@jimmytidey Just saw your name in a Mastodon ticket on GHโ€”how are you mate?

@ashkyd At least, I think that's going to work.

@ashkyd We were making this way more complicated than necessary. There are proxy settings in the iOS VPN config screen. ๐Ÿ™„

We got an email that #Flickr was acquired by #SmugMug.

I closed my account after Yahoo purchased it, in 2005. Why am I getting email about this? Also, why didn't I get an email about Flickr going to Verizon!?

This is a reason the #GDPR was created.

Just for the hell of it I've spent the evening recreating a long defunct project of mine: whatdoyousuggest.net/

Not quite the same as the original, but still interesting, I think.

Just a bit of fun exploring the suggestions provided by Google's search .

Enjoy.

I have a 1.7 million row CSV I would like to filter and serve from a static function (something like Google Cloud functions). Best approach?

Out of the 1000 most popular names (in South Australia since 1944), we agree on 11 as possibilities.

Right, so we're approx. one day from a new baby arriving and yesnobaby.com still looks like, well, that.

I guess this baby doesn't get a name.

So, I'm working on a baby naming app. Here I will post short updates, complain about stuff, and ask questions.

Did up some business cards for the LGBT networking event, pretty happy with how they turned out. bne.social/media/5yoSTUIk9ZoHE

(p.s. anyone looking for a second hand gas cooktop and oven?)

First day of renovations today and our builder brought his toddler to the construction site for "working Wednesday".

I think this is good.

Wi-fi hygiene is important folks. Just removed the free hotel wi-fi config from the place we stayed for our honeymoon.

It's been more than a decade.
