I think the world would be a much nicer place if we stop putting people into boxes.

Every day I read about something that one person did, following an attack on a group of people that maybe had one thing in common with the other person.

Remember to be kind during code-reviews.

Half of the time when I'm furious about something being messy, it's my old code.

We can't be perfect. But, we can learn and be a little better next time.

I can't recommend the Obsidian Excalidraw plugin enough. It's wonderful to be able to draw diagrams and store them directly with my notes.

Also, if you've never heard of @obsdmd or @excalidraw then check them out!

Hey @github. Are there any plans for improving the Wiki editing experience?

Issues, comments and raw editing works perfectly with image assets; but wiki does not. Can we fix that?

Hey @natfriedman

I think it's a wonderful way to signal back to the developers that there are users that are interested in what is being released in a positive way.

Has anyone here migrated from "yarn" to "npm v7" on a project with workspaces?

What was your experience?

Tell me when you first used the Web without giving a date.

Moving my email from Protonmail to Fastmail is no easy task. Protonmail supports none of the email standards out there, which is also the reason for this move.

But hey: What are weekends for anyway ๐Ÿ˜„
