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