@thomasfuchs does the transformer make a hum when it's on? We got one for the opposite use (US appliances in Europe) and it's too loud to keep on while the appliance is in use. Which in our case is a lamp, so basically, never.

Me to dev: "We don't need search infrastructure for these records, there's only 8 of them, and all code needs to pull its weight since it all has to be maintained indefinitely."

Dev to me: "Since it's already here, I don't think there's any harm in keeping it in."

🤔 🤦‍♂️

@jarkko mine (and friends) frequently crashes when going to sleep. It's incredibly frustrating, compared to the previous version.

@floehopper I'm also using FeedBurner; I think in part because I wanted a bit of resilience if my site went down (you know how reliable Vanilla is!). I'll be curious to see if you find any alternatives...

Only just discovered that the tweet site now lets you log in to multiple accounts at the same time. That'll be handy for LRUG at least...

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who cares about keeping the build green...

... and then I remember that yes, I _am_ the only person who cares.

I tried out HEY for a couple of weeks. It's definitely opinionated! I'm not sure the opinions are quite for me, but it's encouraged me to think a bit more about my own email habits.

@thomasfuchs does it seem faster than your current one? Don't reply for yes, don't reply for no.

It’s tempting to break my twitter silence, just to find an island I can sell them before they rot. But that would be madness.

Of *course* the week I go big into the stalk market, my turnip price just goes down and down 😐

When will I learn, that `brew update <some little thing>` can easily break some distant much larger thing, as it updates various libraries like openssl and readline and quietly removes the old ones that existing binaries depend on 😤

I'm not a front end developer and I don't know what I'm talking about, but using BEM and completely abandoning inheritance in CSS seems to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Twitter is such a giant pile of hot garbage. Maybe it’s not the company’s fault; maybe it’s the inevitable consequence of social media at scale. But still. Hot, hot garbage.
