I’ve been up since 6:30 am and all I’ve done are chores. Tidying, washing, clearing, cleaning. 😮💨
Reading through book one of Ansel Adams photography series. It’s mostly practical staff about cameras and lenses. I think I know about 80% already (except large format stuff) so I’m debating do I read it all for the final 20% or jump to book two. I should read it all as why not? There’s also no rush.
Took some XP2 yesterday. I even like the style of the logo.
I remembered I wrote something down last year (well this year in January) about my wife’s birthday. Things I should do better or not to forget. I couldn’t remember what they were, or where I saved them. I was worried it was on one of the various tiddlywiki’s that I’ve had over the past two years and if it’s not in the most recent one then it’s “somewhere safe”. I always have backups, I just don’t know where they are.
I was in 1Writer and saw WebDAV and remembered I’d made a plain text journal over WebDAV this time last year (exactly as it turns out), and there it was. The journal.txt with my notes in it. Now I have my notes, I just need to action them…
I like WebDAV saved files but it’s a tiny bit annoying having to move locations in 1Writer between this blog and the WebDAV saves. I mostly just want one app does one thing. This i my blog app, this is my notes app, this is xyz app… it’s not very efficient, but it does help me remember where things are or what I’m supposed to be doing.
Wondering if I move those files to Simplenote, which has become my default plain text notes app for notes I want to keep private, and just use that. Seeing multiple notes in the menu bar is fine to move between, but navigating up and down folders is annoying. Perhaps 1Writer has some shortcuts or something that can help. I should look up auto backup of Simplenote to my server, then I’ll probably be fine with it. Or I could look for another WebDAV compatible editor.
It also makes me not want to deal with two blogs in 1Writer…and the Wordpress app is quite nice on iOS…😅
