I've seen many opinions about this new Safari tab thing and didn't know what was happening because I don't frequently use that browser. Opened today for the first time in ages. That is... ah... something.

today's little project - a filter (2 really) for my blog that allows me to tag something noWeb or noRss and have that post only appear in the RSS feed or only on my site. (Using the "tags" concept as a category, not a tumblr-teen goof, contra my post this morning.)

The thing about "tags" and DIY blogging is that all the tools treat "tags" like "categories," so you'd expect to have 1, or a handful. "post" or "photo" or whathaveyou. But I treat "tags" like a teen on tumblr. hundreds of nonsense non-sequiturs, follow-on jokes from the post text, and so on... the giant blob of data that Eleventy puts together when it builds my blog is beyond enormous, because all those 100s of values end up on all those 100s of posts.... It still builds pretty fast though, so I guess it's fine?

If I don't syndicate elsewhere, doesn't that make this blog a POS? πŸ˜†

This self-imposed lockdown has aged me to the point that I have now twice walked by* my oldest local pal with him giving me the polite-nod-to-a-stranger head bob. I'm saving these incidents up for the next time we all go out for a meal (though I considered texting him right there in the street). I don't know if it's the new lines on my face or the ridiculous ponytail, or both. πŸ˜†

Friend says "I want to sell my artwork on a site that looks like one of these..." and I can tell instantly that all 3 of her inspirations are built on Squarespace. So after months/years of ignoring their ads, I finally opened an account and started mucking around in their template tools. Must admit, they're pretty slick.

This morning's first-cup-of-coffee project: Cancel VPN service in the news lately, uninstall everywhere.

Later: Figure out how to use Tailscale to serve a similar purpose; debug networking problems in Ubuntu (caused by VPN removal?)
