• โœ… Today’s goals:

    • Morning walk. (done!)
    • Experiment with the new @elixirphoenix 1.6 release.
    • Weekly food pickup.

    Not sure how I’ll end the day yet. I have a bunch of interesting books but might dig into my own Elixir project.

  • ๐Ÿ“š Enjoying a nice day in the shade of a tree, reading my books and listening to the baseball game on my radio.

  • ๐ŸŽฎ I finished Spiritfarer, a cozy management game about dying.

    I enjoyed it a lot. It is not a perfect, but you have to give a game credit that connects you to characters like this one does.๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ

    Depending on your thirst to spoil or otherwise influence your consumption of the new movie you may or may not want to check this out.

    The problem is choice.

    Book is written, but needs editing, printing, hence the Kickstarter project.

  • ๐Ÿ”— End of an Era: Man Clicks โ€œUpdateโ€ Instead of โ€œRemind Me Laterโ€

    They want constant updates about everything. Imagine if your smart dryer had available driver updates and it didnโ€™t emit a siren to let you know, just imagine that for a second. What a nightmare.

  • ๐Ÿ Fall is coming.

  • ๐Ÿ”Considering the escalation of ransomware and the kinds of software I’ve come to work on with @elixirlang (think big systems, finical transactions, utility companies) I feel like I need to level up my security game. Does anyone have a recommended learning path? #myelixirstatus

    The BIG problem is some work/client environments encourage this through undesigned communication patterns.

  • ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ I wish there was a way to tell LinkedIn that while I have iOS on my profile, I am not interested in any iOS job offers. Feels bad these recruiters are being led astray.

  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป As I prepare to get into some GraphQL work I rewatched this video course from @pragmaticstudio. I’ve done some basic Absinthe in the past but this was a great refresher. Loved it.

  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป New laptop, who dis?

  • ๐ŸŽฎ๐ŸŽน Anyone have a good / non-scammy source for video game soundtracks? I’m specifically looking to acquire Link to the Past (SNES), Sim City (SNES) and Mario64 soundtracks which I sometimes listen to via YouTube but would prefer local MP3 versions.

  • โ˜•๏ธ Good morning.

  • ๐Ÿ”‹ I loose faith in tech reviewers instantly when they just regurgitate the vendor’s own battery claims. Is it too much to ask people to do their own battery tests?
