Every single time I pull up a terminal window and begin typing “ssh -l” I feel like such a hacker ? “Morpheus, I’m going in!”
This was a 51 question test. As someone who mostly works in Adobe’s ColdFusion and PHP, I’m not ashamed of this at all.
Completed a rowing workout. It calmed my mind. Gave me focus. Helped me plan my day.
Of course it helped listening to Crazy Mama by J.J. Cale on Pandora https://pandora.app.link/tQQWeeV6jsb
It’s 6am and I awoke with a panic attack. Going to exercise then do some administrative work then spend the day applying for jobs like a machine.
Spent the day nose down in the WordPress codex on a WooCommerce Storefront theme and building a Max Mega Menu into the store. Beautiful plugin. Day of PHP and CSS.
A bout of insomnia left me with only 4 hours of sleep last night. However, I’m caffeinated and focused on getting resumes and cover letters written. Resumes and cover letters are not my forte.
Me: “This will be a productive day!”
Internet: “eh, about that. I’m down right now.”
Today I’m working through applying a Mega Menu to a Storefront theme in WordPress’ WooCommerce.
8.5 hours later… I’m rather pleased with the changes to the site today.
Today is all about WordPress and WooCommerce.
Doing a security audit on myself and decided that perhaps I should update some of those passwords I haven’t changed in 15 or more years.
I just watched “Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes” and despite not speaking Japanese I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great story. Well acted. Great cinematography. And it appears to have been completely filmed on…iPhones! I need to start practicing kanji again. If you watch it, hang in for the credits to see how they filmed some scenes.
My development environment is working again for PHP. Next step: lunch then setup automated testing and deployment.
What am doing? Continuing to work on my dev environment on my Macbook. When I replaced my dying hard drive and upgraded to macOS Big Sur, my development environment quit working. Yesterday I ran brew doctor and actually evaluated the errors. Turns out my Mac was stuck on an update. After cleaning up LaunchDaemons and LaunchAgents (yes, I was running 4 antivirus packages), clearing some caches, reseting some plists, and rebooting, I was able to install the OS update, brew upgrades, and new command line tools. Today I continue to get my development environment functioning optimally as well as installing some automated testing and deployment tools.
Tonight our 12 person crew has a wrap up meeting to discuss the good and the bad of the 14 day trip we took out west that included 4 days near the Grand Tetons in Curtis Campground and 9 days in the back country of the Bridger-Teton Wind River Range that took us to 11,000 feet above sea level and hiking in snow in July.
Today’s book: “Clean Code – A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship” by Robert C. Martin
The people I want to talk to are all gone.
