Had a eureka! moment earlier as to how I'm going to COVID-safe my house for trick-or-treaters...

It involves puppeteering a mechanical arm from behind a super creepy looking horned figure, that my wife and I made from a decorative mask, some tattered cloth, and her sewing mannequin.

horned figure peering creepily out the window of the front of my house

No mechanical arm in that photo, but you get the picture. We're going to open the window ☝️ and have this creep hand out candy on our behalf.

I love Halloween! πŸŽƒ

I've started to run a11y tests before any build/deploy, I do care about a11y, but I still got a lot to learn in that area.

It's not bullet proof, but it's a start.

@Julien That's exactly the right approach to it.

Wrote a small Helloween-themed CSS snippet. I wanted to do something like this, but I lacked the inspiration.

I'm really how it turned out. I'm currently reading Lovecraft's stories and I've decided to go along with the theme and create something based on Lovecraft's work.

Enjoy at your own peril. See if you dare link the Tome Of Darkness to your mortal soul.

Well, I had a few tiny wins.

So... cheers 🍻

  1. Got my "congratulations for coming aboard!" CTO meeting.
  2. Set up a meeting to work with another startup under my "umbrella of startups working on modular code that benefits multiple startups" model (a technical co-founder so I don't have to do all the coding work, and a recent boot camp grad - never too soon to start!).
  3. Finally signed up for Y Combinator's free Startup School (gib vouchers blz). PG's initial post on ideation is amazing.
