Doing some upkeep on mike.rockwell.mx, listening to some Alex Melton in Plexamp, and keeping an eye on Mastodon using Sengi.

I reverted back to my previous setup for now. I’ll just deal with the annoyance of syndicating images for a while longer, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Okay, while the setup technically worked, it was a bit messier than I would have preferred. Going to try a slightly different setup — Micro.blog gets the RSS feed straight from Mastodon and WordPress gets it through IFTTT.

I’m using a new method for archiving my Tweets/toots on mike.rockwell.mx, which syndicates to Micro.blog. No idea if it’s even going to work and my site is a bit of a mess now. Lol

.@becky’s job is selling some of their old computers. They have some 2013-2015 MacBook Airs. They’re priced a smidge higher than I think they should be, but we’re probably still going to get at least a couple.

— Caps lock exists on iPhone. It can be enabled/disabled in Settings > General > Keyboard > Enable Caps Lock. Double tap the shift key to use it.

Good news, the hedge trimmer I ordered is no longer scheduled for delivery in a month. I only have to wait a week to do yard work now.

If you have a Twitter account, I feel like you should, at the very least, setup a Mastodon account and crosspost to it. initialcharge.net/2021/07/mast

This is a funny headline. It makes it sound like you can dislike individual users on the service. Lol 9to5mac.com/2021/07/21/twitter
