Hi! I'm a software developer, a dad, geek and a gamer.

I work at Greitco.com with frontend & & related stuff. I have & & Gitlab as my tools to manage dev processes.

Hobbies include:

hard scifi or no physics at all, I do not care
(s) oh boy I got almost 100
Pen & Paper (s) currently The One Ring RPG & Edge of the Empire
, , , + other consoles...

As another money sink Britain will create it's own GPS system like EU, Russia and USA. It will cost billions and take years.

It will not make an agreement with EU to use Galileo like Norway & Switzerland.

Iteration is the key to quality code and most of us never iterate on our code because we don't know how. It is not a skill that is actively taught or practiced (I rarely see it). So instead we apply random patterns and call it quality.

Monday development progress.

Every step of the process fails at least once.

Day in the life of software developer. 😂

In actuality I have read specifications till my eyes bleed and my brains feel slushy as snow in March after 1,5h of meetings.

We've got a new car, haven't had a chance to drive it more than 30km in 3 days, it's hard to concentrate on non car things...

Time to write some code...

Let’s see, where is Oldmar, Fl?

15 miles from Raymond James Stadium?!?

I wonder what the target was?

I'm still fucked at the fact that the FBI and DOJ are even thinking about not prosecuting some of the insurrectionist because they think it will overwhelm the courts. That's never a consideration for people of color. They always seem to find a way for us without complaining.

How to identify white supremacists:

Step 1: condemn white supremacy in unequivocal terms.

Step 2: wait for white people to get offended.

Step 3: you have found the white supremacists.

32 Docker images running and time stands still.

Very enterprisey.

I guess I need to update my hardware soon™.

Ah, apparently something gets clipped on mp4 conversion from gif.. Anyhow the end result is that codeSetX is only CodesetCodeLabelPair.

As a programmer, when you call a function (or procedure or method or other piece of code), you should always check that it succeeded and if not, handle the error.

This is easy to get wrong.

A quality of a programming language is how easy it is to overlook handling of an error.

Good: Rust Result values; Python exceptions.

Bad: Unix system call integer codes; C functions that return NULL for error; shell scripts that invoke commands that can fail.

(Any command can fail.)
