Another year ends, that’s time for another summary of the things we’ve watched this year :)
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!
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.
What does your office look like these days? Here is mine. Say hi to my coworker!
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 :)
Better late than never! Another year, another recap of all the great (and not so great) shows we’ve watched in the past year!
If you have followed this blog for a while, it won’t come as a surprise that I’m a big fan of Ramin Djawadi and his work. Prison Break, Westworld, Iron Man, Game of Thrones, and many others. If you’ve watched TV series or movies in the past 10 years, you must have heard some of his work.
Today I’ve put together a playlist of some of my favorite tracks across all 8 seasons of Game of Thrones. You can listen to it right here on this blog, but if you use Google Play Music, you can also check the playlist I created here.
Security cameras can be fun, they can catch interesting things happening while you’re asleep. In action below, 2 of our neighbours, a fox and a beech marten :)

I…I think I want to build a keyboard.— Doug (@dougaitken) February 22, 2020
I had the top keyboard but it had a coffee accident, now a few keys don’t work. I’m finding the bottom now too small. I work from my office ~50 weeks of the year so I feel it’s time to get a mouse & keyboard that work for me pic.twitter.com/zWuJoEGQVb
I have opinions on this. :)
This is a blast from the past. It came up in a conversation this weekend. I had to listen to them again today! :)
I discovered Billy Ze Kick as a kid, they were a small band but had catchy tunes that I quickly memorized. I don’t think I really caught up on what the lyrics were really about until much later.
The song below, Mangez moi, was their biggest hit and talks about a small group of friends going on a hike in the rain to find magic mushrooms.
It’s been 26 years, but it’s still as catchy as ever and I still remember the lyrics. Enjoy!
