Twitter is a cesspool still. 

But it is one where you can increasingly fire back without a moderator shutting you down when you destroy their narrative. 

And that is a movement in the right direction.

We'll see about that. I'm still perma-banned and had an appeal denied that I submitted the day after Elon took over. I've submitted another one but I'll probably have to keep doing so until they fire enought purple-haired twats and soy boys.

The latest way to tell people you're literally worse than Hitler: Tell them you don't have any social media accounts.

I guess since we pick on Facebook here we can pick on Amazon as well. I'm at AWS re:Invent this week, and it's a bit overstimulating. When I see the size and scale of everything, all I can think of is ... this company is way too big and needs to be broken up into a hundred Baby Bezos.

Not my speed!

It makes the inevitable crash even more fun to watch.

I was tasked at one point to figure out why our AWS bill is so high. Part of it was relatively straightforward - I get virtual machines, I understand $x for so many bytes out, etc. That was probably the 10% I figured out. The rest was a deployment of a containerized application for a multitude of customers. But of course not just containers. There's orchestration, elastic load balancer gizmo, block storage, Route53, this gizmo, that tweak, some weird ass billing for MongoDB. The application is a simple self-serve kiosk thing. It has about 3 functions. But golly it takes a lot of huff to make it puff. The only good news is that revenue > AWS bill. For now, at least.
It left me feeling that the world was better off when we just bought a dang mainframe and there it was.

Cloud has its place. But its not a solution for everything.

Personally, i think its good for disaster recovery/availability and having some room for temporary on the fly expansion of resources in case of emergency.  But not a lot more.

I would have it ready to use, but be mostly shut down.   Of course shared storage, that is a bit hard not to have copy 'up three in case of local data center vanishing' , but that is just the cost of insurance.

Look into private cloud (and if you think it'd work for you, pm me because I work for a company that does them). Public cloud makes sense when you're just starting out and don't have the budget for infrastructure. It makes sense when you're big and have huge spikes and dips in usage. For everyone in between, it's overpriced.

Remember "IBM and the Seven Dwarfs"? Now it's "Amazon and the 7,000 Dwarfs."

You deserve what you get.

I ordered a gift for my family and the delivery guy just abbandonned it at the front door for everybody to grab. It is a miracle no wild human or animal
ran away with it. I am tempted to contact the store in a couple of weeks and tell them I never got the package...

If the package was shipped without a signature requirement ... there is a bit of fat built into the price for them to handle theft claims.

My pet peeve for those deliveries is when they leave a package out in the rain to potentially get ruined.

That actually happened with one of my mom's orders ... water-soluble stabilizer.  Left in rain.  It was half-dissolved by the time we got to it.  RIP

In this place, every single agency which does not belong to socialized mail post corporations requires a signature.

I actually told the store I haven't received the package, because I am tired of being treated like shit by this delivery service. The store opened a ticket with the agency and - surprise - the agency cannot prove the package was delivered, so their insurance is paying the store for the lost merchandise.
