new blog post, new graph legend, google+, pointless SOS clause

Beeminder items!

  1. Latest blog post is about how to beemind things you only do in
    sporadic chunks of time (perhaps belying our description of the yellow
    brick road as “forcing inexorable daily progress”).

  2. Check out the pretty new graph legends.

  3. A new way to love us: https://plus.google.com/118275811754025086770

  4. Remember all that effort we put in to the SOS clause that none of
    you gave two craps about? Well you were totally right and we should’ve
    paid attention to your lack of attention. No one cares about the SOS
    clause and I now suspect it’s actively harmful. It seems so reassuring
    in principle, but in reality it’s just too much to think about and
    makes the whole thing seem scary. If you read the whole SOS stuff
    word-for-word you’ll see how nice we’re being but if you just see that
    it’s there without reading it (which is 90% of people) then it just
    makes you nervous and feel like you better understand all this better
    before diving in.

Hi Daniel - great Beeminder as ever! As your iPad Guineapig can I just say that hovering over the legend doesn’t work with your iPad finger mouse equivalent . Just I’d let you know. Oh and I accidentally entered the same day a twice and wondered if I go to data rather than graph and hit edit the “destroy” command pops up in red ( very scary) I trust that this means destroy just that piece of data not the whole lot/all of Beeminder ( oh no -sob) or indeed the entire planet… So I didn’t hit it and have to be cool about having a very messy set of data [ I am so old school I really disapprove of graphs not drawn with a sharp pencil and beautiful ruler on high quality graph paper… Perfectionist? Moi?]
