Had to bust out the old DVD drive for my computer tonight. Good thing I kept it around. Tomorrow maybe I’ll find a ZIP disk I need to read.

The end of an era. One of my children has finally beat me in a Mario Kart circuit.

1 Year Old

Finally got around to testing the Dig Uno and WLED. Next step is replace the lights on the back deck. Then MEGA HOLIDAY lights.

Never posted any pics of the new pup. 🐶

Going to get this custom theme to work at some point…only an hour in.

Just got around to watching the last two episodes of Clone Wars. There can be no doubt that Asoka is the real hero of the whole “Skywalker” story arc, and maybe more.

Tried to use neovim for 3 months, can’t do it, going back to Emacs.

Arguing about a professional baseball player hitting a home run on a 3-0 pitch when the team has a big lead is crazy. Play to win, don’t hold back.

Assateague Island

I’ve been without internet all weekend, but got home tonight in time to catch the IndieWeb Summit demos. Fun stuff that has me excited to hack some stuff this summer.

Checked in at Hersheypark

I did not grow up in a region that had fireflies. Now every year they come out in the early summer and I sit on my porch enjoying simply watching them light up. It’s amazing!

Baseball In Baltimore

Baseball game with the boys.

Checked in at Oriole Park at Camden Yards for Toronto Blue Jays vs Baltimore Orioles. Baseball with the boys.

Baseball time


That was the best opening series in such a long time for the #Padres. This is going to be a fun season of baseball.

Fine Woodworking, the one magazine I still get a physical copy mailed to me every month is not on Apple News+, bummer.

I really enjoed that book about Tony Gywnn. I put off reading it for a long time, but I am so happy that I finally read it, such great stories about a someone who had such a big impact on me, and the city of San Diego. 📚

First shock of being a home owner today. Trimming 40 foot oak trees is not cheap.

Bushkill Falls

Bushkill Falls

We stopped at Bushkill Falls on our way home from vacation today. It was very beautiful, even if I don’t really support the idea of someone charging so much money to hike and see waterfalls. 

It would be nice to have the ability to move feeds from one category to another. Currently as far as I can tell you must delete them and add them to another category manually

Yeah. I went looking and noticed your pull request and merge after I asked. I already had it just did not pay attention when I updated. Thanks!

This the code you spoke about in this episode for visibility in Known available? I have also been thinking about ways to store private information on my site but the lack of private post support stopped that for me.

We got this guy when he was three and it’s been a great 10 years. We are going to miss him .

Smoking for 8 hours

Smoking for 8 hours

Today (the last day of school) I found out that my kids can drink chocolate milk for free if they buy lunch, but must pay an extra dollar for water. That is just crazy.

Really love the work that @cleverdevil is doing on Known, in fact I like it so much that I am using his overview page as my homepage now.

If you want to use emacsclient with the flatpak use “flatpak run –command=emacsclient org.gnu.emacs” or make that an alias in your shell profile.

With all the talk about tanking in professional sports in the US I think it's time to take a hit from Soccer/Football and add the idea of relegation for the worst performing teams. It would remove the lack of consequences for tanking and add more competition, and teams at a new or reconfigured second level.

As of today I have been married to Beth, my wonderful wife, for a decade.

I have started working on a GTK IndieWeb reader that would support posting to Micro.blog and could also act as a client, but my time is limited until this summer so it is far off.


Looking into adding dbus HostCommand support via init file or some other means.

@gnomealex I will definitely look into that. I don't like the idea of having my own copies of things like openssh and gnupg inside the flatpak, but they are critical for my workflow. Thanks!

The fact that it’s 2018 and I am seeing more spam on IRC than I have ever before seems crazy to me.

Finally a nice night to sit out and enjoy the weather.

Using org-pdfview from repos adds pdftools from the same repo and that brakes the local system build. It is easier to add this then to package make, autogen, etc that would be needed to rebuild the server to support pdf-tools from melpa.

Need to add org-pdfview to pdftools

I put my emacs flatpak in a repo on my site. I will put a stripped down version on flathub at some point, but I am still fine tuning it for what I want, then I need to work on removing the extra stuff from the package that is not needed. https://zach.oglesby.co/pages/flatpak-repo

Thinking about making an IndieWeb Reader for Linux. Its been a while since I played with GTK.

Not spring weather

@ChrisAldrich Yeah, I am still going to write it. I am just not going to spend much time thinking about things I am not interested in for the first pass.

Is there any interest in a @WithKnown exercise plugin? https://indieweb.org/exercise

It is indeed based on Jonathan's Food plugin, but I did forget to put a link to his plugin in the readme, thanks!

I put my new reading plugin for Known on github. Track your book reading IndieWeb style. I still have some work to do on it, but the basic parts work. https://github.com/zoglesby/Known-Read

It’s hurts that I have spent my career as a DBA and yet I spent an hour trying to get Aperture installed only to realize the docs said I needed a newer version of MariaDB. Always read the docs!

Patapsco State Park

4 Years after hearing @mojavelinux talk about asciidoc at FUDCon Lawrence @Fedora docs has finally moved away from Docbook. Big step forward in reducing the contributor learning curve.

Great work by @bexelbie and everyone who helped. The new @Fedora docs website is live. https://docs.fedoraproject.org/index.html

I should not have purchased that fountain pen, it is so nice to write with… hide my wallet.

.@matrixdotorg is moving forward but needs community help. Every dollar counts. https://matrix.org/blog/2017/07/19/status-update/

If you use or like the idea of @matrixdotorg think about supporting the project on Patreon.

Got my new shipment of pens today. So happy JetPens exists. Having lived in Japan during high school makes it hard to use supermarket pens.

@matrixdotorg the log is kinda large, any other way I can send it to get an extra set of eyes?

Went on vacation and my @matrixdotorg synapse service is using upgraded digitalocean droplet all the way up to 8GB and still the same, changed SYNAPSE_CACHE_FACTOR and still have issues. Offline until I figure this out.

Just watched the rocket launch at Wallops. Very cool to see in person.

Parks and Recreation may have predicted the Cubs winning the 2016 WS but all of the Windows Phones are a funny joke.
