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'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. 🤦‍♂️
