I'm now using Git LFS for storing images on GitHub, which seems to be working well so far. I did have a few hiccups setting it up (including, ahem, rewriting the entire Git history of the repo).

Bit the bullet and finally rewired my website to use Eleventy (from 2014-era bespoke abandonware tooling based on Grunt), brought in a bunch of stuff from other places (eg. dev.to), cleaned up the design a bit. Looking forward to maybe possibly write there more often.

I'm so glad someone finally said this. The current situation is a huge mess.

The recipe calls for an additional 4 days of fermentation in this state, then it can be bottled and chilled.

Elderflower fizz update: it took longer than the estimated 48hrs for wild fermentation to kick in, but now on the fourth day the concoction is frothing vigurously. Brix reading is down to 10deg. I've strained out the flowers and lemon now.

(don't be fooled that I know what I'm talking about, but I understand one could look at the Brix reading to figure out how much of the sugar has been converted to alcohol)

Elderflower fizz update: first tiny timid bubbles forming around the 44th hour mark. Nerding out with a refractometer, getting a 11 degrees Brix, having had roughly added 325g sugar to about 2,5L water.

For the 2nd thing a friend had the video saved to an external HDD (!) so here it is:


The visual artist is Gints Apsīts, and one of the sound artists is Ramon Schneider (now Ramon de Marco).

At least I nailed the 2005-2006 aspect. 😅

OK, *finally* my bookmark archive actually surfaces something. The name of the first artist is Eduardo Recife and his website is called Misprinted Type:


The "not" part is probably my memory throwing Emigre's typeface NotCaslon into the mix:

I hope you can remind me the names of some 2005-2006-era web things the image of which I can only vaguely recreate in my head.

1. the name of an artist's website in the grungy/distressed-font aesthetic, very popular at the time; maybe starts with "not"
2. an artist whose name I could swear is Ramon Schneider (under which I get no search results) who either did interesting glitchy electronic music, or badass collage-based digital music videos, or both.

The feeling of adding a FTP remote to rclone that just works on the first try must be amazing. I imagine.
