I’ve fallen down the LogSeq rabbit-hole (kinda forced to, as work stopped allowing Obsidian)
Thing is, I’m already using it far more consistently than I did Obsidian, and it’s only been 2 days. 🤞🏻it might be the note taking system I actually stick to… Full blog post maybe coming later this week
Every time I need or want to make a graphic for something, I miss Fireworks MX just a little bit more. That was such a good bit of software, and Adobe just flat out let it wither. I built so many websites in the early 2000’s using Fireworks, and it made the job fun.
Every so often I’ll leave a pile of paints on the desk and stumble across some unexpectedly 🔥 colour combinations. This is today’s: bold oranges + deep magenta.
I really need to get more of my feeds hooked up to micro.blog again…
I’ve seen a lot of people posting about reading achievements and goals lately, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t plug my partner’s YouTube channel where she talks about the books she’s read: https://www.youtube.com/@KapowskiReads. It’s all very low stakes and cosy, so if that’s your thing, check it out.
I’ve still got some work to do, but I’m super close to adding ~590 historical posts to my blog, stretching back to 2003. Just got some data clean up to finish, to get everything building properly. I think I’ll need to rethink how I present my archives, but that’s a job for later
Last week I posted that the vibe had changed on Threads lately. After thinking about it, and logging in for a few minutes today, I’ve just gone ahead and deleted my account. I gave it a try — despite all the reservations — and it turned out it wasn’t for me.
Day 2476 of December 2023: still living off of party food, with no end in sight.
5 minutes into the new Doctor Who, and I’m absolutely sold on the new cast.
I logged into Threads, this morning, for the first time in maybe a couple of weeks, and “the vibes” seem to have dropped off a cliff
My feed used to be pretty positive and varied, but right now it’s just regurgitated memes, copypasta, and a big spike in counter-productive dunk posts.
I’m currently sorting through an export of ~2900 posts from various old blogs of mine, with the goal of getting a lot of it back online in the next few days/months. The oldest recoverable post was from 2002. I was still a teenager at the time!
Shock, horror, that viral story about the 3 pose bridal picture isn’t quite as it was first presented.
There’s two days of thick frost in the garden that has started to form into a forest of crystals. It looks really pretty.
