Poo talk 💩 

So my youngest son just pops into the study as I'm settling down for a day at work...


Actually made me cry with laughter. What a kid! 😂

Tomorrow is #DeleteWhatsAppDay! 🚮 Despite WhatsApp’s delay of its privacy policy update, many users have decided to take a stand for #privacy and leave the controversial chat service on the original deadline of February 8. ✊

Right. Been sitting on this for far too long.

I offer for your perusal a critique, of sorts, of a laudable movement, but one which I now believe to be both target blind and exclusionary, and that, as a consequence, I don’t want to devote any more of my time to it.

Completed my site redesign finally, it's not perfect, but I like it.

If there is one mistake I've made on my tech journey these past few years, particularly after a career in WordPress, it is to assume that free software communities are "better" than other software. The amount of toxicity and exclusion I've seen in FOSS often far surpasses even the worst corporate players.


We’re out there 10 minutes - just enough time to get enough dirt off the cars to have to finish the entire job otherwise they will look ridiculous- and the boys complain they’re cold.

Mum brings them in for warm drinks and so I’m stuck outside cleaning them (and freezing) on my own.

I hate my life.

My sons: “Daaaaad can we get the water gun out and clean the cars?? Pleeeasee???”

Me: “No boys. It’s -5c outside. It’s too cold.”

Sons: We won’t be cold! We will be fine. PLEEEAASSEEE???!!!”

Me: “<sigh> Okay...”

So we wrap up and head outside. Guess what happens next...

Think positive.
They give you time to unpack and inspect the other parts, assemble them with all necessary attentiveness and coffee breaks, double-check connections, position cables neatly, clean the case, tidy up the workspace and prepare for the great moment when the final part comes in.
This will be the most beautiful machine you ever built.
Don't forget to fill the fridge with enough beer to celebrate.

Re-vamping my blog currently using by @kev and

Zola is just blazingly fast.

I don't write a lot atm but the is going to start next week to hopefully kick things up a notch.

@tootapp there seems to be a bug where the little DM bubbles don’t disappear and actually lock up the entire app when opened.

Welp, it looks like I got something up and running, I dont really have a domain or anything, but this will do for now, I guess, thanks to all of you who inspired me for this, and also to @kev and his epic guide, wich I followed
It has an rss feed :D

I FINALLY managed to find a GPU at a semi-reasonable price. New PC upgrades start next week hopefully. To be fair, it’s pretty much a complete new system, I’m just not telling my wife that. 😁
