Kids, toilet training, milestones 

@brad It’s like signing a 3 yr contract.

Kids, toilet training, milestones 

We are change table free!

Our youngest is in undies during the day now so we’ve been able to recover half of our bathroom. Pretty happy!

I’m giving tailwind a serious go and it’s so liberating not having to come up with names.

Hey folks, the volunteer org I am a part of is doing a survey on perceptions of migraine. Would love to get as many responses as possible (you don't need to have migraine to do it). surveymonkey.com/r/7TRVXHW

Rails, CSRF protection 

I thought I found a neat way to link to POST and PATCH requests from emails.

1. Links go to /magic?method=POST&action=/path/to/action
2. /magic loads HTML page with form which is submitted via JS

This would let me contain all the messiness to one page, re-use my existing actions, and get CSRF protections.

It’s been working well, but there’s a handful of people who seem to consistently get an CSRF authenticity exceptions.

I’m stumped. Token is there. Is session reset?

@fahrni That’s the worst. I’m sorry you got that email.

I’ve learnt when you make something opinionated some people will disagree with your opinion. It doesn’t mean I’m wrong, or they’re right. It’s not exclusive. Don’t worry about the people that disagree, because there will be just as many people who agree and are super happy with it.

None the less, writing in that way is awful.

I’ve been feeling pretty smug running my hobby rails app on a US$5/m VPS, but now it’s looking like I’ll need to go to the next plan. It’s a hobby so I’m motivated to be as cheap as I can.

Listening to music 

Playing my entire music library on random and Korn is playing. Hello teenage years.

Scheduling, big time zone differences 

Lining up work meetings between Brisbane (UTC+10) and London (UTC+0) is the worst.

Annoying thought about programming 

@CodingItWrong Pretty much! Except in this case I get to decide both 😱

Annoying thought about programming 

Ugh, I hate it when your domain word is the same as a reserved word.

@bernardeli Couldn’t find a good, minimal clip to attach the phone to my display.

@d Yes, and open source! I’ve seen quite a few iOS apps that are open source, but still charged on the App Store.

Wow, this is a really polished Mastodon client for iOS. It feels very iOS-like, but true to Mastodon too. Surprised it’s free. metabolist.org/

1.0.0 is live in the App Store!

Metatext is a free, open source Mastodon client for iOS. It remembers your home timeline position, has a searchable emoji picker, and many more great features.

I’m grateful for @davidherse making a Zap that randomly assigns 4 co-workers in Basecamp for a “water cooler” chat once a week. The bot gives us a window of time and we just use the comments to find the last mile. I prefer this flexibility over rigid calendars.

NDIS 

Minister says fear of changes to NDIS planning is because of misinformation, but then refuses to interview to give information? abc.net.au/news/2021-03-18/ndi
