Before the kids go to bed I always talk a bit about stuff. Today that stuff was ENIAC, the first real computer. They where impressed it could do in 30seconds what a person could do in 20hours, but more impressed by the fact the computer took up more space than the house. Since they are the generation that grew up with video calling with the thing in your pocket, it’s normal to be inconceivable for them…
@CarlCravens that’s odd, or at least it’s not a common thing here. Anyway, hope you get some nice reviews yourself.
@CarlCravens who gets the review of your boss? The boss above the boss?

@CarlCravens I always wondered about trash pickups and sinks and stuff. Or does everyone simply finishes every drink, coffee or tea completely? And what happens with the empty cups and dishes? So many questions…
Me: can you please let me know what you want to eat next week?
Me, this morning: so please let me know what you want, okay?
Ex: yes, I’ll think and let you know
Me sending text 2hours before: so I made the menu but left some stuff open, please check before I go to the store
Ex: ah, yes, I’ll check right away
Ex, after I improved, went to the store, unloaded everything and am cooking dinner: do you think the youngest will eat that? I don’t think so!
My eldest son will go on a school field trip and the sleepover is always brutal on him, so I’ve bought some very soft earplugs and went over his breathing exercises again. I really hope this will make his life easier… I really believe kids these days don’t have it easy, and everyone deserves a happy childhood.
@davidskg10 an apple cut into pieces, a couple of spoons of muesli on top of that, some cinnamon and then 2minutes in the microwave. Cover with some low-fat yoghurt and 🎉
@martijnbraam I’m always amazed with the speed and possibilities it has. Really awesome tool
@Hanuwu There was a 404 when following that link, just a heads up. Also, sounds like you had quite some fun with the compilation 😉
I’ve decided to leave this decision to future me and have a beer.
I realize this sounds a bit strange probably, but I feel writing regexes is a lot easier than xpath queries. There are so many possibilities and built-in functions in xpath, and I simply don’t use it enough to be fluent. I probably do 2-3 very simple regex a week, so most of the time I actually get them to work on first try.
Whenever I have a problem, I see if I can write some code to automate it. I need a new place and was tired of searching listings manually so I wrote a scraper that’s going over listings. For getting the data out of the scraped html page I’m using XPath queries. That means I now have a whole bunch of other problems and the original problem is pushed back!
Yak shaving for the win, I guess
