Happy to share that we are starting to install a Carbon Footprint calculator on some of our clients Cloud infrastructure. Hopefully to start optimizing and reducing their energy consumption. In this case, it feels even better because it was for a green energy provider.

I'm terribly sorry for today's downtime. We are now back.

Post-mortem:

Yesterday my hosting provider, Hetzner, received an abuse report for our entire IP due to a user account that apparently was used as a botnet controller. I suspended the account immediately, but forgot to submit a statement to Hetzner.

My favorite quote from it:
"Organizations spend enormous funds on tools, yet many find better productivity gains by paying attention to the people who build the software and what makes them effective within a particular organization."

zoom rant 

Can we talk about the trend of showing videos in slide presentations over ?

The experience is pretty bad. Sound is awful, video is choppy. And it overall feels like flight safety instructions on board of airplanes. I’m stuck in my seat and I can’t wait for this to be over.
