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.
If you were looking to create an online classroom for elementary, you want ability for teachers to break into small groups & be able to monitor & interact with each group.
The Art of the Nap in the Time of a Pandemic
Some tweets are better left in @draftsapp
Everyone making jokes about 1700 engineers (it’s funny) but 5 folks are probably banging something out to shut the world up & will have it ready Tuesday. Some if…then statements & a map to all the participating testing locations based on your location if you share it or search.
Artists are starting to add their merch and music to https://missedtour.org I encourage everyone to start clicking around, listening to some music and purchase directly from the artist. Ignore the market, the real economy is down here on the street.
While we are in the jump in & get shit done spirit, it’s probably a good time to remind that scientists attribute 150K deaths a year to climate change & could double by 2030. Still wash your hands.
Ever seen the BBC series Surviors? Not recommended watching under the current situation.
Anyone have a civic tech open source project they could use a hand on? Need a palette cleaner.
In hindsight, when their own site crashed & didn’t even know what server it was on to fix it, I should have known then what the outcome would be.
My only advice to someone who has never done video conferencing is to learn how to easily mute & unmute yourself. Everyone will appreciate it far more than if you have a nice view behind you.
It’s always interesting to experience someone’s reaction to encountering for the first time someone who has zero fucks to give.
Always appreciate when someone shows their hand early.
Pushing the limit of how many times I can have the same page on @css open in multiple tabs.
Today: keyframe syntax
Usually: grid &/or flex syntax
