For some reason my brain is convinced that “TTL” (in the DNS, database record, etc sense) stands for “Time To Live” rather than “Time To Live”.

…um, English, that wasn’t very helpful. “Time Until Becoming Alive” vs “Time Until Becoming Dead”. (The latter is the correct interpretation.)

Covid-19

#Covid19 is not over. I suspect many people have stopped reporting mild cases, so I've switched to looking at hospitalizations—a "trailing indicator", since there's a lag between when you get the virus and when you go to the hospital.

Hospitalizations are currently higher than they were in October 2020, June 2021, or April 2022.

#Etymology fun: not only are “diary” and “journal” basically synonyms in English, they also have essentially the same etymology, “daily-thing”.

Another chart that's been bouncing around my mind: how different programming environments handle different kinds of failures. Is this a useful taxonomy? (Of course there are other axes you could include too, like implementation.)

Prior musing in this area: https://belkadan.com/blog/2021/12/Swift-Delight-Try/

The more I read about Rust’s async-trait return type problem (https://smallcultfollowing.com/babysteps/blog/2023/02/13/return-type-notation-send-bounds-part-2/), the more I think the `impl Future` shouldn’t have been implicit in `async fn` after all.

Playing with #SwiftUI today. If you want a borderless button that can also handle drag gestures on macOS, you should make a custom ButtonStyle. Attaching a DragGesture to a button with the default borderless button style won’t work.

One of the things that I would have tweeted (between leaving Twitter and setting up GoToSocial):

ytd-grid-video-renderer:has(a[href*="/shorts/"]) {
display: none !important;
}

Because I don't really need to see YouTube Shorts.

It seems silly, but I'm glad to have a place to put things like that again.

Okay, trying this out. Blog post coming soon, as usual. :-)
