As you're probably aware we experienced some unplanned downtime today. It has been claimed it was entirely the fault of Russian Hackers. They invaded fluorine and caused the database updating code in rehash to not update the database this last site update. Which is just as well, I suppose, since two of the SQL statements refuse to complete even when run manually. That I'm going to have to chalk up to a misconfigured ndbd on helium and neon.

tl;dr The long and short of it is, we'll be fine until we can get those updates into the database, but it is going to mean more downtime this weekend.

    I haven't cared about other people's opinions of me for a very long time now.

    When I finally got to that point in my life, it was explosively liberating--suddenly I went from wondering how you are going to like me, to wondering whether I am going to like you (but not really worrying about it all that much). Bang! Gone, an unsuspectingly enormous amount of problems I didn't need.

    I congratulate you on living in the same happy place. I highly recommend it.

    Dear disingenuous shitstain,

    Getting to that point in your life where you don't care about other people's opinions is not liberating unless you have "fuck-you" money. You're familiar with "fuck-you" money because you and I both know you're swimming in it. Without the money - which you so very conveniently neglected to mention because you're a lying shit pile - life becomes unbearable. And it doesn't ever get better. You have to convince people to like you otherwise people don't give you money, and if you can't give a shit about what people think, well then you're fucked for life.

    Do not try to bullshit me, asshole.
