the huell howser legacy is online!

Bookmarked Huell Howser Archives at Chapman University by Huell Howser

Gold has struck! For those who’ve never heard of the enthusiastic Huell Howser, he created a show that ran for years on California’s PBS stations which highlighted his trips and research to various locations around the state.

Because of his show, I visited a few places in the state that I would not have otherwise thought about or known. In October of 2017, for example, we went apple picking about a couple hours east of LA and it was a really nice way to get out of LA proper and enjoy one of the many things that California has.

If you want a taste of what kind of show he made, try the episode about the Hollywood Sign.

He left behind such a great legacy and now I can see more episodes that I missed through the years!

I intend to continue updating my site with an agenda to use what I’m doing as a basis for new web projects that are all-in-one products for sites to own their own content. It feels like a new frontier!

Returned to my roots of web design today, spending most of the working day on my site. It’s fun to recapture the joy of creating!

Considering my move back to my site for consuming and sharing online, I’d love to see more people’s OPML files like the one @chriscoyier provided a few years ago in this thread

The flip side of losing Edge is that Microsoft now has the potential to take an advanced product and outdo its competitors. Lose some potential, gain some potential.

LiveJournal has export to WordPress project on Github

Replied to Gonna take a communbity to hold that back scratcher: @Tumblr to the #IndieWeb by Greg McVerryGreg McVerry
Import–needs rock solid LiveJournal-clone and Tumblr support if your site is to serve as an archive. I don’t know if there even is a working Wordpress plugin to import from LJ or Dreamwidth. The best-supported Tumblr->Wordpress importer is actually better than most standalone Tumblr backup tools...

I made some commits to a project on Github that allows LiveJournal to be imported into WordPress. Would be great to see other projects that import other silo content into WordPress.

Why couldn’t Microsoft allow EdgeHTML to be open source software? Why couldn’t it be evergreen? I am torn about Edge moving to Chromium under the hood.


Bookmarked What Doctors Know About CPR (Topic)
On TV, a few pushes on their chest is enough to bring someone back to life. The truth is more complicated.

This contains some very interesting insight into CPR, things I was not aware of. I’m overdue to refresh my knowledge and experience with CPR, but there’s more to it than I realized. Found this via Kottke.

This is probably my first public technical writing post I’ve made. It’s not as in-depth as it could have been, but it was still a valuable experience. Enjoy!
