A thing I have learned about wearing 'good' headphones while working ("working") for the last two weeks: You don't hear your laptop fan screaming, so the death-whoosh and restart is that much more unexpected...

(After screenshotting it occurred to me that the OS was called "Microsoft Bob." I can make tremendous mistakes, too.)

I don't see this anywhere after a lot of fruitless searching so here:

If you're using express-formidable and you get "Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory..." try fooling with the relative path of your uploadDir. Using multer my upload path of /uploads was fine; copying that over gave me errors. I swapped things around and ended up using ${__dirname}/uploads instead.

I was right about doubles. I got the webmention script working, used the @puppyrey micro.blog account to reply to @rich_text, and the resulting reply appeared both in the conversation.js script (an internal-to-m.b thing), and in the webmentions. Next step; contemplate filtering those; also figuring out how to get webmentions on-the-fly instead of only at build-time (which I can do, for conversations; same pattern might work...).

As I mentioned here, I implemented micro.blog's conversation.js to display comments on my blog. Today I've been trying to get my head around Webmentions, and I see that "When you use Micro.blog to reply... Micro.blog will send a Webmention for that post if it is hosted outside of Micro.blog..." So if I implement WM correctly, I might get some comments 2x - in my "Conversation: " div and my "Webmentions: " div. A problem I hope to have, then solve.

(This is also a test.)

random: can you send a webmention to your own post? Probably, right? Why would it not work?

It's already so hot, I have to take a bottle of ice with me when I walk the doofus at mid-morning.
