Go has a really nice looking APNS provider package. Just as I finish writing my convenience layer on top of Postgres in JavaScript, I see it might be better to do it in Go… it's good I don't work for anyone… 😑

@muncman Heihei is my favourite part of that movie. Fun fact: he's voiced by Alan Tudyk [youtu.be]

@33MHz Bright looks crazy and the Three Billboards trailer had me laughing.

@33MHz k'nex and Lego are my jam. Hours of my childhood… that stuff makes you think spatially, or at least it satiated the visual/spatial part of my brain.

@jws would inverting the left/right buttons of the mouse help take the stress off the same finger always clicking? Is that even possible? /@bayprogrammer
@shawn
I may be taking this database concurrency thing a bit too far. I'm learning how to benchmark (or stress test) things though.
@shawn
Asynchronous loops using Promises. A bit of a mind jumble, at first. Then more so when I introduced error handling…
@shawn
After a few weeks of frustrated off-again-on-again JavaScript coding I might have finally broken the cycle. I started making composeable bits with promises and things started to take shape.

@33MHz it was. Odd and beautiful and a little sad too. Not quite what I expected

I've put this off for far too long. Time to watch Pan's Labyrinth

@thrrgilag I had a beer and I tried to read this as a normal post. For a moment, I thought I was super drunk.

I think the minions can't sustain a full arc, but they're also so hilarious. I suspect that they're 40% or why there was a third Despicable Me
@shawn
Despicable Me 3 was a lot of fun. The whole cast, Steve Carell especially, really didn't phone it in. I love the slap stick humor; they paired it with music and dance to great effect.

The minions were fantastic as usual, one great bit after another.

@Nasendackel ah poop. It's been perfect for four days strait here. I hope some sun comes your way

Tonight I'm still working with Node and Postgres. I've made progress but I will be glad to be done with it. I may be over complicating things considering the physical constraints of device tokens though.

@jws indeed. I will stick with a Node driver but hopefully in the future I'll be able to switch to Swift. Planning on building something with Postgres for my next project now that I know it's not so daunting.

Thanks for all the tips 😊
@shawn
I now have Postgres running on my Mac. I've been brainstorming how to migrate away from MongoDB after reading documentation all day. I have to attempt some Foreign & Primary Key ideas tomorrow, but it looks less difficult than I originally speculated.
