Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.
Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.

well sorry about that downtime folks. i did not expect a surprise kernel upgrade to break iptables and therefore break docker and to have to upgrade to a new Ubuntu release before I could get everything unfucked.
Just built Castor (the gemini/gopher/finger browser) in a Docker container on a remote host because I didn't want to install all the build deps on my tiny Chromebook running Ubuntu Bionic and the darn thing worked first time! <3 @julienxx

This is a lovely sentiment, from https://www.robinsloan.com/notes/home-cooked-app/ -- a counterpoint to the idea that our Gemfiles and package.json's are pointlessly overflowing and people have forgotten how to write `leftpad`
Urgent security update incoming, so TTW is going down. Also my Internet is down because of a snow storm so I'm doing this over tethered mobile. What excellent timing! #tildeadmin
