Meena video interviewed my dad this weekend. The intent was to document his thoughts and perspectives of the years gone by and to get glimpses of his generation. We learnt so many interesting things about our family that we wouldn’t have known if we hadn’t done this. An oral history of ... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/07/25/july-25-2021-1602/

While walking someone through a few features of Trilium notes, I realized the Trilium notes electron app is really good! Besides the offline-first feature it provides, it also lets me have an additional backup of the notes. And then I also figured, I did have to tweak the volume configu... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/06/22/trilium-notes-electron/
Just published Appa’s first book – ‘Smell of the Soil’ in print format. This has been on his (and my) ‘to-do’ list for a while now. We did publish the digital version in December 2017 and looking back makes me wonder why we didn’t publish the print version earlier!
It’s been a fe... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/06/22/smell-of-the-soil/
@ndanes I’ve had absolutely zero issues using [nextcloudpi](https://ownyourbits.com/nextcloudpi/#supported_systems). Silently been chugging along for a few years now with auto-updates and close to zero manual intervention. For the maps alternative, I’ve had my eyes on [Mag... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/06/13/maps-and-files/

IndieForums looks nice. Seems like it might be a good catalyst for some blogchains and hyperconversations.
It just struck me today how much I love writing crude, rewarding code. The type that is just sufficient to get the job done and that which ‘scratches your itch’ and might probably be useful for someone else too.
I am not a software developer. Never been one. My day job is far, far from... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/05/29/may-28-2021-2016/
This is fascinating @petervangeit ! Wasn’t aware of SOI Maps. Thanks for sharing

Tweaked this setup further to make it a bit more seamless. I used a different but more reliable script to fetch the activity json files and setup a cron job to run twice every week. Next-up: 01. Make the parsing and data display theme agnostic. 02. Add a quick link to publish individual... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/05/12/garmin-plugin/

Earlier this week, I came across this nifty python tool that lets you backup all your garmin data from the Garmin-Connect platform. I wrote a crude WordPress plugin to parse the json files over and display the data on my website here. The tool is kind of unstable because it essentially ... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/05/08/may-7-2021-1431/
Switched over to consuming Twitter via RSS feeds. For now I am using Yarns on WP to collect the feeds and the Indigenous app / Monocle-web social reader to read/interact with tweets. With this setup, I get to stay clear of the tracking and ads [Last time I checked uBlock Origin blocked ... https://srikanthperinkulam.com/2021/04/30/yarns/
