Even though I’ve read all the “spoilers”, I’m still excited for today’s iPhone X announcement. Time for Apple to shine.

I’ve got a new (or split test) slide-out bottom nav in Facebook. May be start of trend more suited to taller phones like the iPhone Pro/X/8?

In my 28 years as a Gooner this feels like the lowest ebb. Even with George’s bung you felt the Club’s stewardship would see us through.

Manager tip: I’m finding Next Meeting, a simple macOS menubar app, very useful to keep me on top of 1:1s, catch-ups and other events in my work calendar.

Multi-room music from Amazon Echo now enabled. Handy. I’ve got two Echoes and now considering adding a Dot.

Deployed my first bit of @vuejs code, swapping out some messy jQuery/Mustache. Surprisingly easy. A+ would hack on it again.

I’m halfway through @laracasts’ free @vuejs video tutorials and really enjoying Vue’s lightweight approach:

Favourite bands/music colliding: Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) covers all of Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque.

I’ve been working on a WebSub hub called Promulgate. It’s fairly basic and although it passes the WebSub.rocks tests it needs a bit more polish. I’ll probably also add background processing via Sidekiq so that publish requests aren’t blocking.

I love Sebastiaan Andeweg‘s new day page with an icon summary of his activity that day. And his Reacji facepiles are also very nice. 😍 Plenty of inspiration for some changes I want to make to Transformative.

I know of a superb graphic designer looking for his next role in the Windsor/Berkshire area. DM me for details if you’re hiring.
