Next up: rocket.rs and actix-web, in either order. These both have good docs and a more standard approach to API design, so they’ll spend fewer novelty points. I think Rocket in particular will feel very familiar to everybody.

I remain unsure I want to hand Warp to the rest of the team. It requires spending novelty points that tbh we have already spent by choosing Rust. I’m willing to try it, though, depending on what we learn next.

Warp enraged me as I thrashed around trying to find some kind of introductory concepts doc, but eventually I read enough examples that it made sense. I was pleased with the results and forgave it.

It’s refreshingly different.

We have, in small slack bot side projects. done experimental work with web server frameworks Tide and Warp. Tide is not ready for production use (they say so, to be fair) and we’ve moved on from it.

Massive rewrite project update: We have started to write Rust in earnest. The days feel very successful and productive, though exhausting.

Madagascar has a new lemur species!

It's a tiny mouse lemur named in honor of Prof. Jonah Ratsimbazafy. With his tireless work for the protection of lemurs, he serves as a role model for a growing community of young Malagasy scientists. Let's welcome Jonah's mouse lemur!

I have no idea how the gym can afford to operate with the level of usage I saw today (three people total) but I’ll take advantage of the equipment while I can.

I am now about to try going to an *outdoor* gym session— weights in the parking lot, limited number of people present, masks on. I declined to go to the gym when it (briefly) reopened for indoor use before the county locked down again.

Well, we have it better than the Millennials— the Boomers hadn’t managed to pull up *all* the ladders behind themselves when we started trying to climb.

So does Netflix get to run a series with those two A-list actors? (I mean Theron and Ejiofor.) It feels… unlikely?

Nice setup on “speaks Russian”. The payoff was sufficiently distant from the setup to feel real.

I’d watch Charlize Theron fight all day any day and twice on Sundays.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival actor arrested with no cause, handcuffed to sewage grate and pinned to ground with deputy's knee on his upper back.

It appears that no person of color is safe from this kind of brutality anywhere in Oregon. oregonlive.com/crime/2020/07/o
