So today in side project , I decided I was going to get back to writing an Elm-based web app to wrap my Elixir-based API.

As I usually do, I updated Erlang, updated Elixir then updated . Well wasn’t that the big mistake.

We'll also endeavour to use the hashtag to that you can create a list just for tracking such announcements.

While we were creating this instance I ended up typing `nitech` a lot. I also watched Office Space.

Now I can't see us as anything but INITECH.
