I'm using the WP Repost javascript tool on twitter (https://twitter.com/guzzzyy/status/861968778439143426). Is there anyway to to change how the image excerpt is centered? https://dougbeal.com/?p=132&preview=true

tantek: so "tweeting not often" is a criterion?
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: "excessive tweeting" is bad per the rules IIRC
#
KartikPrabhu
hence surprised at your twitter locking; all seems very weird
#
tantek
indeed
#
miklb
tantek how do you POSSE your tweets?
#
miklb
just wondering if not using native apps flagged you.
#
tantek
miklb via the API
#
tantek
except tweets with photos/videos I use Bridgy Publish to POSSE
#
aaronpk
just realized he hadn't posted IndieWeb Summit on Facebook yet
#
tantek
is 2017.indieweb.org auth'd with Bridgy so it can get backfeed of a FB POSSE copy event?
#
aaronpk
no, and i dont really want facebook RSVPs to look like indie RSVPs anyway ;-)
#
tantek
that's a good point
#
tantek
then 2017.indieweb.org just as the "ticket URL"
#
tantek
on the FB copy
#
tantek
and maybe in description: IMPORTANT: You must get a ticket from 2017.indieweb.org to attend! RSVPing on FB is not enough. or something like that

aaronpk maybe Loqi's twitter account got locked?
#
aaronpk
just checked, the script had crashed for some reason
#
aaronpk
which is also concerning because normally my polling search finds things as a backup, so i'll have to find out why that stopped too

<!everyone> Any objection to me deleting the Circle CI hook on the mf2 ruby gem? It doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Each push, I get an email saying “no tests”.

... i'm thinking about dropping angular, since i really only did that to apply for a job

... there's like 3 steps to update my site. it takes me 5 minutes to write a paragraph, but 10 minutes to upload it to my site

this is my attempt to get my overwhelming list of projects off of my home page

tegan: i downloaded a new jekyll theme
#
aaronpk
... and started migrating my content to it
#
aaronpk
michelle: nothing to show, but i'm trying to pick how i want to build my site to be more manageable
#
aaronpk
... part of the problem is i'm a javascript developer, and there's a new javascrript framework every 6 months
#
aaronpk
... so maybe i should not use a javscript framework, and just focus on the content, not how i'm displaying it
#
aaronpk
... I used to do wordpress PHP, but wordpress PHP and PHP are totally different langauges
#
aaronpk
... so i'm thinking i will stick with node, since it's javascript and doesn't change every 6 months

eddie I am the JavaScript developer trying to figure out what to do with my site. It is angular 2 front end (messy! my first angular project while learning) with firebase for the database side. I am thinking node.js for the backend and maybe a mysql type database. I am not very familiar with saving data so I don’t really know what I am doing with that.

[michellejl]
I am thinking I want a super simple front end and a more or less stable backend that lets me focus on the content of the site instead of always worrying about the shinny newness of what framework I have for the front.
