Weeknotes: Reclining — Week 8, 2024

  • Got to play an early preview of Chroma Arcana, and it is wholeheartedly a lot of fun. Very quick, and I picked up the rules with hopefully not too much explaining.
  • Did you know the Seahorse does Karaoke?
  • After getting a strong recommendation, I watched Saltburn on the way home: I have many opinions, but one thing is fact: Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back in style.
  • Shout out to the MVP of the week: FS.
  • ImageCDN is now on Fastify and uses origin based rate-limiting. It took me about 3 hours from upgrading Node and refactoring everything, load-testing in a new pre-production environment and then finally tuning parameters in production. Memory usage is now at an all-time low, and RPS at an all-time high.
  • Keeping the momentum going, I then bumped the Enable Github Automerge Action to run on Node 20 - with two major releases: 1.1.0 and 2.0.0.
  • Helped a friend out with sofa shopping at the weekend, where I discovered Cinemax offer a sofa version of the reclining seats in cinemas. I have never wanted anything more which I need less.
  • Sampled many other reclining chairs. There’s even some which have a button that’ll stand you up. WALL-E’s predictions are coming true.
  • On Saturday, at Mercato, I ate a lot of meat.
