Also in this update for Tiny Theme is improved styling for the included newsletter theme.

By far, the most requested feature for Tiny Theme was the ability to easily change the browser theme color. I’ve now added the ability to do that via a plugin. First, update Tiny Theme to the latest version. Then install the new browser color plugin from the directory and choose your colors.

Pushed out an update to Tiny Theme today with a few bug fixes and some styling support for @sod’s Search Space plugin. That clears out the reported bugs for it, and it should open up room for more advanced features in the next couple weeks.

I’m currently reading The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles. His novels always have a very distinct style, and this one is no different. I’m 60% through it (thanks, Kindle progress tracker thing), so it’s time to start looking for what comes next. Any suggestions?

Today is our 10 year wedding anniversary. From a blind date to countless trips to lots of laughs to 2 perfect kids and everything in between, it’s been an amazing ride. May the next 10 be even better!

If you’re a Tiny Theme user and need a BlueSky invite, let me know.

I have a watch (Seiko SSK003) with a scratched crystal. Anyone know of a good place to have the crystal replaced (possibly upgraded)?

Well, that was easy. Tiny Theme now includes a matching newsletter template. This requires a Premium subscription. It’s very basic due to the complex nature of styling email, but it matches the out-of-box look of Tiny. If you’ve customized Tiny, you may also want to customize the included newsletter template to match. And it does work with the new “Intro” feature. I’m considering this a beta feature for now; please report any issues back to me.

In addition, I’ve also added special CSS classes that will allow you to individually style each link in your navigation bar. Want one nav link to have a different color background? Easy! So many cool possibilities. The update is available on your Plug-Ins page now.

Looks like newsletters are getting an upgrade on thanks to @manton. For those who use Tiny Theme, a matching newsletter template/styling will be added very soon.

I grabbed a new domain (simple redirect) for Tiny Theme for I’ve been happy with what I’ve seen others do with the theme, so I thought why not? I like the domain too:

Where Have I Been

I decided to jump on the trend of listing places visited. For my list, I’m limiting it to locations where I spent meaningful time (ex. no airport only stops).

I’ve spent way more time than I care to admit in Frankfurt, Germany (Interpol mixup, for real); London, England; and Seattle, Washington (USA). But they were all limited to airport adventures.

Another day with family, baseball, trampolines, and the outdoors.

A little bit of front yard catch for the girls.

A new tree for the yard. Planting in crocs. Being the heavier of the two of us, I ended up doing the digging. To her disappointment.

The building next to my office has been testing their fire alarm for two days. So that’s been pleasant.

If you have a Drafts Action, a good Shortcut you use, or any other specific automation/script, let me know. Interested to see what’s out there.

Does anyone use a self-hosted (or at least custom domain-ed) image sharing service? Something similar to Imgur, perhaps?

What apps are you using for each service? Mine are:

  • Official App
  • Bluesky: Official App & Ivory
  • Mastodon: Ivory
  • Reddit: Official App

She could spend her entire lifetime in a backyard garden. It is, without a doubt, something that β€œsparks joy.” I’m thinking it’s time to add some more raised beds like she’s been asking.

A Blue Bell and Dr. Pepper collab? Be still, my Texan heart.
