Just released an update (v1.3.4) for my Notes app.

Various interface improvements.

I'm looking at implementing search next, but want to get it right - so far I'm looking at stemming algorithms and stop word lists…

..whatever I do I need to be (possibliy) multilingual!


@brandon @chucker Bin just looks and sounds wrong. Wastebasket was too wordy.

There was nothing wrong with Trash - it was the correct computing terminology for where the files you don't want go.

A 'Bin' is something under the kitchen sink that no one wants to empty.

After a week of using I've found out the thing that's not so good about it (the UK version, anyway...)


Maybe my favourite Bowie song is Ashes to Ashes - listen to it!

The arrangement is impeccable.

If you're in to such things the video is awesome too

Since I was old enough* to know exactly what music was I have loved the Beatles.

*note: nearly 5 years old when I started to play the violin.

But, as I age my I ideals change a bit...

I can't help thinking, each time I listen to Bowie, that he is maybe even a bit better?!?!?

Musically, Artistically, lyrically. And maybe also more consitent...

...of course 'I am the Walrus' is still the best song ever written!

Listening to Bowie...

'My brain hurt like a warehouse...'


For the record I *am* English -- this is *my* language!

'Been'? past participle of 'be'. Looks completely wrong to me. I haven't spoken or written English for a while -- it looks like Dutch or something ;)

Have been getting my Notes app to respect MacOS accent colors & correct use of transparency in the interface…

Once again a productive Saturday morning!

"Adobe is cutting off users in Venezuela due to US sanctions" Another example how dangerous it is to rely on proprietary and rented software. This can't happen to you if you build your business on top of #FreeSoftware which is the only software you really own. theverge.com/2019/10/7/2090403

MacOS accent colours with generated light and dark variants. (needed for an app).

@chucker understood.

I'm running a 2.3Ghz Quad-Core Intel i5
with 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3

and I haven't had spotlight problems


on previous computers / systems it has given me *big* problems -- so, I understand.

I guess I've been lucky this time!

@chucker There is no problem with alerts - that's for sure.

So far I haven't had any problem with spotlight, although I had several problems with it on my old Mac with previous versions of MacOS.

The only thing I've had to do so far is copy my old .bash_profile to .zhhrc

Unpopular opinion I'm sure, but it turns out that is really good.

@djmoch ah, thanks for the info. I was wondering why the change.
