Animal Crossing: New Horizons would be much more enjoyable for me if it had a feature to highlight the currently-focused ground tile. Especially since picking the wrong tile prematurely wears out your tools.


Just did a major cleanup of my "micropub for static sites" tool, microstat. Includes new configuration options for tags, for better Hugo support!
