It feels good when you finally figure out how to fix something that has been stumping you for weeks. 😄

I appriceate when work code takes a while to build/compile. Gives me a few minutes to relax and think. Watching the text scroll. by can be a little hypnotic.

Well the build finished as I was typing this and there is an error, sooo

Getting a little nervous with work. My current project now has some fairly hard deadlines. 🥴

Here is my post.

Not mentioned:
Lots of fediverse platforms like mastodon and peertube have RSS feeds too. I don't use them so I can't speak of their quality.

Have fun :)

that Very Easy difficulty is hard man 😔

It really frustrates me when invidious sites just decide they can't play the video. Especially when it is in the middle of a video. I can't even see the timestamp of where I was.

Yet another reason MPV is the ultimate youtube player.

Sponsorblock has become one of the best add-ons I have ever installed and I regret not installing it even a second sooner. It makes so many videos far more bearable.

Interesting Minecraft thing.

The lava kept creeping down the waterfall and generating cobblestone in a specific formation that allowed it to continue creeping down.

Totally natural.

New blog post about how to run a command every time a specific program stops running. (With a cool script I wrote)

I'm now pretty happy with where I am with blocking javascript as a default, the web is usable again :)

I could also potentially just alias foobar into something like:
alias foobar="foobar ; cleanupFoobar.sh"

But then wouldn't there be potential for the program to be run outside of a context where that alias is set?

Is there an easy way to run a script every time a specific program finishes? Say I have a program foobar which leaves unnecessary files behind, and I want to run cleanupFoobar.sh every time that program finished running. Is there a standard for this? The best I can think of is to have something checking regularly for the foobar process until it sees that the foobar process is running. Then at the next instance it is not running, run the script.

Ahh yes. I am sure the guy has taken out a youtube ad to share with me the next big investing secret and make me rich. It's certainly not a scam. Noooooo. (Also before anybody asks I am in a weird situation where I have to watch youtube videos on qutebrowser which has no way to block video ads. Normally I would do mpv.)
