My current favourite thing is screencasts with hilariously over the top soundtracks. Never has writing a netlify function in Vim and deploying a hello world endpoint seemed so cool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJx4PQEbH0M
Signed up for https://www.coursera.org/learn/programming-languages . Watched the intro, and can't remember feeling so hyped about an MOOC.
"There's something deeply artistic and elegant in
the way programming languages fit together and I want you to stretch your mind, and
I want you to look at this course as a fresh way to look about software.
A fresh way to think about programming that you've never thought about before.
We're going to make you uncomfortable.
We're going to do things in a strange way."
Quite a claim.
Really happy for the exercise clause. My streak hits 3 years in less than a month and I was about to have to figure out how many laps of our tiny yard I’d have to run. #lockdownuk

I did a mini-retrospective of my year in running: https://breakfastdinnertea.co.uk/2020/01/my-2019-year-in-running/
Has anyone got #Webmention working with Mastodon & WordPress?
I'm using Bridgy and I can see it sending mentions, but they never seem to appear on my moderation page.
Busy weekend ahoy - Anfield tonight, to watch the mighty #ncfc return to the premier league. Marple Beer Run tomorrow, to run as fast as I can without vomiting.
and thinking about it, two things are obviously missing from everything open and indieweb out there atm - tags and the focusing/surfacing of creative commons content.
A real thrill I had early on in the mid/late 2000s was uploading some relatively inane image, say a cute donkey, only to vanity search my name later on and discover it used in some random local US newspaper.
upon further digging, I've registered for the pixelfed beta instance. Very much not for me. Too streamy, no real organisation (I'd love tags, but albums would be fine), privacy options too simple - very much attracting the instagram rather than me. Might hack together a piwiki server in the interim. Much rather that than give it all over to yet another cloud company.
Anyone #selfhosting / #federating their own photos? I have 4gb downloaded from flickr and not really sure what to do with them. The two leading choices seem to be #piwigo (I like that it's extensible, but feels pretty heavyweight/wordpressy, no #activitypub) and #pixelfed (looks modern, but a bit too instagrammy, and relatively "young").
Would love to hear others' experiences. (excuse the tagspam, throwing stuff at a wall here :D)
