I just need more time, the day currently has not enough hours for me to finish all the things I want to do in a day. Do some blendering, some writing, some coding, or just some relaxing and watching TV

Quick Update for July

I need to get that blog post published in July or I won’t have an archive entry for July 2020. There was actually a blog post planned for almost a month now but something kept me from writing here. Yes I’ve build my PC and for the last 4 weeks, a game has gotten my … more →

A small sign of life

Yeah, I’m still around, it was a strange and stressful time the last two weeks and it came out of nowhere. It will be like this for another two weeks and then I will have two weeks off where I big plans. So what happened? Well, work did happen. Out of nowhere, I was suddenly … more →

Grissu cleaning herself

A lot has happened in April

I thought it would be nice to make a recap once again (mentioned this in yesterday’s blog post, this was written mainly before that one), the last one I did was in December 2018 I think. But since I did so much in the last month I thought I’d go through it again, you know, … more →

Trying to create a routine

With the upcoming work situation changing for the unforeseeable future, I thought it would be a good time to get back into some routines. So starting with tomorrow I think I will do the following: start the day with 20-30 minutes riding the bike do my fitness routine every second day, at least 3 times … more →

A Small Update

It’s a crazy time and I didn’t expect it to get this bad, but that’s the situation now, so let’s make the best of it. On my end, I was busy the first half of the month by finishing the corporate website for my employer. It was an interesting project, creating such a big website … more →

SoaPatrick is closed due to extreme heat. Once the temperature will drop to a human-friendly level, I will get back to writing and doing stuff, but for now, it’s time to have cold thoughts.

Time for a quick status update on the Factory…

Time for a quick status update on the Factory. I’ve done some more work over there, included many past projects which were missing and finally added tags to the Factory Items. I’ve also done some small optical changes to the website, maybe you notice them. I’m slowly working my way through my backlog.

Did a lot of work behind the scenes…

Did a lot of work behind the scenes. Redesigned the Status, Link and Quotes Formats and I went through all 500+ Blog Posts and reformated them for Gutenberg. I might go through them once more and choose Tags much more wisely. But now I’m tired and will rest a bit.

It was a stressful week and I need a breather, so …

It was a stressful week and I need a breather, so there’s nothing to report except to report that nothing new will be up tonight. I’m off to bed to get some sleep and have new energy tomorrow and maybe find time to post something meaningful again.

Was preparing something cool for tomorrow so there won’t be a big update today, but be sure to check back tomorrow! Oh and I’ve improved the drawing from Wednesday.

The Soap Factory just opened its doors once again! So far only with images and no detail page, that will follow once I’ve included all the recent Factory Items.

I’m feeling a bit under the weather, had plans for a follow up on yesterdays Blog Post but I was missing the needed energy, therefore just a short status update.

Ready for the Academy Awards, will be another long night and hopefully one with a few nice surprises. Unfortunately, I didn’t see all the nominees but I’m hoping for certain winners. There will be a longer and more interesting update tomorrow.

After a long break I used the iPad as a drawing tool, was a lot of fun using the pencil again. I kinda missed it actually, but of course, it helps to have a day off to use it because drawing takes so much time. But who knows, I might use it again more often in the near future and some cool stuff. The work I did today will be shown a bit later, it’s something I’ve drawn for a special occasion.

I was watching Super Bowl LII last night or better yet this morning so I’m still kinda tired. Was an awesome game though with the perfect winner. More an all this tomorrow

I created a new folder with a starter theme from underscores for a possible version Five. I’m not sure when and IF this page gets a new design, but I love the idea of a dark theme, you know to save battery on all those OLED screens, so I’ll see where this will go.

I made some housecleaning on my blog (removed old Themes and Plugins I don’t use anymore) and also some old Blogs who used up Databases. And at the same time thought I could finally use Git to develop and deploy changes to the theme. It’s a much more streamlined development workflow now which hopefully brings lots of benefits, especially for a possible future new design.

Find stuff…

I’ve added ‘Find Stuff’ functionality and a Storage. The search looks quite good, but the Storage is done in a way that it works for now but I might tinker with it some more later on. That was probably the most urgent thing to do, anything else for now is bonus.

Should be working on the Theme

I realized that by updating daily, I need to work on the page, it desperately needs a search and an archive. So hopefully I will be able to add these features very soon. Also much more tags, not all entries can be labeled ‘Thoughts’. Writing down ‘Thoughts’ is all I do here.
