Hello new folks! 👋 Since everyone is doing it, I'll post another #introduction. I am relatively new to Mastodon myself, but I've found a community here that is welcoming, tolerant and friendly. Hope you'll have the same experience.
I regularly look through the #introductions tag for new people with similar interests, but if I miss you, give me a follow or send me a message, and I'll follow you back. 🙂
I have a tenuous relationship with most static analysis tools, but I really like shellcheck. Bash has so many gotchas, its nice having a tool that remembers all the esoteric constructs for me, because heaven knows I won't.
This excerpt from Lisa Brennan-Jobs new book is haunting. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/08/lisa-brennan-jobs-small-fry-steve-jobs-daughter

Jesus Christ, poor kid 😥
Not to count my chickens before they 🐣, but I think I /may/ have avoided financial ruin today! Hopefully I can get some 💤 tonight for the first time this week.
Just received a password reset request from my domain registrar which I didn't initiate. 😶
"SIM swapping, the gaping hole in cellphone security"
Had a moment of panic when I couldn't remember the password I used to encrypt my phone backup in iTunes. Turns out it was a randomly-generated one that I saved in 1Password 2 years ago. Thanks past self!
Also: "I hate how loud this MacBook Pro keyboard is!" is a sentence that no human has ever uttered. But, congrats on making it quieter, I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Even if Apple fixed the dust issue in the newest MBP (they are explicitly saying they didn't because there is no dust problem, silly 🙄), I still don't want a "butterfly" keyboard. I'm not even particularly fond of key travel; I *hate* mechanical keyboards. However, there needs to be *some* travel. It is so sad to me that Apple has ruined what IMO was the best keyboard on any notebook computer ever.
Handed my iPhone in today to have it's battery replaced and now that I've been without it for a few hours, I've already noticed how dependent I am on it. This week is going to be interesting 😬

Twitter’s API changes are putting the final nail in the coffin of third-party apps.
Also, from experience, Turbolinks works great with Elixir's Phoenix framework. And Stimulus should too, in theory.
The few times I've tried to write single-page apps, it has always been a huge PITA. This post does a great job of advocating for the traditional server-side rendering approach instead and augmenting your server-side logic with bits of JS here and there to improve user experience, which IMO in the right technique for most web apps. #webdev
I don't know what they are selling here, but this is a really interesting perspective on how the blog may be (partially?) responsible for the death of the weird web that we so often lament.
Firefox and Chrome have removed Stylish from their add-on sites. I am pleasantly surprised that this happened so quickly.
Someone stole a SIM card from a dead bird's tracking device and racked up almost $2,700 in charges. I don't know whether to disgusted or amazed at their ingenuity.
Does someone know what the deal is with counter.social? Do they not federate with the rest of the fediverse?
