Funny thing. Since I’ve switched to SimplePie, I see a lot more “image previews,” thanks the `enclosure` tag. Now, if only I could get it to parse `media:content` …

Tired: Blog software that generates RSS feeds from your Web pages.

Not-so-pro tip: in your RSS feeds, do not name titleless notes “No Title,” but leave out the `title` tag altogether.

Recently watched the Fear Street trilogy, Turbo Kid, and La Gomera (The Whistlers), and now I’m wondering if I should revisit, or clarify, my “rating system,” which goes up to four stars. One star would be “interesting,” two stars “entertaining,” three stars very good and four almost impossibly awesome. As for the films above, I’d probably give them ~~one or~~ two stars each, like so: ★★☆☆. ~~(Should probably drop that fourth star, too, and not be such an a—hole.)~~

Switching between the Parsedown Extra and Markdown Extra libraries for PHP. One doesn’t convert `> ` to `blockquote` inside `

Incredibly thorough history. I love stuff like this.

Because Zeldman had made the switch.

In my own "notes," I'll sometimes have a `u-photo` sit next to `e-content`, and this way it'll still be shown okay. Posts where a `u-photo` is part of `e-content`, though, will be shown exactly as on the web page itself.

Think I may have found something. Currently _not_ stripping any images or video, i.e., leaving photo posts intact and displaying them as such. Then underneath, in a separate gallery of sorts, I display only those (`u-*`) images that aren't already in the post.

Should require only a minor change to a library like X-Ray, which I've already (quite extensively), uhm, "refactored," anyway.

"Your client doesn't support photo posts? Reviews? Replies? Location posts? No worries, we'll make sure it can still show them as simple notes/articles! Same way we treat RSS/Atom entries!"

Now _that_ I would like, but it's not how microformats parsers/Microsub aggregators work.
