I'll say this publicly, one time and one time only: If I have blocked you, there is a good reason. If you even *look* like you're trolling me or acting in bad faith, I'm not going to think twice about it. If I ask for clarification on something and you instead attack my skill set, that's kinda the definition of trolling.
Introduction Show more
Mid-30s, intolerant of bullies, bigots, and privilege-touting people. Does consulting over the Internet for the occasional buck, when I can.
Things I am/know:
If I've helped you out in some way and you would like to show appreciation, please leave me a tip. My Bitcoin address is above.
#Bitcoin node is experiencing difficulty.
Gonna need to figure that out at some point today. Kinda hard to test an API client when the server's responding "I'm busy, leave me be."
What an dingbat server #bitcoind can be. Are there any other well-known, locally-running, full-node implementations available which present an API? And can ideally use bitcoind's data as a starting point?
Was there some reason that #Tor could not have fixed things, instead of making them worse with v3 names?
There is now quite virtually no chance for memorable names. Not intentionally, anyway. They’re simply too long.
Is it time to rethink the #onion overlay, to try to bring usability and high-security together?
The State Motto of #Georgia should be "Georgia: Taking rights away one law at a time."
What a backwards state I live in.
Same passes a law requiring #recess, because we're retarded and need such a thing.
Governor signs the first, vetoes the second.
How is it that #humanrights are still a thing being actively denied, here, in 2019, by law, in (admittedly one of the worst) a US state?
Bill Nye: "The planet's on fscking fire!" Show more
"The planet's on fucking fire!"
For example, a simple, standard availability domain requires a minimum of two servers, both running DNS, SMTP, HTTP, and possibly XMPP. Add SIP and that’s one more server. Make it high-availability, then double the number of servers.
So a minimum cost/mo is something like $10–$30 per month, and that’s assuming self-administration. Add in the administrator’s time, and it goes up quite a bit.
At scale things become cheap and people love gratis, and so they think anything at-cost is too much.
Whenever I hear someone complain about a #gratis service, I wonder if they'd actually pay the amount the service costs to use it.
I think the answer is most often no.
I have missed so much stuff just due to being stuck at home. I need to take advantage of my limited supply of pain-free time to try to finish my product so that I can hopefully sell it and make enough to be able to afford to remain pain free.
I don’t want to go back to pain. I remember when pain free was normal and I thought nothing of it. Now I appreciate every pain-free minute I can, and having been reintroduced to a pain-free state... I desperately want to hold on to it. Desperately.
YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!! #Lucifer comes back May 8!!
Re: that last boost.
Yeah, going from having relief to not is dangerous to the mind. It is awful. Nobody should have to feel it. But it is all too common, and such a person cannot be faulted for making themselves an exit, should they be able to do so.
I think that for most of us, we cannot craft that exit.
Programmer and uncomfortable pain in the ass. Fluent in more programming languages than I can list, most happy in C and C++. If I’ve helped, please tip. Thanks!
