So I took a week off to re-tile the toilet room - without any skills to do so. Last few days I learned to how tile and how to cut tiles (using a grinder because the tiles are too thick for normal tile cutters apparently).

It takes way more time than I anticipated and it is giving me anxiety. 🙈 But also a bit proud for taking on this challenge, so I’ll try to focus on the latter.

@confusus Haha, epic. I thought you were on a proper holiday instead of a DIYstaycation.

@confusus Yeah, we’ll be off to 🇨🇭for a wedding where we’ll do a lot of 🏕️⛰️🥾. :D

Helemaal weg bij Transip (na 20+ jaar, voor VPS en domeinnamen) want ze werden (veel) te duur.

Zo doen we dat.

Yes, you supposedly need the fanciest, most hyped frameworks/tech to create an app in 2024.

While MrBeasts's team just ships.

@ralfSuess @andrasbacsai They use nginx and PHP, see red underlines.

It took me a gazzilion hours and only 3.48 gray hairs but…

… I’ve an About section (on the Settings page 😅) in my meal planning app.

Also: I just completed 99% of my landing page.🥳

Felt proud, might delete later.

@rhazn Thx!

You can almost try the app: I’m readying it for the invite-only public alpha release.

The About section/page is part of this effort. I figured I can’t keep highlighting the app’s proposition/mechanics to folks (outside my inner circle) through chat.

The same goes for onboarding. I’ve implemented a simple flow that needs some final touches (= fixing a dead end 😅) and we’re... sort of good to go but at one point you just have to Ship It.

I’ll ping you when ready!

Those rare moments when you’re able to outtrick SwiftUI for the desired outcome. Having one of those right now. No GeometryReaders were involved in the pulling of this stunt. Feeling pretty good about myself.

Онези тупани в туитър са ми рисетнали настройките – цветове, шрифтове, всичко. Отидох да ги оправя уж... ама нанайси. Сложили точно 5 цвята, от които да си избереш един, и 5 размера на шрифта само като опция. Цялата им работа такава – тесла с ударение на а-то.
