Lazy Git Shortcut

If you use git and are tired of typing git add . then git commit -a -m “your git message” then git push, add an alias function to your bash_profile to do it all in one quick command. The example below works on macOS but I would imagine it would work in Powershell in Windows. Save a few keystrokes with the shortcut!

function gcp() {
  git add .
  git commit -a -m "$*"
  git push
}

Then in your command line type: gcp fixed a bug

New Office Chair

Due to COVID-19, I have been working from home for the past few weeks. Fortunately, I have a nice office setup with a standing desk. I usually stand in the morning and sit in the afternoon. This gives me a good balance which is recommended when using a standing desk.

I quickly noticed that my office chair was not as good as the one I have at work. I realized it was 6 years old and time for an upgrade. The first resource I checked was Wirecutter. They recommended Steelcase and Herman Miller as their top choices but I decided I didn’t want to spend that much on a chair. Their budget choice was a company called Hon which was around $250. I researched the company and found the HON Ignition 2.0 which had good reviews. I decided to give it a try.

Overall I’ve been impressed with the chair. The assembly was a breeze and I had it put together in a few minutes. If you are looking for a $200-300 chair, I think the HON Ignition 2.0 is a good choice.

What office chair do you use?

Want Unlimited Coffee?

Yes, I do! That exactly what I thought when I saw Panera was starting an unlimited coffee subscription for $8.99/month. I thought, what a great deal! I spend more than that on coffee a month so this would be convenient and save me money. I signed up immediately and had been using it for the past couple of weeks until the COVID-19 pandemic happened. Because of the pandemic, they gave me the next 60 days for free which I felt was very generous.
