As web hosting gets cheaper and programming languages, like Go, can handle large amounts of traffic, I’m starting to see a move back to SSR to simplify the whole stack. And it’s easy to see why:

The family went to Edinburgh for a short weekend break at the beginning of half term.
During the pandemic, I worked long hours and started drinking more to combat the stress. As a result, my weight ballooned. Invariable, I never shifted the weight once the pandemic was over. Finally, during Christmas 2022, I decided I needed to stop drinking.
I started by doing dry January. However, after six or seven weeks of not drinking, I’m beginning to see my gut reduce in size.

So, I’ve decided to stay off the booze.
I have a new job. The start date isn’t till the 22nd of May as I need to work twelve weeks notice at my current position. At fifty three, it’s a little daunting changing jobs, but I’m also excited at the new challenge.
I applied for the position before Christmas. I got shortlisted and had to perform a short technical test to make sure I could actually write a program before securing an interview. I interviewed in January and got offered the position but its taken a while to complete all the employment pre-checks.
Over the next twelve weeks I’m going to write a post mortem reflection of the last seven years and document the project I’ve devoted myself to during that time.

By writing down what I watch I can review how much TV I consume. It’s shocking, but here is the list for February:
