Debugging @print css is...interesting. Chrome and Firefox each support some debugging for the @print context, but it isn't great. I've generated A LOT of PDFs this morning

While RSS has disappeared into the plumbing of the internet, there’s still something fundamental about it. Its durability is remarkably impressive, especially in the context of the lack of the evolution and perceived displacement of the protocol over the past few years

When designing APIs, this Wikipedia page is your friend. HTTP codes are good. They are important. They are beautiful. They should be used...not ignored. Respected...not ignored. HTTP codes are good.

Thanks so much! I think my post to indieweb.xyz got muddled because it went from my website to telegraph.p3k.io while also being syndicated to micro.blog. Issues of hazy and lazy decentralization by silo-hopping. Whoops!

In reply to: Indieweb.xyz: Difficult or Silo?

In a way, it’s a silo—a central info container. Silos make it easy. You go there and dump stuff in. But, here in the Indieweb, we want No Central. We want Decentral. Which is more difficult because all these little sites and blogs out there have to work together—that’s tough!

In reply to: Where draughts are truly dangerous - Telegraph

In Romania, the greatest threat to life today is not poverty, climate change or al-Qa'eda. It's moving air. Fans, air conditioning and open windows are not - as I had thought - useful mechanisms to generate a nice breeze, or give a little respite as summer temperatures climb to around 40 degrees. They are weapons of mass destruction.

Continuing:

It turned out that "cur-rent", or the draught that circulates when two windows are open, is blamed in Romania for almost every ill one can think of. Toothache, headache, cold, flu, meningitis, paralysis, even death - all are apparently the result of moving air. This was solemnly confirmed to me by Vasile's mum, who has just retired from a 30-year career as a nurse.

I think computers have completely blown it with discovery. The smartest minds have all been working on this for decades now and it has been a disaster. The question to me now is just: how do we equip our librarians? And I tend to think that we don’t need anything more—our technology is totally under-utilized.

In reply to: Five Classic Designs That Help Kids Become Independent - CityLab

[...] every family is considered an island that must provision for itself. The idea of designing a neighborhood for families as part of a public good just goes against the whole way we think about family life.

Family life has become so stressed in this country. That’s connected to the way we design cities, and to things like commute times, not having communal play spaces, and having streets be unsafe. All of those things take more of the parents’ time or money to navigate, because the child can’t do it on their own. [If you said,] “We want to build a family-friendly city,” it would seem almost un-American.

Reading this thread is like reading a cubist rendition of Veils. I love it.


We had a lot of fun exploring Portsmouth, NH this morning. We’ve driven through, and grabbed a bite to eat a few times but we’d never taken the time to wander the city. It was fun ambling around the nearly colonial-era streets.

Quick day trip to New Hampshire. Live free and die.
