we're thinking about doing our honeymoon in London. any recommendations for areas to stay in, things to do and see and maybe what season or month is best for visiting?

wedding invites arrived from the printer yesterday and they're off to people now :) exciting!

I just wrote the most garbage essay maybe ever but I'm also trying to not give a 100% to every uni course. I guess it's on par with that.

Hi, I am Heydon. I am named after the village Heydon in Norfolk but was not conceived there.

I am a web interface designer, frontend dev consultant, and technical writer for design systems. You may have read one of my books or learned algorithmic CSS from every-layout.dev. I write, narrate, and soundtrack videos about the web here: briefs.video.

I also record antifascist sludge/garage punk/blues/doom metal as Death Garage (deathgarage.bandcamp.com/).

I do co-own a six string bass with my brother but quickly learned that it's harder to learn with so I've not touched it in ages :D

I haven't touched a bass in over 12 years and even back then I was garbage. I don't know how to play any instrument.

For my 30th I decided to buy an amp and a cheap bass. It sat unused for 6 months, I had taken maybe an hour or two to play it but not much anyways.

A few days ago I bought Rocksmith, downloaded a few custom tracks to it and I've both played more over the weekend than I've ever before and I'm also not too bad at it either. It's been fun, my fingers are on blisters hah

Prynhawn! Sami dw i. I'm a 30 year old creative and technological person from Finland. I have ADHD, sleep apnea and a shitty health in general.

I like studying languages, making music, art, programming and generally tinkering with a bit of this and that. I'm a full time student (information systems) and work part time as a consultant.

I'm kinda like a shitty version of the Renaissance man. Pleased to meet you all!

So, maybe now is finally the time I cut all ties with Twitter and move my online activities elsewhere. The indie web and federated platforms look better and better all the time.

My mate setup a jcore / breakcore / lolicore label and released two of my tunes as well. Check them out! rdctd.bandcamp.com/releases

Look for ALBATR55 to find yours truly :)

Maybe a boolean in the YAML liek "processed: no" makes the post gets processed and the boolean gets flipped after that?

Could @zachleat@twitter.com @MikeRiethmuller@twitter.com @heydonworks@twitter.com or someone maybe help? Ideally, the posts could be made with a CMS and it'd require the user to attach a file and filling out a few fields because the use case is for lesser technically inclined.

Show thread

Each file would be added to a specific folder, the user would make a new post and fill in some YAML stuff and linking the file. Then when running build, I'd analyze the specific file and generate some json and images with nodejs based on the file and adding it to the post/YAML

Show thread

Basically, I'd want to use 11ty to process and serve files. The issue I'm having is that all of the files needs to be analyzed once and some metadata needs to be generated for each file, but not every build. Is there some type of process (like incremental builds) that could help

Hey @eleven_ty@twitter.com people and experts. I have an idea for an open source tool but I'm having an issue with how to tackle something specific.

The past few years have definitely made me into a technophobic luddite. I think that in the future, we'll talk about social media as one of the modern plagues of civilization.

We can thank capitalism and corporate greed for that.

So, if you can't find me online, I'm most likely taking some me-time. You can always teach me on my website and email, but I'll stop reading Twitter, Facebook etc. For those who havet checked my bio, it's just httpster.io and my email is my first name @ website.

I don't draw a direct parallel between the current heat waves and extreme weather with climate change, but I don't debunk it either. But I have to either start muting posts online or remove myself from the platforms as the (warranted) fear mongering only causes me harm.

Show thread

If I'm not selfish in this regard, I would only end up being (more of) a burden to society, I have to focus on myself.
