There are about 31,557,600 seconds in a year, with about 16,500 of those left in this year, in Japan anyway. May everyone have a peaceful and prosperous 2020! 🎍RC Logr 20191231 191950 - There are about 31,557,600 …

Looking at task management apps lately, I noticed that many have a wiki-like trust of users in the original sense of a wiki, in that they allow most roles to delete anything. 🤷♂️
By the way I am finally done with all the house planning. It has been a real ordeal!RC Logr 20191208 191442 - Looking at task management …

If you need to test webhooks, just make a PostBin for it. You get a unique URL to post to, and you can easily see what the payload content is by entering the proffered URL as the webhook URL. Then you trigger your webhook, and you’ll see the payload show up in the web UI. Slick. 😍RC Logr 20191002 201759 - If you need to test webhooks, …

Today is the 1st of Oct, which marks the increase of VAT tax from 8% to 10% (an easier calculation, at least), and the end of the Japan «pocketbell» pager network. 🇯🇵🗣 In the 90s, you could (and droves of Japanese High School girls did) make use of the interesting «goroawase» or number play system in Japanese right from your pokeberu.
Here are some examples:
- 4649 Yoroshiku (Thank you in advance)
- 33414 Samishiiyo (I am lonely)
- 39 or 999 Sankyu (Thank you)
- 0906 Okureru (Will be late)
- 0840 Ohayo (Good morning)

Here we are in August in Japan, and the heat is here with a vengeance. To top it off, the building has replaced our restroom lights with LED ones, which burn with the LIGHT OF 1000 SUNS. 🔆
The site color palette was selected thinking of blue «月草 tsukikusa», or the asiatic dayflower, and as always I am using Hugo Pipes to automatically generate the css from sass code with color variables that define the color palette for the month.

Today I learned about «Heart Rate Variability» as a general indicator of fitness, after seeing it in Apple Health. If you think about an EKG chart, it is the variability in the time between your heart beats. Higher HRV generally means you can switch from rest to exercise in, a heartbeat. 💓
What is interesting looking at the data over a year, is that for me HRV was generally lower when I was sick, and higher when I was exercising regularly. YMMV.RC Logr 20190719 123054 - Today I learned about «Heart …

Have you ever heard of a «Pasigraphy», where written symbols refer to concepts rather than words or sounds? ࿊ Examples are emoji or, a symbolic language like Bliss symbols. We sometimes use it to indicate meaning or usage in database fields.
For example, fields used for ordering data might use omega Ω:
|ΩP||Pick order.||Order of records displayed in a record picker.|
|Ω☼||Calendar order.||Order for display on calendar views. Orders within a day.|
|Ω○||Select order.||Order for index column item selection.|
You can go crazy with it, but, sometimes might drive yourself crazy trying to remember what they mean, if you use it too much.RC Logr 20190718 175035 - Have you ever heard of a …

It is July already, and this month on «Tanabata» on the 7th, my company eSolia turns 20! 🎊🎋
We are not out of the tsuyu rainy season yet, which is ironic since July is known as the waterless month by the old calendar. This month, I set the color palette on my Logr site thinking of cicadas or «semi no ha» color. When it stops raining, the birds and insects will come out in force.
Technically speaking, I am using Hugo Pipes to automatically generate the css from sass code with color variables that define the color palette for the month.
