Trello classic label colours v2.0.0

I have updated my Trello classic label colours CSS hack using the Stylish extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

You can find the updates on my GitHub:

I have removed this style from Userstyles.org as it was throwing unknown errors or claiming that the CSS had an error every time I tried to upload changes.

Fix for Scrum for Trello (for Chrome)

I use Trello a lot. Trello is a simple but powerful, kanban-inspired project management tool which allows you to create cards on lists to visualise what work you still have to do, work in progress and work that is done. I use it to manage most of my projects, and indeed most of my life.

A few years ago, a couple of developers released Scrum for Trello, a Chrome and Firefox plugin that adds aglie story points functionality to Trello. (Story points help you see the relative size of a task compared with the others.)

I use it all the time, but recenty it broke. This is what I did to fix it.

Establishing digital at the heart of the University from IWMW 2016

I had a bit of a surprise this afternoon when I spoke with my sister Jenni on the phone.

“I saw that lecture you gave at the university, on YouTube,” she said.

“What lecture?”

Jenni sent me the link.

It turned out to be the one above, a talk given to the Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW) at John Moore’s University in Liverpool in 2016, on the eve of the infamous Brexit referendum.

There was an electricity outage at Lime Street station on the day we were meant to return to Scotland, so we hot footed it down to the Liverpool docks, hired a car and I drove back to Leuchars station where I’d parked my own car. Then I drove to Anstruther to place my vote firmly in the box that said: no I do not want to leave the EU.

Anyway, this was my talk, illustrated with a lot of LEGO-related slides.

You can use this example Trello board with all the labels to test if the Stylish script is working for you.

Adobe Dreamweaver CS4

I always loved the packaging of Adobe CS4 as much as the software

I live in a small, two-bedroom terraced house in the East Neuk of Fife. It is enough for my requirements just now, but I have too many things.

Inspired somewhat by The Minimalists, I’m in the process of clearing out stuff. Objects, belongings, things… clutter that I have carried with me for (in some cases many) years but for which I no longer have a need. As Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus say:

Love people, use things: because the opposite never works
