Sad to learn that James Randi, magician and stage artist devoted to debunking the paranormal, dies at 92 - The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/james-randi-magician-and-stage-artist-devoted-to-deb...

I had the honour to know and work with the Amazing Randi for a while in the 1970s and 1980s, and it was always fun.

Started to install tailwindcss rather than rely on the full stylesheet via CDN, and all I can say is, "so far, so good". Forced by actual work to take it slowly, which is probably a good thing.

It can be so hard to debug IndieWeb problems when they arise in Known. For now, this should be a webmention of the linked post, because Chris Aldrich reported a problem. But even if this works, I may need to go outside this installation to test properly. Or, perhaps, try webmention.rocks.

Test reply because @chrisaldrich was getting an error. Might be OK with reply but not webmention, so will test that next.
