“Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution.” — Clay Shirky

To expand on that: I'm starting to build up a little flock of servers as I get less burned out on tech, and since my skills rusted a good deal, I'm kinda-sorta building it from the ground up with a fair amount of conceptual muscle memory from literally 25 years of using Linux.

And man, I started down the road of using mostly software that comes in the package manager, and building my shit old school.

I'm fine with this, having had a taste of all the newfangled API-key ways of doing things.

tired: back up your webshits to Google Drive using 1 or more API keys to do it

wired: sftp + logrotate + Amazon Glacier if you really need it (you don't)

I just finally pulled the trigger on a $220 order of components to begin teaching myself electronics while building ✨ lamps ✨

this would probably be way too much except that I already know what I want to build, so a sizeable chunk of the $total was taken up by LED modules (and another big portion was basic stuff like solder, hookup wire, breadboard etc)

Remember Turbo SIMs? It‘s what we used to make iPhones SIM-/Carrier lock free when there was no jailbreak available. Predominantly used in the

iPhone 3GS as a piggy-back SIM that mocked the carrier ID to the phone.

Yes, you had to physicslly cut the mini-SIM plastic away to make room for the chip and very carefully slot the tray into the phone. Worked great back then.

I still have a few unused ones. :-)

@velartrill I know :FeelsLifeMan:

I keep doing webshit because my brain is able to do it in a wider array of post-tech-burnout states than programming

Google memories (14/14) 

@dmbaturin not true. plenty of minority lects (languages+dialects) survived for millennia in extensive pancultural networks, coexisting with lingua francas. multilingualism is the norm for premodern societies (cf. Amazon, Australia, PNG etc.); monolingualism is a late European anomaly.

what creates monolingualism isn’t global communication, it’s monocultural colonisation. what kills lects isn’t knowing a lingua franca; it’s when you are ashamed to teach children your own.

However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately.
Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on and starting June 30, 2020.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.

If a #fedi instance with 200K users can't find a way to keep running, then it's probably a good idea to shut it down.

And Mastodon (which the instance in question is running) has a decent account migration feature now, so it's easy for those users to move to different instances.
