AWS infra 

Why is my AWS Batch job stuck in RUNNABLE status? - Franz Kafka

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

Lacanianism 

Genuine question, how does Lacanian psychoanalysis handle non-human theories of mind? Like, my dog interacts with with the symbolic and imaginary orders and has genuine desire and fantasy, but cannot recognize himself in a mirror. Ants can pass the mirror test, yet it seems impossible to imagine their Autre. How is this discrepancy accounted for?

accidentally fed everyone bugs bc the top had been left off the oatmeal container. :(

Sometimes the most simple programs can bring the most joy. My son and I had so much fun trying to follow the computer's instructions that we couldn't stop laughing

My 1st-grader and I were genuinely confused while watching a video about the Antikythera mechanism. He kept asking if it would give the money back when it reached the end of the calendar cycle.

He had connected the concept of using computers to buy things and was surprised that the Antikythera, while a computer, did not facilitate commerce. What a good starting point for a conversation about computing.

If you're currently on a massive server like mastodon.social, you might want to consider moving your account to a smaller server.

You can keep your followers when you change servers, here's how to do it: https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107939441820299376

You can find reliable servers at https://joinmastodon.org/communities (all the servers listed there agree to the covenant at https://joinmastodon.org/covenant). Try to pick one with fewer people.

There are lots of good things about smaller servers:

-Better moderation, because there are more staff per member.

-Smaller servers tend to have more personality, with a village feel.

-The local timeline on smaller servers is much more readable.

-Smaller servers protect the Fediverse as a whole from being taken over, because lots of smaller servers are harder to buy than a few big servers.

-It's easier to make a difference on smaller servers. It's easier to discuss things with the admin and other members.

poetry is when

and the more lines you
break
the more
poetry
it is

I guess I'm at the part of the project where I'm telling myself, "Terraform sounds like it could solve this infra problem." Pray for me.

Eve Online's Excel integration portends the future merger and semantic collapse of video games and business suite software. What exciting mashups can we expect? What stories can be told using JIRA or SAP or Zendesk?

imagine tearing down the lines separating homes from parks from wilderness. who wants to live in the tree apartments?

CW: SA/US Pol/violence/artistic(paintings) representations of gore 

A little older but pretty relevant. I really enjoyed reading this piece. I wonder what new art is being made today to express current female rage that will be examples used tomorrow?

The curb cut effect: for example, media descriptions right here on Mastodon help people who use screen readers, but they are also useful for explaining the joke for people who donā€™t get it, for translations of text, and for copy-pasting what would otherwise be just an image of text.
