Screenshot showing the result of my “‘Fetch original content’ function.” Why? Some RSS feeds contain only summaries. Using this, you could (try to) fetch actual, full articles instead.
Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.
Trying out my “Fetch original content” Aperture addition, which’ll be set per channel/source combo. Ima have to add another field, too, to specify what XPath selector to go for.
Alright. Been tweaking my Aperture install a bit, so this post’ll serve as a bit of a test.
Should change my favicon to match my h-card photo.
Dang, I’ve definitely started drifting away from WordPress theming. It’s simultaneously sad and cool to see some of my once favorite Automattic themes get retired, and a large number of new, great-looking and free themes appear. (I’d love to start experimenting again, but then I also love, uhm, some control over my sites’ HTML.)

Update: got it, I think.
Love the renewed attention for “classless” CSS frameworks, but I’m gonna keep calling them CSS—or browser—resets. (Just kidding—nah, I’m serious—but this is how I’ve been approaching web design for the longest time. Doesn’t mean I’m somehow against “component-based design,” by the way. [That said, I rarely need more than a handful of classes beyond microformats, “the simplest way to mark up structured information in HTML.”])
Also, quoting from Jeremy Keith’s “Robustness and Least Power”:
Choose the least powerful language suitable for a given purpose.

A Laravel pseudo-daemon “will instruct Laravel to try to run [a] command every minute, to place it in the background, and to not start another one until the first one is finished.”
Laravel handles that whole part for us, out of the box, for free.

Thought about this for way too long. The simple answer is: they don’t. (Luckily! Driving would be awfully confusing.)
I will never understand why mirrors flip the image horizontally but not vertically.

Honestly, it’s things like this Testimonials pattern that worry me a bit. Say you’re displaying testimonials sort of all over your site. (Let’s make it multilingual, too.) You’re now asked to update a quote. In twelve or so locations. (If you’d used a [non-public] custom post type, like [some version of] Jetpack’s testimonials, you’d do this only once [per language].) Luckily, you can now copy blocks around, too, but still.

There’s probably a few doubles in my blogroll, as I
was still am auto-syncing both Miniflux’s OPML endpoint and that of my Aperture instance to it. Thinking it’s time to let go of the former, however, now that I’m pretty much exclusively using my own blend of Aperture + Monocle to read news/blogs.
Now that was interesting. I’m posting a dozen empty replies-to-self, as a test of sorts, and do not see them appear as notes … because they end up taking the shape of regular articles, completely messing up my front page and article h-feed. 🤦
Found this pure-PHP Camo clone that I’ll use for my Microsub reader/Monocle fork, instead of a self-hosted image proxy. Pros: I’m almost able to run the entire thing on a dead-cheap shared hosting environment. Cons: I still need a caching proxy that’s able to resize and crop avatars, for now. (Ideally, though, the Microsub server would do all that. [No? Well, maybe not.])
I’m totally down with the IndieWeb thing. While I can’t fully wrap my head around the IndieWeb community as a whole, I love the idea of owning my own content, whether that’s blog posts, saved links, social media posts, images, videos, or whatever.
