In-reply-to » @prologic on yarn.social I cannot see the link for the list of pods Media

Found the problem! Had to do things by hand to figure out wtf was going on!

2022/08/13 23:58:37 build: index.md
exec: "jointoday.sh": cannot run executable found relative to current directory
exec: "pods.sh": cannot run executable found relative to current directory

Has Alpine changed some security policies on their image?! 🤔 🤦‍♂️

@stigatle@yarn.stigatle.no Don’t you hate it when things breka unexpectedly and you can’t figure out why or how?! 😳 Been racking my brains over this one and I can’t figure it out for the life of me. Locally ths tie builds fine, but the docker build (that’s how it’s built and hosted) is somehow missing these bits 🤔

In-reply-to » I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😢 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Speaking of which… I’m curious how you would have implemented this little demo:

GPT3 Demo

Source: https://git.mills.io/prologic/gpt

You can tell I just “whacked” it together pretty quickly – mostly imperative, procedural style.

In-reply-to » Probably my best attempt at “airplane in front of the moon”, yet.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Wow! 😳 That is an amazing shot! 👌 How lucky did you have to get to snap that? I’ll bet you had to be quick? Or were you watching/waiting for the right moment and knew it would happen at some point? 🤔

In-reply-to » @prologic I found the Atom feed, but I'm worried it might be too noisy, I don't want to overwhelm my feed reader too much. Hmm...

@mckinley Good question. I’ve been fiddling with the times myself and I’m finding it hard. The one constraint I can’t seem to make work is @darch@neotxt.dk’s request so it lands on his Sunday morning instead of Saturday. Probl3m with that is I’m then up late the day before my work week (Monday) which isn’t great! 😅 I don’t mind being up late, but I’m getting too old to be up late all the time or just before work the next day 😂

Anyway, who’s coming today? I don’t mind if it’s just you and me @mckinley

wow 😳 this has to be one of our longest yarns in a while 😳 @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org you might be interested in my observe package

In-reply-to » Object-Oriented Programming is Bad - YouTube

you’re completely right about half of the things that he said in some of his rants which have no basis in fact some of which I think are actually completely wrong as you pointed out.

however the only point that he does make that I do agree with based on my own experiences as well as one of encapsulation which just doesn’t work. In my opinion I think interfaces are a better way to encapsulate behavior ala Go.

@xuu@txt.sour.is +1 on metric driven development (MDD?) Very important to have in a production system, service, whatever (codebase). I’m not going to look at your logs and try to decipher them, I want to see wtf happened at a specific point, then go hunt down logs around that specific time interval.

Object-Oriented Programming is Bad - YouTube

This was a really interesting video. I think he really has a lot of valid points here, especially on encapsulation. I also especially agree on the point of just writing your program procedurally rather than getting bogged down in abstractions that just lead to premature mess – or something I’m paraphrasing 😅

What do you think? 🤔

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I think that’s spot on. Deliberate and careful design of errors is probably just as important as good interfaces 👌

It makes me think that really we should just be defining our own error types all the time 🤔 Maybe…

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I think the most interesting thing about errors.New() is just how stupidly simple it really is:

// New returns an error that formats as the given text.
// Each call to New returns a distinct error value even if the text is identical.
func New(text string) error {
	return &errorString{text}
}

// errorString is a trivial implementation of error.
type errorString struct {
	s string
}

func (e *errorString) Error() string {
	return e.s
}

That’s it! 😂

In-reply-to » I think I don't understand how threads work on here! I keep replying to threads involving multiple people but there are not in the @ list.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci we actually have thought about and discussed the idea of subscribing to tags. I think it’s actually in our backlog but we haven’t implemented it yet 👌

In-reply-to » Haven't posted on twtxt in a little bit; hope you've been good, people! Got a cool little music player project that I've been working on since March for my car. Hoping to reveal it publicly soon.

@stutteringsteve Oh hey! 👋 Nice to see and hear from you again 🤗 I’m sure we’d all love to hear about your project 👌
