Not just if you’re a video game fan—great site design, too.
Zoinks! Goodbye #bootcamp on #macOS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hg9F1Qjv3iU&feature=youtu.be&t=3772
(although actually I'm fairly thrilled by this development to be honest...)
Trying to get #macOS #BigSur working in VMWare Fusion is all kinds of painful. And long winded. And annoying. And unreliable. At least so far. I can't wait for the new VMWare Tech preview... https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/06/23/vmware-fusion-announces-macos-big-sur-compatible-tech-preview
Went to a #virtualConference (albeit months ago...) and finally got around to writing about it... https://blog.quirke.org/okta/oktane/conferences/newnormal/2020/06/17/post.html #Okta #oktane2020 #newnormal
Finally decided to investigate why my raspberry Pi webserver has stopped responding... I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 1635628 - she's dead Jim... :( #ex-nginx
Apple's #WWDC is coming... and apparently you'll want this app https://apps.apple.com/us/app/apple-developer/id640199958 to make the most of it. I'm really excited I get to "attend" this year. (who needs sleep anyway?)
#TIL - I can open a terminal window from within VIM using the :term command - and then typing exit kills the terminal session and takes you back to VIM. Smart!

I have turned this subject into a book: reworked and expanded with more detail and topics. Like my other books, I plan to update and add to it after release as well, keeping it relevant and useful. You can order it on the
Hey #TootWorks - it's been a while... so I left my home office and lived to tell the tale... https://blog.quirke.org/helix/london/newham/covid/lockdown/2020/05/26/post.html
#til - I'd been working with python internationalisation code (trying to remind myself how it works!) and finally googled what i18n means... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internationalization_and_localization -
code is daft (or should I say d2t?) sometimes...
OMG... I can use my Macbook's touch ID as an #Okta second factor... I'm living in the future! ThoughtWorkers - check your Okta settings page if you want to do the same :)
If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed
But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees
