Just watched Obama’s eulogy for John Lewis on SkyNews in case you were wondering if the rest of the world is watching.
Got the "assume good intentions" line again today. Guess that’s the orgs mantra. Good luck with that.
I’m not going to start a Debian upgrade at 11pm. I’m not going to start a Debian upgrade at 11pm. I’m not going to start a Debian upgrade at 11pm…
Always took documentation for granted, at least until last year when the lack thereof created a bad situation that could have been avoided with better docs. ❤️these docs on writing docs from Vue “A feature doesn’t exist until it’s well documented.” https://v3.vuejs.org/guide/contributing/writing-guide.html#vue-docs-writing-guide
Changing default repo branch names is but a small step toward inclusive language across tech, but is not a replacement for systemic change and recognizing that black lives matter in ALL aspects of our life.
3 years ago I first wrote about the idea of deprecating the use of master. Times have changed and the tools and consensus has changed to reflect that thought. Git recently updated to allow global config changes to use a different default branch name at creation.
GitHub is working towards these goals, and while some changes have been inplemented, they are promising later this year a seamless migration path for existing repositories, which is important for large projects with lots of contributors and forks.
Scott Hanselman has a great overview of how to make branch name changes for local existing repos.
For my foodie friends, a free mini seminar from @sandorkraut on fermentation this Thursday <https://cals.ncsu.edu/applied-ecology/event/vegetable-fermentation-sandor-katz/>
Following up on some bookmarks and can’t wait to make this Butternut Squash BBQ from @virginiawillis <https://virginiawillis.com/plant-forward-bbq-sweet-heat-pulled-butternut-squash/>
That feeling when you think you could get some web work done finally & the Internet goes out.
Between the imposter syndrome setting back in after my layoff & this pandemic, my throat swells the moment I open my text editor. Is there a pill for that?
I’ve come to the conclusion that there isn’t an app that allows me to drag an item from a todo list into a calendar. Prove me wrong.
Tomorrow is the big day. Get my covid test I wanted 2 weeks ago. Still doubtful I’ll know results before August 1 based on what I’m reading.
Apple should require apps that have premium subscriptions to post the cost in the description. I shouldn’t have to download it to find out.
Serious question: if I wanted to tune the world out for a few days and only get push notifications if something truly significant happens—natural disaster, war, aliens…what source would you suggest?
I saved this quote from Dr. Fauci becuase I didn’t want it to get lost in the noise. I think this approach should go beyond “science” and be our approach to all policy.
“That’s really the nature of science,” Fauci said Thursday in a live-stream conversation with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. “You look at the data and the information you have at any given time, and you make a decision with regard to policy based on that information. As the information changes, then you have to be flexible enough and humble enough to be able to change how you think about things.”
Whole lot chemistry went into that beyond beef meatloaf & instant mashed potatoes I made tonight. I could read 5000 words on the breakthrough from what I remember & now.
This old MacBook Air might be getting it’s last update save for a security fix here and there.
One of those days where all I can think is, I sure as shit didn’t sign up for this.
Trying this again. 🚭
Waiting for the pressure to naturally release on a pressure cooker is a special kind of patience.
Got a deal on a refurbed paper white. First Kindle. Hit me with your tips.
What will take longer—figuring out a regex to convert Sass variables to custom properties or a manual search & replace?
What’s the word for the moment after you wake up but before you remember there’s a raging pandemic?
Start to think the birds are ploughing through the feed & how it feels like I just ordered it. But then I remember the solace they bring me and I just wish I could give everyone a feeder.
Sat in on micro-irrigation & rain water collecting classes through my county yesterday & this morning. Am reminded on top of everything else, the Tampa Bay region will run out of water in 5 years if we don’t start acting now.
No, you are considering dumping Gulp for Webpack at midnight when you really should just be building.
This looks interesting: “Free and open fair-code licensed node based Workflow Automation Tool.” Think self-hosted Zapier <https://github.com/n8n-io/n8n>
Is there a way to filter GitHub notifications to filter out “Bump package X” ?
Got a cheap smart scale & it’s telling me that my body fat % is too high. I don’t know how living on peanut butter & yogurt the last 4 months it could get that way.
Yesterday my health app told me I stood 14 hours, took 32K steps or 15 miles. I caught one fish. Best part was taking 24 hours away from doom scroll device. I highly recommend it. (Fishing & 15 miles optional)
Was spell check the first linter?
