It shouldn’t be a surprise that Facebook has joined Section 230’s critics: it literally has the most to gain from decimating the law. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/11/dont

@kriive to elaborate on how GitHub's response undermines this: when you use a frivolous problem (branch name) as a front for a serious issue (racism), it can easily be manipulated to enable corporate virtue signalling, keyboard warriorism, and so on, by addressing the frivolous problem.

GitHub was able to control the narrative about their own ethical failings by making a trivial change and painting themselves as leaders against racism, and yet still today they collaborate with ICE, which constitutes /official, monetary support/ for an organization responsible for rapidly escalating systemic racism.

Also, if you actually care about addressing systemic racism, and you're advocating for s/master/main/g, then you had fucking better be out there protesting, donating to charitable causes, and doing action of real significance, too.

And remember kids, if anyone tells you to implement DRM, tracking software, anti-patterns, gambling apps disguised as social media, and so on - you tell them to "FUCK OFF". If you get fired over it (and you might not, for the record), give me a call and we'll help you find somewhere better.

Utterly horrible attempt to divert responsibility for road safety onto pedestrians, cyclists and dog owners by @LeasingOptions@twitter.com, rather than simply demand drivers stop looking at their phones. cc @HiVisFails@twitter.com leasingoptions.co.uk/static/hi

SLAPP lawsuits (strategic lawsuits against public participation) are bad.

Surveillance apps that monitor students are bad.

today i finished writing my rss feed generator in nim for my wiki. its kinda cool to see that rss still feels valuable and relevant after all these years... also it was really easy to write in #nim !

i was explaining rss to a friend, and he was like, it sounds like you're just trying to re-create social media. i thought it was funny, because before centralized platforms like fb etc, things like rss and personal websites *were* the social parts of the web

So you want to expose your container port in Kubernetes?

It’s simple. Just use a NodePort!

But wait, that can’t be port 80, it can only be port 30000+. Okay well we have a solution for you. Just install Ingress! It’s a special Kubernetes resource that handles routing inside a cluster, using Nginx internally.

Got Ingress running? Great! But wait, it still doesn’t expose port 80? Nope, it just runs on its own NodePort. Okay this is fine though, we have a solution. Just install MetalLB! It’s an experimental software load balancer for Kubernetes, just follow these instructions…
