Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


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.

Doing some webdev at work and finding the ORM is immediately getting in the way.
I just want my SQL features

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.

Lifehack: Route your telecon audio through a DAW so you can apply compression and de-essing to the group.

Finally I can hear the quiet person and not get blown out of the water by the loud person.

I wonder what the roads would be like if dangerous driving was treated the same way as attempted murder.

Motivation for this toot brought to you buy the massive arsehole with the noisy car that's been speeding up and down the road all day.

Are there any users of here?

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.

Got a new phone and I've been having issues missing texts
Turns out it's android's fault

Found the api call to get geo location data on my local public transport network.
Wondering if there's a way to make that data useful
