Can you spare a few minutes?
I'm looking for information about terms - appropriate and otherwise - used to refer to various groups.
They will be used to build a resource explaining the "right" way to refer to members of those groups.
@anna I've got a spike in network I/O but no noticeable CPU or memory flipout. Fits with retry-heavy workload and also indicates well-behaved logic handling those retries, which is the real surprise here

The speed of light is a hard limit for information propagation in order to mask the compute resource limitations of the simulation we live in.
The Planck length is the simulation's limit of atomicity.
Entanglement is a hack; two particles, each a pointer to the same memory.
There are many simulations, run in order to harvest the best media & art they produce for consumption by a hyper-advanced culture.
They're simulated too. It's simulations all the way down.

@TheEnbyperor I mean reports say that the guy claimed to have a bomb, the viability of a possible IED is difficult to shout by eye, but on the other hand those reports come from cops who may just as well have made the whole thing up in the first place

if you are going to be nontechnical, and if you are going to let your ego take the wheel by building a resort-wide wifi rollout, and if you are going to scab as much money as possible by charging silly money and using the cheapest possible gear, and if that cheapest possible gear means using a rinky dink little RB750 as the edge firewall and walled garden - if you are going to do all of that - then at least make sure you patch for CVE-2018-14847 yeah?
@anna tried wiping the installed bundle and re-running bundle install?
@herdivineshadow (I think i know what caused it, I enabled an experimental feature designed to aid fediverse discovery and it was pulling in so many toots that remote follows weren’t getting a chance to update, it’s now disabled)
@herdivineshadow i’ve manually rebuilt all feeds and i now see content from 5 days ago, not sure if there’s anything more recent that should be showing up. give it 24h, see if new stuff appears during that time.
@herdivineshadow hm, you’re right. i’ll investigate tomorrow GMT!
@thomasfuchs That smells like a BBC / Acorn keyboard of some description?
