Pinned toot

Does anyone remember Postman Pat and his cat? Don't know why I just thought of it...

Pinned toot

I just want a voice assistant so I can yell into it "Shields up! All hands, red alert. Prepare for warp"

In the process of setting up a home server. Build the computer and set up alpine Linux on it. Alpine is quite nice. Only issue is that some of the wiki is out of date / has two entries for version 3.10+ and prior editions.

People who run public facing servers (mainly at home): Do you block IPs an entire country at a time (not naming names) or just fail2ban.

Just purchased parts for my "personal cloud" and I want to know what's a good way of reducing connection spam.

Blocking an entire country (okay, it's Peru guys /s) seems like it'd be super effective, but also mean spirited in the manner of splitting the "net" in two.

What conventions or best-practices change when you write a resume post-uni vs in-uni?

@Gargron is there a feature or just a good way to follow up on a thread of toots? For example, I see a conversation developing and I want to see a response.

I won't get any notifications about it unless I add a toot and someone interacts with it. Starring it might work, but that still relies on me checking on it which could be wasted time.

If everyone in an economic system had good financial habits, would the economy be good or bad?

As in, the economy works by some people taking out loans and then then paying interest. The interest is given back to other people who deposited the money. Some people who took out loans can't pay them back, so they lose collateral. That's a bit of a circular system.

What happens if you stop that system. Is it just boring and no one spends anything?

Actual question. Have taken basic micro-economics.
