Happy to watch ZUckerber roast, however it's getting late in Europe, time to bed...

DigitalOcean FRA1 servers are down for 30 hours. Thirty!!! And they claim 99,99% SLA. I've thought they are the big player.
Lesson for today: ALWAYS have backups on YOUR disks. Physical magnets in your closet = safe sleep.
Which makes me even more angry since DO doesn't offer offsite backup solution. Instead you can take snapshots which they stored on their servers - seemed fair to me... till today.
I bought DigitalOcean droplet for the sole purpose of having reliable server that some big brother takes care of. It seemed a fair trade off - you pay so other will take care of power outages, DDos and disk failures... and then THIS has happened... WELVE hrs of downtime and still no real explanation and no data retrieved... if it were a server at home, I'd have alreadedy have my disks swapped with backups in place. Makes me rethink of a backup solution.

Just waisted almost hour troubleshooting not working internet to realize there was a fuckup with pihole update(not compatible with jessie dnsmasq). Had to manually revert the pihole version. Right now all works
...why can't I just be normie that is only able to restart router?!
"Everything we do to make it harder to create a website or edit a web page, and harder to learn to code by viewing source, promotes that consumerist vision of the web.
Pretending that one needs a team of professionals to put simple articles online will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Overcomplicating the web means lifting up the ladder that used to make it possible for people to teach themselves and surprise everyone with unexpected new ideas."
Hey world, any good XMPP clients for Linux desktop to recommend? PGP support is necessary
Something reminded me I still have Pidgin installd... It's strange to think that something like 6 or 7 years ago I used to have it open all the time because all my friends were on gTalk and MSN
