Apple earphones have always been crap. I’ve tried most types from the first iPod upwards. So I have been very surprised by how good the air pods pro actually are. The actually feel like a quality product. Surprisingly worth the cash.

Migrating my blog from Jekyll to Eleventy is going well. I finally have all the #indieweb functionality working. In to the home stretch now. I will have to make tweaks to my Indieweb server to accommodate the new build but otherwise happy!

After fixing over 200 typos in old posts related to date formatting I finally got my #eleventy site to build last night. Next up is integrating my existing #IndieWeb functionality.

To move URLs or not. While porting code to #11ty there is an opportunity to clean up my URLS, but this would break backwards compatibility and previous webmentions without doing a ton of redirects and life is too short.

It started with me considering what to share about my 2019 year in review and how much personal info to share. It is now a full blown existential crisis if I want to continue on the #indieweb path.

Spent more time researching the big redesign today. There are definitely speed bumps and leaning to overcome but it seems plausible from a practical point of view. Happy!

It might be better to build a list of tech tasks that will not change during the redesign and research those in parallel while doing the redesign on Jekyll in the meantime.
