  • Nothing much happened. A work week, a lazy weekend. Installed two games on the XBox – The Division 2 and some old WRC game. Enjoyed both of them for a bit, then they turned into work. Might not be much of a gamer at the moment.
  • Went on a short walk covering all three countries here. Didn’t make it all the way to France due to the wind being extremely cold on the bridge over the Rhine.
  • Bought and wok-ed bok choi. That is pretty easy and very delicious. Should do that more often.

Until Spotify has the On the Floor at the Boutique albums this shall do.

  • My internet at home isn’t very fast and yet somehow it still feels faster to upload a file to the cloud than copy it to my NAS.
  • Turns out the ten-years-challenge photo from a couple of weeks ago shouldn’t be the first picture someone sees of me. On the other hand – this has been my only photo on Tinder for quite a while and the few women who liked it are objectively pretty great.
  • Every time I go to Cologne I feel less interested to ever live there. Given that I’m there for work roughly once a month, it will be interesting to watch when I actively dread even going for a few days.
  • Health hasn’t been great this week but that’s what bloody winter does to you.
  • I closed the circles in the fitness tracking app on my watch on every day of January. Let’s see if this continues in February and if I manage to write the blogpost about it that I have in mind. Both chances are roughly 10% yes/90% I’ll get bored with it.

hi

I look at my blog archives and this is the fourth or fifth try to get something like a weekly blog post started. This time with the great weeknotes format that I’ve seen for the first time on Alice Bartlett’s website. I’ll collect little bits and bobs that I might have tweeted in the past in Drafts and will turn them into these little brain dumps roughly once per week.

  • What really sparks joy at the moment: the Bialetti Mini Express. It is very fun to watch an espresso come out of the little fountain.
  • Cheap Virtual Machines are both a blessing and a curse. A curse because they make me think I might be able to do dev things, a blessing because when I inevitably mess one up, I can just shut it down and start up a new one.
  • If you have a custom taxonomy in WordPress and you want it to still work in WordPress 5 you have to add them to the REST api with the show_in_rest parameter, which is a bit dumb. I also didn’t manage to move one of my meta boxes to the sidebar, so now it is dangling underneath the editor, which is also a bit dumb.
  • Slowly is a joy but it turns into proper work at some point. I might have reached a point where I have to disable getting messages from new people.
  • Comics RSS is the best. I quite enjoy getting a couple of cartoons in my feed reader every day.
