GitHub CLI is in beta

You know when you’re working away on your development, perhaps a website or a WordPress plugin, and you check in to Git using the command line, but then you have to switch over to the browser in order to create the pull request in GitHub?  Well not anymore!

Windows 10 search bar broken

For the past couple of days, my laptop’s search bar has been broken, just returning a blank box and no results, which has been driving me nuts.  For some reason, not quite nuts enough to Google for a solution, but then one came up randomly in my Twitter feed… If your Windows 10 start menu…

New project – Compare the Project

Today I am announcing a new project that I’ve been working on for a little while now… Compare the Project. If you don’t work with SITS:Vision then this project really isn’t going to mean much to you, by which I mean that it’s really really niche.  But hopefully, for the right people, it’s super useful. In…
