Huh, this is pretty cool in the Brave browser (yes, using it this week). A now playing bar for a YouTube video/song. Neat!

This graph shows how many times Gluon posted a "this promoted content was viewed" on the Discover timeline. You can see that little nudge at the beginning with the Twitter takeover news.

It's really humbling to see that it grew over twice the size over a few weeks! ❀️

πŸŽ™ #46 - Sometimes I get hung up on stuff. The past me was dumb. Retro thing going.

Abstract Development

I've been working on a few updates to Gluon and I talk about slowly catching up with an Android release for those also. It's harder than I wanted because the past me was a little bit stupid.

A glimmer of hope for Sublime Ads? It's still at $0 MRR. Yay!

Next steps for Sublime Feed. Learning, learning and learning.

I explore just 3-rd party apps, change my background and go a tiny bit retro.

Added a new CMS toggle to my site.

Basically hides slightly "I don't follow mainstream and have strong opinions" posts from my feeds and they stay only on my site. Basically what I wanted... because my site still is my own journal in a way.


My slightly intoxicated me remembered I pre-recorded, and edited, a podcast on Monday. What is wrong with sober me not releasing it? Pffff.

Came across Dev Fonts. Pretty cool to look and test all the different "coding" fonts.

Sometime early 90's me πŸ––

Beer required right now 😕🍺

Preliminary URL feed lookup checker for Sublime Feed. Happy this works. Onto the next task πŸ€—

Are there any good short articles on how to describe the profession of software development to someone (or a partner)?

For example giving examples what happens when you get disturbed etc.

I tried explaining to say it’s like trying to write a book.


Racetracks in the skies. (Refuelling aircraft all day).

Watched some highlights of Google I/O this morning. It's frustrating to watch, just like Apple "keynotes". Same "we think you are all children so we'll use these specific big keywords". Is this an American thing, or just corporate speak?

*sigh* 😞

πŸŽ™ #45 - Taking it slow. Exploring.

Abstract Development

Sublime Feed now has a login and registration page and stuff that goes around it.

Although I wanted to make this a one week challenge I decided to take it slow and get it right. At the end of the day I just want something that works well.

Then I explore why I'm favouring Laravel over Ruby on Rails... perhaps it's just me though.

My laptop wallpaper at the moment, tiled. Looks totally rad!

Rocking out Retro style 😍 Was testing link pasting and other bits.
