How S Note + Samsung account works

Sun, 12/03/2017 - 08:46
  1. Get Galaxy Note device 
  2. Create your documents in S Note
  3. Place your trust in it
  4. Create a Samsung Account
  5. Log in to Samsung account on device
  6. Sync S Notes to Samsung account
  7. NEVER, ever remove Samsung account from phone and delete it online immediately afterwards. It will delete irrevocably all your S NOTE files on your device
  8. Let’s just repeat that. Your data, that you created on your device, which you choose to  then sync with Samsung, will be deleted.
  9. Accept that Samsung now pwns your data.
  10. Never make that mistake again.

    No, seriously. The Nokia 3310 is coming back

    Everyone will be happy so long as Snake really is part of this.

    In fact, it’ll be worth buying really just for that.

    20 mins to spare. Decluttering my blog :)

    Tue, 14/02/2017 - 12:24

    I am ahead of schedule!  With a little spare time I wasn’t anticipating, I am decluttering my blog.

    I have found a number of posts that have been orphaned (having no category set) plus a whole load of drafts that should have been published and – for some reason – never were.

    Commence Operation: Rapid Cleanse!

    PuppetModule.info: documenting Puppet Forge modules

    Mon, 30/01/2017 - 15:14

    Recently I launched PuppetModule.info, a new site that publishes documentation for every module on Puppet Forge and GitHub - aka "Puppet Strings as a Service".

    This comes after the release of Puppet Strings 1.0.0 which is the latest generation tool to parse Puppet manifests and extract docs in either HTML or JSON formats. It can handle docs at the top of classes, READMEs, parameter lists and descriptions, parameter typing and even types/providers, and replaces the old puppet doc tool.

    The site is a fork of the well-known RubyDoc.info as it uses the same YARD engine to build and documentation, updating it to use Puppet Strings and handle downloads of modules from Puppet Forge. It can display modules from the Forge at:

    All of the known modules can be seen on the Puppet Modules index page, which is refreshed hourly from the Forge:

    And module docs can also be loaded directly from GitHub checkouts from the GitHub repository listing.

    So please start adding links to your modules so users can quickly skip to your published documentation: [![puppetmodule.info docs](http://www.puppetmodule.info/images/badge.png)](http://www.puppetmodule.info/m/AUTHOR-MODULE)

    If you find issues, please report them or send PRs to the puppetmodule.info repository, but otherwise, I hope you find the documentation easily accessible and useful!

    Indieweb: wish I could do more for you.

    Wed, 07/12/2016 - 16:14

    Despite previous posts advocating the indieweb, sadly I need to trim down my WordPress plugin experience.  This is mainly to seeing a lot more traffic on my site recently, and not having the time or resources to optimise the plugin code running on my virtual server.  I found that the number of plugins in my site (around 48) was really starting to hamper performance.

    So it’s with regret that I step out of the indieweb sharing platform, by removing all associated plugins from my WordPress.  Despite being in full agreement with the indieweb mantra, of owning one’s own data, I do find some satisfaction and convenience of using WordPress.com‘s own tools to do the same job now.  To some extent, they have embraced providing a richer, more social experience through WordPress sites – whether hosted by them, or by “us”.

    My only regret is that I couldn’t contribute to the project, the principles of which I wholly believe in and support – if only on an intellectual level.

    Good luck Indieweb!
