did anyone have any good dreams on elm street? or just nightmares?

i'm gonna be hiring a devopsy/sre/systems-y type soon 🎉

I'm looking at probably mid-level or higher given the team size is small. need us work authorization & be in eastern or central time. you'd report to me.

a draft job description is at: gist.github.com/patcable/50df1 - happy to chat about it, the team, the org, take feedback, or let you know when the actual job is up

important monday morning distributed database posting:

1) the log message "JOINING: waiting for ring information" is the main plot of the movie "the ring"

2) the log message "Waiting for gossip to settle before accepting client requests..." is a nod to the classic hit "mean girls"

love adding “at this time” to any message to increase its mysterious factor. “it’s not illegal to reheat a breakfast burrito at this time.”

holy shit my friend sent me travel-remotely.netlify.app/ and it 100% fits for a "screensaver show" criteria

pick a city, pick a radio station from that city, and you can adjust? the amount of city noise??? which is extremely comforting rn

also, if i could live in a song, i'd move into emancipator's "time for space" youtube.com/watch?v=FTpafOTaWs

also maybe? l'impéatrice's "là-haut" (which i didn't realize it had such a rad music video tbh): youtube.com/watch?v=Zky8sIOvGY

the "long way {round,down,up}" shows were mostly ewan macgregor and his pal charlie being like "ah, how beautiful, the open road" roughly 2.5 min but it was nice to see ~remote-ish places on this earth.

taking suggestions for new screensaver shows if you've got 'em

thinking of spicing my terminal up with Mistral® Com Regular - v. readable for daily use imo

disclosure: i am deeply in the pocket of Big Root - been logging into things as root for years, and I shant be stopping now!!!

described an rate of data to someone as "100MB/sec, as in one whole zip disk per second" which is something everyone absolutely knows about in 2021

if you are a tremendous nerd, you might find the debugging story of “why newer erlang and rabbitmq won’t talk to my ldap server” interesting. also, rabbitmq 3.8.12 will be out later this week with some new config options from this journey. enjoy: pcable.net/posts/2021-02-10-rm
