Quizmonkey now with added Vue.js

Sep
25
I moved my quizmonkey code over from React to Vue.js just to try out Vue.js and see how it worked. I like it, I like the .vue files with html templates, javascript, and css all neatly laid out, and I like using events. The router was easy to set up too, though I'm sure I'm still doing something wrong as there seems to be a bit too much "boilerplate" repeating code. Still more studying to do.

Quizmonkey is still the same, play it here it's just the code behind it that has all changed... One new feature though now I have routing I can link directly to a category dive straight into the oscars quiz

vuejs.org

Maybe I'll move this site over to that tech too?

Glossary:

javascript: a major programming language of the internets, mostly how I make my living

Fabulous weekend

Sep
25
Mum and Dad visiting, certainly felt like a bit of a rush this weekend, but I think we squeezed some stuff in. They arrived Friday afternoon while I was at work. I say "they" but it's YOU isn't it no-one else is reading this... YOU went to the youngest boy's assembly at school, seems to have been a bit churchy, he has come home with a bible. I have put it in a safe place... Then on to gymnastics so I forewent my regular 5pm trip to the Inn Doors to go to that too. I missed the youngest's class but went along with the eldest to see him, he's doing well, nice flipping over on the vault. Back for pasta for tea what Clare had made and then Dad and I went back to the aforementioned pub.

Back with more details later, time for work...

Crazy price variations on that bag

That mini rucksack I was looking at from Eagle Creek was down to 瞿40 again last week, this week it's back up over 瞿51. Strange.

No coffee did not help the not sleeping

Sep
21
I had no coffee at all on Tuesday but still slept badly Tuesday night. Woke up not feeling tired on Wednesday though so that's not bad. Then slept badly last night too, again, almost no coffee, and even a glass of wine. Today again, I know I have not slept well, but not feeling too tired.

Wasted steps

Did the school run this morning, even though Clare was doing it too, just to see the little tiddlers into school. Walking back the long way I realised I LEFT MY FITBIT ON CHARGE! Totally wasted steps, I have to walk even further today to hit my step count target.

Working from home today, feel like I'm not making huge progress though, little blockers everywhere.

AAARGH no more free Legoland tickets

Sep
19
I have been the hero of the PTA for the last three years as I have always got free Legoland tickets from work for the Summer fair raffle and christmas fair raffle. And this year I can't! Everyone thought it was a foregone conclusion (I'm lucky they have not printed it on the raffle tickets already). For the same reason we could not get discounted tickets in the Summer holidays, I can no longer get work freebies for good causes. I can get some airport lounge passes, but this is not as exciting a headline prize. Hmm maybe they will kick me out of the PTA now? That was basically my only contribution...

Have remembered no coffee so far today.

Remind me today, no coffee

Sep
19
Today is traditionally "no sleep Tuesday", since we have been doing crazy fad diets I have failed to sleep on a Tuesday. My latest theory is after a Monday at home where I have one or two coffees, when I come back to the office I get loads of coffees. So going to try and cut that out today, still have the diet dinner, and then see how I sleep tonight...

Slept fine last night I think, I did have an exhausting PTA meeting earlier in the evening though.

Watched the last available episode of Strike last night, no more until next year, when they are making the third Cormoran Strike book.
