I will be working on pagination tonight at 7 PM US/Central, when this post is about 9 hours old. I’ll stream for 2 to 2.5 hours depending where I find a natural stopping point.

I’ve streamed myself coding on Lobsters the last four Monday evenings. Typically I check on open PRs and issues to nudge them forward and then spend the rest of the time on some bug or feature. About half the time I wrestle with some random infrastructure issue and every time I tell old dev war stories. Twitch has the last couple videos if you’re curious to see what that looks like; the only thing that’ll be different this week will be the addition of on-screen chat. I won’t get any funnier or better-organized.

I wasn’t sure it’d become a habit, but it’s been stable and productive, so I figure it’s worth one post. There’s no hugely important stuff happening on the stream, I’d make an announce post for that, this is a slice-of-life of Lobsters maintenance. (Previously I worked on the Lobsters codebase at a weekly code and coffee meetup, but that was disrupted by world events. Again, my apologies go to every contributor whose work has gotten less attention than it deserved.)

    Your time zone link shows me 2 PM US/Central. I think the link should be 7 PM US/Central. (That’s also the time of this comment.)

      …yup, I generated UTC on accident instead. Thanks for the correction, and for your comments in the chat.

      What’s that monospace font you’re using? I’m on the lookout for good large x-height coding fonts.

      (edit) I found Everson Mono, and it looks really close to what’s on your screen. Is it that?

        Inconsolata with Operator Sans for the italics.

        Just curious what WM are you using I’m guessing i3

          Cool! It’s always interesting to see how other people work. I clicked through and immediately noticed the unusual fonts for quoted strings :) I’ve never seen that before but it’s an interesting alternative to syntax highlighting.
