I would love to be able to pin cards at the top of each list in Trello. Just saying.

One again I’ve made Kurt’s list and he now he’s planning a surprise visit!

Family guy and freelance web developer, Matthew Lang publishes regularly from Paisley, Scotland on apps, life, and business.  Some day, I plan to meet him in person.  I just don’t plan on telling him when.  Want it to be a surprise.

25 Blogs Guaranteed to Make you Smarter

It would be great to meet up with Kurt. One of those few blogs I have followed for years.

Back to work this morning after a week off.

Subscribed to the Hurry Slowly podcast this morning. Expecting good things.

Half of these ideas on making Slack less of a time suck are terrible suggestions. Just because you can make todo lists in a Slack, doesn’t mean that you should. Less is more with Slack. Use it for what it’s good at. Messaging. Anything else is a distraction.

Great first lesson of the off-season for Ethan with Andy, our club professional. Plenty to work on for next year!

Nice start to the day.

A lot of love for Cardhop on the blogs today. Going to have to give it a try at some point.

Another day, another blog post written. That’s three in a row. Need to get a couple of topics in place for tomorrow and Friday.

So many good things have happened on Micro.blog in the last few months and the cherry on the cake is the ]macOS client](http://help.micro.blog/2017/mac-version/).

My kind of prepping.

Just tried pumpkin spice cream liqueur. Erm …. not a fan. Might be alright for a coffee though.

Jerry Jones chips in on the NFL #takeaknee protest with an ultimatum for the Cowboys team.

“I’m not in the business of 51-49,” he said. “That’s not what we’re about. I’m removing the politics. I’m removing everything from this. What I have the right to say is who’s on that football field.”

Dallas owner Jerry Jones says Cowboys must stand for national anthem

Jones says he’s removing the politics from this, but it sounds like he’s removing everyone else’s politics on this by using the protest as a way to punish players.

Glad I’m not a Cowboys fan.

Another Christmas, another Star Wars movie. I can’t wait to see this.

Since watching it this morning, I’ve seen lots of theories online and I’ve even got my own theory about how the three movies will pan out but I’m keeping that to myself.

Had that moment in a software project yesterday when you realise you should have named something with ‘x’ instead of ‘y’. #epicrefactoring

I can’t say that I’m a fan of seeing high-speed Internet access being rolled out onto airlines.

Why is it that flights often make for good working conditions? In spite of all the discomfort, there’s something zen-like and cloistered about being in an aircraft and incommunicado. Particularly when lights dim and people are sleeping or absorbed in their movies with headphones on, it’s easy to get in a zone with the material you’re looking at, on a laptop or from a printout.

Free in-flight wifi means we’re quickly losing an unexpected haven for deep productivity

If this happens, why bother putting windows in the aircraft? No-one will be looking out them anyway.

Drew finished building this year’s Lego Halloween set. Well done wee man! 👍🏻

Drew moved up to his Tiger cubs green belt this morning. It’s great to see him making progress even at this level.

Michael Wade with the essential list for instructors.

Different ways to explain the subject and how to incorporate those ways into the class so if a student doesn’t grasp one approach then the next one or two should hit home.

12 Items an Instructor Should Consider by Michael Wade

Bonus points to Michael as well for using a picture with a Field Notes notebook in his post. Nice!

Currently having a geek out frenzy on ligatures in Sublime Text.
