There is inherently different approaches necessary when building an open source tool meant to be open and adaptable vs building a tool for a very specific task and putting an MIT license on it & putting it on GitHub.

So. D3.js is the missing piece to something I’ve wanted to build for a while. Researching something entirely different. Funny how that can happen.
The last weekend of Feeder Watch so both using it as an excuse to be extra lazy on the porch as well as plot another one of my half cocked ideas—how to track them myself.
In case you are wondering why you should hire me, I navigated this pandemic without having to stare down an empty toilet paper aisle once.
I think I just pivoted.
You know the scene in Colors where Robert Duvall tells Sean Penn the story about the old bull & the young bull? I think about that story a lot.
Release the last season of Luther please & thank you.
@simonw perhaps you’ve covered this somewhere? How do you centralize your SQLite db?
Not to be lost in the conversation about number of deaths annually from cars—we SHOULD de-emphasize single automobile transportation & emphasis public transportation, bikes & better pedestrian safety.
Digital agencies are just like a restaurant. Client Dev are the service staff, design is pastry, video is the bar. Developers are the line cooks.
Amidst all of my screaming into the void including cussing out a stranger, I think I cracked a mental block on something. Not broken all the way through, but a long deep crack to give me something to grab onto.
This new tool recently popped up on my radar and looking forward to learning more about it tomorrow. Sheet Mapper from @mapbox lets you use a Google Sheet as a data source for a map including pop-up info. Informal webinar link here <https://www.mapbox.com/webinars/sheet-mapper>
Two thumbs of fresh ginger grated, two limes juiced & rinds thrown in. 1 qt hot water. Steep 20 minutes, strain, chill, carbonated in DrinkMate. Ice, simple syrup. First run was tasty. Good ginger bite. Could even be cut with filtered water before carbonating.
Ok universe, how about throwing me one in the fucking plus column.
Is there a better example of technical debt than the Florida unemployment website? 77 million, 14 million over budget, bugs never fixed, internal annual audits reminding it is still broken, but defunded based on current use?
I need a gardening guru in Florida to follow. Any recommendations? Edible not edible, doesn’t matter. The climate here is just too different from most I see online.
As a user, I’m excited about what Dark Sky’s acquisition by Apple will mean for better, hyper-local results.
As a web person I’m worried about the loss of yet another API. Wunderground shuttered theirs last year. Dark Sky ends end 2021. What else is out there?
I was a Super Big Gulp Coke a day kinda person before this started. Bought a DrinkMate to help. This could become an obsessive pursuit.
First time getting a chance to use the GitHub CLI tool. Spinning up a new repo from the command line always seemed like a pain.
gh repo create <name> auth, done. <https://cli.github.com/>
Wonder what the divide in society will be in 25 years between those that have a Switch now & those that don’t?
I would forever be in debt to to someone that can help me hook up a ELPDC21 to a MacBook Air.
So I hit 3rd week on lockdown today. Save for a couple of trips for food/medicine, I haven’t been with a group of people since I attended a memorial service. Which let me tell you, is a weird thing in of itself. Will my next social interaction also be a funeral?
If you have an old laptop or tablet laying around that can handle streaming, there’s a good chance a kid in your community could use it. Keep an eye on your local schools.
Just a reminder. This is not normal, and this is hard. No one should expect you to figure it out over night. They haven’t.
Anyone familiar with Calendly & Zoom integration? Can a user just use their zoom account to sign up for a meeting time? Not presenter, just attendees who would sign up for a time slot. Think teacher/students.
Think I’m looking for the civic tech/public education crossover.
Two weeks ago I was asked to resign from the company that had just awarded me employee of the month 2 weeks earlier because the things I said had to be implemented—issue tracker, branches, coding standards, documentation—was too much. It’s been a long 2 weeks.
Knocked out a big chunk of back yard chore, but now faced with the "but I need to go to Home Depot to finish" blocker.
How about reviving the CCC & create a digital WPA when this all settles down.
