So I created an Evangelion title card generator because why not ?!

Now go and troll your friends. #theWorkshop
@metasyn I was trying to figure out how to maintain an atomic counter column.
I initially started out using Serializable isolation, but after a lot of debugging it turned out that what I actually wanted was Repeatable Read isolation.
Turns out, Serializable isolation performs page-level locking, so you can run into scenarios where concurrent updates to different rows in a table can fail if they are on the same page.
This week I learned more than I'd ever thought I'd know about transaction isolation in Postgres
@neauoire That definitely sounds like a good precaution, especially since the ocean is not known for being benevolent 😨
I think one benefit of building so much out in the open like you do is that it lessens the need for these sorts of digital continuity plans.
@johannesg I think it is important to consider the overhead/burden that leaving behind digital possessions brings. I've never really had to deal with this before, so I didn't think about that while writing this. Thank you for bringing it to my attention!
Being selective about what you end up offloading onto your successors seems to be a prudent decision.
Today I'm launching shards on my website: https://maxdeviant.com/shards/2020/introducing-shards/
These are a way for me to write down and share my rough, uncut thoughts without all the ceremony and polish of a proper post.
Shards also appear in my Atom feed, so subscribe to that if RSS is your thing: https://maxdeviant.com/atom.xml
(Also, let me know if there are improvements I can make to my RSS feed, I'm not a big RSS person).
@neauoire This is the most I've kept up with AoC of any year!
I don't know whether it's due to the puzzles (content and/or difficulty), the language I'm using, or just that my skillset has grown.
@royniang I've been meaning to replace dmenu for a while now.
Probably going to try out Rofi, but curious to know if there are others you would recommend?
@slisne I never thought about this!
I love my electric kettle, and it seems to boil fast enough for me 😅
@cloudhead I'm super excited about Radicle!
Very cool to have one of the maintainers here in Merveilles Town :)
I'll be checking it out as soon as there's a Nix package for it.
Recently released Radicle, a peer-to-peer code collaboration stack. Super excited!

Doing Advent of Code in PureScript this year.
Here's my solution for Day 4: https://github.com/maxdeviant/advent-of-code/blob/master/2020/purescript/04/src/Main.purs
Finally getting around to adding code completion for luxe/wren ✨
I’ve since cleaned up the formatting to match vscode, this was really early on when I got the plumbing down and completion was first coming through
