I’m back on the “Learning React.js” train.

Learning basic components and composing.

And I can’t help thinking:

We’ve really not come that far since Dreamweaver, have we?

Well. I joined Twitter 15 years ago today. It was a good run. But I’m barely there now.

Not only is Mastodon the social media I want in terms of function (chronological timeline, no ads, etc). But the clean slate has meant I’m scrolling less and am enjoying other things more. Reading actual books, games, etc.

I’m sad. But I’m also very happy.

Flippin No Mans Sky keeping me up again. I’m no real gamer. But this thing is a delight to just explore and build and work through the missions. Feels almost mindful. I could just fly across weird scenery all day.

Oh. Interesting. It’s not just me that had Twitter notifications for junk/spam stuff turned back on without my permission.

Way to make the platform attractive!!

I’ve written hardly any new code in my job as “web developer” in January.

There’s been:
– Audits
– eCommerce admin
– Email marketing operations
– Code review
– Project management/tracking
– Security operations

But virtually no virgin code.

It’s nice to have a varied job. But I miss it!

It occurred to me today that, without an algorithm recommending people, it’s hard to find people to follow here.

So be sure to boost and mention people. Including…
especially?… the little people who don’t have many followers but who do have interesting things to say.

Perhaps is really important again?

Cripes. Finally watching Moana for family film night. The animation is crazy! Fabrics. Dancing. Water. Fire. Sand. A zillion flowers and leaves.

Incredible.

Also…

Is there not a domain service that groups things together and lets you bulk-renew with one annual payment/price?

I'd LOVE that.

(I'd also probably hate it)

I'm book keeping. I have a lot of small invoices from Cloudflare for domains.

They make is SO easy.

Do you know how?

1) They email me the invoices so they're in the same place as MOST of my other invoices and don't need me to log in.
2) The PDF's attached to the invoice are named "cloudflare-<year>-<month>-<day>.pdf"

You have no idea how much these stupid little things matter when reconciling and uploading receipts!

I love this post from @rhyswynne about video games.

I'm not a big gamer, but having recently started playing a "Big Proper Game" I TOTALLY see gaming as entertainment and art that we should be allowed to indulge in and enjoy.

Why delete the Twitter app?

I have more than 3,000 followers over there. That's important and valuable. So I want to keep posting and engaging at least.

But deleting the app is a vote. A signal. A voice. I'm a single user in an ocean of others. But maybe it counts for something.

2023-01-19 22:28:37

No more third party apps. Well, I'm actually deleting the Twitter app from my phone then.

Sad times.

Will check in on desktop occasionally.

End of an era. Twitter literally changed my life in so many positive ways.

I’m still a genius.

Lifehack time.

I got a water flosser last year. Which is great for cleaning your teeth.

But today I realised it’s basically a miniature household power washer.

I just used it to unblock the plug in my bathroom sink.

In seconds!

And gave it a clean too.

Amazing.
