Sometimes finding THE solution isn't the answer because we don't always know what THE solution should be. Instead we should justify why a solution that we found is good enough until a better solution arrives...

We talked about this (kinda and also it's opposite) in Conduit Ep 42.

New Video 📹: I found this VS Code Extension to run tasks from the side bar. There was a minor issue with it but instead of trying something different, I found the fix and made a video (I also filed an issue and submitted a PR).

  • [ ] a bad idea: start a podcast with big main character energy where someone reads your musings and you explain them.

Needing to test my youtube embed plugins, so here is one of my favorite covers

To the person that got me into pluggy You know who you are...

Thank you... Also you've given me a new hammer.

Hammer hitting nail

Another wild week of Render Engine Development. I wound up getting Pluggy working in render engine and now even have a plugin for pytailwindcss up and running and started working on another.

Another custom parser (probably the last one for now as I need to start working on other things).

Hello, Microblog Parser.

This is how I make these posts (Yes including this one!)

I've also added the README to the Extensions Section of the Render-Engine Discussions. I will hopefully be adding more of the content there.

In today's mental health corner. I've been feeling some overwhelm as of late and wanted to share a video that helped me a bit. I'll be fine, Just need to defer/drop some things and get back into the groove (hopefully talks on bicep, azd, and devcontainers can help realign my focus).

Date: 2023-01-16 11:14

The talk I was most excited about giving didn't get accepted to PyCon US this year. That said I'm excited to be able to submit it to other places like JuneteenthConf and Refactr.Tech!

Just a reminder of how awesome shortcut detective is. I ran into an issue where I somehow mapped ⌘+w to another shortcut. I remembered this app from Irradiated Software. Still works for Big Sur (At least the intel chip one)

Two entries into my zshrc to make editing my two most edited config files easier on me.

``` " Quickly open my zshrc alias zshrc="nvim ~/.zshrc"

" Quickly Open my vimrc ~NOTE: ~/.config/nvim/init.vim is the default location for neovim (nvim) " The default path for your .vimrc is ~/.vimrc

alias vimrc="nvim ~/.config/nvim/init.vim" ```

These notes about how to improve in Hearthstone probably apply in other areas of life:

  • Don't play distracted
  • Order
  • Think about what you did wrong each game (It will help in the future)

@pilotmoon I would love to see pop clip support a "Noguchi" style ordering (Last Used moved to the front) - https://twitter.com/kjaymiller/status/1123282125497585664

Now I'm starting to wish there was a recently used @draftsapp Actions group that does the same thing.

David (A recent guest on the PIT Show) had an excellent conversation with Kourosh Dini about idea management.

It gave me some very NPR Productivity vibes.

Things I failed at tonight: - Working on Book - Getting Newsletter Post Written - Billable work that I need to finsh to get paid - Finish Scheduling Podcast

Things I did do: - Two Blog Posts - Lot's of Tailwind Changes to site - Couple of good tweets

Can I sleep now?

A new idea for a podcast I'm thinking of of is the AntiProductivity Show (Working Title) where I talk with folks that play with Productivity tools to discover the weaknesses in their systems. It's like a productivity show but honest.

I really wish that NvAlt(NvUltra) and Drafts allowed me to set keybindings so I could match them with my NeoVim Keybindings.

My brain always strikes the keys anyway now.

Date: 08 Nov 2020 21:57

Moving the blog to tailwind so the site itself will be horrendous for a bit.

There are a bunch of great Duck Duck Go Bang Commands! Many that I've gotten used to!
