The posts “testtesttest” and “esttest” on my PuSH Playground site on Blogger from 2009 were flagged as spam and automatically unpublished by Google.

This is silly for multiple reasons, one being that they have left posts like “aaaa” and “asdf” as is on a site that is very unlikely to have had any impact on anyone for the last 13.5 years…

But anyway, it is also a great reminder to own your stuff. And a fun reminder of how much of a playground the web is sometimes. Those rssCloud and pubsubhubbub days were a blast.

WASM in the browser is cool and all, but somebody has to have figured out WASM in a browser in WASM in a browser by now

Earlier I was walking around, drinking my coffee and singing “Ain’t nothing gonna break my stride” 🎶 but this plugin just stuck out its foot and tripped me and probably stole my coffee

I’m playing with making API calls to GitHub via their gh command and using the --jq flag to filter the response.

I stumbled on this great explainer for JQ and it unfolded exactly as I needed while reading through. A+

I’m happy, hope you’re happy too 🎶

In reply to: the last NGP / EveryAction / ActionKit spam note

It took a few months, but it’s not just Gavin. This is no surprise, obviously.

Katie Porter, a congressperson from California, is proud to announce to me, a resident of Washington that she doesn’t “do Congress” the way others do: by sending me an unsolicited email.

This email was sent via ActionKit, through act.katieporter.com. I believe it should be covered by the EveryAction block list, but I also think that game is rigged anyway.

If I were a resident of California, I would be able to invoke my rights under CCPA, but I’m not, so I’ll send her office an email, hit unsubscribe and cross my fingers.

I do pay income tax in California, shouldn’t that count for something? 🤔

Of course I enjoy paying $28 every 4 weeks for NY Times games like Crosswords, Wordle, and my favorite: having to tap “No thanks, I’ll read here” every time I read an article on the website.

Deployed a create_function polyfill to keep this archived client site alive for a few more months, feeling great

The empty feeling of having visited a used book store and not brought home a book.

I just read through 3072 tickets on GitHub related to template parts in WordPress not having granular capability checks and my conclusion is that each of the 3072 tickets have been closed in favor of each other.

I think I’m going to quit for the day and go back to reading Catch-22.

This sucks, poor guy. I hope he rounds the corner quickly!

Yesterday I used PHP Parallel Lint for the first time and 🤯 it saves so much time—80% reduction—on a very large monorepo. Good tools are great.
