    1. Don’t replace words with emojis One thing you definitely don’t want to do is have your emojis get in the way of people being able to comprehend your subject lines. Emojis should be a complement to the words in your subject lines – they should never replace words themselves. It’s when people leave out words, right?
    1. plt.grid('minor')

      I don't like grid cutting bars in half. Maybe just delete grid?

    1. Kai Kupferschmidt. (2021, March 16). “I’m not here to give you the outcome of any scientific review”, says EMA director Emer Cooke at start of press conference on AstraZeneca vaccine safety. ‘I’m here to explain the steps in the process, what we’re doing, and when you can expect us to come to a conclusion.’ [Tweet]. @kakape. https://twitter.com/kakape/status/1371811123197001729

    1. It seems like such a beautiful little visual novel and while I wasn’t expecting a masterpiece of localisation based on its low price, I was expecting to be able to read it. But that just cannot be done. Developers from Japan, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, and every other emerging game development centre through Asia-Pacific, listen to me carefully: You can have the most beautiful aesthetics and a heartwarming concept for your game. If the localisation isn’t going to be good, though, do not bother with an English release, because it is going to get reviews like this one. Make “invest in proper translation” your big resolution for 2021. I do not want to play any other games like Lily in the Hollow - Resurrection ever again.
    1. [pub_2021] 5 important concepts

      1. Equality == vs. === (primitives, object "mem ref")
      2. Async JS (callbacks, promises, async/await)
      3. Error Handling (try..catch, writing defensive code)
      4. ES6 Syntax (destructuring, spread operator, string interpolation)
      5. Array Methods (map, filter, reduce, sort, some, every)
    1. Think about how much you want to customize the desktop environment(DE), and whether you know how to do so. Pick a distro that has the DE you like.

OR Carefully watch the EOL of the interim / development releases and upgrade frequently.
    1. Cognitive fusion is a term from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which refers to a person “fusing together” with the content of a thought or emotion, so that the content is experienced as an objective fact about the world rather than as a mental construct. The most obvious example of this might be if you get really upset with someone else and become convinced that something was all their fault (even if you had actually done something blameworthy too). In this example, your anger isn’t letting you see clearly, and you can’t step back from your anger to question it, because you have become “fused together” with it and experience everything in terms of the anger’s internal logic. Another emotional example might be feelings of shame, where it’s easy to experience yourself as a horrible person and feel that this is the literal truth, rather than being just an emotional interpretation.

      Cognitive Fusion

      Cognitive Fusion is a term that comes from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

      CF happens when you identify so strongly with a thought or an emotion that its contents is experienced as the objective way the world is.

      "She is the one" for example is a cognitive fusion.

      The cognitive fusion prevents you from stepping back and examining the construct.

      You experience everything in terms of the belief's internal logic.

    1. Avoid apologies (“Sorry for the interruption”), alarm (“Warning!”), or ambiguity (“Are you sure?”)

    1. You should always take the line hight of the font you are using and add a unit to it. For example: “My button’s label has a line height of 20px and vertical padding of 8px”.
    2. Choose sentence case or title case over uppercase. (This being said, Material Design does use buttons with uppercase labels.)
    1. Addition; Please add this variables to environment if you don’t want to change code. This is a better option. Add RAILS_ENV=production , NODE_ENV=production, RAKE_ENV=production
    1. By default the current directory is used, but it's recommended to pass a value in your configuration. This makes your configuration independent from CWD (current working directory).
    1. You may not want to go straight to that number and cause the kernel to allocate memory to track a million user file watch slots; instead, just take the current value and double it until the problem stops occurring.
    1. obviously it's too late, but it's a good practice to keep the 3rd party dependencies mirrored in your own infrastructure :) There is NO GUARANTEE that even a huge site (like launchpad for downloading DEBs) won't go down over a period of time.
    1. Avoid transpilers like Babel and Bublé (and if you're using TypeScript, target a modern version of JavaScript)
    2. Don't create instances of things on initial evaluation — instantiate lazily, when the functions you export are called

    1. See https://choosealicense.com/ for tl;dr Please, please add a license. The fact none is listed makes using this software a legal quagmire. Currently it is not legal to use this code or its derivatives in any useful software. I may be mistaken but hopefully this is not the intended effect. Currently no license is mentioned anywhere, what makes this code fully copyrighted, like any other creative work. It limits usefulness of this project - and I hope that it is unintentional. For example it seems that it would solve my problem of profiling hilariously slow rspec tests (2036.33 seconds ./spec/word_processor_spec.rb:43), in current situation I would be unable to legally publish project that would use this solution. Obviously, please do not release it under any license if you are not the author (that would be even worse legal quagmire)
    1. Once a test is in quarantine, there are 3 choices: Should the test be fixed (i.e. get rid of its flakiness)? Should the test be moved to a lower level of testing? Should the test be removed entirely (e.g. because there’s already a lower-level test, or it’s duplicating another same-level test, or it’s testing too much etc.)?
    2. Quarantined tests are run on the CI in dedicated jobs that are allowed to fail
