It would be nice if I were able to organize my repos into "folders" on GitHub. All the projects I've done for freeCodeCamp in one; the ones for my bootcamp in another; the ones for X here, etc.
Barring that, I've started transferring repos to different Organizations with names like CharmedSatyr-freeCodeCamp. Is that the best way to go? I think it gives the wrong impression. It's still just me, and that isn't a real org... 🤷♂️
If this morning is any indication, the real difficulty with implementing OAuth using Auth0 is that you have to correctly copy your CLIENT SECRET from their website and correctly paste it into your application environment. Just copy/pasting a portion of it or a random string you don’t recognize any more won’t cut it. 💕
The new #RaspberryPi 4 makes a very usable #Nextcloud server for home users. We'd recommend the 2GB or 4GB ram version, though.
Why is it that when I set a rule for myself ("Don't do X!"), some part of me takes great pleasure in rebelling and doing X immediately? It makes it so hard to be good.
It works better if I say "Do more Y!" instead, hoping to get the intended side effect. E.g., not "No more croissants!" but "Eat more vegetables!", hoping I will be satiated after eating a large bowl of peas and won't want any croissants.
However, the best, trickiest indirect goals can be difficult to determine and phrase.
Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.
Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).
