Published my first somewhat useful and original NPM package today out of a little abstraction I wrote for Kaomoji v2. Still early days for the design of the API but it feels good so far.

Debian is my new favourite OS for servers.

Slack behaviour is broken.

Direct messaging leads to siloing of previously publicly available information and discussions.

As the COVID-19 outbreak forces most companies to collaborate remotely, more people are turning to tools like Zoom. If you’re using Zoom, you may want to be aware of these concerning privacy practices.

How to enforce a code style in your team: Install lint tool, pick widely used and supported ruleset, commit and push, never talk about it again. You have bigger problems to solve.

Wrote a little something about a pointless side project I did a few months ago.
