More CI fighting this week. Getting Cypress tests to behave predictably in CI has been more configuration tweaking than I would have liked. I still get the sense that these will be fragile going forwards.

📚 Books

2 books finished this week - “Never Let Me Go” - Kazuo Ishiguro and “Sputnick Sweetheart” - Haruki Murakami. I’ve definitely enjoyes Murakami a lot more, possibly one of the best opening chapters I’ve ever read. It drags you straight into what is a reasonably short novel with not a word wasted.

Ishiguro, on the other hand, seems to have lots of spare words. The slow reveal in this style just didn’t really work for me, although I can see how the style could work for some people. I remember not finding the film particularly enjoyable either.
