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.

For the morning crew: Last night I did an impromptu stream of Rails dev on the Lobsters codebase. Merged a couple PRs, showed off my almost non-existent vim colorscheme and cursive font, ran random db queries. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/618359336
As an experiment, I'm going to stream some Lobsters coding starting in about 10 minutes. https://twitch.tv/pushcx
Oh, I should mention, we recorded a couple a months ago, so current events don't come up when I evangelize working remotely or explain how I learned to invest from the Great Depression. Credit to Sean for being prescient.
I was on Full Stack Panic, the podcast about having a long programming career. I told the story of the only time I've yelled in the workplace, how Rails was a cheat code, how consulting did not luckily land in my lap, and working part time. https://share.transistor.fm/s/5691dab6
I've listened to the other interviews at https://fullstackpanic.com and uh, I see why Sean jumped at my use of the word "luck".
