My Recommended Web Dev Sources

1 min read

As a web developer, one of my challenges is keeping up-to-date. So I follow a lot of different web development publishing sources. Amongst others, these are the main ones I find myself reading the most articles from:

Stephen Colbert on Twitter

Isaac Asimov would have been 100 today. He published in every category of the Dewey Decimal system. After reading him your mind work better. Too many great quotes. Here’s one: “Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right.”

Nokia 8110 4G Requests - Part 1

Nokia 8110 4G banana yellow and black side to side

Gathering a list of issues and changes I would like to see fixed on my 4G phone.

Most of these issues can be fixed with a hypothetical software update. So it's up to HMD Global (@NokiaMobile) to work on the apps and system software on the phone and release a new update - preferably sooner than later.

And the WhatsApp integration should be implemented by Facebook Team WhatsApp of course.

List of software nuisances:

  • WhatsApp is running on the phone, but is lacking in these ways:
    • No https://web.whatsapp.com support, even-though the phone has a QR-reading-cabable camera on board
    • Received videos have a maximum file size of 8MB, so anything bigger than that cannot be opened, at all. Memory limitations?
    • No calling
    • No video chat
  • No emoji input - This makes me really sad. 😅
  • No CalDAV and CardDav sync support - would have been great to be able to easily synchronize contacts outside of Google or Apple sync.
  • The volume controls are practically useless as the phone has three volume settings even-though it has a scale from vibrate to 15, the actual volume stages are "Really Loud", "Loud" or "vibrate".
  • The phone gets really hot during calls - not sure if software or hardware related to be honest.

It would be awesome if this list could be marked off soon.

A couple of months I've gone "Indie" with most of my software setup. Using as my ONLY browser and for reading email and keeping a calendar. The calendar and contacts server is self-hosted and syncs with Sabre's . My social-media platform and CMS is - which I'm also actively supporting. The community is fantastic!

Going to start planning in deliberate "learning" or "reading" hours into my day schedule.
