.@mandsdigital stopped tweeting a year ago and I’ve not seen them hiring for a while. Have they ceased to be?

@nickdunn I think they must just have gone a bit quiet. @thesambarnes is hiring I think.

The iOS reminders app is rubbish and I've been looking for a replacement. Try 2 or hold out for 3 Barry?

For about a week, I’ve been able to receive webmentions but they haven’t been visible on my site. That is a bad experience for several reasons: The first is that it seems strange for someone to send a webmention and if they visit my site later to see…

@barryf A few hours later and I’m up-and-running. At home, where signal is patchy, I now get “O2 WiFiCall” in the top bar of my iPhone 7.

Last night I asked the amazing @krissygoround to marry me, and she said "...of course!". I love this creature! https://t.co/HCg6hUaYbx

@stevesmith2609 @krissygoround Congratulations to you both! Technically this counts as a Global/Venntro engagement :)

@timblair Coming soon to a bookshop near you: “Harry Potter and the Cache of Arguments”.

@themire Congrats, Julian. Cleo looks great.

I kept the original version at https://micropublish.herokuapp.com for backwards compatibility for you. Does the new version work well for Sweetroll?
