I don't know if I'm reading too much into this or what, but I noticed a pattern:
- Contacting support from my home IP means that I get a good customer service rep, even when the company is known for having bad customer service.
- Contacting support from my phone or on university wifi is a mixed bag.
Users will be given refunds but the books themselves will no longer be readable. If you made notes on the titles, you'll get $25 credit as a, "we're sorry you'll no longer have access to the notes you took on all those books. Here's $25 and we'll call it even!"
In other news, the safari per-tab private browsing feature is kinda cool. LinkedIn in one tab doesn't know about the other tab 👌
(They actually probably do anyway because of other fingerprinting but...)
The new Raspberry Pi 4 is here !!!!!
FreeBSD runs Firefox okay so it should be fine.
I keep going full circle with web frameworks. I liked Rails and Laravel because I can develop things really fast, but they're also super complex (and Laravel is better for large companies where money isn't really an issue, all the really magical stuff in the ecosystem is subscription-based).
Then again I also liked the various Go, Rust, and Python web frameworks for being simple and pretty fast (especially Go).
#ScreenshotSunday MySQL deleted all my packages last week. Not too big of an issue since I'm installing them as I need them, but it's mildly annoying.
The project was an invite-only survival Minecraft server (like the old days). I was getting too many requests to whitelist people so I let people do it themselves.
It also has a Kotlin component that runs as a plugin to the actual gameserver and verifies logins against the API.
I decided to use Rails for my web project instead of Go or Elixir and I’m super happy with that decision.
It’s setup in a way such that normal programming intuition can’t carry me (Rails seemingly automagically picks the right function to call based on what I name it...) so it’s frustrating at first but this is definitely the easiest way to make web applications.
I wouldn't even mind if it was $19.99 or something ridiculous like that. Why doesn't this exist :(
