Net Weekly #74 | Stefan Judis Net Improvement

Joyful new week, associates! 👋

Private blogs appear to be on the rise recently. I see increasingly new blogs, and I am there for it!

Many individuals suppose that running a blog is primarily about writing issues down for others. It isn’t. My weblog has become my very own little data base through the years. I do not thoughts publishing fast ideas or notes with 5 sentences. 🤷‍♂️ If individuals discover worth in it, nice! If not, additionally nice as a result of I posted it for my future self.

I typically do not bear in mind options or info, however I bear in mind once I made a word on my weblog and skim my very own posts a number of occasions every week. I write issues down to recollect.

As Marco Heine places it in “Simply hit publish”:

It doesn’t must be excellent. It needs to be on right here. That’s the primary purpose.

Strongly agree!

However it’s not solely about making a second mind. Writing issues down streamlines ideas. Regardless of if you are debugging one thing, gathering factors for an argument, or making an attempt to provide you with a plan. Placing some headlines on paper, and developing with a top level view; all these steps assist me make sense of this wild bundle of ideas I am going through day by day. 🙈

Zine about writing things down.

You may know that I’ve a blogroll on my website. In the event you’re running a blog, inform me about it! I might love so as to add you to my RSS feed as a result of I am tremendous curious in regards to the belongings you put into your data base!

… and, as at all times, GitHub repositories, a brand new Tiny Helper and a few music.

Lastly, welcome to the 184 new subscribers! I am tremendous excited to have you ever round! 👋

TIL – why Norwegians do not like YAML

The reason to why this is problematic in some cases, is “The Norway Problem” YAML has: when you abbreviate Norway to its ISO 3116-1 ALPHA-2 form NO, YAML will return false when parsing it.

The next made me snicker – I barely use YAML, however I discovered that it treats all the next values as false: n, N, no, No, NO, false, False, FALSE, off, Off, OFF.

That is quite a bit, however one among them is undoubtedly annoying whenever you stay in Norway (NO). 😆

TIL – calc() would not work with zeros

Note: Because <number-token>s are always interpreted as <number>s or <integer>s, “unitless 0” <length>s aren’t supported in math functions. That is, width: calc(0 + 5px); is invalid, because it’s trying to add a <number> to a <length>, even though both width: 0; and width: 5px; are valid.
