So, I may be off Twitter, but I'm not dead...

.. in fact, I've seldom been better - It's all peaceful and quiet here in late-20th century Internet land.

Twitter started attracting the wrong crowd. I got to 28k followers, only to realize that I liked it better with a small handful of followers who'd actually care about what I post/tweet, and not wait for the next JB/mount fix. I initially didn't think to leave, but experimented trying to boot off a mass of followers, but then figured, let's give this a try for a week. Now the week is almost done, and I really don't see any reason to go back.

I'll be re-enabling the RSS feed, which has become woefully outdated since I basically tweeted instead of using it. That's

http://newosxbook.com/rss.jl

and I realize that Safari doesn't have a built-in reader. So I'll create some shell around it later on. But that's where I intend to post updates. And there's a lot in the pipeline, including:

- new APFS tool
- Updates to my Liber* JBs.
- JTool 2
- Joker 2 (with 10,000s of symbols figured out - yes, that's tens of thousands)
- And, of course, when it comes - MOXiI 2 Volume II :-)

Another option I'm mulling is to create an update bot on Twitter, something unattended which won't engage in discussions, but will still tweet every time there's an update. Not sure if that would help anyone.

If anyone needs to get in touch, the usual vectors of forum public, forum private, or email still work.

Glad you're OK :-)

And yes, this would be great!
