Hi and yes! Thank you for reminding me about season 3!

simongray07:06:52

good morning

borkdude08:06:25

Well, alright. Good morning then.

Finally replacing my 2014 MacBook Pro

raymcdermott10:06:07

I bought it a day or two before M2 was announced 🤡

RAMart11:06:33

Nice! I'm planning to replace my MacBook Pro by a MacBook Air as well, but I'm a little afraid to be honest. So please share you experiences! :hugging_face:

agigao12:06:55

Congrats! But I guess you can return and wait for M2 😁

agigao12:06:27

I replaced my previous lap with 16" M1 Pro and it’s damn heavy to travel with. Consider M2 Air.

RAMart12:06:25

I'm a big fan of 13". Also fits in hotel safes.

raymcdermott12:06:58

My only slight annoyance is that they now permit 24Gb of RAM whereas the previous model had a max of 16Gb

raymcdermott12:06:46

but I'm not going to replace it. I have enough to do.

reefersleep12:06:32

Congrats! Nothing like that “perfectly new” feel :star-struck:

simongray12:06:06

I have that exact model and colour

simongray12:06:51

I used to have an Intel one (bought right after they made the retina variant), but I spilled coffee in it, so my insurance paid for the M1 upgrade :D

simongray12:06:06

It is still the best value laptop out there IMO, despite its relative age

val_waeselynck12:06:30

> It is still the best value laptop out there IMO, despite its relative age @U4P4NREBY What is?

simongray13:06:40

the M1 Macbook Air

borkdude13:06:43

@U1Z4D5SSV As said on ClojureD: I'm very happy with my MBA13 M1

Good to know, I'm also considering buying a new MBA...

Installing git on ARM is already turning into fun

borkdude15:06:45

@U04V5V0V4 just install git via brew and it should just work ™️ ?

raymcdermott15:06:00

brew uses git 🙂

borkdude15:06:22

I can't remember having problems with that btw. isn't git already pre-installed?

raymcdermott15:06:55

but downloading the CLI tools plus rosetta is working

val_waeselynck15:06:27

I wonder if Emacs adoption is a good predictor of the tolerance people have for this sort of hurdle

raymcdermott15:06:00

I'm not an Emacs user so not sure about that

raymcdermott15:06:21

programmers in general have to be quite patient tho

RAMart15:06:34

> brew uses git This reminds me that I once bought a pair of scissors whose packaging I could not open without... scissors

val_waeselynck15:06:36

well, are you particularly intolerant to this sort of hurdle? 😉

raymcdermott15:06:37

cos we know that computers are terrible

raymcdermott15:06:14

@U04V15CAJ are you saying that you have a version of git that runs native to the M1? How can one tell?

raymcdermott15:06:37

[ I could tell by failure 😆 ]

borkdude16:06:09

$ file $(which git)
/usr/bin/git: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
- Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64e:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64e
- Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64e]
/usr/bin/git (for architecture x86_64):	Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
/usr/bin/git (for architecture arm64e):	Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64e

borkdude16:06:39

Maybe you just have some crap on your system. I started with an entirely fresh one

borkdude16:06:46

I'm using /usr/bin/git

raymcdermott16:06:45

ha - it's there ... I was side tracked by my good friend IJ that looks for git in /usr/local/bin so I just played the 🧟

raymcdermott16:06:00

I'll fix it - thanks

raymcdermott16:06:54

so scratch all that :poop: above - works out of the 📦 if you know where to 🔍

val_waeselynck13:06:28

Forgot to tell you: this little one also came to say hi this morning https://photos.app.goo.gl/YvMoVBGDDuVm6i1J7

plexus14:06:09

So I generally don't function well at all if I didn't get enough sleep, but if I get the right kind of thing to hack on that's just challenging and exciting enough I can just go into hyperfocus and have probably the most productive day ever... is that weird?

javahippie14:06:39

Isn’t that just how the brain works? 😅 Fits my experience, too

plexus14:06:15

I was supposed to fly to the states today, but the flight got cancelled and rebooked to tomorrow, so I know have this extra day to just sit around... ended up making good use of it

RAMart15:06:34

Eurowings? 😬

RAMart15:06:13

> So I generally don't function well at all if I didn't get enough sleep If you want to get rid of this impractical and obstructive limitation, get some kids. (Just hearsay.)

robert-stuttaford15:06:20

i love when that happens

pez15:06:18

If something is exciting enough the brain gets into turbo mode. I see this with my kids often. Something they are supposed to learn in some specific order and pace just doesn't stick. Something that they are interested and excited about? They get on their way to mastery in no-time.

pez15:06:10

Sleep depravation just don't stand a chance against this excitement induced turbo mode. 😃

Adam Helins15:06:07

You've just described the state of flow 🙂 Arguably the closest thing to true happiness there is

4
RAMart15:06:14

I think it's more intrinsic. If I put some extra energy in it, I can get into "the flow" even on things I'm really not interested in.

plexus15:06:11

Yes, this is very much a state of flow. My point is that it's even more pronounced when I'm (mildly) sleep deprived. I think it's cause it gives me a tendency to ignore the rest of the world because I don't feel like dealing with it 🙂 so I end up going in hyperfocus flow on the thing I'm doing.

borkdude16:06:18

I have this a lot too. So what did you hack on?

Adam Helins16:06:48

Hunger can to some extend act similarly. Probably anything that would put you in a heightened state of focus without becoming itself distracting :thinking_face:

borkdude16:06:24

Too much sleep can also be sedating. So I imagine getting less sleep for once can elevate your focus in some way

plexus16:06:56

Did a proof of concept implementation of a datomic -> postgres export/sync

👍 2
plexus16:06:57

We've been running with datomic analytics for a while but aren't too stoked, we think we'll get much more leverage out of this approach.

Good morning
