Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.
#GURPS done old school with the exception of my laptop + MapTool. Classic, simple and fun.
All of the players never played before and were provided simple, pre-made sheets for a one-shot adventure. It was a lot of fun!
Just a reminder to my tech friends here who may also be tabletop friends, I have a tabletop channel!
I've found more ways to share there as I'm exploring new tooling.
Find me there! @tratz
For all the hate the federated timeline gets, it's probably the most human. When you're there at the top, someone somewhere is reaching out to anyone anywhere and for a moment, that's you.
You might not understand them and you might not know what they're going through, but you hear them.
For a moment-- across space --you're united with a stranger in time. That's simply unfathomable.
I feel like my code wasn't pretty to begin with, but I'm sure this isn't much better.
Especially when objects need to be organized in a specific *order* to be restructured into arrays and consumed in a specific way.
From a readability standpoint, yes, I have many module methods that I can (and have) reused but I do feel like the number of loops/iterations have gone up. The code base is definitely larger, too.
I feel an ugly pull to go back on much refactoring and it sucks. I won't though, don't have time
Feeling a little weird about the way I'm using functional programming whilst dealing with object storage.
A lot of what I've learned/practiced deals with data in the form of arrays.
In the context of my current project, I built it over a year ago using Objects and iterating over objects using for...in loops.
Coming at it now I haven't changed the data as the API that I interact with appreciates Objects...but now I restructure objects into arrays a lot to preform functions on the data. [1/2]
Only my meddling in simple web development could push one Firefox browser tab to eat up 10Gb and nearly crash my machine with it's humble 16Gb of RAM.
Something tells me Firefox doesn't just garbage collect my mistakes every time I reload my tab where I'm looping over data a dozen times and debugging my mistakes. Probably not the best design choice.
Though, I suppose it's mostly my fault.

I Don’t Know What I’m Talking About, But... externally this seems like a huge change that Kubernetes is making because it’ll be more convenient for *them*? I dunno,
I’m just glad I never took the advice to run this instance on Kubernetes. Docker is bad enough, folks!
I'm a Linux nerd, web developer, gamer, drummer and music lover.
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!
