I bet y'all have all sorts of stories here. What's your biggest oops/messup? We're talking about it over in http://npm.community -> https://npm.community/t/what-is-your-biggest-or-funniest-oops-moment-as-a-developer/4749?u=fharper
Health, lungs Show more
My doctor continues to be puzzled by what's going on, so I have a referral to a pulmonologist -- who can't see me until the end of May. I'm getting some walking in, which I badly needed, but it sucks to have to stick to flat/downhill options. I have strong feelings about chronic illness and the lack of medical support that allows things to continue. It's frustrating.

I'm already having decision fatigue about meals. I picked my Airbnb this time for the bathtub but next time I might have to look for a full kitchen. But maybe I'll have more default preferences by then? Most of the recommendations I've gotten involve a bit of travel.
Houses, health, and “vacation” Show more
I had the idea that I’d spend the end of the year with some fun downtime, but instead I got to buy new kitchen fixtures to replace things that failed, schedule contractors, have some medical tests, and still not know why my lungs aren’t working. At least I could stay home and sleep?

What does a package manager from the future looks like to you? What do you have to do constantly that you with your package manager or local-run runtime would take care of you? Typescript? wasm? 🤔

New #MurderBot short story in Wired! It's a prequel, so if you've never read a MurderBot story, this is a great place to start.
sick of being sick Show more
I just want to breathe, damnit. It's like being trapped in that part at the end of the flu where your lungs aren't back to normal yet. I was doing a little better for a couple of days but now I'm tapering off the steroid so I have side-effects and not much else. I went outside for the first time in a couple of days and ran out of air trying to talk and walk at the same time.
For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.
Those of us who write little-known software may go for months without hearing from a user, and it can be a little de-motivating.
Hearing from someone who actually uses one's software gives an energising jolt that can carry one through several weeks of darkness and cold and wet.
still sick (and meds) Show more
Having ruled out mono and some other infectious possibilities, we're now trying a steroid pack which I've been warned will make me 'cranky, hungry, and bad around people'. Cheers! But if I can wake up tomorrow without my lungs burning, that would be stellar.
