Nov 6

tying up

Urgh, stomach bug yesterday so I had to cancel Sunday free trial Premium F2F pairing. Still weak today, but at least it seems we finally fixed the youtube link extra posting issue once I rolled out the updated_at –> created_at switch for the recent_hangouts

AV EcoSystem Review Tying Up the Week

Nov 3

tying up

So I didn’t manage to get the updated_at -> created_at fix deployed in advance of the Kent Beck scrum yesterday, so I still can’t say for certain that I have fixed the bug where the old YouTube link gets posted on daily events. I believe everything...

Urgh, minor headache again today, drinking lots of water. Night before last a Halloween sweeties over-indulged child had caused me broken sleep. Ended up drinking coffee again, hmm. Somewhat Slack/Email distracted. Really odd thing is that the...

task switching

AV EcoSystem Review Emotional Hurdles

Oct 18


Late to the blogface due to feelings of lethargy and accidentally reading all my Slack and Emails. Not so many of them as I was checking them pretty late last night as well - blurgh. However the mixed strategy of investigating performance and a...

AV EcoSystem Review Death Warmed Up

Oct 17
