Aaaand now for the obligatory blog post: ef.gy/fortuned
This one ties it all together. And has an embedded JSFiddle. Because.
And now for something way cuter: the swans are still doing fine and there's a duck family next to their nest now :3.
Ah, and of course there needs to be a JSFiddle. Obvi. jsfiddle.net/jyujin/t87whwj…
Now, let's see if I forgot anything else...
Of course, no silly API is complete without a node.js client on NPM:
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, this Fortune API at github.com/ef-gy/fortuned…
is also available as a Tor Hidden Service: 664ov6iyvgpe63xn.onion/fortune
And here's the full API docs: github.com/ef-gy/fortuned…
I'll never grow tired of mocking the whole "As A Service" concept. Mwahaha.
Just for the record, I wasn't kidding about that Fortune As A Service thing. Try this:
alias fortune="curl api.ef.gy/fortune
Just released yet another HTTP server: github.com/ef-gy/cxxhttp/…
Now to do silly things with it. I'm revising that fortune cookie API server.
I swear, EVERY controller review is like "waaah, waaah, aim assist, waaaah precision, waaah waaah reaction times waaaah keyboard and mouse."
What is it with people still insisting you can't play FPS games well with a joypad or trackball?
Ain't the controller's fault you suck at it
Dang, Dance With the Dead is turning into my favorite music, ever.
Note to self: iPhone autocorrect seems much less likely to mess with Spanish than with German. Intriguing.
Interesting. Enabled -Wall -pedantic on some code I'd been working on, and the only new warnings were Wreorder and one unused function. :3
Oh yeah, I had the glorious idea of binging X-Files a few weeks back. Still at it.
Now I wanna walk up to an airline counter to buy tickets.
X-Files S03E06 - NOT an episode to watch anytime near when you're trying to have food.
Can't decide if the 1 day NYC visit after Austin was baller or a bad idea. It does beat a layover at JFK though.
Also my stomach no Tex-Mex.
So here I am, a Horizon corp kiddo sipping a slushie at a Texas truck stop after borrowing a bike from a Lone Star agent.
For love songs, you want to be made of uranium. That actually IS bulletproof, and it'll also make you glow. You'd be very hollow, though.
Also, infidelity is not the same as murder. And given the song context, everyone is clearly consenting to it, so it's not infidelity per se.
Cheesy love songs VS reality: titanium is not magically bulletproof
Also if you were made of the stuff by weight it'd make you rather hollow
Why do so many websites use a custom, HTML-and-JS authentication flow, when they support fewer security features than HTTP Digest Auth?
an Apple Watch will happily survive being flung across an open plan office in response to being enraged over receiving too many pings.
Looks like this is precisely what I wanted doxygen to be, but the output doesn't want to make ... output: github.com/jessevdk/cldoc
Just unmated my telly and it was set to 11. Ah, good times.
Today, Christians everywhere celebrate the resurrection of a mighty lich overlord, so he can raise a zombie army at the end of time
First time swimming without a rashy in about a year.
Pool water feels weird on my chest now.
It's also way too easy without the extra drag.
Wonder if I should work tomorrow and take a different random day off instead. Tend to be much more productive when nobody's in the office...
I think I'd really like a black glass desk mat with a cutout that is precisely the size of an iPad Air 2. Same depth. Would be killer.
Pro tip: trying to sell "speaking German" as a strong point in your tech position ad will not go over well with anti-patriots. And Swabians.
Me, to constantly disconnecting BT touchpad: "I hate you to the maximum amount known to science!"
*tosses touchpad across open plan office*
I would pay extra for that seating layout. Definitely beats those cramped seats everywhere. (I do have rather long legs, though...) twitter.com/Reflog_18/stat…
... and for those who prefer working by example, there's this: github.com/ef-gy/cxxhttp-…
- it's actually pretty net and straightforward...
So, I decided to actually put some work into that HTTP lib from a while ago, and this happened: github.com/ef-gy/cxxhttp
Reading about how to destructinate the planet. Boaz, did you have your hands in this? qntm.org/destroy
Had a great time at #alterconf
today. Thanks to all the speakers! <3
Looks like I'll have a weekend to kill in Texas in early May.
Was thinking of taking a motorbike into the desert. Any thoughts?
So, I just saw this seal in the dodder. That's... not where they usually are?
Ugh, I need a manicure, stat. Fortunately @machine_person
was kind enough to give me a coupon at my favorite place for that. Yaysers :3.
Did I complain about #DST
yet, this year? I forget. I was too busy being jet lagged.
Anyway, it's shite. Pick a time zone and keep it, ffs.
Can we get, like, a reverse Kickstarter kinda thing, where we provide funding to get people to implement an idea we have?
So... I'm just gonna leave this here...
Have a great ol' morning y'all! :)
Bucket list update:
Get a piece of code reviewed and approved by the person who literally wrote the book on the language in question: check
Started watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
I rescind my prior statement of Kefka being the most evil villain ever. Still is in games, though
Still relevant. Harrrr. fb.me/5zBJ0L8nA
Now, to clarify, I don't trust the corps with that there data either, I just REALLY don't trust governments with it.
I might be alone in this, but I trust any random corp a whole lot more with my data than any "civilised" government. Accountability and all.
It'd be cool if we could get an assist against this sort of thing: whoishostingthis.com/blog/2017/03/1…
That really WAS ambiguous. fb.me/10gbMa3XK
