if you're not happy single, you won't be happy in a relationship.

true happiness comes from closing 100 chrome tabs after solving an obscure programming bug, not from someone else

Combine the new JavaScript features “nullish coalescing” with “optional chaining” and a ternary to make your code extra modern and abstract. Your PRs will be unstoppable come review time.

So I learned of an amusing bug today:

Docker for Windows won't run if you have the Razer Synapse driver management tool running.

But the reason is the funny part...

If you don’t want Spotify to take over podcasts for themselves, the best things you can do are:

- Don’t listen there. Most other podcast apps are better anyway!

- Stop listening to any shows that become Spotify exclusives, and tell the creators why they lost you as a listener.

So you’re telling me I have to exercise multiple times every week for the rest of my life?

I’m confused.

How did we conclude that the best way to prepare kids for the future is to cluster them into a setting where they are organized by age, into grades, and forced to learn the same things, at the same time and pace, 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 12 + years?

Huh?

Introducing Voice Boost 2 in Overcast, which brings mastering-quality volume leveling to your podcasts: marco.org/2020/01/31/voiceboos

Also in this update (v. 2020.1):

- AirPlay 2 (with Smart Speed and Voice Boost, of course)
- Skip intros/outros by X seconds
- Restored iOS 12 support

I should have gotten a Thunderbolt 3 dock earlier. Dual 4K60, all of my USB 2.0 accessories (keyboard/mouse/webcam), sound, and 85W charging for my MacBook Pro through a single TB3 cable. Glorious.

vi is the extreme ipad-counterpoint example of @gruber@twitter.com's iPad criticism — vi is beloved (??) because it's INSANELY COMPLEX but also MEGA POWERFUL. The complexity of the interface model is justified by the power. The iPad is weirdly complex and not particularly powerful.

If you're not paying for it, YOU'RE the product.

Ever since discovering and loving @Caudabe@twitter.com's iPhone cases 3+ years ago, I've exclusively bought their cases. An excellent interaction I just had with their customer support team showed me that their team is as great as their products. Highly recommended if you need a phone case.

Spotify’s ad tech will continue to expand, but it will only affect podcasts if you listen to them in Spotify.

Keep using independent podcast apps, and the surveillance abilities by large podcast publishers will remain extremely limited. twitter.com/NathanBLawrence/st
