The reason why I've been trying out Voat is similar to some of the other reasons why others are trying Voat: the harsh changes that are happening to Reddit for the sole purpose of being a site that can more easily be monetized. I joined Voat after /r/fatpeoplehate was banned, along with other subreddits. I do want to go out and say that I don't endorse /r/fatpeoplehate and the like, however.

For those that don't know, It's a new chat platform. The reason why it's important to me, though, is because it offers IRC integration. By expanding the widget and typing something in the box and pressing enter, you are directly inserted into the chat. Before you join you can still see the recent chat history though, because there's a bot that sits in the lounge channel that collects the backlogs.
Your IP is never exposed through the service because clients connecting on your behalf come from Scrollback servers, instead of your PC. So, give it a try if you want! As for the normal live chat page, I'll still use the Kiwi widget. I'll just add some code into the site to hide the Scrollback widget when you're looking at that page.

While I'm busy exploring the wonders if Android L (via CyanogenMod 12 nightly builds) on my OnePlus One, I decided to try the idea of blogging from it. I'm not impressed with Google right now.
Even back when I used Android 2.3, Google has neglected its own Blogger Android app for quite a long time. Back when I tried it, it didn't even have a full editor and had a few bugs. After enjoying the new material design that a lot if apps have now, Blogger for Android sticks out like a sore thumb. It's really disappointing.
I want Google to do something about this. They can do both of the suggestions or just do one. I'd like to have a better mobile app with material design and a full fledged editor, or I want the web post interface to work well on mobile. Either way I want a better editor for mobile.
If you all haven't even noticed yet already, I am making this post from their mobile app. I can't format the text the way I do on the web interface and it shows very well here.

First off, I have been busy lately with the holiday season. I've spent a lot more time with my family this time around than in previous holiday seasons. Therefore, I've given them more attention than keeping up with my computer.
Second, I've been very mobile lately. Because of the lack of time from spending time with family, friends, etc, I also have been very out-and-about lately. I haven't spent much time actually sitting at my desk at all in the past few months. I did get myself a OnePlus One back in November, and I have been using that phone ever since. I still have all of the posts about that phone almost ready to be submitted anyways but they still need to be proofread and edited for any noticeable grammatical errors.
