Climate change and the weakening of the Gulf Stream means big weather changes for Florida, the Eastern US, and Europe.
To say it is thankless work is an understatement but I'm incredibly impressed by the work the #WordPress #Privacy folks are doing. Their work is incredibly important and yet they are forced to operate as a mostly forgotten entity. Thank you for all you do! https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/privacy/

I may, or may not, be rocking out to the Spice Girls while I work this afternoon.
OK, I am.
I really try not to be rude to people but I have a giant "no soliciting" sign on my front door for a reason. Some salesman, usually from Frontier or a real estate agent, completely ignore it. When called on it they usually have the gall to get mad at me and tell me they're not soliciting. GTFO. I have that for a reason so I can actually get work done during the day. ARGH!
and i don't just say this out of "oh people who don't use the command line are ~~scrubs~~ who don't understand how ~~real~~ computers work"

this is a /choice/ that software developers continue to make and we have to /stop/
management will not approve and frankly they can fuck off. budget time for an /actual manual/
Could WordPress + Tumblr create an alternative to Facebook?
Wishing Automattic the best of luck, the world need more alternatives
Every year I have fun looking at what tools I use for my work and I do a write-up of that toolkit. This year is no exception, especially as my toolkit has changed so drastically over the last year. https://chriswiegman.com/2019/08/tools-of-the-trade-2019/

After a few months of trial and error, I've finally released an new version of my personal site. Now to start writing more. https://chriswiegman.com/2019/08/its-time-for-a-new-site/
Perhaps I should look at a drip service for when I try to clean out my Wallabag account. So much good stuff in there. Anyone know of a good self-hosted alternative to something like Buffer? cc @switchingsocial
