One of the irc chatrooms I belong to went through a lot of effort to move users to libera.chat when freenode went nutso, but now they have the old freenode channel bridged to libera.chat so all the messages are still flowing through there. Maybe this is a sign.

Oh you now just reading some grant proposal reviews about how Ansible isn't designed for the average user. I mean yes ... but I think you might be missing the point.

I had a bit of a scare this morning on a hike with my dog through a forest near my house. We ran into another friendly dog and while they were playing they took off around a corner in the trail for no more than 30 seconds, but only the other dog returned.

After 30 minutes of waiting and calling for her, I ran back a couple of miles to the head of the trail where she was quietly waiting for me. I was so happy to see her!

Bookmarked: Photographing the Tulsa Massacre of 1921 – The Public Domain Review publicdomainreview.org/essay/p On the evening of May 31, 1921, several thousand white citizens and authorities began to violently attack the prosperous Black community of Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Karlos K. Hill investigates the disturbing photographic legacy of this massacre and the resilience of Black Wall Street’s residents.

This Memorial Day we in the US *must* remember the legacy of the Tulsa Race Massacre that happened 100 years ago, and is still with us today in the resurgence of white supremacy.

Reparations is logic & justice for the survivors of an atrocity for which no one was held accountable.

Listen to this interview with Stanley Nelson who made the new documentary Tulsa Burning.

While tuning into some nice work going on at publicdatalab.org/projects/lis I was reminded of this silly little web page I created a few years ago to let you listen and combine sounds of animals (mostly birds) from around the world.

Looking again at it, I see it might be more interesting to be able to combine animals from the same place.

WHY DO SO MANY COOL OPEN SOURCE WEB APPLICATIONS DEPEND ON DOCKER, HOLY SHIT LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPER SETUP DOCUMENTATION :blobcattableflip:

I refuse to run Docker containers inside of Linux Containers so my options are…
- Install manually and make upgrading a pain in the ass
- Don't use the app

As much as I would *love* to use it, the reliance on Docker for managing 100% of the stack is a *hard* no. Figuring out how the image has changed between releases would make manual maintenance absolute hell and I am unwilling to shoulder that burden.

Not everyone is *able* to use Docker and not everyone is *willing* to use Docker. By not supporting any other deployment method, you are preventing some individuals from using what could be *the* application they've spent years looking for.

Let the admin decide how to architect their own systems. They know their backend better than you do.

They trotted out some expert from Oxford University who worked on the AstraZeneca vaccine to help make the point. I wish I could find it online, maybe in a few hours...

I just heard a truly awful piece on NPR Morning Edition about patents for COVID19 vaccine that compared them to chocolate cake.

Their initial point that patents lack details to implement the vaccine was good. But the conclusion that opening patents would ruin vaccine production and deplete the supply of needed ingredients was ridiculous.

How about concluding that the global north needed to do more than just open up patents? These corporations are fucking insidious.

The holes in my yard that some of these 17 year cicadas emerged from. The picture doesn't really do justice to the scale.

I've been getting some bug reports for a tool I've developed from people on Windows. Unfortunately I don't have easy access to a Windows computer, but I discovered that a Windows 10 instance is just a `snap install clouds` command away.
