I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

Huh. I have never had a prob with it! xposts.

Instapaper works offline, weeks later, so I am thinking it is actually archived on the device? But yes you do have to load it up at least once.

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 11 May 2017 14:57 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i guess it depends if the use case is archive for posterity or keep around in case i have time for a longread on a flight

𝔠𝔞𝔢𝔨 (caek), Thursday, 11 May 2017 14:58 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I don't actually organize stuff on Instapaper though, it's really just a "read later" mechanism for me. I have resigned myself to never actually having usable offline archives of anything since I barely have time to read stuff in real-time much less a year later. I occasionally fantasize about being the kind of person who has meticulously catalogued history of all the pertinent articles I've ever read, or plan to read, organized around projects or subject matter. I wanted to buy Ulysses once. Like tears in the rain.

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 11 May 2017 14:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i used a thing called devonthink for that for a couple of years. it was a tremendous amount of work. now i just save to pinboard, put a search-friendly quote as the description, and accept the autosuggested tags, and hope the wget command he runs to archive actually saves the page (it often doesn't fully capture styling, but it's usually fine for the text)

𝔠𝔞𝔢𝔨 (caek), Thursday, 11 May 2017 15:01 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I forgot pinboard actually does some lightweight archiving!

mh, Thursday, 11 May 2017 15:15 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I love the idea of Pinboard but I care more about reading saved articles offline than ... all the other stuff. (I already have a solution for notes/links I want to save forever.) And none of the Android apps I looked at were good replacements for Instapaper.

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Thursday, 11 May 2017 16:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

what is the save links forever solution? (I use a text file)

Philip Nunez, Thursday, 11 May 2017 17:32 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i have a bunch of text files in notational velocity / dropbox

if it's something that i _really_ want to remember i put it on my blog, not because anyone reads it but because writing about stuff helps me think/remember

i have been meaning to unify the two systems for about ten years now

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Thursday, 11 May 2017 17:36 (two weeks ago) Permalink

so a "read offline" browser option would be enough, or do you want to be able to read them later 10 years from now, (like a mini personal archive.org)?

Philip Nunez, Thursday, 11 May 2017 17:40 (two weeks ago) Permalink

instapaper is working ok for me. (i was actually under the impression that pinterest quickly fixed several issues with best beloved marco's abandonware but guess i must be mistaken)

r|t|c, Thursday, 11 May 2017 17:46 (two weeks ago) Permalink

he kind of let it sit there without any changes for several years, it got an influx of capital after the majority was purchased by some venture capital thing and they released the mobile apps, then it kind of plateaued again until that recent pinterest acquisition

I think the only issue was it wasn't saving new links for a couple days because the server admin alerts weren't properly transferred over and the database ran out of space

yeah i just need good read offline functionality. the pinboard apps i looked at were all weirdly bad at that.

Uhura Mazda (lukas), Thursday, 11 May 2017 17:57 (two weeks ago) Permalink

tbh I use services like ifttt to pipe stuff from pinboard to instapaper, or files to dropbox

little workflows

I've had issues with instapaper not saving links for months. I'm done with it.

Does anyone have a good method for archiving a webpage? Say I read an article that’s only available in HTML, and I want a copy of it in my Dropbox. What would you do? I know you can create a PDF of a webpage in Safari, but is that usually of good quality? Is there another method? Anyone have any experience with this?

Are you all missing the obvious? In Safari you can just go File – Save As and it'll save it in web archive format, with images etc embedded, for offline viewing. It works pretty well.

Alba, Friday, 12 May 2017 12:17 (two weeks ago) Permalink

But yeah, if you just want the bare bones then Pocket works a lot better than Instapaper these days. Evernote can do it too.

Alba, Friday, 12 May 2017 12:19 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Hi all. Thanks for the responses.

I am not talking about read it later stuff like Instapaper and Pocket. I’ve used both of those, and now I use Reading List, which is built in to Safari. That stuff is fine for its intended purpose.

What I am looking at doing is creating a permanent copy of a webpage that I can store in Dropbox for later reference. I think mh was the one who brought up using a service to create an image of a webpage. That’s a possibility, although probably not ideal. (Perhaps I could do that in addition to something else.)

I could also create a pdf of a page, which might be the way to go. Unfortunately, Safari’s “Export as PDF...” kind of sucks ass. Is there a better tool that gives you an accurate pdf copy of a webpage?

Finally, I guess I could just download the webpage as a webpage and all of the included files too. (Someone might’ve mentioned some webarchive shit, whatever that is? Perhaps I should look into that.)

the ghost of markers, Wednesday, 17 May 2017 06:07 (one week ago) Permalink

Yeah. In Safari it's literally as simple as File – Save As.

It'll bundle up all the related images it needs into the one web archive file.

Alba, Wednesday, 17 May 2017 06:20 (one week ago) Permalink

yeah, Safari's webarchive is pretty good compared to older options, Chrome seems ok. If you want to evaluate how well it does, you can always try saving a page then killing your network connection to make sure you're seeing what's archived and not some trickery that's still pulling stuff from the web

mh, Wednesday, 17 May 2017 13:35 (one week ago) Permalink

Alba-- Interesting. Thank you.

mh-- Not sure I’ve ever done the webarchive thing, at least on purpose. Might have to try it out.

iCloud Photo Library issue: Photo Library seems to work fine between the iOS Photos app running on my iPhone 6 and the Photos app on icloud.com. The Photos app on my iMac, however, is stuck on “Updating...” and no new photos are showing up. This has been going on for a while, and I haven’t been able to figure out how to fix it. It sort of resolved itself at one point, but now it’s still fucked up. Thoughts? Do I need to go to the Apple Store?

the ghost of markers, Thursday, 18 May 2017 21:33 (one week ago) Permalink

Make a new smart album on your Mac called "Not on iCloud" and assign it this condition:
Photo - is - unable to upload to iCloud Photo Library

My guess is that a photo(s) somewhere on your Mac library is horking things up. Creating this album makes it easy to ID which one. Usually an export, delete, reimport the export does the trick.

ugh I'm overdue for an iPhone upgrade but all these iPhone 8 rumors make it look like something that you can't put in a case (possible home button/fingerprint sensor on the back, edge-to-edge display, etc)
