Just made a new post this morning about CSS Variables!

And this afternoon I'm picking up a new kitten! There will be plenty of pictures being shared on Twitter!

I got great feedback here and had fun messing around with some PWA stuff as a small task on the side because I was curious.

Discussion was really helpful and interesting.

This thread was also a ton of fun!

I had a bad calf injury last November where I ended up putting on some weight, so I'm pretty stoked that I've dropped about 11 pounds in less than a month and more coming off. I've been eating better, sleeping more and been training like a mofo. πŸ’ͺ

Wow! Are you following any specific diet or just overall healthier foods?

Mainly eating less (not starving myself) and not really eating as many carbs. I haven't eaten any pasta in the past month and I'll only occasionally have bread if eating a sandwich. Mostly lots of fluids (water, tea), protein (chicken, tofu) and veggies/fruits. I also generally don't eat anything after 7pm.

I've always trained at the gym by myself but to kickstart things, I joined an Orange Theory. I didn't think I would like group sessions, but so far I like it and I'm not as jiggly now πŸ˜‰

I painted my apartment and finished all my stories for the current sprint before the weekend hit. Also I got news that Winds of Winter might be coming out before summer 2020 which I consider a massive personal win.

Published a GitHub repo to automate ES6 to ES5 processing with a detailed documentation which provides a ready to go configuration that is aimed to give the JavaScript developer the capability to quickly set up a Node.js environment and deliver ES5 from ES6 without wasting time in the maze of Babel configuration options and its plugins...

It gives out of the box the minimum settings to start a new project or evaluate any new ideas and it includes one HTML code base to fulfill this objective as well.

Check it out ! ES6 to ES5 transpilation with Babel.js and Node.js

Feedback appreciated ! ;)

I was trying to calculate unique pageviews for todayinclojure.com with a subquery

select
  count(ip_count) as visits,
  day
from (
  select
    count(ip) as ip_count,
    created_at - (created_at % 86400) as day
  from stat
  where
    created_at >= ?
  group by ip
  order by day desc
) as stat
group by day
order by day desc

but used distinct instead

select
  count(distinct ip) as visits,
  created_at - (created_at % 86400) as day
from stat
where
  created_at >= ?
group by day
order by day desc

and it worked.

No code? Try no scale.

My win this week was being able to think about layout with CSS position: relative and absolute and getting what I had in mind to actually happen without hours of trial and error.

Also learning about SVG scaling :D
