reading: Clever vs Insightful Code 

Almost every interesting generator requires some insight to come up with. That’s a big barrier to people just starting out with [Property based Testing], which hurts adoption.

what an… insightful aside by Hillel Wayne.

i did find property based testing really painful to get into, didn't realise the pain came from having to think

@polymerwitch @Moss yeah I remember when Brooklyn was like that... I met a lot of hackers with questionable personal hygiene...

@nicknicknicknick you know, I read somewhere that that pause music was the result of a music programming error they decided to keep in. iconic

@aynish now that you have a taste you're gonna be cutting boards left and right

work, jira 

that feeling of pressure when your jira tickets are normally in the 4-digit range and you are assigned a feature ticket with 2 digits

Looks useful, especially for reading technical PDF documents (where you need to do a long of referencing and jumping around). On HN, the developer promises MacOS and Linux versions soon.

RFC 8984: JSCalendar: A JSON Representation of Calendar Data

Beaucoup d'applications gèrent des agendas, avec des réunions à ne pas oublier, des évènements récurrents, des rendez-vous précis. Le format traditionnel d'échange de ces applications est #iCalendar/#jCal. Ce #RFC propose une syntaxe #JSON mais, surtout, un modèle de données très différent, #JSCalendar. (Et, non, #Mobilizon ne semble pas le gérer encoe.)

S06E12: Manic Pixie Nightmare Dinosaur

Johnny Joestar min-maxed his character sheet and put all his knowledge points in "horse". Araki can still only draw three faces, one of which is Britney Spears (not a criticism!). Diego Brando slowly turns into both a dinosaur and also the worst possible plus-one to a Tinder hook-up. Eliz and Courtney remain unapologetic Dio stans. Johnny's stand looks different now when he uses it and so of course we have to Explain that. Gyro is growing and developing as a character, which we can see by how he wads Johnny up into a tiny ball. And hope you weren't too attached to that dead bear because it's a dinosaur now.
