I woke today to see that WE HIT OUR BIG $6000 GOAL IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS!! I screamed!!! (woke up my partner, and then she screamed too)

Can mastodons really toot horns? Or will their tusks get in the way? 🤔

And we're on 2.5.2 now. Happy tooting everyone!

"And you didn't even have to use Kubernetes" is my new punchline, y'all

Okay, it took a little longer than expected, and it involved some downtime (due to human error), but we're back up and on 2.5.1.

I'm going to upgrade this instance to 2.5.1 in a couple of moments. I do not expect any downtime. I'll let you know once we're through the thick of it.

This article about alleged Chinese hardware hacking is incredibly interesting (but only scratches the surface of what’s technically viable in terms of espionage these days; on any front, Chinese, American etc.. nobody’s innocent in this game):

And for once (just this once) even the Orange Website comments are ok:

New Macbooks and Imacs will brick themselves if they think they're being repaired by an independent technician
