iOS7 beta2 is very unstable, crashes a lot, finicky about having video and music content loaded on it. Time to write some bug reports.

Saw the moon in the morning sky, a little higher than yesterday. If I had to guess, I’d say maybe 12° higher? (360°/29)

graulund Looks like the closing of the old Twitter API broke Tweet Nest. I’m afraid I don’t have time to fix it until after I graduate this month.

Trying to track down a problem with “TweetNest”, then noticed the author @graulund knows all about it. I should’ve checked Twitter first.

In iOS7 photo app, if you pinch a picture too much, it’ll pop out to the album view. That’s an awkward gesture overload.

I still think the arrows on git version trees look “backwards”.

D1 made me a self-opening Father’s Day present. But as we saw yesterday, she was limited to 35 grams or less.

Uh oh, I can’t figure out how to “shuffle all of one artist” on iOS7. I can only find “shuffle one album”.

chockenberry Just had a thought about iOS 7: how are all the kids that don’t read and use shapes to navigate going to fare?

Trying out iOS7. So far, it ate all of my apps and data. I see some quality time with iTunes in my future.
