Day 6: windy

#

Just spent some time improving pst (https://github.com/chrishannah/pst), it now supports drafts and published posts. Example command: pst draft "hello, world".

It’s still only available to install via cargo, so I need to get it on something like homebrew soon.

#

Day 5: serene

#

Quick tip for anyone that appreciates the SF Mono font but also wants the Nerd Fonts icons, someone has created “SF-Mono-Nerd-Font”! github.com/epk/SF-Mo…

#

I forgot to post a photo for the photo challenge yesterday, I should catch up today though!

#

Day 4: foliage

#

Day 3: card

#

Day 2: flowers

#

How has pst got >200 downloads already?

#

Day 1: toy

#

This is what publishing a post using pst currently looks like (it only posts drafts at the moment).

#

I’ve only spent a day writing rust, but I’m already really enjoying it. If I continue with it for a while longer, I want to really understand things like the borrow checker, and more of the rust-specifics that I haven’t encountered yet. But for small/simple command-line tools, it seems great!

#

Come watch me try to play some WoW Plunderstorm www.twitch.tv/chrishann…

#

I’ve just pushed my new mini-project ‘pst’ to GitHub! It’s going to be a simple cli tool to publish posts to Micro.blog, and I’m also using it to learn some Rust. github.com/chrishann…

#

I didn’t think creating a Micro.blog post from a simple cli tool in Rust would be so simple.

#

I’ve never completed a full 30-day photo challenge here on Micro.blog, but I’m going to try and do the one for April. I know there isnt a requirement for a photo to be taken on each day, but I’m going to try and enforce that on myself to make it a bit more interesting.

#

Something I’ve noticed since entering my thirties a little over a year ago, is that I’ve become a lot less interested in both keeping up with everyone elses lives, and presenting my life for others.

My younger self would definitely not understand.

#

Just about to board the flight back to London. Looking forward to normal temperatures.

#

I took a ton of photos at this natural pool, I’ll have to spend some time refining them and building a collection. Which may be a task for the flight back home tomorrowow. But for now, I’ve got one shot that I’m really happy with. Shot with an iPhone 15 Pro Max using Halide.

#

Just arrived at a natural pool. The waves are much stronger than I thought, but at least the view looks good!

#

Just visited another town in Gran Canaria called Firgas. Not that high up in the mountains, but it’s still up in the hills. The centre had a nice plaza, and also murals of each island in the Canary Islands, and also a rather large water feature.

#

Last full day in Gran Canaria today. Driving up the east coast again to hopefully find some more villages/towns and some natural pools. I’ll likely be posting more updates throughout the day.

#

It’s just hit golden hour, so it’s time to go back down the mountain. But in the mean time, I did snap a few more photos of the view.

#

Found a little village called Tejeda in the mountains. Some very nice views as usual.

#

Stopped at a little restaurant on the side of a mountain in Gran Canaria for a quick beer and ice cream. Now on to the next town!
