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.

My MacBook Pro is almost always closed and plugged in to a display. I’d love to buy a wireless keyboard with TouchID for 1Password/Apple Pay.

Thanks Rick. Appreciated!

Yes, Micropublish now needs some love. It’s no longer compatible with the latest Micropub drafts.


I’m happy to say this site is now running my new IndieWeb microblogging software, Transformative, which I’ve open-sourced on GitHub.

annoying to have a watch PIN though isn't it? That's why I stopped

@nstanley Oh really? I don’t find I need to enter the Watch PIN. You can unlock the Watch with its paired iPhone.

Success rate of my Apple Watch unlocking my MacBook Pro is now in the 90s% 👍

So I’ve been hacking away for a couple of months but I think I’m almost there with my new personal website/engine.

My aim has been to rebuild to support the latest Micropub draft specification, including full edits and deletes/undeletes via JSON, and pass the and test suites.

I’m now at 100% for both and I suppose all that’s left is to refactor a tiny bit, import my content, write it up and then push it live. It’s tempting to keep tinkering but I think I’ll learn more from selfdogfooding and getting it out in the wild.
