physical tool organizing is next level yak shaving.
I feel very lucky to have lived, no matter how far off on the periphery, in Daniel Johnston’s world. Rest easy.
If you were going to build something that required really fast faceted search TODAY, what would you use? Elasticsearch?
Just issued a challenge to myself. It’s on like donkey kong as the saying goes.
I reached the point that I forgot I had used
git stash and thought I’d lost my mind. I need something that the command line prompt that shows number of stashes or something.
2 things I learned in kitchens that I think applies to the dev world. Will always be someone who knows more & someone who is faster. Rarely the same person. There’s usually a reason something is done a certain way even if everyone knows it’s not the optimal solution.
I’m just imagining someone saying, “nah, leave it.”
Million things on my mind but seeing Beastie Boys pass through my timeline and all I can think of is one of my mentors yelling “NEEDS MORE SALT” over the boom box blasting Paul’s Boutique. New Orleans guy meets Tampa kid in Denver. Hilarity ensues.
when using dnsmasq with Homebrew, remember to check
/private/etc for stray resolver config files. #notetoself
after years of blindly only using Sheilashine to clean/polish stainless in professional kitchens, TIL a little mineral oil on a clean soft rag works just as well. And no I’m sure they took time off my life fumes.
Sometimes you need to speed up the process
all i can pictue is video screens. hooked up to a raspberry pi.
hey hey @jekyllrb 4 🎉 https://github.com/jekyll/jekyll/releases/tag/v4.0.0
@Omnifocus any timeline on when there’s going to be an iOS 13 beta? I’m getting a replicable crash (report submitted).
hey font nerds–are licenses clear ablut how they can be used commercially, say on a t-shirt?
Thinking through some ideas on how to pivot to something I can make money doing and two central themes have emerged:
- Efficient consistency over gimmicks
- Be honest with the customer
no you are thinking about writing recipes as psuedo code.
Reading up on the Army Signal Corp during WWII trying to learn more about my grandfather’s service and can’t stop thinking about Misson of Burma (he served in North Pacific theatre)
one thing Ill never understand about web workers–they want to treat their personal blog like a professional site but will share intimate feelings on Twitter.
Just to clarify my thoughts from yesterday, I’m not quitting the Internet, I’m simply moving on from pursuing it as a career or volunteering my time to build things for it. I’ll still use it for the next chapter.
what a difference a decade makes
July was brutal to me on many fronts, but probably none more so than to come to the realization I’m really not good at building things for the web. Consider this the start of a draft for a long goodbye and return to analog/physical production. Y’all are amazing.
shout out to all my Gen X lefties that were forced to sit in desks designed for righties. And don’t get me started on scissors.
MySpace with web standards and a personalized domain name that you can export anytime as html. Using webmentions & some form of oAuth. That’s what is going to win.
not sure this campaign organizer understood when I said you should have BCC everyone on that list.
Still didn’t see anything in the @GitHub actions announcement today about organizations. (I’m also kinda wondering if Pro is required. What exactly am I still paying for?)
I seem to be in the minorty but I’ve come to the conclusion to build a successful website, the tool/CMS used to put it together should be the last step.
Former Bush advisor Michael Gerson op-ed recommended by Elijah Cummings in his remarks today.
“…the evil of white supremacy… is the worst stain, the greatest crime, of U.S. history”
Thinking about you Mike O’Neill.
