• Well, that’s disappointing but unsurprising. Apple’s Notes app won’t work with Fastmail any more, only iCloud. Not that it matters, would just be another inbox I’d forget to check.

  • Since I turned off comments and stripped out all the IndieWeb plugins plus Akismet, my WordPress site feels a lot faster! As a result, the temptation to look into static site generators has receded once again.

  • Ugh, I’d forgotten how much of a pain it is to bulk-edit WordPress posts, having to do them in batches of 100 so I don’t get a timeout.

  • (Mix for NTS Radio) Getting Warmer Episode 57: Harp Special - this afternoon’s listening, sharing for @hollyhoneychurch 🎢

  • The coming lifting of all remaining pandemic restrictions across England has sent my anxiety rocketing again. I need to remind myself that I’ll probably be alright. But I fear things are going to get bad here nonetheless…

  • I’m down to under 130 RSS feeds now. Turns out there were a lot of blogs that I don’t actually want to read.

  • RSS feed culling in progress. If I’m having to do a lot of filtering with Inoreader to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, it’s getting removed. I’ve removed at least 70 feeds so far over last few days, aiming to get back under 150 again.

  • Owww, still feeling the strain in my leg and shoulder muscles from yesterday’s fruit-picking in the garden. 😩

  • Jam making today. Four jars of gooseberry & wild strawberry jam, plus one jar of gooseberry compote (to clean out the cauldron.) Plus obligatory spoon licking afterwards, obvs. πŸ˜‹

  • Looking through old photos I’ve taken with my old (2007) Canon Powershot G9, and still impressed with how good they are, and how much detail I can squeeze out of them with light editing. And it’s still working. Time to take it out of mothballs and use it some more.

  • My blogging has slowed down lately, mainly because I’m not finding anything in the news that moves me to comment. Perhaps it’s time to step back and write more personal pieces.

  • Mixmaster Morris - The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - 63 minute mix of just about every version of the song ever recorded. Not many songs make me emotional, but this is definitely one. β€οΈπŸŽ™πŸ’—πŸŽΌπŸ˜πŸ₯²

  • I don’t make use of the synching features of Vivaldi on the Mac, but the default persona icon was sat on the toolbar, so I decided to customise it. :) Makes me chuckle.

  • Considering giving the new Firefox a try, but at this point it’ll take a lot to make me switch from Vivaldi.

  • I just got an email offering me the opportunity to buy NFTs of original hand-drawn artwork from a game I supported on Kickstarter years ago, from someone claiming they have the rights to said artwork.

    I binned it, after unsubscribing from their mailing list.

  • Just a heads-up to WordPress users who’ve added IndieWeb to their sites - the IndieAuth plugin was updated recently, and has started giving an authorisation failure warning in Site Health Check. There’s a couple of open issues raised already on GitHub.

  • Slept better last night, where better means I woke up once and was able to get back to sleep again. But I feel like im getting less deep sleep despite overall sleeping for longer these days.

  • Had my first full-on nightmare in quite a while last night β€” people entering our house and attacking myself and my mother with knives. 😱😰😬😳 Did not need that! Eventually got back to sleep, ended up oversleeping, feel like crud. πŸ’©

  • I made my desktop browser pink, because reasons. :D

  • I just switched back to Overcast for my podcasts, after becoming more and more annoyed at Apple’s own app. I’ll post a full blog post soon about those annoyances.

  • It’s Ibuprofen O’Clock. πŸ’ŠπŸš°

  • Dev surprised his perfect vim/tmux/bash/xmonad setup doesn’t alleviate existential crisis

    Substitute Emacs for Vim, and that sounds an awful lot like our @jack

  • I’ve been having fun playing Townscaper, building little (and not-so-little) buildings on water. πŸ—πŸ πŸŒŠπŸ¦

  • This week has been the first time in years that I’ve felt mentally and physically ‘okay’. No niggling health issues, no black clouds in my mind. That’s something to celebrate. :) But now I need to put the work in to stop myself sliding backwards.
