After seeing my Spotify Wrapped playlist for the year, and some of the usage stats, I think I'm definitely going to be writing an application to get that data out for myself and my own usages

So around ~1312 my server that hosts services such as https://meetup-mf2.jvt.me and https://eventbrite-mf2.jvt.me/ but also my Micropub endpoint and other things restarted. Not 100% sure why (as it turns out that the logs didn't persist) but turns out that my webserver ( https://caddyserver.com/ ) hadn't been configured to restart post-boot, but all the other services had. Woops! Glad I didn't have a tonne of content to push, but it was a bit worrying having no way to resolve it, as I had no laptop to SSH and diagnose.
Hey https://realize.be is the source code for the Web page hosted at https://indigenous.realize.be anywhere? I was looking to contribute client metadata https://indieauth.spec.indieweb.org/#client-information-discovery similar to how Jacky does at https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/1f8ffba0-e948-4dac-aa6a-3975074cced9 (issue was raised at https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/jvt.me/issues/821 to implement)
Well, I think I've cracked it - after a few weeks of on-and-off work on making my webmention sending not spam everyone (see https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/10/30/reader-mail-webmention-spam/ ) - it's now not re-sending them if they're successful. This is a good first step, but I'll be improving it to re-send if the post's data has changed since last time it tried (in the future). Note that this isn't quite done yet, expect it to be live tomorrow perhaps.
Woo, thanks to https://realize.be/ for releasing an update of the wonderful Android app https://indigenous.realize.be/ which adds in a fix to not send multiple bearer tokens in Micropub requests ( https://github.com/swentel/indigenous-android/issues/241 ) This started breaking for me when I upgraded my Micropub endpoint to use the spring-oauth2-resource-server module ( https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/www-api/merge_requests/27 ) which is a well-formed OAuth2 server, whereas my previous implementation was not. Super speedy fix, and glad to be back to using the app again!

How I feel when I'm ill - https://www.reddit.com/r/AbruptChaos/comments/dk3cad/abrupt_flu
I've just updated my posts https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/06/13/pretty-printing-jwt-openssl/ and https://www.jvt.me/posts/2018/08/31/pretty-printing-jwt-ruby/ to allow it to work with pretty-printing encrypted JWTs (without decrypting) - this was a bit of a pain point of mine I've finally got around to sorting.
Great to see that Meetup.com has realised the error in their ways, even if it was only meant for a small group (but not written as such) https://www.meetup.com/lp/paymentchanges I still think there's some lasting damage there and we should still be looking to build open platforms.

Happy #PronounsDay! My pronouns are he/him/his, and you can read them programmatically on my website (using #Microformats), as described in https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/04/10/pronouns-microformats/ It's super important to make them visible so folks everywhere are more comfortable sharing their pronouns

#Hacktoberfest PR #3 complete! https://github.com/phpminds/website/issues/136 - another productive #HomebrewWebsiteClub, and I even managed to support some other repos + get some stuff ready for maybe number 4
It's been an awesome day at IndieWebCamp Amsterdam! The afternoon was chatting about licenses and ownership, then looking at how to migrate folks from silos to IndieWeb with a long term strategy, then some discussions about events, RSVPs and calendars, and finally all things syndication. Got some great discussions, and lots of interesting things to play with tomorrow at the hack day!
I think at https://www.jvt.me/events/homebrew-website-club-nottingham/2019/09/18/ tonight I'm going to write a how-to for setting up your first h-card, similar to https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/08/21/rsvp-from-your-website/
