#signsandcodes, sure feels like the day for intros, no? We've also got @Weaktwos joining us; also a friend of @likethebird and @melodyg, and a friend of mine of too many years to remember. We're growing a lot here, but it's in no small part because conventional social media, especially FB, is becoming an unwelcoming place.
And another #signsandcodes welcome in order to @melodyg, another friend of mine of many, many years and another tremendous human being. She and I are already friends with @likethebird which should help her introduction here, but recommendations of others to follow are more than welcome.
#signsandcodes should bid a warm welcome to @likethebird, my dear old friend, a highly talented singer-songwriter, and great human being. I think everyone would enjoy her company, but I suspect @epilanthanomai, @Stronae, @Geekgenesis, and @scalene might especially enjoy following.
Software developer self care is also fixing horrible error messages that make you lose so much time to avoid being bitten by it again and avoid other failing into this too.
Remember: if something is hard to debug, it's 95% of the time because you don't have the good information because it's not given to you.
Like good documentation, good errors messages save HOURS to so much people while it's not the funniest thing to do, it's one of the most important.

Update from the #signsandcodes admins: we noticed an outage this morning and were able to remediate the issue. Seems our root file system was choking on its own log files. Things are back up, and we're looking into how to slow the growth in the future. Thanks for your patience!
