Waiting to see how many tone-deaf tech companies run a joke on their website tomorrow, April 1. Bonus points if the joke is COVID-19 related.

@Tayo I haven't listened to it yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I was rocking a Handspring, a similar device designed and built by some of the original Palm I team.

I think this will be my last round of Folding@Home contributions. While I have CPU cycles to spare, the GPU workloads make my primary computer unusable and that seems to be all that's available. The other computers I'm running are just wasting electricity siting idle.

Well that's frustrating. Amazon is delaying shipping an order in favor of shipping more essential items to others, and they won't let me cancel. I'm all for making food, medicine, and other important items a priority, but don't hold my order hostage.

Seems like there are only GPU workloads available from Folding@Home. Too bad the client won't recognize this old Quadro without the (long unsupported) proprietary Nvidia drivers.

@billy Some of my problems are probably related to the AWS version, but we've had loads of problems with indices filling up, and it mysteriously stops accepting data over time. The company is garbage and has been threatening their own customers, plus it's no longer truly open source/free software. We're getting rid of it as soon as we have time to implement an alternative.

Rueing the day I decided to implement Elastic search to store log data.

@PaulFranz I was originally going to migrate from GitHub, but all the nonsense with the user tracking and now this, I'll just stay put.

I favor proprietary software over open core. At least they're honest about their intentions.

Looking for a #remote #job in #python and #django? It would be part time, some 20 hours a week, you set your own hours.

Message me for details if interested.

Being reminded that package/dependency management is a rolling dumpster fire regardless of what operating system you use.

If you would have told me five years ago I would be sitting here reading management books, I wouldn't have believed it. 🤷‍♂️

Every time I browse the federated timeline, I end up blocking a handful of domains.

: weechat (IRC/Matrix), Newsboat (RSS), Firefox Nightly, Podboat (podcasts).

My takeaway from the actix controversy is that Reddit is pure, unadulterated garbage.

@jordan31 Not at all. I'm not using GoatCounter. It's free for personal use, and offers the basic web stats I'm interested in. goatcounter.com/

On the plus side, in spite of my issues with git submodules, I've replaced Google Analytics on my personal blog with something more privacy focused and tracker free.

Getting my periodic reminder that git submodules, while useful in some situations, are a pain in the butt to manage.
