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.
So I lost a bunch of time to mariadb using a different username than I specified, and I even found the bug for it. It's wontfixed because nobody could be confused by getting logged in as a different user than specified. https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-12073
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
