This is a good step. I expect to see a whole slew of cloudkit dashboard services pop up soon.

Sorry I'll set aside some time this weekend to re-evaluate the fonts and color choices.

Oh thanks. I totally see your side! Sorry. I definitely want this to be supported by a paid membership eventually but I think it's unreasonable to demand that right away and am willing to put out as good content as I can at the moment so I can earn trust but I felt I needed a channel to communicate with those who find this content interesting and I consciously picked email over RSS after deliberating for a while.

> Will it be a platform for other authors too?

Yes I do want to have other's have shows with their own individual style as long it adheres to being BS and grandiose free.


Is opting to pay inside with card only in some states?

The problem is most gas stations are pre-pay now. So if you want to pay with CC inside, you have to make two trips -- one to give them your card to hold onto while you pump gas, and a second trip to finalize the transaction and get your card back. Unless you know you are buying exactly $xx.xx of gas (and not a fill up), then you could just do one trip to the register.

[This talk by Tavis Rudd](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SkdfdXWYaI) about a system he used when his hands were afflicted with RSI is pretty interesting.

Not entirely a no-hands approach, but I can't seem to remember the developer who made his first app in the hospital by typing with one/two fingers. He wrote a blogpost about his process that was really inspiring.

Ever since I first saw that talk, I've been checking his github page to see if he's pushed his code yet. Not that I'm judging; if I had a dime for every project I totally intended to push to github "once I clean up the duct tape", and then didn't, I'd probably have, like, a dollar.

Other people have pushed source code to github so you can stop waiting.

After hearing this talk, I used this repo as an inspiration to get started on my own setup: https://github.com/dictation-toolbox/aenea

Works well for me, but with some friction from reliance on a Windows VM.

Would be nice if Dragon could enhance their Mac product to be on par with their PC product. Even with Apple's recent resurgence it doesn't always get first class treatment.

-----


I think the quality difference might be due to a lot of government jobs where you people use dragon are on Windows.

- Jumping in on a screencast series about vim stuff. Although I'm kind of hesitant about it's reception I've decided to go through. - Other projects but honestly not near finishing them.

This is a good option, all images are svgs so you won't run into scaling issues, the quality generally very high, and all images are CC licensed (or public domain) with options to pay to waive attribution. The only tricky bit would be getting them into word in an efficient manner.

-----


They appear to offer PNGs of everything in addition to SVG so importing should be easy. Although you may lose some of the benefits of SVG.

-----


-----


What other licenses are usually on that list?

-----


This is such a cool series. Except it hurts that I can try out the tutorials live because the "metal code" doesn't run on either the simulator or my A6 chip containing iPhone 5. Off by one generation :(
