my experience with minimalist activitypub servers was that you kind of need those extra things like server retries and then you're not so minimal anymore.

seeing right-wingers lose their shit over china online is fucking hilarious. it's like watching a tiny chihuahua tied up in the neighbor's yard bouncing up and down and yapping itself hoarse at a passing truck

re: software dev gripe 

@garbados fair, but there is a fine balance here somewhere.

the flipside is a #sysadmin like myself having to learn the 27th new Node toolchain just to deploy a thing because the 3rd party developers on the project "decided they want to try this cool new framework out".

and of course they dump the code on my lap, no documentation, no deployment procedure, "it works on our dev machines".

and then I have to support it for the next 5 years, while they move on, like locusts.
