My new strategy for tackling the pile of unread books before buying new books!

I’ve stacked all my unread books against one wall.I’ve written each book’s name on a slip of paper and put them all in a jar.I pull one out of the jar and that’s what I read next. When I finish I’m then gonna move that book into a new stack of read books until there’s only one stack :DI might also write a rating/mini review on each slip of paper and keep them or make a collage.33 books in all… wish me luck! :DEdit: some common questions:Don’t you choose a book according to your mood etc in the moment? I’m super indecisive to the point where sometimes I won’t read at all because I can’t decide what to readDoesn’t it suck the joy out forcing yourself to read things? I’m pretty brutal, if I’m not enjoying something it’s gone. These are mostly books I’ve started once upon a time and enjoyed but life got in the way. I’ve had some up to 15 years and they’ve moved house with me etc. So I’m weirdly attached to them in a way. I wouldn’t force myself to read anything I hated.I’d love to do this but have too many unread books I’ve suggested to some people they could maybe divide them into themes and concentrate on one theme per month or something. Some people have suggested you don’t need a ‘game’ to read and for some people that might be true. However I genuinely struggle with finding time and motivation to read, even though I really enjoy it, it’s so much easier to just put the TV on or start playing solitaire. So anything that motivates me or makes it a bit more fun, is helpful for me 🙂 via /r/books https://ift.tt/2TQE5jK

Pet projects hosting

I plan on starting some new projects(mostly small stuff to just try out new features, new libraries/frameworks, maybe one project that could potentially be sold) and I’m wondering about hosting. I’d like to have something cheap(free if possible) to easily host some demos. Since on day to day basis I’m using Azure AppServices and SqlServer for work stuff, I’m wondering what’s a good, cheap alternative. Preferably something that I could later on scale(?) if the project grows.I’d like to start using Postgres and preferably dockerize my projects. Where do you host your DB? Do you use just a separate Docker container for DB and manage it yourself? Dedicated service? Any good resources on deploying simple apps with databases to DO or anything else? via /r/dotnet https://ift.tt/2TwYnOZ

I built an open-source Slack skin for Reddit!

Hey Slackers, meet Redackt! Inspired by pcottle’s MSOutlookit, I decided to build my own Slack-like skin for Reddit. Now you can pretend to be messaging your colleagues, while actually browsing your favorite subreddit. This was my first big project in React, but it was a lot of fun and taught me a lot. I’m also making it completely open source so you guys can help me make this a truly wonderful time-waster! I wanted to make it as functional as possible so I added stuff like:Dark ModeThreadsAdd/Remove SubsSearchLikes/GildingsI’d love your help with the issues that the app has, and you can get more info on the readMEDisclaimer: Obviously, I don’t own Reddit or Slack, just wanted to make something cool combining the two!See it hereGitHub RepoLet me know what you think or join me in building something awesome! via /r/Frontend https://ift.tt/2TsN5LH
