I have no idea what the original source is, but right now I can't be bothered to find out.

Two things I learned today about HTML lists:

list-style-type css property can take a string as it’s value, which will just use that instead of a specific bullet type
The li::marker pseudo-selector can be used to style the bullet, with the usual things like color, font, etc.

I don’t know who needs to see this, but if you’d like to see pictures of anime girls (safe for work) with programming books, there’s apparently a git repo for that.

Got a job offer today.

It’s 20% more than what I’m making right now, and the company sounds less hectic than what I’m doing now.

I haven’t accepted the offer yet, but I’m pretty excited.

And, during my live coding interview, they told me they were impressed with my “furious” typing. 😆

Hey, by the way, a couple years ago, one of my coworkers was named Ramsey. While a was code reviewing one of his PRs, I noticed he added ramsey/uuid to our composer.json, and I thought he was adding something he wrote, which seemed weird to me.

It wasn’t until a few months later when I saw it in Laravel’s composer.json and thought, “there’s no way that Taylor Otwell let in a package that Ramsey wrote.” So, I had to look you up to realize that you were not the Ramsey I knew.

These things happen.

My first professional dev job, I accidentally introduced a SQL injection vulnerability which could have had enormous impact.

Thankfully, it was caught on a security audit a couple months later, and nobody had exploited it.

I didn’t get fired. I promised I would do better (and I did).

I think you’ve done what you should do. Best thing is just to learn from the mistake and move on.

My name is Dan Jones.

I've been a PHP developer for over a decade.

I also have four cool kids and an amazing wife.

I'd like to get into voice acting, but don't really have the time for a side career right now.

My main account is @danjones000@fedi.absturztau.be

I mainly created this one as a way of interacting with fellow PHP devs.
