^ Ways to improve #25 - can we have a code expander built into these comments? Sometimes I need to look at the couple of lines preceding or following the line that has been commented on - but currently have to switch to the Files Changed view to do that.

The more your tests resemble the way your software is used, the more confidence they can give you.

Ways to improve #24: put a bit of padding between the scroll bar and the code in a PR comment. I want to copy & paste the code but the scrollbar is in the way!

“He pointed out that pedestrians would have no hesitation in stepping out in front of driverless cars, knowing they were programmed to stop, and the result would be gridlock.” Driverless tech is there, but dealing with humans who flout the system is not.

Also a good example of slow/intermittent/offline connection; the importance of not relying on megabytes of JavaScript for a simple working page! 😀

Each commit encapsulates one thing really well. If you get code review feedback or need to fix a linting issue, rather than pushing up a quick fix with "fix jenkins" etc you just absorb it into the commit it should ideally have been in in the first place.

I don't know how I've managed it, but I've accidentally travelled forwards in time.

The words “git rebase” used to fill me with dread. I can now do it blindfolded at 😂 love it! I feel like the Marie Kondo of git commits 🙌

I disable JavaScript quite often when I browse the web, all because of GDPR. I'm not going to blindly accept cookies and I don't have the time to read the privacy policy of every site I visit, nor to opt out of each cookie individually. Turning JS off stops the popup, period. 🚀

Actually he's really struggling with the zips I sent ("what's this DS Store thing?") So I'm actually going to try the Firefox thing - thanks for the tip!

That's a great service for most people, but I'm trying to send pictures to my dad, who's not particularly computer literate. He'd probably think he can go back to the link to view the images again, and it would expire. 😅

We're in 2019 but there's still no easy way to send an album of high-res pictures to someone via email (without keeping it perpetually in your personal Dropbox or iCloud). I've just zipped 2 images at a time and sent about 15 separate emails.

Ooooo I think this is clever. If you need to link to an SVG file rather than use inline <svg>, the temptation is to use it as a background-image. But if it’s single-color, you can use it as a `mask` instead, which makes changing the color way easier.
