    I found this site recently and absolutely love browsing the art pieces. I think they have a great model that can support artists.

    Yeah I hear you with the boredom... I definitely struggled with the same thing. But honestly the instructors do a really great job. It changed the workout into something I look forward to.

    A couple years ago, I pulled the trigger on purchasing a spin bike online for around $300 CAD. It’s fully analog with a big heavy flywheel that spins. Using that with the peloton app has been a life saver in the winter.

    I recommend the combo for anyone looking for a long term at-home solution that is “relatively” cheap.

    Bootstrap is good to learn because you will see it in a lot of projects.

    I used to really dislike CSS but after a while, you just get used to it and your ideas flow nicely into markup and styles to create nice websites.

    A friend of mine once had a good point: CSS may not be great, but it’s the best styling language that exists. And he’s right. It’s weird, and has lots of baggage, but it’s the best we’ve got.

    I recommend taking a look at Tailwind CSS. It provides utility classes for css. It is a great way to learn best practices since it basically is a bundle of best practices ready to be applied.

    I’ve been using the Filson Original Briefcase for a while now and it’s amazing. Its expensive but I’ve already had it for 3 years at least and I expect it to last another 10.

    It’s true. Librem has a long and uphill battle but their work is no doubt important. Even a small amount of competition in the area of privacy means that the competition can’t ignore it completely.

    I would love to see ActRaiser make a comeback. It was an overworld city building game but was also a well made platformer where you beat levels to progress to new areas. It was tonnes of fun.

    I’m happy to see that Apple is moving on this. Now that Apple includes privacy as part of its value offering, it has no choice but to respond to public pressure on privacy concerns.

    I'm making good progress at work on my current task. And I'm wrapping up what I'm doing since I'm taking two weeks off starting next week!

    I'm also chipping away at my side-project 30 Hour Jobs. I'm currently in the process of building out a more cohesive version of the site. As well, I need to write this week's newsletter which goes out Friday.
