I solve problems with code. Mainly of the web variety. I'm also a bit of a network tech nerd. Well, nerd in general. I also help organize .

First time hanging out at Genuine Joe's on Anderson Ln in years. Cheap, good coffee, fast WiFi, and open 'til 10p (looking at you, Summermoon a block or two over). I'll be back.

Problem for the drones: jammers and CB radios on all the lifted trucks.

Then take that one step further and rename your *Controller to *Action, since you're doing an action class :)

Y'all's Android app notifications have been broken for a bit, at least under Pie. No text in the notifications!

Put another way, one of the use cases for GraphQL is when your client-side team won't talk with your API team about their use cases. Oh wait. That's not a use case. That's a failure mode.

Getting back to GraphQL, I'm fine with GraphQL as part of an API. But the default should be well-designed REST; if GraphQL can be defended as a choice for a particular use case so be it. But it's harmful as a default/the other way around.

XML isn't even a bad data interchange format if you actually pay attention to design when you build your schema. But XML hurts worse when poorly designed than JSON does.

Used them thrice and they were fine. Who would you use instead for Americans paying folks in the EU (or vice versa)? PayPal is a complete ripoff fee-wise.

I've mentioned that somebody should do this for a couple of years, but it looks like Tulsa went ahead and did it: It's very explicitly: "You, probably-tech-person, are well-monied and can work anywhere. Tulsa would be happy to have you; here's our bid."

I admit to being a grammar nut, but it's deprecated NOT depreciated. Your code is not having its value lowered. Deprecate is literally from "pray it away" which is what we are doing to old broken stuff!

Yes, API metadata makes attacking an API "easier" just like Google Maps makes finding banks to rob "easier" If you're counting on "no one knows we're here" as protection, you've already lost.

Heck, they picked cities with the #1 and #2 transit systems in the US, with tons of connectivity to everywhere via air. And neither place will be turned upside down by importing 10k employees. Can't say I blame 'em.

Oh, so HQ2 in NoVA will be between DCA and the Pentagon. In terms of connectivity and not potentially putting tons more cars on the road, that makes sense (two Metro lines run through there, and they're apparently adding capacity too).

What I should be doing: useful stuff What I'm doing instead: figuring out turnaround times for and to calculate how many gates each need for current and projected capacity. I'd say I took the wrong line of work, but said line of work pays well :)
