I grew up around Christianity in the American south and this is very true. The genius of Christianity is that it's a mind virus: In order to be a good Christian you have to convert others to Christianity. It's the GPL of religions.

Yeah, gotta agree here. I've lost a significant amount of weight, which I've talked about before, and I never had to resort to anything that horrific sounding.

Here's my advice for quick cheap healthy meals: get a microwave steamer. Throw frozen veggies and meat bits (I use Morningstar brand fake-meat strips but I assume real meat equivalents exist). Takes about ten minutes to make a meal, you can mix up the vegetables and any sauces you want to use on the whole thing.

throw random frozen veggies and fake meat strips into the microwave. this might be european snobbery but i know labradors who eat better

Mine requires minimal cooking.
It’s 8 eggs a day (soft boiled in a $20 egg steamer)... lots of bok choy or broccoli in avocado oil (oil for calories)... rice... and protein shakes. I microwave the veggies.

Protein shake recipe is Greek yogurt from Costco, frozen berries, oatmeal, a scoop of pea protein, avocado oil.

I combine the two to get 3000 calories a day.

I enjoy food sometimes, like the first few bites, but to me hunger is a disease and eating is a chore. I’ve always had a poor appetite and low-ish (21) BMI.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand patio11. The insights are extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of bingo card theory most of the blogposts will go over a typical reader’s head. There’s also Patrick’s optimistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Ramit Sethi, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these posts, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about BUSINESS. As a consequence people who dislike patio11 truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Patrick’s post on salary negotiation which itself is a cryptic reference to Dale Carnegie. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as patio11’s genius wit unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Kalzumeus tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

I might be missing something because I don't use Instagram, but:

quote:

Basically you get meme accounts to do a promotion of a profile that is currently private, and all the followers to a private profile get queued up, you can queue them up in the thousands or hundreds of thousands.

[..] So you can grow an account with like a few hundred followers to a hundred thousand+ real followers very quickly.

So basically the trick first still requires him to get "thousands or hundreds of thousands" of accounts to bite on the "promotion" and click on the follow button of his profile even though it's currently private, and then he can do that weird "toggle private flag to approve 100 at the same time" to appear like hot poo poo to IG's algorithms.

But one would think that getting those follow clicks in the first place would be the hard part (without straight up buying them, as he claims), and that having a private profile would massively discourage that.

Everything about Instagram culture is really trashy and contemptible, in the same way that everything about Twitter culture is reckless and odious.

There is no good social network because humans cannot deal with being in public 24/7 in a healthy way. IIRC someone once tried to make a social network where you could only have a limited number of friends roughly similar in size to real-life circles of acquaintances, which would probably have curbed out most of the excesses of people chasing fame, but I don't think it went anywhere.

Yeah I think the link on your control panel goes to "whatever the first unread page is".

I guess the pure REST design would be to have a GET call that doesn't update the unread count and a separate POST (maybe PATCH) that sets the first unread to whatever. The latter can also do double duty to support a "Mark all as unread" button, so it's not a totally wasted request.

More in general, there are plenty of scenarios where from the user's point of view you want to fetch some data AND update some other data as a single action. It's good CQRS design and more versatile to split those in two different API calls, but is it worth it to add a third proxy API call that simply makes those two calls in sequence?

As far as I understand it, in the age of HTTP/2 the overhead of making two HTTP requests to the same server instead of one should be negligible, so the question could be where do you want to put the dirty logic of "push $button means doing A and B" - in the client code or in the server code?

I’ve been thinking about an alternative to tailwind but I have no idea how to implement it.

I think what would be even more powerful is you configure all the classes with some kind of regexp. They need to be unique. You could provide a function as well that returns the correct css for any given captured units in the class name so eg. "mb-4em" you have template "mb-(\\d+)em" declared. The tool recognizes it and either just puts the number there, uses a mapping (4 becomes 16), or calls a function to return the resulting css properties.

What I like about it is you could just as well create more advanced utilities and the parser never generates any classes in advance. It would need some kind of watcher though to detect any new class aded to templates that match the definition file.

Then there would be no need to purge anything. Kind of a vague concept I’ll admit, but for me starting with a figma or sketch where designer typically does not folow a consistent guideline, it means I can just start writing templates and keep declaring utilities as I go because in the real world you bet that happens.

The current trend goes to multi-cluster environments, because it's way too easy to destroy a single k8s cluster due to bugs, updates or human mistake. Just like it's not an very unlikely event to kill a single host in the network e.g. due to updates/maintenance.

For instance, we had several outages when upgrading the kubernetes version in our clusters. If you have many small cluster it's much easier and more save to apply cluster wide updates, one cluster at a time.

I swear I'm going to add a bitcoin miner to my libraries and list it in spring.factories so that it autostarts whenever someone starts a Spring Boot application with my library on the classpath. There'll be an undocumented config property to turn it off or make it mine to a different address. That's standard practice with every other library that uses Spring Boot, so it's perfectly ethical, and it's not like anyone using Spring Boot would notice that their application was wasting a bunch of resources.

Maybe someone else did this already. That would explain a lot actually.
