1. Last night I deployed Sublime Blogs to production to test everything out as it stands. The markdown editor completely broke so I got it working locally. Still no luck on production. I’m not getting any error codes or logs either. I will take a look at it tomorrow and see if I can figure out the issue.

  2. I have almost all the main components for Sublime Blogs done. I’m working on authorization right now and then I need to pull together some basic documentation and build out the marketing website. I hope to launch a public beta by the end of April.

  3. Today I worked on getting image uploads to work on Sublime Blogs. It took me a while to figure it out but now it is working!

  4. Today I had I job that required I go spelunking… well sort of. I had to crawl underneath the sacturay of a church that was built in 1905! It was very tight and the enterance was a long way away from where we needed to go.

  5. Today on Sublime Blogs I wrapped up the functionality to switch the site you are working on and started building out the API. Here you can see the edit page for a site where you can create API access tokens.

  6. Over the past several months, I have been trying to decide whether or not to cancel my Google Workspaces subscription. I use it for my business email and I’m grandfathered in to an unlimited storage plan for only $12/month.

    I used to use it as my main form of storage for all the client work I did but I have since decided I don’t want all my data in the hands of Google, especially not the only copy I have, so I purchased a Synology NAS. Now comes the part where I have to migrate 2TB of data from Google Drive to my NAS. Fun 😞

    I won’t really by using much storage on Google Drive but I don’t like the thought of giving up my grandfathered in plan.

    I don’t share as much data with clients anymore (now I’m doing mostly web developer and that is all on GitHub) so I could just throw any files I need to share on an S3 bucket. Maybe even throw that behind CloudFlare for caching.

  7. I set up CloudFlare to cache a site and in the process broke my internet controlled garage door opener. I don’t recall ever blogging about my custom garage door opener, but I should soon. Basically, I can open and close the garage door with a Siri Shortcut or control it from through a webpage.

    I had to restart a server and grey cloud the subdomain I have it setup on. It’s fixed now!

  8. I want to build a house out of an old school bus (commonly referred to as a skoolie). I have been doing some research and I found the idea of converting a diesel school bus to run on waste vegetable oil from restaurants (which you can do with a Diesel engine). One more thing to add to my skoolie wishlist.
