Nick Yesterday I made four commits to personal projects. I had not made any for a month. This is a success.
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia Now try and keep the momentum.
πŸ€”βœοΈ David Check this out: old.reddit.com/r/aoe2 if he wants to be a part of a community of players then he's in for a treat...
πŸ‘‰ LΓ©o Age of Empires II and older versions of Grand Theft Auto! It seems about once a year or so I end up reinstalling one of those on my computer, play with it for a week, and then delete it.
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia I always joked to my dad that he was the last person to still play AoE II. Now I can happily tell him there's another player!
πŸ’ Lucian Marin There's no caching layer because it will hide slowdowns. Once you don't have that you tend to focus on performance at all layers of the stack from template rendering to writing speedy SQL queries.
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia ... and speedy it is. Very well done.
πŸ€”βœοΈ David In a previous post he stated that it runs using Falcon and some WSGI (I'm guessing uWSGI -> edit: nope, gunicorn) on a high-compute Vultr instance. Link for reference: subreply.com/lucia...
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia Nice! Thanks! I'd guess there are some de-normalized tables involved, or this setup can do JOINS incredibly fast. Impressive.
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia How can this site (sublevel) be so fast. I mean < 50ms even for the 45 threads view? Just wow! Would love to see a technical write-up, stack, DB structure, caching etc. I really find the speed very impressive

Rsm Anybody have an idea if it's safe to download and install the deepl translation app?
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia I'm using it. It's just so good. Is it safe? I have no way of verifying that. But they are German and I trust that they comply with the strict data protection laws there.
⌨️ Joseph Any good recommendations for an RSS reader? I'm trying to curb my mindless scrolling of things like Reddit and HN. I'm on iOS for mobile if that matters.
Runlevelrobot Well I am having issues with the screen not redrawing after i issue say the clear command. I have to click on the window for it to refresh
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia Sorry man, I can't help here. This kind of problem sucks, could be anything... :/
Runlevelrobot Anybody good with tmux by chance?
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia I use it and know my way around but just need a handful of hotkeys. I keep coming back to this cheatsheet: gist.github.com/he...
Sergiusz Airlines cancelled my friend over three flights home for the last two months. So we are going with a couple of friends through the Europe to move him back home.
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia Sounds like road movie material. Like this Greek student who went from Scotland to Greece by bike: greekcitytimes.com...
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia That's really interesting. I've also noticed that I'm back at what I guess is my natural sleep cycle. Because I work from home and the kids don't need to go to school there's no use for an alarm clock and everyone just wakes up naturally. I go to bed a roughly the same time but wake up nearly 2 hours later than "normal" weekdays. Also there is no difference anymore between weekdays and weekends. And I'm not tired in the early afternoon, as I used to be.
πŸƒ Matt CSVs and CSV usage is such a mess I don't know where to start. Excel being a big cause of the headache. Anyone have an Excel alternative that doesn't try and mess with CSVs? Something "pure"? (Other than editing text directly...)
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia I work with CSV a lot. There used to be a time when Libre Office had a pretty good CSV support, including the character encodings which are one of the headaches Excel gives you. However, for quite a while now I've been using a piece of software named Easy Data Transform. That covers all our use cases and helps with semi-automating things. It's paid software though.
β˜•β˜• Bobby Bobak Submitted my first Shopify app Hopefully the reviewers won't come back with many changes
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia Back at the keyboard after a 5-day trip to my close family. How simple and trivial the problems on my screen appear to be after trying to navigate through people's sensitivities for so long.
🌚 Cosmo I feel that so hard.
πŸ‘ΎπŸ‘½ Marty I had 4 wisdom teeth out. My two bottom ones were huge and left pretty big holes. That being said I felt fine. I wasn't out under, just had a pain killer. I could have easily worked so I'm sure you could too. I will say like 3 days later I had the worst headache I've ever had and apparently that can come after jaw trauma so be on the look out for that.
πŸ’πŸ‘“ Xia Four in a day!? Now that's something.
