It looks like, as of today, ... which literally runs off a couple of old servers bolted to the ceiling of the garage in my back yard ... will have better uptime than all of Facebook for 2021 :blobthinkingcool:

these days I understand why I'm a Process maximalist when it comes to developing any piece of non-trivial software: my neurobiology kinda mandates it, or else no software is going to get developed.

I also now understand that this strategy and certain other work-doing strategies don't mesh well.

for example, it's unlikely that a team with too many process minimalists, ronin coders, and/or chaos dependers is going to be a good fit for me, and that is very unlikely to ever change.

I finally deleted my google account :blobdab:

I’ve had this account for well over 10 years and had everything there. When I became more privacy-aware I deleted a lot of stuff from it and migrated to other services but I was finally able to delete it for good :blobcat:

Facebook forced troll farm content on over 40% of Americans each month

“One camp doesn’t realize the Pages are run by inauthentic actors… They tend to love these Pages. They like how entertaining the posts are and how they reaffirm their already-held beliefs.
