  • “If something is easy to repair, it is easy to construct.”

  • Always worth quoting Robert Ingersoll: “Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.” - Robert G. Ingersoll 💬

  • Unsurprising-in-hindsight: webcams are suddenly sold out all over the place, especially those recommended by Wirecutter.

  • A feature I’d love to see in Slack/MS Teams/etc.: when I set my status to “Away”, change the whole theme of the app (dark, transparent, italic… ¯\(ツ)/¯). So easy to forget to mark myself Available on return, hard to notice a little “away” glyph in the corner of the screen.

  • Just confirming that my blogging-from-drafts action works perfectly in Drafts for Mac, as well.

  • How To Over-Complicate Your First Conference Post - wherein I make things a bit more difficult, and a bit more interesting, for myself. #codemash

  • The video of my CodeMash session, Test-driven Development: Save Your Time, Save Your Sanity, Write Great Code Fast is now available.

  • Writing your own slide-presentation app is a bad idea, even if you really want that one extra feature. Anyway, here’s the thing I cobbled together to deliver my #CodeMash presentation. Do as I say, not as I do (or at least do it better).

  • The slides and demo project from my Codemash 2020 presentation, “Test Driven Development - Save your time, save your sanity, write great code fast”, are up at https://roub.net/pres/codemash2020/. #codemash

  • Unforeseen consequence of building a web app to run my presentation’s slides (long story, it’s doing demo-project git checkouts along the way) - need to come up with a way to export/share the slides. Yay, airplane project! #codemash
