[00:08:54] eam: one of the things I like least about android are all the damn advertising related popups
[00:20:26] miah: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.paidtasks&hl=en
[09:38:23] apeiros: lovely how oracle's regexp_replace can't handle \n, nor \xHH, nor any other sensible thing
[15:54:37] aScottishBoat: why not a stout? Stout with eggs, toast, sausages, that's a great breakfast, too
[18:28:25] guacamole: i'm attempting to put together a quick talk about code reviewing - does anyone have any techniques or tips (from what to look for when reviewing to ways of communicating feedback or anything else) that have been particularly successful or helpful? I'd love to include them and share with some of the local LA ruby community
[18:30:36] havenwood: guacamole: I was talking with baweaver the other day about adjusting the level of review based on the quality of the code.
[18:31:28] havenwood: I paraphrase, but he suggested you move a D to a C or a B to an A. If you have a D, it's demoralizing to put the D-C, C-B, and B-A review in all at once.
[18:32:14] havenwood: I'll sometimes start a follow-up style review issue for a PR that has already suffered enough.
[18:33:13] havenwood: Like if I tell you the architecture is wrong and needs to be redone, don't pile on whitespace nits.
[18:33:38] havenwood: guacamole: It's a balancing act because you want the code to ultimately get polished.
[18:35:12] havenwood: guacamole: I think having linters is a big win for moving much of that out of the review process. You just demand linters passed before PR.
[18:35:34] havenwood: I was glad to see Elixir fmt in 1.6. It's nice to not have to debate the shed color.
[18:39:04] guacamole: i understand, i was planning on doing an "automation" slide to talk about how to be able to focus on bigger problems than style guide things
[21:46:47] apeiros__: weeeell, I guess I should have cared about my DO droplets earlier. I'm still paying for 3 droplets I don't even use anymore. for like 2 years.
[21:52:43] havenwood: yeah, i got burned when i first started using DO because i didn't realize i was still billed with the instance spun down
[21:53:55] havenwood: It gets you started with a configured firewall, letsencrypt and rails already configured with nginx.
[22:37:29] havenwood: apeiros: nope! certbot lets you do manual rather than automagical mode for odd setups
[22:38:06] havenwood: the only downside i can think of is the 3-mo maximum cert duration (i think that's a thing - if it's not i haven't looked hard enough how to get around it)
[22:58:38] apeiros: hm, htop says "Uptime: 562 days(!)". wonder what it wants to tell me with that exclamation mark 0:-)
