In-reply-to > Pike Matchbox! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mZBa3sqTrI Very interesting talk about plain text and encodings. I knew a bunch but alo learnt quite a lot of stuff. Highly recommended.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I remember watching this one too not long ago. What did you learn from this talk? πŸ€”

it became too noisy so we dropped it; where a reply only mentions l the original poster.

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).

Speaking of good error handling. Have you or your mates/colleagues thought much about good/best practices around this? Besides the fact that it’s a bit of an β€œart form” – So is good Unit Testing really and even designing good interfaces.

For example, how much context to provide? Should you always wrap the underlying error? Is it always useful to bubble errors up the stack? I’m not even sure myself, but one thing that does come to mind is to avoid repeating the same error as they bubble up the stack. I don’t know how to define this clearly though in a set of examples and best practices like Jessica Black has done so eloquently in her article (yet)

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Yeah completely agree on good error handling and messages. I think I’ve personally done a poor job on this with yarnd for example and probably ended up with logging and errors that were a bit too verbose and maybe too wrapped and redundant.

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? πŸ€”

In-reply-to > Running prologic/static on it will work nicely and consume very little in the way of resources πŸ˜… I use this for all my static site hosting needs πŸ˜‚

@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 β€œapp” that just did this, and ways to shove shit online easily.

@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? πŸ€” Got anything else to share along these lines? πŸ™

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! πŸ‘Œ Merged πŸ˜†

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 πŸ‘Œ I still have to think about this some more πŸ‘Œ

@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? πŸ™

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! πŸ‘Œ
