“Dark mode” Monocle looks pretty nice! (courtesy of Firefox with “night mode” enabled)

I could be convinced to try and build this as a real feature… 🤔

I’ve started using my new(ish) test site to build my new IndieWeb WordPress theme. It’s very early in the process, and I’m getting the markup in place first, before I go anywhere near a stylesheet – so it all looks very 1996 right now.

The lessons learned on “K” will be put into use with this theme, along with several ideas I’ve picked up along the way. I’ve already reused some of the more useful bits of K to give me a head-start, so I know that stuff like the feed and post microformats should be pretty robust (if not yet 100% complete). The main improvement I want to make over K is in flexibility  – i.e. it’s not just usable by me, or locks me/the user into a particular setup.

If there is anything you would like to see in an IndieWeb WordPress theme, or any other suggestions, please file an issue in the repository. I can’t promise I’ll implement it, but at this stage, the chances are high 😉

🔖 Bookmarked: What Really Happens to AirPods When They Die

“Apple finally opens up about their complicated afterlife”

For what it’s worth, my 2½ year old AirPods still charge and work fine, despite taking some abuse, and don’t show that much battery degredation. When the battery inievitably “dies” it’s good to know they can be recycled.

📖 Read: Robert Mueller Wishes You’d Read His Report (The Atlantic) by an author

“Special Counsel Robert Mueller wishes that you’d read his report. He’s not angry; he’s just disappointed.”

an author (The Atlantic)

Mueller is a man out of time. This is the age of alternatively factual tweets and sound bites; he’s a by-the-book throwback who expects Americans to read and absorb carefully worded 400-page reports. Has he met us? His high standards sometimes manifest as touching naïveté. “I hope and expect this to be the only time that I will speak to you in this manner,” Mueller said today, explaining that his report was his testimony and that Congress should not expect him to answer questions with any new information.
