Come to think of it, my entire day has been taken up with really annoying database issues. I still don’t understand fully why either happened, but fingers crossed, I think I’ve fixed them. If not, tomorrow is going to be more of the same…

I switched my Manjaro installation to Gnome instead of KDE last night, as a lot of the tools I use seem to assume a Gnome/GTK environment and some of the integrations didn’t work right on KDE.

Anyway, I can now use my home PC as a space heater 🔥

I mentioned over on Micro.blog that I’d managed to get a workable edit/commit/push workflow on my iPad. Naturally, I’m now considering a keyboard to complete the setup.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good keyboard to use with a 9.7” iPad Pro?

The last time I had a similar setup, I used an Apple Wireless Keyboard (in an Origami case/stand) as the Bluetooth keyboard + case combos available at the time all felt horrible to type on. I do have a spare ultra-compact mechanical keyboard I could try with a USB adapter, but thinking more about it, that’s probably not going to work well when I don’t have a table to work on.

So, if anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

I managed to work a little on Saorsa this evening, for the first time in a while. Mostly working on the markup of the comments, and adding little accessibility and microformat improvements where I can. I’m really trying not to put arbitrary timelines on things, but I’d like to have the skeleton HTML mostly locked down in time for IndieWeb Summit 2019. Whether that’s achievable will be determined by how much more I can get done over the weekend.

That awkward moment when – while merely throwing around ideas for a project – you realise you’re at £100 in 3D-printed parts before even buying a single miniature to go with those parts… 🤔
