Normal work week, nothing to see here. Fixed a nasty bug in django-cast. Having a lot of state attached to the feed instance in combination with caching caused posts from blog A to be served to the feed of blog B 🫢. Big thanks to Niklas for reporting this. Johannes also pointed it out and, to add insult to injury, suggested I switch to his static site generator for blogging. If there's any truth to the sunk cost fallacy, it's too late for me now. That ship has sailed. Managed to release an update for django-cast with some additional fixes. Notably, I had to pin “wagtail < 6.1” again because I found out that the audio and video chooser are now broken, and fixing them seems quite challenging.

Over the weekend, I went to watch a kids’ bouldering competition because of reasons.
