GHDR Reboot 025: Pagespeed and Sketchmaps

Friday, September 2, 2022.

My sleep patterns are still very erratic, and was only able to fall asleep around 6AM despite going to bed at midnight. I slept until 11AM, finally got through my "wakeup routine" by 1PM. Surprisingly, productivity hasn't been too bad! I've gotten the following things done before 4:45PM:

  • Figured out the "response image serving" to further improve my Pagespeed Rating for a typical page.
  • Added extended caching expiry and cross origin rules for the web fonts I'm now using, which also inproves Pagespeed.
  • Finally added direct urls to the updated entries page, which helps me find what I most recently worked on.
  • Added some help for excerpts and exclude from collections to the default "today's journal page" and "new topical page" command, so I don't have to look them up anymore.

While this is a pretty good day of achievement, the sleep issue is still troubling. I wonder if the adderall is keeping me up longer because I tend to take it later in the day, so as today's experiment I drank coffee instead to see if there is a difference in my night-time tiredness with this and adderall. I noticed then I was not able to fall asleep, my brain was still holding thoughts together pretty well. When I finally woke up, though, I found it very difficult to hold continuity in my thoughts.

So where was I in the other work of (looking it up) defining the overall strategy and goals and constellation and piles? I spent 30 minutes pulling it together into this rough sketch:

I'm pretty excited about this because it incorporates a lot of things into a single visceral interactive model, but I'll let it percolate overnight and address it tomorrow.
