hot (take in the form of a) poll 

From this poll, I underatand that a large majority of voters doesnt actually like the JSON-LD & the RDF part of ActivityPub.

I mean we might all have different underatanding of what a public library is, but I doubt so.

My hot take is that we use tools that are made to manipulate data at scale and interconnect that day at scale.
As long as this is the case, we cannot be surprised that it is used as intended (the scraping of data and re-understanding of them in new context).

I'm sure this post is missing the nuance required to be something people will boost.
It ia missing the nuance and the intricacies of the audience setting (public/unlisted/private) that masto has.

I'm not technical enought with the implementation of activity pub to tell it how it is and in which part the crack are starting to be obvious.

Maybe we can build the same model with different bricks that doesnt consider hyperlinking the priority.

windows server and raid5 

How do you swap a disk in a software raid 5 on windows 2012 server ?

It is not obvious and everyone tell me to backup the data and recreate the raid, which is kind of defeating the purpose

Help appreciated and boost welcomed

"The other interesting point is that at the start of 2017 the reporting systems have a divergence of some 50,000 route entries, yet by the end of 2019 this divergence has increased to some 100,000 routing entries.

This illustrates an important principle in BGP, that there is no single authoritative view of the Internet’s inter-domain routing table – all views are in fact relative to the perspective of each BGP speaker."

This is not news to me, but its always important to keep in mind

Would you like your activity on the fedi (the music you listen to, the toot you make, the replies, the self boost) to be indexed the same way a public library indexes its content.

The Sims Is A Good Lesson On How Priviledge Works (long) 

In the Sims community there are “Legacy” playthroughs, where you try to get through 10 generations of one family. Gen 1 starts off with 1800 bucks, and has to build a home and start a family with that. I’ll be indexing from 1 as I write this, so Gen 1 = founding generation.

My founder originally started off in a small hut with enough room for a counter, a bench, a refrigerator, and a toilet. That was it. No trash can, no sink. She had to go to the gym to get showers.

When she had a kid, I had to delete the walls in order to afford a private bathroom and the necessities for him. Things slowly built up to the point where when he was a kid, she could afford walls for him and a small computer. It wasn’t until he was a teen that they could afford something that could be called a house. All the money she and her husband made went to necessities for him or for them to get promoted at work.

When he was old enough to get married, his wife had inherited all the belongings from her old family, which gave them enough to build a house to fit them, his parents, and a kid. This is the house generations 3-4 grew up in. Both generations went to college with enough money to not have to worry about getting a part-time job. From $5,000 in support in Gen 3 to $30,000. By the time Gen 5 rolled around, enough wealth had accumulated to afford an even bigger home. All the while each generation struggled less, so they could do more.

This is how wealth and power accumulate. It’s generational, but not enough families are lucky enough to get huge injections of cash via marriage like this family was. Most struggle for generation after generation, especially in the real world where equal opportunity is a sham.

"Easter Island's Monoliths Made the Crops Grow" - literally. Dust and fragments from the quarry added much-needed minerals to the soil around it, making it the most fertile area of the isolated island.
