Tomorrow I get to switch from the rip blade to a finishing blade. Feels like quite the accomplishment. Related, I’ve been bitten hard by the carpentry bug.
As I keep seeing restaurants still open and new ones opening up at this point in the pandemic all I can think about is being taught first responsibility as the chef.
Don’t kill the guests.
Followed by or make them sick. Then you are responsible for the safety of the staff.
Sunday night is for testing anyway.
Didn’t wind up touching any code this weekend during #indiewebcamp. I did do a lot of writing that I hope to publish at some point. Which is kinda the point in having a blog. And as it often works out, the code issue I wasn’t seeing jumped right out tonight.
I and many others have been talking about the lack of knowledge a lot of web developers have of semantic HTML. Divitis. But some of the same dudes that blow off semantic HTML will go ballistic over poorly structured JSON data. Maybe we can trick them.
Nothing more meta than the 1st comment to @chriscoyier’s WordPress Comments Wishlist https://css-tricks.com/my-wordpress-comments-wishlist/
In all seriousness anytime someone mentions WordPress and Webmentions I get excited. Broader adoption is what’s needed, tools exist.
Seeing if I can knock out some bugs on my personal site I’ve been putting off so I can work on Jekyll IndieWeb this weekend.
IndieWebCamp East 2020 is an online gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, from graphic artists, to designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, actively work on creating for their own personal websites, and build upon each others creations.
Current me appreciates past me for putting a Docker file in this repo so I can pick up where I left off (8 months ago) without dealing with local environment.
Hey, I know, let’s give the guy with anxiety a drug you have to play wack-a-mole every month to get filled.
Down for just me but weather radar.
#lazyweb Anyone have a Composer file for installing WordPress core securely? I don’t want to rely on a fork of WP.
Anyone have recommendations for a visual database designer? SQLite specifically.
Turns out the two soil & water conservation board members (unpaid) I voted for had the most exciting platforms of anyone.
One of the very Florida things I get in my inbox is a heads up from a shrimp boat when they will be back in. Tomorrow I’ll be loading up. The stock I’m going to make with 5 pounds of shrimp heads will be epic.
Are hydrocolloids the autotune of cooking?
Reflecting on my group interview this week and I have to say, if I don’t get the position, it’s a lot better than not knowing why.
Thinking a lot about the web of trust.
That feeling when you spend an hour debugging why your ssh key isn’t accepted then you realize the git url you copied also included the
git clone that you had already typed.
Has anyone ever participated in a group interview where all the candidates are included?
Minute into the new Drive By Truckers and it’s just what the doctor ordered.
I’m fortunate to still not worry about a roof over my head or eating, but the strain of not finding a job & the PUA long gone, it’s rough. Can not even begin to imagine what those that don’t have my safety are dealing with. It’s inhumane.
Trying to zoom out a little. Feels like I’ve been looking through the microscope too long. The kicker in this piece from @ishaantharoor is why I think we need to be wary of over hyping everything we see that looks outrageous. <https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2020/10/06/us-election-biden-trump-putin-russia/>
Digital Ocean just launched the product I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been watching their development & new features & now they just rolled them all into a nice package. Will check off a big box. <https://www.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/>
I’m going to keep sayin this in as many ways as possible. Please, anything election related, check the time stamp before retweeting. Take a critical minute to confirm before amplifying. 4 weeks.
The algorithmic timeline is what will kill us all.
Thinking of the recent story about a wedding where there was an outbreak & 5 people died. They weren’t at the wedding but caught it from someone who was.
I’m probably going to regret not taking the dude at the convenience store up on a street fight after I snapped at him for calling the clerk a "Chinese bitch." Mind you he waited until he was far away before he did.
A lot of talk on the interwebs today about spreadsheets vs databases. As with most tech, there is no one size fits all solution, and it’s about the right tool for the job.
You know the cliche, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
