@amirrajan but my friend code is SW-0741-4995-9202 if you want to play.

@amirrajan I'm gonna be honest with you, I had no clue GSP was a thing. I just play with friends and have smash parties. I'm probably not very good, but I'd love to get better!

@amirrajan yeah man! What's your friend code? I just bought it Sunday.

@tgourley depending on the type of mold, enough to last the rest of your life.

RubyGems 3 released! blog.rubygems.org/2018/12/19/3

looks like Ruby 2.6 on Christmas is landing with RubyGems 3 and Bundler 2

Exciting!

sometimes I won’t click on something mildly interesting because I’m afraid a recommendation engine will give me a thousand of it

@veer66 I'm not sure that's true. It's just finally gotten out of the trendy phase. Rails and Ruby are the good ol' workhorses of the web that are mature and do what you expect. I'm fine with all the bandwagon folks moving. I ❤️ Ruby.

@MikeG1 which is all fine and dandy as any suit won't stand up in court. It's MIT licensed which basically says "lol use this shit at your own risk"

I would like to put forth an alternative to the word `blocker` during a standup. Sometimes you just run into a hard thing, but it's not blocking. Just takes time. The electrical term is called impedance, and I think it maps well to use in standups for describing a nonblocking hard problem.

This is the most terrifying shit.

When I personally have to deal with interplanetary time, I'm fucking done with my career.

@BadMinotaur @jeromedalbert yeah we got a lot of signups but not many seem to toot. Which is disappointing because I don't want to have to use Twitter to keep up with the Ruby community. I've got ad free chronological timelines here

@ericflo the Motorola Razr was the best phone to ever exist

I haven't thought of anything tech related as magical in a long time, but I just bought a pair of AirPods. These things are actually magical.
