A friend and I are developing a planner based around both planning and tracking, and we are trying to see how many people currently do this. Please take a minute to answer these 10 quick questions on tracking. https://goo.gl/forms/53of0ydjdZwgLS602
Blogged: Creating a NuGet package is an excellent way to zip up and redistribute your class libraries, but there are a few details about versioning to sort out before that process is streamlined and effortless. https://whereslou.com/2018/09/versioning-and-publishing-nuget-packages-automatically-using-azure-devops-pipelines/
New feature on https://status.mastodon.technology/ – finally done tweaking it – When we are in a maintenance window, you'll be able to tell at a glance, as the site will have a pinkish background.
If you want to scrape to see if we're in maintenance or not, the outer html tag will have class="maintenance" set on it (which is what flips the bg color in the first place).
OK, I stood up a rudimentary bot to pull the RSS feed from the US NOAA National Hurricane Center. You can find it at @HurricaneBot
I don't normally ask for such things, but I'd appreciate a boost on this one. Hopefully it will be a help to someone.
I needed to create versioned .zip and .tar.gz files from each build of a #dotnet console app project I'm working on. Wrote a blog post about it. https://whereslou.com/2018/09/producing-a-zip-or-tarball-when-building-a-net-core-console-app/
I'll probably also share links to blog articles I write. Hope you don't mind.
Last year I made a sandwich bread recipe that was super good and thought I had lost it forever. Today, I found my bread recipe!!!!
I immediately wrote it down in my current pocket notebook and have also scanned it into my phone. If you want some REALLY good sandwich bread and you like baking, this is my gift to you.
Nice use of dotnet cli extensions. "dotnet tarball" - I like it. https://github.com/qmfrederik/dotnet-packaging
I think I might start blogging again... Maybe... "Well, I’ll just come right out and say it. I’m not really a fan of mock libraries for unit test code. I think they’re the wrong kind of lazy."
@ashfurrow hi, just joined Mastodon, but I've been online for a while and have a few experiences hosting community spaces and whatnot. I was curious if your instance has any policy statements, code of conduct and the like yet? If not I'd suggest looking at the Django one as a basis. I've used it before, is nice, and is licensed with creative commons. https://www.djangoproject.com/conduct/
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
