I recently did so much of my house's outside surfaces and it's so satisfying 😌

I'm definitely the opposite - all about overcomplicating simple things πŸ˜‚

I do similar with my step counts from Google Fit - https://www.jvt.me/kind/steps/ - which is synced nightly. Do you need a native app, or just fancy it?

One thing I'll always remember from FOSDEM a few years back was him doing a live demo, having technical issues and he literally took a fresh laptop out of his bag and started doing the demo on that one. Being so prepared and smooth when going through demos or speaking is a huge one I see in great speakers like Scott!

Nice to see I'm still a very high publisher 🫣

I know my retries were broken for quite some time so that wasn't ideal, but I wonder why GitHub is so high, as I barely publish to it.

Maybe because it allows updates to the syndicated text?

Are you implying that not self hosting infrastructure means it's not owned by me? We've got to be pragmatic and allow some things to be not run by us, especially if you want things to become mainstream

I've had one of these in a box for years. Really need to get round to installing it cause damn that looks amazing

Have you seen indieweb.org/why before? It's what we're trying to do, and is ie how I can own my reply to you, on Twitter, but using my own site as the source of that interaction, using open protocols and standards

More API documentation related, but gov.uk have some great docs on how to document https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-document-apis

I've got a playlist called Pumped (https://open.spotify.com/playlist/664XTaQfwj0vnSHxrI6tXc?si=v7NrS1AtQ3qDD1r_8NXbKg) which works quite well. There are a few artists in here that hopefully you'll like 🀞🏽

When was the last time you used Java? A lots changed and the language is really great now for a lot of things. Not saying convert over, but always worth adding context for when the last time you used it πŸ™ƒ

Some of the things I did in my recent job hunt ( https://www.jvt.me/posts/2022/05/02/lessons-learned-job-hunt/ ) weren't too bad and gave me a chance to shine, but definitely strongly despise ones that don't test a representation of what my actual job would be like

 Reply

I'd simply reached out and gone through the official process. For me it was looking at companies I was interested at working at, for a mix of culture and tech, with a bit more focus on culture

 Reply

Yeah that's fair. I mostly see people screenshotting someone's joke and getting 50k likes while the original is at like 50 πŸ™„

Huge congrats πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ’œπŸ€—

 Reply

Thank you! I definitely wanted to be honest, even if it was just for myself to read back on.

Haha yeah being on the receiving end I was a bit like 🀨

There's a load of cool ones like https://blog.new (more info https://www.blog.google/outreach-initiatives/entrepreneurs/shortcuts-made-possible-new/)

Definitely feel like I would like to have one of these domains but they're super expensive and not sure I need it that much

 Reply

I've done nothing on my side for it, so they must've automagically determined that made sense for the preview!

 Reply

We've got https://www.blinds-2go.co.uk/ which are controlled with a remote you can get a repeater for, so can then attach to a smart switch. They're also made to measure so handy to install πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Definitely read the name as "best selling bigot" πŸ˜‚

One of the reasons I would consider removing the full content is due to size. When I've had extremely long articles in the feed, it's caused some feed readers to break πŸ₯Ή

 Reply

If you've not seen the wonderful https://granary.io/ by Ryan Barrett it's worth a look in the meantime, and provides a hosted tool for converting feeds/people/lists to various formats. Works with silos other than Twitter, too ☺

 Reply

It's also a good way of leading to burnout, and may not actually help in the long run. Definitely can be useful to show off at an interview, but doesn't necessarily always work because the interviews may realise people may have other source code platforms, may not have free time because they're a care giver etc

We definitely think there's some Terrier in her but we've not yet done a DNA test to see if they can work out a bit more of her

Main thing was to do an in-place edit for the file. You could do it with tr and piping in and out, but I preferred using sed for it
