Decided to go for it! 💪

I'm currently in the progress of informing my direct colleagues about my choice. It feels like I'm ending at least seven relationships at the same time. 😭

I’m so excited for Mike’s book.

“Welcome to Silicon Valley. A libertarian stronghold at the very end of America. (Literally.) Silicon Valley, and specifically the venture capital firms of Silicon Valley, are mostly run by old white men who read Ayn Rand in high school, thought it was great, and never changed their minds. […] In the words of the late great Ann Richards, they were, ‘born on third base and think they hit a triple.’”

Two ex-colleagues contacted me to join their tiny startup company. I get the freedom to focus on things I deem important, I can help steer and grow the company and the salary is (much) better if they agree with my proposal. But for some reason I feel bad to leave my current job. Mostly because of the people... I know I should not stay somewhere because of the people... so I guess I already made up my mind.

I need some advice. For some reason the toolbar buttons (bold, italic etc) for this online text editor are not accessible by keyboard tab.

There are keyboard shortcuts available (CMD + b for bold for example). I think tab should be available for accessibility reasons, but apparently the creators of this editor have a different opinion. What do you think?

Good excuse to use the new poll functionality.

I can't do anything else but laugh when I read these color variables in our Sass codebase.
It's so bad, it's good:
- $gray-slightly-lighter
- $gray-lighteres

So what makes The Orville so much more entertaining than Star Trek Discovery? I watched most of the second season of The Orville within a few days. I have a hard time going back to Discovery, knowing I will just get utterly bored by most of its characters (not the red haired girl, I like her) and ridiculous plot lines. I'm three episodes behind...

Sunday sysadmin-day. It's beautiful weather outside, but I've been inside and set up Tiny Tiny RSS on my NAS, to replace the external version I run somewhere else.

My "new" speakers are also classics same as the rest of my 1973 set.

But I made em better with bananaplugs and new acoustic foam (1973 foam crumbles to dust when you touch it in 2019).

Now I only wanna renew the front, so that it's not sun worn brown/nicotine brown anymore.

My wife went out the door for 1 hour. So I did what all sane people do. I turned the kitchen into a retro speaker restoration station.

Now the Super Mario 3D World original soundtrack... Much better ❤️

Clicked on 'Less listened' radio in and now I'm listening to Merzbow... 😳

So I managed to set up on my Synology with Docker, made it available from outside of my home, use my own domain, reversed proxied it and set up SSL! Not bad for a front-end developer 😉

Kudos for my marketing department colleagues on letting me implement DNT functionality on the website.

Let's see how long it will last until I have to roll it back 😂

And we're available outside of my home! Next steps:
- link it to my domain
- SSL
- Test apps
- Add family/friends

Woo! I somehow managed to have my local music library symlinked and mounted on Docker on my Synology.
