made a successful business argument this weekend, using Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 as the basis, so

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.

@ioquatix i found myself at socketry/rubydns as i was muddling about - but remembered Jonan hunting down a crazy bug between lib/resolv and resque and become determined to make stdlib work :)

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

thanks! also good to know it's pretty useless πŸ˜† for anyone following along, the ruby encoding option to avoid this is:

File.read 'utf8_with_bom.txt', encoding: 'bom|utf-8'

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

>> s
=> "ο»Ώ;"

>> 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
