The kind of callback we skip are expensive calls to third-party services. These are all tested separately within our suite. In Rails 4, we used this pattern to skip certain callbacks: FactoryGirl.define do factory :fremen do name 'Liet Kynes' fierceness :high after :build do Fremen.skip_callback :create, :after, :bribe_spacing_guild end trait :with_bribe do Fremen.set_callback :create, :after, […]
Taken at Blackrock, Dublin.
Photographed on my hike today. I was surprised when this photograph came out, let alone perfectly, because the wind blew me flat on my ass as I finished the capture.
I couldn’t get my head straight on Tuesday so I went to look at the sea instead.
The day was too much, so I climbed a hill and decided to be for a while.
Poor Cookie. :(
Taken at Lough Atalia, Galway.

Never mind her surgery two weeks ago.
A self-referential has_many :through relationship is one where a class interacts with itself through a join table. The classic use are followings: I follow another user. Another user follows me. So a Following is a two-way relationship between the User class and itself. There are a bunch of guides for this that are either outdated […]
Grr, rage, annoyance, rabble. kill -9 $(lsof -wni tcp:3000 -t)
The struggle is real.

Routing concerns have been a thing since Rails 4, but this morning I ran into a real annoyance: the documentation doesn’t adequately explain how to pass a module, in cases where you use separate sub-controllers. More than that, even-what if I want to pass any other options? Here’s what I came up with, using splats […]

Taken from the shore at Blackrock.
This is a stupid fucking thing, akin to Googling basic syntax for your language, but here we are. My underling and I wasted 40 minutes today re-figuring this out. Migration: class PluralSingular < ActiveRecord::Migration[5.0] create_join_table :plural, :plural end Model: app/model/foo.rb class Foo < ApplicationRecord has_many :plural_singular has_many :plural, through: :plural_singular end Join model: app/model/plural_singular.rb class […]
Taken at Blackrock Park.
Time’s an arrow, one way, here to there, that you can’t turn back. Because that’d be nonsensical, to undo what makes you, you.
Listos version: Lots happened, more yet to come. Stay tuned.
And by “retro” I mean “cringeworthy,” but that’s part and parcel with haxx0r Mark and his ghetto battlestation.

Something something legacy shoulder injury, proper ten-fingered touch typing is hard. I type fast in a ten-fingered style, but it is weird and left-dominant. Correctly keeping both hands on the home row is hard. Grumble.
