"Yeah, so I found out my new house is haunted."
"You know who you should call? Ghostbusters!"
"Oh? Do they have an email address?"
"Just call them!"
"Ah. Can I text them?"
"No, just call them."
"Um. Never said I minded the ghost. It's not that bad."

Feels like a pretty productive week, despite the fact I hardly touched anything on my todo list 🤫

I'm so on top of my GitHub notifications, thanks to Octobox, that I'm going to attempt to subscribe to rails/rails and see if I can keep up.

Wish me luck!

When your side project becomes your main project, it means you get to start a new side project! 😜

The features I've been beta testing on octobox.io have made it feel very slick, can't wait to ship them to everyone.

After 8 months in limbo, there's a new episode of The Manifest podcast out: manifest.fm/10

Quietly shipped a big new feature to Octobox.io, time for some production testing 🤫

First day in my new private office. A nice, quiet space to focus in.

Is there a way to stop random people from opening pull requests from your unfinished branches on open source GitHub repos?

It’s happened a couple times where I’ve pushed a branch and some drive-by user opens a pr from that branch to master, very annoying.

PSA: Check your Rails app for `config.i18n.fallbacks = true`. If you're using I18n 1.1.0, this should be `config.i18n.fallbacks = [I18n.default_locale]`. If not, fallbacks will be broken in your app by I18n 1.1.0.

After 5 years working from home, I’m moving into my own personal office on Friday.

Still remote, just felt like I needed a bit of separation between home and work.

I would like to marry this post. 👰

Getting close to launching a new thing and finally being able to take about the last shit-show 🤫

New people of Mastodon:

Welcome! I'm happy you are here! Here are some tips for accessibility

You can add a description to an image you post by clicking on the image before you hit TOOT! Type in a brief description. It helps people who use screen readers to know what the image is.

When using a hashtag:

Not good: #hereismyhashtag

Good: #HereIsMyHashtag

Screen readers garble the first one, but can read the second one because of the capitalization.

Wow, I like Mastodon's light theme so much better than the default. (Click the gear icon, bottom of the Preferences page!)
