    On Jenn Schiffer’s pieces on Medium, and people getting or not getting satire, and why Medium’s good for it.

    @holgate Very true.

    @tomstuart I was watching Weekly Wipe last night and the similarities did strike me…

    @jennschiffer @gf3 Oops, yes, thanks. I meant to link to that one but got confused by Twitter. As so often happens. Corrected the link.

    If you ever want to feel entirely serious and tedious and humourless: try writing about humour!

    I wrote a bit about @jennschiffer’s posts and Medium as a good place for satire and stuff: gyford.com/phil/writing/2…

    @felix_cohen Talk to @maryloosemore if you want tips, suggestions, etc. It’s her kind of thing. But you might know everything anyway :)

    Ah: explicitly set Startup Disk to the new SSD and login is much faster. You can all stop worrying. Sorry to put you through that. (cc @phl)

    @phl Startup’s odd: takes approx 40 seconds to get to login screen, rather than 15ish before. Much quicker after that though.

    Maybe OS X 10.9.1 calculates disk space differently to 10.9.0. Otherwise, odd how I’ve got 14GB more “Apps” but am using 60GB less space.

    Initial SSD replacement result: startup not much quicker; Photoshop opens in 7 seconds instead of 1-2 minutes; I have 14GB more Apps(?!).
