I usually go for about five to seven days and have two days to just mess around (grab a camera and go visit some rundown but historical area... which is not actually all that safe or wise).

got a Git question ๐Ÿ˜„ So I recreated a react-native project from scratch and copied code over from the main repo. Now what I usually do is to `git init` the new project and then merge from the upstream main repo with the `--allow-unrelated-histories` (or whatever than argument was). Then after solving all the merge issues I merge again on master and go back to working with the origin, but might end up with a few unused files which will be hard to chase down.

My goal is to merge the new repo in the main one
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
ohh
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
yeah okay have never done that
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
also why?

why not just make a branch in the original repo?

don't want to lose history because the new react-native app doesn't have one

if you're going to merge the new repo into the old repo why do you need a new repo?
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
so basically I will lose all the history for my existing code on that branch
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
no because most of my code is the same

it's just some react native configurations that changed

Add your repo as another remote in the other repo, and set a new base branch that is not โ€œmasterโ€

then you can pull master from origin1 and merge it into your dev branch, then push to origin2

Basically don't use 2 repos when you can use 1

You can โ€œmergeโ€ 2 repos into one by adding a new remote, making a new branch not named master in one of them, and push + pull it into the other repo
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
yea, that's how I wanted to refer to the main repo as an "upstream" remote
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h

Is this to be able to update your app later on?

hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
and now it works after I created a new rn project with the CLI
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
you can always generate patch files and apply them on your customized repo, without the multiple origin complications and having to rename your base branch
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
It's probably super annoying to be unable to use โ€œmasterโ€
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
yea, I don't want that
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
I'll try something now and get back ๐Ÿ˜„
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
For updating only I guess you can always git pull origin2 master
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
sort the merge conflicts and you're updated
hidden for non-membersin #_coders20h
And still use the master branch

I don't know for sure, but I'd guess that LinkedIn does not want to make it easy for people to switch to having their online work profile on Upwork rather than LinkedIn. I do remember hearing that they are very protective of the profile data.

w00t I just got the cost of membership in this community paid back to me many, many times over as I just got an Upwork project offer at 160% of my old rate, a rate so much higher it would've taken me maybe years to feel comfortable charging it. and all thanks to the advice of a NL member (<@U3AA7AWBX>).

Awesome! There are still a lot of countries where big chunk of devs are underpaid just because they don't know better.
hidden for non-membersin #___general14h
the thing is, in my case at least, I suspect a 'secret ingredient' is that I was able to just list my higher rate and wait for clients to come to me. I think if I was sending out proposals at this rate and was desperate for money, the higher rate wouldn't work. But that's just a guess. So basically I suspect there's more to it than just, "Make the number bigger", you need to be in a situation where you can afford to wait for the best clients.

and also my reputation on Upwork is maxed out, I suspect someone with a lower reputation would not be able to just increase their rate and automatically see better results.

Question for those who use backpackers / cheaper accomodation a bit -- my wife and I are trying to work out what kind of luggage we should take for a year in Europe.

Normally we'd get away with 35-40L, but we're taking climbing gear with us next year so we are really pushing out our carrying to the max. How big is too big when staying in hostels? We've been warned to only take a single backpack with us a lot of times. Can we take 70L? 80L? Is this actually a concern or maybe not so much?

siiekhsvmmtmarfu You just transfer funds into an IRA account. But, be sure the contribution is tax deductible before you contribute (assuming that's a priority). The IRA folks will let anyone open an account and make a contribution. But their willingness to take your funds doesn't mean the contribution is deductible. You need to check the rules on deductibility as they apply to your particular situation. Some folks can't take the deduction.

Anyone doing a solo/self 401K ? Iโ€™m really intrigued by the idea of being able to pay your own employer match if self employed.
hidden for non-membersin #_money3h
Since youโ€™re also the โ€œemployerโ€ in your business, you can make a matching contribution to the plan. You can contribute as much as 25% of your net income as a profit-sharing contribution.
hidden for non-membersin #_money3h
The maximum amount that you can contribute to a solo 401(k), from both individual and employer contributions, is $54,000 for 2017.

hidden for non-membersin #_taxes-us2h
uugvdplcnidhincp I've never had a traditional IRA so I haven't paid much attention to the rules. But I'd suggest asking your tax preparer - 1. Do you have sufficient "earned" income to contribute? I can't recall what is/isn't "earned" income and don't know how K-1 income is categorized. 2. Is there any reason not to combine the funds with the rollover funds (i.e. constraints on rolling into new employer plan)? My sense is that both of those small issues warrant checking.

If I would move to a certain place long-term and ask the company to change my address on all formal stuff, HR might complain after a couple of months, but there is no problem living as digital nomad at GitLab and getting the salary that you were being recruited for.

Yeah, I don't have windscreen anymore so I would probably wrap some red tape (so it's easy to see) around my gloves or some other part of motorcycle.

Hardly any workable cafes (no coffee culture at all), the cafes that are there have power sockets glued shut, if there's a hipster cafe they won't let you work htere (coffee only), coworking spaces are 12 months minimum mostly, slow/capped 4G for foreigners, no phone service allowed for foreigners, difficult to impossible to make friends (no English) etc. But absoluteyl AMAZING for short travel but impossible to work. Many before you have tried, few have succeeded.

Yesterday, I totaled my car on a Tinder date.

I was driving with a gal Iโ€™d met near Wellington to head on a hike, when the transmission went kaput and I had to pull off. No one was hurt and it was quite anti-climatic. Turns out, the cost of replacing the trans was more than the cost of my vehicle๏ฟผ.

So, I bought a new car and sold the old one to a tow yard for only a fraction of what I paid for it six months ago. Fun times. This is why I have an emergency fund.

Iโ€™d say the default model up from the base config. Also easily available from resellers when they run a promo. So unless your gonna keep it a long time and need a particular config that is Build to Order, thatโ€™s probably the sweet spot.
That all said - what are you going to do on it?
