⭑⭑⭑ Hi there. Please take a moment to register to vote if you haven’t already. Thank you. ⭑⭑⭑
Obviously, you should support whichever Democratic nominee floats your particular boat. Bernie would probably be great. Biden will probably… be fine. Buttigieg… sure. Whatever, right?
But I’m with Warren. I like what she says and how she says it. She’s the best candidate in the race. I know she could win. I know we deserve better than *looks around* this.
But if she’s not your cup of tea I hope you’ll join me in supporting these other folks:
In November though, Hugo switched Markdown processors to Goldmark. And Goldmark seems to have a somewhat unsophisticated implementation of a SmartyPants-like punctuation processor which doesn’t properly handle apostrophes.
So now, when using the default Markdown processor, my site renders with straight single quotes in place of apostrophes. Fortunately, you can configure Hugo to use the former Markdown processor. (That’s good!) But the former Markdown processor is also cursed. (That’s bad.)
For some reason, Blackfriday (the former Markdown Processor) no longer converts certain characters (like < and >) to HTML entities (like < and >) when they’re within a code block. Which is something that it absolutely should and used to do!
Meanwhile I sit here, obstinately refusing to learn either enough Perl or Go to contribute to solving this problem in any meaningful way. Praying that this issue irritates enough people for someone with more free time on their hands to fix these issues. :)
Rey is such a fantastic character. We don’t deserve her.
The new costume is great, the lightsaber is repaired…
…and the last Jedi is all out of bubblegum.
Would. You. Look. At. This.
I’m not crying. You’re crying. Shut up.
What are they all… looking at…

Can’t wait. :) Keep ’em coming, Disney.
$4,999 for the display. Plus $999 for the stand. Plus $999 for the optional matte option.
I wish Apple had announced an “Apple 5K Display” in 2016 rather than partnering with LG on the LG UltraFine 5K Display. I still hope they’re planning to release what’s essentially the UltraFine panel (which I assume is basically the 5K iMac panel) in an Apple-branded case. But given the way the display market has played out over the past 2.5 years, and given the displays that most companies tend to buy for Mac laptops these days, the UltraFine is a fantastic display and it’s insane that you apparently can’t get them anymore.
Flashback: The first iWalt.com post on record includes me dreaming about spending nearly $8K on a 22-inch Cinema Display and a PowerMac G4. So this post is extremely on-brand.
RIP Movable Type. Of all the apps I have encountered in my travels, yours was the m-most… bloggy.
I’ve migrated the site over to Hugo and we’ll see how that goes for a while. (Sure builds a lot faster, I’ll say that.)
Want to feel old? Thanksgiving was a week ago.
