I've been having so much trouble combining my Fastmail and Outlook calendars because Outlook doesn't support CalDAV, but today I found Owl for Exchange add-on for Thunderbird (https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/addon/owl-for-exchange/)! It's a paid add-on, but it works as advertised. It's really nice to finally have everything in one place. 😌
Finished listening to Broad Band. I thought it was inspiring to learn about the women who were fundamental in building the world of computing, but it was also frustrating to hear how the same women were pushed out and ignored at every turn.
I wish I had learned about these amazing people growing up. #reading
🍤 Made salmon and shrimp with coconut milk last night. It's really easy to make, and I put up the recipe on my website: https://jagtalon.com/salmon-and-shrimp-in-coconut-milk-recipe/
✏️ Added a "Notes" section to my blog. I'm finding that there are things that I'd like to share but don't quite fit the blog format. I'm slowly working on it, but I'm really enjoying filling out this part of my website. https://jagtalon.com/notes/
Wrote a bit about my tiny file server: https://jagtalon.com/2021/03/19/tiny-file-server/. I really love how simple and minimalist it is! 📦
I knew that CSS can style inline SVG that's actually in the page, but I didn't know that CSS could be embedded within the SVG itself!
I wanted to enable animations in an SVG without needing to add any CSS to the page. It works even through an <img> tag!
I've been using NextCloud to send files to people from time to time, but I realized that I don't really need all the features that it offers. I've been thinking about going with something simpler, so https://send.jagtalon.com/ is what came out of it. 📬️
It's basically just:
- httpd for serving files
- sftp for uploading files
Started taking Introduction to Accessibility by W3C (https://www.edx.org/course/web-accessibility-introduction), and I'm learning a bunch! The instructors have disabilities themselves, so I like that I get to see them use assistive technologies while teaching.
I'm also reading the excellent Accessibility for Everyone book (https://abookapart.com/products/accessibility-for-everyone) from @laura. It's been helpful for me to see markup and code examples to understand things better.
I’m trying out OpenBSD on @OpenBSDAms to see if I can use it to host static websites (I’m thinking I could create a dedicated page for my generative art). I find the minimalist philosophy of the OS attractive, so I’m enjoying learning about the system.
While setting up I found that my Fish shell plugins weren’t working properly, so I sent a really simple patch to Fisher today to fix that: https://github.com/jorgebucaran/fisher/pull/665 🎉
I’m grateful that I got to visit my family this weekend. I haven’t seen them in over a year, so I’m glad that I was able to spend some time with them.
This is the view from my parent's deck. It's a good change of scenery.
Currently trying out a window manager called TidyTabs (Windows-only), and I'm really enjoying it. I love how related apps visually stick together and follow each other around. I'm finding that using this makes more sense in my head than using virtual desktops--I feel like grouping windows together is a more natural workflow for me.
The best feature, though? I can right click and close all the apps in a group at once when I'm done with them. 😌
