Pinned toot

I was late to the flock, so I figured I should be early to the herd😜

Would you enjoy differently-sized headings, blockquotes, code blocks, bullet point lists and other rich text features in toots on your home feed?

(Screenshot follows in next toot)

Pro tip. Testing on the device you actually build for will save hours of debugging😅

Swift 5 is almost here, so naturally, I just finally got my RPi zero running Swift 4.1.3😏

TIL: viewSafeAreaInsetsDidChange🤦‍♂️
At least it fixes this ugly workaround.

On a semi-related note, I love deleting code😊

In you can do a lot with extensions, but it still bugs me that you can't add a variable to track the state of something without subclassing. It seems like the compiler could create a subclass for you, but that seems kinda ugly too.

It's not a wonder so many software projects grow so out-of-control when you have to add another file just to add a variable to an object.🙄

Me: I really should finish up this app update and get it shipped.
Also me: I wonder how long it would take me to write an algorithm that produces every possible image in a 10x10 pixel space using RGB colors.🤓

tfw you know what the problem is, and you know at least 3 ways to fix it, but none of them *feel* right 🧐

If the cord on your soldering iron doesn’t have a piece of tape on it, you are doing something wrong😜

As if we needed any more evidence that Facebook was a truly evil company: https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/29/facebook-project-atlas/

tl;dr: Facebook paid users $20/mo to install (what is essentially) their shitty Onavo VPN and track all their internet traffic.

Other highlights include:

- Paying users an additional $20 per friend they referred
- Requiring users to give them a screenshot of their last 30 days of Amazon orders
- Has users install a root certificate on their phones

Most software is like a giant tire fire trying to put itself out with gasoline😖

tfw: you keep putting in more and more breakpoints because they aren't being hit, and then you realize you forgot to press run😅

Sometimes it feels like I’m just helping the bugs multiply by fixing them😬

I guess I have been out of the loop for a while, but I just can’t believe how fast my new Mac mini is. It runs circles around my old one (2009), and my MacBook Pro (2011), and I haven’t even heard the fan yet. Apps open instantaneously, and Xcode now builds my app faster than it can install it to the phone😍. Can’t wait till I can afford to max out the RAM, and add an external GPU!

Unlike Apple's app review, Google's "...will be conducted by a Google-designated third party assessor, may cost between $15,000 and $75,000 (or more)" Whee.
