😂 Just realized that I've already started migrating my site live.

Guess I'll have to get the new version ported over.

I wonder how compact I could make that. If I could fit everything I'd need into a small suitcase or makeup case, I could probably carve out enough storage space to keep it around.

If I had space for a workshop, one thing I'd definitely do with it is set up a small bookbinding operation so that I could convert some of my older paperbacks to hardback.

Discovering accounts to follow is still an unsolved problem on Mastodon, as far as I'm concerned. The about page on recent releases gives visitors the option to see a list of local users that's often just the admin and a moderator or two, or a timeline that includes followed accounts from other instances which tends to reflect what you'd see on a hundred other popular servers and mostly just crowds out the local discussion.

Readability of code is a virtue, but it's a virtue who's value is distorted by capitalists hoping to make every engineer replacable with as little formal training as possible.

Anyone have any favorite online resources about html heading tags or semantic elements? I'm trying to figure out the best way to use them on my redesign.

I don't know whether that's a good idea from a processing perspective, but it would definitely make it easier to change things down the line without creating inconsistencies across the site.

It's dawning on me that I don't have to create separate templates for each of the page types on my site. I can just have a single index template that imports different elements depending on the fields in the yaml headers.

@matilde Thanks for recommending Petzold's CODE, btw. I'm really enjoying it.

Okay, most everything is working more or less properly again. Just another reminder that I need to finish converting my site to its new engine.

Oops, CWs don't support hashtags. Been wasting my time on that.

Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.

The Movie Database is a free community-run alternative to IMDB, unlike amazon's shitty website, TMDB isn't full to bursting with ads, trackers and sluggish JavaScript, and provides an excellent platform for folk to catalogue information about their favorite films without being marketed to.

Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.

if you like @darius's it should be noted that many of those concepts are in the pipeline for Pleroma 2.

Pretty odd coincidence, Twitter having a big outage on the same day Trump holds a "social media summit" with a bunch of right wing accounts, but no actual social media platforms, at the White House.
