Does anyone else judge the difficulty of a problem by how many tabs you close once you've solved it?

Y'know, like Sherlock Holmes' "Three pipe problem" - "This was a six tab problem" or the like.

TIL Palm Springs names all their streets after movie stars. Apparently Shore Dr is the name of a famous actor, and is nowhere near a body of water.

I do in fact have a production script running on my notebook, so when it hibernates, one production queue backs up and all sort of alerts go off

The past few weeks (okay, ever since the schism) I've felt kind of disenchanted by Mastodon and especially its development environment, and I wrote an essay about why that is. It's long, but if you're interested in Mastodon's history or politics you should give it a read.

Usually, you can achieve similar results more idiomatically via arrow functions: 2ality.com/2016/02/arrow-funct

If you're still using #momentjs, I suggest switching over to #date-fns. It will significantly reduce your bundle size

I find instance growth rate more exciting than the user growth rate--like measuring biodiversity rather than raw population as an indicator of the health of an ecosystem. It means long term resilience.

Once again, I am going to urge people to read though this github issue and voice your opinions.


github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/


Without some form of migration, or account grouping, the federated user experience lacks a capstone.


What do you think?

Writing thank you notes for a job interview. I'm hoping this leads to a job offer, but either way they now know never to depend on my handwriting abilities.
