It's totally irrational, but I feel like I immediately trust UIs with a side nav more than UIs with a topbar nav.

Of course that's just for tooling...if it's for a website then go nuts. Floating bottom right triangle nav you control with the Q, G, and 8 keys ftw.

I think I finished melancholy music. Like all of it. Good.

Building a thing that crunches logs but need to know what formats are most important to support first. If you run a production service what format do you use for logging?

Masto only gives me 4 options so replies with alternatives are super welcome.

chrono's such a good crate. It's nice to have well thought out libraries to depend on.

In a gold rush sell shovels, in the enterprise sell paint for bike sheds.

Hey / fedi, I know there must be hundreds of these but I'm having trouble finding them:

Anyone know a simple log visualizer where if my app logs metrics out in a certain format I can just scp down the log file and see pretty graphs about what's happening? I don't wanna go full APM or run an ingest server or use a SaaS or anything....just want the option to see spikes if I'm looking into something.

I have no idea why this is hard to find. This has to be super common.

Let's skip the next phase of Marvel movies and just have a full-budget remake of The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.

Honestly, maybe this is what beautiful prolog turns into. Not sure what large scale production prolog even looks like.

Are there programming languages that use something like an Ontology Language in place of (or extending) a type system?

It seems like giving a direct way to model a "domain" instead of having people hack it into a type system that cares mostly about mechanics would be a huge win.

Tbf the concept is so general that it doesn't really _mean_ much without an implementation...but maybe someone's done work in that space?

I type so much now that my handwriting has atrophied. I can write legibly or I can write quickly, not both. That's why this notebook paper looks like an ink covered cat had a seizure on the page.

To the horrified spectators watching me pile more things onto a single sandwich: "Don't worry, I know what I'm doing. I lived through the Lunchables era."

September.
It's that time of year again.
Where I rediscover Rails and become acutely aware that we didn't have to make web development painful. That it doesn't require 3+ differing specialities to make a login box and text appear on a page.

My fun project has been sustaining my need for fun for so long that it probably needs to recharge it's fun batteries.

Because of this, I shall find a new temporary fun project. Somehow.
