@taweret If I ever write a cookbook it'll start : "I grew up in a Scandinavian family, so other culture's foods were very important to us, because we sure as hell weren't going to eat Scandinavian food."
"...Anyway here's how to make some tacos or something."
The Press Needs An Intervention When It Comes To Over-Hyping 5G https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20190701/08291942501/press-needs-intervention-when-it-comes-to-over-hyping-5g.shtml
Assortedflotsam.com updated to Mastodon v2.9.2
Sorry for the downtime - an undocumented db upgrade was required.
Backing up the Mastodon database takes longer and longer, and there are less than 20 users here. Of course, I have some busy bots.
I figured out what has been occasionally slowing down Assortedflotsam.com - backups. They were running too often, stepping on themselves.
I got the schedule sorted out, so it should smooth out here after the currently running backups (!) stop.
After that, I'll upgrade to 2.9.2
Fun fact about the license under which the Mastodon source code is published (AGPL) is that it requires any modifications to it to be published.
No secret sauce, no proprietary features possible. Which is why commercial companies hate this license.
Want to paywall "pro" features? You can, but anyone can take your code and run it on a different server for free.
Anyway, that's quite an interesting financial choice for Gab, a for-profit entity that sells "pro" features
