Amen.
LARGE SYSTEMS USUALLY OPERATE IN FAILURE MODE, via @dangolant Or like I used to say, your distributed system exists in a continuous state of partial degradation. There are bugs and flakes and failures all the way down, and hardly any of them ever matter. Until they do.

10 years flew by. It’s basically legacy now :)
Amazon DynamoDB - 10 Years Later - amazon.science/latest-news/a… #AWS "DynamoDB is the result of 15 years of learning in the areas of large scale non-relational databases and cloud services."
The more “important” the legacy system, the more fragile it seems to be.

This just happened and is a great example of what I call "chat literacy." Red identified "please add me" could easily be taken negatively, and made their intent clear in parens. This is a critical pattern that remote team members need to foster healthy comms through a text medium

I wrote a 2min blog on performing rapid database assessments early on in the #cloudmigration process. Read on for the why & how.
Why is database analysis important to perform at the earliest stages of a cloud migration? The application-centric and data-led migration initiatives we see today are the new normal, gone are the days of infrastructure-led, lift-and-shift only migrations. ow.ly/Chej50HtYeU
As a #cloudmigration person, this makes me happy. 😇 Having rapid access to my migration data via the CLI opens up so many quick automation opportunities.

Somalian asylum seeker Ismail Hussein has spent two years and four months detained at Melbourne’s Park Hotel. But in all his time there, he’s never seen so many protesters and news crews outside the hotel as he has in the past few days. sbs.com.au/news/asylum-seeke…

Make it your new year's resolution to stop using RDP and start using non-interactive remote mgmt techniques like remote PS. Regular RDP with a DA account will drop the DA creds on the system, available for others to grab. It's very rare you actually *need* RDP to perform a task.

We’ve got Djokovic supporters on the left and refugee advocates on the right. One Djokovic supporter just said to me “I feel so ignorant. I came here for him, and find out they’ve been locked up nine years. It’s so wrong.”
