Jesse's Website

I posted these to instagram and I can't help but share the autogenerated alt attribute in the img tag:

I'm dissatisfied with spreadsheets on phones so I thought I'd start learning how I can use javascript on a webpage to do my most common calculations for me. hurrah

I've been learning Spanish for the past month or so using good old duolingo. I thought it would be cool if they had a public api to pull my profile stats and post them here live but it seems it would be harder than I would hope.

This URL shows my progress but it requires authentication but it's something.

First code written on the mac mini ๐Ÿ˜

tell application "System Events"
repeat 1000 times
click at {950, 755}
end repeat
end tell

Well worth the hike! ๐Ÿ“ธ

I should have had marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers to complete the experience ๐Ÿซ

Glad we can breath again today!

I finally learned how to poach eggs. Yes, it was delicious. No more ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ˜Œ

It's already 2 months in to 2023 and I can't believe it. I had a quite the career change last year and I'm just settling in now. This year I'm focusing on important things like reconnecting with old friends.

Much like how I disliked the bloat of wordpress, I also donโ€™t like how bloated mediawiki is.

I think Iโ€™ve learned enough of javascript and sql to build something similar for myself.

I would start with a blank page, the home page. Additional pages would only be able to be created if itโ€™s linked from another page. This enforces organization and prevents dead links.

On a single page, each paragraph would be considered the smallest โ€œunitโ€. This enables stronger searching with sql queries. Instead of returning a full page with a match, it would be easier to return which segment of the page that matched.

Using javascript I would make the pageโ€™s content and the html forms be dynamic. It definitely wonโ€™t be as advanced as Mediawikiโ€™s VisualEditor but it would be similar.

I would make it so that if I double-tapped the space between paragraphs, a new textarea would be inserted in-line, allowing a new segment to be added to the page. Tapping away from this area or hitting the return key twice so as to end a paragraph would save the textarea to the db in a post action. To maintain a fluid/desktop like feel I will not reload the page but use javascript to replace the textarea box with a simple p tag.

I would not re-invent the wheel and adopt markdown. So to create a link to a new page I would put a word in square brackets. This would be rendered as a link (to a page that would not yet exist), after saving the segment it would render as a red hyperlink or blue if it already exists.

Editing a segment would be the same, just double tapping the segment (paragraph). Javascript would remove the paragraph and replace it with a textarea of the same size and content.

Itโ€™s another idea and it may never happen. But it sure would be nice to have it for studying this CMLTO refresher course ๐Ÿ˜‹

Just discovered robocopy, another robust built-in tool for windows. Wish I had known about it before ๐Ÿ˜”


I've practiced quite a bit of php. Now I'm practicing html with a tiny bit of javascript with help from here
