so i've had to actually create it

i present to you: the
ELEANOR RIGBY BATTLE THEME

PSA: last night one of our pyrex cooking dishes exploded.

not fractured, exploded. “pyrex isn’t supposed to do that” we thought.

as of a few years ago, Pyrex sold their brand, the new company changed glass recipe as a cost cutting measure, resulting in a pandemic of exploding cookware and a class action lawsuit.

thankfully the patent has expired and the keyword to look for in competing glass cookware products is “borosilicate glass”

Moar corez!

MOAR COREZ!!!

Well, at least the big ol' elephant *seems* happier now that I've fed it a couple more vCPUs. I have enough of them that I don't need to be TOO stingy. Seems a combination of software upgrades and new signups (mostly attempted signups by spambots actually) may be a contributing factor to stability and resource usage issues here.

Will keep an eye on it. Have other ideas if the extra cores don't work.

Folding@Home, COVID-19 

This is something that both local governments and ride-sharing #PlatformCooperatives can push for, by sharing the costs of developing a #FreeCode software stack for running ride-sharing services. Ideally one that allows users to download vendor-neutral apps, that can connect with a range of services available wherever they are, over a common protocol. This could include public transport, taxis, and ride-hailing and car-sharing services.

The world of Mastodon has resumed its revolution around The Coyote! Order has been restored to the fediverse! :blobcheer:

Every time I go out fossil-hunting on the Peace River, I don't want to leave. I want to stay and explore deeper and deeper into the wilderness until I find a karst cave which I will turn into my own Grizzly Adams remote redoubt. I'll live off fish that I catch and berries that I cultivate.

My name will be Marshy Mike and I will be a legend of the swamps. Campers will tell tales of me around the fire.

Then go back home and post stuff on the interwebs.

I refuse to read the article because the truth can't possibly be as weird as my imagination.

#Mastodon #Firefox #Addon: Simplified Federation.

Simplifies following or interacting with other users on remote Mastodon instances in the Fediverse. It skips the "Enter your Mastodon handle" popup and takes you to your own "home" instance, without entering your Mastodon handle on remote instances.

Let's Encrypt users should hurry over to checkhost.unboundtest.com to learn if any of their certs is about to be revoked (owing to a bug at LE's end).

Thanks to @hs0ucy for tooting this news en français.

@tek just a protip for Mastodon admins:

if you block fedi.app, it will implicitly block all subdomains of fedi.app as well, so consider blocking fedi.app instead of or in addition to search.fedi.app
