Do you have a #cyberdeck for daily use?

Came across this today: "Five Questions To Ask A Prospective Bishop"

This stood out: 'What is the nature of their vision? True vision does three things: it sees things as they are, both the sorryness & grandeur; it connects people to each other in both curiosity & solidarity...'

We need more places to be weird.

At comic-con there were lots of other geeks and artists dressed up that I wanted to chat with more, but they weren't really talking to each other. Most of the venue and interactions had to be about selling something.

That's what capitalism does. It takes a chance to make meaningful connections and turns it into a storefront.

We need more room for expressive people to actually meet each other.

#geeks using the #GitHub API
โš ๏ธ sometimes things that should _always_ have a user, don't. For example. A Review or a Comment have to be left by a user, even if that user is a bot, but sometimes the returned data doesn't contain it.

Apparently, when a user deletes their account, GitHub leaves dangling pointers. You'll see this in the UI, but on the back end it's just data with an impossible state. They don't repoint things to this "ghost" account

a screenshot from GitHub. It has a ghostly user icon that looks like the western idea of ghosts looking like translucent white sheets. the top of it has the shape of OctoKitty's head. 

it says

our codebase has "snippets" (don't ask ) that have a hardcoded central list.

if you add or delete to the list (which of course you need to from time to time) multiple tests fail because they're testing "magic numbers" that are just counting subsets of the list.

don't do this.
Make meaningful tests. Don't test that a list contains 96 items. Test that a FUNCTION returns items matching the criteria that generated it. Give the function TEST input and then test how it response.

#geeks anyone know of some example code for screen-scraping #trello ?

adding a "Power Up" isn't an option in my use case and they don't have a reasonable API for users so ... screen scraping, but calling the url of a "card" with your cookie doesn't actually get you the content of the card. ARGH

I can figure this out, but i'd rather not reinvent the wheel if i don't have to.

hey #tech #geeks what do you do with the dozens of miscellaneous power adapters around the house that might be unique to some device you canโ€™t currently think of, and are therefore scared to throw out?

The designers of This old stove decided that perfectly symmetrical knobs with a line of paint was the best choice. It wasn't. With repeated cleaning over the years, the paint has worn off. The interim fix was to use a marker to replace the paint, but that needs to be refreshed every so often. So I decided to fix the problem once and for all. It was only after the first print that I realized that it's more of a Star Trek knob.

Ran this test print past my wife and she said "make it so!"; I told her every time she uses a knob, from now on she has to say "engage!"

The controls for the burner elements of an oven, the left control is white with a semicircular tab. On the top of the tab there is a hand drawn line in black marker. On the right a red 3d-printed knob with an arrowhead tab. The top of the tab projects beyond the base circle. The bottom of the arrowhead is an acute angle. Together with the circle, the overall effect is similar to the Federation logo in the Star Trek series.

I skipped the whole #introduction thing, so Iโ€™d better put that right...

Iโ€™m Dave! Iโ€™m an aspiring writer (full-time day job is for a big multinational company but I wonโ€™t bring that here). Iโ€™m a #socialist and an #atheist but I promise not to shove that down anyoneโ€™s throats. I make videos with #NerdOD (featuring #geeks and #cosplayers) that you can check out in my links.

I hope to connect with people about #gaming, #scifi, #ttrpgs, #movies and #coffee.

Oh and hereโ€™s a picture of my #cats.

Photo of two cats lying on a sofa with their paws touching.
