The only squares I’ve spent much time with today are the square keys of my MacBook Pro as I’m trying to figure out why my blog suddenly refuses to receive webmentions.
I’ll tag my photos as snapshots and maybe even some special challenge tag, but I’ll get back to you on that.
Here’s the themes for the photos:
- Day 1 (Sat): “Squares”
- Day 2 (Sun): “Tasty”
- Day 3 (Mon): “On the Move”
- Day 4 (Tue): “Up Close”
- Day 5 (Wed): “Liquid”
- Day 6 (Thu): “Seasonal”
- Day 7 (Fri): “Shadow”
First, the WordPress folder wasn’t writable by the www-user.
Secondly, this needed to be done:
You have to edit the Apache conf file (in Ubuntu 14.04: /etc/apache2/apache2.conf) and change the AllowOverride setting from None to FileInfo
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
Require all granted
You may need to enable the Rewrite module:
sudo a2enmod rewrite

I still haven’t figured out a good way to ”Rube Goldberg” my tweets from the Switch to my blog. It’ll likely be something really low tech in the end.
Today I made another attempt, realized I was looking in the wrong place and also where I should look an low and behold, I found it! I thought about googling it multiple times when I got frustrated but now I’m so glad that I didn’t. The feeling of accomplishment was really intense when I found it.
I’ve known for quite some time that I need to cut down on my Twitter usage. Most of the time it doesn’t make me happy, doesn’t make me feel more closely connected with my friends and doesn’t make me feel like I’m caught up on the news. In fact, the only thing it does is make me feel angry and frustrated. It keeps me in this loop of outrage, disgust and the feeling of moral superiority that so many of us are a part of and help feed.
So I need to cut back on Twitter. I started a while ago, probably a year ago, by deleting Twitterrific from my phone and computer. I allowed myself to dip back into it from time to time using Twitters horrible web interface and for a few months I kept it casual. Then I reinstalled the app for a while, removed it when I realized that it started taking up too much time again but from that point on I haven’t been able to keep myself away from browsing via the web.
That is where I am right now. I mindlessly check Twitter whenever, wherever, and I always come across something that makes me feel bad or angry or sad or outraged.
With syndication off that would mean I would just be a passive spectator and that would hopefully feel like such a waste of time that I don’t even bother going there.
Cross your fingers for me!
Idag är det inte Halloween.
Let me know if you do take the time and make your own microcast.
That’s a really cool example of displaying comments! I have added a line about you to the IndieWeb comments page, please edit if you have more to add about the displaying behaviour.
Thanks P2 theme. I tried it out a week or so ago to try to solve a different problem on my blog and while it didn’t help with its intended purpose, I did really like the inline comments.! It got the idea for from the
(While recording this I tried so hard to not say Make the Mac Great Again or something similar. In fact, I tried so hard that when I listen back to it its absence is so clear that I just have to make that the name of the episode.)
Would you all please just start a blog? I don’t care which platform you choose. Pick one and publish.
