That little Sega CD add-on is the cutest thing ever.
Today I'm playing with rendering my blog's webmentions as part of my Jekyll build by first caching them from webmention.io using https://github.com/martymcguire/morris and then pulling the json data in to Jekyll as a Git submodule https://github.com/omgmog/mentions -- exposing them as site.data.mentions in Jekyll.
Apparently this will be fine https://docs.github.com/en/pages/getting-started-with-github-pages/using-submodules-with-github-pages
I should be able to trigger a rebuild with Github actions when the mentions submodule repo gets a new push 🤔
Wish me luck! 🙈
I love everything about this. 😍
> Electronic Catan LCD Tiles:
> A collection of hexagon tiles that magnetically snap together to create a Settlers of Catan board of any shape or size. Each tile features a large round LCD and a custom magnetic pogo connector on each edge. Linking up a bunch of tiles creates a position-aware partial mesh network.
Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.
If you will use GG fonts, don't do this
Download that font, and resource it locally instead
I make web stuff all day every day. This is refreshing! 👏

Also I've made some more tweaks to my blog recently, such as:
- Improved Lighthouse score to 100 across the board
- Improved OG data
- Removed all tracking (Google Fonts, Twitter, etc.) with the exception of the Cloudflare beacon
- Added reading time and Webmention counts to the top of posts
- Probably more stuff 🤷
