  • I’m back to work this morning after a weekend of junior golf for my oldest. He finished 16th out of 80. Not having played the course before and the really challenging conditions on the first two days gave him too much to do on the last day of the competition. Onward to the next competition!

  • I love this printable habits calendar by Ira Zayats. Customisable for multiple habits and months. Also, being printed means you can pin it to the wall or fold it into a notebook.

  • Nice sunset tonight.

  • Working from the garden this afternoon was somewhat more productive than I thought. Fresh air, a single screen, and only enough space on the table for my laptop, mug, and notebook. I think I’ll be doing this more often!

  • Managed to snag a couple of notebooks from Atoms to Astronauts. These were discounted as they had “build imperfections” but I can’t tell the difference from the first notebook I got from them.

  • I have a second Github account that I wish to use with co-pilot in VS Code, but it seems that VS Code does not allow multiple accounts when using this extension. Considering a second text editor now as the only option to do this. Does anyone know if Nova has extensions for GitHub and co-pilot?

  • Some wonderful colours over the skies of Paisley tonight.

  • Back at Blairgowrie for Ethan to compete in the second round of the SGF Foundations Trophy. He’s tied for second place, so he’s looking good to qualify for tomorrow’s final two rounds.

  • Ordered the Boarding the Tantive IV set for the wee yin and picked up the Tales of Space Age set and the Mos Espa Podrace Diorama for myself. The Lego budget is blown for the next few months!

  • Spent the day updating a Bash script at work for one of our deployment processes. A nice change of pace from what I’ve been doing through the week, but also a great chance to learn something a bit different from the regular list of programming languages I use.

  • If there’s one timeline I love scrolling through, it’s Elk, the Mastodon web client. A timeline focused on the centre of the screen with additional options to change its appearance and navigation. I love the Zen Mode toggle as well. Perfect for quickly zoning out the rest of the UI. ❤️

  • Feedbin has added a few new changes if you consume newsletters using Feedbin including customisable newsletter email addresses and a whole new domain for these email addresses. Nice!

  • Back to mid-week golf with the boys! Big yin is studying for an exam tomorrow so it’s just me and the wee guy out on the course tonight.

  • The Airshow integration with Feedbin might just be the nudge I need to move from Overcast to Airshow. There’s nothing wrong with either app, but the ability to listen to podcasts in my feed reader might just be the game changer.

  • I can’t remember a wetter, colder, greyer and more miserable spring than the one we’re having right now in the west of Scotland.

  • Just finished watching The Flash. I don’t get why it got the negative response that it did when it was released. I thought it was really good.

  • Trying to add a change of scenery to my work week.

  • My MacBook Air’s battery life is starting to wane when it’s unplugged for most of the day. I didn’t think I would notice it this quickly. It is over a year old now, but I really thought the performance of the battery would have been better for longer than this.

  • My early morning walk finally yielded a wee photo opportunity.

  • I really like the re-design of kottke.org.

  • I finished flooring the last of the rooms yesterday. The wee yin is chuffed to bits with his bigger room. No more major home projects now until late autumn. Weekends are for golf now!
