Pinned toot

Now that I'm an adult I no longer want to do the cool shit I couldn't do as a kid.

In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.

And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

You want to convince me you're an ass?

Use the phrase "just virtue signaling."

They also invented the cdr.

Is "full stack" what they call a switch in the web dev world?

No I don't mean the network kind.

On the roof of a taxi at night
Glows a lonely beckoning light
The cabin of the asphalt steamboat
Calls to me and my worn-out raincoat

(Freely translating Hande)

OH: "I think that coat's a little over the top." "Most coats go over the top."

Imagine a full datacenter rack cabinet. Mostly the machines have been mounted neatly on rails with cable management arms and velcro, systematically placing the IEC power leads on alternating sides.

The top 3U or so of the rack is a clusterfuck of fibers, UTP, and mains cables hanging out in a kinky ball of loops.

Now think, my dear disciples, in which part of the rack are you going to be replacing a switch today?
