Tried and true strategy. 💯

A child: what’s that?

Me holding an oreo milkshake: it’s spicy you won’t like it.

Nice trick! And I concur with the try/catch sentiment.

const res = await promiseFn().catch(() => defaultValue)

i dislike try/catch i won’t use it unless i have to.

Genuinely curious... How are the PAW Patrol financed? They have some pretty serious tech. Someone has to be paying for it. 🤔

This is the Roald Dahl humour you never knew you needed:

Publisher: So you've given us a book about a big friendly giant, one about an enormous crocodile, and another where a granny takes a magic medicine and grows as big as a house. What's new?
Roald Dahl: There's this peach...
Publisher: Is it -
Roald Dahl: It's fucking huge

You can send an email to an actual dumpster on fire with 2020 plastered on the side. You know. Just in case you need to. 🗑🔥

This is one of my favourite new features in Big Sur. Consolidated media management. 💖

Finally got around to trying https://healthchecks.io/. Super elegant way to monitor cron jobs! Just append a curl to a job script, you can even pass the status code for some extra data.

Replying to myself

@pietvanzoen@twitter.com This has been my afternoon:

Basically even if you're transferring to an external device the file is cached with the Files app. And when the storage is full you can't move anything off the iPad, even to an external device. The only way to purge the cache is to delete/reinstall the Files app. 😱

The whole thing is glitchy as fuck.

iPadOS storage management is mind boggling. Transferring files from an app to a USB stick seems to first add the file to the Files app (taking up storage) before transferring to the stick. There seem to be no way to free up the space in on the iPad after the transfer. 🤯
