I love SVG but sometimes it makes sense to use bitmaps. I exported an SVG and it was >200kb. The same as a 2X png: 32kb.

Just started the process of moving over to @mastohost. Looking forward to being on 🚀

Just think: when Slack is down, your bosses can't read your DMs like the *good folks* at Slack enabled them to.

I think working with CMSs is actually on of my least favourite things to do in web. So slow and so frustrating.

I'm much happier in Jekyll or Eleventy land.

Vanilla is now more expensive per ounce than silver ( So when you hear "Vanilla JavaScript" think "something increasingly rare which should be treasured"!

Before I use ImgIX as an image CDN for my stuff, are they doing anything sketchy that I need to know about?

I like using them at work because you can carry on hosting your own images, rather than push out to AWS or whatnot.


A question to go with this cat. How y’all posting images? Sticking a note on your site? I don’t want to add images to Instagram anymore.

@heydon Hey! I've been trying to find a link to the generative art stuff you did recently and can't find it. Can you link me up?

Hey Mastodon. I know I have like, 4 actual followers on here or something, but maybe somebody will see me on the timeline.

I could really use some philanthropy right about now. I'm 2 years and 60 job interviews down with a traumatic brain injury... I'm trying to create a source of income for my family by expanding my Twitch channel.

Please consider kicking in, or passing it on if you would. Thanks for looking. ❤️

Bad CSS pun:

`text-align: justify;` is rarely justified.

I’m so sorry, I’ll grab my coat.

Standup: reworking with @zachleat's excellent static site generator 🚀

I forgot about this place too!

I think I might mix adding content directly in here and pushing the notes content up like @adactio does on Twitter etc. I like that idea a lot.

Once transferring a profile is easier, I'd like to host my own Mastodon instance too.

I'm going to start rebuilding my website tonight. It's a hot mess at the moment and isn't very easy to modify content.

I'm coming up with a bit of a "strategy" for my own content that looks a bit like this:

- Long form posts under '/wrote' and '/writing'
- Aggregated links to writing like the current site
- Short notes and links
- Possibly images

All of this stuff will have their own RSS feeds too.

I think I might write up on this some more.
