So, I’m a thirtysomething mechanical engineer and lousy guitarist. I work in the semiconductor industry, spend most of my spare time developing for the web, and own quite a few affordable (!) electric guitars, a handful of Raspberry Pis, and a couple hacked together MAME—I know—cabinets. Also, happily married, father of two, wannabe investor.
To do: look into `fseek()`? My guess is we don’t need it; we `fopen()` a remote stream, forward a range header (whatever the browser sends us), and directly output, using `fpassthru()`, whichever resulting bytes we’re being sent by the upstream server—i.e., they’re doing the “seeking” for us. Also “Content-Length” and so on, we’re merely passing on. May wanna prevent a time-out, tho.
Allowing a 206 HTTP status and Accept-Ranges header (and passing thru Range request headers) seems to have done the trick. A next step would be `preload="none"` (rather than `metadata`) on `video` elements, and a (possibly autogenerated) poster image.
Anyone looking to add Fediverse (Mastodon, Pixelfed, et al.) icons to Twenty Twenty-One’s footer menu, the theme comes with two filter hooks that make this sort of thing really easy. https://github.com/janboddez/add-fediverse-icons-to-jetpack/issues/4#issuecomment-885560883
Like, I could probably get things working with a keyboard shortcut and a WordPress hack or two.
Totally using my feed reader as a read-it-later app and it’s awesome. On mobile. I need a proper desktop/in-browser Micropub client.
There’s a single site my feed reader can no longer handle, and I think it’s IPv6-related and that I might be able to work around it.
Just finished making this little isometric mini world in #Krita. Been wanting to try this for a while. Made up of photos from Unsplash.
Krita is really, really good for photo editing / manipulation. Non destructive adjustments, perspective warping, easy clipping and masking. Sometimes a little laggy, but a legit alternative to Photoshop.

Catching up in the shop: getting a workout getting the corvette build ready for the finishing stages.
Just shows, once more, how algorithms are lacking.

Happy to see that while https://css-irl.info/rss.xml is still broken my reader downloads new posts just fine.
@mdales Just a quick question: I noticed my feed reader times out trying to fetch https://www.mynameismwd.org/index.xml, a whopping 3.43 MB with 1713 posts in it. Now, I know more users of static site generator do this, i.e., include _all_ of their posts rather than the most recent 20 or so, and I wonder if it's a conscious choice? Like, isn't it up to readers to regularly poll for new entries?

Might replace the sidebar with something better suited for admin pages.
