@dansup Interesting! I'm not very familiar with the modern PHP landscape, but at a glance this looks like a Heroku-type deployment method but with your own (virtual) hardware. Is that a fair assessment?

@dansup Zero downtime deploys are the shit.

My current job uses Unicorn's built in forking method, but I've also used Amazon's container service to achieve similar results.

What system are you using for Pixelfed.social?

My daughter's advent calendar this year features a Lego set divided up into 24 parts that she can assemble in the run-up to Christmas.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, we'll see tomorrow what she thinks 😁

@hay thanks! I had a blast making it and learned so much about the process.

I'm already dreaming up my next project, it'll probably be a prop from a videogame, maybe a Destiny 2 piece?

I've got some chicken Rogan Josh and Koren-style pork chops on the go for this week's meal prep.

Not shown: rice for the curry and roasted sweet potato and Brussels sprouts for the pork.

It smells amazing in here.

I posted some photos of Zoe's finished Wonder Woman costume on the blog: costumedad.com/post/wonder-wom

Update! I've been writing up my progress on a blog. Check out the posts on costumedad.com if you want to read about the ins and outs of making this costume.

I've been making lots of progress on the costume, but I hit a snag last night.

I was going to paint everything using Krylon Colormaster, but after spraying a test piece I realized that it cracked like crazy when flexed 😧

Tonight I'm going to make an emergency trip to the art supply shop and pick up some heavy body acrylics that should stand up to flexing much better 🤞

@dansup ah, here it is. You can give a single remote multiple pushurls: stackoverflow.com/a/14290145

@dansup I remember reading ages ago that you can set git up to push to two remotes simultaneously.

That said, these days I bet you could use a post-commit hook to trigger an automated pull from the mirror itself.

Just a small update today: I roughly trimmed off the excess base foam around the top and bottom trim with a knife, then sanded it flush with my rotary tool.

Next up is figuring out how it's going to fasten when my daughter wears it. After that it'll finally be ready to paint!

All glued up! The armour is still pinned to the dummy for now while the contact cement cures overnight.

I have to trim some parts (esp. either side of the eagle's head) but after that it'll be time for some paint!

In the second photo you can also see the details now that I've given it a once over with the heat gun. After painting and weathering they'll look even more pronounced.

Detail is all scored in. You likely can't see the cuts in this picture, but once I've hit it with the heat gun they'll open up to give an effect similar to the second picture.

Here's the final trim. I'm going to mark the edges then unpin everything so I can clean up the main piece before detailing it.

Here's the lower trim all glued up. I'll pin it to the armour later today!

I forgot to take pictures but I cut out the basic shapes for the lower trim this evening.

Tomorrow they'll get glued together and pinned to the dummy so that I can plan the armour detail.

Wonder Woman armour base pieces are now assembled, and I've cut out the eagle design that's going to go around the top. Tomorrow I'll work on the bottom trim, and start on the armour detail itself if I have time.

@deutrino there's no hard and fast rule that controller names or methods have to match paths, but I'd say it's true about 75% of the time at least
