Currently working on

  • In case you didn't notice, I added a dark mode to the site recently. Click the icon above my face to toggle. Hoping to write soon about how I used CSS custom properties to do that
  • I pulled Outshape from the App Store. I'll keep the backend running for a while until I'm sure noone is really using it. Once I've taken it down, I'm gonna look at open sourcing the app. Because why not?
  • I've spent a lot of time on my Home Assistant setup lately. I managed to rid our house of the Wink Hub and am now running everything through a Z-Wave/Zigbee adapter attached to my home server. I'm hoping to spend more time with nodered in the near future and see how I can use it to improve automation.
  • I've started designing a custom iOS app for my Home Assistant server. I'm gonna use it as an excuse to play with SwiftUI
  • I've got a design and template ready for the Three Things Weekly newsletter's return. But I don't have enough things. And I'm worried about having enough time to collect them and do what I want with them.
  • I'm looking into the idea of starting an urban farm/co-op in the big field behind our house. I'm fleshing out goals and trying figure out if it's possible and if I can get the neighborhood association in on getting the land.
