I’m going to eat the whole thing.
There’s the trusty bucket of sand.
Day 6 of COVID
I’ve been in bed this whole time. It looks like maybe I’m done with the fever, according to Apple Watch, so maybe I can start doing a bit more. Our weather is terrible, so it’s no problem to keep taking it easy.
@help I got some errors after using the new Book Goal feature in Epilogue on iPhone. I clicked on my Book Goal and used the Post button to automatically create a post. It didn’t post and I received various errors. I’m using your Arabica theme. Fixed it, I think, by deleting the Book Goal plugin.

My German grandfather pronounced aluminum as “a-lu-min-i-um,” giraffe as “gi-raff-ee” and garage as “ga-ra-gee.” We all loved this about him even as we teased him about it. Here pictured with my also beloved grandmother.
I slept so well last night that I must display it.
To whom do I minister? My beloved husband and my cherished cat. And perhaps to the dancers at the local contra dance, now that we are restarting. Woodcut by Fran Tolman.
I am not exempt from the lure of a beautiful cafe drink, in this case, matcha latte.
I want to share some grep pride and also write things down for when I need it next time.
I have a new gig where I’m teaching online project management courses for another company. They give me the slides and a delivery guide, but I’m on my own for figuring out what I want to say. I’ve already delivered 3 classes and thus have figured out what I want, which includes displaying the slides in my notes.
I’m working on a new course which has 214 slides. I wanted to save some typing by setting up the structure in advance.
First step, Excel. I typed “Slide 1” and “Slide 2” in adjacent cells and then let Excel do the rest of the numbering out to “Slide 214.”
Thence to BBEdit. I did a couple of greps but the best one saved the Slide number pattern and then pasted it back in with the Obsidian markdown link pattern to transclude an image.
Here’s the match:
And here’s the replacement instruction:
The last step was going to Powerpoint and using their export goodness to get a resized JPEG for each slide, luckily this functionality is built into Powerpoint. I copied the resulting 214 correctly named JPEG files into the directory I use for Obsidian attachments, then pasted the text from BBEdit into my note, and voila, 214 placeholders in Obsidian including the correct slide image. I feel brilliant.
I can’t also show you the cute little slide pictures in Obsidian because the content is proprietary.
Woke up to a power outage #adayinthelife

I figured out how to put my iPad above my iMac, a la @Burk. I’m running Sidecar in this example, where I’m running Zoom on the iPad while I attend a webinar. This gives me my entire iMac free to do everything else I want to do.

Woke up at 4AM so went for a long, dawn walk. #earth #mbmay
