Linux folk, I need to get a command to run when a Ubuntu 16.04 boots up. I've tried different things can't seem to get it to work.

It's just to start a Minecraft server.

Any fish shell users here? I've just started using it on my Mac, I thought all was well, but just went to run a command and it doesn't work. npm install works but grunt etc won't. Just says fish: unknown command "grunt"

I'm looking to book in work for 2019, so if you're looking for a remote freelance front-end designer / developer, hit me up.

I could help you with:
📝 Prototyping, concepts and MVPs
🚀 Front-end development (HTML, CSS, JS, React, Vue)
#a11y and inclusive design

Best ways to get in touch:
🐦DMs open here

Boosts appreciated.

I haven't toot'd much. I got out of the habit when I was over on twitter because of all the noise.

I'm not currently working much, got some bits and pieces of freelance work.

On a break until the new year.

Still need to finish migrating my website to eleventy (

We got a puppy a couple of weeks ago. I know loads of people here love cats but I love puppies too.

This is Bailey. A 10 week old Hungarian Vizsla.

This is smart as heck. What better way to teach folks about the <details> element than using the elements themselves to structure the post?

Hopefully, this neat angle will open up a really handy and more importantly, accessible, native HTML element to those (including me) who would previously use JavaScript.


I have new design systems content I’m working on (workshop + presentation) for 2019.

My calendar is WIDE OPEN next year. If you have an enforced Code of Conduct, care about diversity, and pay your speakers travel + honorarium, I'm super available!

Book me for your events! 🙂

Next, I'm excited to shared with you:

Yoncé, a Bey-inspired theme for Bash-it, VS Code, Slack, iTerm and Alfred.

Put Yoncé all on your screen like liquor*

*Yeah, I don’t know what it means either.

Hello, this is your monthly form reminder:
- inputs need a label
- labels need a for and inputs and ID to link them together
- placeholder are NOT mandatory, if it looks like label: "name" placeholder: "enter your name here" I'm 99,99% sure you don't need a placeholder

I’m really looking forward to speaking at Inclusive design 24 [] this evening. It’s totally free, online and features some amazing speakers.

You can catch my talk at 21:00 UTC, where I’ll be talking about the power of progressive enhancement! You can follow along with the live stream, here [].

And that info is incorrect, what their systems don't like is my TLD - .fyi !

Giffgaff won't let you use a custom email address, they say you have to use "gmail, hotmail, outlook or another well known e-mail" - what a joke.

An always-on mic and camera from Facebook. What could possibly go wrong?

After a long contract (7 months), long for me anyway, I've decided to take a break until next year to recharge the batteries, finish some DIY jobs and get the house & garden ready for winter.

Will carry on working on my personal website though.

Our lives are about to get hectic again! This is Bailey, our 8 week old Hungarian Vizsla.

I've replaced Gmail with new personal domain name, but now I need to replace Google Calendar. Any suggestions?
