Week Notes 23#39

A few days on my own while Anna was away for work, and some mixed feelings about how Cookie was πŸ˜…

  • Made some progress on my talk for DDD East Midlands next week and then re-reading my abstract and realising I've gone a little off base 😹
  • My Oodie is much nicer now it's been washed, although sad that I'm also needing to wear it, with the weather getting worse
  • Goose Fair has started, so it's:
    • Surprisingly loud, even down by ours
    • Impacted the takeaway options we've got
  • Cookie's rather bashed my nose with an aggressive play, but hopefully will settle down in a bit
  • Saw Blaine yesterday on our walk, who was in his garden and trembling with excitement to come and say hey, but instead just wanted to carry around his ball
  • Had a nice day coworking in town with Carol on Monday
  • Cookie's hurt one of her paws so we've not been on any significant walks this weekend, and have been trying to stop her licking it so much
  • Although he always tries to tell us that his food is empty, Morph's actually been right for a change, so think he missed most of a meal before we noticed
  • Spent the evening upgrading my Renovate instance to the new Community Edition version - migrating from Renovate On Prem
  • A very good Discover Weekly from Spotify, with most of the songs being great choices
  • Tweaked my push notifications service (for Webmentions) to improve a few things
  • Spent the weekend clearing out my tweets with Tweetus Deletus
  • Had a good chat with someone from the Pediatric Cardiac Bioengineering Laboratory at Harvard
  • On Monday's walk slipped quite bad on a particularly mossy part of one of the pavements - Cookie didn't seem too fussed by it, but my arms didn't look great 😬
  • Cookie's been chasing Morph a fair bit, still
  • Cookie's had the all clear from the vet's ahead of this Wednesday's spaying 🀞
  • Hacktoberfest began today, but unlike previous years I've not been rushing to complete it. I feel a little less overly motivated to contribute given it's digital-only rewards, and the lack of scarcity means I'll get the rewards if I can, but it's much less pressing

In dependency-management-data:

  • Spent some time looking into the Mend APIs and chatting about whether I'd be able to build any proprietary extensions to DMD that would build on top of their APIs
  • Noticed GitLab's SBOM support, and blogged about how to use it with DMD
  • Fixed a TODO note in my "getting started with DMD" that I didn't notice πŸ˜…


  • Ahsoka
  • Schitt's Creek
    • πŸ₯°
  • Only Murders in the Building
  • Picard
    • Finally finished it
