Kind notes

Very excited to be hosting Lorna Jane at this week's PHPMiNDS talking all about OpenAPI - hope you can join us to understand some more about how you can better document your APIs! More details are on the PHPMiNDS website, phpminds.org

Hey @StarbucksUK do you do any cross-browser testing on your website? I spent 10 minutes waiting for Firefox on mobile to load your menu, then going onto Chrome instantly worked - this is not cool! There's more in the world than Google Chrome, and a company your size should be able to do their due diligence and build sites that don't just break based on another browser in use

 Note

It turns out that I'm the sort of psychopath who grates cheese long side first 🙀

 Note

Has anyone's #Alexa recently stopped playing #Spotify? Ours has been infuriatingly crap recently and are now a useless waste of money that won't do their one job, so we're instead playing music through our phones 🤷🏽‍♂️

 Note

Very excited for the #IndieWebCamp Micropub pop-up session today - come join us to talk about the open standard for CRUD functionality on web tooling https://events.indieweb.org/2020/07/micropub-pop-up-session-kGMIMOXFUdBn

I'm super excited to announce that I've been promoted to Software Development Engineer 3, and next quarter I'll be leading a new team as a Tech Lead (on the Individual Contributor track) 🎉🙌 https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/07/09/new-job-title-who-dis/

 Note

#Morph racing through the house and into the back garden at the sound of birds chirping is especially concerning 😬

 Note

Was in a really good position to get an early night - kitchen was sorted, I'd been for a walk, and just as I was heading up, I thought I'd check a couple of things on my desktop. 3 blog posts later 😴

 Note

Has anyone used #GoogleCloud Functions with a custom domain name? I've got a project I'd like to be hosted on my domain (for ease of memory) but can't see if there's any way aside from hooking in Firebase #GCP

 Note

Signed up for #DisneyPlus, tried to use the app to log in, nothing popped up to say how to use it, ended up having to type out a 32 character password on the TV 😬

 Note

Just got an AWS EC2 that had an IP address ending .0 - I didn't realise that was possible?

 Note

Hey @BarclaysUK do you do much cross-browser testing? I've just had 3DS fail multiple times when using Firefox, but then succeed on Chrome - pretty frustrating tbh.

Made worse as @eve_sleep then doesn't handle the error gracefully

 Note

Just pushed a fix for #MeetupMf2 that meant the cache was not expiring, therefore new events wouldn't show up for you - sorry! The fix itself is now documented at https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/05/29/evict-spring-cache-schedule/

 Note

#ApexLegends crashed and when it rejoined I didn't get any other XP cause I had "0 kills/damage" 😥 did at least get some for the duration, I guess. Shame as I was in the final 2 squads!

 Note

Second random outage on my Scaleway server that hosts my analytics server - I guess, after putting it off for about 2 and a half years, I need to finally bite the bullet and move to Hetzner

 Note

Waking up to a blaring house alarm, being rudely awakened by the lights at full brightness, and then more house alarms? Yay for a power cut

 Note

#Java friends testing using #RestAssured, you may enjoy my article https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/05/18/rest-assured-curl/ which can help you convert its logs to curl requests, for cases you need to do some manual testing, too

 Note

Trying to write three blog posts simultaneously isn't helpful. Got to focus on Week Notes, then my post-deploy changes, then one that I'm pretty happy about for Rest Assured!

 Note

We're learning about a large migration Richard Paul did for thousands of domains to Let's Encrypt certs, fronted by HAProxy at tonight's #PHPMiNDS - quite a feat!

 Note

One of the reasons I love having #Matomo analytics on my site? So I can find out which companies are using my blog posts, from all the internal URLs showing as referrers 👀
