Hey Internet, can you do your magic please?

I’ve lost my ID card at Stansted Airport on the 28th of May.

My first name is Merle, I’m from Germany and on my picture I’m looking like a pothead.

If you found it, please get in touch with me and let me know where I can pick it up.

A time traveller from the 2000's visits a modern software company

guide: web browsing.

traveller: ...you fukken wat mate?

S3 Support will be shipping soon.

We are taking a different approach, storing all media locally until its transcoded/post-processed and then upload to S3. After 24 hours or so local media will be purged.

We will also ship a tool to move local media to the cloud or vice versa.

A few benefits:
- Object storage is cheap, you can increase account storage limits.
- Resilient, Wasabi outages do not affect new uploads.
- Redundancy, a future release will include support for multiple CDNs and the ability to serve photos and videos on different CDNs.

In case you don't know what I'm talking about re: Sinclair Broadcast Group, here's a twitter link with a video that demonstrates my point really well.

And here's an article in the new york times that explains in more detail: nytimes.com/2018/04/02/busines

"This is extremely dangerous to our democracy."

(And yet Twitter, and the NYT are nearly as big a part of the problem as sinclair.)

I think about this a lot, but I don't know what to do about it beyond becoming the journalists.

And in a time when journalists are attacked on a regular basis, jailed, fined, intimidated, and punished, all while making less money than ever to reach an audience that's smaller than ever while relying on the benevolence of their corporate owners to keep them afloat, becoming the journalists doesn't sound super appealing.

I don't want to plug https://wordsmith.social/ too hard, but I am immensely proud of bagging the domain for the purpose of providing a federated blogging instance.

🎉 New Year’s resolution: Become less dependent on services like Dropbox, Twitter, Google, etc. Use open, decentralised and/or self-hosted alternatives instead. First stop: #FEDIVERSE! Find me on 🐘 Mastodon: @sjockers vis.social/@sjockers
