Pinned toot

Hi! I have been paying my bills programming in PHP for over a decade with WP being what got me into the language originally.

I have a number of personal projects that I work on with the PHP Plates based static site generator Tapestry being the one that consumes the most spare time.

I thoroughly enjoy working with, and helping others and would very much like to be more involved in the PHP community at large.

This is another unfinished one from my archive; I have cropped it to the most complete part of the image - the heels.

I really like this crop as an image in its own right.

Boosting as an image so I don't annoy those with screen readers with the emoji spam.

This bot account is quite pretty and a nice addition to my home feed @tiny_gardens

Passwords on their own are becoming increasingly insecure and that's always going to be the case. Using long garbled passwords with a password manager and 2fa on everything is the best bet to keep your shit secure.

Dear user of the fediverse,

today, it is my birthday. I have but one request, and I am sure you already know what it is. But, I will still choose to reiterate myself.

For my birthday, as a gift, I would like some boosts. I hope you can fulfill my request.
Thank you in advance.

Biggest one is the #PinebookPro.

**usb-c**, with power input and video output
#Rockchip #RK3399

and the usual laptop features. target price, US$199! I look forward to getting #OpenBSD running well on this #arm64 system.

For future reference if you use an alternative configuration file in PHPStorm for your PHPUnit Run/Debug config it doesn't get applied to ad-hoc method tests unless you set the "Default configuation file" property under "Test Runner" in the "Test Frameworks" config pane.

If this helps just one other from wasting a morning figuring out why their tests run as a batch but not when filtered as a singular it will have been worth documenting. #php

a while ago i bought a book about interior design published in the mid-late 80s. this is one of the pages in it

I found this short 12 minute tutorial on building your own CSS preprocessor in vanilla ES6 super interesting

Oh my god i just found out that if an animal is found that defies classification they are placed in a substitute taxon called problematica and that is... so funny to me.

@romanzolotarev just an idea, but you could write another companion to ssg like rssg that creates a json index of the page content and provides a js file for live search of the websites content? It could be called sssg ๐Ÿ˜€
