Saint Agnes - Brother - Live From Lockdown

Link to post Saint Agnes - Brother - Live From Lockdown

for several weeks now I'm listening to the Danko Jones podcast, while I take a walk to catch some daylight and escape the self imposed social distancing hell that is home office. Not only is Danko one of my favorite musicians and his band an all time favorite of mine since I saw them opening…


I made a thing: CoronaDeathToll

(updated: 20.12.20, see below) As if doomscrolling the grim news of a world in a pandemic wasn't depressing enough, today I had the idea to add (yet another) visualisation around the numbers of deaths that Covid-19 has caused.

From Gatsby to Eleventy - Amber Wilson

Link to post From Gatsby to Eleventy - Amber Wilson

WordPress Default Themes Look Changes from TwentyTen to TwentyTwenty

Since the recent WordPress auto update incident left all twenty-* default themes in my install, here's a gif how the look changed over the last ten years… Time flies, eh?

Yes, this seems to work*. O_o See the Pen Image with Background Image (yes you read that right) by Tom (@webrocker) on CodePen. I wondered if I could use a background image for a transparent png I used in a recent blog post, and decided to give it a try and not making a wrapper…
