Learning Java at university: life lessons. Sometimes it’s the silly things that have you stuck for longer than you’d like to admit.
My first week at university was somewhat different to the usual structure. I found myself reflecting on why I’m doing this and focusing myself very much on what I want to get out of it and how to get there.
It’s super simple to put your site on lockdown using http basic authorisation and nginx. I mostly use this to allow clients to look at sites “live” without having the general public be able to see them until they’ve been signed off.
wxPython is notoriously difficult to get running inside a VirtualEnv, where instructions exist they focus on Python2 and tend to be (or at least appear) long and complicated. After a lot of fighting this is the simplest solution I came up with.

Paper lists have always failed me and my digital todo list was going the same way, with tasks festering undone for months on end. Bullet Journaling helped me fix it.
.htaccessfiles are a thing that I know to be both powerful and extremely useful, yet, I have somehow never sat down and learned properly. As a result I fight with it (and swear at it) every single time. This post is going to become a repository for useful
.htaccesscommands with explanations of why they work so that when I inevitably forget what I did I can look it up.
Having got tired of my face being constantly either dry and itchy or spotty or both I decided I should put aside my hatred of all things girly and actually investigate skincare.

I can’t automate this, but if I could, I would.
