Pinned toot

introduction, long toot 

Pleased that my brain popped up with the solutions for several tricky code problems, though I really would've preferred to have it do so a bit earlier in the day.

I have a feeling I'm gonna be reminded about this commit when I run git blame in a year.

  • sees mistake
  • writes notes for 15-step plan to fix said mistake.
  • 🤔
  • Next note: "Or I could just replace the file with the mistake. Jesus."

Found my phone.

That’s my new chair, in front of the old chair. New chair creaks less.

I remain fascinated that this is a thing. The linked podcast episode is worth listening to.

but I did some work and assembled a new office chair! I'll post a pic

um

maybe after I find my phone.

Also I left my phone somewhere probably somewhere nearby but I don't know where and the ringer is off so if you need to reach me uh

Maybe I should try a nap before doing anything else.

Wait no that's the process for path B but I'm on path A so I gotta go back to the beginning.

Work is fun.

🌶️ : Im going to stop buying into the industry narrative about ad blockers. They are not ad blockers, they are content blockers. The content I am choosing to control happens to come from advertising networks that have proven to be vectors for malware infections and misbehaviour for years. I'm not blocking ads, I'm not stealing from you, I'm protecting my systems just like I would with an anti-virus program.

Booted into Windows before work to see the Docker preview update that uses WSL 2 and now I'm all antsy to get back home.

I'm sure Windows is more stable than Linux, but not the way I use Windows.

the real beauty of having a docs/ folder in your code repo is it helps the team keep all our lies in one place.

Wikis are fine
Guru is cool
Email just no
Slack's worse than email
whatever
Convenient I guess
But I've come to believe
the best place for code docs
is docs/ in your code

$ pydoc FILE.py
problem in FILE.py - AppRegistryNotReady: Apps aren't loaded yet.

Once again reminded that pydoc is not perldoc. Few tools are, unfortunately.

Recommended reading list for programmers by Alan Kay. Some interesting choices in there. I imagine a lot of these are older than most of our community.

"Experienced programmers and computer scientists, what are some really old (or even nearly forgotten) books you think every new programmer should read?"

Did a brew update this morning

and in work news, I ❤️ git switch

I know that sounds catty, and it kind of is. However, comma, security systems that make it easy to screw up and get into an insecure configuration with no appreciable degredation of performance are inherently dangerous.

Silently failing-insecure (or failing open) is dangerous.
