Today is a wonderful work at home day, maybe i'll take a early morning stroll before work starts. Bar that its just another Monday morning.

Good morning from a very selected view out of my office window, a few seconds before I was blinded by the great fireball in the sky.

Working at home means you can sit around in t-shirt and joggers all week, but actually getting jeans on to leave the house feels good.

Very tempted to try Fedora on my Surface Pro 6, but at the same time worried about destroying my workflow. I’d love to go back to a Linux desktop soon, maybe when I’ve made some more sensible hardware choices.

Good morning Fedi (and Twitter), Its finally Friday! Just 8 hours to get through before you can sit back, relax, and do exactly the same you've been doing all week...

Thinking about a 4k monitor, 24" or larger, but its been a good 6-7 years since i've last bought a monitor. Any suggestions? Ideally with DP and maybe USB-C if the price is reasonable.

The thing getting to me the most about COVID, is the lack of boardgaming i've been able to do this year. Pandemic Legacy Season 0 is around the corner, but it feels irresponsible to get the gang together to play it.

I'm very quickly realising that the issues with work I have are nothing to do with the office or the commute, but everything to do with the job itself. I'm still feeling apathy, tired, and disenfranchised even being away from the office and setting my own workday.

Things I despise about Dell 11th Gen hardware: iDRAC6 crashes at random times. R710 declaring ITS FAN TIME at 11pm isn't great.

Silly pet project of the day, a 90s style web board. Will this ever make it to prod? *shrug*

After spending what feels like hours trying to diagnose my Hue sensor "not switching the light on", it turns out it was, just that the brightness was set to zero 😩

Its been a very quiet month on the Etsy store, a 70% reduction in orders. I'm having to dip into saving now to make up the shortfall on my workshop rent.

So its took over an hour to update the firmware on a Hue switch, I get that Zigbee is a low speed mesh network but still... 😴

It took me just under an hour to balance my accounts today, I really need to keep on top of my spending a lot more often than once every 2-3 weeks.

A new record, only 14 days after sort of posting my new email address online i've started to receive spam. They're getting good these days, but it means i've got to install avamis now on

Say it ain't so! The Windows Terminal 1.1 release finally fixed all of the Unicode oddities I was seeing using Toot TUI and en_GB.utf8. Woop!
