I wrote a book. Please buy it.
Hi. The second edition of CSS Master will be released Oct 5.
You can order a copy now, though, and you'll receive it on the release date.
Thank you very much for your support.
Apps like Pocket and other blogs understood that users want to read the content. So when users start scrolling down to READ the content they hide the sticky header. When user scrolls top, they predict that user might want something else and display the bar again. Nice experience.
Navigation, especially on sites and apps that focus on content reading should be like a good friend: around to help when you need them but don't want them to be around 24/7 ^^
>Ever wonder why your phone needs 30 to 60 seconds to boot?
YES, ALL THE FUCKING TIME
My calculator has a CPU which is literally 4,000 times worse than my phone's CPU and it boots to an interactive graphical user session on a fully preemptive multitasking Unix system before you can even take your finger off of the "ON" button
#Ruby could really do with a good, high-level, HTML parser. Nokogiri's syntax, even with css selectors, is cumbersome compared to something like jQuery and Hpricot left along with _why_.
Whoa never even thought of running ChromeOS virtually

There's a lot of customer culture attitude in Mastodon-the-community, where people treat Gargron and other devs, the instance admins, moderators, etc. like service workers. It's a spoiled, entitled attitude, where "the customer is always right" and it's okay to be abusive or demeaning to people providing a service when they don't give you what you want.
The fediverse isn't a corporate model. When you're rude or demeaning to someone here, you're being abusive to volunteers building a playground
In 2014, I added ASCII art to Sidekiq's bootup, the now-infamous kicker.
I thought "I need something even better for Sidekiq Pro customers". I recalled my BBS years and thought ANSI art would be awesome.
I found an ANSI artist on DeviantArt and emailed him about commissioning something similar. He replied, saying "I don't charge for my work, here's something for free (!!!)".
That's how I got Roy/SAC, world famous ANSI artist, to build Sidekiq Pro's boot screen.
Amazing to see the entire stack for something as powerful as #Mastodon laid out in a "point and click" text file, with email, search, etc. From a Github commit today: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/8477/commits/3ba0b532299e7b00bde425071a76d19651e09bc8#diff-e4ebe2488bac90aac69eb1dff885418a via @webinista
I find it hard to believe this, expect London will see Bird or Lime or $clone within 6 months, they just dropped in Paris. https://www.wired.co.uk/article/electric-scooters-london-san-francisco-lime-bird-spin
Made a #MySQL "mytaillong" command to monitor long queries in real time (like slow log, but queries happening right now)
On Twitter, I always felt like my eyes were darting towards the retweet/like counts even before I read the tweet. "Do my peers approve of this?" "Is this controversial?" "Is it okay for me to like this?" On Mastodon, you have to explicitly click on the toot to see the counts, which at least forces you to read the thing before considering what others think of it.
