Rails 7.0.1 is out, which gets it running on Ruby 3.1.0; finally all upgraded to the latest 馃憤

Ruby 3.1 now available on CircleCI, but there is a bug in Rails that prevents it from starting github.com/rails/rails/issues/

Ruby 3.1 update: now available via ruby-build via homebrew, and on Heroku. Not yet available on CircleCI.

Of course, we need to wait for the ruby-build, Heroku, CircleCI etc teams to work on Christmas to update =]

Just did some year-end giving to:

- #Mozilla, because without them we wouldn't have an independent browser
- #Babel, because without them we wouldn't be able to use the latest JavaScript
- #Ruby, because without it we wouldn't have a mainstream fully object-oriented dynamic language

(Please feel free to nitpick these assessments, but please also do year-end giving to orgs you support)

I just ran across someone working at large Ruby client who came from another language, who had not been pointed to

Folks, be encouraged: it is OK to keep bringing it up! We are not yet at the goal where literally everyone writing Ruby has heard of POODR.

Never thought it'd happen, but I'm officially a RubyMiner. On a client with a 10 year old codebase, it's amazing how useful even imperfect IDE support is =]

I wondered if animated QR codes for data transfer were a thing, and it seems someone tried it. Topped out at 9KBps whereas simple IrDA can achieve up to 4Mbps, but still cool divan.dev/posts/animatedqr/

Interesting conundrum: We've recently moved a project to LetsEncrypt and now between 1-2% of our users can't use our product anymore. (Because of the missing root cert on their ancient OS)

On one hand I can totally understand why people are using old hard- and software, with Money being the main reason - On the other hand, yo, you're using an unmaintained, inherently insecure operating system to use the interwebs. STAHP, forcrissakes, STAHP.

"Why would you *not* use [insert statically-typed language here]?"

If you don't know how to answer this question or are tired of answering it, here are five reasons you might use a dynamically-typed language: codingitwrong.com/2021/11/23/w
