I’m back in London after our wonderful wedding in Taipei, and I’ll be for now focusing on work.

I’ll be working on (our Mastodon instance), but also have availability for work (, ) and commercial . Do get in touch!

After @qyliss ’s thread on ThinkPad hacking I’ve now wasted^H^H^H^H^H^Hspent a few hours researching and watching YouTube tutorials and I am SO ready to buy a used X230 and to start hacking. Where to find the time, though…

If you’re not in my particular niche communities, you might not know about the community that exists around old ThinkPad laptops. But I’m going to tell you about it, because I think it’s awesome!

ThinkPad laptops from years ago are enduringly popular, because they have great support from free software, and they’re extremely repairable.

Not only are new or used parts extremely easy to come by, people are even designing new parts for these old machines, so you can upgrade rather than replace!

Why in dog's name is there a node_modules in my home directory? Seriously got a feeling of impending doom when I noticed it.😩

‪“Five Minutes to Taiwan” is my new progressive electro band name.

Last few days before the wedding and so much left to do. Heading home after working/admin in a cafe after running some wedding errands, and on my phone in Notion to write my wedding vows 😅

Typesetting English and Chinese together is always a challenge, and I always end up going back to Adobe and Google's excellent Noto CJK (aka Source Han Sans &co).

I managed to solve the issue by using Yarn instead of npm to install the dependencies, and using the Yarn-only "resolutions" field: yarnpkg.com/lang/en/docs/selec

Only took an hour of work! I guess this proves the need for docs, if such proof was ever needed: I only have 7 hours of work budgeted for this, and no documentation for getting things up and running, leaving me poking around in the dark, breaking random things in the process...
