    If 🇳🇿 changes, how long until 🇦🇺 copies the new design?

      @berg at least you got to it before running out of space :)

        @pilgrim unless it’s really simple, like RSS. Until you try using it with enclosures for podcasts. @tewha @jnm @minego

          Interesting. I’ve gotten two job offers for work in Sydney. Both through profiles saying I’m not looking for a job. Silly recruiters.

            TIL: The line that descenders reach down to is known as the beard line.

              @keita @rabryst OPTIMIZE TABLE blah does it for you. Also, can really hammer performance while running on production…

                    Have spent 6 hours so far reviewing this on PR (reviewed it twice). :(

                        Feeling like I want to get out of tech again. Am hoping the holiday will be able to put it off.

                          Really looking forward to my holiday in June. Is sorely needed

                            @cgiffard @keita my Honours supervisor liked the story about the person maintaining the mainframe on a pacific island. Multi-week compile time (via ship) for anything that couldn’t be done by directly editing the machine code.

                                I’ve now been living in "Austarlia" for a year now. People still get confused by my accent, so it's all good :D

                                    @cgiffard haha 😃 They might actually feel at home in parts of the system! Though they’re Java-esque PHP rather than something in the One True Enterprise Language™

                                      Anyone want to move to Canberra and come be a developer with me? Need to be good, and I get a bonus!
