There’s something really peaceful about being the only one awake at 3am.

Now all I need is to be able to fall asleep 🥲

I wrote a quick response to Ben Gillbanks' post on why people use - I think it's still valid today, albeit 2 years after the post was written.

TL;DR - Avoid Medium. 🙂

Dear god waiting for end-to-end tests is a paaaaaain. And running them in Docker is even worse.

10 minutes to set up; 3 minutes per run *so long as I’m only running less than 3 tests* :blobfoxdisapprove:

I hope I never have to run the full testing suite :blobfoxshocked:

I vastly agree with this from @Edent about names and special characters.

We can throw Welsh names into the misspellings required – Siôn, Siân, Glyndŵr, to name a few.

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

Speaking of block-based themes for

It seems Automattic just beat me to creating a fully block-based theme with nice defaults and it's suuuuper lightweight.

The front page of my blog is now 152kB uncompressed :blobfoxlurk2owonotice:
30 kB compressed! :blobfoxaww:

I love where and are heading :blobfoxheartcute:

I just created an empty FSE-ready theme for my WordPress site, and with ~1 hour of work — all in Gutenberg, no coding necessary! — it already looks passable.

I'm really looking forward to taking this a bit further :blobfoxthink:

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! 😊

Been updating my blogroll. It now includes podcasts and newsletters too.

After a sudden hostile (and/or grossly incompetent) takeover by Freenode tonight, the #qutebrowser IRC channel is now on libera.chat: blog.qutebrowser.org/qutebrows - I urge other projects to do the same sooner rather than later, as long as you can still tell your users about it.

If you're NOT a part of the global rich, not working for big tech, or marginalized in any way, please try and fill this in if you can.
