How to avoid drama on the fediverse (part 2):

Stop and think before you reply:
- Does this conversation benefit from my input?
- Am I the best person to speak on this topic?
- Do I have a full understanding of what's being said?
- Is that *really* what's being said right now?
- Do I know and/or understand where the OP is coming from?

If you answer "no" to any of these questions, shhhh.

Snow storm expected tomorrow (Monday). 3 electricity and internet cuts today. Will be a good time to check how dependent of (external) HTTP are our test suites and apps!

Second week in a row I'm not doing any work/programming during the weekend. Feels good. Wrists are hurting less too. I gotta make this into a habit. To me it's all about fighting the voice inside my head saying that I have to do more, deliver more than I actually do, which noone is even demanding. I'm telling this to myself.

How to properly test external APIs that do not have a sandbox/test environment? Only way I can think is mocks, which is super fragile. Another alternative is to have a fake profile in which you publish shitty test data, but this is not feasible when the API publishes anything you send publicly.

Who the hell knew that ^ meant Control key? Not me, for sure.

Anyway, back to regular life. Bye bye, nano.

I made sure to delete everything so git rebase doesn't crap my code. Seriously dude, don't mess my code!!!!

Folks talk about not knowing how to exit Vim. I just launched nano by mistake (I was just writing a Git command!) and now it's me who can't exit.

Well, Crustirons is not a band, but a punk-rocker friend of mine who makes belts recycling tires.

Customizing my laptop.

There's enough technology inside, so let it be music outside!

Ah, so nice! Delete lines matching a pattern, in Vim. Nice to clear logs and leave only the good stuff! Second thing I learnt today :-)
