Looking for the bright side. Gold medallion trees in bloom.

“certainly individuals at higher risk should be masking...”

No, everyone should be, Director, even by your community levels metric.

So clear. It sounds like Bill Gates is right in the room when he talks to me.

Double boosted. I can now see an aura around people who have COVID.

“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still, life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happens better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb.”

Looks like it's been a longstanding, intermittent issue. I added the Bridgy log for this error to the github issue: https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/237

Wow, the Hitachi Magic Wand was a lot bigger back then.

I tried sending again with the form and got the general error "There has been a critical error on this website."

This is the post I'm trying to send in case you want to debug or try re-sending the webmention: https://gregorlove.com/2022/05/open-mentions-is-an-interesting/

No worries! I had another Webmention issue sending to both your site and @openmentions. I tagged you in a GitHub issue.

If you’re interested, IndieWeb has a WordPress chat channel with a helpful group of people, including the plugin authors: indieweb.org/discuss

@openmentions: I got a PHP Fatal TypeError trying to submit a link using the form on https://openmentions.com/special/about/. A null value was passed to count() in the Semantic Linkbacks plugin.

Open Mentions is an interesting addition in the category of IndieWeb aggregators that use Webmention. I wonder if microformats2 could be used to include the machine-readable metadata, especially since Matt’s thoughts noted “this should reflect the information that the user sees on-page.”

Some other interesting sites like this are indieweb.xyz and indieforums.net.

Hi, Matt! It has been several years but I remember you from back in the Nucleus CMS days. Lovely to see you getting into indieweb. I have really enjoyed that community and the cool things they’re doing! Have you joined any of their virtual meetups like Homebrew Website Club?

David Shanske was awarded the First Time Eating an Ear of Corn at Homebrew Website Club badge on May 18, 2022.

Context: pretty self-explanatory. :) When David said it was the first time he had eaten an ear of corn at Homebrew Website Club, I said I would make the badge for him. I used https://badge.design/ to throw this together.

I drink 2–3 cups of coffee a day.
