Great suggestion from Mustang Matt re Fluid app. I have trouble on my 20-inch monitor getting a decent size balance between text for the chatroom & the video itself. When using Fluid to make the Mac&Forth website behave as a stand-alone app, the text/IRC portion of the window is larger than when using a web browser to access the show.
Found this in relation to the problem: An incomplete app called Asterisk>> "@haru:* ShootingStar has feature to fave the tweet by one-tap. so some people fave tweets randomly like a game * With the release of Asterisk, many Japanese Twitter users join App.net including some crazy guys * We are ashamed of inconsiderate newcomers."
Anyone notice the spam problem today on ADN? With certain accounts posting and starring absolute gibberish?
I actually think it's a good thing because it means more people are finding out about ADN. It's also as good a time as any to start addressing potential spam issues, which is going to plague any social network.
I'm pretty sure the Telcos will not allow FaceTime Audio to be used on their networks. However, having an instantly available VoIP baked right into OS could prove more advantageous than the video version. I'd still much rather take an audio only call over a video one.
Here's a few suggestions I offer to new ADN users whenever I feel it necessary: I suggest you follow @adnviews - excellent mini podcasts for new users there or follow via RSS on http://bli.ms/u/adnviews/rss. Tap/click on #new2adn & #new2adntip for hints. And you should visit bupk.es for a rundown on App.Net.
Going to Alpha.app.net will allow users to subscribe to another users unique RSS feed. So if you're on the freemium account & are restricted to following only 40 users, you could view extra users posts in an RSS reader.
Don't do anything, had a fall at a Mac User Group meeting and wrecked my left knee.
