Bad idea: Hiking in this hot weather.
Another bad idea(?): Making the trip twice as long in an attempt to stay inside the shadows.

Should have brought some water at least. :blobsweats:

Random fact: Kiritani Riria[1] and Aoi Miyabi[2] are tied at first place in having a shitton of traits.


Am I unemployed or self-employed? I ought to make up my mind. :blobunsure:

Oh boy, I've triggered some weird corner case in the Dutch housing bureaucracy. 😩

Today's annoyance: Sites that use Javascript to "focus()" an input element on page load, instead of using the HTML5 autofocus attribute. Mastodon and Gitea do this.

The attribute can be disabled globally (Firefox has a "browser.autofocus" setting for this), but I've yet to figure out how to disable the behavior for JS-based implementations.

I always used multiple Firefox profiles to access certain (shitty) sites with a different set of cookies. I'm giving the Multi-Account Containers extension a try now. Works pretty well, and it's certainly much easier. :blobsurprised:

A surprising number of bugs in my 5 code are related to perl considering "0" as false in boolean context. A tad bit more strictness in this area would have helped me a great deal.

Gotta prepare a 20 minute introduction to present VNDB, but I've no clue what aspects the audience is interested in. Maybe I'll just prepare an hour worth of slides and decide then and there what to cover....

The impact of reading SciFi on error messages. :blobcat:

Note to self: If you play around and test things in the production environment, don't expect the changes to be visible in the development environment.

I'm totally going to do a DROP TABLE on the production database one day... :blobblush:

Excellent discussion on OSS software development, distribution, stability and security. Some highlights:
- Security vulnerabilities aren't always assigned CVEs.
- Security fixes don't always make it into stable Linux distros.
- Developers need to pay more attention to backwards compatibility.
- There's never enough developers for the amount of work to be done.

How I deal with the heat. Or rather, how my PC does.

Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

I love it when I play a 1 hour techno remix while traveling and it ends 10 seconds before I reach the front door of my appartment. That DJ had excellent timing!

I get anxious when I don't code for a few days and quickly feel better when I'm coding again. Is that some sort of withdrawal? Am I addicted? :blobthinking:

users: "Please implement this huge list of features."

Also users: "Wait, you're going to change that little thing over there? This is the end of the world everything is going to be broken!"

I'm loving the tool as well. I now have a whole bunch of dates in a .reminders file and run `rem -t5` from my .bashrc to display reminders 5 days in advance in every terminal I open. I'll never forget anything (not that I was very forgetful in the first place, but this gives some peace of mind).

I'm loving the "Microsoft Policy" and "Apply Policy" sections on the Remind homepage:

That's a developer who cares.

Observations from selling physical goods on an online marketplace:

If you try to sell a €100 product for €10, people try to haggle it down to €5.

If you give a €10 product away for free, people travel from the opposite side of the country to get it, as if there's no cost in traveling.

I never understand why there's often such a hype around new movies, series, games, books, etc. There's a good chance you'll find something much better among what's already been produced in the past 50 years, with the added benefit that you can rely on good reviews from people who have already experienced it.
