Good morning!

We had a parcel arriving early so I had to be up but I'd already decided that I was going to start rising earlier. It's lockdown so I'm not commuting and there are hours that I could be using productively but have spent largely in bed. It's nice to have a lie-in once in a while but doing so every day is wasteful and is a hard habit to break.

So, for the late shift this week (Tues - Fri, I was on a different shift yesterday) I have set the alarm 90 minutes earlier than I would have done previously. It's still not super early but it gives me extra time to wake up, get my head together and spend doing whatever I want or need.

If it is possible to say there is one good thing that Covid has done it's been to gift me extra time but I have so far idled away too much of it.

This morning's "extra time" was spent restoring another feature from the Wordpress blog: bi-directional links for fragmentions.

If the source URL of a webmention includes a fragmention then this text is identified and made a "back link" to that source URL. I've added a couple of columns to the comments table to store the relevant information and updated the endpoint accordingly.

Now, when comments are listed a check is made against the post content and the fragmention text changed to a link:

Back link

Tests kept failing but using Postman on the Mac it emerged that I had managed to break my webmentions again for anything other than the first post of the day. I had previously reworked the blog HTML and forgotten to close a div. It didn't affect page display, which is why I hadn't noticed, but each subsequent post was seen as part of the first when parsing the microformats.

We received the new rental agreement for the house today so, once signed and approved, it's ours for another year. We have absolutely no intention of moving back down south.
