Logging Hours Rather Than Days In A Row

Logging Hours Rather Than Days In A Row

Duolingo and Babbel log days in a row, rather than the progress made in a day. The Kindle App counts days and weeks in a row. Kobo and Apple Books both log reading time. I want to dump Duolingo but I don’t want to lose my days in a row streak. Language Learning Streaks Plenty of apps like to log streaks. For them it is a way of addicting us to their app, to force us to use their app…

The Curse of The Electric Light Bulb

The Curse of The Electric Light Bulb

Have you ever considered how nice it would be to wake up when the sun comes up, and to end the day when the sun goes down? In summer the days would be long and filled with memories. In winter we would head to sleep when the sun sets. Every day we would either gain three minutes or lose three minutes. The curse is not the light bulb itself, of course, but rather in the ability for people to make…

With A view of the Mont Blanc

With A view of the Mont Blanc

I’m afraid to open the veluxes because of the threat of finding yet another large spider. I don’t mind having to dispose of it, but I hate the idea of having one walking around without me knowing. A great alternative to open windows is to go for your daily walk. You’re far from neighbours, from smokers, from metalworking and more. You are free to daydream. Today the Mont Blanc was clearly visible. The image is at max zoom with an…

The Daily Walk – 100 Days of Consecutive Blogging.

The Daily Walk – 100 Days of Consecutive Blogging.

We walk daily to look into the distance, to have fresh air, and to think about things. We take our daily walk because it’s a habit. We take our daily walk because it is a way of travelling from one place to another, without necessarily changing location. Today is day 100 of writing a blog post every day. Every day I have tried to find inspiration to write and every day I have succeeded. The posts go unread, but the…

Playing With Github and Visual Studio Code

Playing With Github and Visual Studio Code

Today I felt like taking a break from studying WordPress. I played with some code from a book I got for free on the Apple Bookstore. At this moment this code is consolidation. I will get to the challenging stuff later. I have read, from many sources, that it’s good to have examples of your work online when you learn to code. There are two steps to take although I don’t think the order matters. The first is to create…

Taking a Break From The Apple Watch

Taking a Break From The Apple Watch

Yesterday I decided to take a break from the Apple watch for up to a week. I am tired of two behaviours. The first of these is the watch’s habit of saying that I did not stand for two or three hours in a row. I know that I have. I need to stand to cook, or to brush my teeth and other tasks. It also annoys me that if you bend your arm it counts that you sat down….

Ninety Five Days of Blogging In A Row

Ninety Five Days of Blogging In A Row

I have managed to neutralise the inner censors. I have accomplished ninety five days of blogging in a row, once again. During the first 100+ days of the pandemic I did the same. At the time I thought that this would provide a document of how life was for the pandemic. The pandemic has lasted over 540 days and I eventually lost inspiration, and inspiration for new things to write. This is a longer challenge than NaNoWriMo because it lasts…

A Walk While Downloading Files by FTP

A Walk While Downloading Files by FTP

At the moment I study seven days a week without fail. Today I was learning about “Coding Your Own WordPress Custom Post Types”. I think this will be interesting because you can create a new section to a website, or if not a section then at least a collection of assets. In the course they speak about businesses, events or other things. If this is what I think it is, then I will be happy to learn it. This website…

Broken Stones, Good Weather and Autumn

Broken Stones, Good Weather and Autumn

Today as I looked at the ground I saw broken stones. The one in the image below is especially beautiful. I don’t know why there were more broken stones than usual. It seems that the conditions were right to bring the stones to the surface and for the farmers’ machinery to break them all to pieces. It’s impressive to see the size of some of the broken stones. The leaves have started to turn, as various plants give up on…

What Do The Logs Show

What Do The Logs Show

Joke: I was on the phone with tech support when I walked by these and I was asked “What do the logs show?” I had a double take before I understood he meant the web logs and other server logs. I then continued walking I am getting somewhere with my studies. I feel that I am now starting to understand ideas and contexts and that as a result I can start working towards reaching and getting stuck on the next…
