I swear these shots are the two seconds right before a truly epic fight scene between us and the quarantine zombie horde.

Anyways we're married now.

Look out zombies.

yep that is for sure the slow way to do bulk record creation in django

The world may end, but until it does I’m going to continue as if everything matters.

So here's a question: How do we educate Twitter users that inevitably say "Well I logged onto the Fediverse and didn't find anything interesting!" because there's no evil algorithm mindlessly pushing them towards whichever content it deems more profitable?

Me just saying "Yes you have to actually go LOOK for interesting content. Follow people with things that interest you in their profiles. Start conversations. It's WORTH it!" hasn't worked very well thus far.

Starting to think Dr Pepper might be a bad idea allergy-wise.

It's in the repository. I'm looking at it right now. You saw it 20 minutes ago. Now you've never heard of it and can't build anything.

Ye gods, Maven is depressing.

Spent so far at least a week on Java thing mostly getting errors further along in the dev / deploy flow. It's *close* to successful deployment. I'm sure of it.

Meanwhile some datasette for casual exploration of the app's data — in one minute.

Anyways time to eat.

ok i gotta write some python or something now before i start screaming

though screaming could be fun

I'm learning so much with this Java project! Not so much about Java, but goodness sure have picked up a lot of XML knowledge I haven't needed for 15 years.

Was just wondering if there's anything worse than this, and I imagined basically this but for a large Node project from today and it's 2030.

@randomgeek I feel like Java™ should be the last line in a Burma Shave ad here.

Proud of myself. I had a great idea, started trying it, and stopped myself within five minutes of it looking more like a terrible idea.

Get an error.

Change a number in a config setting.

Get a different error.

Is it better? Is it worse? Is it maybe the same?

I don't know.


It's amazing to me how many things in NodeJS were just defined by convention (e.g. the "browser" member in package.json or "dist" folders) and now it's all starting to get kind of formalized.

The downside is that we're trending toward gigantic config files that are so complicated you probably need a tool like to just build it for you. I.e. my greatest fear is NodeJS is just becoming Java 😂

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
