When I look at Slack Engineeringโ€™s flowchart on whether to send notifications or not (and cutting back on its gargantuan memory usage), I canโ€™t help but wonder whether any of this should have been built on top of XMPP somehow and written in a language other than JavaScript

It seems a lot of software is a never-ending cycle of finding solutions to problems that shouldnโ€™t exist

Or were largely solved a decade ago

As a general rule, if someone honours me with an invitation to their , I always accept. Weddings are so special and sorta magical. I am thrilled every time.

So far I've seen a bit of the national archaelogical museum in and a few famous spots outside. First impression is that all the best stuff is outside. Museums are not as interesting as the ruins and places to see. Tomorrow is all about the /cc @superruserr

I went and looked up the video @halcy mentioned. So cool! You donโ€™t think REAL architecture skills would be valuable in minecraft. But they totally are. What this guy does in is pretty amazing. He clearly had help though. He could never have figured out water AND fireplaces in his first 2 hours. Iโ€™m sure skeletons on the job site are not one of his usual challenges. :) (youtu.be/6XFINpi72Nw)

As smart as this is (Iโ€™m not smarter), the analysis seems totally overwrought. plan to to sell music, apps, movies, and services that havenโ€™t even been invented yet for the life of the device.

TIL that if you use on , you pay per metric. ($0.30/month). So if you turn on something like Telegraf's 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.
