    Awesome example of communicating with child processes via pipes in C https://jineshkj.wordpress.com/2006/12/22/how-to-capture-stdin-stdout-and-stderr-of-child-program/

    I know that C is old and that many aspects of the language seem to be lots of trouble compared to some of the newer, fancier languages; but, somethings about it seem so elegant and simple. For example, creating pipes for child processes.

    I really enjoy the exercise of trying to write one’s thoughts. It certainly leads to being able to express oneself better. I really need to write more!

    For those of you that use CMake, there are some nice variables for platform independent static/shared library suffixes: ${CMAKE_SHARED_LIBRARY_SUFFIX} and ${CMAKE_STATIC_LIBRARY_SUFFIX}. There are also prefix variables too!

    I have literally programmed all day long, 12 hours. I consider that a success!

    @manton Not sure if this is a bug with micro.blog, but when I imported posts where the .u-url was relative to my blog, then the links that micro.blog provided were relative to micro.blog (dead links). With absolute urls the links point to my blog just fine. Thanks for micro.blog!

    The key to debugging is checking your assumptions every step of the way. What makes it hard is that there can be so many assumptions along those steps.

    I have really been enjoying writing my site using hugo. The syntax is fairly straightforward, and things start to make sense pretty quickly.

    My site has support for https now! It is literally so easy with @netlify + @letsencrypt. Great job!

    I really enjoy the flexibility of using the IndieWeb standards provides. Use which ever tool is best suited for what you are looking for, and if there isn’t a tool for the job then you have the specifications to write it yourself!

    This is definitely my second real micropub post. Many hours of work to get to this point! Still haven’t decided if it was worth it, but I am starting to think that it is.
