@navalang That would be owning your own domain and using building blocks, at least as a start.

@CharlesCMann Bad enough having a Twitter thread as the canonical source for a good point, but when the original tweet has been deleted that makes it even worse. I don't want to attribute bad faith to @jasonhickel, but what else can I do?

On second thoughts, maybe the reason my Aeropress plunger has never slipped is that I brew upside down. So the water is heating the rubber while the grounds are brewing. And the rubber expands more than the plastic of the cylinder.

I'm perfectly happy that Scott Nesbitt decided to change the backend of his interesting site The Plain Text Project. But this seems like a slap to his readers: "if you've bookmarked something you've read in this space, you'll need to update the bookmark by adding articles/ to the URL." A perfect case for a very simple rewrite rule.

Interesting tip if your Aeropress is slipping, to expand the plunger's rubber while contracting the tube. Maybe I'm just not an adequate Aeropress user, but mine shows no slippage at all. And I'm almost through my third pack of filter papers.

What's so very strange about reading this post for me, is that the first photograph was taken less than 1 km from where I grew up. Not that it looked much like that back then, apart from the railway bridge.

@isellsoap I know that @chrisaldrich was involved in doing Webmention and other IndieWeb things with his local paper; see https://boffosocko.com/2018/05/29/indieweb-ifying-coloradoboulevard-net/

@PhotoJazzy This an awful story to read, but I thank you for sharing it.

That would be a newsletter, right?

In the olden days, these sincere email replies to content strategists and the like would have been an instant success as a book. Doubly so if a reply ever arrived.
