One final run to the beach and back before this year comes to an end.
Having given Indiekit responsibility for syndicating posts in place of Micro.blog, a problem is soon revealed; any post not published via Indiekit will not get syndicated. Think I need to make feed.json the canonical source for what gets shared.
Saddened to learn of the death of Martin Lambie-Nairn, whose innovative identities could at one point be seen across all 4 terrestrial TV channels in the UK. His book Brand Identity for Television With Knobs On inspired my dissertation and interest in television graphics. Hero.
If everything is wired up correctly, this should be the first note on my website to be syndicated to Twitter via Indiekit. 🤞🏻
Adam Buxton doing lorra lorra ‘Queen’ at Live Aid on this year’s Christmas podcast with Joe Cornish had me in absolute stitches; the call and response with the ‘audience’ takes his characterisation of the Queen to a completely new level.
First Christmas on my own since 2009. Oh how I would love to be in New Zealand again, 11 years later.

On a cold winter’s evening.
Have in no way spent a large part of Christmas Eve working out how to get Oh My Zsh to automatically load the version of Node.js listed in an .nvmrc file. I mean, that would be a sign of madness, surely.
Humble brag but lovely to see that Indiekit now has 100 stars on GitHub. Unsure yet if I’ll spend anymore time on it over Christmas.
Christmas tree on Brighton Pier.
Am already behind on my advent calendar.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… the arrival of @qwertykate’s glorious homemade Christmas card.
