AboutI've been a developer all my life and that's what I keep coming back to. I like to think of myself as a philosopher, designer, business owner, sales guy and problem solver....but I think I might be "just" a developer.

I actually bothered to add buttons to the vscode commandbar today instead of always relying on the terminal window. So neat. Why didn't I do this a year ago?
So I upgraded the dependencies to the latest version - and it’s all gone to hell. Of course it has...1
...of course after carefully perusing the doco and ensuring the parameters are right the supplied conversion utility crashes with no error message .... of course it does
Could access every website but github.com “all of a sudden”...exp stopped working npm was broken...macs are so stupid then.....
I dumbed....it was all my fault. </duh>
Yesterday I blocked my kids’ access to the internet .. and just blocked the IP4 access of my mac. What a genius. It appears github (and not other sites) requires IP4 whereas most now use IP6.
I used to think the magnetic power cord on the mac was a great idea...until we got a kitten. One of his greatest joys is to play havoc with the cords under the computer desk...but his favourite is the mac powercord - which he rips out without me noticing ... until the mac runs out of power and shuts down...5
I’m terrified of the Mac Os Mojave update - the last 3 updates have “black screen of death-ed” my computer. Please tell me everything is going to be alright....13
Mary had a little Amazon Lambda,
It tested quite ok,
Tried to expose it with an API,

I'm a mac AND a PC! Are you? I actually quite like both of them.
My dev setup has both operating systems, with a shared mouse and keyboard (using Synergy) -> and I love it! It feels like I get the ability to do anything. There are some apps I prefer on the WIndows side and others that are fine on the mac. I use git and dropbox to share dev files between the two seamlessly.
I come from a Linux background, so I like that I can use bash on the mac, although on the PC I use Powershell mostly. I also have used the Ubuntu linux subsystem on the PC very effectively.
I was originally forced into the situation due to iPhone mobile development - now I don't mind at all!
On the mobile side I happily switch between iOS and Android all the time.
Love the way so many technologies exist to let you work across platforms so well.
Anyone else use both at the same time?10
Jest addin for vscode:
- I love how it's running all the time testing my code
- Doesn't show line numbers where the problems are (may be a babel/promises issue perhaps)
- Doesnt have coloured text (normal jest runner does)
- I can't get debugging working (I'm sure I will eventually)
