Fake DMCA Copyright Infringement Notices
I’m getting these fake DMCA infringement notices asking me to download some random file. Two are from a US accounting firm and one is from Netsuite. They stink to high heaven of scam. Do not click and download their link. It is probably a virus of some kind. Going through some of my websites as comments is new, but the methods are old.
I’ll probably add more as they come in. So far from: Mailchimp.com, intuit.com, zoho.com, netsuite, xero, freshbooks.com

How to Add A New Emoji to QQ
I’m on QQ, Chinese social media and messenger, and wanted a different emoji that I could not find. Here’s how I added one.
You’ll need to edit your original graphic. The file format size is 32×32. Save your file in .png so you can have a transparent background. You can reduce the size of the image of your choice, but the simpler the better, as at 32 x 32 px almost all details will be lost. I have sized existing QQ emojis and they are 28x28px or smaller. This is a more appropriate size.

Grav: Putting white space around an Image with CSS
I’ve done it for a long time, so it was just a matter of time before I could figure it out with Grav. With its distinct combo of markdown and HTML I had to find the right combination.
The problem was that once I put up an image with text flowing around it, the text would be placed right beside the image, leaving no extra white space. This is unpleasant to the eye and makes the text more difficlt to read. A mere 10 pixels of white space make all the difference.
