This one went well: closed out that chart, wrote some tests, and worked through half of the backlogged PRs and some issues without once running into ruby version hassles. And I guess Twitch referred some people because I got an unusual number of questions about Roblox.
On tonight's stream in an hour, I'm going to show where last week's charting ended up and then dig in on the thing I find harder in software dev than coding: writing. https://twitch.tv/pushcx
Well, that went nicer since with all the Ruby versioning woes squared away. Dropped in a library for making svg graphs and hacked it into giving a useful context to the concept of being heavily flagged. It'll get a few tweaks and go live probably this week. Thanks for joining.
As is becoming usual for Monday evenings, I'm going to stream some rails dev in an hour. Unsually, I have a plan: a new feature for problem users. https://twitch.tv/pushcx
The authors are weirdly convinced that littering useless unmaintainable hacks is valuable. And I guess UChicago doesn't consider software maintainers human - in any other situation they probably would've said "huh it's maybe bad to secretly test things on strangers".
In Super Mario Advance 2, if Mario has 999 lives and exits a level as Yoshi is swallowing a 1-Up Mushroom on the first frame the "1-Up" text appears (left), upon returning to the map screen, Mario will have "Y00" lives (right). This resets back to 999 when entering a level. https://t.co/mFBRLkRFM9
Maybe Thursday, 7 PM Central (GMT-5)? I'll try to get chat wired up for then.
Welp, that was a process of repeatedly driving into a ditch of my own digging, but along the way showed off some infrastructure, broke prod, solved the race condition puzzle from last stream, finished a perf refactor tho unable to run or test it, and told a story about a dentist.
I'll be streaming Rails dev on Lobsters again in about 20m: https://twitch.tv/pushcx
And then occasionally the GNU/Attitude leaps from "harmless superiority complex" way up to "so let's define heresy and discuss how the wages of sin is death", which is less charming.
Setting browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to false fixes it. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1627858 plans to remove this setting in favor of a user-visible preference that may do about the same thing? I sure hope so.
