Todays millionaire startup idea: An augmented reality App that finds Lego pieces you need by pointing the camera at it.

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.

I have spent the last few days digging through 11ty docs. It seems like moving from Jekyll is feasible. But given my custom setup a lack of documentation for trickier aspects might slow things down for a time.

Decided the next step in the website redesign is to migrate to #Eleventy I will swap out the engine but keep it all the same. Then I can evolve the design and architecture easily on the new platform. It is just too much for me to do it all at once in my spare time.
