kubernetes has two moods: "wow this is really nice I can orchestrate huge changes safely and it's all very easy to keep track of" and "i wish only for the death of modern enterprise computing and the ability to run into the woods to live as a hermit, living off the land, forever free from this torment"

> As well as cancelling his Spotify subscription and taking down most of his music catalogue, [Sameer Gupta is] now encouraging others to do the same by offering a 95-percent discount on his "entire Bandcamp" to "anyone else who is cancelling their Spotify." "This has been a long time coming anyway but the Spotify CEO's desire to invest in war AI tech was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back," Gupta told RA.


I just realized that if you capitalize "minutes" after a number then it also retroactively capitalizes the numbers, even though that makes no sense because capital numbers don't exist.

No distro repos have ever told me that I'm not allowed to search for packages because their puny servers can't handle it...

% pip3 search xyz
RuntimeError: PyPI's XMLRPC API is currently disabled due to unmanageable load and will be deprecated in the near future.

What was it, again, that was so great about these centralized package repositories?

5120 new cases today, which is 25% higher than yesterday and also ~14% higher than the previous all time high.

Totally called this 3 weeks ago, but I'm no politician so I'm sure I don't understand the political complexities of making people socially distance and wear masks in public 🙄

I don't know who "Hendrick Acker" is, but apparently that's a name dutch people throw around in conversations?

I'm unsure if it's more of a John Smith, Jane Doe, or a Bob and Alice thing.

Which is the 2nd nap I took today. I've slept ~13 hours today

ah, perfect time for a 2½ hour nap in the midde of... uh.. 7 pm

I work with these units every day and it's actually impossible to know if a piece of software uses one or the other so I just assume all numbers have a 20% error margin

My girlfriend just asked me why her new 256GB SD card only had 238 "GB" storage when she opened it on her machine and I went on a 5 minute rant about how software developers are evil bastards who are willfully doing this bullshit 23 years after IEC fixed the problem of gigabytes vs gibibytes

An international organisation of 2.5 million nurses has filed for a UN investigation of human rights breaches by governments roadblocking vaccine patent waivers, and hence global access to vaccines:

We just noticed that Android 12 includes a much stricter implementation of "app-links":

Afaiu if you don't control a domain your app will never show up in the app chooser for a link to that domain. The user needs to explicitly setup your app for said domain deep in the settings.

This is super inconvenient for all the 3rd Part apps out there (i.e. NewPipe) or even alternative builds of 1st Party apps (F-Droid build of Wikipedia app).
