@darius I don't know why this didn't occur to me earlier, but IBM's heavy use of basic non-relational record-oriented data storage must have been a huge historical nod to tape storage. "Find this record set and then I'll iterate it for the data I want" is totally a natural metaphor if you use a sequential storage system.
I really lack for any kind of aesthetic role model that speaks to my non-binary-but-athletic AMAB self. #nonbinary
#signsandcodes had a brief outage this afternoon when our AWS EC2 instance became "unreachable". I don't know why, but we were able to reboot it and bring us back online.
Attention #signsandcodes users! There will be a brief outage while I attempt to increase the size of our storage!
You wake up one day and get yourself to grind.
Your grind pays in many ways.
You get good at your grind.
You get known for your grind.
You get used for your grind.
But you're winning on your grind.
You say you were born for your grind.
And then you don't need your grind.
And you pick another grind because it's a habit.
And you you're not sure anything is real but the grind you don't need.
@epilanthanomai I heard you've got pneumonia. You holding in there?
