Looking at the covid numbers in Massachusetts (https://covid19.healthdata.org/united-states-of-america/massachusetts), our state has made enviable progress in reducing deaths since mid-April. However, we are somewhat plateaued at where the disease was April 1. Put another way, without PPE and state-mandated closures, MA could see covid deaths soar back to its peak levels in about 2-3 weeks.

Man, I really have come to love using Bear as a text editor on iOS. There is a lot of competition for editors on the desktop, but Bear feels just right on mobile. Excellent work, Team Bear. #blogging #bear

Dear Jason, Long-time reader; first time commenter. I am concerned that your algorithm may cause integer overflows even on 64 bit hardware. Are you single-handedly attempting to move the industry to more quickly adopt 128 bit CPUs? I'll take my answer of the air. Thanks.

So, you **can** create a text file from Dropbox directly! But it’s not a great editor. Good, perhaps, for quick, dumb notes, like this one. I’d give it 3/5 stars for plerd-purposes. As in “editor of last resort.” #plerd #editors #dropbox

Indie web suffers from sparse of documentation. These efforts are welcome. Next, we need better tools for non-techies. #indieweb

Twenty Five Thousand. That's the number of tweets and tweets I produced for Twitter since 2008. More than enough words to have written a book instead. I am appalled.

As a further commitment to slow thinking, I backed down the cadence of my plerd to check for new posts/notes every 3 minutes. There is nothing that urgent that I write that cannot wait for three minutes to publish.

I just don't know how exciting this note is. Also, there is just too much formating with the in-reply things. Strip that, jjohn.

I have whim installed on taskboy.com. The installation was straight-forward. Configuring apache’s reverse proxy was more challenging, since I do not do that often. #plerd #whim

Start using this https://goaccess.io/ to monitor web traffic, which is what I used to do in the late 90s with perl and other tools. This version has a cute ncurses interface and is written in go. #unix #cli

#bear is working out well for my plerd needs. Actually sprang for a subscription (renting software is terrible but it’s a naughty world and devs gotta eat).

This plerd fork turned into a substantial rewrite. What I feared would be a week of work is closer to that of a month. Still wrapping my head around microformats and web mentions. Mostly there conceptually, but how to implement this with my plerd is going to take some trial and error. #plerd

I regress a little into posting twice on Twitter this week. I REGRET NOTHING #twitter

Not very exciting, I know. But some note had to be first.
