Last week I moved Tweetbot out the dock on my iPhone and replaced it with Micro.blog. Haven’t looked back since, a much nicer community to interact with. I’m still checking Twitter but mostly for design/sports news.

Firefox is becoming my favourite browser to develop websites in. The new CSS Grid layout inspector is excellent, reminiscent of InDesign in its display and so helpful in helping me to understand how the new layout stuff works.

I really like the idea of Micro Monday, kind of like Follow Friday on Twitter but better. For my first contribution I’m suggesting Colin Walker, his posts are interesting and his contributions to the community all warrant a follow.

I’ve seen a few people on Micro.blog using a thing called Quill to post to their sites. Intrigue got the better of me so I’m giving it a try.

Testing out the new @micron Micro.blog app. For a beta it already has some nicer interactions than the official app, just a bit less finesse. Good so far though.

Finally giving MarsEdit 4 a try, I used to use this app all the time. The new version seems really at home on the newer macOS versions.

Today has been one of those design days where everything felt rubbish. Hopefully when I return tomorrow there’ll be something in the pile worth developing.

Woo! Finally. The Seattle Seahawks are playing in London this year. I need to get tickets! 🏈 #GoHawks

Went to bed early to read, on feeling tired I turned off the light to go to sleep. While drifting off my mind wondered to a project I’m mulling over. I now have an idea jotted down and am wide awake.

Can’t quite get over the Nottingham Forest win this afternoon! Such a good all round performance, hope we get a good tie in the next round.

I’m really tempted to move my blog away from WordPress, custom theming it is such a pain and I can never find an off the shelf one that does what I want. I wouldn’t know what to use instead though, nothing is quite as connected as WordPress is.

This first week back at work after a good break over Christmas has been really long and hard. I’m sure most people find it difficult to get back into working, but it’s just felt much harder and more draining than previous years.

Great stat from my Dad. Today is the only day in history when every adult was born in the 1900’s and every minor born in the 2000’s.

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means, God with us).”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭1:23‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Happy Christmas folks. Hope it’s a day full of joy. Jesus is here!
