Managing homebrew package updates

I’ve taken to upgrade homebrew packages once a week on Monday morning, and replacing any packages that cause issues in my workflow and managing them some other way. This seems to work quite well, and is a better workflow than waiting until a new package needs to be installed and then breaking lots of things.

I was using macOS mail rules to sort mail into “Feed” and “Papertrail” inbox subfolders but iOS mail badges are frequently incorrect or delayed. Does it work better when using server rules?

Splitting up the example cuttlefish blog application from the cuttlefish framework, so that I can include more features to specialise both, as well as build multiple application types.

One of the under appreciated aspects of technical debt is that it makes it harder to get flow; certainly dealing with niggles and workarounds distracts developers from thinking holistically about a problem.
