I think I saw an ant the other night.

Made it downtown. This night mode is really something.

Walking towards downtown.

There’s more park beyond the fence.

Strolling around Downtown Galveston. Saw the US National Bank.

I Read a Book the Other Day

And I realized it was the first book I’ve read in a number of years. To be more precise, it was the first physical book I’ve read in years. Most of my book consumption has been on Audible (which some people tell me is not reading) and Kindle. If I had to guess, I’d say 2/3 or maybe ¾ of the books I’ve read in the past few years have been audiobooks.

I don’t know if reading a physical book makes a difference in the long run but it did feel like a familiar yet something of an out of time experience. Anyways, I’ve heard 2 audiobooks since then. It’s just so hard to beat the convenience of listening to a book while doing chores or working out.

📷 Visited Old Town Spring this morning before most shops opened. It was a beautiful morning in a cool little town center.

Right around the corner, walking around right before sundown.

The weekend is starting off on the right foot.

Is this thing on?

At least I can still see downtown from an angle.

Looking for resources to learn Javascript. So far I’ve been reading up on MDN and w3schools then trying to deconstruct small scripts in Drafts and Scriptable. It’s a fun project to do on my spare time.

A quick snap before the light turns green.

🙌 Excited about the Jordan Peele Twilight Zone reboot. The trailer does not disappoint.

I am missing a favicon. The Marfa theme used to make one from my profile avatar. I need to figure out how to make that happen in Arabica.

I got a new MacBook Air and it’s nice (8.5/10) but, even though I know the butterfly keyboard is supposed to be better than previous generations, I am terrified at the thought of a crumb, fuzz, or random hair getting in there. 😕

Does anyone have an automator script for posting to Micro.blog from a Mac? I’m looking for something similar to this script for drafts on iOS. I thought I would ask before trying to adapt the iOS script.

Center Your Photo Index

Sometimes the simplest solution is easily overlooked.

Adding style="text-align: center" inline to the microgram photos page will center the grid. Here is the full snippet which finally worked for me:

<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="https://microgram.cleverdevil.io/css" />

<div id="microgram" style="text-align: center">
  loading ...

<script src="https://microgram.cleverdevil.io/js"></script>

I spent an embarrasingly long amount of time trying to center the grid using the custom CSS. I even thought I may have to learn python1 when I looked at the microgram repo. It took me a long time to even think of trying to change the style inline but it works. You can see it on my photos page.

  1. I should actually look into learning python sooner rather than later. [return]

Also, thank you @amit for a great write up on moving to Hugo. It’s an awesome intro to Hugo in action.

Has anyone else spent all their free time looking into theme customization options for Micro.blog? The latest update has really opened the floodgates for me. So much to tinker with. 🙌

Watched both Fyre Festival documentaries this weekend. What a dumpster fire! That said, I think the Hulu doc edged out the Netflix one for me — I expected the opposite. Was the Netflix doc produced by the social media marketing team (fuckjerry) of the actual festival?

I subscribed to the excellent Drafts app by @agiletortoise. Drafts is full of features (some beyond me), but if I’m being honest, I subbed so I can change the theme. I don’t know why but it’s sometimes easier to justify paying for cosmetic features as opposed to actual features.

Trump ally Roger Stone arrested on seven charges in Mueller inquiry — The Guardian — arrested in the middle of the night like a common criminal. It’s about time.

More green while on a walk outside. It’s a good way to pretend that it’s not winter. OK, I will admit, it’s not really winter here but the cold still inhibits taking walks so I look for a few images to capture.

Sure it’s raining but it’s not bad enough to stop me from going out for a walk.
