How many coffee cups a day is the healthy amount? “None” is not an acceptable answer.

I didn’t register to vote in the city I’m currently living in so I could use elections as an excuse to go to my hometown. Had a blast reuniting with family and friends I hadn’t seen since before the pandemic.

In the primaries I voted for Francia Márquez, a black feminist woman who’s been putting privileged men in their place in every single debate she’s been in. Wish she did better, but now I’m really hoping she will be our vice-president. For Senate, as always, I went with the left.

This year it seems like for the first time in over 200 years the country might have a leftist government. If the current political scenario took place 20-25 years ago there would’ve been at least a couple of candidates assassinated.

Peace is just around the corner. I’m really hopeful for the future 🕊️🇨🇴

Thank you! And yes 100% recommend http://umami.is. It is very straightforward, and I certainly don’t need a lot. Is just to satisfy my curiosity from time to time.

That was an awfully formatted “auto-tweet”. Sorry about that. Microformats are hard to get right I guess…

Couple months ago, worse thing for me is that I was stuck in the “Figma (design) phase” thankfully I recently changed my approach and shipped an MVP version and I’m still tweaking it but I’m more happy now.

Your website looks great! And I love how you kept the various designs you have had over the years. I see that you’re using umami analytics, would you recommend it?

I’m still relying on several third-parties to handle the #IndieWeb stuff, such as IndieAuth.com, Webmention.io, Aperture, Webmention.app and using IFTTT to process webhooks, which makes the next step to self-host these services, but long live #Bridgy and #granary!

I’ve tried to “upgrade” my static site generator many times, always end up sticking with it. In joining the #IndieWeb my website now integrates all essential features for my public online activity and feature-wise it’s everything I ever wanted.

mfw it all runs on #Jekyll

Keeping accessible format playlists has some appeal, although potentially a lot of manual work unless I found some way to transform the csv files I downloaded from Exportify into a blog post.

This is actually how I post my playlists. Exported csv files and a Jekyll template. There must be a Wordpress plugin for this, there’s one for everything 😅

How old were you when you accepted you’ll never be done “polishing” your personal website? This perpetual redesign is no longer a phase.

Had the time this weekend to push updates to the website. New Tanzawa-inspired design, improvements to the micropub client, further testing of RYM-replacement and after a couple silent months, a new spotify-less playlist has arrived.

What readers are people using? I alternate between Indigenous on Android and yarr but I feel like I'm missing something

I was using yarr and Indigenous on iOS and replaced both with Together. I would prefer a non-React based alternative, but it just works.

After a couple of years using Arch-based distros I installed elementary OS again. Can’t believe how much it’s improved since I last used Freya.

On this day 45 years ago this was released. #NowPlaying: What in the World by David Bowie.

I have configured my website to start syndicating notes to fed.brid.gy. You can now follow me on the fediverse at @jamesg.blog@jamesg.blog.

Does it actually work for you? I was able to set it up and send a couple of toots but then it just stopped working. Sending webmentions to brid.gy/publish/mastodon and syndicating to an actual Mastodon account seems to work.

People agree that after many years of irrelevancy Rock is kind of having a revival. Most bands leading it are prominently using non-guitar strings, which is the formula coined by Lou Reed and John Cale. Eno was right, Rock will perpetually owe to The Velvet Underground & Nico.
