One good thing about living by the sea is unobstructed views of clouds. We get some crazy clouds round here.

I've wanted to light a match under this site for a while, and Craft CMS going headless is the kick up the ass I needed. So we have a Next.js frontend with Craft behind it, deployed with Gitlab CI and Docker. I had a lot of fun making this. It's rough as hell but I've learned a lot. And I built a new site in like 5 days. I love being my own client.

Now I have to refactor all this junk and figure out why Server Side Rendering isn't working.


I never care about celebrities or their net worth, unless Charlotte puts Architectural Digest on. Then I simply must know Mark Ronson's net worth. His house is so nice, did Valerie really make him enough money for this house?


Everything I read about Death Stranding makes me less interested in it, but the same writing seems to have the opposite effect on everyone else. This happens for me literally every game Kojima releases.


DSA Scientific/Lubed Sakurios/DZ60 Build

I built a keyboard. I like keyboards, OK? This is the first time I've ever soldered. It was fun. I w...

I don't care for dressing up. This is the least effort I could make...

The heaviest moments in music are as follows:

It's been a long, long week. I just want to swing my arms but I'm recovering from an injury so probably should not do that.


Every time, every project, without fail; my least favourite task is building navigation.

As an aside, I got a Craft license and I'm going to rebuild this site with GraphQL and React like it's 2019 or something. And it's going to have no navigation. Well, maybe one link.


I've bought some stuff to build another keyboard. I love the RoPro, but it's not quite wide enough to have all my keys where I need them, and it's too deep to just relocate them. It's a lovely board to write on; maybe I need to mess with the keymap a bit. In particular, []{} are too far away from everything else.

My next build is a DZ60, DSA Scientific, lubed Sakurios, KBDFans 5° in grey, GMK screw-ins band-aid modded.

Pretty excited - never done any soldering before.



We went to Nymans to try and peep some autumn foliage. We were a bit late but the sun was...

Huge photo post incoming. Not even sorry. Dumped from my phone...

My Time Machine backup drive got corrupted. The oldest backup on that drive was from 2012, and now it's gone. I've been running and migrating the same macOS install since before my daughter was born. That drive has outlived like three laptops. RIP, Midna. Long live Mercedes (I name my drives after video game characters because I am very cool)

I know what you're thinking but it's not my only backup; I'm not a sociopath.

Along with everyone in the south of England today, I'm posting sunrise photos...

I've been trying to take it easy lately to let my arm get better, but it's super annoying not exercising when you're into it...


Nothing much. Just some nice silhouettey sunsets...


I've done a camera swap with Dan, and I'm using the Leica M10-D this weekend...
