Oh shit. My background queue hasn’t been running for the last 2 days and I was completely oblivious to it. Serves me for trying to cheap out on monitoring.

Any and all answers are greatly appreciated. No judgement whatsoever. Asking this for research on a WIP article:

Do you #selfhost :flan_hacker: ? If so:

- What do you host yourself?
- Do you use an existing toolchain (Ansible/Puppet scripts, Yunohost, etc)?
- Do you run it bare metal, virtualized or containerized? Which one?

Boosts appreciated :flan_balloon:

Namestork 

About 60 people signed up yesterday after posting on Product Hunt. I’m pretty chuffed with that.

The side project I’ve been working on is called Namestork and today I posted it to Product Hunt: producthunt.com/posts/namestor

Namestork helps you find the perfect name for your baby. Instead of scrolling endless lists, or playing tiresome swiping games, it calmly emails you and your partner 9 names a day to consider. My partner and I used a scrappier version of it to name our youngest.

If you’re expecting, or you know someone who is, I’d be grateful if you took a look.

I couldn’t remember if I signed up to Product Hunt with Twitter or AngelList and now I have two accounts 🙃.

…I guess I could have checked the connected apps first.

I’m blown away by all these sites that have popped up where you can quickly generate decent enough logos.

I want to use one because it’s super convenient, but I feel like I’m cheating a designer.

Florida building collapse 

I'm stunned by this interview. It basically presents the collapse of that building in Florida as a small-scale version of what will happen to the whole planet in the next 100 years: a pyramid scheme meets harsh reality, and a population faces a deadly problem but is unable to come to terms with how and when to fix things before it's too late.

Foursquare is just pre-pandemic contact tracing.

Kids, Sleeping in 

Woke up and kids had made themselves breakfast and changed out of their pyjamas, but there is play-doh all over the floor so….

I’ll still take it as a win 😊

BFPG (the Brisbane Functional Programming Group) is getting together on the 24th of June at 5:30pm (GMT+10) at Bloodhound Corner Bar & Kitchen. Come along if you'd like to chat to some friendly folks about all things FP. meetup.com/Brisbane-Functional. Hope to see you there!

All the designers of the Internet: "Let's build a decentralized network that can re-route around a nuclear war, and still stay functional....

Website Developers from 90's on:
"Sure, except we'll all use like only one of three 'Content Delivery Networks.'"

Going to give Postmark a try for sending emails. My side project is currently using Amazon SES, but every now and then a bunch of emails to icloud.com and me.com don’t get delivered. I’m also looking for better sending statistics (Not trackers, more like logs).
