PR merged. I guess I’m now a WordPress Gutenberg project code contributor! ? https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/4690
This was nice to realise. Had my free NHS health check today (he shows his age!)…
“Do you do any exercise?”
“Well, not really. But I cycle to work as often as I can, so I guess that works out as 40 mins every 2 or 3 days on average.”
I’ve just realised that while “normal” means “the usual thing”, it’s also used in geometry to define a thing that is perpendicular to the original.
So it means both “the usual thing” AND “a thing going in a totally different direction”.
ARGH. WHAT’S HAPPENED TO ME!?!
I keep doing:
$str1 + $str2
to concatenate in PHP.
Does anyone else, when writing CSS, want to use a variant of BEM that works out as BME? Is that allowed?
e.g. can I have: search-form–inline__input ?

Is it just me that hates buying stuff with the Stripe JS modal box thingy? I’ve no idea where my data is being sent. What’s my protection here?

Business idea: after-school/holiday clubs for introverted kids. Books. Lego. Video games. Puzzles. Board games. Individual treasure hunts. No group activities. NO SHOUTING!!!!
How do I explain to my boy (6) why it’s not appropriate for me to paint his face so he looks like Mace Windu?
Finally watching the news from America. I am SO cross. How can Trump stand up and say “your pain is our pain…we’ll do anything we can do” and NOT crack down on guns. As the senator said: people die – children die – because of their inaction.
I can’t do ANYTHING at the moment without disappearing down a rabbit hole.
Trying to: update portfolio with screen grabs of projects
Rabbit hole: found a Chrome bug with built-in screen-shotting when using vh units! (https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=761136)
Is there a way to eat popcorn that doesn’t look like you’re trying to eat something twice the size of your own hand?
Is it bad that, even though I’m a geeky coder type, I find blockchain and crypto-currency unfathomably boring and have taken very little interest in it?
I feel like I hear more about it from marketers than from real tech people.
It’s nothing more than buzzwords to me right now.
Oh, gah. I’ve been neglecting my Micro Blog.
Here are some catch-up posts…
