I had no expectations for Avengers Infinity Wars and was really blown away by it all. It was extremely entertaining and very satisfying. Always love seeing how writers work an ensemble cast, especially if they do it successfully.

Trying to remember all the businesses that I followed on Facebook in order to add them to my RSS feed reader. It's sad how many companies don't have an RSS feed for PR or news releases. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

My Micro Monday pick is @rogerscrafford. He repairs guitars 🎸 and wanted to know if anyone out there on microblog land plays guitar too. Let him know!

  • Multi user
  • Custom fields
  • Templating system
  • Plugins

Super cool video review of the 9.7” iPad by @settern created totally on the 9.7" iPad and Apple Pencil. Really amazing work!

Apple says ‘Stop the leaks!’, so someone internally leaks the memo about stopping the leaks.

For myself, I really wish the leaks would stop because I like being surprised at Apple events.

Follow up on little bird from yesterday. Checked up on it before leaving for work and it was nowhere to be found. Sun wasn't up yet either. Checked all over the garage and under the car, in the wheel wells but no sign of it anywhere. Hope it stays safe!

This little guy fell asleep in the driveway and wouldn’t leave. Put ‘em into a box in the garage for the night. Hopefully it’s mama comes or it wanders off on its own when the sun comes out tomorrow.

If a link appears at the end of a sentence do you end the link before or after the period? Asking for a friend.

It’s always fun to see what Eric Johnson is using on tour. Interesting that he's using a Two Rock for his dirty tone and the echoplex just for the preamp tone. He also brought out all the old MXR rack delays.

Maybe a good way to find out who’s following you on micro.blog is to just ask? “If you’re following me, let me know!” Or similar.
