first, they sold exceptions to privacy tracking to Facebook and Twitter, now it comes out they've got a header override that allows them to set header exceptions on demand.
don't use this garbage.

@zladuric If I need more detailed data than that, I could always export my data using Google Takeout and import it in to a dedicated running app like Runtastic but at the moment it's tracking time, speed, and distance which is all I really wanted to begin with.
@zladuric That's really good, Google Fit is nowhere near as detailed as that! It seems to be geared more around encouragement to hit the World Health Organisation's recommended activity levels each week by abstracting activity in to "heart points" and "move minutes" each day, but it does provide a map of each activity like you've pictured, and lists distances, average speed, number of steps, calories burned etc which is all I wanted to track for running.
@zladuric Yeah, the "social" aspects don't appeal to me at all. I'm tracking this stuff for me, not to broadcast it! In the end I've been trying out Google Fit, as it was already installed on my Pixel and auto-tracks walking, cycling, and running which is quite useful.
@bobstechsite That's interesting! Wish I hadn't sold my childhood Megadrive. I remember plugging headphones in to it and being blown away by how much better everything sounded than through the little mono speaker CRT TV it was always plugged in to 😁

Not knowing everything isn't a failure, and even seasoned devs are constantly learning.
Wow. Just wow. If you’re using #GoDaddy it might be time to re-think that.
@caffeine Yeah, I once did a mass migration of repos from Bitbucket to GitHub at an old job. It's not a lengthy process, more a question of whether I really gain anything from migrating tiny personal repos that I'm not collaborating with anyone on 🤷♂️
Either way, free private repos are good! 🎉
