This morning as I’m catching up on that linking thing I do, the words of a certain cool curator grab my attention. It’s a stream of consciousness kind of thing (I really enjoy) that urges me to visit the linked site. As I enter the site, its style/flavor immediately reminds me of another site I consider to be a classic.
My mind’s in fun mode now and I start exploring Kicks’ linked site. The first thing I encounter is a piece a for piano and violin created by the site’s author, Luming Hao. It’s different – eerie and engaging. Nice. Then I explore the song that inspired the piece, a freeform head-banger that’s most listenable. I’m smiling now, thinking how thankful I am when the surf leads to magical things.
Big problem, though: Beaker (Dat) doesn’t store differences. And TiddlyWiki is one big file. So every time you save, it keeps the old one saved and the network starts to fill with these old copies. And you can easily have a 10 meg wiki—you get a hundred days of edits under your belt and you’ve created some trouble for yourself.
I went a different way with my tiddlywiki after trying the Beaker approach because of the way it handles versioning. When I tried hashbase.io, my little 2mb file was using 70mb of space on the server (and I was only getting started).
This is too cool…, though I had to modify the CSS for it to work for me. What I used:
background-image: linear-gradient(90deg, #F79533 0%, #F37055 15%, #EF4E7B 30%, #A166AB 44%, #5073B8 58%, #1098AD 72%, #07B39B 86%, #6DBA82 100%);
