Kind notes

Very excited for this Thursday's PHPMiNDS about How to make digital technology more sustainable from @hanopcon

With the ongoing decline of the climate emergency, as well as the increased usage of cryptocurrencies, there's definitely something to think about in terms of how we improve our impact on this dying world

More details can be found on their website or via Meetup

 Note

One thing I really like about #GoogleMeet is that there's the little waiting room so you don't need to join early and sit on your own / know if you're running massively late cause everyone's already there

 Note

I've shared quite a bit in the past with how great #Gousto has been for our cooking and eating habits, especially over the pandemic, so if you're interested in giving it a go JAMIE21201650 has an especially good deal for 60% off your first box, plus 30% off for a whole month (and we get a little money for the referral) https://cook.gousto.co.uk/raf?promo_code=JAMIE21201650&utm_source=androidapp

 Note

Something I've just spotted that's very cool in default #Neovim is that if you join two lines (J) in the middle of a Markdown list, the - is removed. Such a small but meaningful UX improvement!

 Note

What are folks' thoughts about using a password manager i.e. KeepassXC to store TOTP data (not the recovery codes) for MFA? My initial thought is that this sounds like a Bad Idea, but not sure if I'm being a bit too paranoid?

 Note

Well it's another #ApiDays which means I'm spending ages trying to work out which talk to attend! Very happy it's an online conference so I have a chance to move between stages more easily

 Note

Hey @ApiDaysGlobal any idea when you'll make your website accessible? The agenda being a big image with no alt text is really unhelpful for folks, and having to log into the event site to check what's going on is a lot slower than using the website, but appears to be my only choice

 Note

Another thing you can now do with #Wiremock 2.32.0 is run your stubs from the classpath, instead of needing to store them outside of a standalone JAR - it's been on my list to document how to do it for 6 months, and I'm glad it's now supported https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/12/02/gradle-wiremock-standalone-stubs/

 Note

Very excited that we've now got support in #Wiremock 2.32.0 to run without the underlying HTTP Server (http://wiremock.org/docs/running-without-http-server/) so you now don't need to use my workaround in https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/04/29/wiremock-serverless/ πŸ€“

 Note

A few surprises in this year's #SpotifyWrapped (https://open.spotify.com/wrapped-2021/share-bd296b9dba6c4dcfbb3206f7d9ffa4a2-1080x1920?si=BlK7K4mqQj2G4uaA6J3NnA) with @Phaeleh snatching the top spot from a decade of @UppermostMusic and 59501 minutes of music!

 Note

If y'all aren't already following Brandur Leach's thoughts on their site, please go ahead and do it. I've spent the morning going through quite a few really well written and informative posts, and have remembered there's a good back catalogue for the Nanoglyph newsletter too which is excellent. Some really great learnings from years of building awesome stuff, thanks for it all!

 Note

Moving over to #Neovim was such a good idea - not only are the Async, LSP and general UI improvements making it a nicer experience, but I'd completely forgotten about being able to embed Neovim into other UIs, so this is being written from Neovim embedded into Firefox using the very awesome firenvim project

 Note

Don't know about everyone else, but I find it really difficult to find out / remember what versions of libraries are installed on the AWS Lambda runtime - luckily I've blogged about it so you don't have to remember! https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/11/17/aws-lambda-java-runtime/ (although JDK11 still needs a bit of help)

 Note

Do I know anyone who's got an XPS13 9310/9305? I'm looking to upgrade my 9343 to a 9305 and wondered what Linux support was like πŸ‘€

 Note

First trip to the office today, excited to meet my new colleagues and see the White Chapel Building where we're based!

 Note

For anyone interested in trying out #Gousto (i.e. via https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/07/07/four-months-gousto/ which still holds true) there's a better referral deal on for the next couple of weeks with JAMIE21201650 - get 60% off your first box, and 30% off the rest of the month

 Note

Self care is your first back massage in 18 months followed by a free McDonald's chocolate milkshake πŸ˜‹

 Note

It's Lighting Talks at #TechNott tonight, which is always a super fun evening - I'll be talking about #salary and some of the Korma-level spice that's come out of my post about it last month https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/09/09/public-salary-history/

 Note

Today is the #Wiremock project's 10th birthday! That's a wonderful milestone to hit - thanks for all the work you've been doing over the years Tom Akehurst - it's made a huge difference for the way I've built software over the years!

 Note

First day back at #CapitalOne's offices in Nottingham after a whopping 545 days is a very weird feeling. Got some freebies, a free breakfast, and our first hybrid standup. Been nice to just wave to people, and I'm looking forward to making the most of the day!

 Note

Is the Meetup.com GraphQL API down? I'm seeing HTTP 502s with x-amzn-errortype: InternalServerErrorException. Was hoping to start a migration from REST to the GraphQL API but I guess not!

 Note

Has anyone written any (preferably permissive licensed) Java code that parsed Gherkin using the official java-gherkin library and gets an AST together that includes both steps and comments all in one place?

 Note

How is it 2021 and #Slack's Android app doesn't open links to Slack? So frustrating not being able to follow a link from someone!

 Note

Do I know anyone on the #Jenkins team who'd be able to give a hand with getting https://github.com/jenkinsci/job-dsl-plugin/pull/1232 merged? Core maintainers are currently taking a break, but this would fix a common issue folks have
