I swear to God I am this close to becoming that eccentric old lady with 12 cats who binds all her DOM events with custom data attributes.

My Grail pen of fifteen years just arrived. It is BEAUTIFUL, it writes like a dream despite being way finer than anything I normally like, it's wet, it's light, I'm in love! Vintage Pilot Myu fine.

I swear to Gawd, in a building full of people demanding to be called engineers, why can't one single person take ten seconds and reattach the chain thing to the handle thing in the toilet instead of staring at it dumbly?

I just polished some nibs for the first time. The improvements were drastic and I feel like I just unlocked the potential for some really expensive hobby upgrades in the future.

I beat Iudex Gundyr, I explored the firelink shrine, I got my ass bit by a skeleton dog, I'm pleased with my evening.

I picked up a game project today that I haven't worked on for 8 months. I read through the code, and I was genuinely pleased with what I found. Now I'm worried that I'm not growing as a person because I don't hate past me.

Programming style question: say I'm returning a value that is conditional on a flag, in JavaScript. Is it better to return a conditional value (return bool ? this : that) or conditionally return a value (bool ? return this : return that) and why do you think this?

I still don't understand why people get so excited about Markdown.

"JavaScript for React developers" tutorials are real things, and just now jQuery died laughing. (Donate to the EFF in lieu of flowers)

Today I learned that the only mascot for cobol is for specifically GNUcobol, and the mascot is just another gnu but one that looks really distressed

So, I'm a senior dev now, and I realize part of my job is to be sick of your bullshit, which I totally am, but the hard part seems to be figuring out just how much.

I've been writing JavaScript, and before that php, for a long time. This week, I've been trying and failing to get up and running in a Microsoft environment, and right now I'm trying to downgrade from visual studio 2019 to 2015 to see if that fixes me. I am not impressed.

I'm currently reading How to Win Friends and Influence People, and I feel I should be live-blogging the absurd parts. Which is most of the parts .

Can we go back to AI winter again? Because I'm sick of this shit.

I'm still skeptical about how maintainable the styles are, but I like Vue single file components anyway. They remind me of the server side html includes we wrote 15 years ago, or the pug html includes I wrote last week

Drat. Can anyone suggest resources for a crash course on the .net ecosystem for a js developer who grew up on php?

Has anyone here ever used one of those react component download/plugin type websites? I just learned they were a thing.
