Notes

Words about myself, my work, this site, and what I’m learning.

  • A Running Log - Garmin Connect and Eleventy


    Use Eleventy to log Garmin Connect activities on a website and automate the process with Zapier and Netlify.

  • Find Whitespace in VSCode


    Something I learned about whitespace (and new line character) regex search in VSCode.

  • December 27th, 2020


    I stepped outside into the crisp December morning.

  • It’ll all be over by... Christmas


    Slow and steady is the race. Onward to 2021.

  • Project Proposal Form


    Rebuild an old design, a print form, in HTML.

  • The First Weeks of October


    Haikus to commemorate extra time outdoors during the first three weeks of October 2020.

  • Crain Family Ancestry


    How I became involved, the resources I found valuable, and the places I’ve visited in search of a Crain family history.

  • The launch of this website


    The (much delayed) launch of a personal website, joshcrain.io.

  • Becoming a front-end master


    Chris’ readings and exercises to guide me towards front-end mastery.

  • Love Bears All Things


    A year ago for Valentine’s Day I made a couple bears in love. Illustration in CSS and HTML is completely unnecessary—but fun!

  • Yamaha SHS-10


    The Yamaha SHS-10 keytar is rendered in Adobe Illustrator. Created in about 2006.

  • Forsaken


    Forsaken places.

  • Arizona & Utah


    Paria Movie Site, Montezuma Castle, Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon.

  • 140 miles from the Camp Fire


    The Camp Fire began the day we arrived.

  • A Run


    That was the night I planned to run six but instead ended up on a gravel road in the middle of a twelve-mile loop...

I also (try to) write a short weekly update called weeknotes.
