Another random railroad, driving over on a misty day in Louisiana. 🚂
Should’ve done this last week, but just added ⚽️ to the featured emoji menu in Micro.blog on the web.
It was nice to mostly take a break yesterday. I know Thanksgiving is just a United States thing, but I like that it’s non-offensive to everyone… Let’s just chill and reflect on what we’re thankful for. Now back to work! Coffee at Rêve in Lafayette and rolling out M.b fixes. ☕️
Pre-turkey Ticket to Ride. 🦃
On the road today. Louisiana rest stop. 🐊
I was joking about this with my family but can’t stop thinking about it… Imagine a Sprinter van, outfitted with bed, kitchen, all the usual camper van upgrades. Now paint it gray and add an Amazon Prime logo. Easy parking anywhere without questions!
Old mailboxes on Burnet Road.
We started using Cloudfront last week and tonight I nervously signed in to Amazon, realizing I had no idea how much we were going to be charged. Answer: $0, for now. Amazon’s pricing is so confusing. One of the reasons I prefer Linode.
With the news that Tumblr is planning ActivityPub support, a quick reminder that you can already follow any Tumblr user from Micro.blog. Just enter
someone.tumblr.com in Micro.blog’s Discover search! I use this for following a few artists and writers.
My morning so far… Low tire pressure light, found a nail in a tire. Dropped the car off to get the tire replaced. Coffee nearby at Turnstile, watching server log files. 🙁
Spirited was way better than I expected. Need to watch it again closer to Christmas and see how it holds up. 🎄
Registered for a new test account on Micro.blog to remind myself what the onboarding flow is like. It’s not great. “Welcome to M.b, here’s a totally blank page! Good luck!” Going to tweak a few little things so new users aren’t lost.
An appropriately cold day in Austin. Coffee and server troubleshooting while the rain falls outside. ☕️
