I mean I make music. But I like coding. I contain multitudes.

A 16th century book describes a world filled with your mother.


after a bit of research there's a bunch of alternatives.

So I'm going to try and replace Hubspot & Mailchimp with Mautic

I'm gonna replace google drive with Nextcloud

I'm gonna replace google Analytics with Matomo

Long as my site speed remains sensible.

And I can have a tickbox.

How about Mautic? appears to be open source. That looks liek a good thing. Wonder how I can install it?

Let me go delve.

And I have to create a jourley with Mailchimp that goes

--> new subscriber?

--> send one email with discount code.

This is not part of the free bit. To do this I have to pay $10 / month

which I'm not earning from the site at all yet.

so I have to think of a more interesting way to do this. Maybe just without mailchimp? that would be better.

Just need to get confirmation sent to these people first. that's the trouble.

This. This is what will happen.

I said it in Jan-Feb and I’ll say it again…

A high infection rate in a partially-vaccinated population is the PERFECT recipe for selective breeding of vaccine-resistant strains.

This irresponsible govt is not just a danger to us, but to the world.

So. you go to my website and fill in the sign up form at the bottom

--> this gets pinged to Hubspot* because of theme integration

--> then Zapier picks this up and sends it over to Mailchimp.

--> mailchimp then should be in a position to send out one email with a discount code.

That's what I have to work on next.

* Hubspot is supposed to send out a confirmation email with a discount code on it, but it doesn't because it's dumb.

Think I might have sorted the mail sync out. What a palaver. Automation is dumb.

Just testing it and when it works I'll give you the flow.

Trying to make signup forms to join a mailing list is an absolute nightmare.

So, hey, I'm a translator. And I'm pretty much *always* looking for more work.

I translate to and from Polish.

Not the most in-demand language in the English-speaking world, but if you need a translation done or know someone who does, hit me up.

I'm good at what I do, I have low rates, and I can work pretty damn fast if that's what you need.

I am also pretty versatile, I've translated everything from literature to marketing to technical stuff.


Today: coffee and making noises.
