Been trying to keep a Bullet Journal since 2013. Before 2018 I didn’t use a system for note keeping. Last year I managed to keep daily notes from April 2018 until August 2018 using full Bullet Journal style. Then I started a new notebook. We went through some tough months with lack of sleep and I gave up keeping notes in the paper notebook. Only have some bits and pieces on OneNote and other digital files. Feeling bad now that I didn’t keep taking the notes on paper. Restarted a new wave of Bullet Journal note keeping last month.

Windows Hello face PC unlock is one of those recent bio-metric authentication technologies that make me feel like we're actually getting closer to what I imagined the future should be like - and it's about time, as 2020 is coming up fast!

Changed my Known site. Switched off OEmbedding for all services by an edit in UnfurledUrl.php. By default Twitter and YouTube links were unfurled into nice-looking cards. Which is great if you don't worry about your privacy; as these embeds brought along a lot of external scripts, and therefor also potential tracking by third-party sites which were out my control. I don't want any tracking on this site.

Changed the layout of my personal "Plans" pages a little. The "Updates" now are announced with their own header and I'm sorting the updates as last added on top. See https://johanbove.info/plans/10-indiewebifyme.shtml for an example. Also fixed some HTML validation issues. Writing in pure HTML can be tricky.

Wow. Twitter followers are soo sensitive. Would be nice to at least leave a little note as to why you unfollow somebody. Was it because you didn't agree with what they posted? Or is the account posting too often? One of the reasons I wanted to take control over my "social-media" by setting up this site, is exactly that I don't care about who follows me here.

It's showing that I have been living in Germany for a while now; had to look up the Dutch translation of the expression "Das macht Sinn" = "Dat is zinvol"

Thinking of organizing an „Homebrew Website Club“ Meeting in Düsseldorf - what would be a good German name for this? „Hausgebrautes Website Club“ doesn’t really sound as cool.

Thought so. Thanks for confirming. Still new at Indiewebbing myself and not many sites use an accept-list for webmention moderation. I will look into that.

Wondering if my outgoing webmentions are coming through. Seems like Likes of post by Jacky Alciné on his site https://v2.jacky.wtf/ and my "like" post responses on Greg's site (https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/) are not coming through. Wondering if it could be the Akismet antispam tool? @jgmac1106 Are you using that on your Known site?

Would be cool if webmentions could tell if it's under moderation and queued up for review.
