Tonight I’m packing for a conference about the music business and I’ll be in Stockholm for two days. That means I’ll have my first night away from Ebbe tomorrow. That will feel strange.

Started watching Better Things yesterday. Seems like a fun show. It’s always great to have one of those ”half hour” shows to watch with Linn, in addition to any other longer show we might be watching or that I might be watching by myself.

@jeremycherfas I agree that the main thing that Twitter and Facebook are good for are marketing, but I disagree that my example is an example of marketing.

Sending out a tweet when a podcast starts live streaming or when a new episode is posted makes sense. It helps a lot of people noticing. But telling the listeners of the show that the best way to contact the hosts is via Twitter seems less true. e-mail, a Slack channel or subreddit would work just as well.

I think that especially if a more or less recurring segment on a show is complaining about how twitter is a toxic hell stew that more or less enabled Donald Trump, a person that the hosts paints out to be more or less Lucifer himself, to get elected as POTUS then the hosts really, really should reconsider whether they want to funnel more communication through twitter and thereby helping the service continue on.

I’ve been at home with Ebbe for most of today and he’s been quite cranky so I haven’t had much time to think about today’s photo. Just as I was heading for bed I looked around and as I was about to give up I encountered a familiar shadow.

Moving my blog from a shared host to a VPS really improved its speed dramatically which in turn made blogging, especially photo blogging, a whole lot more fun.

I think the takeaway from that is that the indieweb needs to be as fast and easy to post to as the silos.

This photo seems like a good seasonal one, since the season is quite ambiguous here right now. The calendar says it’s fall but the sub-zero temperature and the frost and snow doesn’t seem to agree.

This is my liquid for the photo challenge. A plain and simple Coke as I’m sitting down behind the trusted old Yamaha 01V96 to mix a discussion panel on filmmaking. Good stuff!

Up close with a Focusrite ISA preamp.

I had originally planned to make a similar photo with a mixing console that I introduced to my students today but time ran out and I needed to get home before the kids bedtime so this was the closest thing I could find in my office.

Today I’ve taken one of our cars, a Saab 9-3, to the repair shop for some service of the block heater. Important stuff when the Swedish winter is approaching.

This photo is my contribution to today’s theme for the photo challenge is ”On the move”

Two parts gin, one and a half part Cointreau and one part freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shake until freezing cold and you’ve made yourself a White Lady, a truly tasty cocktail.

Speaking of Twin Peaks: The Return, that is a show that I just can’t get out of my head. I think about it almost everyday, trying to make sense of it.

I don’t think it’s the best tv show ever but certainly one of the most memorable.

I pass this wire pole almost everyday when I’m walking with Ebbe for his nap and I’m fascinated by how it looks. There something about it that reminds me of Twin Peaks: The Return.

Turns out the problem with webmentions was due to my new VPS not having the mb_string extension for php installed and that caused the semantic linkbacks plugin to fail which in turn caused the webmentions plugin to do as well.

I just watched a Kurzgesagt video on how far we’ll ever be able to reach into the universe. I didn’t know and had never thought about the things in the video. Not only are we limited in how far we’ll ever be able to reach in the universe as a species, as time moves on the rest of the universe won’t even be observable from our corner of it.

Even thought I, and anyone who’s likely to read this, will be long gone before this will matter it still made me feel melancholic. I guess sometimes I just don’t want to be reminded about the fact that everything will eventually end. Not just me and everyone I’ll ever known, will know or interact with, but every living thing – the universe itself – will eventually and.

I’ve been putting off moving my main site from a shared host to a VPS for what feels like an eternity. I know I got to do it because it’ll make the site a lot faster and thereby making blogging more enjoyable.

Maybe tonight’s the night when I start the process?

I’ve added all microcasts from the indieweb wiki page to my microcasts OPML.

This thing that Google does where links in search results are actually to their own URLs and not the permalinks is just pure crap!

I just saw a year old article about Pinterest buying Instapaper. I had completely missed that.

A few years ago I was an avid Instapaper user and I cared a lot about it and its future but as I had less and less time to read the stuff I put in my queue my interest decreased.

I had planned to do a microcast per weekday now, but today there won’t be an episode. I’m just not in the mood for it, my brain is preoccupied with too many other things and I’m way too tired as well. Hopefully I’ll get back on schedule tomorrow.

Implemented a few small changes on the theme of my blog, the biggest one being inline comments on the feed pages. Still some bugs to fix.

@johnjohnston You use SemPress for your blog, right? Have you encountered the problem that the theme adds titles to title-less posts and that those titles then F-s up the Micro.blog syndication?

I made an almost complete purge of my RSS subscriptions in FeedWrangler and moved most of the feeds to a river of news instead. Hope that it’ll make following blogs feel like less of a commitment and more like something fun.
