If anyone ever makes an Icelandic Taskmaster, then I'll be first in line to audition as the host.

I just saw a video where they refer to music artists from 2009 as "old school" and I can't anymore and I'm going to bed.

Dear Video Player programmers.

Skipping forwards on a video that auto-played does not mean you should un-mute it and set the volume to max.

Yours, Ears In Pain.

Eruption started again in Iceland near Grindavík.
Please be careful if you're traveling and listen to all warnings and travel suggestions. (https://www.almannavarnir.is/english/)

If you would quiz me on what year Queen Elizabeth died, I would confidently and without hesitation say 2023 and I would also be wrong.

It's estimated that at 16:00 CET, the OPS-SAT satellite will re-enter the atmosphere.

Thank you for all the hard work. At least you had some fun playing DOOM.

Here's a live feed and simulation based on the telemetry. It's very pretty to watch.

I've open sourced my simple rust sudoku game. It's not great code and there are some tests missing, but enjoy.

Browser Cookies are sometimes called "Footprints" in Icelandic (Fótspor) and I think that's a much better term.

Anytime English speakers talk about the Nordics having long weird words, I remind them of the word "Defenestration" (the act of throwing someone out of a window)

@marta ok ok but technically half of English is from latin.

I love people that are passionate about their interests, no matter how niche it is. They always have fun stories to tell.

An icebreaker I do at programming conferences is the question "Tell me about "that bug" you fixed" and even the shyest people will light up and tell you a great story.

I wonder if the usage of words like "some, most, usually" spiked after the internet came along. To generalize what you're writing to avoid "um, actually" commenters trying to nail you on a technicality.

I am back to editing this document.

One of the weird things about writing a book called Bea Wolf is you discover the "Be a wolf" hashtag which appears to be a lot of large shaven men posting photos of themselves to each other?

@ZachWeinersmith but no Wolf Bees?

i wish “type checking for infrastructure” was a thing

my code declares that there should be a S3 bucket that’s different from that other S3 bucket, etc. —> spin up the type checker, it reads APIs and verifies, “yep, this code should run fine”

@olafurw@mastodon.social avatar

@kellogh CDK but that would basically just be you writing code to check, not type checking.
