For those of you coming in on the #twittermigration, it may take some time to get used to the slower pace here. I had tens of thousands of followers on the bird site. The community is smaller here, and there is no recommendation engine pushing content onto your feed.

You community here is what you make it. Take it slow. Enjoy it. Let your nervous system adapt to less stimulation. I suspect it's good for you.

It has certainly been good for me (and I used to make my living on Twitter).

It did get me curious about how hard it is to bolt all these pieces together and it turns out… not bad?

📣 At the end of March I had my last day at . It’s been a heck of a ride these past 5 years and it was definitely hard to say goodbye to such a brilliant team.

If you follow me and haven’t tried it yet… I mean, come on. Just do it. 🫵 vivaldi.com

So, what‘s next? 😁👇

There's a new version of #Vivaldi Browser out today.

vivaldi.com/new/

I know it's not fully open source and it's Chromium based, which makes it a non-starter for some, but there's some pretty cool new features in 5.1. :vivaldi: Vivaldi is pushing hard on the horizontal tab scrolling, but for me the Reading List is the big seller. I don't need the horizontal tab scrolling if I have a reading list.

@kev Well, I'd say that #Vivaldi is the best alternative out there, but why would you take my word for it.

Oh, Laptop Magazine has come out and said the same thing. Among others.

It's a fact. Vivaldi rocks.

Turns out, Facebook is a nightmare in handling subrip uploads for video captions. Followed every bit of help/walkthrough/support advice and STILL couldn't get it to work.

Only thing that worked? "Save with encoding --> UTF-8" in Sublime.
