@changelog Oh please, PLEASE do another quiz game. I’ve not laughed so hard for a long time.
🤔 Programming: Fun, interesting, creative. Also: pays well.
Community/family: Relentless, exhausting, emotional. Also: pays nothing!!
✏️ I keep finding myself in jobs where I can see a lot of things going on, and I feel a responsibility to make connections.
A quick blog post on how, sometimes, the view from the “Bottom of the Pile” is uniquely broad. And that comes with opportunity, and maybe responsibility too.
Oh, hang on Two Factor plugin for #WordPress… what is THIS?
🙄 I've been hanging out on other social medias today. There was ONE interesting post from… my kids secondary school!!! And one REALLY good interaction with someone that I know.
But mostly is was boring, aimless scrolling with occasional conspiracy theorists.
I get back onto Mastodon.
Two amazing, funny, interesting posts shared in the first few minutes.
I genuinely appreciate the good stuff on other socials, but gosh it's impossible to curate.
Does the fact that wordpress.org now supports security keys and passkeys mean that this might actually be coming to the Two Factor plugin soon?
I dunno. You pop back to the old place for a bit just to share a thing and…
🙌 Played this a few days this week. Like Boggle. Quite the challenge!
I played https://squaredle.com 09/29:
*77/77 words (+30 bonus words)
📖 In the top 17% by bonus words
Play streak: 2
😄 Ok. It’s not perfect. But it’s here.
For all you The Rest is Politics listeners: Trip Bingo!
Randomly generated bingo cards to enhance your listening.
If anyone listens to The Rest Is Politics… what funny/interesting things are frequently said or frequently happen on the show?
I need a decent list.
I may or may not be making a “Bingo” game to play while listening! 😉
📈 Just realised https://caniphp.com was featured in Jetbrains PHP Annotated newsletter.
That explains the influx of PRs!!
Just added me a “/now" page. Might be of interest. Or might not. Complete vanity.
Every time I go and do stuff on omg.lol I'm reminded of what a brilliant little place it is. Long may it live!! @prami

Wow. Tech friends…
Setting up your parents’ Smart
Energy Tariffs and configuring their solar inverter is the new “making your parents printer work”.
Only it’s about 15 times harder.
I don’t know what to say about this other than this is a podcast where a person interviews ChatGPT (v4) about AI.
It’s fascinating in both direct and “meta” ways. Worth a listen, if only to hear what ChatGPT thinks about itself.
A note/content warning: this podcast is about … hmm … let’s call it “spirituality” but “faith”, “church” and “Christianity” may all apply. Some may think it heretical.
I present it neutrally as “a fascinating thing”.
Interview starts at 19:13
Apple Watch users… how do I:
– Have a morning alarm
– That sounds (audible) on my watch
– While wearing my watch while sleeping
– But in silent mode (all other alerts are haptic)
I’m honestly so confused. About to buy a simple loud clock for my bedside!!
1. Slack just feels so much like _work_ doesn’t it?
2. They’re not trying to sell you anything or discuss their course or product. It’s not even sponsored.
3. I dunno. Just. Feels like where the geeks should be.
I’m too old for Discord. I can barely post a Gif. But I can chat. So…
Maybe see you there?
A pile of swear words that describe how I’m feeling right now.
<Insert a list of your own favourites. You can well imagine how this week has gone.>
UK Climate Policy. It’s so important and I’m so angry that it shouldn’t be content warning’ed, but I’m sticking with convention.
Wow. Rishi Sunak on full-on robot mode. This should be an issue that evokes so much passion and energy. But he here is droning with the zeal of a piece of toast.
Also: if you have to do THAT much pre-announcement explaining, then it has to be a bad thing and you know it.
Sad for my country.
