Yay. Glad to be back. Had to post my selfies and holiday photos on twitter.
It seems a lot of software is a never-ending cycle of finding solutions to problems that shouldn’t exist
Or were largely solved a decade ago
Morning Laud on Friday, 14 September 2018:
That passeth among them that have set up as dung for the truth, all austere discipline, compassion and forgiveness, no doubt. The sword, that our fathers would not decrease. I spake unto him, and said to vivakarman the undying fire in the wilderness; and i will offer him a sacrificeworth being heard.... Guru: my mind, my hopes are fulfilled. Wine.
I like this so much that I am subtooting it in addition to boosting it.
Hey, here's a little Python script I wrote! https://alexschroeder.ch/cgit/mastodon-blocker/about/
I went and looked up the video @halcy mentioned. So cool! You don’t think REAL architecture skills would be valuable in minecraft. But they totally are. What this guy does in #minecraft is pretty amazing. He clearly had help though. He could never have figured out water AND fireplaces in his first 2 hours. I’m sure skeletons on the job site are not one of his usual challenges. :) (https://youtu.be/6XFINpi72Nw)
As smart as this is (I’m not smarter), the analysis seems totally overwrought. #Apple plan to to sell music, apps, movies, and services that haven’t even been invented yet for the life of the device. Longer life == more profit. They’re changing from a hardware to services model. “Software will eat the world.” http://www.asymco.com/2018/09/13/lasts-longer/
“Today, in a vote that split almost every major EU party, Members of the European Parliament adopted every terrible proposal in the new Copyright Directive and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the internet: text messages like tweets and Facebook updates; photos; videos; audio; software code -- any and all media that can be copyrighted.”
TIL that if you use #CloudWatch on #AWS, you pay per metric. ($0.30/month). So if you turn on something like Telegraf's #MySQL monitoring, it will create 336 metrics suddenly flowing into CloudWatch. And that will generate $100/month of needless charges unless you nip it in the bud.
They also charge $3/month per dashboard. So get it done with one dashboard, not many.
