Kind notes

 Note

PSA to folks with washing machines that sit under a counter with a little space on top - next time you're cleaning, pull it out. I've just found a treasure trove of washing up gloves, dishcloths, tubs and a bowl!

 Note

I'm really surprised that with all the other amazing stuff Dyson have made, they've not yet made a vacuum cleaner that doesn't scare animals 🤷🏽‍♂️

 Note

So turns out that when I said "yes dinner is ready" to Anna Dodson I actually meant "I put it in the oven on the wrong temperature and dinner isn't cooked yet" 😳

 Note

And for folks who've rightfully come out of Pauline Narvas's talk at #WiTNotts wanting to start blogging, there's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham which is every other week (online) and is a great space to put two hours aside to blog / work on your website

 Note

YES! Pauline Narvas's comment at #WiTNotts about having blogging influence the quality/length of her Pull Request descriptions resonates massively with me. Since doing more blogging / technical writing I've found that my written communication has improved greatly - or maybe it's just more verbose 😅

 Note

"Blogging is more (to me) than the amount of views per month.. it can be whatever you want it to be" - great point by Pauline Narvas about how when blogging you shouldn't try to fit the niche - it's something I try to practice too by writing for myself under "blogumentation" https://www.jvt.me/posts/2017/06/25/blogumentation/ #WiTNotts

 Note

Just pushed a fix for meetup-mf2.jvt.me as it's not handling the Online events very well - it should now respond a bit better

 Note

Hey Terence Eden https://github.com/arkadiyt/zoom-redirector may be of interest to you in relation to https://shkspr.mobi/blog/2020/03/zooms-forced-app-is-irresponsible/ (if you've not already seen it) as a way to auto-redirect to the browser client, not the native client

 Note

Reminder that it's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham tomorrow - we're online only on Zoom, and I'll share the link in the Tech Nottingham Slack for Nottingham folks https://events.indieweb.org/2020/04/online-homebrew-website-club-nottingham-UpVd9JZeVzx6

 Note

Putting my washing away while pair programming with a colleague - this is peak working from home!

 Note

Do I know of anyone using (Arch) #Linux on a new Dell XPS 13 9300? I'm very tempted to get one (in maybe a couple of months) but wonder what support is like? Especially the fingerprint sensor

 Note

Currently enjoying an opt-in #mindfulness session with the rest of the company - some good tips to help us cope better with everything going on right now, and nice to have continued investment in myself and my colleagues #LifeAtCapitalOne

 Note

Great thing about my new Bluetooth headphones? I can pace while attending meetings, because I don't exactly get as much exercise as pre-#coronavirus home working! At least when my video is off, that is

 Note

I can now produce platform-aware @-mentions of folks on my blog! For instance Anna Dodson has her URL linked on my site, but her Twitter account when this post appears on Twitter. Read more at https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/03/22/at-mention-people/

 Note

#HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham is on Zoom tonight, courtesy of the wonderful #IndieWeb organisers - you can find all the events details on https://events.indieweb.org/2020/03/online-homebrew-website-club-nottingham-anniversary-edition--Rcujt5SykHv1

 Note

Anyone in the #Hugo community able to give me a hand with https://discourse.gohugo.io/t/date-based-pagination-one-list-page-per-day/23870/3 ? I'm trying to get pagination working so I have one page per day (with all the posts per day) but I can't seem to get the right incantation, if even possible?

 Note

It is with regret (but pragmatism!) that I announce that the #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham anniversary meal on Wednesday (https://events.indieweb.org/2020/03/homebrew-website-club-nottingham-anniversary-edition--Rcujt5SykHv1) is postponed.

We'll instead meet on https://technottingham.com/slack - and will plan to do so for the forseable future.

 Note

Doh - just hit the 2GB RAM limit on the VPS that hosts www-api.jvt.me and a few other services I host. Thankfully it's incredibly easy to rescale the instance on @hetzner_online and within a couple of minutes I'm back up and running with 4GB!

 Note

Been a great day at #IndieWebCamp London - thanks for some great conversations. Got several things I may work on at tomorrow's hack day, so will have to see what I end up doing

 Note

 Note

It's about time to demo my personal website at #IndieWebCamp London - I've got some pre-written notes about what I want to talk about on https://etherpad.indieweb.org/IWC_London_Site_demos although some of you who know me will know I can talk for ages about my site and the #IndieWeb!

 Note

Has Green Giant changed their 🌽 recipe? Cause it does not taste as lovely and sweet any more 😢

 Note

Very excited for #IndieWebCamp London tomorrow - it may not be in person due to #coronavirus but the IndieWebCamp events are built to be remote friendly - and regardless of where we are it'll be a great time. We are a distributed bunch, after all

 Note

#IndieWeb folks who still interact with Twitter - how do you consume it? Do you use Twitter.com and share it to your ie Micropub client? Do you subscribe to it with your Microsub / Social Reader? Or something else?

 Note

Q: What can you do as a consumer?

Answer from Jeremy: Use #Firefox and anti-tracking software Answer from Remy: Don't be a consumer - build for the Web platform, make and share things

Jeremy: Nowadays, having a website is "disruptive" - use that to your advantage!

#TechNott

 Note

"Reducing complexity increases chance of mass adoption" - this is the reason that folks are seeing this content on Twitter on #TechNott rather than directly on my own blog.

But the #IndieWeb are trying to make things better - come and help us build a better Web which works for you!

 Note

This talk from @adactio and @rem at #TechNott is also really interesting to think about how websites and applications age, and potentially whether someone will be resurrecting something you've built in the future?

 Note

I both really like the idea of, and am terrified of, not having a staging environment. Having seen how some folks treat their staging environment, I'd never wish users to experience that in production! #TechNott

 Note

Is anyone at #TechNott interested in #PHP? You're in luck, because Thursday is #PHPMiNDS and we've got the awesome @akrabat speaking about Slim 4: PHP's Microwebframework
