It's live!

HTML and CSS simple tips and tricks for your website. :cooldog:

The goal is to help you with easy tricks to make the HTML of your website accessible, readable by everyone and optimized for low bandwidth. I cover a LOT of things in these 20+ pages of text and I still need to add one or two more.

I'll share some parts in the next days, thanks for everyone who took time to proofread this huge beast. :tealheart:

I started exploring eleventy (11ty.dev/) to replace the HTML generation part of my site. It's more of a tool to consume data than a JS framework, and I've seen a lot of people I respect in the field use it so it's encouraging.

Too bad it uses npm tho.

Maybe I'm gonna deport the time tracking thing into the page entries instead. I'm still interested to know how long I spend on some projects, but I don't need to have a timeline right now. Maybe one day if I become a freelancer I will need it, but for now my life is way more balanced.

I've only tracked my time for half of this year for now, and honestly I think I won't be doing it anymore. Now that I've started a new job my time is kinda regulated and personal projects are rare. I'm gonna think again about this and how to make my website evolve.

I’m so sick of everything, it feels like I was born to witness the world burn, and nothing I do will change this. All I can do is watch or try to look away.

87 fascists were elected to the French parliament today, after the center right majority of Macron refused to encourage their people to vote for the left when confronted to far right candidates, just to be sure they could have a right leaning parliament. The two thirds of the parliament for the next 5 years are pure capitalists, don’t care about climate change, are authoritarian xenophobics, against social welfare. My country will be even more destroyed than before. 60% of people did not vote.

Received and installed my standing sit-and-standing desk. I feel super illegitimate about buying this, like I'm generating waste, even if I know very well that many of the digestive pain I feel is actually related to sitting all day and that it will be a great thing to alternate between positions.

New page on my website, with all my practical knowledge about... spinal disc herniation. Not the most fun of topics for sure, but I hope it can eventually help people who suffer from it. thomasorus.com/spinal-disc-her

Another day, another person I know that suddenly has spinal disc herniation and almost no idea about how to deal with it.

Might write something about everything I learned about this while carrying my partner in the last 10 years.

So apparently a new generation of kids is discovering Kate Bush through the last Stranger Things season, which mean they'll soon morph into goths good good... :level2:

This week drawing lesson was a bit frustrating. I feel I'm at a place now where I don't want to only draw naked people in pretty poses, but normal people in boring ones, with clothes, and in settings that can require thinking at the composition outside of "make the whole body fit in the sheet of paper".

I could probably continue and focus on the mediums I want to develop (pencil, ink) but at this point I feel it's too narrow. Might stop this next year and try to find something else. 🤔

I've been wanting to take a more practical approach to drawing after almost a year of taking live model lessons. I'm starting a set of notes on the subject, with each note being a thing I need to work on. When I'll feel confident on those topics, I'll create new notes to have new things to work on. thomasorus.com/drawing-notes.h

Why the hell is imagemagick slower on my new multi-thousand euros macbook pro than on the 2015 salvaged computer running linux I used before. 👺

I'm gonna impro a stream around 10pm, in 40 minutes. Gonna start again thinking about the themes for the Merveilles forum. :merveilles: twitch.tv/thomasorus
