I am now appropriately dressed, I can be seen in public. I got some new Penn State t-shirts today so now I can go out in public looking like a local. I’m not sure how well this selfie came out but if it’s a good one I’ll start using it as a profile picture. First selfie of 2019. I now have the perfect disguise for the area. Always and forever an Ohio State fan though. Go Bucks!

I’m taking the new #Indieweb WordPress by @pfefferle and man, this is really, really nice. I haven’t played with all the options yet but if you want to take the theme for a spin you can get it from GitHub. I’ll write more about it once I’m done putting it through its paces. More Indieweb themes is always better, more accessible themes is even better than that. This one is made of semantic HTML, Microformats, Microformats 2, and schema data. I haven’t explored the templates yet but it has full post kinds and post formats support as well.

I saw this pop up on a Facebook page I USED to follow. Seriously? They have nothing better to do than to make fun of women?
This is one of the few reasons it's so important for me to become a developer.

Hey I'm trying to make rent happen and after this work week, will need anywhere from $500 - $700 after some previous setbacks. And if you can't donate, can you please boost this?

Thanks to everyone who helped make the first #CopyleftConf a success; the #FOSDEM video team, speakers, volunteers and of course, attendees!! Please let us know what we can do to make next year even better.

Re-sharing because it was a good commercial showcasing good people (who have likely kicked my but online) and good tech.

It’s time to clip my nails again because they’re getting in the way of typing. Also, today is my birthday which means I can do whatever I want. I have ten beers left, and since it’s my birthday I’m going to start drinking them by 9AM simply because I feel like it, and if stuff gets done... arush.io/94417-2/
