Fish shell

I switched my shell from Zsh to Fish yesterday. In this post I go through how to get started with Fish, take you through my config, and provide you with links to useful plugins and tools.

Enjoy! :)

Just started working through the last advent of code in PHP. Trying to be smart about using new PHP8 features as a way of getting better acquainted with the latest changes. I really love PHP!

A comical video of my daughter performing a monologue written by the same person who wrote the stories I narrated which appear on this website.

In this role, she plays an embittered TV Chef who may have a little problem with booze.

Contains liberal amounts of swearing etc.

Off to a wedding reception after 18 months of no socialising. Think I have forgotten how to 'other people'.

North Wales is beautiful. Lovely day walking along the river at Betws-y-coed today.

Official last day at old job today. Three weeks off before I start new role

I saw some white dogshit while I was out just now. Takes me back.

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

As someone in my discord server said - “the best way to make politicians anti-facial recognition might be to use it on them”.

Putting the finishing touches to some gruvbox-themed CSS for my tasksapp web app. Will be trying to record a screencast tomorrow in prep for a bit if a publicity spree.

Unless my boss is reading this, in which case I'm totally not doing that while I should be working...

"There is something fantastic, that can replicate most of what Google offers: Nextcloud.

It's not only a file storage solution, but it can also handle e-mail, photos, music, calendar, an online office suite, and a lot more!"

If something isn't eating your plants, your garden isn't part of the ecosystem.

In second week of training for Manchester marathon and my knee has decided to give out. Training over next few months is going to be a lot more of a challenge than I first thought it seems!

A lazy afternoon of looking at the energy settings config of my i3 installation today, I think.

Can anyone recommend a good hosting company for a few small VPSes? Personal experience recommendations would be good as I've done the googling to see who's about but I want to choose one based on other folks good experiences (and not Amazon!).

Actually, the best thing about my i3 setup is toggling caps lock on by pressing both shift keys, and off by hitting one of them. Unless I've missed the option, this is a way of working that is definitely missing in other DEs.

Even though I love i3 and I have it 'in my fingers' now, I still spend a lot of time on the mouse.

The best thing is that if you are using a lot of GUI apps and they need the mouse, you can drive it all like that; but when using apps that work well mouseless, that works as well.

Whatever app developers throw my way, i3 just stays out of the way and lets me do what I need. Nice.
