Releasing software is such a dopamine hit for me. It makes my day no matter how small the feature is.

I didn't realize that when GitHub said they'd be shutting off HTTP Basic Authentication that they also meant App Keys. That really sucks.

I've had my static blog for so many years. It amazes me that I'm still happily using the code I wrote all that time ago. It still works, and it's still powerful enough to do nearly everything I've asked of it.

How many of you out there would be interested in a book about building quick but powerful SaaS products in Python/Django from start to launch?

I spent way too long browsing Twitter today and it was not good for me. iOS’s Screen Time feature helped me realize I was wasting my time (I limit my Twitter time).

Poured myself a drink and switched it off.

Fact checking is not censoring.

I hold these two opinions:

  • Social Media platforms hold immense power in our society and are (probably) too big.

  • The President is a fool who’s been allowed to skirt harassment violations on Twitter for years.

I am back to my old keyboard...

The streets were once public spaces, let’s do that again.

San Francisco plans to offer sidewalks, streets, public spaces for business activity

If you lack context for my reasoning: it has to do with the fact that 100,000 people have died and that number is still climbing (fast).

We’re making progress, don’t screw it up.

Eating outside I can (maybe) understand, but inside? Hell no.

I personally won’t be eating at a restaurant (inside or outside) for some time yet.

I genuinely do not understand how people are comfortable eating in a restaurant.

And yes, that means that my entire programming career has been on one of two keyboards, both at work and home (I have multiple K750s). I have had it very good.

It's amazing how good you can be when your keyboard is always the same.


  
   sonicrocketman

I have used the same model of keyboard for 6 years (either the keyboard on my Macbook Pro, or the Logitech K750). The Logitech adapter no longer works reliably on new Macs, so I'm having to move to a new keyboard.

I am not enjoying the transition.

I can't believe that Migration Assistant managed to bring over even my janky blog engine and Python 2. Well done Apple.

I'm live from my new Mac!


  
   sonicrocketman

I've only ever used Migration Assistant to move between my Macs. It's always been a seamless experience.

Anyone out there ever had problems with it?


  
   sonicrocketman

Migrating...

My new Macbook is here!

Life as a web dev is full of constantly encountering errors on other people’s sites and diving into the dev tools to figure out why.

How do normal people use computers?
