Week Note Six - Tutti Frutti

Post recovery

After achieving two negative status via LFT tests in a space of two days, it was the all clear to return to normality or that is society? It was also the week of returning to work and it was tough because of the brain fog, sluggish thinking, and overwhelming sense of tiredness. Thankfully, with the support of friends and family, it was managable. The fatigue will eventually go with energy coming back in waves. Onwards we go!

My motivation and passionate is in the toilet, although being told it is January blues. Yet this is a weird one where it feels like mojo has disappeared completely as it feels like everything is running on autopilot. Covid scattered my plans and memories around the place at the moment.


I have been in two minds about running Docker because of their recent license agreements and a kind friend pointed out about Colima. In short:

Container runtimes on macOS (and Linux) with minimal setup.

Colima - Github

For what it is, it is quick to get it up and running. There are some quirks because it is still in development that I am trying to figure out why my files aren't being detected by the container to show my changes. Looks like it is an evening of debugging to find out why.

On the other hand, it is good to know there are excellent alternatives out there.

Book reading

It is all quiet on the reading front where I am still reading The Brain that Changes Itself. The way I see this book is that it is a good starter's guide into neuroplasticity where you can do your own research into the subject. As a cochlear implant user, it is true that the face 'use it or lose it' can be a stark insight how we can learn when our body parts are being transformed by the brain.

And finally...

Should I stay or should I go by The Clash wins for this week regarding the Horrible Tories.

Stay safe, tabs and vim are your friends.
