When you live at the end of a dead-end road and have only one neighbor... you learn a lot about the Amazon Prime delivery truck routing algorithms (and how much work they need).
It's at least a once-a-week occurrence that we get a prime truck flying through our driveway pulling a fast turnaround with no deliveries to be made.
And we're 1/3 of a mile beyond the next closest house - so you know that the routing is doing some real funky A* on those drivers. :)
So I finally decided to stick with GoatCounter. Plausible is really nice but has too many moving parts for my setup. GoatCounter is a single binary and can be backed by SQLite which is perfect for the very low volume of my website.
Considering features, for my use case both tools seemed pretty identical but I feel plausible can do a bit more advanced stuff than GC.
In other news - Deno keeps looking better and better: https://deno.land/posts/v1.7
The top feature is also the one that is most interesting to me - compiling static binaries that include a runtime (and optionally certs, and of course permissions). Nice!

Honestly... Cryptocurrency just seems like a bunch of stocks tracking the potential for cryptocurrency, rather than actually being used for anything else to their purpose.
I don't know of we've moved the needle at all towards an actually useful currency, but I'll take my money and donate it to something when the market turns.
@killyourfm You doing alright? Haven't seen a post in a few days... maybe you decided to just totally disconnect for fake Christmas! :)
Finally got around to listening to EP 43: Course Correction - appreciate your honesty and willingness to share. Keep up the good work (wherever you're podcasting)!
Again - I want things like Flatpak and Snap to succeed! But I have to wonder if developers realize that a broad majority of us consumers may sometimes (or semi-permanently) be on slow (< 10 Mbps) internet connections.
I can deal with running updates overnight every once in a while if there are a massive amount of updates, but the fact that they're now duplicated (or triplicated) by flatpak / snap is just frustrating.
More flatpak grumbling... so even after I went through the process of installing some utterly massive base packages to get just one or two packages to run, there happen to be updates to those base packages (as expected!). This means I'm looking at downloading up to 2.9 GB just to get system updates. There _has_ to be a better way to do this.
