Notes

Short thoughts and replies that weren't a whole blog post.

  1. A garden blog where you can post the growth (or decline) of your plants and gardens. Would be really cool to see changes over time. Would also be cool to see more updates about people taking care of their plants and building a culture around that. We have Instagram accounts...

  2. A search engine that only checks posts from specific people and sites you follow. Specifically for recipes, reviews/recommendations. There’s a lot of SEO crap out there. This would hinge on people and brands building enough trust that people opt-in to them rather than building enough SEO juice to get to...

  4. I’d like to recognize Vizio for finally fixing Chromecast support on their “Smartcast” TV. Was getting close to 2 years of their headline feature being completely broken. Gold star for you ⭐️

  5. One upside for HBO rebranding their streaming to “Max” is that the name is so non-descript I didn’t notice the credit card charges after I was supposed to cancel our trial. Well done corporate.

  6. Happy 2024 everyone. Here’s to gradual improvement over all or nothing goals 🥂

  7. Was great to meet everyone at IndieWebCamp San Diego this weekend! Had some productive conversations and learned a lot about what other people are doing. I hope we can meet again soon.

  9. My favorite part of Apple Music’s “Spotify Wrapped” clone is seeing where the app broke and logged 100+ plays on something I only played a few times. Last year was a Charlie Brown Christmas with an honorable mention of 60 plays of The Prince of Egypt. This year was Pixar’s...

  10. I recently added a micropub server to make it easier to post to my site. Sorry if that means more dumb words. I’m hoping it encourages me to post more pictures though.

  11. Watching the Beckham documentary puts a whole 'nother dimension to Ted Lasso as an American.

  12. I donate blood for the free snacks.

  13. TIL that AM and PM (short for the latin ante meridiem and post meridiem) are styled lowercase with a preceding space and punctuation in most style guides “10:10 a.m.” or “6 p.m.” rather than uppercase. Or if the style is upper case, small caps are recommended with no punctuation such...

  14. I just merged a big update to the site which adds dark mode and some other style changes. The site now uses system fonts and doesn’t include the material css library which should reduce the size of the initial page load. The main goal was simplifying the codebase but css...
