a title-less note, like a tweet
We've been wanting a specific mattress from a specific store; it's often OOS. I poked around the browser Network tab & figured out the URL to hit (& a header value it requires) to automate checking every 5 min. My little Node app stopped working after two weeks. While debugging, I went back to the site manually. Figured the header value timed-out after 15 days or something... I was refreshing and digging in DevTools for minutes, it was definitely not working... all the while I'm failing to notice that the dang thing is in stock. I should be clicking the Buy button, not debugging my little app!
Some days, Stack Exchange just has exactly what one needs. (If one needs to start adding .gpg repo keys the new safer way, and doesn't really know what they're doing...)
