Thank you. I think I went down from about 96 on mobile to 70 odd. Was a huge drop.

I've been on the fence about dropping gatsby for awhile. I don't think I am really using react enough to justify it, and all the extra js/json did the exact same to my site last year.

I successfully negotiated my first dev compensation package. It was tough and I made a ton of mistakes along the way, but after 2 weeks of negotiating, I was finally able to sign the offer letter this week :)

Completed updating one of my series here:

Wrote 3 more chapters for my new book, going slower than I had planned, but still happy with the progress made so far. Had planned to finish it by this month end, but looks like early-to-mid Feb is more likely at this point. Also, I'm getting the book cover done by a professional instead of my own shitty designs - talked to an artist this week and I hope it'll come out great, fingers crossed.

Did a ZIM ZOOM which was fun - so announced the ZIM Cat 03 launch on ZOOM and sort of felt like a Tech Tycoon at some big conference! A conference of 10 but still fun none-the less. Here is the promo video youtube.com/watch?v=tFd4fBP7V_c - if fast moving pics is troublesome for you, please do not click. Cheers!

I finished startremote.dev. I haven't completed many of my side projects lately. Started around 5, finished none. So it felt good, even if it's 10x smaller than the rest.
