed up to Hey again for Hey World, so I think worst case coming back was the best decision, right?


Well, I’ve re-subbed to micro.blog once again … I’m still going to be terrible at actually posting, but I’m going to give it another stab. I think I may ‘rebrand’ from TheDent.net to just andynicolaides.com, however. It’s not a very catchy / attactive name, but does make more sense for a personal blog I’d think. I do like my The Dent logo, however …


Reeder is such a well made app, and feature rich, but NetNewsWire is so clean, light and quick I think I’ve gotta start using that.


I haven’t posted on the social part of micro.blog or blog blogged for over a month. Time to hiatus this badboy again?
