Y'all have seen that security notice for the rack gem, right?

PRs from Depfu should all more or less be in, nice pipeline clogger, that one.

On how people forget how miserable school was 

“Do Adults Really Not Remember School Sucked? - Ian Welsh” ianwelsh.net/do-adults-really-

I will never get this. School was a miserable experience for me. I did really well but hated every moment. Pretty much everybody I went to school with hated it as well. Even disregarding the horrible teachers I had*, the overall school experience still sucked

*: I had at least five teachers who were genuinely evil people and seemed to thrive on the misery of children.

Most other software projects: We improve components all the time to keep them stable, fast and easy to upgrade.

React: We love throwing away stuff every few months! Forget what you learned last year. Now we have something else!

The things I've seen in client's Gemfiles. Latest highlight: A gemfile that does JSON.parse(open()) to a remote URL to read dependency versions to include in the Gemfile.

I mean, where should I start.

I don't think it can have been more than about a year since I discovered Firefox's "Reader" mode, and in that relatively short time I have gotten to the point that, when I'm on my phone at least, I instinctively check for whether the icon is available on every single site and hit it the moment I see it, even if the page in question hasn't yet loaded/rendered to the point where I can even assess it's readability. I just do it, because I have literally never once seen a single case where switching to Reader mode made the site *less* usable on a mobile. Not even once. I guess this shouldn't surprise me - nobody would have gone through the trouble of writing the feature if it didn't work well. But what does it say that we have gotten to the point where its of real practical value to automate the process of routinely throwing away the entire product of the web design industry?

Try our app, it's exactly like our website down to the pixel except for how it accesses your contacts, location, microphone, pictures and camera and it's not always nagging you to try our app.

I'm a big fan of Firefox Focus

The colors and the UI are classy and vibrant. Go download it now if you haven't tried it!

Out of my admiration for the gradient and layout, here's Firefox Focus in responsive HTML/CSS

Screw chaos monkey randomly shutting down production machines to test resiliency

People should be given random vacation days to see what knowledge isn't distributed

For the last time, BDD friends

Do not write tests for private methods

Test the behaviour they support

This has been a public announcement to protect my sanity

Me: What should I be doing instead of files?

Computer: Glad you asked! It's 2020. You should be spinning up a Kubernetes of Dockers on your public cloud each of which is a Github which send JSON messages over HTTP3 to the microservice host on your Virtualbox private cloud which is running a whole bunch more Dockers each of which is a Node.js which is pulling dependencies from

Me: files seemed a bit simpler than that

Computer: WELL WE HAD A VOTE AND YOU WEREN'T THERE AND WE SAID FILES SUCK.

Since I developed a migraine, I started to realize that dark mode is not only about personal preference, but also about accessibility.

Websites with white backgrounds will guarantee me a head ache right now.
