... what to do, what to do. So many things I'd like to do, but absolutely don't have the energy to do them myself. If only I could hire a team to do it for me.

Paying people to code on my own hobby projects. Hmm. That seems even sillier when I type it out.

@saramg @ericmann We're sending plenty of robots. However, I for one would very much like to see Lovell City become a real thing.

@ericmann @saramg It's okay! It's not as bad as that! At least not yet:

"THE" moon landing was in 1969, which was 27 years before Independence Day, which is only 25 years old.

However, the final apollo landing was in 1972, and that was 24 years before Independence Day.

One thing's for sure: We need to get back to the moon! World cheese supplies are at historic lows.

"PHP 8 has two release maintainers. Sara is one, who is the other?"

"Is the other maintainer also Sara?"


Reading GitHub comments on one coworker's PR, another coworker compliments his coding style and advocates for that method of avoiding nested if statements. And I'm like "Yeah. Preach it."

And then I lurch forward, remembering that I wrote one earlier today & have suddenly realized a way to refactor it to remove the nesting.

Do I code now, or do I wait until tomorrow?


Mark it down: 9:55am. That's when I hit a coding catch-22 that will frustrate me for the next (checks Apple schedule) two hours.

Installing PHP 8 on Raspbian is a lot easier when you have a decent guide for it. Found this one tonight: lindevs.com/install-php-8-0-on

I finally got my underwater drone back in the water after a long winter hiatus, and I found something neat! youtu.be/KT-g50Rq-2o

@pollita but no, functions aren't given that level of participation in the ecosystem right now.

@pollita if you could `composer install whoever/println`, then have a `use Whoever\println;` in your file that talks to the console, problem solved.

@pollita I like it! Looks super handy for my typical PHP usage. Of course, your point is also 100% correct (if a bit blunt).

But if we could just make functions "first class" (no pun intended), it wouldn't need to exist at the language level.

Went for a walk today & took a photo of an old rusted car wreck. I'd taken a photo of the same wreck 10 years ago, and thought it would be fun to try again. flickr.com/photos/beryllium/51

PHP Notices poll (or notices in any lang)

@saramg I have it on good authority that Kaos is the enemy of Control.

Aha. I think what I need to do in order to understand all the fiddly draggy and droppy bullshit bits of XCode+Swift ... is version the project in git and look at the damned diffs.

Anything less precise seems utterly inscrutable.

The hull is actually much cleaner than the photo suggests; I think a lot of the speckledness is from light reflecting off the water, amplified by computer-driven postprocessing settings.

Not my boat, although it could be for the low, low price of $15,900 CDN.

@saramg ... having enough energy to "do things" is a MYTH. We'll take our black times new roman on white bgcolor, with blue links and purple visited links, and we'll like it.

... well, anyway, I hope your eye is feeling better now.
