Short form notes

Wondering if I could work out a method for a complexity rating at each stage over a given process. It would be a way to ensure at no point during a service things get to complex for a user and they abandon it. Or it could be used as an analysis tool to identify problems

the blog has been quiet for a while but work is continuing when I can during lockdown. I have been refactoring and tidying up my indieweb server. I have also been experimenting with Netlify functions, which are not fun to use at all. Lots learned, but not a lot to show right now

Just implemented @Netlify Large Media. It was super simple to setup. one Minor niggle, it did not play well with Node 12, downgrading to 10.13 solved the issue.

Starting to feel like I am only a few weeks away from getting my port from Jekyll to Eleventy done. I definitely think I need to write up a blog post. Lots of learning to document

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. They 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!

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.
