I like .

And I want to have it accessible from within and updated via .

I don't still have that working but here's the plan.

1. Develop an application in that interacts with Todoist API. [this is now underway:]

2. Interface that Nim application with Emacs. I don't have that either, but I got an experiment of Nim-Emacs interface working in

There are multiple aspects to "Indiewebifying" your site.

@kevinmarks: Correct me where I am wrong below.

1. : You have a website be *you*, YOUR identity. That's where rel=me comes in. For lazy folks like me, I identify myself and link that to my GitHub profile.

2. : This makes your web pages parseable by the Webmention endpoints (like, that heroku app, etc.)

> Sadly, you'll need some kind of server-side dynamic rendering to show your webmentions. This will be a problem when you use a static website generator and refuse to add any kind of client-side JavaScript.

I know neither PHP nor JS. So I thought that Webmentions is no-go for me.

But I was able to make it work on my static site deployed over . See the attached image for my flow :D

Is there any #emacs or #org-mode user that analyzes the clocks with something more complex than the clock report? I'm triying to see what I can do with this information.

@jrss for me, the ox-hugo exporter was a game changer. Suddenly sub-trees in arbitrary org files became places to keep track of blog content with close-to one-click publishing.

Son: Dad what's the difference between a meteor, asteroid, comet, etc.

Dad: Uhh.. I am not exactly sure .. let me look up.

This might be an ignorant question, but how is it true that #nim is *both* compiled to C *and* garbage collected? I would have thought that anything that's compiled to C would need to run without GC…unless nim compiles its runtime into C as well? But if it does that, how does it manage to have such small binary sizes?

#til: there is pdf annotations. and I can write a pdf annotation via #emacs with #pdftools.

the overlay annotation icon (how did they do that?) on the pdf also looks nice.

- Build a simple web app
- It's done! Oh, wait, I should add a README
- Ok, released!

- Build a simple CLI
- It's done! Oh, wait, I should add a README
- Oh, wait, I should have built-in `--help` info
- Oh, I guess I should really have a man(1) page
- Oh, and shell completions would be nice…
- Oh, and if I've got a man page and completion scripts, I guess I should have a makefile
- So I guess I should update the README with installation instructions…
- What was I doing, again?

Finished reading#Endurance. Wow, what a book! It's impossible to fathom how Sir Ernest Shackleton took certain decisions. Many decisions were like picking between a rock and the hard place: hiking 33 old miles in rugged uncharted terrain or 130 miles going around the island in an impossible to navigate lifeboat. He picked the hiking option and made it. This was in 1916.

Why would a wind going north risk the sail boat to go south? I thought that the sail boat would naturally go *in* the direction of wind. - 2/2

Not having knowledge, I cannot understand this excerpt from the book :

> About noon a raw and penetrating mistlike rain began to fall, and the wind slowly started to move around toward the north—dead ahead. They were now perhaps 150 miles north of Elephant Island and still well within the zone where they might encounter ice. Thus they could not afford to be blown a single mile to the south - 1/2

Need to now enter the world of at work. As some of you might know, I am a big fan of / .

I am going through whatever online resources I find on Perforce. If someone has a "golden reference" for git-perforce integration, please help me out [I have read about `git-p4` -- going to try that out in next few days.]

Two CSS properties walk into a bar.

A barstool in a completely different bar falls over.

I learnt Logo when I was in middle school. I believe that that should now be replaced with teaching :D

Wait... so can you not access the file system on an iOS device? How do you transfer music and stuff? Like real FLAC files and stuff... wait... you don't have an SD card port?

How do you people use iPhones?

/ and enthusiasts: If you haven't yet, check out the new *go-org* library by Niklas Fasching:

It is an Org mode to HTML converter written in Go, and looks like the best non-Elisp Org mode parser till date!

[ It will soon replace the outdated Goorgeous library in too. ]

You know those little bugs that are always in your face but you are too lazy or don't have enough time to investigate the root cause of?

It feels good to fix 2 such bugs today in , and especially so because I also have test cases added to prevent regressions on those -- one fix committed upstream, another waiting to be approved.
