Stupid 119 2/2/2

Today was tough.

Stupid only has 2 image files. Everything else is SVG. I’d like to make it zero.

Even I fail. And I made the Stupid thing! Deployed several bug fixes this morning. Thanks to all for their feedback! Keep it coming.

Stupid has no server-side component. It does not store any data on the server. And, it has no tracking or analytics. I have no idea how many people are playing. And I like that.

I wonder how long before I see Stupid scores popping up on Twitter or in my RSS feed subscriptions? Will someone with a ton of followers post it somewhere and I’ll never know? So fun to wait and see.

You may think Stupid is a terrible name. It isn’t a terrible name, it is a stupid name.

OK. Here it is. Inspired by playing lots of Wordle, I built a word game. It is called Stupid. You can play it at stupidwordgame.com – I’ll write more about it soon. Official launch May 2nd. All stats start over then. Any problems please let me know.

Reminder: If you’ve subscribed / followed someone online for a while via RSS or a social service, consider taking a moment to stop by their website to see if they’ve put anything there that doesn’t end up in their feed.

In my Twitter wish list I forgot RSS! This egregious error has been corrected.

The current CDC guidelines for COVID exposure seem very dumb.

Added some art pieces to the new portfolio. I have many, many more art pieces, photography, and software projects to add. It is going to take me a long time to get everything online.

How many of you have IRL friends that read your blog on the regular?

Found a beat up abandoned blind while on a hike. I am going to patch it up and see if I can use it to get a bit closer to wildlife.

I’m going to start sharing my art (mostly watercolor paintings) on my website now. :) Starting with this watercolor portrait of William Chickillo from 2021. I also photographed him on film.

I am so excited about how my redesigned site is coming together. I haven’t been this excited about my personal website in a long time. I have so much work to publish in this new format. Still much to do.

April 22, 2022

I have lots of content to clean up, but the beta version of my site’s redesign is now live.

Played a board game. Then wrote code.

Rather than live stream the redesign of my site, I’m going to update the comments on this post regularly as I make progress. This will likely take several weeks. So check back often.

Maybe I should live stream the redesigning of my website. šŸ¤”

Just switched from the Apple Magic Keyboard to the Keychron K2 – my first mechanical keyboard since I was in grade school, I think?

Iā€™m going to be redesigning and completely rebuilding my website this year. Cypress has served me very, very well. But Iā€™m ready to expand beyond it.
