Not a lot of new stuff this week, but I have worked on some stuff this week.

  • The org file my wiki was generated from is now included, will soon add a link to it and the github project
  • A links section. The idea is to add links I use all the time to this one
  • A Journal section. The idea is to add some limited in scope or time “blog like” series of texts here. Currently only one on how I think about making this wiki
  • Added a “last updated” timestamp to everything. Set to today.
  • Updated my comics list
  • Some small re-org of the emacs section

Updates in the last two weeks

23.02.2020 09:07

Most of my focus at the moment are going into my wiki, but because I don’t have or want a RSS feed there, I’ll write every week or every two weeks here about the changes I have done there.

  • I took all my blog post drafts I had and added them to the wiki
  • Did some simple re-organisation. I’ll probably do more of it next week.
  • Went through everything and updated it
  • And I’m also playing around with the non stable version of Emacs again, the upcoming version 27. It has native support for JSX and tabs.

The other big thing I have been doing this week is to take a break from Micro.blog, like I wrote about on Friday. I appriciate how supportive a lot of people were about why I chose to do that. I’m currently checking out Mastodon.

Taking a break from Micro.blog

21.02.2020 18:56

Recent happenings here at Micro.blog have gotten me to taking a break from Micro.blog. It might be a short term or I might never come back. I have added all the RSS feeds of the people I followed to my RSS reader, and if you want to talk I’m always available on https://keybase.io/hjertnes. I’m not removing my site from Micro.blog for now, but I might do that in the future.

Who knows?

The reason I am leaving is that I believe Micro.blog has the oposite problem of Twitter. A lot of the time when someone are critical, negative or harsh people start to criticize it. Or sending me links to the community guidelines, even though what I said could not in any resonable proper interpretation be i violation of.

At the current state I don’t feel like I can be myself here. It seems to me that the only style of writing that is okay here at the moment is what I would describe as “lunch at gradma” or “christian youth club”. It is sad, because I do enjoy a lot of the people on here.

I have moved my wiki off from hugo to being one large HTML document instead. My friend @eli first did it, and I decided to do the same myself. The reason is that I write my wiki as a large org file, and this kind of output reflects what I see it as
