Aggregations in #MongoDB, yay or nay? IMHO, a good idea, but often what could otherwise be solved by a couple of joins and groups in an RDBMS, ends up becoming a super convoluted aggregation pipeline.
What has your experience been?
I like to remember when at my old company one of the senior developers, out of nowhere, burst out in frustration while working: "Ugh! Who did this? Who put this in the controller? That's so stupid! I've been debugging this for hours! Seriously, who did this?"
We all turned around, holding our breath, and then he, still upset, added: "I was probably the one who did it, by the way".
@thomasfuchs written by the Niklas himself? Same here.
"Neon and corporate dystopias: why does cyberpunk refuse to move on?"
Cyberpunk has been moving on but the ultrarich, like the folks that pay The Guardian writers' salaries, will never fund cyberpunk that challenges the capitalist/neoliberal status quo, and will never pay you to cover it in their billionaire propaganda rags passing for journalism.
TIL that pretty much most jeans on the market today are being artificially processed, in order to soften the denim. Believe it or not, but this sort of “processing” involves washing the jeans multiple times over, often throwing bags of volcanic stones in the washer to help “beat up” the denim and make it softer.
Kino.social is a quiet site where you can watch nice films without any distractions or tracking:
All of the movies are creative commons or public domain titles, embedded from either PeerTube or Archive.org. (There are no YouTube titles due to YT's invasive privacy policies.)
The selection is still very small as we've just started, and we're trying to avoid the "firehose" approach of archive.org.
Post a reply if you have suggestions for films to be added.
I came to #Bremen again! The first time in three years and for now, only for a weekend. It was a moment of reconciliation with the past and a way to look at the place with new eyes.
I love it!!!

Today, I lost my job. In two weeks, the $25/month cost of the server will become a significant part of my expenses.
I don't want this server to die. The reality is we only have one member who posts regularly (VPG) but I am interested in what #Vegan Fedi thinks about this (if anything at all).
Please boost this so I can gauge if there's anyone beyond our local TL that may have help to lend.
Worst case scenario: I pass the torch.
I want this thing to grow!

The photo on the top represents my heart’s activity during a Saturday full of physical activity - having walked more than 15 km in total. The photo below it represents a day at the job - mostly, sitting behind the laptop and solving issues. STRESS KILLS! https://preslav.me/micro/2018/09180740/
Started work on a #microblog, which will be co-hosted as part of my original blog: https://preslav.me/micro/ Not much yet, but posts and features will come one by one. For now, I need to create a workflow, which will allow me to easily post to it from my mobile phone.
Anyone ever tried to post to a #Jekyll site hosted on Github, using only an iPhone? I heard that WorkingCopy makes it easy to commit and push easily and can be included as part of Workflow/Shortucts
@freakboy3742 Sometimes, I am having the same feeling about Swift. Indeed, Chris Lattner has been a driving force in the beginning, but lately, the evolution of the language has been left to the community. This is, of course, a great thing, but also plagued by the same divergence of opinions that JS suffers from. Having a BDFL is not such a bad idea after all.
Can’t endorse this thread enough.
I don't know about you, but I feel really exhilarated when I cover a functionality with unit tests. In reality, we can rarely start with the tests up-front (TDD-style), or even cover a functionality with tests before a realese. Deadlines often prevail, you know. Yet, once I cover a feature with enough tests (even after the fact), it is as if a 10-ton rock is falling off my shoulders. I can finally free my head, and move on, without anticipating when the thing will crash in production.#microblog
