So, Microsoft's Azure outage was caused by a failure of a third-party's DNS (CenturyLink), which resulted in the automated deletion of customer data....
This isn't a failure of a system, this is complete, total failure of any common sense. Also a complete failure to do any real design work at all.
Remember folks, you can't spell "fragile" without "agile"
Trying out Whalebird on my chromebook.
The "slack-like" interface is more efficient than the many columns of Subway Tooter for multiple accounts.
The New Toot window does not follow theme, and is not resizable.
It's slow. Like really, really, annoyingly slow. I'm guessing it's an electron thing. I've never had an app lag so badly on this device.
I would really love to try out Mastalab. It has a lot of features I like, including some not available in Subway Tooter.
Problem is, I almost exlusively use tablets and a chromebook, and Mastalab does not support either, can't even install it.
What is it about Android app devs that they intentionally exclude tablets and other larger screen devices?

That feeling when you boot up your computer in the morning, and it just flashes a message and shuts down again.
Seems there was a bit of an oversight with grub (shim) updates and compatibility with machines having an older uefi system.
Not an auspicious way to start a Monday.
I did get it booted, just a pain to get it fixed.
Wow, so I didn't mean that I got sick from taking the flu shot. You're supposed to feel a bit tired the day after as your body gears up and makes antibodies.
JFC, get vaccinated, do your part to keep society as a whole healthy.
The closest I've ever come to dying was a few years ago, with a particularly nasty case of the flu.
My chromebook just updated to Chrome OS 70. (beta channel)
I *hate* it.
Like, die in a fire hate it.
No more individual notifications in the status bar, just a circle with the number of outstanding notifications. So, now I can't tell at a glance *what* is trying to notify me, and thus, can't tell how important it is. And the persistent notifications for things like outside temperature are now completely useless.
69 made me so happy with Linux app support, now this dumpster fire.
Watching the slack messages go by for a project involving three different teams setting up systems for a fourth team. Where none of the three teams have actually dedicated any time to the project, and none really care much. So it's messages thrown back and forth between their other tasks, usually hours between.
I figure the systems should be built and available some time in 2021. 🤦♂️ 🤷♂️
