The new iCloud-synced account list in the login screen also means that all accounts — even anonymous, for the first time — can log into the website using iCloud:

Sorry about this. It’s a bug that was introduced in 13.1 beta 2, and never got fixed before Apple shipped 13.1 to all customers.
I’m still trying to find a workaround. https://twitter.com/realdlnorman/status/1178511627471089664
Overcast now supports ad purchasing for Apple Podcasts’ new top-level categories added this summer: Fiction, History, and True Crime.
(I’d been waiting to support them until a lot of podcasts had self-identified into them. Otherwise, ads would be matched against too little.) https://twitter.com/IanMikutel/status/1174180275032666116
Yes, sorry about that. Still investigating, but it appears to be an issue at my host, @linode. Fortunately, this means it’s out of my hands () and should fix itself soon. https://twitter.com/chrismanbrown/status/1169639546935336960
Stars still determine what shows up in the Most Recommended section and the directory categories (“Technology”, “Business”, etc.).
For the 90% of users who never connected a Twitter account, it was always this way.
Still a good idea to encourage listeners to star in Overcast! https://twitter.com/dbuntinx/status/1153335806351876096
Today’s update brings longer clips, better discovery, and more: https://marco.org/2019/07/21/overcast-summer-update
No. But I’ll tell you one of the boring things!
I finally have the database columns needed to allow separate download and sorting preferences for each podcast. https://twitter.com/timstringer/status/1143687794843275265
Not my first rodeo.
This was a master-database changeover, my biggest and most stressful server change.
I tested and cherry-picked the fastest, most stable @linode instances over the last month, moved the replication slaves last week, and finally moved the master tonight. https://twitter.com/cpragman/status/1143682980503642112
This Mastodon instance is dedicated to mirroring the social media accounts of interesting/useful people and organizations from elsewhere on the Internet. At least until such time as they create their own accounts on the Mastodon network.
If you control an account that is being mirrored here and would like to make changes to how that's done (or not done), please contact Dave Wood via @email@example.com.
