"BTW, I hope this doesn't harsh your mellow, but after disabling Flash, and re-launching the browser, I tried closing a tab, and of course (you knew this was coming) the browser crashed." - Dave Winer
Dave Winer
"I've disabled it. Of course when I closed the tab that I disabled it from.. drumroll please -- Chrome crashed. Let's just hope that's a "residual" crash. Or Flash saying a final "fuck off" before it trails off. I seem to remember another vendor blaming Flash for all its problems, one that has a broken clipboard now just like Chrome! :-) BTW, I can't use Safari, because I depend on dropzones, and they don't have em." - Dave Winer

"Any clues on how to disable Flash runtime?" - Dave Winer

Re: Where do you put your curly braces? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"It's not just for commenting, it's also moving. If you can put the cursor on a branch of code, whether it's a for, else, switch, and drag it to a new location, and be done with it, that makes for more error-free coding, and more complex structures of code that work. I find this is esp important in JS, where you must indent, where in most other languages you wouldn't have to, because of the requirement of using callbacks." - Dave Winer

Re: Where do you put your curly braces? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"You know if we got a do-over, this is what's really going on -- it's a switch statement with two branches, and that as far as I know has never been an edge case for indenting. switch (val) { case 1: case 2: } Of course it has it's own design bug -- the requirement of a break. In UserTalk we fixed this, btw." - Dave Winer

Re: Use Dropbox in place of iTunes - http://scripting.com/2014...
"This is the kind of thing that should be a blog post. It should be looked into. But as a comment to my post, it isn't going to get the kind of attention it deserves. Would you post this to your blog?" - Dave Winer

Re: Use Dropbox in place of iTunes - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I haven't looked, and it can't possibly be better than the Dropbox solution, because I'm already invested in using it for other things, for Fargo for example. This blog post originates in Dropbox. Starting over with Amazon, nah, not going to do that." - Dave Winer

"Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. BTW, I've been using the new OPML Editor on my Yosemite machine to do real development, and it works perfectly. No problems at all. Thanks for doing this work Ted. Saved my ass." - Dave Winer

"Feedly doesn't do title-less items with any panache. It's really ugly, and totally unsuitable for this kind of traffic. They could fix it, and I hope they do, but so far they're just a stuck as Google Reader was. If you want, try an experiment. Subscribe to this feed in Feedly, and post a screen shot of what it produces. http://radio3.io/users/davewin... That's my linkblog feed. The stuff I send to Twitter and Facebook. They simply can't play in this space until they get this working. And you're missing out on some good stuff only available to Twitter and Facebook users." - Dave Winer

"The way I look at it is this -- if I get to 100K users, and I'm nowhere near that with any of the snacks, then my next round of users have to use RSS to connect. Win-win." - Dave Winer

Re: Tell the story of this picture - http://scripting.com/2014...
"If you were going to write a story from this picture, you'd have to say what was being said, evil or innocent, or somewhere between. Not that I really expect too many people to write stories here. It's pretty highly charged area. ;-)" - Dave Winer
