I think I have finally figured out how to filter out spam almost completely with my contact form. Since I use BunnyCDN for MailyGo instead of Cloudflare, as I do for my websites, the number of spam submissions increased first (since BunnyCDN doesn’t block bots), despite using a honeypot. But now I have implemented a blacklist function with “forbidden” words (which contains the words “casino” and “gambling” by default) and haven’t received any spam since. Sometimes the solution to a complex problem can be so simple.
“Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell” is a YouTube channel that explains different topics in short videos in a clear and easy to understand way. The videos are also visually works of art:
We are a small team who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.
In this video they explain the coronavirus and what everyone can and should do.
Today I took the chance, as long as it is still possible to leave the house, and used the good weather to run a little. Only 4.5 km and not very fast, because my fitness is on a pretty low level at the moment. But I realized how important this exercise is, especially at a time when you only leave the house to go grocery shopping. Running in particular is an uncritical way to do sports. You can do it alone and you can keep enough distance from other people. And one advantage: it can be really challenging.
I admit it is the first time I am writing code that is almost 100% covered by unit tests. But it’s such a good feeling to have small, concise methods whose functionality you can rely on. Even before I have a running application, I know that what is already written will work. And unit testing with Go is really fun.
