Hello 👋 I'm Dan.

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

As much as I’d love to have USB-C in an iPhone, I’m inclined to agree with John Gruber and his thoughts about Lightning vs USB-C. I have USB-C chargers around the house to charge my laptops and my girlfriend’s Samsung (shudder) phone, it’d be super convenient if I could add iPhone to the list of devices that can get power from the one cable.

Day 1 of my V for Vendetta/Watchmen/The Punisher sleeve down. Absolutely loving the progress and look so far, excited to have it finished, hopefully by early next year.

Absolutely wonderful day at Lerderderg Gorge State Park. We did a 13.5 KM walk – clambered up and down some very steep hills, saw a snake and a goat, and had to hunt for hidden paths along the way. Totally worth it, we’re exhausted.

Watched Event Horizon for the first time last weekend, watching it again tonight. Some of the special effects have not aged well but it’s a terrific movie nonetheless.

I’m going to miss these kittens, we return them after fostering them for a few weeks. Fun little troublemakers they are 🐱

Excited to be heading to the Gold Coast in January next year to watch the last day of the Australian CrossFit Championships. The girlfriend and I are flying up and back in the same day, it’ll be a whirlwind trip that’s for sure.

Only just noticed that I hit 500 sequential days of meeting my stand goal on the Apple Watch a few days ago. I’m kind of surprised that I didn’t miss a day here or there.

That new Mac mini is beautiful. Impressed with the new iPad Pro and MacBook Air too. Now to consider replacing my legacy MacBook Pro acting as the media server for home.
