Oh, #Cloudflare was having issues and brought a lot of websites down with it? That's not great.
But thankfully it's not that hard to roll out your own "DDoS protection" (or caching; just call it caching) setup. Here, you can even use our configs: https://git.occrp.org/libre/fasada
Yes, we use them in production, serving sometimes hundreds of thousands views per day.
Patches welcome. #SysAdmin
Is it my imagination or is every coffee cup in every actor's hand empty?
I will always believe I can tell when an actor is carrying an empty cup. Or carrying an empty suitcase.
Don't care how good the actor... you can't fake that. Why not let them carry a full cup of coffee? If they spill it... reshoot the scene.
And put some fucking bricks in those suitcases!
The rich already have Basic Minimum Income: it is called "trust fund stipends."
The rich do not believe they need to earn their wealth. If they did, they would fight to raise inheritance taxes, not lower them.
This isn't new. This is the way money has always worked. The rich are given wealth without effort.
This is so much the case that you can almost say that if you need to expend effort for your money you're upper-middle class at best, and not actually wealthy.
I'm in the running for a promotion. A number of my colleagues wrote a letter of support getting others to sign their names on it too.
Apparently, a couple of other people heard about the letter and tried to suppress it but the original author reobtained it and submitted it. There are a number of people who are upset that they didn't get the same level of support, but what's worse, they now have an "enemies list" because they kept a copy of the letter.
Slow to Facebook.
Slow to Twitter.
