Hey web developer friends...

I'm exploring the world of simple build scripts or tools. For example, I'm making a lot of slides these days using Reveal JS. Instead of cloning the repo over and over, I'd like to be able to spin up a template project using the terminal. What's an easy way to do this? I have no idea about where to even look.

The alien civilization was long gone when we found their planet. Only a few crumbling ruins under the vegetation showed where they had lived.
But the ghosts of their music still lingered, for those who could hear the echoes of dreams. Alien words sang: neh-ver-goh-nah-let-yu-dahn

Ok, thoughts on service workers for web apps? I'm building a registration site for our school district's PD, it would be opt in and show you notifications about new PD added or if a scheduled event is coming in the next day.

Finish one function, introduce 6 new bugs and a broken dependency.

It's 7AM and my kids aren't up yet what do I do?

Time to build out native streams for stations that aren't local.

Oh /MAN/ I'm pumped.

I finally got Google Music streaming through my Raspberry Pi using Pi Musicbox. The device ID needed to be set to an Android device (because Google is insane). Now I can plug the pi into my home stereo and control it through a webapp on my phone.

This is sick.

I might turn off my internet for the rest of the summer. I need a break from interneting.

* drive section in the FOOTER
* left-hand nav running all the way down the length of the ship
* a CAROUSEL to replicate gravity
* powered by COLDFUSION”

Medium is also a closed silo that profits from other people's work. And their comment system is notably horrible.

I can understand posting to your own blog and syndicating to Medium as a concession to the hellscape we live in.

They absolutely do not support Do Not Track. They take note of it, and tell you that they comply, but the detailed info that you get by clicking through that notice indicates that they absolutely do still track you.

I'm on vacation. All incoming email is marked read and archived immediately. My automatic reply tells people to wire again after July 12. If it's important, they will.
