Lockdown continues

I don't think I've mentioned this in blogs or notes before, but the UK is currently on lockdown. Since 18th March, Liquid Light have been a fully remote company - we had to quickly adapt to working in an office to all being in our own homes. It's a weird time, but I think the boy is enjoying both me and my wife being home. Despite the fact i'm not spending 2 hours a day commuting, I seem to have less time then I did before! It's going to be a hard shift when we're allowed to go back to the office again.

Thankfully we're allowed to go out an exercise - the bike rides scattered throughout the week are keeping me sane!

Behind the source gets started

It's been a long time coming, but Behind the Source is finally going to be underway next week. Last week I announced who was going to be involved and when the interviews are going public. I'm super excited about these as they have been such a good read while I've been editing and inputting them into the CMS.

    Posted on 20th April 2020. Written For Liquid Light

    Cloudflare is a service which, among other things, provides a CDN (Content Delivery Network), firewall, and performance layer for your website. It has plenty of paid upgrades and features and is a developer’s dream, but what advantage does it have for you to put your website “behind” Cloudflare and how…

    New Site If you have come here before you would have noticed there is now a new face to my blog. More space, better fonts & (in my opinion) just generally nicer. I wrote a "timeline/history" about the blog/my site and dug up some Internet Archive links for each step. You can…
