@rachel I tend to use one VM per service to make tasks such as rebuilding, rescaling and backing up easier. My gitolite VM now runs at 512mb allocated RAM and 1 vCPU-Core as I’m just pushing .org files around most of the time (compression and computing differences between objects are the noteworthy CPU-bound operations in git; RAM only tends to become an issue as soon as you’re pushing large files). Hetzners CX11 is too much for this anyways.

@rachel 2020 is the year of how I moved all my hetzner servers to VMs running on a older mac mini debian host & figuring out that I never needed the resources I thought I needed lol

So I replaced my gitea set-up with gitolite for my private repositories & now I’ve been wondering why I even used gitea for this in the first place? Like all I need is something to create repos and does access control for them. Gitea is great for collaboration, institutions and organizations; but definitely too much for my five repos and the handful of people that should access them.

Some people just aren't conventionally attractive ... and that's okay!

But making fun of people's appearances when they do something you dislike or downright evil tells the world that you think that beauty is good and ugly is evil. Stop that.

given how shitty the acronym of the gnu image manipulation program is i think we should just rename it to 'gnu raster image design software', grids

Leute, ich suche Menschen, die über Datenschutz-, und Überwachungsthemen schreiben und dabei nicht die typisch europäische oder nordamerikanische Perspektive vertreten. Haut mir mal Lese-, und Follow-Empfehlungen hier drunter, wenn ihr welche habt.

Und gerne auch boosten/RTen.

Kunde: “was wäre wenn wir $Sache machen?”
Ich: “$Sache ist eine furchtbare Idee und sehr fehleranfällig, bitte nicht machen”
Kunde: “Ok”
Kunde, drei Tage später: “wir haben jetzt $Sache umgesetzt und nichts geht mehr, tun sie was”

Ja. Ach.

Mehr oder weniger spontan erhielten wir heute eine Spende eines Unternehmens über elf Desktops - alle wohl noch relativ jung und mit i7-CPUs bestückt. 🤩

Link rot is such a pervasive problem for anything that's older than 1-2 years. I wish more folks at all levels of managing websites would have some awareness that keeping URLs stable or setting up redirects is important for our collective memory.
