Morning Folks. I hope those who attended #C08P6MXC7 last night got as much out of it as I did, learned a lot. I especially hope @jr0cket managed to satisfy his pepperoni cravings!

agile_geek07:10:54

P.S. Is ‘folks’ an acceptable gender neutral collective noun?

practicalli-john07:10:17

I would assume folks is more gender neutral than guys, but probably less universally known.

practicalli-john07:10:11

and no, the peperoni went all to quicky :(

jamiei08:10:26

Morning all

jonpither08:10:48

need to build a contact us form - silly Q but presumably you can't connect to an smtp server from Clojurescript / javascript, i.e. there has be some server side code?

xlevus08:10:40

@jonpither: You /could/ connect to a smtp server, I think there's a browser protocol for pure sockets... It would be immensely stupid to do so, but you could.

xlevus08:10:49

but yes, accepted standard is server-side code.

mccraigmccraig08:10:12

@jonpither: i bet you can find an smtp service provider with a rest api to do the connection for you !

xlevus08:10:56

There's probably a 'contact us as a service' service

jonpither08:10:26

yeah there are, but you end up paying a bit per month - also not a pleasant thought to have emails through a separate business

jonpither08:10:49

Might look into the Amazon simple email service..

korny09:10:59

Morning humans!

pupeno09:10:10

Good morning.

korny09:10:04

I’m starting to think “humans” is probably the best inclusive-group-greeting phrase. Or maybe “earthlings”.

xlevus10:10:14

but then you're excluding the pre-coffee people

xlevus10:10:56

"organisms" would be more inclusive. It also includes peoples gut fauna, lice, infections, and anybody pre-coffee

pupeno10:10:51

korny: as soon as we have humans born in space, earthlings would be discriminatory.

pupeno10:10:22

I gather humans born not on earth are not earthlings, rigth?

korny10:10:58

I like “organisms”. “humans” means I’d struggle with future workmates who happen to be uplifted hamsters or whatever.

korny10:10:50

I’d say humans who get naturalised on another planet may or may not be earthlings, depending on whether we allow dual citizenship.

pupeno10:10:59

Yay! Password reset working simple_smile

korny10:10:02

Password is now “hunter2” ?

pupeno10:10:52

korny: I mean, my reset password implementation in an SPA.

korny10:10:13

Ah simple_smile SPA and security is a fun fun mix

pupeno10:10:40

korny: sortof. You just need to implement all the security at the API level, which you should anyway.

korny10:10:26

it’s just surprising how often people don’t do that. simple_smile

pupeno10:10:15

I’m even happy publishing the API UI as it should be safe enough: https://ninjatools.herokuapp.com/api/index.html

agile_geek10:10:42

If we settled on “Morning carbon-based life forms” I’d be happy. I just hate those silicon-based life forms anyway. They should have a segregated slack channel.

pupeno10:10:28

I, for one, welcome our new silicon-based overlords.

xlevus10:10:37

@agile_geek: discriminatory elementalist facist!

xlevus10:10:40

(but really, those silicone dudes, total jerks. Keep giving me pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicicavolcaniconisiosis with all their sneezing)

mccraigmccraig10:10:45

@agile_geek: what about plasma-based and wave-based lifeforms, you atomist

agile_geek10:10:51

@xlevus: sh! They’ll hear you

agile_geek10:10:33

@mccraigmccraig: to be honest they have no material impact on me.

mccraigmccraig10:10:50

@agile_geek: well don't come crying to me if you get washed in solar plasma

xlevus11:10:43

You could always say "Good morning <insult>s ,<insult>s and <insult>s" and discriminate against everybody equally.
