    I've been liking Darebee for the past 11 months. I also like /r/bodyweightfitness. I combined the Darebee style with their minimalist routine to create this: https://i.imgur.com/s0zeceq.png.

    Add a bit of cardio and it makes for a neat routine I think.

    I'm working on a static site generator for my programming project documentation. My goal is for the repos that use it to not include any dependency. It will just be a docs folder and markdown files. Then the CI can take that and generate the site for GitHub Pages.

    I've identified 3 types of documentations:

    • API for the public facing API. Function signatures, etc. (Might be nice to support versioning so previous API versions can still be read.)
    • Tutorials for teaching how the project can be used.
    • Articles such as design decisions, changelogs, etc.

    (Maybe example projects can also be useful, but that probably doesn't belong in the doc?)

    In practice, the API for my doc generator will just be the folder hierarchy. Markdown files in the tutorial folder would be compiled in the tutorial section with the tutorial page layout.

    Perhaps pages in the posts folder can be added to an rss feed. etc.

    My goal is for the HTML generation to be invisible.

    There's no public repo yet while I get the plumbing working.

    I started this project today: https://github.com/Apostolique/MotivationTracker.

    The idea is to set a goal. Every day that you achieve that goal, you get to highlight the day. It makes for a simple motivational daily wallpaper. I got my inspiration from this kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/simonegiertz/the-every-day-calendar

    Right now my project looks like this (I randomly highlighted days): https://i.imgur.com/Fqt9qUG.png

    Along with what others have said, I really like that it's only ~20 minutes per episodes. I find that the 20 minute limitation per episodes has a pretty big effect on a show's pacing. I'm starting to see more and more live shows with that running time and I think it's great.

    One Piece has a lot of depth. The first 4 seasons (whatever that means) are on Netflix. It takes a bit of episodes to realize that depth. At first you enjoy the ride, then the story starts to sink in. Here is a good meme about One piece: https://i.imgur.com/Somx4.png

    Since you said Mad Men, then my real recommendation would be Uchuu Kyoudai / Space Brothers. It's about two brothers that want to become astronauts. The story is rather realistic and the characters act like real people.

    Otherwise some other good ones: Hyouka, Violet Evergarden, Chihayafuru, Attack on Titans(Not the same depth as Mad Men, but really awesome story buildup with story elements planned from the start.).

    I'm seeing a lot of conflicting information about doing that. Apparently screen readers will say a lot of useless information when a nav contains a list of links. I'm basing my work on Tailwind UI which doesn't use that, you can see an example here: https://tailwindui.com/preview (check the code on the first one for example "Dark nav with white page header").

    But I just tested in the Lynx browser and this is how it looks:

    I'll try using a list.

    (I think a documentation website should work well with Lynx.)

    I'm currently making a docs website, I can give you a link to it when it's ready. (Should be soon, the main thing was the menu, the rest is just markdown pages.)

    tbh the only thing I couldn't do with css only is keyboard trapping. When you're in that mobile version, you could tab out and reach the rest of the page. Haven't found a way to solve that yet. Most likely I'll just solve that with JavaScript and consider it acceptable.

    For sure, games are a good way to learn about the world, but if they teach you wrong things it does affect the way you think. You end up with badly calibrated intuition.

    I got my site to work without JavaScript the other day. I'm also learning about accessibility. I'm finding the web to be incredibly complicated so it's nice to simplify things a bit.

    The way I think about it, by itself data doesn't have any value. You need to process it. The more you process it, the more value you can have. When you anonymise user data, you remove some information. If you didn't need to remove that information, you could process it even more to get more value.

    There's an article here where they put some numbers on that data: https://www.supermarketnews.com/retail-financial/kroger-banks-burgeoning-sources-revenue.

    Actually, if the data isn't anonymized, companies can get a lot more value out of it.
