    Working on a personal project for a MUD I play, basically taking color codes that are in the MUD and displaying the correct colors in browser using spans.

    Everything is working correctly. I mostly wanted to play with Astro and islands, which has been fun, and now I'm just trying to make things look pretty.

    My Wife and I recently had some water issues as well. We got new gutters and the water was dumping right next to the foundation, and in heavy rain we would get some significant water. We got a sump, just in case because we didn't have one, but what really fixed it was getting some gutter extensions and moving it away from the house.

    For now I got a couple of the tubes from home depot. They click together too so you can get it a fair distance away. One of my projects this summer is to dig some holes and put some pipe into a dry well for each gutter and have the gutter drain that way, but for now this is a cheap easy way to fix it. Give it a shot, it's dirt cheap to try.

    I've been kicking around the idea of getting the Refactoring UI book, mostly the price tag has stopped me. Did you find it very useful? I seem to be stuck at the level of...able to write CSS no problem, but, it just looks flat and boring, I guess?

    You know the feeling when you come across a beautiful website, and you just kind of appreciate how nice it is? The font, the spacing, the color palette choice. A good site can stop me and make me dig through the dev console to see what's going on. I'd like to get there eventually. Do you think Refactoring UI is a book that can start me on that journey?

    Yeah, currently I use Tailwind sometimes on personal or small projects. Its alright, but my designs still aren't the greatest. Functional, but not aesthetically pleasing.

    Does anyone have any good resources, books or otherwise, in regards do good design for web dev? I'm a self taught full stack dev who just can't really make things look "pretty". They are functional, but..that's about it. I know CSS, but maybe I just don't have an eye for it?

    Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

    I've suspected I might have it, though I have not gotten tested for it yet. Perhaps it's time though 😅

    Thanks for the very insightful post. Do you use anything to help manage your time blocking, or do you just enter it all manually in a calendar?

    Hey everyone!

    Do you have any experience with time blocking? Do you use any apps to help or do you do it all manually in your calendar? I recently watched a video I found on Tildes by Answer in Progress (https://youtu.be/vYaNiC4kchg?si=zh02N4bStqAhBBAe) about attention span. I have heard a lot about time blocking in the past, but always thought I never really needed it.

    However, recently I've been starting to realize maybe I'm not doing well mentally..days can slip by on YouTube, or a video game, and the things I wanted to get done get pushed back to the next day..and the next day, and so on..or things I was passionate about, things I want to succeed in that I am good at..just sort of slip away, and I stop doing them and lose my drive. So maybe I need to block time to get it done... I'm not sure. So I guess I can try Meditation and time blocking..

    Anyway, anyone have some suggestions if they do this? Have you found that it helped?

    Damn, I just got done listening to the Swindled podcast yesterday on Tyson chicken too. If you want a small, but horrifying, glimpse into what these industries are like then take a listen (I warned you). Hopefully lab grown meat one day wipes out these industries.

    This is just another story of politicians siding with people lining there pockets though, I'm sure.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for hosting a server? More specifically a Node.js rest API. I was using some of the free ones, but eventually their VC funding runs out and it turns to a paid service instead. It doesn't have to be free, but if you have any to suggest, great! I guess I'm looking for a cheap option for an API that will probably be rarely hit.

    I've never read manga until very recently, and I'm not sure why as I have been big into anime my whole life. With all the recent One Piece hype I decided I wanted to get caught up so I can start watching the anime, so I started reading the manga.

    I just have to say that wow, manga itself is really cool and I wish I started reading it sooner. Maybe it is just One Piece, as that is all I have been reading so far, but they are in such small bite size chapters that I can sit down and bang out a chapter or more often a few. I don't have as much time these days to sit and have anime binge sessions..so being able to enjoy it in this format is just great.

    Anyway, I just got to....

    spoilers below...for a ~17 year old episode, lol Nico Robin's "I WANT TO LIVE" part and wow, I got shivers!

    I have not had feels like that for awhile in an episode. I love to look up clips in the anime after I finish reading it, like big fights or emotional parts, and that did not disappoint. Anyway, if anyone has not started One Piece and you are intimidated by the amount of episodes then definitely check out the manga. Its really good.
