the other night, when i was walking back to my hotel room, there was this group of three gen z 20-somethings standing outside the stadium; one of them randomly yelled a “what’s up tho???” at me as i was walking by and when i instinctively reacted with a “hi”, they all just laughed at me :(
just had my Apple Card declined at a brewery and, instead of getting a “Suspicious Transaction” notification, they just completely locked my card. in fact, they locked it so hard that not only did they force a reset of my card number, they forced a reset of my Apple ID password. what the fuck?
i strive to write code that’s readable enough not to need code comments… but when you’re dealing with time and duration, it’s really difficult to keep things straight. i’ve been working with time a lot as i work on FireHydrant’s upcoming on-call product, and something i’ve been adding a lot to my code that deals with time is visual comments. for example, take this test about requesting coverage. the intended result is visible at a glance without having to juggle eight timestamps in your head!
