This is superb. Well done, Linus.
I wrote a quick response to Ben Gillbanks' post on why people use #Medium - I think it's still valid today, albeit 2 years after the post was written.
TL;DR - Avoid Medium. 🙂
This is fantastic news, but the pessimist in me can’t help but think that they will still find a way to weasel out of the taxes.
I love Scott Nesbitt’s writing. This is a quick note on my thoughts about his latest musing.
Took the day off work today, been thinking about selling my motorbike as I don’t really get time to ride it (<1000 miles/year the last 2 years). Decided to take the bike out to try and help me make the decision.
Did around 180 miles around Wales, most of it inside Snowdonia. I won’t be selling it, and I need to make more time for riding! 🏍
You guys know this masterpiece from 2015?

My mum: Kevin (that’s what she calls me) you’re the only person I have on blue WhatsApp [Signal] and you don’t message me that often. I’m deleting it, I’ll text you instead.
Me: NO! Don’t text me! I’ll put green WhatsApp back on my phone.
So it looks like I’m back on WhatsApp purely because of my old dear. 🤦♂️
Follow up: You don't need to feel guilty for choosing proprietary software.
If you prefer to use Spotify over local music because it better fits your listening style, go for it!
Should you look for more secure and privacy-respecting alternatives? Sure. But you don't need to develop a cognitive dissonance when it comes to what your preferences for software are.
Do what you're comfortable with, keep an open mind, and try things whenever you feel like something new.
It’s a really shame that Keybase has seemed to have ceased development, I still use it most days though as it’s a great product. Maybe the team will loop back to Keybase once they’re done with Zoom? 🤷♂️
By the way, if anyone has any Lumens hanging around their Keybase account that they don’t want, feel free to send them to me. My Keybase username is kevq 😁
#WordPress is 18 today, so I thought it would be fun to share a screenshot of my first foray into WP, a tech blog called Refugeeks. The site started in 2010, and looked like this for nearly 3 years. 🤦♂️
The design is diabolical, but I thought it would be fun to share. Any of you folks got any design horror stories in your past? If so, get sharing them! 😊
