Oh how we all love DNS shenanigans.
Fediverse and the spectre of search
What if I just built an actual Opt-In activitypub post search index, and everyone who wants search can join that and leave the rest of us alone.
?? is fast becoming my favorite operator in PHP.
Thanks for that PHP 7.0
I feel like a wizard, when I can not only read shit like
git commit -am "`curl -Ls whatthecommit.com | grep '<p>' | sed -r 's/<p>(.*)/\1/g'`"
and understand what it does.
I can actually write it and make it "work".
(damn, CLI is a horrible way to control a computer)
Every time I read about database migrations and all the code and infrastructure needed to maintain that, I kinda want to have a conversation about why, and how the underlying problem could be solved differently.
Why not just have a database schema specificiation and then diff the specification with the database, and apply changes whenever there's an update?
me, programming in a swamp:
git commit -am "bogfixes"
hot take about hashtags and UI
Tumblr's way of doing hashtags - where they put all of them in a section at the end - is superior to including it in the post itself.
This also makes it possible to use spaces in hashtags, because you don't need to use space as a delimiter if you know it's ONLY hashtags in a given input.
#WildIdea: a fediverse server that only allows 500 (or X) followers, and if account number (X+1) follows, it goes into the "follow request queue" and any accepted follow pushes off another follower - sorted by last interaction.
How long is "Installing ruby-3.0.4..." supposed to take?
