Short form notes

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.

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.
