Week Notes 23#11

A two-day work week, with three days off for my birthday.

  • Had a bit too much of a lie in on Monday as I'd turned my alarm off and slept in until almost 9 πŸ₯±
  • Had some very cute mornings with Cookie being cuddly, and some evenings of Cookie being cuddly. She's turning into such a lil' cutie πŸ₯°
  • With the news about Docker changing how "Free Teams" worked, I wrote a post about using DMD to work out how you use Docker - didn't get much traction on Lobsters/Hacker News, but hoping it'll provide some value to folks. At the very least, I'll be using it at work
  • Made some good DMD changes this week, which I've been quite happy with and have made some good tweaks to the way it works and is used
    • Next step is to get DMD running against my personal projects and maybe some other folks' public GitHub and GitLab repos, so I have a source of real-world data to query, especially if I'm no longer at Deliveroo
  • Had some good attempts from Morph to come into the living room again, he's been staying a bit longer which is good, and not being dissuaded by Cookie barking / chasing him away
  • Finished Superstore - when we were last watching it (in 2021), we got to the last two episodes but didn't finish them. This time we did, and it was a good end to the series
  • Put my headphones onto charge one day before bed, which triggered Cookie to keep barking at my office for some reason πŸ˜…
  • Planned to get a Burg on Wednesday but they were closed until late 😱
  • Got some Doughnotts from my team for my birthday, which were very tasty and appreciated
  • Tom came to set up the hall shelves + coat pegs, and while he was here did the second blind in the living room so things are looking much nicer now πŸ‘
  • Was nice to have Carol and Jonathan over for dinner on Thursday night - it was a bit of a late notice but really glad they were able to come
    • Had a nice evening chatting and chilling
    • Had a good amount of wine, and felt it a little bit the next day πŸ˜…
  • Had a bit of a chilled birthday, feeling a bit down with the pending redundancy news and a lot of not knowing. We'd hoped to have some time away, but didn't feel it'd be a good idea with the shadow of it hanging over us
    • As of 0930(ish) on Wednesday I'll have an answer 🀞🏼
  • Bought Deathloop after Carol had mentioned it on Thursday and been enjoying it so far, although I'm finding it a bit tough on the Steam Deck - when handheld it's hard to see everything on the screen, and I'm finding it tough to play with a controller, but still persisting
  • Hoped to watch The Accountant on my birthday, but realised too late it was on my Amazon account and we couldn't watch it on the TV πŸ˜…
  • Headed out for lunch today at Homemade - without Cookie! - which was nice πŸ˜„
  • Had some great support from one of the Jenkins devs on Job DSL, helping modernise and sort out a few of the outstanding big issues which has relieved a good chunk of pressure that's been bubbling away in the background


  • Unmasking Autism
  • It Didn't Start With You


  • Apex Legends (as usual)
  • Deathloop


  • Superstore
  • My Name is Earl
  • Good Will Hunting
  • Atlanta
  • Ted Lasso
  • The Mandalorian
