@chucker There are several mobile OSes that I would've liked to see succeed as alternative platforms, but they were all just too late to be able to capture any market share 😞

FirefoxOS, BlackBerry 10 OS, WebOS, Windows Phone 10, Tizen... There were some really cool ideas there that have still never quite been brought up again.

@halkeye ooooh, that's an interesting idea.

My initial thought was a script that could run locally and print out diffs, with a --quiet mode for CI to just indicate if there were mismatches

@halkeye It seems easy enough to build a quick version as a bash script, which is partly why I'm so surprised I can't find anything that already does this

Looking for a tool that can run over a bunch of projects/repos and compare tooling files (eslintrc, editorconfig, tsconfig, etc.) against a template repo and flag (but not fix) when they are different. Anyone have suggestions?

Proposal to fill a gap in the HTTP status codes list with "427 Foreboding", for when the request will fill you with creeping dread.

@chucker There's a sort-of unofficial "ConLang Code Registry" trying to fit constructed languages into private use Unicode space, and D'ni is already in there: kreativekorp.com/clcr/

Someone made a version of DniFont that maps those characters correctly too.

My desktop computer locked up while I was doing system updates and I had to reboot and now it has no kernel to load and I need to boot from a LiveCD to fix it, but my laptop doesn't have a disk drive to burn a LiveCD and I have no USB keys so I have to go buy one and hope I can get EFI to boot from it and this is really not how I imagined my weekend starting πŸ™ƒ

Some random personal #SkyTrain stats 

Since 2015-02-15, I've logged 3572 rides on SkyTrain vehicles.

As of today, I've ridden all 150 of the Mark I vehicles, all 260 of the first-gen and 348 of the second-gen Mark II vehicles, and 31/60 of the Mark III vehicles.

My most frequent ride is apparently 213, followed by 233 (which is my favourite first-gen Mark II train because of the LED headlights).

spent the better part of the day theming my phone's home screen...

Debugging iOS Safari on Linux 

@nolan Looks like github.com/google/ios-webkit-d (which I think is the underlying project that RemoteDebug uses) is still sorta maintained (albeit not by Google)

My modem/router died so I have no internet at home. My condo also has notoriously poor cell service, so I'm basically staring at the walls wondering what to do with my life πŸ™ƒ

Achievement unlocked: Investigated a bug in iOS WebKit/WKWebView, found the root cause, made a patch and a test case, and now my commit is merged into WebKit πŸŽ‰

@chucker "Happiness peaks in high school"? Welp, that's not looking good for me then... πŸ™ƒ



β€œWhy I have a problem with React the library and spend a lot of time talking to my therapist”

This feels broadly correct. React has not been a good influence over the web. And that's even before you take into account that it exists to support Facebook's development and recruitment.

Just another day dealing with iOS webview shenanigans...

why is it called teen angst when it never stops

TIL I can reach UBC's VE7RHS repeater on both VHF and UHF from Port Moody, despite not being able to reach much of anything else
