, by Manic Street Preachers, is 26 years old this year, and my brain can’t process how that makes me feel. I listened to that album on steady repeat when I found it in my teens… The Holy Bible
It's possible to think Apple’s App Store is bad and in serious need of reform,
and that Epic are also in the wrong and being hypocritical at the same time. It's not an either/or situation.
vaguely, rings a bell, but it’s more likely I’m getting it mixed up with rel-payment.
“Docker Makes Things Easier, And Other Lies They Told You” – the title of a future memoir.
There's some proper “war in heaven” type weather out there right now. Some of the most frequent lightning I can remember in a long time, and lots of big, booming, thunder. The rain sounded like being next to a waterfall for a while.
This is under our kitchen table. This is not our cat…
When the PM and Scrum Masters wanted me to get an area of development into shape and on-track, I hope they were ready for the sheer avalanche of Jira tickets and stories that would entail…

For example, you can't initiate a new post from the share sheet (say you want to share a link from an RSS app, or something), which is about as basic as it gets! Opening the app from the launcher and starting a new post works, but it's extra friction if you just want to fire off a quick post. There's really no need for it to be like this, and I can't think of any good reason for it.
Why do some developers really hate exceptions? Sometimes it feels like I'm the only one writing and using them…
I hate that the internet seems to have made people so conspiracy-minded. Or at least amplified it. Oh, something innocuous happened? Must immediately assume it’s due to some really bad thing, and immediately denounce whoever I think is involved…
No.1 Son did well in his school results for the year. Four B’s and a C, which is a very good bounce back from the disaster he had last year. He's actually looking forward to going back next week!
