Hello,

Congratulations!

Your Google Apps domain name, ezmyrelda.com, was successfully renewed for one year.

Yay! I was most definitely worried there for a bit.. It’s fantastic to know that I get to keep my domain for another year.

And linode hosting is turning out fantastic!

Today marks a pretty freaking monumental day for me. Actually it’s sort of trivial.. But I like pretty things so bear with me. I am now able to add adorable little emoji/icons in three different flavors throughout the site using filters. Meaning I can do something like this.

:heart:

as simply as writing stuff like this

Also, the example code as you can tell is a simple gist file served via the liquid tag in the gist file that it shows. Meta huh? Mmmm.. I just love tiny little icons, and elegant terminal based solutions.

So it turns out I had made the 200th playlist on Soundcloud.. Really.. The 200th playlist. Such an oddly even number.. how do I know this? well I was digging around for the correct id when I was linking zmy music to the jekyll page. Zme had overlooked it once before when we were looking through the source on soundcloud.. that struck out.. and then I decided to look at the widget/wordpress embed code and the only identifier was 200.. So I thought zme’d give it a shot and just plug it in. Voila! Anyway.. We also figured how to create correctly titled and formmated post files from a couple of ruby plugins and a single command. So that’s nice..

Zme are very pleased with how this incarnation is turning out.. Not a single build error that we couldn’t fix with a couple of tweaks. Getting ruby and gem versions correct seems to be somewhat arcane sometimes and a little hit or miss.

We are sleep deprived as usual because of throwing spoons at this project, and that will be my reminder to actually throw spoons at our perspective of spoon management and obsession with ones work.
