The right abstraction is much better than duplication.

But duplication is much better than the wrong abstraction.

Gisterenavond weer een film gekeken op picl.nl.

Dat is een samenwerking tussen de Nederlandse filmhuizen en de Stichting Nederlandse Filmpromotie.

Bij het betalen van de film kun je je favoriete filmhuis (een beetje) steunen.

This childrens' toy is called a 'vormenstoof' in Dutch - anyone know what it is called in ?

When writing or , I often struggle to decide whether to model a type as a record or as a custom type/variant.

I really love how in those 2 concepts are rolled into 1 with 'case classes', though defining ADTs with those was always syntactically clumsy.

With Scala 3 this looks like it becomes much nicer with the 'enum' notation - though I haven't yet tried it enough to find out how it interacts with the also newly introduced union types.

Nat's What I Reckon is a cool dude making cool videos about cooking cool things

It would be so cool if there were a @matrix app that supported using multiple accounts (on multiple servers) simultaneously.

Are you a that likes and ?

I'd love to get help with the design of on pitch.bzzt.net , which currently looks like it was designed by a software engineer (because it was!)

Me: "This code is badly written and the choice of technology is atrocious."

Them: "Your standards are too high, no one can adhere to them!"

Me: "I can literally do remote code execution from the fraggin' password input box… FOR THE ROOT USER!"

Them: "Good you have fixed this. Everything is fine now :thisisfine:"

Given a technical challenge, "this is impossible" is an unhelpful response, even if it is true.

A more helpful way to phrase it is: "the approach as phrased cannot work because (fundamental limitation X). Can you explain what you were trying to achieve, so we can find an approach that avoids X and still meets this need?"

Ventoy is an open source tool to create bootable USB drive for ISO files.
With ventoy, you don't need to format the disk over and over, you just need to copy the iso file to the USB drive and boot it.
You can copy many iso files at a time and ventoy will give you a boot menu to select them.

Made a rudimentary "pitch match" ear trainer game this weekend, having some fun with and the Web Audio API:

Would love to hear what you think!

When looking at percentile measurements (e.g. request latency), remember:

A small percentage of fly in your soup will still ruin your whole meal.

I'm a big fan of 'boy-scouting' during coding: with each change, leave the codebase a little cleaner than you found it. I find this helps keeping the codebase healthy while not interfering with 'real work' too much.

Is there a nice gender-neutral term for this practice?
