I don't normally repost my twitter content here, due to my belief that repost-bots are actually a detriment to platform growth, but I thought I'd manually repost this one:

"Agreement doesn't lead to clicks. No clicks, no profit. Therefore, unless they find a way to break the feedback loop powering their profits, it is the function of a profit-based social network to wilfully - gleefully - tear itself apart."

Started yet another project last night. This time I'm going to practice README-driven development, by mapping out the goals and features of the project in the readme and then implementing them.

I'm sure it'll soon wash up on the Shores of Abandonment like all of my other projects, but what else can you do when your hobby is apparently "thinking of new projects, making a tiny bit of progress, and then forgetting about them"?

I feel like this example of null coalesce gotchas is lacking some pop. I need to find a gnarlier example. Ideas?

Thinking of doing a series of kinda short blog posts about intro-to-PHP-7&8 type stuff. Stuff that might seem "easy". So far I'm planning to cover null coalesce and short functions and the spaceship operator (in that order, for reasons). What else should I touch on?


Any chance someone might be able to proofread a blog post I'm writing about contravariants/covariants?

Launched my blog redesign today - Whateverthing, now with a taste of Tailwind:

Started redesigning my blog in Tailwind. It's coming along alright. A little bit tedious to restore "normal" HTML functionality, but each time I encounter something that's been reset to basics, it gives me a chance to re-evaluate the design of it. So that's good, I guess.

It was excruciating to get a site up and running on Amazon today - an otherwise-simple one-page static site. But I persevered. I'm told that Netlify might be a better avenue in the future. :)

Now I just need to find some infosec folks to take a look at the site I made, to ensure that I'm not accidentally being misleading about the subject matter.

Wrote 2000 words today about the ROV I purchased. Planning to use it as a script for a youtube video review, but man, it needs a lot of polish before I can film it. Drained my creativity supply for the day, yet the resulting "prose" feels like the most utilitarian boring phrasing one could imagine. Oh well. It's good to have a draft to work from!

Ooh, looks like I might have helped pull in a few more mastodon users via ... :)

Currently wrestling with TravisCI to get Sculpin building under OS X (and hopefully, Windows).

The phpmyadmin project's travis YML file has been super helpful as a reference.
