I mentioned over the summer that I’d thrown together a quick PHP wrapper class for interacting with the Bluesky API / AT protocol. And by quick, I mean quick. I wrote it one night, did a blog post on it in the early morning the next day, and called it good. Different issues with it […]
Over at DetroitHockey.Net, how I format my posts is constantly evolving. One of those changes is around the concept of a “matchup image.” Way back in 2005 I rebuilt the site in such a way that big headline stories were expected to include some kind of featured image. I took photos at every game I […]
Much like last fall’s version of the Twitterpocalypse saw people running to Mastodon (and, seemingly, quickly running back to Twitter) as a replacement social media platform, this summer’s edition has seen a shift to Bluesky social. As I try to keep my various sites relevant, that means learning how to have them interact programmatically with […]
I’ve got a webhook for my main Trello board that’s so simple that I don’t really even think of it anymore. Today, though, I was working in the board my wife and I use for our household stuff and it annoyed me that it wasn’t there, so I set it up and figured it was […]
I’m trying to get myself to better recognize work I’ve completed, so I wrote a process to look at my Trello board and send a Slack message to myself. This is why and how.
Notes on how the project integrating FantasyHockeySim.com with Invision Power Board went and how it was done.
I’ve been toying around with Slackbots a bit lately. Back in January I wrote about publishing a Git log to Slack via one. They’re dirt simple to implement and can be really useful. They can also be fun. I’ve added a couple bots in our office Slack just for posting randomness, running as cron jobs. […]
At my day job our codebase is kept in a handful of self-hosted Git repositories. We have a tool that runs nightly, emailing out a digest of all of the previous day’s commits. It’s kinda cool but I have the tendency to ignore it as a wall of text. I prefer more granular messaging and […]
So I’m a bit particular about how I keep my finances in order. To the point that I wrote my own web-based ledger software to help myself keep it all straight. Yeah, there are third-party solutions out there, but I wanted something that worked exactly the way I wanted. Every couple days I pull receipts […]
One of the first things I wrote about when I started this blog was my workaround solution for exporting from TechSmith Snagit to Amazon S3. That worked okay for Windows but I’ve started working on Mac significantly more of late and I missed that functionality. As such, I took another look at options for this […]
