🧉 Martin Awesome! Almost December and it was 18C today, so really can't complain :)
Nick I'm jealous you have the opportunity to use EO at all! Admittedly, I haven't tried to find people to speak it with, but if I did I'd have a lot more motivation to continue studying it.
🧉 Martin If you check eventaservo.org, you'll find events pretty much every day of the week, and they're all online now. I've chatted to people from Africa, Australia, locally, and everywhere else by just joining one of their posted meetups and getting to know people. If you ever want to practise on a Zoom call, I could spare a coffee break to help out!
💩 Niklas Haha, thank you! I was actually surprised to see how many people were using now pages already. Nowadays, I find one almost more often than not when stumbling upon a random personal website.
🧉 Martin Yeah, it's a really handy way to keep up with what folks are doing. I sometimes even browse a random one from nownownow.com.
💩 Niklas The short story you're sharing on your now page sounds like you're living the dream! :) Glad you can explore new places and learn new languages. Here's my now page, that I actually should update again: niklasbuehler.com/...
🧉 Martin It's definitely a little surreal to be using Esperanto so often :) Glad to find at least one other person here with a /now. Grillradar is a cool idea, and I really like the design.
✨ Jacoby Just found your site and I really loved your article Why Read? Thank you for sharing and elaborating on something that has been on my mind lately!
🧉 Martin Awesome! Really glad to hear you enjoyed the post. I enjoy writing... I need to find more time / excuses to do it more often :)
🤔✍️ David That's a neat experience you're having! Also, the /now page is a good idea. I may create one now after I finish playing around with a little app
🧉 Martin The idea comes from the awesome Derek Sivers. More info here: nownownow.com/about
🧉 Martin Finally updated my /now page. Anyone else have one? If so, share! :) martinrue.com/now

🧉 Martin TIL: 1 second is 9,192,631,770 cycles of the radiation corresponding to the transition between two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom. No, really. Take 551 billion radiation cycles to check, if you like.
Sarah Cool!
🧐 Nrmn I actually thought about switching my web server from nginx to Caddy a couple of times already. Was too afraid of the complications for now though.
🧉 Martin I made the switch to Caddy over a year ago now and so glad I did. Much nicer to work with and the TLS stuff is so smooth.
Deep Thank you, Martin! I read one of his articles about RSS feeds and found out the amazing fellow Aaron Swartz.
🧉 Martin You're welcome. Yeah, such a sad story!
🔻 Trinity I just discovered TypeScript. I've always hated JavaScript because of its typing, I might actually get into it now.
🧉 Martin I'm a big fan. Been writing it for a while now and it's a huge step forward in lots of ways. I would say, though, that like anything, it can be over-used in pursuit of the perfect type system, whereby code starts to get a little noisy and not necessarily better.
🧉 Martin I've been enjoying reading a bunch of stuff from twobithistory.org recently. It's full of cool historical tech stuff. Only criticism: I have a "friend" who went there to read one article and stayed until he read *all of them*.

🎲🃏 James York Is it hotter than normal where you are in the world, too?
🧉 Martin Here in north UK, it most certainly is. It's not even raining.
🧿 Andrea This looks awesome! The design is very sleek
🧉 Martin I wrote a little app to make looking at my API's JSON logs a bit nicer. It's only for me, but making nice things is so cathartic! So, who do I talk to about series A? github.com/martinr...

🤔✍️ David We just launched a very basic website for the Police Data Accessibility Project. You can check out some simple details on our mission at policedap.org. Since this is a small group I'd love any feedback and criticisms if anyone has any :)
🧉 Martin Looks great. Performs well. Good accessibility. Nice work!
