I have to do some more [[Webfinger]] research.
I added a file to this site at .well-known/webfinger to try out delegating a [[remotestorage]] account, and it worked!
More details on the Fission forum, working with @rosano.
What else speaks Webfinger and can be delegated like this? It’s very [[IndieWeb]] feeling.

🔖 Bookmarked: uMap
“lets you create maps with [[OpenStreetMap]] layers in a minute and embed them in your site.”
Open source under [[WTFPL License]], runs on [[Django]] and [[Leaflet]].
The UX of selecting time zones in Apple & Google is horrible. Mostly, filtered search as you type in country or city name seems the most workable.
Particularly relevant as we are living in a more online, more distributed world.
Chatting with @flancian who was wondering if he should support the [[Simply Jekyll]] margin note syntax in [[Anagora]].
Specifically “what do you call this freak of nature???” when he saw the markup 😅
I’ll do a search and replace at some point to convert everything to [[Littlefoot]] which is probably worth a write up [[TO DO]] [[Implementing Littlefoot for footnotes]].
The install was completed right at the end of my birthday.
🔖 Bookmarked: RecipeRadar
RecipeRadar is a free recipe search engine and meal planner that respects your time, privacy, and ability to contribute feedback and improvements.
Open source under [[AGPL License]]. Registered as a Community Interest Company in the UK.
One of my life goals is to commit to a project like this and build out open recipes.
I’m having one of those days. Reserved a car from Avis. Show up at 8am. I have a paper temporary driver’s license because I just renewed it. “Policy” is to have picture ID, even though I’m on file, I always rent from this location, and the desk clerk and manager both recognize me. So: do I complete this rental and then never rent from Avis again, after 20 years? Probably. It’s policy after all.
7 hours of video calls is too many hours of video calls.
There were fun humans on the other side of a number of those hours, but it’s just a lot of screen time.
Helder is starting a public monologue channel on the Fission Discourse. Monologue channels are something we developed for Fission’s internal Discord chat spaces that seem to have worked out well for people, so Helder is trying it in public.
It’s been fun to evolve how we work as a distributed team.
Woo hoo! I am so stoked!
I now have this site auto-publishing using [[Github Actions for Jekyll]], with a [[Fission Publish]] Github Action at the end.
I used the nicely commented limjh16/jekyll-action-ts and then just added fission publish at the end.
Main thing I need to do to complete the rollout of these new journal logs – other than pagination – is to truncate long posts and strip HTML from them.
For short posts, I should not truncate, and actually render markdown.
Probably something like, if the content is bigger than 500 characters,
strip_html and show 250 chars with a read more link. If less than 500, display the content.
For reference, this post is about 480 characters without HTML tags.

It’s my birthday. I’m 46 today. Up late tinkering with my blog. And now I’m going to bed. Good night!

[[JSON]] for Humans (comments and trailing commas)

Like @vgr, I created a [[Clubhouse]] account so that I didn’t have to keep turning down invites.
[[Dendrite]] is a [[Matrix]] server written in [[GoLang]]. This article walks through setting up on an inexpensive VPS.
🔖 Bookmarked: High Lotek - Gemini and the Small Internet
A good overview of [[Gemini]] by Andrew Roach.
It’s a protocol partway between gopher and the web, without tracking, with encryption by default, respectful of users above all else.
I like a lot of the principles, and I understand the push back against, shall we say, the “complicated web”. There’s probably some [[content web vs app web]] feelings going on here too.
🔖 Bookmarked: Why I Still Use RSS
However it wasn’t until I began working from home and everything in my life moved online that I really began to notice how beneficial RSS could be with relation to Digital Wellbeing. By selecting only the sites, blogs, creators etc. that I had a serious interest in, I could effectively remove the negative effects of social media and excessive online usage from my life.

🔖 Bookmarked: A personal reader for Drupal, swentel
Major surgery on the site, nicely celebrated from almost 24 hours ago :) Yes, working on my blog on my birthday has got to be tradition by now.
What was Journals all got dumped into logs. Which is a collection in [[Jekyll]] but I’m going to call them all Journals: more granular daily notes and bookmark postings via [[IndieKit]]. The Journal page groups things by day.
Somewhere in there, implemented [[Littlefoot]] for footnotes, and will mostly remove the [[Simply Jekyll]] specific syntax for margin notes, except for design reasons like the home page.
Another test of the [[Logs]] functionality. A small x should give us Unix timestamps. You can check the current timestamp.
And this. This is the note that will go forth and timestamp appropriately in the [[Logs]] directory.
A final note. To bid farewell. At night. When it is late. And the timestamps are flowing into a git repo.
Tinkering with the site, getting the logs section working. This page on group_by in Liquid is useful. Covers posts grouped by year and month, among other expressions.

A post from 2-20 to see what it looks like
I’ve been having a conversation with Flancian about their [[Anagora]] project: a meta / multi-user knowledge garden. They have implemented [[Roam Research]], [[Foam]], and [[Obsidian]] adapters so far.
Since I’m working on a [[Simply Jekyll Template]] repo that is less customized than my site here, I can use that to see about connecting into Anagora.
Ugh. Went to go for a bike ride first thing this morning and my tire was flat again. It pumped right up again and we went for a 25km ride to Burnaby Lake and back, but it’s clear that the root cause here isn’t fixed yet. I’m going to have to write this all down for Rad and get it fixed properly.
