Pieces finally falling into place so I can finally build a micropub posting workflow that fits my eye too
Hoping we get enough wind and rain to make it a day to binge watch some Succession and finish my Jekyll move.
I’ve been experimenting with smoked paprika as a base background flavor in some of my vegetarian cooking. Today’s experiment will be cold smoking sweet onion before dehydrating for onion powder.
I was just told conflict can not be resolved through written communication. I’m going to need to lie down.
Apple Books doesn’t lend itself to being able to copy
<code> blocks. The Rails 6 book has a huge block of code that is meant to be pasted at the command line (create the inital database structure). Friction like this is an easy source of anxiety for me. It sucks.
Until I figure out what my next move is, I’m always looking for some side hustle. If you need work done on your website, I won’t steer you wrong. I love untangling messes and modernizing.
I am totally in love with live previews in PRs with @netlify
Reminder, if you use iTerm2, there’s a serious security update.
Nice to see @Paul_Kinlan add Webmentions to his static site. With a nice post on how he does it with Hugo. https://paul.kinlan.me/using-web-mentions-in-a-static-sitehugo-/
i won neighbor bingo today by having post hole diggers.
Did one of those things where someone asks a dev question and I do the old “oh you just…” before looking closer at the code. Having fun now figuing it out as it relates to stuff I want to do with my jekyll theme https://github.com/miklb/jekyll-indieweb
I can’t find an online version but the @splcenter email newsletter this morning is an important read about the cycle of “user-funded justice systems” particularly from a study in Alabama https://www.splcenter.org/20190815/opportunity-costs-unequal-justice-alabamas-community-corrections-programs
Listening to #Rays day playoff game on radio like it should be. Picked a particular task I’ve been putting off to tackle.
Catching up on feeds tonight and super happy to see One Thing Well is back publishing, like this CLI tool to view markdown files https://onethingwell.org/post/188040173872/mdcat
Related, see @ttscoff’s recent update to mdless https://brettterpstra.com/2019/09/13/mdless-1-dot-0/
Anyone have recommendations for a solid place to start to actually learn Ruby/Rails? I’ve dug through code and hacked in some stuff, but I’ve never really written/built anything or learned best practices. Not big on video tutorials.
Somehow managed to figure out how to push a Ruby Gem to the new GitHub registry while in a cold medicine fog. Should be interesting when it comes time to publish a new release and I have no recollection of how I did it.
The idea was simple–an iOS Shortcut that I could call from a sharesheet on an OF task that starts a timer in Timing App. I do a lot of work offline and wanted to start measuring the time I spend. With a lot of help from @TimingApp and @Omnifocus here’s the result https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/15ff333af6cb441d9f9566dcf6f71670
Note you will need to add your own Timing API Key https://web.timingapp.com/docs/#introduction
The next step is a Shortcut that stops the timer and marks the task complete.
I was today year’s old when I learned that macOS Font Book has smart collections.
physical tool organizing is next level yak shaving.
I feel very lucky to have lived, no matter how far off on the periphery, in Daniel Johnston’s world. Rest easy.
If you were going to build something that required really fast faceted search TODAY, what would you use? Elasticsearch?
Just issued a challenge to myself. It’s on like donkey kong as the saying goes.
I reached the point that I forgot I had used
git stash and thought I’d lost my mind. I need something that the command line prompt that shows number of stashes or something.
2 things I learned in kitchens that I think applies to the dev world. Will always be someone who knows more & someone who is faster. Rarely the same person. There’s usually a reason something is done a certain way even if everyone knows it’s not the optimal solution.
I’m just imagining someone saying, “nah, leave it.”
Million things on my mind but seeing Beastie Boys pass through my timeline and all I can think of is one of my mentors yelling “NEEDS MORE SALT” over the boom box blasting Paul’s Boutique. New Orleans guy meets Tampa kid in Denver. Hilarity ensues.
when using dnsmasq with Homebrew, remember to check
/private/etc for stray resolver config files. #notetoself
after years of blindly only using Sheilashine to clean/polish stainless in professional kitchens, TIL a little mineral oil on a clean soft rag works just as well. And no I’m sure they took time off my life fumes.
