I just released a Laravel package that makes retrieving the origin country of a request super easy.

Just call $request->country().

I'm considering writing a Laravel package that performs geolocation on a request level. What do people think?

cloudflare being down taking down like half the internet is a good example of why centralization is bad

It's been estimated that today's #Cloudflare outage is effecting about 10% of all websites world-wide.

If a lot of your online world is down right now, your word and research topic for the day is #decentralization

Two wind turbines are in a field.

One says to the other, "What type of music do you like?"

The other replies, "Well I'm a big metal fan".

UXDM can now source data from Microsoft SQL server databases, using the new MSSQL Source object. 🎉

If you need to migrate data from a MSSQL DB, using PHP, this might be a good option.

looks pretty amazing. The concept of being to play as anyone will be very impressive if its implemented as they seem to be suggesting.

@HerraBRE Nice. I might give it another go. It's been years since I've tried out KDE.

GNOME discourse 

@HerraBRE That's my reasoning for using for using Ubuntu as well, the 'Just Works' factor.

How did you made the switch to KDE from a regular Ubuntu install? Just installed the kubuntu-desktop package?

GNOME discourse 

@HerraBRE What distro are you using KDE on out of curiousity?

@hypolite Makes sense. What kind of obsolete tech have you used?

@hypolite That's good. It's a job most developers cringe at, but safe refactoring is the best.

@hypolite Indeed. It's almost never a good idea to use a new and shiny bleeding edge technology on an important project.

@panigrc Definitely agree. There are far better elements of programming that should be memorised. Principles are far more valuable than syntax.

@hypolite Nope. Don't remember that one without looking. At a guess, is it one that expands to a full ISO compliant date format?
