Just now I was looking for how to type an emdash on the Mac (and also, whether my intended use was actually correct). I found this great little article.
It looks like the version of Safari that comes with macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 now has the .dev domain added to its HSTS preload list. What this means is that if you run your development sites on a .dev top-level domain, like me, Safari will force it to use https.
Yesterday, a dangerous - and quite embarrassing - bug was uncovered in macOS High Sierra. It is possible to authenticate with the user "root" and no password in situations where the OS asks for an administrative account. Apparently, there is also a way to do so when you have access to the system using a guest account, which adds insult to injury, because this is a default feature of the OS that many people will have enabled (I don't, but that's mostly because I don't like the extra login option on the login screen - but when you think about it, it makes sense from a security...
It's been in development for literally years, now, from well before Drupal 8.0.0 was released (having kids has this severe effect on the amount of spare time you have for this sort of thing).
Certainly nothing new (it's from 2014), but this is a very comprehensive article about writing great commit messages.

Seems like Apple removed the keyboard shortcut for entering responsive design mode in the latest Safari update.— Eelke Blok (@eelkeblok) September 21, 2017

Last week, on wednesday May 24th, the annual Dutch Drupal conference DrupalJam had its 2017 edition in "De Fabrique" in Maarssen. After having been an attendee for quite some years, this time I submitted a proposal for a talk, which was accepted. I'm now happy to report the slides are available online: Drupal 8 Configuration Management, Workflows for Site Development.

If there's anything to know about Star Wars, it's that the very first film released, way back in my birth year of 1977, was amended with a rather confusing label, shortly after its first release (when it became clear there were going to be sequels): "Episode IV". Episodes V and VI followed only a few years later. When I first watched Star Wars (years later, I might add, I was proably ten or twelve), I figured it was a little gag, a way to make the story more mysterious and imply much had happened before it already.
