Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations (on Branches)

In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations. Variations are like variables. Variables are my life these days because a) I don’t have a life, b) I’m filling in the void of my life with learning JavaScript. Should we apply these terms on everyday life, then: Life is a variable. Death is a constant. What

My WordPress Highlights of the Year

Those ill-advised individuals who follow my blog know that I don’t have a life. It won’t therefore come as a surprise that in the balancing act, my highs of the last year are pretty low. Perhaps not incidentally, they are all associated with WordPress in one way or another. In 2017 I did not get featured on

Making the World a Better Place

Because that’s what you say in tech, right? I’ve always wanted to be a software tester. (Always means ever since I got sense and shifted my flaming passion for Scottish Literature—why, yes, Scotland has a literature—to all things tech. After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that code is poetry.) If you’re, like me, deeply

After another night of fiddling with fonts—because that’s the most crucial part of a site, right?—I might have the winners. My current candidates to be deployed at my site (not this one, another one, and rest assured, even of less interest than this one) are two unbearably cute fonts. Cute like me. How professional (not).

What I Hated the Least Today 207/365: Proud (Not Really)

I’ve sort of finished the W3Schools HTML tutorial. It took me three times longer than I had expected. Anyway, I tried the quiz on the same site to test myself, and I didn’t score full points. Therefore, I’m not proud of myself really. I wonder if the note “You can be proud of yourself!” that appears after

What I Hated the Least Today 204/365: On (C)lick

I’ve been learning HTML on and off for the last half a year. I’ve now thoroughly covered the basic tutorial at W3Schools, but there’s more. There’s always more. My original idea(l) of encompassing all of HTML, as in moving all there is to know about it in my head, proved to be rather naive. I’m
