Tasks I accomplished or ideas I wanted to show off that had more to do with code than anything else.
I wrote a Perl script using utility features in Mojolicious to check all of the links in my Hugo site.
I have ignored my MacBook Pro for a few months. Now my iTunes and Rhythmbox music libraries are out of sync. The Rhythmbox library includes a handful of Ogg Vorbis files. Because iTunes does not support Ogg by default, I will use FFmpeg to convert those files to MP3. For the sake of novelty, Perl 6 is the glue language for the task.
I had a clever idea a couple months ago: to write a blog post detailing how to find recursively find duplicate files in a folder. My technique was good enough: track file sizes, find files that had the same file size and MD5 hash, and display the resulting list. It wasn’t foolproof, but it showed some thought. After spending a little too much time on the post, I realized I had never checked CPAN. Of course there is already a module to handle that exact task.
I want to write at least 250 words per day. This is not a 30 day challenge. It is just something I want to do. I write more than 250 words daily when you count social network posts and chat text. Wouldn’t it be nice if some of those words were organized around a single idea?
Just don’t even ask. I am in a highly fickle phase with the Web site.
