Around this time last year I had toothache. I went to the dentist. They told me that there was nothing structurally wrong with my teeth and that I was probably grinding them in my sleep due to stress.
On May 11th 2021 my toothache disappeared.
That is a true story! If it’s not a good reason to end this infernal project then I don’t know what is.
You're already reading this though, so this isn't the year it finishes. Read more

It's been hard to summon the energy to write this year and for a while I was strongly considering posting "This blog post intentionally left blank" instead.
However, it turns out that some people are keen to read this thing even though there are already plenty of previous posts for them to enjoy. Read more

Around six weeks ago I was chatting to Rachel about the "old days" of web development. At one point in the conversation I described the tradition of the May 1st Reboot.
It had been a long time since I'd thought about the reboot but when I first started learning web development it was an exciting occasion that I awaited eagerly each year. Read more

Still annual. Oh yeah.
Though this year I'm actually a day (and a bit) late. I would have been on time, but yesterday I was riding my bike, reading on trains and hanging out with excellent people. Next year I'll be back on schedule. Promise.
A quinquennium of blogging.

Yup. It appears that I'm an annual blogger. I didn't even know that was a thing. Four years in a row, not bad.
I had a plan (the almighty pattern) for this post. I've been drafting it on and off in my head for the past few days. I knew the date was approaching, I knew I had to sit here once again, figure out something to say and remember how to do Markdown links.
However, before I get to the main bit (fear the pattern) something rather interesting happened… Read more

It's been another year since I last posted here. Apparently I am now an annual blogger. Never my intention, but better than nothing.

It's been exactly a year since I last posted here. A far cry from the posting volume I managed during my attempt(s) at Project52. I can't even blame Twitter, I barely write there either.
I noticed a few weeks ago that this date was approaching, and I was hoping to find the time to put together something that represented the year I have had, but other things have got in the way. Read more

As already mentioned I have left my previous job and have moved on to pastures new.
These new pastures also happen to be somewhat familiar as it turns out I'm going to be spending a lot more time in the study of the flat I already inhabit.
I'm going freelance, flying solo, founding a company, starting a business, or however else you like to phrase the risky exchange of a consistent salary in favour of more creative freedom. Read more
