The posts in this home page are semi-curated, which means that you do not see everything.

Wikis, information and commands. Today I was upgrading the Docker containers in my server and I had to figure out how to fix something because there was a breaking update. For future reference, I added it to some random markdown file I have on my computer with some notes. However, I always forget to check it and end up searching for the same things over and over again.

In the past, I thought about having a public wiki, but that failed. Maybe because I tried to build it on top of very old notes I had that have no real use for me nowadays. What do you use to keep this types of notes and snippets? I wanted to have something simple that I could access and edit at any time, preferably online. Any ideas?

I think thereโ€™s value in Likes. For me theyโ€™re just a way to let the author know I enjoyed their post. In my case theyโ€™re not mean to be public so I keep them unlisted. Inspired by your Listens I added a similar section on my website, but it gets one post per month or whenever I mark a song as โ€œLoveโ€ฆ

Uh, I like the idea of keeping the likes unlisted. Perhaps that’s a great idea. Regarding the listens and watches: I like to collect all the information, and since I have it, why not display it? Besides, the way I’m collecting the listens and watches information right now makes it a bit difficult to work with, so I’m not yet 100% sure how I’m gonna change it.

For the reads, I already updated the pages and what I did is to just have a page per book, and that same page shows all the updates regarding that book. No more posts for started reading, want to read, or just finished reading. I can leverage the post updated date to sort the posts in the reads section.

I could do something similar for the watches page where I would have a post per series and a post per movie. I think that could work nicely. However, the organization for the listens would be harder: is it per artist? per song? per album? I will probably leave these changes for the end, while I deal with the remaining. Do you have any ideas?

Btw, it seems I did not receive a Webmention for the deleted post at https://kandr3s.co/notes/2022/08/2022-08-15-wlaeo. I will remove it manually, but if you send a webmention for a deleted post, my website will automatically remove it.

Iโ€™ve realized that trying to strictly follow what is on the IndieWeb wiki wonโ€™t work well for me. Thus, I have to invent and change some things to make it work better. The IndieWeb Wiki is a good source of inspiration one could use, but I donโ€™t see it as a guideline you need to closely follow. A lotโ€ฆ

Hey! Completely agreed. I think it should be a “reply”. I’m planning on removing the likes in long-term because they don’t add anything interesting. I would say that bookmarks are… bookmarks - posts or websites you find interesting and you might want to look at them in the future. I think those are useful. Likes and reposts feel a bit more… useless let’s say.

I’m trying to “degoogle” and finally got enough courage to give Firefox a real chance. So far, there’s only two main things bothering me:

  1. Firefox does not support Touch ID as a 2FA method on macOS. I have many websites configured using Touch ID (as well as the YubiKeys) for 2FA but I can’t really use it on FF. There’s an open issue about it, of course, but I imagine it taking years to get fixed.
  2. Translation. I don’t speak Dutch and, even though I can use extensions to translate, none of them translates a website as seamlessly as Chrome does.

Whatโ€™s about this Dutch tradition of putting the PJs under the pillow or my boyfriend is just weird?

As a Portuguese person, I can say Iโ€™ve always done this too. Only the pajamas Iโ€™m currently using of course.
