#WordPress Given the accessibility issues, isn’t the solution to launching Gutenberg at #WCUS to have it opt-in on update/install and with an option to opt back out if you decide you don’t want it?

Which is kinda how I ALWAYS said it should be released?

Friday last week was 90% fighting unhelpful hosting companies and 10% trampolining. I intend to reverse this this week!

I can’t say this strongly enough. ONLY people who REALLY NEED the administrator role in WordPress should have it.

If you have lots of users, open WordPress now; review the list; demote as many people as possible to non-admins.

Given up on my third Fitbit (replaced under warranty twice). They are clearly only designed to last for a year. Back to beautiful analogue!! 😃

Beat the Street, by the way, is a “game” to get people moving. There are 174 “Beat Boxes” all around Swindon. Tapping them gives you points. There are challenges, prizes, leaderboards. EVERY school child in Swindon has a card/fob. Free to play!

Note: I’m under NO illusion that the success of Beat the Street is down to it’s physicality – cards, fobs, boxes, lights, noises, surprises! – and the social engagement. This prototype alone does not make the game!

Things I did last week, on my day off, while my baby napped:

1. My “Virtual Beat the Street” clone now has a back-end and awards points!
2. Press Ups video production!

Gaaah! Honestly feel like this Mojave update is intended to slow my Mac down so I have to (finally) upgrade. SO frustrating. Hope this improves with some app/OS updates soon.

Good grief my Mac is slow after the Mojave update. Used to wake from sleep in seconds. Now takes a minute or two. BUT battery life while sleeping seems longer. Is “deeper sleep” a feature?

Genuinely curious – does having an orange flashing light actually mean that no road laws apply, as this guy who’s 95% blocking a crossing at a busy and dangerous junction suggests?

But also:

My goodness, it’s easy to make a geocaching-/Pokemon Go-type location check-in game.

And:

How on earth do other game (and fitness app!) makers prevent cheating by geeks? Do they encrypt/encode API requests or something? How does no one cheat at Strava?
