I bought a new monitor arm so that I can raise my laptop up off the desk and align it into a better position. I wasn’t really using the laptop screen, which I felt was a shame considering how nice is it compared to my main monitor.
I got the Fully Jarvis Dual Monitor Arm with laptop tray, in white. I’d heard good things about it, but after months of casually researching I suddenly took the plunge because I was fed up of looking.

So far, I like it.

You can save a file in vim without any autocommands by using
:noa w. I needed this recently because I have certain filetypes auto-formatted upon save, but I was saving some fixture data that I didn’t want formatted and this did the job.
stripecli is really nice for testing webhooks from Stripe. Usually I lean on
ngrokto make my local development server accessible to the Internet.
stripecli makes this unnecessary. You can listen for Stripe webhook events on your local machine messing with any networking. You can also forward those events onto a local development server using the
I haven’t felt very productive this week, due to factors. Anxiety, man.
