Every time I've hired someone for a new role - Put it off, put it off, put it off. Have to do it. Finally hired. A few days later: "Wow this person is amazing and freed up so much time for me, why didn't I do this a long time ago?"

Is anyone working on VR as a replacement for using multiple monitors? It seems like a practical use case...

I read that some people have tried it but: • Headset is uncomfortable to wear for long periods • Can't drink out of a cup with headset on • Unable to see keyboard/mouse • Resolution not high enough • Eye strain

No idea how @agazdecki finds the time to write a book and give back so much to the startup community while scaling @microacquire on blitz mode but I’m super inspired and looking forward to reading more about him

Thanks for all the help! @giladrom @geoff_l @GFunkEraApps @beornf @jcampbell_05 @john_tipper @shuniyam0 I ended up deciding to rewrite Ubiquiti's install script to change it to LC_CTYPE=C head -c 500 /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'a-zA-Z0-9' | fold -w 48 | head -n 1 which works
Bash experts - here's a problem I've spent all day on, would appreciate any help LC_CTYPE=C tr -dc "a-zA-Z0-9" < /dev/urandom | fold -w 48 | head -n 1 || true • Returns a string on one server and goes back to prompt (correct behavior) • Hangs forever on another server (wrong)

You guys helped me narrow it down, basically head -n 1 should have been cutting the line then exiting, but for some reason on some servers it would cut the line but not exit... no idea why

Can't figure out what is different between the two servers - both are Debian 10 What could cause it to return on one server but hang on another?

Great job @followastinox! Turned out to be quite a bit more complicated than I thought it would be, but it was fun and a great value add for our customers.

3 years full-time on my business now! I'm thankful for every day I wake up and get to keep playing the game "Maybe the real MRR was the friends we made along the way" -Pieter Levels
2 years ago I was fired from my job. I'll never forget how it felt. 26 years old. I had just bought my first house with my girlfriend. 5 acres, 3 cars, a boat, a cat, a dog. My side businesses were getting traction. It was a great life. Then my manager threw a grenade in it.

RE Vultr London outage yesterday:"built-in redundancy did not save it in this instance as the failure struck multiple power feeds into the building. Worse, it seems that the electronic switchgear designed to change the power over to an on-site generator also failed..."

When you buy a VPS instance at Vultr or DigitalOcean for example, unless otherwise stated: • It's not backed up, at all • It doesn't "failover" to anything by default • If you enable "auto backups" they're typically just backing up to another server within the same datacenter

It's up to you to develop and regularly test your backup, recovery, and failover solutions!
