Consolidating Websites

*Update: 15/01/2021. It’s done. I moved everything and it all seems to be working. If something is broken, let me know, on [the fediverse][cbj], or mailing me at jason at this domain. To my tech posse, no there is no forwarding of old links happening. The site is too small and I have no time. Nobody is going to miss this. And to that one little friend, who noticed that the site was dead and actually cried, I love you....

My Plan for the New Year

My plan for the new year … A final thought from Atomic Habits as we start the new year: “Improvements are only temporary until they become part of who you are.

(painfully, punny, I know :)) And now I realise why he asked me to do this. The program itself is trivial. Here’s the code on my code repo, Gitlab, and Github. It just consists of me using GitPython to access the current folder via a GitPython Repo object....

Poem Feed

Update, 2020/11/13: This has been working beautifully! I love the poems as they show up in my feed. This is a tiny little niche thing, I built all for my ownsome. It all started, when I got hooked on reading the daily poem, on the Poetry Foundation page. Learning Python as I am, I wondered if there was a way to have it come to my RSS reader. And so Poemfeed is a tiny little utility that does just that for me....
