S8E5: the episode that was promised #GoT
Say hello to Telephant!
I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!
Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)
Join me here:
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
can confirm, rode metro near daily for 13 years, def improvement from 2016-2019 but not enough to keep me riding when driving isn’t that much more $$. ironically on my last day taking it there was a cracked rail/fire which ruined my commute with multi hour delay, not so much as a refund offer from wmata so I was happy to say “bye Felicia” 🚇 https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/trafficandcommuting/poll-washington-area-residents-warming-up-to-metro-again-but-that-doesnt-mean-more-are-riding/2019/05/09/8c38ce56-71b9-11e9-9f06-5fc2ee80027a_story.html

tl;dr made amazing bread
left the scoby at room temp from last kombucha brew instead of putting it in the fridge, when I pulled it out it had a funk to it which I realized could be used as a sourdough starter, also ended up using the excess heat from the kombucha to warm the yeast. this is the first loaf I’ve made that I can say I’m proud of 🥖💪

It's not just JS. It's computers in general. It's a constant game of staying up to date with how to do the same old things. Take Linux. You used to be able to just run some init scripts to restart services, and check your logs in /var/log, but now it's systemctl and journalctl all of a sudden. Also, you're apparently not supposed to use ifconfig anymore? Such changes are completely pointless to 99% of the users, for whom the old way worked just fine. It's just one more thing to remember.
