Concordia is a fun board game. We’ve played before but I got into it a lot more this time around. All the mechanics feel quite neat and polished.
I feel like I shipped a lot of code this week. We started rolling out a replacement for our fatal error handling, which will eventually allow us to burn down a haunted forest that I’ve had my eye on since the beginning of the year.
I’ve also been playing around with a new solution for logging. For historical reasons, we have three large and complicated logging libraries for FT.com. I think (thanks to writing a massive test suite) I’ve condensed all of these into a new very simple Pino-based alternative. I’m having fun!
On Saturday we went to a Halloween party, I kept it simple with an understated (and easy to remove) Number 10 Downing Street costume. It’s been a scary thing.
I broke out my craft supplies and spent ages constructing the letterbox, but then I ran out of steam and couldn’t be bothered to make a 3D doorknob.
The party was really fun, the Sunday afterwards was less fun.
We started watching Love is Blind season 3. I think it’s maybe getting a little over-produced and I’m not as attached to anyone as in the previous seasons. There are some disaster people and plenty of walking red flags.
I’m switching more of my online social stuff to Mastodon now that Musk owns Twitter. I don’t think it’s gonna be a nice place to be. It’s probs not been that nice for a long time and Mastodon seems quite chill and friendly. I’m @email@example.com.
