My feed reader, current status. Just because. Still runs on just about any hosting environment, still supports h-feeds. No Micropub, yet. (Well, Micropub works. Interface still missing.)
Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.
It’s silly, but seeing https://youtube.com/watch?v=LU1TzfhqI94 made me want to get into recording music again.
In which the author comments on an article titled, “How I heat my home by mining crypto currencies.”
[The] intrinsic value, the useful work achieved, in no way justifies the disproportionately huge heat and carbon expenditure.
Reminds me of that lecture on CHP I once attended.
Was wondering why my OPML-to-blogroll syncing didn’t quite behave as intended. Turns out I had this old filter (
sync_opml_blogroll_feeds) hook in place, still, to allow for more than one OPML endpoint. (That’s right, I’m moving all of my feeds, again.)
Turns out it’s super easy to have WordPress send emails using SMTP. No plugins required.

[C]hecking your portfolio 10 times a week is likely to be bad for your long-term returns—as well as your short-term mental health.
So, I know this site that takes over 20 seconds to load, on a pretty fast connection, because of a 14 megabyte photo on the homepage.

As for whether or not short-sellers are The Man and long traders are The Little Guy, I highly doubt this proposition. [O]verall, short-selling bans don’t seem very likely to make a difference one way or another.
While I’d instructed my feed reader—still, in a way, an Aperture fork—to leave tables in place, it still removes empty
