Damn I forgot that Firebug existed and what coding on the web was like those days. Looking back, the web ecosystem has improved a lot (albeit maybe adding more complexity than I'd like). Except CSS, it still sucks.
Seems like #solid server implementations don't support SPARQL yet, keep that in mind when working with applications storing a lot of data. The current recommendation is to use Globbing instead.
Gamifying Wikipedia for new editors
Since I started looking into #solid, I realized it's built on top of many existing technologies I didn't know much about. Check out some basic concepts I'd recommend getting familiar with before learning it: https://noeldemartin.com/tasks/implementing-a-task-manager-using-solid#comment-2
I enjoyed this talk by Rizqi Djamaluddin, where he goes into why data privacy is important and how we should be handling it: "Fundamentally Flawed: Privacy, People and the Age of Data" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ucz0UFaYuvs
Interesting, an open letter from DHH (Basecamp CTO) to Jeff Bezos (he was an early imvestor) https://m.signalvnoise.com/dear-jeff-a6319829f92a
#TIL you can use `array_filter` in PHP without providing the filter callback, and it will get rid of all the falsy values. Sweet! I've written logic for this myself many times, so I'll definitely start using this instead.
I guess if I want to charge it as fast as possible, I can always apply the ultimate "battery saving mode": turning it off.
I wonder why my phone doesn't allow activating "battery saving mode" when charging. Wouldn't it charge faster?
Mastodon is awesome, I just favorited a bot's toot, I'm not sure I have ever done that in the birdsite.
In case you're wondering, it was @alt_text
I just found out the app I use to listen podcasts has a "hidden" stats page. And I've realized how much time I spend listening to them. I enjoy them, but I consume them mostly when I cannot do anything else like reading or programming (basically exercise/commuting). Bittersweet.
I'm sure if I eliminated my commute there are some I would still keep listening thou :D.
There are two kinds of developers: the ones who rely on logging output and the ones who use a debugger.
I fall on the first category, but today I had to use a debugger (I needed to find a memory leak).
It was a good experience, so be sure to combine both to get the best of both worlds!
Please boost if it’s okay to befriend you, ask questions, ask for advice, rant, vent, let something off your chest, or just have a nice chat.
On creating git diffs Show more
#TIL I always thought it wasn't possible to show new files in git diffs, since `git diff` only shows changes on existing files. But you can add your changes to the staging area and use `git diff --cached > diff.patch`! That way you can later restore it with `git apply diff.patch`. It's basically like stashing, but having a file you can share with others :D.
I just noticed my tracker blocker had to block Twitter SDK and Google Analytics from an official website from my government where I had to submit official documentation... How far can this go? We all now the next inevitable step is having them in our home.
