Pinned toot

Fellow nerds: I'm starting to work on a project that involves highlighting weird and fun WP plugins.

If you have a favorite that you'd like to share, take a few seconds and let me know about it!

Honestly? I don't hate it.

In fact, I hope they keep the pastels as the default. It's rather soothing.

I wouldn't go putting a production site on it rn, but I am very interested in playing with it.

DuckDuckGo's Tracker Radar (list used in Safari's Privacy Report) has found calls to Google on 82% of all sites. Facebook scripts come second (34% of sites).

Google Analytics is the most popular third-party connection (Google owns 8 of top 10 calls).

I disable caps lock on all of my keyboards. That way I have to be *deliberately* intentional about yelling while typing.

Totally happy to loop back around on (actually) reading it — slowly and intentionally — once I get a few more titles off of my pile.

Over the weekend, I blasted through the audiobook of Jenny Odell's "How to Do Nothing" at 2X.

I enjoyed it very much. However, as it was wrapping up, I bumped the speed up a couple more fractions of an X so I could finish it before I got through the evening's dishes.

This led to the realization that maybe I'd missed the point a lil bit. 🙃🤦🏻‍♂️

COVID, isolation 

For the second time in 184 days, I went inside of a building that wasn't my home.

Even though I was in the doctor's office for _maybe_ 10 minutes — and was fully masked and goggled up — I still came directly home, stripped down in the garage, and took a Silkwood shower.

Not gonna catch my ass slipping, Rona!

Why do my dogs love basking in this gross, smoky sunlight? I don’t get it.

Fire season in California is rough. Our poor air purifiers have been running full tilt for weeks.

I once read that the average human colon holds ~2lbs of feces.

So, if my back of the napkin calculations are correct, I lost about 18lbs yesterday.

Just attempted to eat (but ended up throwing away) a protein bar that tasted like a chalky tootsie roll. 🤢

We need to get some snacks around here!

I've been meaning to rebuild my server on an old RasPi 3B+, but the one I stood up on the Zero W months ago is still working fine.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

That thing where your dog gives you a kiss on your face but then they nibble your nose a lil bit... 😍
