@Shamar @hankg Nah, not enough buzzwords. The infographic is worth existing just for the virtue of Humility. Arguably, Humility is what makes the other four possible.

Looking for recommendations for a web site / gallery that I can set up for a family member -- ideally on cheap shared hosting, something minimalistic but user friendly.

Obviously is an option. It will be low-traffic but WP just seems heavyweight for this use case. I'm not too familiar with what else is out there.

Please boost :)

I know I'm in a bit of a bubble but since the whole thing that got me into #ruby development was to contribute to #diaspora I was shocked when no one I talked to at #rubyconf has heard of #mastodon and the one person that heard of #diaspora thought it died a long time ago. I knew we had work to do on getting the #fediverse profile bumped up but still shocked at the lack of awareness of it here. Going to put my thinking cap on on this topic...

There’s not nearly enough RubyConf activity on this here Mastodon. I might have to reserve a Lightning talk spot just to say “hey, get on Ruby.social!”

In the Biltmore Bowl! I can’t wait to see Matz in the flesh! I know that makes me a nerd but I have no shame.

@writepaperforme I'm fairly sure academic ghostwriting is illegal in many American states

@judofyr I only intend to write in it when I need to extend apps that use it; I much prefer Ruby over it. I agree, it just feels kind of... sluggish to work in.

@judofyr And nil, but you’re right, that seems to be most of it. I thought the ‘..’ operator was a range too but it’s actually the string concatenation operator.

I have a few apps with Lua scripting support, and Lua looks an awful lot like Ruby at a glance. Is there a shared history there?

@MikeG1 All three of those are my worst nightmare. Being unable to reliably use my mind or manipulate my digits is downright terrifying.

@mike_ It’s phenomenal how many times I’ve walked away from stubborn code only to realize what the simple solution is when I come back to it the next day.

@pedrogaspar I haven't gotten into electronic journaling (yet), but right now I write in my Midori MD notebook with a variety of fountain pens. If you're ever looking for a decent graph-lined notebook, that's a great one.

I usually end up writing somewhere at the end of the day. I lead with what's on my mind, and then talk about how the day went, and lastly I'll usually sprinkle in some thoughts about goals or whatever I want to do in the next day or two.
