Stupid-simple bash script to create a local copy of a website


printf "\n\n    Please enter the URL of the website you wish to download.\n    Do not include leading 'http://' or 'https://'?\n\n\n"
printf "    "
read URL
printf "\n\n    Depending on the size of the website you just\n    entered, this may take a few minutes.\n\n\n"
sleep 6
wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links --restrict-file-names=windows --domains ${URL} --no-parent http://${URL}
printf "\n\n  DONE!\n\n\n"

All the heavy lifting is done by wget, so that will need to be installed before using the script

The International Space Station preformed a pretty epic photo bomb today.

Today was a really excellent day. Avi and I adventured with an old friend whom I haven't seen in faaaaar toooooo looooooong. A burrito was also eaten, and many wood chips were moved from one location to another. There was an eclipse.

First night in the new bed!

We share this wall with our neighbors. Avi sometimes sits and stares at it when he can hear the neighbors in their kitchen.

That, or he's putting himself in timeout. A behavior we have no clue where he picked it up, becuase we've never put him in timeout before.

It's been awesome biking to work on my new bike! I decided that riding a fixed gear with a kids seat (not pictured) was probably not the greatest idea, so I said good bye to my beloved and ancient fixed gear steed and upgraded to something with gears! 8 of them at that! Also, front basket: 👌👍🙌💯

Vagrant and the indieweb

I've been playing with vagrant over the last few days. I'm pretty excited about it. I started to run into issues relying on MAMP, so I put together a wicked basic LAMP stack to fiddle with. Check it out! Next week I'm going to assemble a vagrant box that is a mirror of the servers we use at work.

I played with a heap of the online tooling that helps with writing vagrantfiles, but so far I've found doing it manually has the best results. Thinking of ways to integrate a tool like vagrant into the indieweb. Wondering about a preconfigured box that'll get folks up and running with wordpress including all the necessary indieweb plugins, maybe?

Is it just me or is writing cronjob's on macOS wicked difficult? It is silly, but I can't get them to write to the file half the time 🤔

This evening I finally finished migrating a few old posts from the previous incarnation of my blog. Check 'em out if you so please:

  1. Cli poetry
  2. Echo, please
  3. Boring fjords


Spending a lot of time with a toddler results in my being aware of transitions. Spotting them from a galaxy away is quickly becoming a sort of superpower. Transitions are often difficult for Avi—from park to stroller, from stroller to house, from playing to supper. Entering into a transition with intention makes them easier. They can be choreographed to go more smoothly.

I don’t think Avi is unique in finding transitions troubling or difficult. They are just straight-up difficult sometimes. We recently moved. Major transition. I recently started a new job. Major transition. Perhaps toddlers are willing to more clearly articulate the difficulty of transitions because they’re less able to actually articulate what is going on. Transitions are often inflicted on toddlers (e.g. I say it is time for supper despite Avi’s having a blast at the park, such is the dictate of adult-timed life).

I’ve observed that transitions can be made easier when Avi has a little bit of say in them. Granted, I can’t necessarily allow him the freedom to stay at the playground for hours on end, but I can offer a supplemental choice mid-transition.

Example: It is time to leave the park. I let Avi choose how he wants to leave. Either in the stroller or on my shoulders. It seems weird, but this almost always helps. Rather than our leaving the park, we’re doing a new activity…something sort of his choosing…either riding in the spaceship-stroller or pretending to ride a dinosaur!

Why are transitions difficult? I don’t really wanna go down that route because I have no clue, nor am I a psychologist and I don’t want to tread on Malcolm Gladwell’s pop-psychological shoes.

I think transitions are difficult though. I’m gonna run with that.


Enter the model-of-a-modern-American-media-landscape.

Before Avi was born I often thought about having children…never did I think I’d be worried about said-thought-children having to live in a world where literal Nazis murdered people in the streets. But here we are. Here I am.

Which brings me back to transitions and how difficult they can be. It is my hope that things are currently difficult because they’re transitioning from here to better.

Today ▁▂▄▆█ Tomorrow

As opposed to

Today █▇▅▄▂ Tomorrow

I wonder if there is a way to guarantee that this difficult transition goes well (which is to say “Nazis stop murdering people in the street”…and maybe stop being Nazis, too)?

This isn’t a fully formed thought. I don’t really have anything profound or particularly insightful to end this post with. There are organizers out there doing amazing work. Brave work. 🙌

Stepping up, showing up, seems wicked important right now. Figuring out how to do that in a meaningful way is the task at hand I suppose.

In reply to: I'm curious what, if anything, you all think that the IndieWeb as a community could do or do better to make things easier for Generation

I think @manton's micro.blog offers a great model of the indieweb. It, like quill or webmention.io, is a microservice or set of microservices that leverages indieweb tech in a user friendly way. When the indieweb works more like the social media that folks are already familiar with (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) the less friction there is to join. So...this is all to say, in the end, I think better on boarding materials and user-friendlier documentation would go a LOOOOONG way. BUT, before one can create such documents there needs to be a relatively stable way of joining the indieweb. Between wordpress and micro.blog I think that is starting to emerge.

In reply to: I'm curious what, if anything, you all think that the IndieWeb as a community could do or do better to make things easier for Generation

I wonder if the generations are still applicable and/or useful? Generation 2 is so broadly defined it is difficult to say what "they" need, because as a group of users they're not very clearly articulated. What if the focused shifted to features? ...this isn't to say away from users, but to re-articulate phases of indieweb growth by ease of use?

The big move, part 2

Today we closed on the new place in Portland! We’ll move in over the next week or so, then, starting the second week of August, I’m full-tilt into my new job 🎉🍍🎈

Living in the cabin has been trying at times, but also a blast. Because the cabin is tiny, doesn’t have a kitchen or running water we’ve spent heaps of time in the woods, in town, and adventuring. We’ve fallen in love with the island all over again — all while remaining excited to move to the city. We’ve spent loads of time with friends, eaten great food and gone on miles and miles of walks.

Once we get settled in the new place I’m looking forward to jumping back in to the indieweb community, but also getting to know some folks in the Portland area. Thinking of starting a local Homebrew Website Club 🤷‍♀️🖥

Transitioning to the new job will be an adventure. I’m pepped to take on a more technical position, but know I’ll still be thinking like a project manager and product designer. Over the next few days, beside moving, I’m hoping to read a heap of documentation, best practices, and other orientation materials I’ve been amassing. There seems to be a plethora of info about transitioning from web to mobile platforms, but not a lot the other way, so I’ve been focused on more general aspects: architectures, intros to AWS (I’m weirdly unfamiliar with AWS), anything and everything written by Martin Fowler

…other than that stuff, I haven’t been reading heaps. It is dark in the cabin in the evenings. I did read Valerian & Laureline, vol 2. The Empire of a Thousand Planets…which I’d describe exactly as I described vol 1.

méh to bad, but supposedly a classic of sorts. I like the coloring, though. If they fall into my lap I’ll probably read more

The colors are gorgeous. The pencils are clean. The art is fairly rich for the most part, but toes the line of being exploitative whenever Laureline is involved. The story…the story is like an episode in the middle of a season of Start Trek The Next Generation that starts with Data talking to his cat.

I’ve got Paper Girls, vol. 1 lined up next.

While I haven’t read heaps. I’ve listened to a load of podcasts lately. Some recent highlights include:

In reply to: Monstrous Landscapes: The Interdependence of Meaning between Monster and Landscape in Beowulf–By Charlotte Ball | Hortulus

Grendel is the source of most of the descriptive language of borderlands in Beowulf. By describing him, the poet defines these edges, and thus it is the edges that define Grendel. Grendel is the “Mearcstapa” [border walker] (l.103) and even “moras heold” [held the moors] (l.103). Like the relationship between the society and Heorot, Grendel is defined in terms of his environment and, in turn, determines his environment. Grendel is inextricable from these borders. His trespassing of these borders causes the violence and conflict in Beowulf. His occupation of these borders is habitual; he continues his crossing of them for years between his first attack and his death at the hands of Beowulf.

Researchers who have pored through data, including vast medical records and hundreds of in-person interviews and questionnaires, found a strong correlation between men’s flourishing lives and their relationships with family, friends, and community.

Week one living in the cabin has been an adventure. I think we're hitting our stride, but we've also been heaps lucky that the weather has been wicked cooperative. We've been able to spend the majority of every evening wandering around outside, which has been 💯

So far the biggest hurdle hasn't been the lack of running water, it's been not having a kitchen or any way to really prep food. Also, the dog is terrified of the woods. She's such a city-slicker, our hound.

The big move

We’re out! Packed, cleaned, and moved out. The last few days have been crazy busy, at times wicked emotional, and occasionally exhausting…neigh, straight up exhausting. Between Virginia being away on a business trip all last week, Avi having to go to the ER twice for a badly infected bug bite over the weekend and both Virginia and I coming down with the flu this past week moving out of our old place has been an adventure. But we’re done. We said good bye to our first home on Friday.
