  • found out I had broken into the top 5 for all time for the accessibility tag on StackOverflow (something I have been working on for a couple of years so that was a nice surprise)
  • 50k views on is a nice little milestone considering I have been posting less than 3 months, looking forward to 100k!
  • rearranged my office so I can finally get my gym stuff in the house instead of the garage! No more excuses for COVID curves!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I published on Dev for the first time in a long time, and I have another post in the works that is short but I'm very proud of it. I wrote my first code pen for it!
Here's my new post:

I added stack traces and debugging instructions, also received and made a few PRs.
But I guess the biggest win is gwion beating luajit (interpreter mode) on the method-call benchmark, by what I think is a fair margin.

looks like I can't the benchmark to show.
here it is:

Gwion is growing, that's amazing. I always want to learn more
about it... But I have no time! 😭 But when I'm done with university,iI'm definitely going to spend some time with it.

I was excited to have started a new front-end developer role! Speaking of which, do you know a polite way to say “no” to a client if they offer me a new project, which I’d no longer have time for? I can’t take on a new developer role and do freelance work at the same time. I searched all over the Internet for solutions, but nothing matches what I have in mind. Help would be appreciated!

  • Partially adjusted our Bastille templates so they can be used to set up both the dev boxes and the soon-to-be live server :)
  • Set up TimescaleDB, pg_cron, and started moving some logic into SQL, learned quite a bit new things about SQL in the process :)
