  • Subscription is the new black

    I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel subscription fatigue. There’s a limit to how many I can add to my credit card.

  • Name Mangler : a hidden favourite Mac app

    Name Mangler by Many Tricks is a life saver when you have batches of files to organise and rename, and it’s super fast (and revertible). These actions could all be performed on the command line or via a shell script, but it’s so much faster to launch Name Mangler and get on with whatever you are trying to achieve.

  • Protein Spotlight gets its comic strip

    Last year, Vivienne approached me with the project of adapting a collection of Protein Spotlight articles into comic strips, both in English and French versions. The Geneva-based cartoonist aloys lolo was to create them on a monthly basis and eventually publish a book as well as set of posters. Could these comics be easily adapted into Protein Spotlight’s existing website?

  • Both AirPods Pro replaced

    I was at the Apple Store this morning exchanging my right AirPod Pro suffering from the same symptoms than the left one early March.

  • That kind of cat

    We chose her name on a pebble beach at Hermance in June 2007. We were on a family outing selecting pebbles to decorate the tiles of our bathroom. The children were 6 and 8, the original iPhone was about to be launched in the US, and I my digital camera was an 8MP Ricoh GRD (I was probably still shooting film).

  • Defer to the most cautious person in your presence

    Rachel shared a couple of guidelines she picked up last week that I find helpful in terms of decision-making, and explaning, around COVID-19 safety when interacting with other people. Having to make decisions without good data about the risk leads to all sorts of behaviours.

  • All skies and water

    Back from a few days off sailing and sleeping on our boat around Nyon, Allamand, Thonon-les-Bains and back.

  • Sharing CSS code between a selector and a media query

    While trying to optimise my SCSS code, I realised that it wasn’t possible to use @extend in a media query.

  • Post confinement

    I’ve been commuting back and forth to my office for over a month now, occasionally eating in restaurants and generally going on with my life as before. Or am I?

  • Safari’s Responsive Design Mode triggers Cloudflare error 1010

    If you are using Safari’s Responsive Design Mode to test a site using Cloudflare, you might run into 1010 errors and see your access denied to the website (even if it’s your own).
