Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦 Hope it’s a good one, eh! 🍁

I still fail to see what benefits arise from shortened variable names. Why is "currPag" preferable to "currentPage", "btn" preferable to "button"? Without context, I'm guessing what the author intended, and this only makes verbal discussions about it all the more difficult.

A handful of my superpowers:

* I always sit on the second sock when I sit down to put on the first.
* I always check the time at 12:34.

But what happens if my first superpower ever fails? Does my day shift enough to make me check at 12:33? I'm terrified to find out…

Overjoyed to be celebrating the greatest milestone of my life today. Eight wonderful years with my best friend, girlfriend, partner in crime, and love of my life, Rachel. Stoked for the next byte!

Late night coding means I’ve managed to create a clear division between my website’s various post types. And alongside that, I’m now using NewBase60 for my shortened URLs, which happens for each of my posts automatically. 😌 (repc.co/t4yV1)

I’m clearly cruising on a Chrono Trigger vibe because, again, I need to share some music by some unquestionably-talented musicians, @reubengingrich@twitter.com (reubengingrich.com/). But how can you not love “Secret of the Forest?” youtube.com/watch?v=alW3hvc3Vi

Switched my main browser from Chrome to Firefox this week. Can’t say I miss anything in particular. Only gripe so far is having to change my muscle memory for keyboard shortcuts, which I’m sure will be a quick transition.

This is seriously amazing. It deserves way more recognition than it has; @ContraReloaded@twitter.com mesh together some incredible talent and synergy. youtube.com/watch?v=pYgQEjcosP

Sadly, I won’t be able to attend, but if you’ve ever been curious about content ownership, IndieWeb, or new ways to tinker on your website, Homebrew Website Club London is unbelievably welcoming and inspired me a great deal. Highly recommended event! hwclondon.co.uk/meetups/201812

I gave a lightning talk in 2016 about writing readable and maintainable code, and @DvBerzon@twitter.com is doing some fantastic research in this area that really intrigues me. I’m eagerly waiting for the next phase of research and results! howreadable.com/

I un-linked my Facebook account from Spotify a little less than a month ago. So here’s my year of music ☹️

Super pleased to say that I just gave a short presentation about to my team at work, and I didn’t butcher the explanation too badly, so everyone’s on-board! Feels great to be a part of this community and welcome new folks in. 😄

Been looking forward to Pig's Ear Beer Festival since last year. I'm in heaven.

At long last, I’ve managed to add the ability to edit my existing notes through my Micropub endpoint, and given my track record of totally making no mistakes, this is a good thing.

Listened to Hardwired, a new EP by @mitch_murder@twitter.com, just about all weekend, and I can’t recommend it enough! Check it out if you’re into punchy 80s synths mitchmurder.bandcamp.com/album

I’ve made an average of 1.498 commits/day to my website over the last 5.5 years. ~670 of those commits contained “fix” in the commit message. Do with that information what you will while I continue to endlessly chase my own tail.

After basking in my 5th-level Sorcerer’s newfound ability to turn himself *INVISIBLE*, I wrote about part of my most recent project, BloodBuilder, a character builder, and how I went about using Liquid to convert to/from Roman numerals. chrisburnell.com/article/numer

I’ve sat down with three developers this week to help them diagnose some errors, but as soon as I sat down the errors mysteriously vanished. Anyway, hit me up if you want a quote for me to come sit next to you. Cause of my, y’know, expertise.
