Slack Tutorials

I help organize an activist group that uses Slack. Many of our members are not particularly tech proficient and struggle to understand how to use it. I'm looking for basic Slack tutorials that will help people get started and don't assume the user already has a fair amount of knowledge or tech savvy. [more inside]

Pdf to word and back again (w/o losing formatting)

I have a big document that needs a bunch of small changes. Right now, it's a pdf that was created from an InDesign document. Instead of sitting down with a typesetter and paying for hours of tiny corrections, can I convert it to a word document, make the changes myself, and reconvert it back to a pdf w/o losing all of the very specific formatting? Is there any way that can happen? If it can happen, is it only possible with the original InDesign document?

Help me stream music legally

So I have an itch I'm trying to scratch. Seeing that there are DJs on Twitch I got to thinking, I'd love to do essentially a radio show on Twitch. Basically it'd be an excuse for me to play my records and talk about them, especially late at night when my insomnia is acting up. Twitch's interactive elements are really nice here, in that the chat would allow for more of a "just hanging out and listening to music with a friend" vibe. [more inside]

iPad Writing App with Doc Management and Versioning

I'm going out of town with iPad + bluetooth keyboard to do some writing (accessing/editing a few dozen docs and creating more). I need a text editing/processing app I can load up with source docs, and which can organize them nicely. Since I won't always have wifi (and it's a non-cellular iPad), I'd prefer some lite local versioning for security (though intelligent doc management is a higher priority). [more inside]

Download all of a user's tweets?

Is there a way to download all of a user's tweets? The user in question has about 13,000 tweets in his account. My googling suggests that only the most recent ~3200 tweets are accessible to the public but that a user can get all his own tweets by this [] method. I suppose I can ask the user to download his own account and send the results to me (it's a semi-famous person).

How long does the Apple Store take to replace a MBP battery?

I have a mid-2015 15" MacBook Pro that I bought new in July 2016. It is displaying a "service battery" message, and resetting the NVRAM did not fix the problem. Fortunately, the computer is still under AppleCare, and I've scheduled an appointment at my local Apple Store tonight. How long does Apple usually take to replace a 2012-2015 Retina MBP battery?
