Just want to note that I was seriously infected with a free game called Hay-Day. I wrote up my hints, tips and tricks for beginner in a small, ugly-themed Tumblr. Have fun with that, but don’t expect more – I quit, as it wasn’t free but cost a lot of time :-)
The metadata, that sits in every tweet contains no locale definition. If it did, Twitter clients (including Twitters website) could filter tweets by language, and hide me from Chinese, Spanish and other very nice languages … that I nevertheless don’t understand.
Update: As George Hahn points out in the comments, Twitter basically supports tweet languages. This means apps like Tweetbot or Osfoora could give options like “don’t show Tweets that are tagged as Chinese or Japanese”. /Update
Putting in the language would then of course be an additional hassle for multiple language tweeters, but effectively it would do no more harm that what is done right now to the unprotected eyes of usual people who want to try twitter but might be scared away if they get all the english retweets – while they don’t speak english. Then also applications can try to auto recognize if I tweet in german or english (which might not even be that hard) and correct me if I didn’t put in the language manually.
When space-travel becomes a commercial endeavor, scientific breakthroughs in this area will accelerate. Remember: The Vulcans might be watching us.
Neither conformity nor unconformity are hard. The only two hard things are to put the call which is suitable in a situation and to not have a default for every situation.
So I made the mistake of connecting Skype to Facebook, and soon realized that when somebody wrote me a Facebook message, Meebo made my iPhone ping, Meebo connector on my PC popped up, and my Skype blinked. In Skype, I tried to disconnect from Facebook, but there was only an option to connect to Facebook.
So, to disconnect Skype from Facebook:
- go to Skype
- –> Home (or press the Home-icon)
- –> Connect to Facebook if the option to disconnect isn’t there
- –> Disconnect from Facebook
Now the Facebook messages are gone.
