    • reach goal for dev stuff (writing archives & RSS)
  • Tracy Durnell is working on implementing some items on her website wishlist https://tracydurnell.com/website-wishlist/
    • I love the idea of having a website wishlist! (James)
    • turned on threaded comments and fixed styling
    • investigated Webmention styling
    • resolved admin emails going to spam
    • added arrow to external links in blog posts (why isn't the external link symbol in unicode 😑)
    • added sidenotes and fixed positioning on mobile and desktop
    • added custom styles for pullquotes and terminology
    • created style guide page
  • Angelo Gladding is working on issue posts
  • jo - updating my dream diary page (gemini) and maybe adding a festive/winter style to my website
  • Joe Crawford
    • I have my h-card in the footer to be working - used https://indiewebify.me/validate-h-card/ and it's great - I made changes to my footer that blew away several of the bits of markup I had before
    • I got distracted and tried PabloDraw - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PabloDraw - https://picoe.ca/products/pablodraw/ - which is more of a tool for Demoscene image creation but also can be used to create ASCII art
    • First Second Third goal is to validate that the markup I have on individual posts for indieweb is correct... and I was able to use https://indiewebify.me/ to update the single post - canonical urls for my blog posts so that they show satisfactory data when run against indiewebify against it.

Troubleshooting CSS for sidenote positioning:

gRegor Morrill Speaking of clothing, I learned recently about anti-paparazzi clothing that tricks the camera:

For Angelo Gladding The Made in Oakland - The guy who owns it was telling us about the underground Mario scene https://www.themade.org/ Also cool place to be

Pixel Planet Today if you like environmental posts https://www.pixelplanettoday.com/

For Angelo Gladding Modern browsers, when rendering a pixel art it does compression to lose the "pixelation - https://smorgasborg.artlung.com/image-upsizing-with-svg/ - https://github.com/meyerweb/flaming-shame/ is a tool to turn a pixel art GIF into a SVG that can be upsized without losing the pixel blockiness
