Watching someone manual retab a file in Vim.

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

oof, i'm working on an several years old project i haven't touched for like a year or so

it's one of those projects where everything "just works" and the client uses it on the reg, but like, i'm the only person who knows how to make it work still because he never turned the thing into a fully fledged business

fortunately for me i did a not awful job documenting stuff for future bob

every docker container has its own runbook for how to configure it for a new cluster and everything

topher Dick @topher

I'm always pleased when past-topher didn't say "future-topher is smart, he will remember all of this". That doesn't happen as often as I would like...

Erik Olson @erkolson

Lol, I love when I do some kind of training thing and end up with 1 sentence of "notes" because I grossly overestimate my ability to remember context, details, or really anything at all.

Alex Conner @hello382

I have an eidetic memory so my notes tend to be 5 word written in strange places on an unusual size piece of paper I almost immediately discard.

It’s a hoot when someone wants to “read my notes”

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

i take a lot of notes

especially with like, apple notes, so i can just search for stuff i forgot

but usually in training situations i just write stuff down with pen and paper. i rarely need to look back at it but it helps reinforce any actual learning

Alex Conner @hello382

When someone asks me to think way back I usually say something like “was it sunny that day?” And then proceed to retell our entire conversation.

It, takes people a while to get used to.

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

that sounds like equal parts burden and gift

Alex Conner @hello382

Pretty much

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

i only remember all of the embarrassing or awkward things i've done with that level of detail

Alex Conner @hello382

I find weather makes a good checksum bit though, because it’s easy to look up again.

Days like today where I spend the whole day on the phone are pretty exhausting, and it comes with a super heavy task switching penalty

Erik Olson @erkolson

I also sometimes take really good notes that I review once or twice and rewrite and summarize to myself ... then other times, nothing. I think it is just me not being in the right headspace, or whatever.

Scott Toney @ascotttoney

Y’all go get the clothes off the line. Bout to storm.

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

that was a doozy too

kept me up most of the night

I found my new spirit animal

Trish Smith @thetrishasmith

4am GT emergency alert did not help the overall sleeping situation last night. we have a lot of trees that are adjacent to the house which always is a fun time during storms.

Cain @cain.skelton

I thought I’d turned off every alarm and alert I could but that 4am one still went off and woke me up

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

Likewise

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

my dog barked every time thunder struck

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

actually got to sleep for a while there and we had like a massive thunderclap like directly overhead or something and scared us both awake

Trish Smith @thetrishasmith

looks like a lot of folks had a lot of limbs come down last night. I’m glad i removed a lot of the low-hanging privet limbs last weekend but I’m not hype about having to rake up all the fallen bits.

one of my neighbors just got a new fence and a limb broke a few of the posts. i feel bad for her.

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

yeah I'm sure I'll have to go tour the yard and pick up crap before I can mow

Trish Smith @thetrishasmith

yep, exactly. but its going to keep raining all weekend :thinking_face: might have to wait

Nick Farley @nfreader

When you date an emergency manager, every alarm is always on and goes off whenever there’s weather

I think between the both of us we get at least a dozen notifications for warnings.

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

So this is random, but does anyone have a convenient list of like web cam sites of decent quality with nice scenery? I work in a basement with one window so I'm going to be a sad nerd and make a "window" out of one of the screens on the wall. Bonus points for pleasant background sound too

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Is the Atlanta Zoo panda cam still a thing?

Tanya Mott @tmott13

I know panama city beach does beach cams

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

@zsarver that's a good question, I'll look for that.

and @tmott13 exactly, beach views, mountain views, that's the kinda thing I'm hoping to find

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

amusingly I don't think I've actually ever been to Panama City in person

Tanya Mott @tmott13

there's also other states/cities on there

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

yeah

I also discovered this just now: https://resortcams.com/

which oddly enough includes a camera of the downtown area of my college down, which is definitely not a resort

Stephen Harper @deltaedge

I'll rep a city I used to live near, I'm shocked with how many cams they have https://oceancitylive.com/

looks like it's a bad day to go fishing

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

I love how some of these cameras I'm finding are like... live views of a bar.

Trish Smith @thetrishasmith

i gotchu.. saw a list on reddit the otherday

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

wow. I thought these things sorta lost popularity in the late 90s or so but thanks @thetrishasmith

I finally found a nice peaceful beach view as opposed to a live view of people in Florida drinking, so I think I'm good for a bit, but I'm gonna go through these this weekend and make like a favorites list

Trish Smith @thetrishasmith

My favorite is the weird one where you can turn on or off lights in a room

:innocent:

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

hah. Yeah a couple I checked out seemed to be publicly contollable and were a little distracting as people were swinging it around all crazy. The screen sits off to one side in kinda my peripheral, so I literally do want something just kind of acting like a window

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Twich plays turning on and off the lights

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

Anybody know of an alternative to readme.io (mostly looking for how nice the documentation is laid out)

John Corry @jcorry

readme.io looks nice…but $99/mo is a little steep

I use swagger for API docs…

eh…there’s a free tool for building docs, lemme see if I can find it

redoc

I can’t remember how I set all this up…but it works great

:disappointed:

wait here we go: https://redoc.ly

Here it is!

https://www.npmjs.com/package/swagger-repo

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

yea, I’m currently switching back and forth between readthedocs.io and Github Pages

I was trying to find a way to integrate them but it seems more trouble than it’s worth

John Corry @jcorry

try swagger-repo

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

I’m gonna check it out

thanks for the recommendation

John Corry @jcorry

yah, I think it integrates with github pages…

but my repo is private and I haven’t made that work yet…

Tanya Mott @tmott13

we use swagger at my job

Alex Riviere @fimion

you can also try vuepress if it's just docs. if you need the swagger api integration, then that might not be as useful

John Corry @jcorry

yah same here

I don’t know a better way..and I’m generally really happy with the API docs we maintain…so much so I have adopted it for my personal projects too

but god…yaml is a pain in the ass

nshttpd @nshttpd

for API you can also look at stoplight.io and apiary.io

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

I probably should spend a little time diving into swagger

Stoplight and APIary look good and much more affordable

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

Zach Pate @zp6827

@mdotobie I’ve used slate (https://github.com/lord/slate) and swagger. Slate’s layout can be a little weird sometimes, but it certainly gets the job done. Swagger seems to be prettier, but I can’t speak to the setup.

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

I definitely like graphql @robert.elwell but this is a small project

@zp6827 I LOVE THIS!!!

Zach Pate @zp6827

Good to hear! I really liked using it, and it was extremely simple to setup. Literally generates a static html page that you can host however you want. Hope it works for ya.

Here is a good example of it in the wild: http://docs.oauth.io

Erik Olson @erkolson

My kids like to watch the wildlife cams on explore.org

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

So I can just generate the html and host it it looks like. I want to try to keep it with the Github repo.

I’ve never researched how to get Github Pages to not generate html from markdown. I know it’s using Jekyll but I never deep dived into it. I suppose in the short term I could just through the static pages on a subdomain

Zach Pate @zp6827

Yeah, if it is for your personal project, you can literally just include whatever folder it is that has the css/js/html in your project, and allow the user to open it in a browser without having to actually host it.

Miquel Brazil @mdotobie

that’s actually pretty dope

The joy of unpacking after a move - just HOW many boxes labeled "misc computer" do we have? And can we sell this rj11 & rj45 by the pound?

Serial to lab cables... Who remembers those ...

How many phones ago was this adaptor?

Can the neighbor use this 80pin cable for tomato vine support?
