Post about how I implemented the #indieweb and #webmentions on my static site. A few people expressed interest in such a write-up, I hope they weren't looking for something less dependent on third-parties...
This implementation works, I know what everything's doing and why. It's okay, but I'm aware it's the weakest part of my website, plus the only one where an actual third-party is involved.
Since we're all excited about the image of Sagittarius A*, here's a different view of the central regions of our galaxy.
In January the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa released a stunning radio dataset. In the image below I colorised it using what we call spectral index, which tells us what causes this radio emission, like electrons accelerated by magnetic fields.
Sgr A* would be an tiny spec at the center of this image.
I'm happy to introduce our new ultra-low tech CMS for smol, accessible websites. The goal was to make something that could be self-hosted, but friendly enough for people who don't SFTP or use a terminal. 3 PHP files, Apache, and Gemtext. Should work on any dumb old Apache host; a technical person could manage many of these for friends and family with zero maintenance. Happy to answer any questions or take bug reports.
child death, but positive news? still a very heavy topic but it's a good development
THEY FIGURED OUT SIDS
My husband is a pharmacist and pointed out that this also impacts the ability of doctors to safely anesthetize some patients, because sometimes they need to use a paralytic and if they can test for this enzyme they can have a much better chance of predicting how well their patient will recover
I hope this brings some small measure of peace to parents blaming themself for the loss of an infant to SIDS. Because it wasn't that the mattress was wrong or there was a blanket nearby or whatever whatever because blankets don't fuck up obscure baby brain enzymes
it's a fucking enzyme thing
And I read this research was at least partially crowdfunded too, so we can maybe add another tally to the Seizing The Means Of Research Production victory column.
Plume 0.7.2 is out
Changes for timelines, fix for federation and internal improvements https://fediverse.blog/~/PlumeDev/Plume%200.7.2%20is%20out/
And I just remembered I ran into exactly the same problem on one of my hobbyist pages a couple of months ago, only with a completely different stack generating the file and a completely different program reading it.
No wonder I didn't think of it at first.
