I just had to walk out of the office because the three different conversations happening around me became overwhelming. This is your periodic reminder that open plan offices suck.
On the subject of lack of sleep.
I had a bad night’s sleep, and have been awake since the early hours of the morning, so I’m already starting to flag. Today is probably going to be very long.
There are a lot of managerial visitors to our office today —or as I put it to my PM: “there are more organ-grinders than monkeys.”
I snuck a taste of the cheesecake bites I made yesterday, and I’m going to have to make some more because they’re pretty much perfect.
“Dark mode” for this site has been one of those things on my todo list for a while. The in-development theme I’m working on has been built from the ground up to support it through the use of media queries and CSS custom properties — but I hadn’t actually implemented it. After a nudge from reading this post by Jeremy I’ve finally implemented something to try out:
For now I’m borrowing Jeremy’s colours, but I’m planning to tweak these as the design evolves.
My local grocery store has started to sell its own-brand plant-based burgers. I really want to try them, but I’ll have to wait until I’m on an “off keto” cycle, as they’re relatively high in carbs. It’s amazing and encouraging how quickly the newer plant-based “meat alternatives” are becoming mainstream.
After work I’m going to try my hand at making some mini keto cheesecake bites. I ❤️ cheesecake.
Some of the trees across from my office window look like they’re being blown horizontal by the wind, which is going to make the walking part of my trip to the dentist fun.
- Blocked the source page in YouTube
- Repeatedly said I don’t want to see the ad
- Given feedback that the the ad is repetitive/inappropriate/not relevant on multiple occasions (it falls into all 3 categories IMO). It would be great if there was also an option to report as “misleading,” but alas…
I’m really at a loss as to what else I can do to stop having this shoved down my throat whenever I use the app. Thankfully ads don’t get shown in the tvOS app timeline, yet, so it’s limited to my phone – but I’m sure I read somewhere recently they’re already testing some changes around showing ad units in the TV app.
This advert is pretty mild, even if it is scaremongering and misleading, but the next one YouTube decides I must see might not be.
The (metal) Sisters of Battle range has gone to “Last Chance to Buy” on the Games Workshop website. After 22 years it’s the end of an era! I’m pretty sure I have everything I need, but maybe one or two more wouldn’t hurt… 🤔
Roll on the new, revamped, fully-plastic range in November!
This evening has mainly been waylaid by a migraine and neck pain. Normal service shall (should) resume tomorrow.
