      I like my data to stay on my computer. I used to use mGSD, but I replaced it with CueKeeper a few years ago and I’ve been using that ever since. In both cases, you download an HTML file locally and then open it in your browser. mGSD stored the data by modifying the HTML file, which modern browsers don’t like. CueKeeper keeps the items in the browser’s IndexedDB storage.

        Any way to synchronize CueKeeper’s data between a laptop and a phone?

        1. 2

          There are some instructions on how to set up a sync server at https://github.com/talex5/cuekeeper/#running-a-server. However, that’s still experimental. In particular, the UI is not well tested on phones. It would probably need some changes to make it usable.

          Before marking the server as finished, I’d first like to switch the data storage to be pure Git-format. Then you could even sync via e.g. GitHub. At the moment, it’s using an obsolete pre-1.0 Irmin format. I’m hoping to have time to look at it before the end of the year and write some migration scripts, so we can upgrade to the latest Irmin without people losing their history.

        Finished Talleyrand by Duff Cooper, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Now back to Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel. Also still reading Designing Data Intensive Applications

        1. 2

          If you haven’t read it already, I can recommend Mantel’s A Place of Greater Safety.

          1. 2

            Thanks! It’s on my list, I am going through a bit of a French Revolution phase, right now :)

        1. 2

          I’ve just finished Elena Ferrante’s Napolitean novels (My Brilliant Friend, etc…). It’s a rollicking 1200 pages about a lifelong friendship between two women who’ve grown up in the same neighborhood. There is a lot of characters who reappear along the 4 books. You also learn about Naples, poverty and domestic violence, political strife in 70’s Italy, feminism, etc…

              Ooh, that McPhee book looks interesting…

              1. 5

                It’s a very good general history. He tries (maybe successfully) to rehabilitate Robespierre.

                1. 4

                  Nice. I’ve read and enjoyed The Terror by Andress, and Mantel’s A Place of Greater Safety which although a novel does a good job capturing the tone of the period. Mantel also treats Robespierre somewhat sympathetically.

                  1. 3

                    Thanks - I will check those out.

                    He did a good job doing this in his: https://www.amazon.com/Robespierre-Macphee-Peter/dp/9873919007 which I enjoyed reading… Fun fact: there are no memorials or monuments to him in France

                When you give up on ATS, BTS is a good next step.

                1. 3

                  In the same goal space, F* is also an interesting up and coming.

                  1. 3

                    Any pointer to BTS ? I cannot find anything

                    1. 2

                      Yeah, even I couldn’t find anything about it.

                      1. 2

                        I’m sorry, I regret what I’ve done. :(
