Micro

On the Mac, Outlook will ship your email without prompting you when you use cmd+enter to send. It's weird, but that sends a shock through me each time. No prompt? You just trust me to do the right thing like that?

Option + double click on a corner. OMG! Thank heaven for this. Most complicated way to maximize a screen I've ever seen, but ok. It works.

I'm trying to enjoy this Mac, I really am, but it's just so, so hard. Nothing is where I'm used to, and everything requires dongles.

“Dad?”, my son, 7, asks as he approaches. Next to me stands my cup of coffee and hidden behind it lies a piece of chocolate. He cranes his neck a looks directly at the cup. Gandalf in my head: “Is it hidden? Is it safe?” - “Dad, the pad needs charging”. The radio stands next to my cup, and behind it lies the cord to the iPad. He’s building the Lego Boost robot and the instructions are only in the Boost app. Technology almost cost me a piece of chocolate today. What is this world coming to?

You know your workday was non stop, when it's almost over, and you never got around to turning on some work music (not trying to hubmlebrag or anything - just saying).

According to a random person on the internet, Bob Dylan once said: “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night, and in between does what he wants to do.” I like it! (The article's main point, however, is that it's better to know a lot of things, rather than excelling in one. An idea which I also like.)

When Houston announced Dropbox on Hacker News in april 2007, he commented: "a linux port would be interesting for maintaining small web sites or web apps -- instead of using scp/sftp or equivalent you could just modify the files on your desktop and have them synced to your web host." And 11 years later, that's exactly what I'm using it for! :)

This not one of those happy days. Not a horrible day, just ... an iffy day.

When I worked at an ad agency more than 10 years ago, the Creative Director would blast Rick Ross’ Hustelin on his speakers each Friday. We were so avant garde (In reference to these current events)

I still find meetings to be a poor way to reach conclusions and decisions.

My free NextCloud service shut down without notifying me :/

04-11-2018

I actually wanted to use NextCloud, but there no daemon. I could run sync every 5 minutes, so .. maybe I'll change in the future. Dropbox was a simple quickfix.

Hey, I can edit text (including markdown files) in the iOS Dropbox app. That's new since last time. What a nice surprise.

04-11-2018

Finally installed dropbox daemon on my web server. Now I can edit, move and delete markdown files on my PC and have them sync to the server.

Why are all enterprise solutions so darn slow!?! Time is money, people! Developers aren't cheap. Waiting 10 seconds for every view change adds up.

Testing after releasing to production - that's how I roll.

Follow up: I very, very, very, very rarely luuuuuuve things on the internet.

Oh, if your like button has a heart on it, then it's not a like button, but a luuuuve button. There's a difference and you should care!

Maybe a span function, like this: /micro/0-100 that will generate a list of posts from 0 to 100. Maybe I'll just solve it using JS to grab posts from the database and insert them into /micro when you click "more".

I'd like to add an archive function to my microblog. Or a "see older posts" link. Or something.
