As I’m going to be in a co-working space over the next few months, I set up an Algo VPN today. Took a while to get going (my fault: RTFM!) but was ultimately pretty simple.
WireGuard made setup easy on MacOS and iOS too.
Thanks to @javorszky for advice and help!!
I didn’t say in my #weeknotes, but I’ve been getting myself sorted with PHPCS and coding standards. It’s a little set up to get up and running (Sublime was easier than PHPStorm) but I’m really into it now. I love that it takes away micro-decisions about formatting.
I just used the phrase “being a bit Theresa May about it” to refer to something I’m procrastinating about making a decision over.
I know I’ll sound like a snob but I was a bit sad to only submit one talk to WordCamp London. The thing is, I have REALLY high standards. I had several ideas but only one that I could imagine being interesting and entertaining as a talk.
It’s been SO good to be back on my bike this week. 👍👍😃😃😃
Bring on spring and longer weekday rides.
Actually properly playing with Statamic tonight. A few “huh, really?” moments. But mostly good and the documentation is excellent. The only thing I can’t do (easily) is something that I probably can’t do easily in WordPress either.
Taking my personal site redesign to a bit of an extreme. Will probably reign it in a little as ALL the mono-space is SO hard to read. #notADesigner
Never-to-be-repeated parenting moment.
4 balloons – 4 kids
Me: Let’s have one each
Child 1: I want the pink one!
(Me, thinking: Oh crap)
C2: I want the yellow one!
(Me: this will end in tears)
C3: I want the blue one!
Me (to C4): Which do you want?
C4: The red one!
Heard some stuff about quitting list-making and celebrating successes.
Perhaps to-do app have a “backwards” mode where tasks are greyed out and struck through to show when INcomplete, and revealed and highlighted in black once complete to show “Yay! You did this!”
Second #WednesdayWonders : My family, of course. I’m biased but I think they are the most beautiful, smart, brilliant, funny, creative people I know. Seeing my boy thrive at school is 💯. Seeing my girl dance through life is 🙌. Seeing my wife nailing work + parenting is 😍
First #WednesdayWonders : cycling and exercise. I’ve been injured for a few weeks and unable to cycle to work. I REALLY miss it. Heart pounding, blood flowing through my veins, the freedom of flowing through the world under your own power.
Hoping to be back soon. 🚴🏻♂️😃🙌
I know this will sound all fluffy & Marie-Kondo, But the last few weeks have been pretty…🤔…overcast? I’m making an effort today to focus on what brings me joy & makes me feel alive. Why not tweet your things too?
This needs a hashtag. How about #WednesdayWonders ?
