@joelfernandes agree it be nice if I can setup two servers to fail back and forth were one will mirror the other. I think I could get the database to mirror but the application with all the images not sure how to pull that off. I thought about running symcthing on the application side and setup the database to mirror. Then I could failover with dns. two issues is I haven't had time to test it and secondly syncthing is a heavy load itself. Still might mess with it if I get time.

Working on a sekrit project. Something about being able to build kernel modules without a dependency on Linux kernel header deb packages..

Preempting the FUD 

I'm sure that finding malware in some npm package will be used as a reason to declare that FOSS, or open source, is no good and doesn't work and that it all needs to be taken over by someone with a Business Plan.

Actually this shows that public software works as intended. Someone, eventually, read the source code and found a problem. That doesn't happen in the proprietary world, where malware can exist indefinitely without detection or correction.

At some point, self-driving cars will go a route just to ensure you see certain stores or billboards, the real world equivalent of a pop ad.

Moving in December is not a bad idea. I just happen to do it by chance. Turns out movers and trucks are much cheaper as well, this time around.

@nm one thing that sucks about not being on the same Mastodon server as you, is that you get a local timeline of that instance but I don't.. so in a sense you get to see all linuxrocks activity filtered out and possibly discover other like-minded people and they discover you

I asked my wife to create a Mastodon profile for herself. She created "@WifeOfAGeek". 😂


The original server operated by the Mastodon gGmbH non-profit
