Those of us in the EU are pretty worried about it, so I can imagine it's not going to be fun for folks whose countries haven't even had a say in it!

An interesting look at why you'd want to work for a startup, not a tech giant - although not everyone will have the same experience.

Some interesting points in here that reinforce my thoughts about the difficulties of knowing what the right version number should be - although I hugely push for and use SemVer.

Arthur Christmas is such a great Christmas movie - we discovered it maybe four years ago, but it's part of our yearly routine now!

An interesting approach - but I wonder why you'd implement like so (requiring SSH usage) instead of the Systems Manager's run-command https://docs.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/latest/userguide/walkthrough-cli.html ?

A safer way to parse YAML by removing some of the more dangerous parts of YAML parsing - an interesting approach that means you don't need everyone well-versed in the minutiae of the YAML spec!

Since setting up the ability to syndicate posts from my website to other sites automagically the other day, I've been manually ticking the boxes in my posting UI, which isn't the best experience.

So I've now got it to automagically syndicate to Twitter any notes (like this one) or interactions such as likes/replies/reposts on Twitter, so folks still on Twitter are able to see the content I'm publishing to my site, too.

No spoilers:

Just seen Star Wars Episode 9 and damn JJ did it - what a great ending to the series. Expect more when the spoiler embargo lifts.

I'd seen some tweets similar to this and was a bit apprehensive but it was so good. Wanna go see it again!

What do all you lovely #IndieWeb folks use to consume Twitter? I'd like to hook some of my favourite people into my reader but not sure the best way to do it

Just trimmed my site's build/test/deploy pipeline's lifecycle from 10 minutes to about 5 minutes. A fair saving but still not as speedy as I want.

My next job is to see whether I can cache the images on my own infra running a GitLab-runner, but I seem to be having some difficulty getting it running with a Unix file socket rather than a TCP socket - a shame because in the past the GitLab-runner has worked literally out of the box

Well, it's official - I'm on holiday for the rest of the decade 🙌🏼

For anyone having issues not seeing #MrRobot Season 4 Episode 11 in their Fire TV / Prime video account, try skipping through Ep 10 until it autoplays 11
