1. Having a go at making Sumendi’s leche frita (fried milk). Just put the mix in the fridge, pretty sure the consistency is perfect, but I’ll find out for sure tomorrow!

  2. Sandeep Shetty: @BarnabyWalters Very cool. What's the use-case though? Also is this coming of the doctrine based indexer that you had?

    @sandeepshetty thanks! I’ve wanted to plot tag usage over time for a while now to see if there are any interesting patterns. I’m not using doctrine any more, in fact I’m not even using a SQL database for indexing until I really need one — data stored in yaml files, indexed by a csv file in ~210 lines of code — see also waterpigs.co.uk/notes/4TQNY2

    When I post a note, adds one to the week counter for each tag, then I have an endpoint which makes that data into an SVG.

  3. New in : latest 3 articles and location of last checkin/location post on the homepage — hopefully some useful/interesting context.

    Next: mobile-focused homepage design.

  4. @chloeweil great article and great work implementing ! Interested in your choice to use a database for performance reasons, was that prompted by actual experience or just the cited help thread? fwiw I’m having no performance problems storing >2000 notes in flat files with a CSV file index

  5. New in this version of :

    • Improved styling (still WIP, as always)
    • stream on homepage, currently just notes but will add other things too
    • content creation/editing UIs publicly viewable (take a peek!)
    • profile photo as the icon
    • complete code restructure, now using silex for HTTP routing
    • removed tonnes of nonsense framework code, replaced with small number of ≈200 line functional libraries. Clearer, easier to navigate and much more fun to work with
    • no more SQL databases — content is indexed using a custom built 209 LOC CSV index which is surprisingly speedy, and suits my needs perfectly
    • no more support for rendering content in many forms using content negotiation (HTML, JSON, ATOM etc.) — now only HTML+microformats2 representations of content are given
    • ATOM feed shimmed with microformats2 to ATOM converter
    • Pingbacks no longer natively accepted (though they are sent), using webmention.io to shim them into webmentions for easier handling

    The local maximum has been overcome, for now. There is still much to do.

  6. When people drop into your IRC channel to ask whether it’s possible to reply to something on your mailing list, that’s probably a good sign you should ditch your mailing list and use IRC + Wiki.

  7. Aaron Parecki: @benwerd Awesome, I've been using an 11" Air for a couple years, I'm a huge fan! I'm switching to the 13" Pro now... http://t.co/RXQM7VZRyG

    Aaron Parecki @benwerd oh cool — I’m upgrading to the 13" retina pro this christmas, good to know it’s a good machine! Certainly a significant upgrade from my trusty old non-unibody MB
