    1. The nice thing about notes, unlike to-dos, is that they aren’turgent. If one important to-do gets overlooked, the results could becatastrophic. Notes, on the other hand, can easily be put on hold anytime you get busy, without any negative impact.

      Nice that he differentiates specifically between notes and to-do items.

    1. Second, we shape the work before giving it to a team. A small senior group works in parallel to the cycle teams. They define the key elements of a solution before we consider a project ready to bet on. Projects are defined at the right level of abstraction: concrete enough that the teams know what to do, yet abstract enough that they have room to work out the interesting details themselves.

    1. build a browser that comes pre-installed with node.js

      Nah. Just stop programming directly against NodeJS to start with!

      The Web platform is a multi-vendor standardized effort involving broad agreement to implement a set of common interfaces. NodeJS is a single implementation of a set of APIs that seemed good (to the NodeJS developers) at the time, and that could change whenever the NodeJS project decides it makes sense to.

      (Projects like WebRun which try to provide a shim to let people continue to program against NodeJS's APIs but run the result in the browser is a fool's errand. Incredibly tempting, but definitely the wrong way to go about tackling the problem.)

    1. Zeigarnik effect: Open tasks tend to occupy our short-term memory –until they are done. That is why we get so easily distracted bythoughts of unfinished tasks, regardless of their importance. Butthanks to Zeigarnik’s follow-up research, we also know that we don’tactually have to finish tasks to convince our brains to stop thinkingabout them. All we have to do is to write them down in a way thatconvinces us that it will be taken care of.

      The Zeigarnik effect is the idea that open or pending tasks tend to occupy our short-term memory until they are done or our brain is otherwise convinced that they're "finished". This is why note taking can be valuable. By writing down small things, we can free up our short-term or working memories to focus or work on other potentially more important tasks. It is named for Soviet psychologist Bluma Zeigarnik.

      The Zeigarnik effect is some of the value behind David Allen's "Getting Things Done" system. Writing down to do lists tricks our mind into freeing up space from things we need to take care of. If they're really important, we've got a list and can then take care of them. Meanwhile our working memories are freed up for other tasks.

    2. A good structure is something you can trust. It relieves you fromthe burden of remembering and keeping track of everything. If youcan trust the system, you can let go of the attempt to hold everythingtogether in your head and you can start focusing on what isimportant:

      Whether it's for writing, to do lists, or other productivity spaces, a well designed system is something that one can put their absolute trust into. This allows one to free themselves from the burden of tracking and dealing with minutiae so they can get serious work done.

    1. The strengths, resources, and strategies that HBCC providers use to support children and families in their care. Many studies include HBCC providers across diverse community contexts and racial, ethnic, and linguistic groups. However, fewer studies look within groups to unpack how community context or the intersection of community, race, and language may shape experiences, resources, and strategies. For example, although many studies have included HBCC providers of color, few studies have addressed the specific experiences of Black women who offer HBCC and the strategies they use to support racial healing amid systemic inequities. Some older research looked at the experiences of FFN providers who were recent immigrants or refugees, as well as those from Indigenous communities (Emarita 2008), yet more research is needed to understand the experiences of these providers and the children and families they support

      THIS - we want to do THIS; hard to do this in a large data set, but we can look for resources and strengths; we can look for profiles - combinations of factors that together mean more than individual factors alone (e.g., education despite poverty; having a support network). We need to identify the questions in the NSECE that asked about these and then look for differences in who offers what services and for whom

    2. examine the relationship of providers’ personal and professional characteristics to potential predictors of HBCC quality, including a provider’s flexibility to meet a family’s needs for nontraditional hour and affordable care, or a provider’s use of different learning activities

      We can look at this

    3. Descriptive comparisons of the data can reveal changes in selected characteristics of both providers and their settings, illuminating differences in the cultural, racial, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds of providers, as well as in their payment sources, if any; the number and ages of the children in care; whether children with disabilities are served; the child care schedule; and participation in ECE systems

      We can look at this

    1. Instead of render props, we use Svelte's slot props: // React version <Listbox.Button> {({open, disabled} => /* Something using open and disabled */)} </Listbox.Button> <!--- Svelte version ---> <ListboxButton let:open let:disabled> <!--- Something using open and disabled ---> </ListboxButton>
    1. What an awesome little site. Sadly no RSS to make it easy to follow, so bookmarking here.

      I like that she's titled her posts feed as a "notebook": https://telepathics.xyz/notebook. There's not enough content here (yet) to make a determination that they're using it as a commonplace book though.

      Someone in the IndieWeb chat pointed out an awesome implementation of "stories" she's got on her personal site: https://telepathics.xyz/notes/2020/new-york-city-friends-food-sights/

      I particularly also like the layout and presentation of her Social Media Links page which has tags for the types of content as well as indicators for which are no longer active.

      This makes me wonder if I could use tags on some of my links to provide CSS styling on them to do the same thing for inactive services?

    1. https://web.archive.org/web/20081030052305/http://www.solutionwatch.com/368/fifty-ways-to-take-notes/

      Mostly an historical list of online tools for note taking.

      No discussion of actual functionality or usefulness. Sounds more like for making to do lists and passing notes rather than long term knowledge management and upkeep. Nothing about the benefits of centralizing data in one place.

    1. emilianoeheyns September 27, 2021 I didn't account for spaces in the key field; the current version of BBT would have picked up keys without spaces like [extra=ADSBibcode], the next version of BBT will also support [extra=ADS\ Bibcode]

      plugin BBT;

    2. jspilker September 22, 2021 Thanks so much for this, very much appreciated!If any astros from the future find this thread, you can use Better Bibtex to swipe the ADS Bibcode from the Extra field and use that as your cite key. This assumes that the format in the Extra field remains as "ADS Bibcode: xxxxxx", but you can also alter it if things change in the future. Go to Zotero -> Preferences -> Better Bibtex -> Citation keys (tab), and in the Citation key format box, enter:[Extra:transliterate:select=3] | [auth:lower:alphanum][shortyear]To break that down:- the [Extra:transliterate:select=3] part will search the Extra field, remove any unsafe characters ('transliterate'), and return all words starting with the 3rd. This removes the first two words, "ADS Bibcode:", from the full string so only the bibcode itself is used for the citekey.- In case there is no text in the Extra field, the cite key will revert by default to lastnameYY, which is what the [auth:lower:alphanum][shortyear] produces.

    1. Library Catalog The catalog or database an item was imported from. This field is used, for example, in the MLA citation style. Uses of this field are broader than actual library catalogs. Call Number The call number of an item in a library. For citing archival sources, also include the Call Number in Loc. in Archive (if applicable).

      Entender utilidad

    2. Archive Mainly for archival resources, the archive where an item was found. Also used for repositories, such as government report databases, institutional repositories, or subject repositories. Loc. in Archive The location of an item in an archive, such as a box and folder number or other relevant location information from the finding aid. Include the subcollection/call number, box number, and folder number together in this field. For additional tips on citing archival sources in Zotero, see here.

The full, long version is one minute longer than the Making the Video version, while the cut version omits the scenes in which she leaves the airport and is sleepy and in which she fills out the questionnaire. The short version begins with Stefani practicing on the piano and her finding the watch just seconds after that.

    1. Always use the word ‘Africa’ or ‘Darkness’ or ‘Safari’ in your title.

      I love the style in which this is written. While it appears to be a "how-to" guide, the author is doing nothing more than addressing the stereotypes that surround Africa. Turning this piece into a " how NOT to " guide.

    1. Now consider we want to handle numbers in our known value set: const KNOWN_VALUES = Object.freeze(['a', 'b', 'c', 1, 2, 3]) function isKnownValue(input?: string | number) { return typeof(input) === 'string' && KNOWN_VALUES.includes(input) } Uh oh! This TypeScript compiles without errors, but it's not correct. Where as our original "naive" approach would have worked just fine. Why is that? Where is the breakdown here? It's because TypeScript's type system got in the way of the developer's initial intent. It caused us to change our code from what we intended to what it allowed. It was never the developer's intention to check that input was a string and a known value; the developer simply wanted to check whether input was a known value - but wasn't permitted to do so.
    1. I'm going to need some significant time delving into and mining this treasure trove of references.

    1. "Many North American music education programs exclude in vast numbers students who do not embody Euroamerican ideals. One way to begin making music education programs more socially just is to make them more inclusive. For that to happen, we need to develop programs that actively take the standpoint of the least advantaged, and work toward a common good that seeks to undermine hierarchies of advantage and disadvantage. And that, inturn, requires the ability to discuss race directly and meaningfully. Such discussions afford valuable opportunities to confront and evaluate the practical consequences of our actions as music educators. It is only through such conversations, Connell argues, that we come to understand “the real relationships and processes that generate advantage and disadvantage”(p. 125). Unfortunately, these are also conversations many white educators find uncomfortable and prefer to avoid."

    1. Different ways to prepend a line: (echo 'line to prepend';cat file)|sponge file sed -i '1iline to prepend' file # GNU sed -i '' $'1i\\\nline to prepend\n' file # BSD printf %s\\n 0a 'line to prepend' . w|ed -s file perl -pi -e 'print"line to prepend\n"if$.==1' file
    1. The first argument to shared_context (the shared group name) is superfluous. It feels a bit like "what's this argument for again?" (Note that you could still use it with include_context to include the group manually, but it's a bit odd to mix-and-match the approaches).
    1. Once a variable is specified with the use method, access it with EnvSetting.my_var Or you can still use the Hash syntax if you prefer it: EnvSetting["MY_VAR"]
    1. We want the GraphQL API to be the primary means of interacting programmatically with GitLab. To achieve this, it needs full coverage - anything possible in the REST API should also be possible in the GraphQL API.

    1. Collecting per-second measurements of CPU load might yield interesting data, but such frequent measurements may be very expensive to collect, store, and analyze.

      Revisit the log files on our production server.

    1. it is better to allow an error budget—a rate at which the SLOs can be missed—and track that on a daily or weekly basis
    2. To save effort, build a set of reusable SLI templates for each common metric; these also make it simpler for everyone to understand what a specific SLI means.
    1. With over 16 million pulls per month, Google’s `distroless` base images are widely used and depended on by large projects like Kubernetes and Istio. These minimal images don’t include common tools like shells or package managers, making their attack surface (and download size!) smaller than traditional base images such as `ubuntu` or `alpine`.

      I need to check these out.

    1. There's nothing to stop you from doing initializer code in a file that lives in app/models. for example class MyClass def self.run_me_when_the_class_is_loaded end end MyClass.run_me_when_the_class_is_loaded MyClass.run_me... will run when the class is loaded .... which is what we want, right? Not sure if its the Rails way.... but its extremely straightforward, and does not depend on the shifting winds of Rails.

      does not depend on the shifting winds of Rails.

    1. Of course you must not use plain-text passwords and place them directly into scripts. You even must not use telnet protocol at all. And avoid ftp, too. I needn’t say why you should use ssh, instead, need I? And you also must not plug your fingers into 220 voltage AC-output. Telnet was chosen for examples as less harmless alternative, because it’s getting rare in real life, but it can show all basic functions of expect-like tools, even abilities to send passwords. BUT, you can use “Expect and Co” to do other things, I just show the direction.
    2. But in all this incongruous abundance you'll certanly find the links to expect It's just what is wanted: the tool, which is traditionally used to communicate automatically with interactive programs. And as it always occurs, there is unfortunately a little fault in it: expect needs the programming language TCL to be present. Nevertheless if it doesn't discourage you to install and learn one more, though very powerful language, then you can stop your search, because expect and TCL with or without TK have everything and even more for you to write scripts.
    1. “Who cares? Let’s just go with the style-guide” — to which my response is that caring about the details is in the heart of much of our doings. Yes, this is not a major issue; def self.method is not even a code smell. Actually, that whole debate is on the verge of being incidental. Yet the learning process and the gained knowledge involved in understanding each choice is alone worth the discussion. Furthermore, I believe that the class << self notation echoes a better, more stable understanding of Ruby and Object Orientation in Ruby. Lastly, remember that style-guides may change or be altered (carefully, though!).
    1. We strongly encourage you to reset any personal access tokens and OAuth tokens you have.

      Reset my access tokens. Pretty sure I have at least one.

    1. This approach is preferable to overriding authenticate_user! in your controller because it won't clobber a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff Devise does (such as storing the attempted URL so the user can be redirected after successful sign in).
    1. # +devise_for+ is meant to play nicely with other routes methods. For example, # by calling +devise_for+ inside a namespace, it automatically nests your devise # controllers: # # namespace :publisher do # devise_for :account # end

    1. This should link to / explain the relationship to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_(computer_programming) (which I believe is a way of expressing / codifying semantic classes into source code).

      It should also link to / explain the relationship to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_theory

    2. (Not answered on this stub article)

      What, precisely, is the distinction/difference between a semantic class and a semantic field? At the very least, you would say that they are themselves both very much within the same semantic field.

      So, is a semantic class distinct from a semantic field in that semantic class is a more well-defined/clear-cut semantic field? And a semantic field is a more fluid, nebulous, not well-defined field (in the same sense as a magnetic field, which has no distinct boundary whatsoever, only a decay as you move further away from its source) ("semantic fields are constantly flowing into each other")?

      If so, could you even say that a semantic class is a kind of (hyponym) of semantic field?

      Maybe I should pose this question on a semantics forum.

    1. a Docker container running a very simple NodeJS web server with the Graphile library (and some additional Netflix internal components for security, logging, metrics, and monitoring) could provide a “better REST than REST” or “REST++” platform for rapid development efforts

      Give this a try.

      1. Get out the city shapefile and overlay these values.
      2. Get the most current version of the voter registration database.
      3. Determine the number of voters who, according to the Spokane Journal of Business, took part in the 2018 school bond vote, but not the stadium advisory vote. (Geographically, these would be folks who live within SD81, but outside of the city limits.)
    1. Meh... as I said earlier, I think using Webpack is the recommended way now. Another issue is there is no way to generate source maps in production.
    2. But yeah, I'm not sure how you would determine which was the "recommended way" really. I don't see anything in Rails docs saying either way.
    3. But last I have seen comments from DHH, he considered webpack(er) recommended for JS, but Sprockets still the preferred solution for (S)CSS.
    4. Is there a PR to... something? sassc-rails? That would make the patch not necessary? (I don't know if there's any good way to monkey-patch that in, I think you have to fork? So some change seems required...) Should the defaults be different somehow? This is very difficult to figure out.
