Watching someone manual retab a file in Vim.
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
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...
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.
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”
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
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.
that sounds like equal parts burden and gift
i only remember all of the embarrassing or awkward things i've done with that level of detail
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
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.
Y’all go get the clothes off the line. Bout to storm.
that was a doozy too
kept me up most of the night
I found my new spirit animal
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.
I thought I’d turned off every alarm and alert I could but that 4am one still went off and woke me up
my dog barked every time thunder struck
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
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.
yeah I'm sure I'll have to go tour the yard and pick up crap before I can mow
yep, exactly. but its going to keep raining all weekend :thinking_face: might have to wait
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.
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
Is the Atlanta Zoo panda cam still a thing?
I know panama city beach does beach cams
@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
amusingly I don't think I've actually ever been to Panama City in person
there's also other states/cities on there
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
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
I love how some of these cameras I'm finding are like... live views of a bar.
i gotchu.. saw a list on reddit the otherday
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
My favorite is the weird one where you can turn on or off lights in a room
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
Twich plays turning on and off the lights
Anybody know of an alternative to readme.io (mostly looking for how nice the documentation is laid out)
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
I can’t remember how I set all this up…but it works great
wait here we go: https://redoc.ly
Here it is!
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
I’m gonna check it out
thanks for the recommendation
yah, I think it integrates with github pages…
but my repo is private and I haven’t made that work yet…
we use swagger at my job
you can also try vuepress if it's just docs. if you need the swagger api integration, then that might not be as useful
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
I probably should spend a little time diving into swagger
Stoplight and APIary look good and much more affordable
@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.
I definitely like graphql @robert.elwell but this is a small project
@zp6827 I LOVE THIS!!!
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
My kids like to watch the wildlife cams on explore.org
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
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.
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?
"WTF connector is that?" discussions with spouse
“Are you sure you’re going to need all of those cables again one day?”
