👋🏼 Hello!

So I kind of inadvertently took a month off my side projects, including Thought Shrapnel. This was due to a death in the family, holiday, and generally trying to chill out a bit over the summer.

That means I'm only really getting back into things after that break, so I don't have a massive list of articles to share with you, sorry. Chances are, you're probably trying to have a bit of a break too, though... right?

I updated to a design that uses less than 1KB. For those not aware, that's very small in size. So not only should it instantly load, but it reduces my digital carbon footprint ever so slightly, which is something we all need to be seriously thinking about given the IPCC report.
