So, I'm working on a baby naming app. Here I will post short updates, complain about stuff, and ask questions.

(p.s. anyone looking for a second hand gas cooktop and oven?)

First day of renovations today and our builder brought his toddler to the construction site for "working Wednesday".

I think this is good.

Wi-fi hygiene is important folks. Just removed the free hotel wi-fi config from the place we stayed for our honeymoon.

It's been more than a decade.

@ashkyd Have you looked into the new Mastodon release?

Alsoโ€”good job running this thing.

Wondered if I should bother using d3 for some array stuff or just quickly roll my own.

"d3array.extent x 213,914 ops/sec ยฑ0.59% (81 runs sampled)"
"reduce x 2,029 ops/sec ยฑ0.82% (89 runs sampled)"

That's a pretty definitive answer.

Okay, enough data for the night, but I'll leave this here for pondering.

Simon was the 42 most popular given name in South Australia between 1944 and 2013.

The most popular, David, was given to about 1.4% of babies.

Guess the percentage for Simon.

Spent too much of the day on this github.com/drzax/trello-activi

But hosting was a cinch thanks to surge.sh (after I remembered it exists).

If you've ever tried to print a Trello board and been unimpressed with the results, this might be for you.
