@sir Hey Drew, I think big problem is maintaining a blog. I've started few tech/floss blogs but it's really hard to get feedback and further motivation without pushing comments, or google analytics. Also SEO game is rigged towards big websites.
All that being said I agree with some of your points - technical blogs are great fun and great for solidifying your own knowledge. At the beginning of this year I've started http://crawl.blog/ a blog about web-crawling :)
I love how even the most basic operations in #mysql are O(mystery) complexity. Want to alter column type? Well that will either take 2 days or 20seconds depending on your settings 😂🔫

Just got 12k rep on #stackoverflow.
Haven't been working much on it and while I'd love to claim that I don't have much time these days (which is partially true) but the real reason is that the competition is getting very fierce which feels like a bittersweet victory 🙃
The growth of contributors over the past 2 years is really noticable, well done guys!
Together with #afterlife this month probably had the best releases Netflix ever had. Worth every penny of this month's sub fee, let's see if they can keep it up!
Got some #debugging to do. Batch number 2 is up. This time I went with even more local stuff. Some appear to be healthier as they have pictures of some root everywhere. The 3rd one with a snake and cheap font kinda scares me though.
@jaywink sustainability and stability is important for long term economic growth too. I don't think any government enacted green policies through sheer kindness of their hearts.
One thing I learned from bitcoin is that the best way to fight corruption is to center your system around greed. It's much easier to use the carrot than the stick when it comes to economics.
@wickedbloodfart doesn't everything these days? 😅
They all taste the same though, shame. Also their dirt cheap. One is like 30 cents usd.
They did the trick yesterday. I think I already built up immunity today though. Back to coffee!
@isagalaev It's a meme dude. But I like the self-documenting nature of type annotations. We adapted them at work so other devs could catch up with the code faster in case someone needs to hotfix something on a spot.
It's a great optional feature that really doesn't hurt anyone.
