On Repeat Today: Misty Mountains, The Hobbit Soundtrack

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is probably my favourite movie of the trilogy. The trilogy itself pales in comparison to The Lord Of The Rings, but the first movie of the Hobbit trilogy had the right tone, and was centered on what made The Hobbit book so good: it was Bilbo’s adventure and was focussed on Bilbo and his companions, the dwarves.


Westworld: here is our first taste of the new season coming out next year

When the second season of Westworld ended, I was really wondering where they would take the show. A page had been turned, but I wasn’t sure where they would go from there.


We’re in the Endgame now.

After 11 years, it’s time to wrap this up!

The Expanse: the new book is out!

I’ve blogged a bit about The Expanse in the past, mostly to tell you about the TV series that I’ve grown to really enjoy. I’m also a big fan of the books the series is based on. I’ve read all 7 books published so far, and have been waiting impatiently for the 8th book to become available.

Today is the day! :) Tiamat’s Wrath is the 8th and penultimate book in the series, and you can now purchase it in all formats.


TV Series: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

I know I know, I just recently recommended you some TV shows to watch, and now I am already back with more! This one is worth its own post I think.

My wife and I discovered The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel a little while ago. We were looking for something a bit happier than our usual dramas, and we found it!

Mrs Maisel is fun.


I’m on YouTube!

I don’t talk about work too often, but this time I have to share this :) Automattic has a series of interviews, all available on YouTube, where you can discover different Automatticians, what motivates them, and what they do every day. 

I was interviewed back in December, and talked a bit about what I do, and why I like working at Automattic. As I said in the video, if you’ve thought about applying in the past but haven’t done it yet, give it a try! You have nothing to lose :)

On Repeat Today: Fools, The Dodos

After watching Danny MacAskill’s Cascadia video once again, I ended up playing this song on repeat today. Enjoy!

SVN and @ characters: peg revision is not allowed here

This has got me stuck a few times in the past few months so I thought I would write this down and get this committed to memory, once and for all!

When working with SVN and trying to add or remove a file that includes the @ to your working copy, you will run into a peg revision is not allowed here error:

svn rm modules/sharedaddy/images/[email protected]
svn: E200009: 'modules/sharedaddy/images/[email protected]': a peg revision is not allowed here

That is because SVN uses the @ symbol as a way to determine a specific revision, like so:

svn info [email protected]
Path: readme.txt
Name: readme.txt
Relative URL: ^/jetpack/trunk/readme.txt
Repository Root:
Repository UUID: b8457f37-d9ea-0310-8a92-e5e31aec5664
Revision: 2021803
Node Kind: file
Last Changed Author: jeherve
Last Changed Rev: 2021532
Last Changed Date: 2019-01-29 22:57:37 +0100 (Tue, 29 Jan 2019)

To work around that, all you need to do is add an @ symbol at the end of the filename, like so:

svn rm modules/sharedaddy/images/[email protected]@
D         modules/sharedaddy/images/[email protected]

Problem solved!

On Repeat Today: Anyone Who Knows What Love Is — Irma Thomas

As I am catching up with Black Mirror (we are still in the middle of Season 4), I have to share this song from the episode we watched yesterday. It was a good callback to one of the first episodes, Fifteen Million Merits. Enjoy!
