@kev after reading this you might be better off with a laptop + dock. Seems like purchasing two machines specifically for the tasks you need it for is overkill. But that also ignores the fun of messing with hardware and building a new computer (at least that’s a part I really enjoy).

I noticed you have an iPad on your desk too. Have you considered using that for the lightweight tasks you use a laptop for?

@nikluz Debian. I use the latest release for all my servers and Debian Unstable (for more up to date packages) as my Desktop.

I love how lightweight and snappy it is compared to other distros I’ve tried for both environments. Pop_OS is probably the most similar to my custom Debian setup. I’m not sure it would be considered noob friendly though

Summary:

Not noob friendly

Bought a set of Comply foam tips to replace the silicon ones on my AirPods Pro. They would often slip out of my ears and I’d constantly be pressing them back in, didn’t matter which size I put on.

In only 10 minutes of using these Comply foam tips they feel so much more comfortable. They don’t feel like they are slipping out of my ear even when my jaw moves while talking.

So far, 300% satisfied with the $30 purchase.

Some of my thoughts on the recent debacle around Matt Mullenweg (#WordPress creator) and the #Jamstack

kevq.uk/wordpress-creator-vs-t

So I wad just talking about domain names and I happened to use smellmyf.art as an example. To my astonishment, this domain was available (it isn't any more!)

But that got me to thinking, "I wonder if eatmysh.it is available?"

Unfortunately it isn't, but the website that hosts it is AMAZING!

eatmysh.it

@tychi I put stuff in ~/Repositories/{username}/{repo-name}

USPOL, RBG, Your Cynicism 

You cannot expect to do good without acting inside the system to triage, and working without the system to force change.

Both of these things matter.

Exercising your right to vote doesn't mean you are supporting the system, it means you are manipulating as best you can from within.

Do it.

Exercising your right to protest, and force change by holding politico's feet to the fire? Just as important.

At this point if you are of the belief that not voting is a good idea, you are either a manipulated fool, or a mouthpiece trying to disenfranchise others.

Get over your ego, and go do both.

I'm not asking you to even like it. But know how you are leveraged, and maximize your free will.

@jan I think the point about that comparison is focused on the technical investment of the JAMstack in contrast to simply putting a cache in front of a stack that’s interacting with multiple other systems. Though this is obviously assuming response time is the only problem trying to be solved.

Personally, the JAMstack is fun to use but I’ve been hesitant to use it for a production site.

@jan there’s definitely a need to standardize though. It’s hard to find the balance of who and how to give more control.

@jan something we’ve been experimenting on in CoBlocks + Go theme is using a standardized set of custom css properties to allow future updates easily. Presets like small/medium/large are much easier apply this.

I do like the concept of a scale factor. Themes could apply their design framework and base values as custom css properties and still be able to dynamically change them in the future.

Custom hard coded values are the problem.

I hate to ask, but here goes.

I'm looking for a role as a #frontend #developer. #Contracts or #fulltime. Preferably #UK where I have previous #remote work ex from.

I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!

My site is rusingh.com and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯

#Boost please?

@fatboy it’s so funny how selfish and self-entitled this article is, the same words they use to describe people using Adblock.

They also refuse to change which is short sighted and ignorant of them. Again, the same words they use to describe people using Adblock.

Poppycock.

@tychi I’m not a huge fan of Thunderbird’s UI. I’ve really come to liking Evolution but wish I could disable notes and tasks within it.

@jan it’s life changing haha! We do this at GoDaddy and I know from experience other hosts do this too (Pantheon comes to mind).

@jan I think the idea behind it is to allow child themes the ability to override it with a similarly named function.
