Hello 👋 I'm Dan.

I write PHP, Go, and JavaScript. I also care about web performance.

Inspired by people like @manton I got an 11” iPad Pro last week to do more writing and other focussed activities like planning and documentation.

Early days yet but I feel this could be the perfect device for doing just that.

Devastating news about Keith Flint’s passing. The Prodigy have been a favourite of mine for a very long time.

Had a ticket to see them play a month back in Melbourne but was too unwell to attend. I’m shattered.

Day 3 of my V for Vendetta/Watchmen/The Punisher sleeve done! Absolutely loving the way this is looking so far, can’t wait to have it finished soon.

Been playing a lot of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in my downtime recently. Sometimes you need to take a break from working and relax.

Just about to sit down for day 2 of my Watchmen/The Punisher/V for Vendetta tattoo sleeve. Dreading the inside upper arm - ahhh the things we do for art.

The Great Facebook and Instagram Migration

If you dislike what Facebook is doing, continuing to use Instagram only helps prop up Facebook’s business.

As much as I agree with Manton here, Instagram is the last of the social media networks that I use and keep connected with the outside world.

Instagram is the only app on my phone that I have time limits set up on - no more than 10 minutes a day.

I think the writing is on the wall though. 2019 is the year I quit Instagram for good.

After 551 days straight of meeting my standing goal my series 2 Apple Watch is dying at around 70% battery. As much as I love the Apple Watch I’m pretty disappointed that it’s all of a sudden shutting down at 60%-70% battery.

The Apple Watch is the one device that keeps me tied to the Apple platform. Perhaps this might be the straw that breaks the camels back and pushes me to Android.

Made some small improvements to my Micropub endpoint: removed the coupling to Hugo and made it easier to add a new provider.

Something I should’ve done earlier but had slipped my mind.
