My wife stayed up to listen to the first release, then came to bed before the second set released. It’s bow 5am and I’m debating whether or not to wake her up…

No one seems to have said it yet, but consistency. Waking up at the same time every day including weekends. Eventually, you just wake up early naturally. I get up at 5:30 am every day on the dot with zero alarm just because it’s when I wake up. And I’m never groggy, because I’ve adapted to it. It’s not early anymore it’s just when I wake up

I think the second half to this is that it can’t be a chore. You have to want to wake up. If you wake up and think about how much you hate being awake it will be all the harder

Between 9 and 10pm most nights

Winter is the same, although it can be noticeably more difficult to recover if your pattern gets disrupted for any reason. So for that I use a light that simulates sunrise

In the spirit of these kinds of changes, I’d love to hear some honest Linux distribution recommendations. I’m leaning towards Ubuntu because it is the most widely advertised and UX focused from my perspective. But I’ve also heard good things about Arch. Any others I should be considering?

I’ll probably not go full Linux any time soon - I want at least one Windows OS to play games on - so whatever option it should be dual-boot friendly.

Seems like the general consensus in this section is Mint, so I’ll give that a look over for sure

Sorry, forgot to specify in the post. But I’m looking for a desktop replacement. We thankfully don’t use Windows Server anywhere at the moment.

Most people recommended Mint so far. What sorts of things do you like about Fedora?

This reminds me of a question I have about the whole Monica Lewinsky scandal. Obviously, he was in a position of power and shouldn’t have had relations with an intern. But it does beg the question: can any American citizen fully consent to relationships with the active president?

The issue is power and influence, but even the president’s wife is subject to a certain level of his presidential authority. So where’s the line? When is it “okay” in the eyes of the power dynamic.

Most people are probably reasonable enough to say that his wife, of course, can consent. But it still does make me ponder, and there’s an invisible line in the sand somewhere for most people

In vernacular English, begging the question (or equivalent rephrasing thereof) sometimes occurs in place of “raises the question”, “invites the question”, “suggests the question”, “leaves unanswered the question” etc

Opinions needed: Best way to develop NuGet packages

My favorite way to develop applications is microservices, or at least smaller services that can separate concerns a little bit. In our current application, there is an API we’ve created with an OAS document and an auto-generated .NET SDK based on the document. We then have a web console that makes calls to the backend API...

@notnotmike@programming.dev avatar

I mention in the post, but we do make the Nuget package publicly available, so it’s got to be used.

I also feel that if a streamlined process were in place it would be a very popular way to develop mocroservices

notnotmike,

I don’t think misusing is the correct term, just expecting too much out of it. We’re attaching it properly as the build metadata, just wishing it were able to be used when determining package versions.

I will likely start using the - format for prerelease versions, but I may not choose the commit SHA as the identifier. I think I’d prefer an incrementing ID that’s a little more descriptive of what order builds occurred in. I think something like the GitLab IID may suffice, but I’ll have to dive deeper and see my best options

Thanks

One example comes to mind where I almost did.

I used to drive an older Pontiac. It wasn’t the fanciest car, so it wasn’t the most performant.

One day, I was leaving a restaurant with a girl I was dating, and had to merge into traffic up a hill. I knew the car would need all the power it could get to do the merge safely, so I turned off the air-conditioning. Confused, the girl asked why I did that. I explained that air conditioning affects the performance of the car. She disagreed. She was raised a bit privileged and had only ever driven nice cars, so never noticed the performance hit of having the A/C on.

We bickered back and forth for a minute or two before I said “okay look I’ll show you” and reached to turn off the A/C. Before I could, however, she hit me with “you know, you don’t always have to be right”. I didn’t end up getting to prove it to her.

In her defense, I can be very stubborn when its something I am confident I’m correct in, and we actually argued a lot about stuff. Another example of an argument we had was over the fact that prairie dogs can carry the plague. She didn’t believe me and I remember we had to look up the answer. And that was on our second date.

I think about that line she hit me with a lot. But I also realize that in a lot of our “arguments” I was still having fun. To me, there’s a playful aspect to a good argument. As long as nobody is yelling or getting feelings hurt, it’s a fun way to pass the time. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize she wasn’t having fun like I was.

I downloaded an emulator and have been playing Digimon World 2. It’s a game I used to play as a wee lad and never even came close to beating.

Now it’s like the end credits of Step Brothers. I’m here to kick its ass on the playground.

notnotmike,
@notnotmike@programming.dev avatar

That sounds like the very first game, which was more like a raising digimon game. You had to like run your digimon on a treadmill or something to get its stats up. I was actually going to potentially play that one next!

notnotmike,
@notnotmike@programming.dev avatar

Yes, but I had rented it at Blockbuster and so I didn’t get anywhere close to beating it! But I remember liking it so I was going to try it after I beat the second game

Unciv is a Civ 5 remake with simplified graphics. Its a lot of fun but the AI is brutal.

How do you know the image isn’t flipped?

notnotmike,
@notnotmike@programming.dev avatar

My guess is that it has something to do with the image where you can clearly see a tag? But I can’t read what it says

I think you’d have better luck with the “corporate wants you to find the difference between these two pictures” one instead

Seems like we’re outliers here 😄 I keep it for those acquaintances who aren’t important enough to merit texting directly, but still might want to message me on messenger every now and again. Check in with it once every couple of months and see if anyone messaged me, scroll through the feed, get annoyed at all the “memes” and then exit.

There’s a new extremely annoying trend where a post at a “local” company says “hey we need to offload this expensive item, type @highlight in the chat to enter” which ends up pinging your entire friends list. Very annoying, super scummy.

Cecily Smith by Will Connolly is just some bonus track from a musical I’ve never seen or heard but every time I hear it I almost weep.

I love my wife very much and the core concept of “life isn’t about the things that we do it’s who we are doing them with” is a core ethos to my life, so the song is personally very relatable.

That’s what I was thinking.

The fan in the thumbnail (and the one he tries in the video) fails because the fan’s intake is pulling the fan away from the sail (like an airplane propeller). However, I wonder if you redirected that intake to the front of the boat while directing the output to the sail, could you get more thrust? The fan’s intake and output would then be working together.

Also the leaf blower could work in theory but I think there’s too much friction for the leaf blower to overcome. If it did have enough to push you, then you’d also be pushed sideways by the blower’s output as well

The video explores other questions as well, not just the fan question.

People enjoy thinking about things, rather than rote memorization, so a video that makes physics understandable and fun for people who aren’t masters in physics isn’t so bad.

Lighten up a bit. Learning is never bad.
