"This is great. I'm glad you guys are working together, and this is what I hoped would come from the work I did making it work with the filesystem." - Dave Winer

Re: What should a linkblog look like in 2015 - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Very nice! Thank you. Thing is that I have a lot more content that isn't showing up anywhere. So I'm afraid it's going to be more like the linkblog and less like today's scripting news. However that does not mean fewer pictures, because with Little Card Editor, I am generally doing more pictures, not fewer. They just have to be part of the flow at the linkblog in a nice perhaps even beautiful way. I love news.layervault.com. That's exactly the kind of input I'm looking for." - Dave Winer

"You could read the linkblog instead. http://radio3.io/users/davewin... Everything that's on Scripting News is on the linkblog, without the pictures that you dislike so much. My blog isn't really about the reader experience, btw. It's a place for me to develop ideas about blogging. I know that might be confusing, because most other people's blogs have different goals. But I do it for me, not you. Sorry." - Dave Winer

Re: Bare bones River4 howto - http://river4.smallpict.com/2014...
"Interesting idea. Is there a howto somewhere that says how to do that?" - Dave Winer

"The contents of the folder are designed to work if the whole folder is accessible over the web, which was the only configuration possible until this change. So index.html won't work when you try to open it locally. We will fix this, but not in the next few days. If you can arrange to have that folder accessible through a web server it will work." - Dave Winer

"I wiped the slate clean since 0 of the comments had anything to do with the question I asked. If you don't have anything to contribute, that's fine, but don't take up space with that. PS: A good way to get moderated is to begin a comment with "I know this is off-topic, but.."" - Dave Winer

"Honestly I don't think any of you have absorbed the real question I'm asking. It's right there in the headline of the post. I'm not uploading CSS, I'm asking about design. If you don't have anything to add to that, then you're off-topic." - Dave Winer

Re: What is RiverBrowser? - http://river4.smallpict.com/2014...
"1. They're not just for my own feeds. If you edit a post in Fargo, the feed it produces will have the <source:outline> element in it that this is connecting with. It also should work for Radio3 items that are tweets. 2. This is the most bleeding edge stuff, lots of loose ends and design questions remain. I have to let this settle in a bit before I'll see how to address all the issues." - Dave Winer

"I've only bought my T-Mobile phones from Apple, but I would be surprised if the ones that T-Mobile sells require any unlocking. You might want to verify that if it's important to you." - Dave Winer

Re: The lost art of software testing - http://scripting.com/2014...
"It's even worse, without basic regression testing, important features break, and stay broken. Chrome has been plagued with serious problems over the last few years. They do get fixed, but they last a long time, and they're the kinds of things that should never make it to users. It's hard to believe they use this software themselves it's so broken. Problem is Firefox and Safari are no better. And we stopped using MSIE because it became completely unusable, and they didn't care to fix it. If we want it to change, we can make it change, by organizing the information and making sure it's public, not hidden, the way it is today." - Dave Winer

Re: iOS 8 is doing something with RSS - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I don't like this comment at all -- it assumes I think it's good for Apple to be doing "Something" with RSS. Because when they do something, later they take it out, or worse, put up a dialog scolding you for wanting to look at a feed. Their confusion is not a good thing, and this is an example of that not-good-thing. Further using the d-word in conjunction with anything is not cool, even you're saying somehting is not D. Drop the whole idea. RSS is a format, it's not alive, and it sure as hell isn't and never was and never will be D." - Dave Winer

Re: Using RiverBrowser with River4 - http://river4.smallpict.com/2014...
"That's great to hear. ;-) Keep an eye out for other problems. That was a bit of sloppy programming, and this is all new code, so there are likely to be other problems. Thanks for staying with this." - Dave Winer

"Do you have a pointer to a writeup of the problem??" - Dave Winer

Re: Using RiverBrowser with River4 - http://river4.smallpict.com/2014...
"Any news on whether the fix worked??" - Dave Winer

"It'll take a while to get to check or fix this. Sorry. One would think the browser would stay pretty constant across OS versions. ;-)" - Dave Winer

Re: iOS 8 is doing something with RSS - http://scripting.com/2014...
"That makes sense -- they bundled their Podcast app with iOS 8, and it can't be removed. But the behavior is pretty senseless. When I click on the feed for Scripting News it asks if I want to subscribe to the podcast. It's true I do occasionally include a podcast in my feed, but that's not really most sensible thing. I wish there was some way to influence them here, they clearly, as a company, do not understand or love RSS. Why not let people who do love it help them. Oh well. Get ready for iOS 9 when they do something else completely irrational. ;-(" - Dave Winer

Re: Using RiverBrowser with River4 - http://river4.smallpict.com/2014...
"Good. Thank you for testing it so thoroughly. When this is through, you can have another career as a software tester. :-) I do really appreciate your help. Want to be sure you know that. And I may have fixed the problem. At least in the case I was seeing, it's fixed. Please try it yourself and let me know if it works for you." - Dave Winer

"Okay that helps a little. Now please also pay attention to the questions I ask, and next time, try to give more info. What Twitter account were you using? Did you follow the instructions for setup above (especially item #2). How many times did you try it? Did it fail every time?" - Dave Winer
