Docker is an attack on computing freedom
The purpose of Docker is not, in fact, to make things easier for us as systems administrators. It's to make it easier for the folks writing and packaging software to force you to treat the software as a black box instead of making their software easier to build, configure, and use.
I don't care if you find Docker more convenient as an open source user or developer. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance, and you're being lazy.

Wer schon immer mal wie in den 1980-Jahren über ein Terminal an einem IBM-Mainframe arbeiten wollte, kann das in der Ausstellung von https://twitter.com/promovicz/ auf dem #VCFB2019 ausprobieren. https://vcfb.de/2019/ausstellungen.html#mainframes
Für Cray-Fans hält @stiefkind auf dem #VCFB2019 den fünften Teil seiner Vortragsreihe zum Leben und Werk von Seymour Cray. https://vcfb.de/2019/vortraege_workshops.html#cray-3. Die vorherigen Teile könnt ihr auf http://media.ccc.de sehen. https://media.ccc.de/search/?q=Wolfgang+Stief #vintagecomputing
I've been building Flóðgátt, a replacement streaming API server for Mastodon. The goal is to cut RAM usage and make hosting an instance that much cheaper.
So far, we've cut RAM for the streaming server of an empty instance by ~94.2%
The next task is to make sure that lower RAM usage can scale without other issues (e.g., CPU).
To do that, I need a test server with enough connections to see how Flóðgátt performs under load.
That's where y'all come in: can you please follow @codesections ?
Es ist offiziell! Ich bin goetzhoffart auf Keybase: https://keybase.io/goetzhoffart/sigchain#12fb11a582c020b0e2142ee71b856a3c7edcd6d41a8d2860c35bc382e4f2a8050f
#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.
It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.
It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.
It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.
It's not how e-mail should work.
Consider dropping GMail.
Things I liked about 80's/90's computing:
- Total control over my hardware
- Software that worked with me, not against me
- Superior aesthetics (yeah I said it :3 )
- Overall sense of promise and freedom
Things I like about computing today:
- Easy and open access to knowledge
- Insane amounts of storage
- The sheer computing POWERRRR
Now if only we could make these attributes come together instead of being period exclusive.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
