Please, @evernote could you drop all the "work chat" popups? I don't know or care this time or the last 50 times I've had to dismiss them.—@ndw
@ndw You shouldn't receive them that many times. Are you clicking through them? What's your OS and Evernote version?—@evernotehelps
@evernotehelps It happens on the web version and the windows (8.1, (274870) Public) version with annoying frequency.—@ndw
@ndw Are you on the beta web client? Does this happen on every browser?—@evernotehelps
@evernotehelps Yes, and the beta web client asks me about trying it *every single time I start it*. I'm mostly using Chrome on Linux.—@ndw
@ndw Does this happen on the older version of the web client as well?—@evernotehelps
@ndw Revert back via Settings > Account Summary > Select “Go back to old version” in the Beta section to check.—@evernotehelps

Loved @XMLPrague? Looking forward to @XMLLondon? Wondering about @XMLAmsterdam? You must come to @Balisage! Papers due 17 April! C'mon!—@ndw
@ndw @xmlprague @xmllondon @XMLAmsterdam @Balisage Dayum. That is expensive. I'm pissing blood at the thought of it. I'll stick with London—@DinoFancellu
@DinoFancellu @ndw @xmlprague calling #xmlprague expansive is the best April fool of 2015—@jirkakosek
@jirkakosek @ndw @xmlprague I was talking about Balisage. Reread the original tweet.—@DinoFancellu

@mdubinko Make sure you have printed, safely stored backup codes. Lost my phone in January and 2FA recovery wasn't too painful.—@ndw

XML Stars, the journal is out! Stories via @JamieXML @ndw —@dominixml

The ongoing use of "religion" to shield otherwise unacceptable behavior is a direct result of faith being socially insulated from critique.—@ZJemptv
