What is the easiest way to fix a failing spec for a given seed that passes for other seeds?
Insert a `rand` somewhere before the spec!

@halfbyte When I switched back to FF a couple of years back, I've started missing Chrome's "open search" feature, when you actually use site's search, and time-ordered history.

And I thought, I can do it!
<one day later> I can't even figure out how to check all the sources out, not to say how to build it 😱

You can build Chrome locally at least.

@josh Also, monkey-patching will be removed in RSpec 4, so this becomes `RSpec.describe`. But only for the top-level `describe`.

@josh RSpec guys recommend quoting constants in top-level `describe` to avoid autoloading of constants referred in specs that are filtered out (e.g. when you run only specs with `type: :model` you don't need controllers code to be loaded).

.where(badges: badge)
.create_with(achieved_on: Time.current)
syntax is ridiculous. Including the mandatory `{}`. And it's the only way to create or find a record if it exists with `[:user_id, :badge_id]` unique index on the `user_badges`. The original `find_or_create` that suffers from race conditions is way easier to use.

@james Is RVM still accepted? :D
I wish it had precompiled builds for my OS. Can't remember a single time it failed me. With an env trick to point to older OpenSSL, it's still possible to install Ruby 1.8.7

@halfbyte I was astonished how good some old games are: Earthbound, Kirby, Drilldozer, not to say Zelda:A link to the Past. I have never had a GameBoy, and it's a revelation for me.

Before Apple Arcade, there was nothing to replace a retro console. And still, it's better.

Wish PICO8 will turn into hardware.

Also Playdate is promising.

Cryptocurrency mining does produce a value, trust, in the same way as gold mining provides trust (well, provided in the past since $ is not bound to gold now) towards fiat currencies.
We don't need as much gold as we mine, do we?
Gold mining is also quite expensive, and is getting more and more expensive over the years.

Boolshit - an incorrect application of the boolean logic.
