Today I received a spam calendar invite on my iCloud account. Had this been at work (on Outlook) I’d have just declined without sending a response. But this is iCloud and it plays by different rules! Surprisingly, it appears that there is no way on iOS or macOS to delete a calendar invitation without informing the originator:
Why there is no way to simply delete an invite without a response is beyond me. It presents a security risk in that by responding you are confirming that your email address is real and in use.
Over the last few weeks the Football Associations of Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland made the decision to allow their players to display poppies during international matches. FIFA have responded by launching disciplinary investigations into each Association.
I’ve been watching the first few episodes of Planet Earth II through iTunes and, as usual, I’m staggered by the scenes the BBC have been able to capture. In episode 2, where the bears are scratching their backs, that had my 13 month old son laughing. They are unparalleled.
To my surprise, the BBC series that got me hooked on natural history is available on iTunes: The Trials of Life. 12 (no where near close to HD) episodes that were originally given to me on VHS as a gift over 25 years ago that still stick with me to this day. They must have been good.
Donald Trump settled the fraud lawsuit related to Trump University for $25 million and then, predictably, implied that the settlement was a good deal for him, not a good deal for the plaintiffs, and that the potential fraud amounted to a much higher sum:
I settled the Trump University lawsuit for a small fraction of the potential award because as President I have to focus on our country.
One of the main reasons I migrated my website from Squarespace to Jekyll almost two years ago was that there was no way to secure my site with SSL. As of late October, Squarespace are (finally) securing all websites using Let’s Encrypt, for free. Franklin Angulo writes:
So, starting today, we’re proud to offer free SSL on all Squarespace websites.
Squarespace is taking care of almost everything, making this an easy transition for customers. To seamlessly manage SSL certificates for all of our websites, we’ve partnered with Let’s Encrypt, a free and open certificate authority (CA) run for the public’s benefit that provides free SSL certificates.
I’m in no rush to return to Squarespace just yet, but if anyone knows of a quick way to convert Jekyll posts into a Squarespace import file, please let me know.
