Read cPanel unleashes price hikes on its most dense customers by Richard SpeedRichard Speed (The Register)
Yeah - because hardware is better these days, we're going to need to charge you more. Much, much more...
cPanel has dropped a bombshell on its customers with a price hike for its services that has left some running for the door marked exit.

This must be why I saw Tim tweet this a few days ago:

👓 How To Make Your WordPress Admin Columns Sortable | Rachel Cherry

Read How To Make Your WordPress Admin Columns Sortable by Rachel CherryRachel Cherry (bamadesigner.com)
Custom WordPress admin columns can be pretty helpful for quickly viewing, and managing, your content from the main edit screen. So why not take the action up a notch by making your columns sortable?

I know that David Shanske has some work like this on his roadmaps for some of the IndieWeb plugin back ends, so I’m tagging him in the offhand chance that he can swipe some code and borrow the examples.

👓 Wrap-Up and Coverage for Düsseldorf 2019 | beyond tellerrand

Read Wrap-Up and Coverage for Düsseldorf 2019 by Marc Thiele (beyondtellerrand.com)
Where do I start? I mean, I run this event for nearly ten years now. Every time you think ”That’s it. It can’t get any better” and then you end the show and read, listen to and see all this wonderful and nice feedback. Wow, just incredible and fills me with a very warm and lovely feeling. Surely I am feeling exhausted. Empty. Tired. But the positive energy predominates. Energy that comes from people saying that they met many new friends, had exciting conversations and that my little event might have changed their life, or, at least, how they look at their day to day jobs and how they work. When I started beyond tellerrand, I never would have thought, that my event would have an impact for anyone. Honestly. I wanted to create a friendly and inspiring event, where people would feel welcome and spend two days with nice people. Two days, where they maybe could escape the daily routines and hectic. Two days, where phones and/or laptops mostly stay in their pockets and bags. Well, and now? I honestly feel like in a dream somehow. Thank you so, so much! With this wrap-up post, I want to give anyone who has been at the event a chance to look at everything that happened again as well as having a source for those who could not be there to watch all the videos, see blog posts by other people from the event and have a look at the many photos that had been taken. As usual I am going to update this blog post with new material as long as I find it or as long as people send stuff to me. If you have or find anything related to this event, that is not listed already, please let me know. Thanks. Kicking off the 2019 edition of beyond tellerrand. Photo: Juliane Schütz. Stats and Facts What I have recognised this year is, that many more people started using Instagram to document and talk about the event. Even though 2389 tweets had been made with the hashtag #btconf on Twitter, I had the feeling that more and more people use Instagram. Interesting also: we had less people using the wifi than ever before. Maybe also because people were following the talks more intensively. This year we had people from 24 countries in the house. Those countries, from A–Z, were: Argentina, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Gambia, Germany, Greece, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Poland, Singapore, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States. Wow. Thanks to the volunteer-team. Photo: Andreas Dantz. 14 wonderful volunteers were amongst those people. The core team is coming back for many, many years already and the names of those who helped running the event are: Alex, Andreas, Andy, Bartek, Daniela, Ewa, Jana, Jessica, Lisa, Patrick, Sven, Tom with Tanja (my lovely wife) and Guido leading the team. Absolutely fantastic to have such a stunning team. Thanks a lot! Side Events Before and After On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th, we already and as usual for the last five years met for the IndieWebCamp in Düsseldorf. Tantek and I organised this IWC and it once more was hosted by our friends at sipgate. Indie Web Camp no. 5 in Düsseldorf at sipgate. Photo: Juliane Schütz. For the very first time our friends at Wacom hosted our Pre-Conference Warm-Up. All 200 tickets were taken and Wacom did an amazingly wonderful job of creating a friendly environment for us to meet and greet at the evening before beyond tellerrand. Wacom gave us a home and too care of us with drink, snacks and a DJ. Thank you so much! We furthermore had four sessions between the regular schedule: a Breakfast Session with Liam Griffin for Shopify, one Lunch-Time Session by Christoph Reinartz for trivago, another Lunch-Time Session with Chris Heilmann and the Working Draft Podcast for Microsoft, and an Evening-Break Session with Fabien Benetou for Mozilla. Thanks everybody for the session! Joschi Kuphal organised another Accessibility Club around beyond tellerrand. The first one in Düsseldorf and smaller than his conference in Berlin, but with around 70 attendees a well attended one with presentations and bar camp like sessions during the whole day. Photos This year Norman Posselt, Florian Ziegler, Juliane Schütz and Andreas Dantz officially took photos at the event, but other people shot some amazing photos as well. Anything I got or found so far is listed below. Florian Ziegler was part of the beyond tellerrand family again and captured the atmosphere in lovely black and white photos during the days. Juliane Schütz comes to Düsseldorf for a while now. Always known for amazing photos at the Indie Web Camp as well as beyond tellerrand, she caught this year’s edition in a mix of black and white as well as color shots. Andreas Dantz captured the show on stage and in the exhibition in this great set of photos. Long time friend and supporter with sipgate Axel Topeters created this set of lovely photos from two days in Düsseldorf. Juliane Schütz also created photo sets of day 1 and day 2 at the
