Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Serially is the key word in here. Simultaneous desktop sessions from multiple users is a no-go, right?

I'm pretty sure this is in breach of the macOS SLA, right?

"If you provide the same username and password as someone logged into the device, the session will be shared. Otherwise, a new desktop session will be created."


Section 2B(ii) of the SLA:

"b) by multiple individuals on a single shared Mac Computer that you own or control. For example, [snip] or multiple students may serially use the Apple Software on a single Mac Computer"

Just blogged about my experience with switching to the keyboard layout. No matter what, keep your hands and wrists healthy.

Was writing up an article in readiness for the re-launch of the fitness blog. Remembering I needed to import the old posts I uploaded the json file.

Forgot that the bloody thing also imports blog settings, titles, tags and other stuff. Changed loads of stuff back to how it was. What a noob move...

No content lost, thankfully. All the images in the published posts have gone to hell though.

I generally don't try and push my idea of diet and the way we eat on to people but living a plant-based life can have a truly positive effect on you, your health and the world we live in.

I'm really looking forward to seeing David Attenborough: "A Life on our Planet"

Although I have no doubt I'll be crying like a child at some parts that show the way we currently treat animals 😢.

I am a total noob at . I have no idea what it is, why it's good, etc.

Do you remember the movie? Would you please boost this toot?

I finally got around to installing Wiki.js for the internal knowledge base. It wasn't the smoothest ride, so I documented my process for future reference:
