we don’t get fail whales here we get errorphants
Wow! Bundler just merged a PR switching it's version resolution algorithm to PubGrub, which should make "bundle update" faster and have better error messages https://github.com/rubygems/rubygems/pull/5960 🧵
we got #fennel conf 2022 happening tomorrow! got a great lineup of talks if you're interested in our weird little lisp language.
Someone managed to wipe $16 billion off of Eli Lilly's valuation by paying $8 to verify a parody account, then tweeting that they're making insulin free
Well, this will be a nice little litmus test....assuming we still need a litmus test next month.
I know that @darius is a nice and generous guy, but he really ought to have a "don't feel too guilty about the fact that you keep leaning on him for fediverse advice" tier on his Patreon, which you can find at https://www.patreon.com/tinysubversions

Jobs should have a New Game+.

By way of #introduction I'll share one of my #projects (h/t @simon) reclaiming and giving away discarded (and mostly new) Uber JUMP e-bikes. Tens of thousands of them got sent to a scrap metal processor near my house. I wanted one for myself and ended up with several tractor trailer loads! They work great but I had to design a new bike computer to replace the proprietary integration points with Uber's app. The new model has an app too, but interfaces via BLE rather than LTE.
