So far this new job has been the era of "learn elastic stack".

You really don’t appreciate good editing until you watch the original Star Wars with all the Jabba sex scenes left in

How ERB uses `Binding` objects:

class DiyErb
def initialize(template)
@template = template

def result(binding)
@template.gsub(/<%=(.+?)%>/) do

yes, iwould say im a Gamer. ive played almost 3 games of monopoly

The existence of a minotaur suggests that there is an even larger maxotaur.

Saw a tumblr post warning people that twitter might do the same thing as tumblr to artists, which yes, they very well might. The fediverse should prepare to accept new users, more art-themed servers might be good.

@mperham Hey Mike, I'd love to follow you on Mastodon because we work on similar things and have similar goals, but I noticed you've blocked me on twitter. I might have done something assholish or maybe you used Randi Harper's block list, either way I apologize and I was wondering if I could follow you here? I won't bother you again if the answer is no.

RT The classroom I'm volunteering in still has technology textbooks from the 1980s in it. Is this not the most glorious stock photo of all time?


I got my proxy to manage its own cookies so I could log on to mastodon in IE 5.5 in windows 95... and got to a blank webpage because... oh right... it's entirely JavaScript™

However, I do also believe that if your code / work depends on assets and work that states that part of its agreement of use is to open / highlight its said usage in your work then you must do so.

I do believe that if you produce content that costs you money to produce that you should be entitled to sell it. Like video production work or even code.

@krainboltgreene There have been two patterns I've seen where MVs can be hugely advantageous. One is when you need data from disparate systems each with separate database instances and you need to be able to quickly and easily run queries with arbitrary combination of search predicates involving attributes that come from different databases. Localizing all of those attributes into a single MV avoids the problem of network latency and chatter.

What are the negative side effects of having a whole bunch of materialized views in postgres?

If I'm getting views of data from the origin database via couchdb replication to pouchdb, and therefor don't need to fetch data via http endpoints, what's the best way to communicate mutations to a server?

odata is fucking weird. The website is weird the syntax is weird and the specification is weird.
