  • Re-imagineering the event in Simply Remind Me

    Rapidly approaching 500 new users this year, my free email and simple text message reminder app – Simply Remind Me – is earning a loyal following in the world.

    In July, I had 131 new users that have signed up in 2023.  As of today, I’ve trebled this to 466.

    All of these new users are bringing great suggestions and feedback – particularly from a competitor’s service that stopped working earlier this year.

    I’m rolling all this feedback and suggestions into a complete overhaul of the “event experience” which I’m excited to preview today.

    It seems like everyone is suffering from rising costs and unfortunately my applications are no exception. My payment gateway is raising their fees for both UK and international cards, which means I’ve had to rethink my pricing for Simply Remind Me – my free email reminder app and simple text and call reminder app.

    OctoberCMS is a proprietary content management system built on the amazing Laravel PHP framework. This is a significant change for me both personally, and technically, for 2 key reasons.

  • Manage software package upgrades on Linux with NodeBeagle

    Updates for devices running the Linux operating system come in the form of packages. Using the Linux system’s package manager, you install new packages and upgrade them as new versions are released.

    Now sure you can log onto each Linux device and run apt update && apt upgrade, or dnf update, depending on your distribution. But what if you have several – even hundreds – of devices to keep updated? And how do you know what new updates are available?

  • Happy New Year! Welcome, 2022…

    2021 started with much hope of vaccines to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, alas it wasn’t enough.

    A year – and three vaccines later – and there is no end yet in sight. Although hospitalisations are steady, despite the rising number of cases of the Omicron variant, so maybe there is a glimmer of hope for 2022.

    As I reflect on the last year, I’ve made some achievements I’m proud of – both personal and professional.
