- I'd been working with python internationalisation code (trying to remind myself how it works!) and finally googled what i18n means... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internat -

code is daft (or should I say d2t?) sometimes...

Is it bad if, when prompted to stand by my - I use that as a nudge to wander over to the kitchen in search of chocolate? 🍫

So... I'm (almost alone) in the office today... and this springs to mind

Happy Holidays all :)

OMG... I can use my Macbook's touch ID as an 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

Yes, I am eating chocolate to counter balance the Diet Coke I'm drinking... what of it? (at least it's not RedBull...)

Blast from the past...


(I reviewed this album for a student newspaper more years ago than I'd like to admit...)

Jury rigged the lights I got at Christmas (yes, I know I know...) and my home office basement is transformed! Who needs daylight anyway???

So, I updated my Mac to and now it kernel panics every 15 minutes or so... :( How was your Thursday?

"auth" is an abbreviation that means "I can't remember whether this is authorisation or authentication".

This never actually happens. My entire on one Zoom call at once! Props to Pawan for being up at 5am - and Sethu for getting on a call at 10pm...

- there are two types of Micro-USB cable - charge cables and charge and sync cables... which explains why I couldn't add files to my kindle...

*Thinks* didn't I have code to do that in our internal Gitlab? And it turns out that not only is it still there, it still works!
