  • My Advice To Anyone Starting A Business Is To Remember That Someday I Will Crush You. Good luck, indeed (via The Onion).

  • Decided to nuke my site and restore to a new Wordpress installation and database.

  • Just spent the last couple of hours cleaning up a hack in my Wordpress installation. Someone had managed to inject a pile of crap into my file system. I’ve never had this sort of thing happen before. Made some security changes to hopefully stop it happening again.

  • Rolled back to iOS 10 on my phone after trying the 11 public beta. It was NOT easy this time.

  • I understand the arguments against ad-blockers but if you have those “15 shocking celebrity pictures” type ads on your site then I have little sympathy. It’s insulting to readers and I will block.

  • I’ve managed to get OwnYourGram and OwnYour Swarm working on my site today. Goodbye to extra plugins and IFTTT recipes.

  • There’s a load of spam getting through to my mac/icloud email address today. It seems like someone has turned off the filters.

  • I spent some time today learning a bit about Hugo after several mentions here. I managed to download and install it on my mac all via the terminal which was quite satisfying.

  • A question for anyone who uses the Bridgy plugin for Wordpress. How do you stop it sending the website icon/image as part of tweets?

  • MotionX Poker. This was one of the first and best apps I ever bought for iPhone. It hasn’t been updated in years but still plays without any warnings.

  • Just got the “Dispatched” email for my new iPad Pro. Should be here tomorrow.

  • Masashi Wakui on Flickr: these photos of Tokyo are wonderful.

  • It’s not often I’ll share something from The Daily Telegraph but this Iron Maiden gig review is pretty great.
