Jetpack: remove External Media from the block editor

The Jetpack plugin comes with a number of blocks and editor extensions. One of those features extends the existing Media blocks, and adds an option to find and upload images from Google Photos or Pexels:

While this can be super useful when you use Google Photos or need to find free stock photos for your posts, you may sometimes prefer to only see the default “Media Library” option.

Playing with time intervals in WordPress

I’ve recently had to think about calculating time intervals in a little WordPress plugin of mine, and I thought I would share my findings. Maybe some of you will have some ideas on how to improve things even further :)

Following the Vendée Globe with the kids

I don’t really follow sports, with the exception of the Vendée Globe. Every four years, a bunch of crazy sailors take part in a solo, non-stop, without assistance, round the world sailing race.

I usually follow the event on my own, but this time around the kids will follow the race with me, learning a thing or two along the way!

Back to school

Everything is a bit different this year, isn’t it?

My oldest started first grade last year, and we were all super excited about it. The first day of school was something we all looked forward to. This year, we’re once again stressed about her first day in school, but for all the wrong reasons.

GitHub notifications: tweaking the redesign

I spend my days on GitHub. One of the screens I use the most is the Notifications area, that got redesigned just a few days ago.

As with every redesign, some people love it, some people hate it. When trying the new interface a few weeks ago, I wasn’t happy with some of the changes. I voiced my feedback to the team and moved back to the old interface. That old interface is now gone, so I’ll have to get used to the new one. That won’t stop me from making a few changes to better fit my workflow, though :)

On Repeat Today: Dissolved Girl, Massive Attack

I really enjoyed the first two seasons of Westworld. There was so much in there that I liked: the actors, the world building, the soundtrack, … I was super pumped to start watching season 3. I’ve enjoyed the first two episodes so far (although that second episode felt a bit too rushed in my opinion). I think both Aaron Paul and Vincent Cassel will be great additions to the cast, and the soundtrack is still great :)
