Saw a Jack Russell terrier/beagle mix dog on the bus. So cute!

#job search

airtable.com is the first company I was dealing with who actually offered to compensate me for the time I spent doing their take-home assignment. It was a $200 Amazon gift card!

Pet peeve: animated GIFs on slides in work presentations.

Motion on screen just captures my attention. I’m going to have a hard time reading the text and listening to you while it’s on-screen.

Also, they’re never as funny as people think.

@rmrenner if you’re still on the first island … it ended up taking longer than I expected. But was fun. It seems really big and I’m all for having an enjoyable time sink. 😊

@Sparky DQB1 was maybe my favorite game that year. Looking forward to playing 2. πŸ˜€

Today was one of those work days where the stack of things to do just gets longer throughout the day and then you’re out of fucks to give and it’s time to go home.

But, yay! Weekend! Going to be playing a lot of #DragonQuestBuilders2

@rmrenner Wasn’t that a couple days ago? A+ SDV tweets. Why the regret, though? It’s a fun game! Until the tedium sets in.

Somehow the repo I work with at work has been altered such that unit tests now fail to complete in a reasonable time. (i.e. before I lose my patience.)

Looking in the bright side: yay, a chance to learn `got bisect`.

Only, it operates at the level of commits, not PRs, and our team regularly makes interim commits that don’t necessarily pass tests yet. So manual bisecting it is. *chairspin*

Yeah, sure is weird. Also weird how the centrists are silent about the fascists murdering people.

@eurasierboy Hello! ❀️ Amaroq, but when I hit the button to upload a photo it crashes back to iOS. Known issue? If not, can I do anything to help debug? Thanks!

Playing with #actix-web again. #Rust is fun and Actix-Web 1.0 is cool but I just ran into the fact that the only "Session" store that's implemented stores the session values directly into a browser's cookies. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

PokΓ©monθͺž – a game about learning PokΓ©mon languages so that you talk to them about the weather and snacks and stuff. … And what moves they should use during battle.

Each PokΓ©mon family could have a different language or dialect to learn.

I’d play that.

please put what you did in your commit messages

not an inside joke
not a reference to a private discussion
not a sarcastic reference to something that requires a lot of background to understand you're just kidding
not something grandiose to be cute over something that's super minor

or if you do, still just put it clearly at the end

thank,

@isagalaev haha. Is it that bad? I grew up with it so I find it simple. Though I had to admit I was fuzzy on the rules about foul balls vs. strikes.

Sometimes I forget the cultural differences between Iceland and the U.S. Yesterday I was reminded of one as I had to explain the basic rules of baseball to my husband.

β€œWhy didn’t he swing?” lead to discussion of strikes, balls, and some basic game theory.

@pizza_pal yep. But in my use case, I was just building a list by appending to the end of it, then later iterating through those items.

avatar

Cody Casterline πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ NfNitLoop@mastodon.social

Ok whew. So now that I iterate them fairly, LinkedList does perform quite a lot better (20ms vs ~200ms) if you're inserting 1m rows.

But, if you up the size to 10m rows the performance reverses and LinkedList takes 5.3-8.7s, while ArrayList is still down around .29-.82s.

But I was dealing of lists around 10k. Once. During a unit test. So all of this is really below the threshold of caring about performance IMO. :p

Cody Casterline πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ NfNitLoop@mastodon.social

Oh duh, I'm an idiot. LinkdList.get(i) is unfair. I should iterate over it. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

avatar

Cody Casterline πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ NfNitLoop@mastodon.social

Someone at work told me to use a #Java LinkedList (instead of ArrayList) because appending to it was faster.

I was 99% sure this was wrong. But I wrote a test when I got home and ... these numbers seem a lot further apart than I expected. I even decompiled the .class file to make sure it wasn't optimizing out the ArrayList, but it's not!

3rd Ave. in downtown #Seattle is somewhat impressive at rush hour. Lots of bus stops along the street. Busses weaving in and out of each other, lining up at their stops. It feels a bit like a big outdoor subway station. 🚌 🚎

Cody Casterline πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ NfNitLoop@mastodon.social

I’m on a chair in the bendy part of an extra long bus. The motion is making me mildly nauseous, but it has the benefit of being a bucket seat with no sweaty strangers within touching distance.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is…

Weird flex 🀒, but ok πŸ‘πŸΌ.

Oops. Apparently I never backed this up off of my work laptop. I want to try actix-web again and was looking for it.

I suppose if I did it at a work hackathon technically it was a work for hire, so I shouldn't have it any way.

Oh well, thankfully I enjoy (re)learning things. :)

Had a #dream this morning that I went back to hang out in my old high school band hall. Somehow it ended up not being creepy. And I ran into other people who were in marching band when I was there. It was like a high school reunion, but just for the band nerds.

Woke up with a nice feeling of nostalgia.

Also: it’s BRIGHT out. Seattle, it’s 6:30am. It’s too early for all this sun!

Peak 2019 is a #Google robocaller calling the elevator I’m riding in to verify it as a business.

So I, a captive audience, get to listen to a spiel about the benefits of verifying and the dire consequences of not pressing 1.

A helpful chart to help folks w/ its vs. it's. It follows the same pattern as he/she.

I seem to be seeing a lot of mixups on this online lately. I wonder if it's due to auto-(mis)correct.

Bought a #Nintendo #Switch about a year ago. Have really enjoyed it. But now the left analog stick has started drifting which makes it nearly unplayable.

It seems to be a common issue, but I can't find any news of Nintendo offering to replace them, or addressing the issue with an update to the construction of the Joycons.

That makes me not want to invest in the platform. My PS4 controllers, OTOH, are cheaper, older, and still perform better.
