I’m currently reading Neal Stephenson’s “Fall; or, Dodge in Hell” and it includes a description of a band called Pompitus Bombasticus.
This seemed like the perfect music to listen to when I’m programming. I was disappointed to find out Pompitus Bombasticus does not exist. However, if you too are in search of the mythical Pompitus Bombasticus, I suggest you check out the group Two Steps from Hell (which does actually exist).
When setting up a new site using PHPUnit 8.x and PHP 7.2, I got the error message: setUp() must be compatible with PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase::setUp Because we can now define the method as returning no value (with :void) and this is part of the method definition starting in PHPUnit 8.0.0, we need to add this in our […]
When using the WordPress plugin [The Events Calendar](https://theeventscalendar.com/) by Modern Tribe the default link in the calendar will point to the Event page. However, sometimes we want to point this link to the Event Website value (which we can set when creating the event). This is the code I use to do this.
I spend most of my time doing my writing in markdown. One of the features I have mixed feelings about, is auto-numbering of ordered. There are often times when I need to modify the numbering. I like to do this by adding a backslash (\) before the period after the number, which renders the list as text.

I was working with an SVG and when it was sized down too small it became pixelated.
When downloading video from my iPhone to my Mac using Image Capture, I sometimes (but not always) get the error, “The operation couldn’t be completed. (com.apple.ImageCaptureCore error -9956.) (-9956)”. This is how I work around this error.
How to install dependencies with Composer (while ignoring your cached local versions). Typically, we shouldn’t have to do this but if we’re trying to recreate problems someone else is having it can be helpful.
I use Junegunn’s Vim plugin vim-easy-align to make it easier to align my code. This plugin does not have a default mapping for aligning the dollar sign ($). Because the plugin is designed to be extensible, I was able to add support for aligning by the dollar sign ($) by adding some lines to my .vimrc file.
When I do a git rebase and I get a conflict, I can use git log to see all the commits rebased thus far. However, I often get confused about what the current (incomplete) commit is that caused the conflict. It would be super helpful if I could see the commit message of the current commit. This command allows you to view the current (incomplete) commit during a rebase.
