I was drawn to programming, science, technology and science fiction
ever since I was a little kid. I can't say it's because I wanted to
make the world a better place. Not really. I was simply drawn to it
because I was drawn to it. Writing programs was fun. Figuring out how
nature works was fascinating. Science fiction felt like a grand
Then I started a software company and poured every ounce of energy
into it. It failed. That hurt, but that part is ok. I made a lot of
mistakes and learned from them. This experience made me much, much

Export and import GitHub labels between projects by running JavaScript in the browser console to automate clicks.

* Inspired by @MoOx original script:
* Adds file download per @micalevisk
* Changes include:
* - Get the description from the `title` attribute instead of `aria-label` (doesn't exist anymore)
* - Use style.backgroundColor and parse the rgb(...) to hex (rather than regex parsing of 'style' string)
* - Downloads labels to a JSON file named after the webpage to know which GitHub repo they came from.

Don't use VPN services.

Don't use VPN services.

No, seriously, don't. You're probably reading this because you've asked what VPN service to use, and this is the answer.

Note: The content in this post does not apply to using VPN for their intended purpose; that is, as a virtual private (internal) network. It only applies to using it as a glorified proxy, which is what every third-party "VPN provider" does.

  • There's also this article about VPN services, which is honestly better written (and has more cat pictures!) than my article.

Make it real

Ideas are cheap. Make a prototype, sketch a CLI session, draw a wireframe. Discuss around concrete examples, not hand-waving abstractions. Don't say you did something, provide a URL that proves it.

Ship it

Nothing is real until it's being used by a real user. This doesn't mean you make a prototype in the morning and blog about it in the evening. It means you find one person you believe your product will help and try to get them to use it.
