    1. it is not mold; it is plasticizers coming out of the plastic. I remove it with various means: alcohol, polishing with a very fine polish, Goo Gone™, naptha, and such.

      The white gunky substances seen on the plastic keys of old, unmaintained typewriters generally isn't mold, but plasticizers coming out of the plastic. These can usually be cleaned off using simple household cleaning products or if necessary heavier cleaners (Goo Gone, alcohol, naptha, etc. - test these on hidden parts first to ensure they don't react with or destroy the plastic or remove the paint of the key letters) followed up by light waxes or polishes and buffing.

    1. Speaking of the keys, they had crap all around them. I used a slightly damp towel and Turtle wax rubbing compound. A light rubbing removed the dirt.

      Wiping dirty plastic typewriter keys with a soft cloth and then waxing/buffing them can bring them back to life.

    2. Here it’s outside being cleaned with Mineral Spirits, and carb and choke cleaner. I took one trip to the eye doctor when the carb and choke cleaner bounced and sprayed into both my eyes. I was fine, but wear eye protection.
    3. The feed rollers and platen were also a mess. I cleaned them with Bar Keepers Friend and water. Soft scrub also works.

      Cleans them but probably doesn't repair them.

    1. I accomplished a couple of other things on that first day back into reality. First, with an evil Grinch-like smile | uprooted every household management system | had ever tried, and tore up every single 3x5 card in them. Then one by one, | roasted and toasted them in the fireplace until they were gone, gone, gone. Next, with equally fiendish delight, | speared my $35 namebrand notebook organizer with a marshmallow fork, and | roasted it too. It melted into oblivion, all but it’s ugly metal spine. Next, | prayed for my attitude and for help. And finally, | marched myself into Wal-mart and bought my first clear plastic bin, a two pound sack of M&M's, and a loaf of white bread. For better or worse, we have been pretty happy campers at my house ever since. (p6)

      Cost of items purchased separately on Amazon: - Index cards (total of 6*31+13+12+52=263, so round up to 300 at $0.02 each) = $6.99 - storage box $16.49 - dividers $5.79 - phone sleeve: $2.32 - stainless steel stand: $2.33

      Buying these in bulk for additional profit margin/branding could certainly lower the cost.

      Their retail is $97.79 versus commercially at $33.92. Their actual cost at bulk is probably significantly less and likely closer to $15 all in for the system, so this is a nice little profit.

    1. it is not about the product

      it is not about the product, but about the process—Christopher R. Rogers

      In humanity there is no product. We're collectively about the process.

      Similar to the idea of human "being" not human "doing".

      Sadly corporations have been exerting power over people and turning us into products or inputs in their processes and dramatically devaluing and erasing our humanity.

    1. They also lacked a lot of the features users wanted, e.g. more options for searching games and wishlist notifications.
    2. In recent years, Steam also added the features and options that its users were asking for.
    3. Of course, this decision was not made easy. But it was made easier when I looked at the steadily declining visitor count, probably caused by better offerings from other websites that also compare prices to other stores than only Steam. At some point one starts to ask themselves if this is still all worth the trouble. And sometimes you just have to let go.
    4. SteamPrices.com has always just been a hobby of mine. It was a nice playground to test and improve my programming skills and I wanted to apply all best practices that I learned. We had a complete website relaunch in 2015 where I added a mobile friendly responsive design and accessibility. But as all hobbies go, you have to find the time and motivation to stick with it. Both were lacking in the last three years and the website went into some sort of slumber. Most tasks always were fully automated and worked without me doing something. When Steam changed their website design and code, I came back to the project to fix the apparent issues. Some issues from the early days were never fully solved and probably never would have, i.e. wrong price information during a sale for games that are part of a cheaper bundle or package. Additionally, defending against people that tried to gather price information from SteamPrices.com instead of Steam was always feeling like an uphill battle.
    5. There was a need for websites like SteamPrices.com but this has changed in my opinion. More and more features became obsolete and I countered it with meta-analysis like Price Tracker and Publisher comparison, but the website statistics show that these features were not being used a lot - in the end, they were not in spirit of the initial website idea and goal: compare prices from different Steam regions.

    1. If membership isn’t scarce, the membership loses its signal message. The same applies to physical products: Apple will never offer a cheap iPhone to compete with low-end Android devices – it would destroy the company’s signal message that the iPhone is a luxury product.

      If a high-end brand comes out with a low-end offering, it is diluting the high-end part of their brand message. Apple will never come out with a low-end version of the iPhone because it would dilute the message of being a premium phone.

    2. The app that comes closest to a luxury service that I can think of is Superhuman, which charges its users $30 a month for an email client (which you could also get for free by just using Gmail). But there’s a difference to other software products: Superhuman has signal distribution built in. Every time you send an email via Superhuman, your recipient will notice a little “Sent via Superhuman” in your signature.

      Superhuman is the closest thing Julian can think of to a luxury software product. One reason might be that Superhuman has some signalling built in: It will add a little "sent by superhuman" to your signature.

    3. Another point of evidence is the lack of luxury software products. People spend absurd amounts of money on jewellery, handbags and cars, but I can’t think of a piece of software with an even remotely similar price tag. Sure, people have tried to sell $999 apps but those never took off.

      Julian Lehr posits that because software purchases are less visible, their signalling power is reduced. This is why, for instance, you don't see any luxury software products: Because you cannot signal you're in on it.

    1. For both the tailor-customer and doctor-patient examples, personal data is an input used to improve an output (dress, suit, medical treatment) such that the improvement directly serves the interests of the person whose information is being used.

      This reminds me of "Products are functions" where your personal data is a variable than enters into the function to determine the output.

However, as with many great products, it could not find product-market fit in time.So, while Graphite is no longer a company or a hosted app, it's source code will live on and forever be available to anyone who wants to use it or build off it.Thank you to everyone who supported Graphite over the years.

We recognize that the Support Forum issue tracker has not received much attention in the last few months, and want to redirect our community members to locations that are regularly monitored by GitLab staff. As a result, this issue will be moved to the GitLab product issue tracker and triaged there.
    1. The folks at Netlify created Netlify CMS to fill a gap in the static site generation pipeline. There were some great proprietary headless CMS options, but no real contenders that were open source and extensible—that could turn into a community-built ecosystem like WordPress or Drupal. For that reason, Netlify CMS is made to be community-driven, and has never been locked to the Netlify platform (despite the name).

      Kind of an unfortunate name...

    1. Thank you for letting me know about this move by Google. Definitely something to watch. While I agree with Google's position from an end user experience perspective, it unfortunately puts Firefox at a further disadvantage since Mozilla does not have its own language translation initiatives.

    1. And it gets worse: Microsoft bought Wunderlist in 2015, and plans on eventually shutting it down in favor of Microsoft To-Do, a new-ish app that as of this writing isn’t even available for Mac. That’s a lot of nonsense to deal with, and we haven’t even gotten into the subscription upselling most to-do apps on the market try to pull for what is basically a text document. Which is why I advocate ditching them all and using a text document. Not only is using a text document simple and flexible, but you future proof yourself against that inevitable day when your favorite to-do app gets shut down.

      Reminds me of when [Yahoo?] shut down server for Astrid task manager, telling everyone they needed to migrate their data elsewhere.

      One of the most pivotal service discontinuences I've experienced, making me very hesitant to trust any non-libre/non-open-source software ever again.

Es ist keine Überraschung, dass DFS die größten und besten Unternehmen in der Branche aufgrund ihrer umfassenden Verständnis und Kenntnis der Kundenbasis und Bedürfnisse vertreten kann.

      Darüber hinaus hängt der Erfolg eines Hersteller Vertreters auch vom Erfolg des Herstellers und seiner Produkte ab. Bei der Darstellung eines Produkts oder einer Dienstleistung, müssen Sie intelligent über den Hersteller zuerst wissen und wie gesagt in früheren Post DFS, tun richtige Forschung in der Geschäftstätigkeit als gut.

      Wenn das produzierende Unternehmen in den Vereinigten Staaten befindet, empfehlen wir Ihnen, Ihre benötigten Informationen durch die Better Business Bureau (BBB) Büro der Stadt des Herstellers zu erhalten, aber wenn es außerhalb der Vereinigten Staaten gefunden wird, dann wenden Sie sich an die professionelle Verband der Hersteller war ein Teil von. Sie können Herstellerverbände auf der ganzen Welt über die offizielle Website des internationalen Verbandes der Hersteller zu finden.

      Zweitens, gehen Sie zu Ihrem örtlichen Bezirks Schreiber Büro, um Ihr Unternehmen zu registrieren und erhalten Sie Ihr Geschäft als oder DBA oder angenommen namens Zertifikat. Um Ihr Unternehmen zu integrieren, müssen Sie zu Ihrem Staatskontrolleur Büro gehen. Mit Ihrem DBA-Zertifikat oder Ihrem Gesellschafts Satz können Sie auch ein Geschäftsbankkonto über Ihre lokale Bank eröffnen.

      Drittens, was auch immer das Geschäft ist, wird der Standort ein entscheidendes Element bleiben. Suchen Sie nach dem perfekten Standort bei der Eröffnung Ihres Unternehmens. Bereiten Sie Dokumente vor, die für den Erwerb von Telefon-und Breitbanddiensten erforderlich sind, und gehen Sie zu Ihrer lokalen Telefongesellschaft. Sie können auch Kontakt mit Ihrem lokalen Kabel-Unternehmen und erhalten ähnliche Dienste von Ihnen. Gestalten Sie Ihr Büro nach Ihrem bevorzugten Stil und mieten Sie zuverlässige Mitarbeiter.

      Schließlich, wenn Sie Mitarbeiter haben oder wenn Ihr Unternehmen integriert ist, dann vergessen Sie nicht, ihre Arbeitgeber-Identifikationsnummer (ein) aus dem Internal Revenue Service (IRS) zu erhalten.

      Als Schlussbemerkung möchte DFS Associates Sie daran erinnern, dass, egal welche Karriere Sie drängen in, immer träumen groß, hart arbeiten, konzentriert bleiben und umgeben Sie sich mit guten Menschen, um den Erfolg, den Sie träumen zu erreichen sind.
