@nitox technically that's more of a predecessor. I guess it's quite a bit more complicated to get running compared to fleet, unfortunately.

I keep having these ideas of orchestrating systemd services across machines. Is there some kind of successor to github.com/coreos/fleet ?

Most tech interview processes optimize for the 1-5% of the work we fantasize we could spend more time on rather than the vast majority of what the job actually is.

We build teams hoping to do that 1-5% and giving little attention to the rest, then wonder how to fix that culture.

I would really like the culture of Rust to be one where you don't need to know the entire language in order to be credible. Rust is a big language (by design) and you don't need all of it be really, really productive (also by design). /1

I made a super simple CLI plotting thingy, reads numbers on stdin, draws svg to stdout. Just for seeing the shape of data. It's written in awk.

Sure you can ask a person who has lied to the US congress before to stop doing things, but how about you stop using said platform in any conceivable way, especially handing them money by buying ads or data by linking against their SDK?
