  • Blog Post Visualization + Code
    I’ve been doing maintenance galore on this site. I have a hand-written theme and I’ve been doing things like returning the footer to a good shape and sweating the responsive details of it. I first wrote that code in 2010 but I’ve adapted it to be a bit better and now am using CSS Grid…

  • Ventcheck – a twitter bot I wrote in 2016
    Back in 2016 I attended a terrific session of the San Diego Code Kitchen at FAB LAB San Diego. It was really a lot of fun and in a few hours I was able to create an inscrutable twitter bot – @ventcheck. It was fun! I didn’t write about it here because… well… who blogged…

  • Roman Numerals, Updated.
    Back in 2012 I first added the Roman Numeral page, as I noted in this post. It’s ultra-simple but it’s also quite fun. I also removed jQuery from those pages. I made individual pages for individual numbers. I upgraded from the older version of Bootstrap that page uses. Enjoy.
  • import-external-images 500 error with Ajax
    I had a pile of back-images to import recently. For some reason WordPress Import External Images” was failing to work properly on the bulk task. It worked great on individual pages but for some reason the Ajax version would crap out. Solution was to use a simple POST – accomplished by doing this in Chrome…
  • Who doesn’t love code?
    Longtime blogger and longtime pal MAS mentioned me over in Make and Host Your Own Soundboard yesterday. I am glad to have contributed to more software. I dig being able to give to code that people use, even if it’s for no money. I love even more that the whole thing is up on GitHub….
  • Programming Tinder
    WOW. Go read: AUTOMATING TINDER WITH EIGENFACES This is some straightforward, and yet entirely brilliant programming. This person took his prior Tinder choices, made an aggregate of “yes” and “no” swipes, then used the official Tinder APIs to automate his selections. This is kind of Artificial Intelligence, though a better term might be “expert system”…
  • Stupid HTTP Status Jokes
    Questionable humor value. And yet, there I go.

  • My Open Source Report Card
    THE OPEN SOURCE REPORT CARD based on GitHub accounts, like mine. e.g.: Joe is a high caliber Javascripter. Joe is a hump day hero who seems to work best in the morning. Joe’s behavior is quite similar to pdokas‘s but pdokas spends more of their time commenting on issues. It would also be impossible to…
  • ArtLung Semidaily Links
    In 2004 the linkblogging bug bit me. I was inspired by Jorn Barger and Andy Baio. This predated twitter, and Facebook of course. And providing an updated list of “what’s cool” was really fun to do. I gave up on it in 2005, and found the original del.icio.us and moved everything there. In the 8…

  • Scrobbling with last.fm
    I have had a last.fm account since 2005. Most of the music represented in here is from a long time ago. The only brand new additions on the list above are My Bloody Valentine and Blooper, who I first became aware of only in the last few months. I was scrobbling a lot in 2005,…
