My role as a modern computer user is to consume media, not to worry about the continued existence of my own data!

I give up; those photos are gone. Almost ten years... 25 or so countries; friends who aren't alive any more; objects and animals and places that don't exist any more. If I'd shot on film I'd still have them. Oh well. Back to binging media and watching ads, as my devices desire.

Oh you're probably right. It's been so long that I forget which examples are in which. 90% sure it's one of those two, though.

also all of the things being recommended are things that I don't do on purpose, not because I don't know that Google Photos exists :/

Turns out there is an old backup of that old phone in iCloud. Three different apps purport to be able to download iCloud backups; all three fail. I do not like this future full of computers we can't control. This is the opposite of what we were supposed to build.

I have found at least a dozen bugs in Apple software since writing this tweet 45 minutes ago. I am not enjoying this.

If these devices were real computers, I'd have backups. But because we gave up all control, it is literally impossible to write an iOS backup program. And my iCloud backups have since turns over (and are for the wrong iOS version besides).

No, because iOS devices aren't real computers so you can't back them up. I didn't manually copy them all somewhere (but I didn't do that with any of the other data on the phone that also can't be backed up en masse).

Just noticed that iOS didn't migrate my photos when upgrading from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 8. I just lost about 95% of the photos that I've taken in my entire life, 2008-2017. (Previous upgrades brought them along just fine.) Thanks, Apple. "It just works."

From my small bit of exposure to them, I have the feeling that most of a bootloader would be putting seemingly-random values in seemingly-random places. A lot of topics have lots of cruft surrounding the interesting bit.

Searching for the next "from scratch" screencast topic and I'm at a loss.

It's been doing that since at least 2011. I once emailed them about it and they sounded surprised. Standard software stuff.

Yep, record audio both via mic and laptop. ScreenFlow draws the audio waveforms, so you can align them visually. Play a few seconds with both audio tracks on and they should sound synced (but kind of weird due to phasing effects). Then mute the laptop's audio and you're good.

It was me but I'm not sure which talk it was. If it was at PyCon, probably "Fast Test, Slow Test".
