makes me think back to that one rails 1-ish video with the dudes with actual freakin jars

containerizing a rails 4.2 / ruby 2.3 app in september 2019 is fun not fun

ran into this today, latest alpine images musl lib causes elixir/erlang to error out. building from alpine:3.9 works for now.

update: it works, but you have to resolve names to actual IPs first, COMPLETELY UNLIKE single nameserver behavior and not in the docs

i'm over it - multiple nameservers just plain doesn't work, this might be the first time i switch to elixir for quick scripting

i really didn't want to have to dig into lib/resolv.rb this morning

i've (almost purposefully? 馃) got a giant gap in my knowledge about string encoding. would a kind soul help me understand this?

>> s
=> "锘;"

>> s.class
=> String

>> s.encoding
=> #<Encoding:UTF-8>

>> s.bytes
=> [239, 187, 191, 59]

tried to test this with const x = 1/0 but sigh joke's on me

declare & assign a const in js, and if the value side fails/exceptions, the const is still declared and is now completely unusable

before geoloqi got bought by esri, i didn't know what GIS was; i think i've needed some form of it at *every* job i've had since

good morning i have to go read docs on a lib i wrote to remember how to use it; we're all gettin' by folks

i've clicked these on an off for years, why only recently has the alignment started bothering me?

we have an insane stack, and my team is 4 engs, 1pm, & me - we'll be growing soon, 2 roles near term: 1 laravel workflow application engineer, 1 automation + mobile engineer (android and go svcs). hit me up if you are interested! boosts appreciated <3
