Welcome to computering. No matter how much effort you put in, or what you do, things *WILL* fail. Plan accordingly.

I get the $10 discount and $10 fee for the first year. I've been storing their device. After a year, I'll return the device and my cost will remain the same.

Might have to consult the wisdom of the Internet on this one. Do I stay with the amazing 1Gbps service I get from @sonic, a local ISP, or take this very tempting offer from AT&T? 🤔

Not bad. No data caps, no log retention, and on the right side of Net Neutrality. $45/mo.

I often find myself listening to the @RealWorldDevOps podcast when I have to drive to a client site, since the demise of The DevOps Cafe. Really enjoyed the discussion with @zenfounder on the importance of gratitude w/parallels to "what went well" in Agile retrospectives.

@SF311 every morning between 8 & 8:30 the commuter buses at 25th & Valencia do not pull all the way to the curb to pick up passengers, forcing all in the bicycle lane into rush hour traffic. Could this be addressed?

Given that your monitoring needs to be more available than the system you're monitoring, if you have single points of failure in the product you sell to your customers, outsourcing your monitoring is probably advised. (no, I don't work for a monitoring company)

In that case I'd also recommend never donating to the @splcenter. My entire donation was used up years ago by the multiple paper mailings we receive every week from a single donation. Save trees? Opt-out? *shrug*

For context, in that chapter, Dekker is arguing that in any sufficiently large sociotechnical system, effective teams both consistently bend the rules AND bend the rules consistently (as opposed to one offs) in order to get work done. Rules are too rigid for those systems.

Happened again today at 26th Street. This is not 1 driver, or 1 bus, or 1 company. The buses consistently don't make the effort to pull all the way to the curb space assigned to them. There are no trees or cars blocking their path. The bicycles are forced to accommodate them.
