Bookmark: Death of Feedburner?
Bookmarked https://perishablepress.com/subscribers-update-feeds/. This post is for any feed subscribers out there.. please update your feed URL if you want to continue getting Perishable Press articles in your feed reader. Again for those in the back: update the feed URL for Perishable Press if you want to stay subscribed. This is necessary because Google finally has killed the once awesome Feedburner service. Jeff Starr I previously wrote about Google’s tendency to kill its services in posts about two services I (almost) never used, Google Bookmarks and Stadia. It now appears that another Google service […]
Bookmark: Url Forwarder and Hypothes.is
Bookmarked https://boffosocko.com/2020/05/24/a-hack-for-using-hypothes-is-to-annotate-on-mobile/. Earlier today, I wrote about how I use the Url Forwarder app on F-Droid to forward URLs to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, primarily so I can save them into my Wallabag account. After publishing the article, I decided to look into whether there was a good way to use Hypothes.is, a social annotation tool I previously wrote about, from my phone and tablet. How it did not occur to me to use Url Forwarder I know not. All credit to Mr. Chris Aldrich for the great tip. […]
Re; South Pasadena relocates local peafowl
In reply to https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/california-city-relocates-noisy-peacocks-180981412/. Now, after several City Council meetings, petitions and an open forum, South Pasadena has become the latest California city to remove the peafowl and relocate them to private farms, ranches and open spaces in the state. The process began on Dec. 2, 2022, and the city is now looking for volunteers to place 10-by-10-foot cages in their yards to aid with trapping efforts. I read all of the complaints about the peafowl from some South Pasadena residents. The birds sound better behaved than a good number […]

Reply to 10 ways to ruin a website
In reply to https://perishablepress.com/10-weird-ways-to-ruin-any-website/. This is a good list of ways to ruin a website from WordPress developer Jeff Starr (see my review of his Wutsearch Search Engine Launchpad). I studied the list carefully to confirm that none of Mr. Starr’s ten complaints are present at The New Leaf Journal. I submitted my own peeve in a comment: Websites that do not produce RSS/ATOM feeds. We make our feeds easy to find because we believe that you should be able to follow our new posts and choose which categories of […]
Micropost on Soundbar and Remote Struggles
I originally published the following microposts about my struggles with a soundbar and universal remote on January 6 and 7 respectively. I eventually wrote a full article on the issue and a follow-up on Bearblog. I originally published the first two posts as “notes,” but I moved from that custom post type to Leaf Buds. However, I wanted to preserve our former content, so you can find the notes as they were originally written here. Note that I removed references to the IndieBlocks plugin that I had used to originally […]
