We’re picking up a Shopify site that was put on hold for a little bit, and I’m pleasantly surprised by a few things I’ve come across. The pause might have been blessing in disguise for the site on the whole. The dev tools have progressed a bit during the hiatus, and I’ve come across a Sections workaround that might 🤞 give a little more content flexibility beyond the homepage.

After VVORK: How (and why) we archived a contemporary art blog

Just came across this 9 February 2015 Rhizome editorial. I’ve browsed VVORK a bit before, but I suppose I hadn’t really thought about it’s status or longevity as an archive.

The General Synopsis from the Shipping Forecast issued by the Met Office on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency at 1100 UTC on 18 February 2016.

Couldn’t find the shipping forecast on the Met Office DataPoint’s product list, but I did find the relevant XML feed.

Just pushed an update to the colour JS on piperhaywood.com. The HSL colour has been looking pretty muddy recently, partly since it’s an orange-y hue this time of year, but mostly because sunrise and sunset weren’t being taken in to account properly. Before, the lightness value changed gradually between 12:01am and midnight. Now it looks a little more “sunny” in the daytime. Will need to keep monitoring the min/max values, yellow could be problematic.

Finally updated my website to include information and links for a few recent projects. Sam and I worked together to redesign the site. In return, I helped him move his domain to sambaldwin.info.

I’m quite excited about the colour of the text and favicon. The hue, saturation, and lightness are calculated according to the season, temperature, and time of day where I am.

There’s definitely a couple of issues to sort out, will get to those soon.
