Has anyone developed a good system for managing their web usage and hobbies?

I've got this e-ink screen I'm trying to do something with. When I'm working on it I end up with like 10 different tabs open, between docs pages, open source projects, spec sheets, etc. Then I go back to work on Monday and close them all.

It's not that I need to bookmark the relevant sites, it's that I wish I also had some contained browser history just for working on this.

@derickr @preinheimer I second this, and have done this with both FF and chrome-based browsers. They all sync based on profile as well, so you can keep history, tabs, extensions, etc synced separately.

For my work computer, I actually have two sets of work credentials, so I have a profile for each. I also keep a separate one for when I need to demo things.

Good god, it's been 12 years. Can we stop spreading the fractal of bad design article already?

Do better, @php_discussions - not everything needs to be shared again and again, particularly articles like this that haven't aged well.

@preinheimer I remember getting my first ICQ request from somebody in the mid- to late- 90s... I never really used it, but I remember how hyped it was at the time.

Thank you . It was great the last.... 15 years or so.

But it looks like we have to part ways here... 🤷

@grmpyprogrammer @heiglandreas You might want to check out by our friend @wez - cross platform, configurable (using lua for config), and Wez is highly unlikely to ever integrate AI features. 😁

I know people with estrogen have said their ADHD gets worse during perimenopause/menopause, but I'm wondering if people with testosterone 50+ also notice their Autism/ADHD symptoms getting worse. Especially more "inattentive"/stuck in their thoughts.

I feel like we really need more research on all of this.

@KitMuse @actuallyautistic @neurodiversity Not sure if mine have got worse, or if it's a side-effect of late diagnosis and being super-attuned to all the behaviors and symptoms as a result.

Hey PHP Folks, question for you!

Back in the early 2000s, I feel like there was two big PHP development methodologies.

The "Yahoo! System" where they did all their front end in PHP, and had a lot of built in extensions to handle their business logic.

The "Facebook System" that used PHP for everything.

Is anyone still using the Yahoo! system? Do they talk about it much?

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@preinheimer I talk to a lot of companies... and hardly any are building or maintaining custom extensions. Everyone is just using PHP, or, if the work cannot be done in PHP, calling out to web services in other languages to do that work.

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@preinheimer Any more, the language is almost never the bottleneck. And when it comes to migrating from a legacy system, if that legacy system has a database, that's usually the most expedient way to attack it (i.e., build a PHP app around that database). (This is the core of most app modernization, as those legacy systems are almost ALL database-centric anyways.)

@mwop I'm hearing rumblings in the Logseq community that Logseq has accepted funding and is moving towards databases, rather than working on the Logseq tool. Have you heard similar? Are you still a loyal Logseq user?

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@sarah Honestly, haven't been paying attention. So far, it still falls in the "just works" category for me. Thanks for the heads-up, though - will keep an eye on it.

Really don't want to have to migrate to something else; there's always a chunk of time while learning a new tool or migrating that feels like you're just spinning wheels, for no discernable gain. 🫤

Blogged a bit about ZendHQ, and how I'm priming queues, as well as some of the features I really appreciate as a user.

@Skoop It's a far better implementation, in part because it doesn't care what the endpoint is. If I wanted, I could even push to serverless ot web services in another language. But having them as PHP means I also get soooo much more. Let me know if you want to give it a spin!

I hate VPN!

It never worked out of the box for me. There are soooooo many moving parts.

Debugging is difficult.

And it's always the clients fault...

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@heiglandreas My favorite part of VPN is that there are standards for retrieving certificates, connecting, and authorizing, and yet Cisco continues its AnyConnect nonsense that always utterly fails to work with any standard VPN client.

Had somebody ask me to keep politics off the platform for a post I made today.

They're blocked.

If you ask people not to post political stuff, it means "don't post political stuff I don't agree with." And that's BS.

It was attitudes like this that made me mostly stop using social media for 4-5 years. I'd post something or retweet something, and get a barrage of folks sea-lioning or brigading me. For daring to have beliefs that were not theirs.

Ironically, they also got angry about "cancel culture".

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

At this point, I'm done with debates, and nobody is entitled to a debate. If you don't like my views (yes, I'm a socially progressive person, though hardly extremist; probably petit bourgeoisie best describes me), you don't have to follow me or engage.

I'm tired of having to mask in public. I'm not going to do it anymore.

Great read on how regressives stoke campus protests as a tactic to amplify their own policies and fuel rage against "liberalism" amongst their base, and how academic leadership falls for it again and again.

Lessons in city and school planning.

Our high schools don't use the school bus system, and rely on city buses. However, they've also reduced service. Most kids who ride have a large walk to a stop, and either have to get there absurdly early, or risk not enough space on the buses that get there on time.

And our city is now doing road construction on each of the major roads to the school, AND the one backup route coming from the south.

Talk about setting kids up for failure...

I’m only a few episodes into this season (3rd season) of #StarWars #TheBadBatch, and wow! It’s darker and with an ambiance/tone like #Andor. I like it.

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@ramsey I had watched ep 13 a few weeks ago and it ended on a huge cliff hanger, and, being ep 13, I got excited because I thought that meant another season!

Then my son told me Friday that the finale had aired.

I watched the last two episodes yesterday, and damn... All I'll say is, from mid-season 2 to the finale was some of the best SW storytelling I think we've had.

@heiglandreas Absolutely! My favorite part of that movie is when the sentient trees fight the wookiees for control of the Daleks. So moving!

What do you use for offsite backups for applications and databases?

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@sarah I have a recurring job that (a) runs pgdump, and then (b) uses logrotate to rotate backups and expire old archives. This runs on a mounted s3fuse volume, which gives me backup to, in my case, DO spaces.

mwop,
@mwop@phpc.social avatar

@willpower232 Yes, within a container, via elementary/s3-volume (https://github.com/elementar/docker-s3-volume).

@grmpyprogrammer INORITE?

I ended up brainstorming a "boring tech" talk with @auroraeosrose while at last week that I'm hoping to flesh out and pitch.
