So I’m editing the indieweb wiki and suddenly I lost the game. Good job, Ben. Nowhere is safe!

An odd thing to me about the San Diego library is how frequently you have to renew the card — every two years, I think. I mostly check out e-books and since they use third-party apps, the apps apparently don’t check if your card is still active. I only found out my card expired when I logged in to look up a print book.

My friend Laurie is looking for new work. She has experience as a field interviewer, illustrator, writing consultant, and personal assistant. Looking in Indiana or for remote work.

Please help boost or get in touch with her on LinkedIn if you know of anything!

That Reddit guy’s song would probably actually work for R2.

If you’re not already familiar with the context... I’m sorry. XD

My oven is fixed now which means I can make cinnamon rolls tomorrow! From the tube, not homemade, but still — cinnamon rolls!

There’s going to be a Tron 3 with Jared Leto. It’s Tronin’ time!

I was thinking only instances that someone had followed me from would have the local cache of my profile. Is it also on instances I have followed someone on? If so, I think followers-only seems like a good start.

Support profile updates

It would be nice if BF could send profile update activities when h-card bio, photo, and link(s) change. I recently changed the h-card on my homepage and instances aware of me prior to that still have my old photo. You mentioned in chat that BF would need to poll for updates. I also wonder if an on-demand option could work via a webmention trigger? I have not thought through this in-depth, but maybe microformats like:

Latest stable release?

I have been using the latest release via Composer (2.1.0) in some projects pretty smoothly (thanks!), but I noticed there are newer branches 3.x and 4.x here. What is the latest stable branch and will there be a new Composer release for it? Presuming those branches are stable, is there documentation for migrating from 2.x?

★★★★★ Stories of Your Life and Others

Mike McHargue recommended this book on his podcast years ago and I didn’t realize until I checked it out that the title short story was adapted into the film Arrival, which is one of my favorites. Based on that, I had high hopes of it being a good collection and it did not disappoint. Highly recommended — both the film and this collection.

Finished reading: Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang (ISBN 9781931520898)

I updated my homepage to show the latest photo post:

There was some strong bisexual lighting at the Silversun Pickups concert last fall.
