Spent the day in Sikes, LA (population 121). A day of family, frisbee, and food.

My mom completed her final round of chemo today. She dominated the whole process like a true champion.

Matt, Mom, Kalena smile at camera.

Yes, Tiny Theme has built in support for Micro.blog’s new comment reply feature. Was added less than 10 minutes after it was announced. Because why not?

For people using Microblog’s Wavelength app, what are you using for audio input? @manton

If you use Todoist and Safari (macOS), have you been able to get links added from Safari → Todoist? The extension claims to handle it, but it has never worked for me. Todoist shortcuts don’t work on macOS unless you go through the API. Perhaps that’s the only way?

Auditing Our Non-Profit's Software

I’ve been in charge of auditing my non-profit team’s software use and changing directions where we need. With some software, I have lots of leeway, with others there’s none. But it looks like we’re going to be using this set of products going forward: Quickbooks (existing), ProtonMail (from Google Workspace), DropBox (from Google Drive & Docusign), Notion (existing but consolidating lots of stuff), Todoist (from a white board).

Some of our goals in doing this are increasing privacy & security, modernization, lowering costs, and future proofing. It’s not locked in stone as of yet (still awaiting some communication from a couple of the companies), but it looks to be headed that way.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mom and Kids

What is the best app/service for a team wiki? Collaboration is a must. We’ve previously used Notion and Craft. Any good alternatives?

I’m looking for a calendar solution that does all of this well: Personal Calendars, Staff Calendar, Public Facing Calendar. One service, one app. Any suggestions?

I’m addicted to milkshakes. Have been since I was a kid. I’m sure part of it is related to good memories, but there is not much bad in life that a good milkshake can’t cure.

I came home to Lego day apparently. My son is doing a new House Lego, my daughter is doing a Sonic one, and my wife is working on a Kingfisher. Also in the photo is a Lego chess board.

Finished reading: Masters of the Air MTI by Donald L. Miller 📚

I wanted to read this after watching Masters of the Air, and I enjoyed it immensely. It does get into bomber warfare philosophy/morality, but manages to do it with an even hand. I would’ve loved to meet those incredible men and women.

Getting back into the swing of things after a family vacation to catch some Braves games. I always have a little trouble focusing for the first day or two after a trip. Maybe that means all vacations should be longer?

Took a few vacation days with the family to catch the Braves for 3 in Houston. All wins!

Tiny Theme 2.7.7 now has broader support for things like asides, alerts, and notes within your content. See examples. It also includes CSS variable support for them to allow easy customization.

I’ll give a nickel to anyone who can find me an in-stock Fujifilm X100V or X100VI without the insane markup.

Good things from @lmika for those of you who would like a sidebar for the blogroll in Tiny Theme.

Release version 1.1.1 of Sidebar for Tiny Theme. You’ll need to upgrade Tiny Theme to version 2.7.4 or later to use it, but the good news is that it’s no longer replacing any templates of Tiny Theme itself. It’s all now working with hooks, which is a much nicer way of doing things.

It’s a couple generations old, but I grabbed a lightly used Fujifilm X100F. As a beginner-ish, it’s such an appealing camera. I’m still learning my way around it and playing with settings/recipes, but I can definitely see myself using it often.

I’ve enjoyed using Kagi for search, but it’s not quite worth the subscription price for me yet. I found myself needing other search engines just enough for it to be annoying. I’m sure it’ll improve over time and I look forward to giving it another chance in the future.
