@unlofl This would explain why so many just call and immediately hang up. it's an annoyance strategy!

Is Design Patterns a good book, or is it one of those things you read and then smugly tell everyone about?

Should I stream Monster Hunter tonight?

@swaggboi Yeah, that works alright, but it'd be nice to not have to have a separate window open just to monitor the chat

Does anyone stream on twitch from a Linux box? I'm struggling a little bit with my setup and I'm wondering if it's even viable to do certain things like overlays

you ever have unstaged changes, write some code that updates and commits one file, test it, then reset the changes so that the one commit isn't present in git history... but use reset --hard instead of reset --soft and wipe your unstaged changes?

@fool glad i'm not the only one lmao

i hate asking for help when i run into problems with software I'm writing build tooling for. it makes me feel like i shouldn't be on the team, which is frustrating because i joined as a ruby build engineer walking into a java/gradle shop and i'm pretty much forever doomed to be lost

ohhhhoho, yeesssss, it *is* time to boot into my new system, Debian

with no GUI

I'm setting up some build agents for a client's CI system, and I gotta tell y'all

after years of having to have a windowing system present to run software tests, there is NOTHING as satisfying as unchecking all the GUI options when you're installing a VM

and I really mean it, I don't think I've ever felt this kind of petty satisfaction, ever

take that, past me

the BEST part (read: THE WORST) is that, underneath it all, it's calling ACTUAL BASH SCRIPTS

seeing a package.json file, i believed this software was written in Javascript, but what a FOOL i am, how NAIVE i must be to belive that! for this software, this software uses ONE JAVASCRIPT BASH REPLACEMENT AND IS OTHERWISE ENTIRELY WRITTEN IN PHP

i don't know who needs to hear this, but when someone says business things should be people-driven and focus on solving genuine problems, they're dunking on your skunkworks team trying to use AI to make your sales team the best coffee possible, because you want your sales team to spend less time brewing coffee
