A feed of my life

Had an hour tonight to add in some quality of life code, auto-tagging links and Twitter handle links.

It has irked me for a while that when using a Micropub client I couldn’t link these up as easily as manually writing the file.

My code is here which you can copy wholesale if you are running Eleventy, just make sure you set the linkify option to true (as well as the code below) or it won’t work.

I have also had a change of heart around pausing the syndication and webmention servers, so they are back online and I can receive webmentions.

Playing whack-a-mole with a few bugs and being a grown-up, before racing to the fun redesign stuff. Being a grown-up is hard.

Today is new Macbook Pro day! Finally got my data migrated from the broken machine and I am back in business, itching to get started on the blog.

Squinting in to an iPad, using Sidecar so I can do a few things on my broken laptop before the new one arrives… it kinda works. Kinda.

My 2016 MacBook has been slowly dying over the last two years. It started with broken keys and random restarts and today the screen died and it’s borderline useless. This is going to get expensive…

Fixed that bug causing the 2019 redesign post to get republished in the JSON and XML feeds everytime I deployed the website. Sorry about that!

Bought myself a new dot grid moleskin to design my website on. I find when I step back from the computer my creativity isn’t bound by constraints and my mind can wonder to interesting places
