However I recently had to choose if I was going to renew this domain and I was doing a couple more fun techy things so I thought I'd re-start the blog and use the impetus of having shelled out for a .best domain for another year as a way to return me to the blog and to doing tech stuff in my spare time.
Not entirely sure exactly where I'm going to go with this. I will probably try and get the app up and working again, although it is successfully (ish) running in its hosted environment (lunch.ben.best) the version locally isn't working and upgrading my ageing mac appears to have killed off Git. So my plan for this evening is to get things up and running again. I've got an idea for a different app and I want to have a play with some other languages (I've been meaning to look at clojure and scala serverside and coffeescript for ages).
So I'm going to spend this evening getting things up and running again, I've just installed a new ssd into my ageing laptop and that is feeling a bit like a new machine. I'll let you know how it goes and if what I decide to do.
In the meantime here's a short, silent video of me replacing the hard drive:
