My favorite programming trick.

> With the early `return` pattern, you check for the opposite of the thing you want, and `return` early to end the function when that’s the case.

> This reduces nested `if` statements, and makes your code a bit easier to read.

@jan this is one of my favorite ways to refactor old code. Never heard it called the “early return.” I usually call it a “short circuit.”

I love technology but I don't understand the VR craze in terms of a virtual world being the future of how we interact. VR is awesome for the experience it provides and is fascinating how it can so simply transport you to entirely new worlds.

VR is overrated in my opinion. AR was and continues to be underrated. So many people laughed at those using Google Glass but are now strapping a screen to their faces and flailing around in an empty room.

That's not a world I want to build.

@solene That actually looks pretty fun!

@selea @draxil Are you certain it’s an ip-block on the other email providers and not an outbound block at your VPS? I know Linode has a block in place so you have to contact them if you’d like to host a mail server. The block is default on new accounts. I wouldn’t be surprised if other VPS hosts have a similar practice.

And now, allow me to ruin your day... 

You're welcome.

@fcktheworld587 Reading this phrase just reminds me of every tv show or movie that expands the technical acronyms to sound "smart and technical"

hilarious!

Why did you end up coming to Mastodon? Pls boost so we can get some good data 🙌

@RL_Dane I’ve been slowly converting my into playbooks. Reason being a blend of documenting my setup but also maintain consistent and secure systems.

I enjoy the manual setting up of systems the first few times to solidify my knowledge of it.
