if anyone tells you that is dead — they’re in a bubble. Bing is our witness; the hasfeed: prefix returns sites with a feed, the feed: prefix gives a direct feed link. No.. I’m not a secret Microsoft™ agent — DuckDuckGo and others support this too ;-) 38B+ are big boy numbers.

and are a cozy combination. Out of annoyance with my flaky Internet connection I’ve paginated the rss and json feeds. Know what? After exploring various feed formats, the underlying problem seems to be incentives in feed generation tooling correctness across language ecosystems and not formats? Invalid atom, rss, and feeds are all over the net.

The nix packages collection has a neat library repository. A small nudge can make it completely standalone. Basically it allows experimenting quickly with configuration patterns for custom stuff without an expensive evaluation.

There’s this crow outside that insists on plucking coconuts. A while back I was in a coconut tree (don’t ask), and there it was — a crow setting up its nest. I assisted by creating more space and since then it’s been obsessed with plucking coconuts. It’s dropping young and old ones faster than I’m willing to deal with them. 4 in the last two hours..

compilation is fun to watch. Here’s what hugo’s --debug output for this blog looks like right now. Rendering takes about 25 seconds on an old laptop. The linearity is easy to see, but that’s the least of my problems ;-)

Kiwi Browser (download) is a Chromium derivative on Android that can directly expose the built–in dev tools on device. Remote debugging is my preference, but it makes quick web development a complete disaster debugging on Chrome for Android just a touch easier.

There’s an old article from the developer of NetNewsWire ( reader) that questions the idea of the unread count. You can’t read all the unread — so why entertain a time consuming mythos around that number?

It applies everywhere — What narratives might people create around the programming language % numbers on GitHub? Do they waste time thinking/fretting about their mythos? Fun to think about.

Larnyx/Rhasspy is an excellent/fast offline text to speech program. There’s approximately 50 voice samples.

It would be trivial to turn this into an that reads articles/posts, but it’s on Python so packaging it “directly” (there’s a docker container) is way harder than actually using it.
