New toy. It's not computer-related but helps to keep me happy just as well. Just don't buy it at a Nespresso shop. Third-party retailers sell it for cheaper, and you get the €40 (or equivalent) free coffee just the same. https://mastodon.technology/media/2O2oOCjaGVR6oCMx7Gk

There ya go. 😍 The shop clerk even gave me a huge discount, which makes things even better.
(This also reminded me that you can’t bargain on amazon. Another benefit of physical stores!) https://mastodon.technology/media/yxJd2HHZ3upehjKsjSA
That feeling when you gather motivation and perform a phone call to cancel your internet service. https://mastodon.technology/media/x72XCdSu0U4xl2ZkRMw
Bye babe, you did good for the past 2 years and 10 months. I’ll miss you. 💔😢 https://mastodon.technology/media/wA4bjEl5dy1IH3VayOs
Jekyll for iOS Update: Liquid compiler chapter. Great news! I assess the Liquid compiler as 90% done!
What's implemented: All filters, all operators, most tags, including control flow (if, else, case-when, unless) and iteration (for).
What's missing: The remaining iterator tags (cycle and tablerow), whitespace control, comments, and the dot operator to access objects.
I'm hoping to finish this by the end of this week, and than I'm back to coding the main Jekyll for iOS app!
In my Liquid compiler, there's the concept of a context that stores system- and user-defined variables. However, sometimes extra variables are available, for instance inside the body of a for loop. The solution I found was defining a "supplemental context" which allows variables to be defined on instantiation, but that delegates gets/sets of all other variables to its "supplemented" context. This is probably one of the most elegant use cases of OOP inheritance I have ever found.

I’ve solved the issue with my sugar cravings:
So I got inspired with the new Apple Watch complications and wrote a tiny app that shows the next *visible* pass of the ISS (or any other satellite) as a complication. The ring goes through dark blue (next 8h), light blue (next hour), and yellow (pass in progress) stages. It's pretty nifty! Bottom left complication in picture:
