Having worked on this a while ago, I totally forgot it's already part of my lousy Webmention plugin (which badly needs smarter scheduling and feedback, but hey).

I’ve been using Mastodon for quite a while now—since , give or take—but have never posted a proper .

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.

Even though my knowledge of Go is entirely non-existent, I’d love to see that code!

Today @jle just hacked some #ActivityPub into their #Hugo blog (at @en) First step to getting the static cms world to join the #fediverse!

Kinda curious how JAMstack + headless WordPress "improves security," as if keeping WP updated (which is pretty much all it takes, and can be surprisingly easy) would no longer be needed.

@sean@social.deadsuperhero.com @sikkdays@ourempty.pub @bekopharm@social.tchncs.de Just made my Hugo blog work with ActivityPub today (currently it supports accepting follow requests and translates replies to webmentions). It doesn't have a database and ActivityPub doesn't need a database at all and can work with just flat files and a dynamic part that sends and handles the HTTP requests, perfectly fine.

“Global Styles” does feel an awful lot like the Theme Options pages of horrible “premium” themes.

Now, why does Mastodon return an "invalid token" error when accessed thru the API, when it did not do that yesterday? (I've already acquired a new one a couple times; still doesn't work.)

(Someone should just do this in Laravel, though, sans all the bells and whistles, and with dead-simple SQL search so that it can run anywhere.)

osTicket runs pretty much out of the box, but looks terribly dated. Zammad looks nice, and is a bit easier to use, I think—like, less cluttered—but très resource-heavy, although it might actually work in this case, with just a handful users. Redmine, though not exactly a helpdesk system, isn’t off the table, yet, either.

Note to dumbass self: the `elasticsearch` directory has to be writable by the user with UID 1000.

Taking a break from life to focus on my Mastodon account

Bookmarked: css-tricks.com/https-is-easy/.

I’ve got this totally backwards, with three different hosting providers and three more domain registrars (but I think I’m doing okay).

Spiders _are_ treated differently, by the way. (They get served existing cached pages, but pages they see won’t normally get cached.)

Shouldn’t I test? (Shouldn’t plugin developers?) I can still roll back the changes when something goes awry, much like I if I’d just hit the “Update” button in WP Admin.
