Can anyone recommend a good feed reader for that does well with both text and audio ? I recently subscribed to The Old Reader (https://theoldreader.com) and like how it lets you add text RSS feeds, , and channels, and I'm looking for a good app for it on my phone. I've tried , but it doesn't seem to work well with podcasts.

A feature in that is actually useful and will make it much more for all:

  • diagnostic namespace
  • diagnostic::on_unimplemented attribute

It will allow you to customize compiler error messages! :awesome:

It will be available in the next 1.78 🎉

Docs in Unstable:
https://doc.rust-lang.org/unstable-book/language-features/diagnostic-namespace.html

Stabilization PR:
https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/119888

We don't need postfix match, we need these kind of high-impactful features!

I'm having an issue with my Zoom recorder. I can't listen to any of my files on my phone or my Mac. I am told the .wav file is not a valid file. I have reformatted the SD card and a test recording seems to be working just fine. I also updated the firmware, so here's hoping whatever was wrong was fixed. Unfortunately, my audio recording of the plane taking off was lost, and the version I copied to my Mac is corrupted. My next flight is in May, so I will try another recording then.

Lynessence,

@munchkinbear The thing is, it did read one of my file. It may have been an issue with the SD card. After reformatting the card, I did a test recording and I was able to listen to it just fine on the Mac, and one of my CSUN talk recordings is listenable. Also, programming the date and time is not with the zoom h1 essential. The year is stuck on 2030, the month on January, etc. I hope this can be fixed in a future firmware update.

So, I've been arguing with myself over whether I should resurrect my account or not. From various sources, I get the impression that their platform isn't all that secure despite their claims. If memory serves, one of the sources said they wouldn't trust it with anything more than a casual conversation, and definitely wouldn't trust it with more sensitive topics. I'm not interested in using services, so things like & are not options I'd consider. At this point, my messaging options are and even though the latter isn't the most option. Heck, when you get down to it, the former has a few accessibility annoyances on which is the mobile platform I use. Decisions, decisions...

Hi all. How's everyone doing today? I have a question for those with who use natural remedies, particularly , to help with your illness, instead of or along with western medicine. My mom got me some stuff to start a since she thinks I'll love growing my own food and , and we also think it would be good to see if we can find any herbs that might help with my health issues. She seems to think it's enough to just look up herbs and what they do, but from what I'm reading, there's a lot more to it than that, since they might need to be prepared in a certain way, or there might be a certain tradition or way of use behind them, so I'm trying to find resources to teach me about herbs and how to use them, and maybe just natural and alternative medicine in general. There seems to be a lot of stuff on YouTube, but it's hard to know what's reliable or might be too visual since I'm . I've looked at online courses, but I don't know about and most cost a lot of money, which we don't have. Does anyone have any suggestions for where I can learn about herbalism, , and things like that in an affordable, way?

Apple Watch and the new widgets introduced in OS 10. The watch widgets are not just a way of scrolling through your watch complications. Watch widgets are totally separate. And in fact, I use widgets as additional complications that I might not access as much. Here is how to add, remove, and work with widgets on your Apple Watch.
To access and scroll through your watch widgets, on your clock face, just flick up until you hear widgets and double tap. A list of your current watch widgets will appear.
You can navigate from widget to widget in 2 ways. By turning the crown, and by swiping from one to another.

Editing watch widgets.
To put your widgets in edit mode, just double tap and hold on any of the widgets. It will bring up your list of widgets in edit mode.
To remove a widget, just flick up on the widget and choose remove while in edit mode.
To add a widget, just choose the add button at the beginning of the list while in edit mode. It will bring up a list of all of the different apps to choose from. Double tap the app you want to add a widget from, and it will bring up a list of available widgets from that app. Just double tap the widget you want to add from that app to add it to your widget list.

To rearrange the order of your widgets.
While in edit mode, go to the widget you want to move. flick up and choose pin. This puts it in arrange mode. Then just double tap and hold on the widget and drag it to the position in the list that you want.

Like I said, I personally use widgets as a way of having additional complications that I can access quickly, but maybe not access them as much. For example, on my watch face I have the complication of the current weather conditions. And as one of my widgets, I have the current days forecast.

I also noticed that the heart widget actually shows your current heart rate, where some face complications do not show this.

I am all about being able to access information easily and quickly. So I really like the new watch widgets, and since they can be totally different than your complications, I think they can be very useful. Great job Apple!

Back to using as my client on . There's a lot I like about , but I missed autocomplete, and Tweesecake has a habit of stopping responding and seeming to slow everything else down after a while of being open. Not sure if it's my crappy laptop or something else. There are things I like about both clients, but Semaphore seems to be the only one that works well in my situation for now. Hoping to eventually get a better computer, but can't afford it right now.

To #blind #techies, does anyone have any suggestions for a pair of noise canceling #headphones purchasable on #Amazon that can connect to my computer running #Windows10, preferrably wirelessly or through Bluetooth. It's even better if they can somehow also connect to a second device and let me hear when my mom calls my #iPhone. This would be something I could use with my computer on days when our dogs are barking a lot so I don't get such bad #SensoryOverLoad. Of course, they need to also either not have software for the computer, or that software needs to be somewhat #accessible. My budget right now is about $80, but I may have up to $120 or so if I wait a day or two.
