I don't like to dwell on difficult times, but there are often lessons that can be shared.

I’m not entirely convinced that working from home is a significant expense for employees. There are savings from commuting, eat out lunches and take-away coffee. I estimate my savings are over £200 a month, which should help with additional home heating.

I feel disappointed at the sight of the new iPhone 12 and 12 Pro being drop tested. The destruction of £1800 worth of technology is such a waste. I’ve had to think long and hard about taking out another two-year payment plan, yet vloggers are smashing the phones for views. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQc2jW_A3ik
@alangmarz Really glad you like the model we went with!
You can find some (slightly outdated) discussion on what people think about the #WriteFreely app over on our forum: https://discuss.write.as/t/writefreely-swiftui-multiplatform-app-mac-iphone-ipad/1664/10
Otherwise I just wanted to mention that we do plan to support the publishing API that iA Writer works with (Micropub). But if you need full blog management / cross-device syncing (not just publishing), we'd still recommend our app.
James Altucher. Is he right or wrong about voting?
I have often thought voting is a waste of time because the powerbrokers have it all sewn up. No matter who wins, a nation simply swaps one set of problems for another. https://jamesaltucher.com/blog/why-i-wont-vote-2/
@groff I’ve been amazed at how many Americans have been voting two weeks before the election date. We have never had people queueing at the polls here in the UK.
WriteFreely or @write_as (I get them confused) released an iOS app for their blogs. Has anyone tried the new app? iA Writer works with various platforms, so I’m curious? Kudos though to the developers for using a pay-once model instead of a subscription. https://blog.writefreely.org/writefreely-for-ios
