Link Unfurling with HTML::SocialMeta πŸ”— 1609987268  

I did a deep dive into how pasted links turn into previews in chat and social media applications and was pleasantly surprised to find CPAN had the solution for me. I found a couple of gotchas you might want to know about if you don't want to figure this out the hard way.

Troglodyne Live! Hot Take Testing πŸ”— 1609527292  

Wherein we give the YT streaming a shot, talking about "old news" but that still has the potential for huge implications.

tCMS Retrospective: Houston.pm.org πŸ”— 1609274960  

It took a bit of creative thinking to cram a site that wasn't my brainchild into muh box. Though thankfully it didn't require too much custom fitting and fixes to get the job done.

That said, it could have gone a lot smoother. Discussing that and more!

tCMS Retrospective: Phase 1 Completion πŸ”— 1608164452  

tCMS is more or less doing what we wanted it to. What's more, it fit into the time we allocated for getting it done! Today we looked back at what we did and where we want to go next with Troglodyne.

tCMS Hacking II: Making schema updates πŸ”— 1608129046  

Cleaning up after your SQL mistakes is important. Here's how to do it in a way that minimizes downtime.

tCMS Hacking: Removing unneeded schema πŸ”— 1608128925  

From the "I should know better" files. Having predictable user identifiers which are also superfluous is pretty bad, and something I already knew not to do, but hey, worse is better!

TrogloVlog: Episode 25 - Cute Animal Bins to stuff your programmers in! πŸ”— 1607807220  

Whee! This management stuff is easy! ...well, maybe not lol Probably not the best idea to compare your employees to zoo animals

Wherein big progress is made.

Playwright for Perl! πŸ”— 1607804450

TrogloVlog: Episode 24 - Atlassian kills self hosted! Woe unto these companies with that product? πŸ”— 1607803196  

Nah, turns out they probably would have saved money and incurred less risk by just outsourcing that concern in the first place. Atlassian is spot on with the marketing here (and we're not even shilling!)

Press release discussed:

tCMS update: ACLs, Sitemaps, RSS and more πŸ”— 1607802643  

Wherein we get closer to finishing the prototype

Troglovlog: Episode 22 - Codes of Comfort πŸ”— 1607797572  

Part 2 of the last cast. Now that we've got inauthenticity and coercion out of the way, let's strike to the heart of the matter: Comfort is overrated!

Troglovlog: Episode 21 - Codes of Coercion πŸ”— 1607796599  

Sometimes management at a firm will codify certain attitudes or practices that employees must hold or follow. Unfortunately, this guarantees inauthenticity. Don't make this mistake unless you want employees to gain cognitive dissonance about your corporate brand.

TrogloVlog: Episode 20 - MicroISV Hero discovers Economic Coordination and the Structure of Production! πŸ”— 1607795580  


TrogloVlog: Episode 19 - Do Patents in the Software World make sense? πŸ”— 1607794686  

Like all headlines with a question mark at the end, the answer is (unsurprisingly) NO. Most of the time patents are an excuse to not actually do the work required to get what you need done, instead validating your identity as "an innovator".

TrogloVlog: Episode 18 - Why Checklists Work in QA and Development πŸ”— 1607793591  

Checklists are used often in many industries, but even to this day we still see a disturbing lack of checklisting in software. Don't make this mistake!

TrogloVlog: Episode 17 - The magic is Showing Up πŸ”— 1607757999

Theming, Logins, Dynamic Routes and more!

TrogloVlog: Episode 13 - Judging Risks and Rewards as a fellow traveler in Software πŸ”— 1607752097  

This time we come in with an episode that tries to "bring it all back together" regarding things we've been talking about these past few weeks. We cannot stress enough the importance of judging risks and properly estimating expected rewards as it regards success both in software projects and your own life!

TrogloVlog: Episode 12 - Coinbase declares neutrality in the Culture War! πŸ”— 1607745352  

Maybe they were watching the last video??? lol

Anyways, the pros and cons of this are discussed in the video, as it jibes pretty well with the previous cast's content.

TrogloVlog: Episode 11 - Getting ahead in Modern Organizations πŸ”— 1607742351  

Thought working hard was going to get you ahead in life? Think again. Organizational goals are always trumped by the personal goals of the people you immediately report to. As such, get good at fulfilling those instead if you want to get ahead.

TrogloVlog: Episode 10 - Critical Theory? In MY organization? πŸ”— 1607740478  

It's less useful than you think.

In this video we'll go over the ways that critical theory can both help or hinder your organization depending on the context. Make sure you properly research all things you would inject into your corporate culture, as these things have far reaching consequences!

Upgraded Postgres on cPanel via /scripts/installpostgres πŸ”— 1607739185  

Turns out you could actually install more up to date versions of postgresql the whole time, LOL.

Too bad that never got documented.

Also a small update on me discontinuing work on my UI based upgrader for postgres in cPanel.
