My percentages are good
Adam Douglas Turing: film after 50 yrs. Jobs: film after 4 yrs. Hawking: film in his lifetime. Conclusion: the sooner you get a movie, the less brilliant you actually are. I mean seriously, what has Hawking done, besides be ill, take credit for something he accomplished with Roger Penrose (who always struck me as the actual brains behind their work), and popularise quantum mechanics for money? Steve Jobs at least imagined an operating system that respects typography and a phone that is a reasonable size (pre-iPhone 6).
Dave Walk Haha, "imagined." I have a feeling over time Steve Jobs' legacy will fade away while others won't. He's getting a movie made now because many people are obsessed with Apple and the studio wants to make money. Will we even remember him in 50 years?

Mark Dain It's not so much the idea but for some reason I get connection reset when I send to Pushover after Subpush has been running for a few days. It sort of dies and I can't figure out why. All that works is restarting Subpush.
Mark Dain I've been playing around in OpenSSL all day and I finally got it to make a CA and a certificate. SSL labs seems happy aside from the untrusted root and "incomplete chain". Now I can sign certificates on the fly that all my devices will accept (including my phone)! Not sure how to solve the chain problem though.
Dave Walk One of our vendors had an incomplete chain problem this week and it caused our NodeJS client to their API (backed by OpenSSL) to throw an "UNTRUSTED" error so you should probably fix that. Unfortunately I dont remember how I've dealt with that in the past and handling SSL certs may be one of the most annoying things ever.

Dave Walk Really interesting article about the community around the comment section of a prominent blogger. Unsurprisingly it didn't last. blog.longreads.com...

Mark Dain Last Thursday I cycled to work (~22.5 km) which was exhausting but I felt alive. I decided to do it again Monday but it turns out my bike had a puncture. It's annoying as over the weekend I bought salad and other healthy food and really decided to commit to this. It seems like as soon as I want to do something, I get nothing but setbacks. I really feel defeated right now.
Mark Dain Is it possible to configure vim to automatically run go fmt and go test when I save a file? I'd like it to throw a nice warning that since the last edit, the unit tests are no longer passing. If it's not possible in vim, I'll take a serious look at emacs. Anything is possible in emacs.
🍫 Lucian Marin It seems some people contribute to thousands of GitHub repositories just because they can, not because they have something meaningful to add.
Martijn But it is tax deductible no matter when, right? For us Europeans to whom most of this isn't tax deductible it just comes at a time of year where funds are low.
🍫 Lucian Marin Which button do I press to unwatch it?
Josh Sharp Black Mirror White Christmas. What a terribly evil episode.

Simon Janes There's a Christmas special airing Dec 18th. I'm sure it will be as messed up (good) as the prior. Charlie Booker is whack. :)
