In-reply-to » This is a weird request, but does anyone have something for me to encode with FFmpeg? The more complicated the project, the better. I am trying to improve my skills and I learn best with real-world use.

@mckinley@twtxt.net Hmmm not sure how I can help then? Whay about improving yarnd’s video support and transcoding? 🤔

In-reply-to » Running prologic/static on it will work nicely and consume very little in the way of resources 😅 I use this for all my static site hosting needs 😂

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net Yeah it’s actually something I want to build something around too. Something a bit like what Github Pages does. I self-host Gitea but it has no support for this. It’s relatively easy to do yourself, but it would be nice if there was an “app” that just did this, and ways to shove shit online easily.

In-reply-to » I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😢 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I found this article last night as I was trying to get to sleep (still not feeling 100%, sinuses still playing up 😢):

Best Practices for Testing in Go - FOSSA

Some good tips here in by a Jessica Black. I think I mostly agree with.

What do you think? 🤔 Got anything else to share along these lines? 🙏

In-reply-to » The US put tornadocash on sanction list. Deleted github accounts and source. Since North Korea used it to launder stolen crypto. And people are surprised that it happened? Github is and never have been a safe place to store code. Tor/i2p is much more safer places to host code. But I understand why people use github, I do so as well for public project, but I also selfhost my other things

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Thanks! 👌 Merged 😆

In-reply-to » So, @prologic, I feel like I should convince you that your self-hosting solution you build should use containerized documents (Sandstorm calls them "grains" for kind of good reasons, but documents is usually applicable). This would have twofold benefits: 1. Your platform would be more secure/better. 2. Apps you build for it would probably be reasonably straightforward to also run on Sandstorm.

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net Fair enough 👌 I still have to think about this some more 👌

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Can you chuck that up on our Wiki or create a PR and add it somewhere to like I dunno contrib or deployment? 🙏

In-reply-to » Kids are in bed, dog is sleeping, Marlyn is watching Tv, and I'm on the computer trying to figure out what to do for the rest of the night. Last week of vacation now, so I get more and more interrested in doing things on the computer. Played around a bit with my Risc-v SBC today (Mangopi), it runs debian, got everything updated and all that, thinking about setting up a webserver on it. It has 512mb ram, so it should be fine to host some static website on it.

@stigatle@twtxt.net Cool! 👌

Got a pic of it to share? 🤔

Hmmm interesting model I can see the benefits here for sure for a certain set of use-cases.

I’m also worried about the “lack of unit tests” feedback too, because I am reminded of TDD When did it all go wrong – Where you see so many engineers do “unit tests” wrong 🤦‍♂️ – If you don’t have time to watch this (rather long) video, TL;DR:

Unit tests test the behaviour of the system, or the API boundaries. Unit tests should not test any implementation details. They should let you refactor the implementation.

This was the original intent behind Unit Tests and AFAIK still is.

I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😢 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

Got the results of my take-home today and whilst there was some good feedback, man the criticisms of my work were harsh. I’m strictly not allowed to share the work I did for this take-home test, and I really can only agree with the “no unit tests” piece of the feedback, I could have done better there, but I was time pressured, sick and ran out of steam. I was using a lot of libraires to do the work so in the end found it difficult to actually think about a proper set of “Unit Tests”. I did write one (in shell) but I guess it wasn’t seen?

The other points were on my report and future work. Not detailed enough I guess? Hmmm 🤔

Am I really this bad? Does my code suck? 🤔 Have I completely lost touch with software engineering? 🤦‍♂️

In-reply-to » @prologic I found the Atom feed, but I'm worried it might be too noisy, I don't want to overwhelm my feed reader too much. Hmm...

14:00:00	07:00:00	10:00:00	14:00:00	16:00:00	19:30:00	00:00:00

Looks good to me 😅

I never get the whole English expression of “moving something back an hour” or “Moving something forward an hour” it makes no logical sense to me the way people say it 😂

In-reply-to » Stumbled on WebID today. Besides being confusing, it doesn't work on the site I tinkered with and it seems to be mostly abandoned?

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I think so. IndieAuth is what I’m a big fan of. All Yarn pods are IndieAuth providers for example (if there are any concumsers out there, we have to work on a consumer ourselves…)

Hehe 😂 Current version Git SHA 45.77.39.149 of GoNix boots up okay in Vultr which is good 😅 But I’m missing a few things, and I’m not sure if networking came up 😂

Need to build equivalents for:

  • ip addr show or ifconfig
  • ping

At the very least 😂
