Shed v2 planning resurrected. Architects have been called. 🤞🤞🤞
Picked up a white Logitech G203. Partly because it matched my keyboard and partly because the rubber grips on my Razer Deathadder were peeling off. It’s a good gaming mouse tho and only $30.
Finished Shigeru Mizuki’s Hitler. A great depiction of how a loud-mouthed, pathetic loser became the world’s biggest authoritarian monster.
An excellent retelling of this moment in history. My biggest criticisms were that the war was fairly quick, especially from an American perspective. The Holocaust was extremely underplayed, I think it would have further illustrated Hilter’s decrepit descent.
@slightlyoff Loved the article, but I'm also a smidge biased against All-in-JS architecture.
I'm also in the camp that believes tools and frameworks do speed up feature delivery to customers. Is that not valuable at all? Or is your answer just "but at what cost?"
What do you see as the gap between why ppl choose frameworks (React) over more vanilla, scaled back web platform tech?
📝 I blogged about using a Worker to create a color cycle animation on the new paravelinc.com homepage https://daverupert.com/2018/09/color-cycling-image-pixels-with-workers/
Recreating that animation effect was a fun and rewarding opportunity.
I read about half of the Hilter book yesterday. It's amazing story telling and the characterization of Hitler as a total loser with a big mouth is really thought-provoking.
Picked up some graphic novels. One on Hitler's rise to power and one on Japan from 1944 to 1953. Should be relaxing reads. 😅
Struggling to find ways to relax on the weekend. Almost any Netflix show or movie I want to watch has violence or cursing. If I fire up the Switch or a game of Overwatch, I have a 5yo in my armpit asking me endless questions. Books are hard to sink into.
So I just read this dumb phone.
Maybe I need a recliner? Or I should blog? Or graphic novels? Or I should draw?

Talked with a neuroscientist at a birthday party this morning. And I’m like “hi i make websites.”
But had a interesting chat about AI and the human brain.
The new canonical.
