This is Barry Frost’s personal website.

“The 50 Best Britpop Albums”. Not sure all are /Britpop/, but god, I own and still listen to almost all of these.

iOS 10.3 brings wifi and 4G calling for O2 (UK). NB: you need to disable their TU Go service (my request is pending) http://www.o2.co.uk/help/network-coverage-and-international/wifi-and-4g-calling

Very strong morning at #WXGFIVE . Highlight was relearning everything about social media from @TheSocialChain’s omnipotent @SteveBartlettSC.

I’m in Covent Garden, London, not far from today’s attack and marking myself safe.

Samuel’s story: a heartwarming, eye-moistening video, no matter who you support.

Sitting in today’s product demo at work and realising that my age now qualifies me for our “mature” online dating sites #oldfogey

Cracking afternoon at the rugby yesterday. #6nations #engfra

Great memories of Chelmsford and gigs in my youth listening to @BBClamacqshow earlier tonight: The Army & Navy, The Y and @BassmentBar

Indie Microblogging

I’ve just backed Manton Reece‘s “Indie Microblogging: owning your short-form writing” Kickstarter project. It’s a book and upcoming micro blogging platform (Micro.blog) that dovetails neatly with my thoughts and work on the IndieWeb.

As I’ve noted before, Manton aims to support many of the same technologies I’ve implemented on this site and I’m happy to support him in developing his platform. His vocal support for the IndieWeb is a welcome high-profile voice. Good luck, Manton.

Really happy to see that #webmention is now a W3C recommendation. 👏 @aaronpk and all @indiewebcamp implementers.

Pushed my Micropub client live - Micropublish https://micropublish.net - just in time for the new year. Now time for a few drinks. Happy NY!

Micropublish 2

Today I pushed a rebuild of my Micropub client, Micropublish, live to https://micropublish.net. The source is on GitHub. 

I’ve squeezed it out just before the end of 2016 so that I meet my IndieWeb commitment. For the first time I’m now able to edit posts on this site and delete (or undelete) them if needed. 

There are a couple of things I want to improve, but it’s ready for use. If you have a compatible site I’d welcome you to kick the tyres and let me know how you get on.

Writing computer programs is interesting and fun.

My 2017-01-01 IndieWeb commitment is to complete my rewrite of Micropublish to support Micropub updates, deletes and undeletes. My site’s Micropub endpoint supports these methods so I now need to bring my client up to date.

Performed by only the most skilled, a Lucky Barry is a crap where bog roll is only required for posterity. In essence it’s the perfect crap with no mess. Handy when attempting to take a crap in the woods. “There was no bog roll in the shitter, thank God it was a Lucky Barry.”

TIL: Lucky Barry.
