this post from @SaraJChipps struck a nerve and we should all think how our “contructive” crtitism can quickly become a pile on fast https://stackoverflow.blog/2019/07/18/building-community-inclusivity-stack-overflow/
My sources of news:
Tampa Bay Times – delivered to my home
online articles from journalists I follow on Twitter
CSPAN – straight from the horses mouth
online articles shared by people I follow
BBC World News
I really enjoy debugging stuff. Guess it comes from creating so many.
none too pleased with the experience of flipping berween my WordPress site saved to home screen & other iOS apps. Now I have to figure out if its on my end, iOS or WP.
I’d Google the Godfather line about getting out & sucked back in but I’d loose everything I have typed.
guess who gets to go to the Apple Store to find a power supply for 2012 11″ Air tomorrow? Lightning got more than I thought.
I forget how bad my T-Mobile reception at home is until I’m also without WiFi
At least I have a fully functioning web server on my laptop to work.
Tool was on the jukebox at Ybor Pool & Pub (not to be confused with Ybor Pizza & Subs). We would have Sunday night cookouts (often fish someone had caught along with scotch bonnet peppers from Mark’s garden) on the sidewalk blasting the album at full volume. Salad days.
Setting up dressing rooms for bands playing at the fairgrounds. Grace Slick was super nice to me.
I should probably use this time without home wifi to see exactly how much i can do on my phone development wise.
just remembered when I was elevated to admin in the wp.org forums i changed the display to Concierge as I didnt like “admin”
I love that Bandsintown thinks I live in Thonotosassa
one cool discovery in my kitchen remodel is my sink is a 1959 @Kohler that must have been installed at same time my ’59 GE Hotpoint was. 31 years after house was built.
Taking a break from remodeling so I can sit in on a seminar for disaster response mapping & then discuss with a local non-profit that works with housing insecure folks to get them on a bike how @codefortampabay can help them in their mission.
i just cut a 25″ deep $300 piece of wood with a circular saw. Not sure I’ve ever been more scared. And I’ve been held up at gun point twice.
literal shower thought–instead of blue collar & white collar it really could be broken down to shower before work or shower after work.
Did some MacGyver plumbing today that could be best described as hacking legacy code for a new feature with a big code comment that say
Saw this post from @ideasinfood – a toasted PB&J. When I was little I didn’t like grilled cheese so when I was sick my mom would make me grilled PB&J. I still make them as a late night snack to satisfy my sweet tooth. https://blog.ideasinfood.com/ideas_in_food/2019/07/chasing-childhood.html
all it would take is a dozen Republican senators to grow a spine. That’s it.
a teen dance group practices at the park near my house & their music alternates between a marching band & hip-hop. its awesome.
Of course Apex Manor is a @mergerecords band.
shit is dope as the kids used to say.
imagine the weather reporter saying “its going to be windy & rainy” and leaving out the part about a hurricane.
Thats what political reporters are doing now with Republicans.
folks, if you have important work in a remote git repo, why do you not have a local mirror always up-to-date? GitHub banning IP addesses sucks, but backups are backups.
submitted my first iOS 13 bug. The new long press behavior to rearrange app icons is missing on sites saved to home screen through Safari.
A reminder to folks creating stuff for the web with the hopes that others might use your tool – stable is good. Stable code is your friend. Don’t let yourself get caught pushing for fringe use cases that undermines your stable code.
The world is completely off its axis so here’s a reminder that Patrick Stewart ran into battle in Dune carrying a pug.
Congratulations folks. Your incessant bitching about the Twitter UI has been the just the catalyst I needed to get off the damn platform for awhile. There just aren’t enough mute filters (this is coming from my own site, I’ll still syndicate)
Sure I have more important things to do, but finding a serif font that pairs with Gill Sans is kinda important.
✔️ doctor visited
✔️ blood drawn
✔️ resumes submitted
✔️ software tested
✔️ GitHub issues followed up on
✔️ what’s next?
I had this whole big wind up about seeing Run Westy Run with fIREHOSE in New Orleans. Then, later about a road trip driving from Chicago to Minnesota and a quiet Monday night open mic, followed by this cheesy line about taking all your feels of midwestern americana shake over ice and pour over the rocks. But really, if you agree with Mermaid Ave being in top 12 and you haven’t given this a listen, you owe it yourself. Sure, Mermaid has Billy Bragg & Natalie Merchant (and Woodie Guthrie lyrics) but the general vibe is the same, especially on the Wilco tracks.
But at its core this is a bunch of musicians and songwriters who appear to enjoy playing music together for themselves. Which is why 20 years later when I am feeling that midwestern vibe I more often than not reach for this first.
Oh, and it really does at times feel like a love letter to Big Star, which if you’ve ever heard Wilco cover “Thirteen”, you know what I mean.
Vote Golden Smog.

I know everyone is into JAMStack these days, but I’m really looking forward to @jekyllrb 4.
