Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
Let me tell you about the last time I used RAID-5 in 4 disk array:
When one of my disks died a sudden death, I swiftly popped in a new one and kicked off the resync process, which took about 48 hours to complete.
14 minutes(!) after the resync finished a second disk died.
Lesson 1: RAID-5 is pretty useless. When a disk dies you have no more redundancy during the extremely stressful RAID recovery.
Lesson 2: RAID is not an alternative to backups.

Just checkin' :) Because I need a platform to ask feedback, and Twitter is just.... meh.
If a system centralised it's because there is a fundamental, unaddressed flaw in the federated experience that made centralisation more appealing
Ask what those flaws might be
think about why those flaws are unaddressed or devalued as flaws
Work to provide resolutions to those flaws
Don't complain that people chose centralisation.
Build a better experience in a federated context.
