  • 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 DEV.to 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 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:

I was excited to have started a new front-end developer role! Speaking of which, do you know a polite way to say β€œno” 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!

I reached out to Google's disability assistance group to find a way to address my mental health and knowledge/skill challenges. I've dabbled since my Commodore, and I want to keep my fond memories near in my day to day, while being able to help address current and future needs of the Users of our future. There is something very fulfilling in that for me.
