Today I read Writing a book: is it worth it? which turned up on Hacker News. I’m thinking about writing a book so this was a good read.
Today I read The danger of target=_blank and opener which has some good pointers about how to open links in a new window, e.g.
<a href="https://an.evil.site" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer nofollow">An evil site</a>
Today I discovered sequences in MariaDB. Gonna take them for a spin!
An article Don’t Compare Averages from Martin Fowler has lots of good info about data visualisation techniques.
Today I read The unrealized potential of federation.
This great article Backing up data like the adult I supposedly am popped up on Lobste.rs today. I think I’m gonna get myself an rsync.net account.
This discussion of App Consoles came up on Lobsters today.
This came up back on August 9th 2020 in #lobsters on freenode. They were doing a system upgrade and providing a report by using `watch` to `cat` together a HTML header and footer with `mysql -e ‘select * from information_schema.processlist’` to provide a status report. Thought that was a neat hack.
I enjoyed reading 10 Tips for Ramping Up as a Senior Engineer which turned up on r/programming today.
Today I bumped into My System Design Template which I thought was pretty neat.
