Why Is Headless CMS So Hard?

I really want to use my iPad to write code. It shouldn’t be this hard. I don’t know why, but it really is. Today, I’ve been playing with round-tripping through Working Copy and Code Editor by Panic (formerly Coda). I think I’ve almost gotten it worked out, but man is it painful. I shouldn’t have to run a webdav server on my own iPad to edit documents and save back to GitHub.

I guess the good news is that I’m able to ssh into a local copy of my git repo without leaving this window. I sure have put down a lot of money on text/code editors just to experiment and find out which ones aren’t working out.

This should be so much easier. I feel like iPadOS has been band-aided to death so that it can avoid being a Macbook when people want to use it like a Macbook.

TV+ Is Confusing as Hell

Recently, my mother moved in with us because she has needs that require her to be attended. I’ve spent the last few weeks trying to make her comfortable in the home. Part of that comfort entails setting up a TV for her to watch her shows. We’re an all-streaming home now, as I finally pulled the plug on DirecTV about a month ago. My mother is a die-hard DirecTV fan because she’s used to it.

Now, I have to ask her to get used to the way we watch shows in this house and it’s been painful.

Tips From a Relutant Leader

Those of you who know me personally may be familiar with the fact that I want nothing to do with management or leadership. I really don’t. I spent a number of years in a project where leadership was something that was quite attractive to me. After I went through that period of time, I realized that what I really want is absolutely nothing to do with responsibility. I definitely do not want to be responsible for anyone else’s success or guiding directions of an overall team.

But time and time again, I was told that I was needed to take this kind of thing on. I care about people and especially my teammates, so if I feel like I can make a difference by being in that kind of role, I will do my best.

But I won’t like it.

Cut the Cord

I have a number of technical options available for my setup. I’d like some advice on the best approach to achieve OTA HDR 4k TV… primarily for local channels. I just canceled my DirecTV because I couldn’t justify $100 a month. I didn’t use it enough. But I need your advice.

Terraform AWS S3 Website Module Released

I really love Terraform. It’s been driving my career advancements for the past 2-3 years. I’ve really enjoyed working with it. As such, I do try to create useful Terraform modules to give back to the community. Most of the module work I have done has been for my employer, but sometimes I make code that is more for myself. This is one such module.

Amazon Affiliate Links

Why I learned to start loving the Amazon and hating the Google

As you can see, I’ve started to offer some Amazon ads in the site. Previously, I was trying to use adsense to generate some extra income. The latest policies on adsense just don’t work out for this site for some reason, and Google just outright refuses to show ads. I got sick of dealing with it and frankly, I’m site of Google in general. That’s ok. I genuinely like Amazon. I work with their AWS platform every day and shopping on their site is usually a joy.

Cross Site Tracking in Safari

I updated the pipeline that builds this site into Hugo 0.62.2 and all hell broke loose. Basically, the Hugo theme that I was using was ancient. I chose a new theme, but then discovered that it won’t work in Safari if you have cross-site tracking disabled.

Contractor Admits Guilt for Logic Bomb

On the surface, this seems funny. But it’s really not. I know that many people lost many days and minutes of their lives and professional reputations over this man’s selfishness. I pain to think of how many marriages and families were damaged. His sentence does not fit the crime at all.
