Have you seen my stationary scissors? They seem to have moved!
How have I not seen “Up Goer 5” before? A Saturn 5 rocket labelled with only the ten hundred most frequently used English words. Amazing. https://xkcd.com/1133/
Great thing about having an actual blog: posts from ten years ago still turn up in long-tail search results and get commented on. It’s amazing!
I should add that I was very grateful to have my kids babysat so we could have some time out at the flicks. It was fun and very enjoyable and relaxing!
Not been to the cinema for a while. Gosh, it’s just one long series of dark patterns designed to make you spend money on anything but watching a film. Surprised the toilets were free tbh.
Product idea: an app that crowdsources the ACTUAL start time of movies at the cinema.
(Business model: cinemas pay you to not publish the times for THEIR cinema)
I have seen “The Last Jedi”. I think, overall, it was a bit too random. Or maybe there was a ton of stuff that I just didn’t get.
As Facebook lowers reach of un-paid page posts, Facebook actually becomes LESS relevant for me. Seriously wouldn’t miss it right now. Enjoying the micro.blog and blogging community again.
Product idea: hirsute-friendly event admission wristbands.
Oh, and RESULT! Today I modified a webpack config, and I actually almost knew what I was doing! And I made it do something useful! ???
So…more on WordPress Gutenberg I’m afraid. Where I’m at with it as a developer and business owner:
This sums up my feelings on “Investing” in BitCoin
“Investing means buying an asset that actually creates products and services and cashflow for an extended period of time.”
I want to use my money to create value
There’s really not much else you can do. Clever people are working to fix this. You’ll need to trust the experts and just run the updates when they come out!
So until you buy your next “car”, there’s not much you can do to fix the source of the problem. The usual good-security rules apply:
– Keep software/apps up to date
– Don’t install apps/programs from places you don’t trust
– Avoid dodgy websites
– careful what you click in emails
I’m resident tech person for many, so…about these processor issues you’re seeing in the news: These are issues with your “hardware”. It’s like having a design flaw in the engine of your car that causes it to leak oil. The real fix is to buy a new car (or replace the engine).
Wasn’t sure how I was going to fit my little video course UI onto mobile, but I think this is a neat little solution that didn’t take too much CSS.
(Note: Don’t know if this GIF will upload to the micro blog properly…)
I’m really, really, definitely no designer, but I’m trying to build a little dashboard for watching the Laravel videos and tracking progress…IN Laravel of course.
I hope the colour-change-when-watched thing is considered slightly clever. ??♂️
Finally recorded the last of my WP to Laravel videos yesterday. Phew! Just some editing and polishing to do. I hope it’s useful to people.

I think I now get as excited about using Trello as number geeks get about using Excel. Hmm…
