Hope so! May not be much better than laptop mic, though. It's a smaller group, so that might work OK.

Busy busy busy. Hoping to resume the Indieweb work I was doing. Fixed one thing, broke another
#
[colinwalker]
Ain't that always the way.
#
GWG
I did fix the reported problem with classification though
#
[colinwalker]
That's good to hear, I'll have to test it out once you've fixed the other issue. I did briefly stick your fork on my site but then saw your comment about breaking validation so rolled back.
#
GWG
I intend to test as many scenarios as possible.
#
GWG
But hopefully soon it will be stable.
#
GWG
And then I can build on the improvements.
#
[colinwalker]
Let me know and I'll test.
#
GWG
I hope to soon, just busy with other things.

On that note, heading off to rest

Huh, well this is weird. Twitter.com isn't showing me an @-reply I got from someone 11 hours ago, but since I got a webmention I noticed and found the tweet permalink.

They don't have an avatar, so maybe Twitter is filtering?

Hmm, it's not selected. I do have "Quality Filter" on though
