  • Custom monospace fonts

    Pardon the noise; this is only a test.

    I’ve added some custom CSS to get any microblog content in <code> and <pre> tags using my favourite monospace font, Fira Code:

    @import url(https://cdn.rawgit.com/tonsky/FiraCode/1.205/distr/fira_code.css);
    code {
      font-family: 'Fira Code';
    pre {
      font-family: 'Fira Code';

  • Typo of the day: flailures

    I mean, it sometimes feels that way, doesn’t it?

  • The trouble with fussy coffee-making techniques is that they’re needed when I’m not quite awake, and so I now have a mug of freshly-squeezed hot water.

  • So, I’m liking the hardware, and then I find out that there’s a Logitech Craft SDK.

    I haven’t really dug into it, but it would be pretty cool to use the keyboard’s crown to activate and scrub in Glitch’s Rewind feature. 🤔

  • Learning Java for fun and… learning!

  • On paper, the Logitech Craft hits all the points I’m looking for: Bluetooth/wireless connection to 3 devices, backlit, Mac and Windows keys, solid build. I’m not particularly interested in the dial interface, so long as the key action is satisfying.

  • My Matias wireless keyboard is less than a year old, but is having weird disconnect issues and I’ve somehow worn the lettering off of three keycaps. Bringing home one of these fancy-pants Logitech Craft keyboard as a possible replacement.

  • Did I sleep through the spring, summer and, autumn or something? Is it January again?

  • 📚 Just finished reading Steve Krug’s Don’t Make Me Think, Revisited_. A classic (and excellent) read, as I plan some updates to various sites and apps of mine.

  • I’ve been using git for years and I still get nervous when I need to do anything beyond pull ➡️ add ➡️ commit ➡️ push — so I’m thrilled about this: Reinventing Version Control with Glitch Rewind – Glitch – Medium 🎏

  • I spent the morning with my tailor in his atelier for some alterations. In no way does it diminish the work of those that create in the digital realm, but there’s just something about manual craft labour.

    What would artisanal software development look like?

  • “Computer was locked (possibly sleeping) while connected to a Lenovo ThinkVision X1 monitor via the supplied Lenovo USB-C cable, wouldn’t wake up when I tried tapping a key on the keyboard this morning.”
