OSX & iOS journaling -- privacy edition

I currently use Day One Classic for journaling. I like it, except for the fact that my stuff is stored on a remote drive I don't have control over. What sorts of secure remote-sync/cloud journaling apps are available, and what is the setup like?

What's the simplest 360 streaming setup that allows an audio input?

I'd like to set up a 360 streaming system from my recording studio. We'd likely be using Periscope or Facebook Live. Ideally, we'd have a camera in the middle of the room providing video, and an analog audio feed from our mixing board providing the audio. What's the simplest setup (especially on the software side) that could achieve this? What's the closest we can get to an engineer just having to log in to Periscope or Facebook and press "go"?

Seeking URL: LotR, child mortality, and post-apoc fiction

The article began with a quote from LotR movies: "A parent should never have to bury their own child." It pointed out that this wasn't in the books because, at time of writing, this was almost a nonsense statement: you could agree it was tragic, but it happened to everyone. It then went into child mortality rates and how those would shape the structure of society in a post-apoc world, especially one with fantastic elements like magical healing or superpowers.

Off leash hiking for dogs in northern New Jersey

I'd love some suggestions for places where I can (legally) let my dog hike off leash in NJ. Northern NJ preferred, but if you've got a great spot in the region (NJ, NY, PA), would love those suggestions as well. Not really looking for any dog park recs unless they are spaces that are 5 acres+ in size for dogs of all sizes. I have a local dog park that is an acre, so would really prefer to hear about hiking areas. Thanks!

Is there a healthcare expense app for Mac?

I'm looking for a program that will keep track of medical expenses, deductibles (and other insurance details), FSA claims, payments, etc. This seems like something many people would want, but I am not able to find anything. A couple of online platforms seem to have been overtaken by service providers who cater to the billing systems of medical providers (CakeHealth and Simplee) and others like Quicken's healthcare software are no longer supported. Am I doomed to building my own spreadsheet?

Custom poker games for iOS?

Years ago I loved playing iPoker on my Mac, mainly because it didn't limit you to Hold ’Em poker and let you make up your own poker variants, which is a ton of fun if you’ve never tried it. Alas, as you can tell from reading the link, that software is long dead, and almost all of my gaming is done on iOS these days anyway… [more inside]

Sites like The Quietus, but for visual art and poetry

Thanks to this recent post on the Blue about Ryuichi Sakamoto, I have just become aware of The Quietus, which is opening my ears to a lot of great new music. Can you recommend sites with a similar sensibility that are focused on poetry or the visual arts rather than music? Sites in English, French, German or Spanish all welcome.

Why can't I access all episodes in my TuneIn app?

I use Android. I paid for a premium version of TuneIn, the podcast app. Now I'm trying to access the first season of Coffee Break French and can't access anything but the most recent episodes. Is there a way to access *all* episodes? BeyondPod, which is free, does this with no problem, so I know that these episodes do exist. Is there something I'm missing in TuneIn?

Looking for a series of performances?

Sometime between 2009 and 2014 there was a series of performances by emerging artists including Grimes, Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men. It was shot in what looked like an abandoned factory and was shown on MTV and VH1. Occasionally it was titled "ahead of the curve" sessions and sometimes it had a different name. over time mistakes in the performances were edited to be more "correct." I'd love to be able to purchase a collection of all the performances, but all of my searches have come up nothing. Help?

Minecraft PE worlds on a Kindle are corrupted and don't load

A Minecraft world on a Kindle (6th gen Fire HD) has glitched - this particular world has reverted to an uninhabited world, and all buildings etc. have disappeared. Sometimes when I quit and restart parts of them reappear, but they then disappear again ... Is there any way to recover this world? And how might I avoid this in the future? Thank you! [more inside]

Film ID: Orca (killer whales) documentary

I watched a documentary last year online about a pod of orcas residing off the shores of Argentina and their hunting and social habits. There was a specific scene where the calf of the pod wanders into a kelp forest and when it discovers it is separated from the rest of the pod, it remembers to stay still and call out for help. The rest of the pod then respond to the calls. What is the name of this documentary? I've been searching for too long but none of the videos that pop up have this scene.

Charity auctions near Boston

I have been volunteered to be the auctioneer at a charity event. The auction part of the event is low-key enough that I think it will be ok that I am not a professional. But I also think it might be a good idea to scope out some other charity fundraisers and auctions to get some tips. [more inside]
