I’m reminded of my daughter, whose utter delight when riding her balance bike is expressed out loud, repeatedly: “I’M DOING IT!”

Sometimes I think that *I* should celebrate what I’m doing this way.

Not out loud, of course! But we should delight in what we CAN do & ARE doing!

These little prompts in my planner/journal are sometimes cheesy and not relevant. But I think the drip, drip, drip of daily positivity does have an effect over time.

TIL: Safari is SUPER fussy about parsing dates:

September 4 2018 10:40:00 ✅
2018/09/04 10:40:00 ✅
2018-09-04T10:40:00 ✅
2018-09-04 10:40:00 ❌


(Note: IE is the same, but Edge gets it right – come on Safari!!)

Worth saying that no, none of this is difficult work. And yes, I’m building a simple custom CRUD dashboard.

It’s time consuming, but I’m reinforcing the #Laravel basics to get them into “muscle memory”.

Church satire is a niche, but The Ship has a high profile within it and has, over the years become important to many people.

A lot of this project was behind the scenes and was about people rather then technology.

It’s a big change. We worked hard on it. I hope people like it!

I can now say: It’s been a privilege to work with the Ship of Fools team on their new website, launched a few weeks ago at https://shipoffools.com/

It seems like a simple WordPress magazine site, but there’s some custom Gravity Forms workflows and a tricky content migration too

The #Gutenberg update seems to be presented as “advanced” users wanting a simpler interface, with the implication that less advanced users want a more complex interface? I really don’t understand the logic.
