Things brain bad on: social media, alcohol, stress

Things brain good on: books, nature, good conversation

Oh my god - Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music is still about (back? updated?), and is no longer a Flash app!

music.ishkur.com/

I spent a stupid amount of time exploring this back in the dark times of the early 2000s.

If anybody is interested, it’s actually super duper easy to host your own instance through masto.host . It’s a little bit of work to get started but really easy after

Go to their site, check out their different plans. The cheapest is like $8 / month & that’s definitely more than enough for a single user instance and even a few more. Here’s a blog post kind of explaining how their plans work since it’s not exactly just “how many users can this handle”

BUT YOU CAN'T GET CAUGHT RED-HANDED
IF YOU'RE NOT RED-HANDED

@art More exploration of Hadoop, Hive, and Presto for building out a data lake.

(we live in a jar & think the lid's the sky
you're hoping for a savior on the cross outside
stars are just a million little fireflies
the sun's just a hole and it's the light outside)

if we take all these things
and we bury them fast
& we pray that they turn to seeds
to roots and then grass
It'd be alright
It's alright
it would be easier that way

@pikestaff tbh I think it's early experimental stuff still. Like stress testing the network to see how it responds. It's curious to think how federation (and federation-level blocks) might be different than a typical network.
