Going to stop forwarding replies to the “main thread,” I think. On this site, I mean. Their comment/webmention “renditions” are too often missing markup or images. I mean, unless I fix _that_. The downside would be that “follow-up replies” are currently only shown on that “main thread.” (Aargh.)

Just noticed someone wrap their existing `entry-content` in another one, causing the element’s overall padding to be twice what it (probably) should be.

(This other thing I keep seeing is `p-name` inside a _note_.)

New joystick, button blank where the extra hole used to be. Not perfect, but better.

Meanwhile, scanned and cleaned up the sound adjustment instruction sheet that can be found inside, ’cause I felt like it. Also found a complete manual online, in PDF format.

Hoping I’ll soon be able to finally spend some of my spare time on the arcade cab I got well over a year ago. 😬

There's all the benefits (and drawbacks) of literal static file hosting, and you could generate fresh HTML off of your Markdown files at literally any time.

I mean, if I wanted to use an SSG, I'd probably just get Jigsaw, which is pure PHP and runs on nearly every web host. Just set the document root for your domain to its output folder. That's it.

The “W3C CMS selection” (and why WordPress didn’t make the cut) is a rather interesting read, in fact. Quick note: if Statamic and the costs that come with it aren’t for you, maybe Jigsaw is. jigsaw.tighten.co/

A list of things I would like to do most times of the day:

1. Sleep.

Just added a tiny new feature to “Share on Mastodon.” After a post is published, the meta box will now display a link to the corresponding Mastodon status. There’s also the possibility to forget the Mastodon URL, allowing anyone to _again_ share their post (the next time it’s updated). Fun fact: this isn’t new per se, but previously required fiddling with a hidden custom field.

New version’s not in the WordPress repo, yet. I’ll try to push it tomorrow or so.

I obviously know about FrontPage and Dreamweaver (and Flash), but I kinda went from MS Word to Notepad, and then Notepad++ and VS Code. Used to just write static HTML for the longest time. And “procedural” PHP. Loved “web standards,” back in the day, and HTML5 when it first came around. Started using WordPress only after Zeldman had made the switch. No surprise I’m not too big on “modern” web development. (I’ve never owned a Mac, either.)

Also, and I hate to say this, comparing page load times for a static site on the one hand and WordPress + a page caching plugin on the other makes little sense. In both cases, you’re loading static HTML.
