Suppose I should introduce myself!

I’m Mitch, a web developer from the middle of the UK. I use several languages including PHP, Elixir, Swift, Crystal and Javascript.

Outside of programming I’m into fitness, boardgames, guitar, landscape photography, reading fantasy books, and anything tech related.

It may seem overkill but arbitrary variants are so great for rounding off edges on first and last child elements. I could get dangerous with this 😅

Here’s progress on my little side project StatusQuote (A native fash card app). I’ve got ‘topic’ management working on MacOS and iOS, including uploading a thumbnail and deleting topics. Here it is on MacOS

Progress on my "Flash Card" meets Instagram app. Here's how it looks on a phone rather than as a Mac app. I've also added 'Topics' in a similar style to stories. All hard coded at the moment, but I think it has potential!

📺 Late to the party but Severance is such a good show.

The new Mac Studio: I wanted a refreshed 27” iMac with an M1 Pro chip. Now I have to go for an M1 Max and a display that costs as much as my iMac did. It’s so odd that no desktops have an M1 Pro option. I’d rather spend more on storage than power as M1 is super fast anyway.

Every so often I switch to Vivaldi browser and fall in love with its wide depth of features. Stuff like tiling websites and vertical tabs are so great. But it’s so slow and eats up my RAM like nothing else.

Then I switch back to Firefox and it’s just so damn fast in comparison.

I’ve ust discovered Microsoft Powertools and it’s really cool. I can now map common shortcuts from the Mac to their Windows alternatives, as well as a nice Alfred-like experience! No more getting lost with Ctrl/Command!
