Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

I’m starting a #Mastodon instance for indie app devs and companies to create accounts for their apps/products. The goal is to make it a place to build genuine community and provide customer support.

The rules will specifically prohibit spammy marketing stuff of other platforms.

I’m using @mastohost to run it too.

Happy #EarthDay, mes chéries. Take a moment today to appreciate the beauty of the planet we share. And try to do something good for the world, if you can. 🌍

I was on a podcast! You can hear how I use 3 (!) different window managers spread across 3 (!) different computers.

Cool feature I learned about:

If a join uses the same column name on both tables, you can shortcut the join condition with USING:

SELECT * FROM offices
JOIN employees USING (company_id)

@eightbitsamurai I feel the same way about Europe and their lack of overhead wires lining the streets.

@tari_alfaro Yeah I'm with you on accounts for sure. I ended up having Apple accounts anyway so it wasn't a barrier.

@tari_alfaro Yeah I'm digging it so far. I was on Safari previously and there're a few things I miss, but not many.

There it is. Google is breaking the basic trust model of the web so their force-fed AMP platform is slightly less confusing for users.

People can't tell they're on the wrong page if the address bar lies to them. #web #webdev

Hmm actually this isn't a thing that was fixed. It's just that I'm trying out Firefox and it works ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Whoever updated the mastodon web client to keep the currently focused toot in view, THANK YOU!
