On mumble I'm listening in as alynpost and @355E3B work on the ansible playbook for Lobsters. Working remotely, I forgot how nice it is to overheard fellow professionals puzzling through some work.
Weird way to start the day. A guy I banned from Lobsters two years ago for calling for race war (against Kansas, it was not the most coherent racism) shot two cops: https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/2019/11/20/man-named-simba-lion-suspected-in-shootout-with-2-monroe-officers-police-say/
Hi, Dallas - I'm around for a couple days, if anyone would like to grab a bite. Maybe #codeandcoffee tomorrow morning at Ascension Coffee in the Design District?
@technomancy Because raytracing was radical in 1995.
The exception came from deep in the common page-fetching code. In set_cookie:
if val.to_s == ""
@cookies[host][name] ? @cookies[host][name].delete : nil
@cookies[host][name] = val
Sites delete cookies by "setting" them to empty string, so the logic's right, but there's an obvious confusion in how to delete from a Ruby hash, should be .delete(:name). This indeed never worked.
@badtuple Looks like it accidentally came over in the big merge, yeah. Thanks for pointing it out.
Over on Barnacles, the site for bootstrappers: I closed signups, opened the invite queue, and caught up on 2.5y of code from Lobsters: https://barnacl.es/s/rvjtqz/signups_closed_invite_request_open
Nice analysis, to evaluate risk of dying during various sports/hobbies by active hours: https://chessintheair.com/the-risk-of-dying-doing-what-we-love/
just venting a bit - learned about the neat way it supports defining a controller in test (thanks emrox) and bumped into a limitation: https://github.com/lobsters/lobsters/commit/6c804eeea641d11fbbd9992435cbaee2197d9c32#diff-f803dcdbbef9948899992eb475f5af1eR17
