@jonnybarnes this should be a self-reply, just testing.
I like how I’m handling notes on my site now. #happy
My website should now support a more robust syndication to Twitter. So if a note is too long it gets appropriately shortened. Also I’m now on Laravel 4.1
So I now have a simple notes section on my website capable of syndicating to Twitter. Even with short URLs as seen by the last note.
Drive is such a beautiful movie
I’ve decided to stop using my DumbQuotes library on my site. I found that there were too many issues. Primarily with raw HTML and code-blocks. The straight-quotes in these sections all needed escaping so my library didn’t mangle anything. So I am now manually typing in curly-quotes using the appropriate keyboard shortcut. This is much simpler to maintain and keeps my markdown clean.
I have also slightly redesigned my site. I was using Skolar and Myriad Pro but found this a little clichéd. I am now using Prenton for titles and Livory for my body text. I’m liking the look so far. For readability I’ve also increased the font-size slightly.
Dan Pallotta gives an excellent TED talk about the differences in how the non-profit and for-profit sectors spend money. In summary, he suggests that our current attitude that charities must spend as little on overhead as possible is actually limiting the amount of good they can do. Who cares about the overhead, what matters is how much money actually gets spent on doing good. In order to grow that number then money will have to be spent. This shouldn’t be stigmatised like it currenly is.
I have no idea where Eric Mill got his pseudnym of konklone from but this is a great article he's written about using StartSSL certificates to secure your website.
The great thing about StartSSL is that their certificates are free. My previous SSL certificates I've used have cost money, albeit only in the region of about £10/year. Free is still free.
As far as I can tell StartSSL will let you have as many free (domain/email validated) certificates. I have two registered so far.
I can highly recomend StartSSL to anyone thinking of getting an SSL certificate.
I am active to varying degrees on several silos:
- I keep in touch with friends on Facebook
- I follow people I find interesting on Twitter
- I push code to GitHub
- I scrobble songs to last.fm that I listen to on Spotify
- I post photos to Instagram
- I also post to pnut.io
