Totally understood. The trick is: you can tune your own signal/noise. Its very handy and I get essentially all my news via Twitter these days.
Its all on Twitter man...
"I've built more than a few static websites (I use Sublime Text 3 or Atom, not some fancy-pants WYSIWYG doohickey) and am quite familiar with CSS, but databases not so much. "
Are you the only one involved?
As a consultant I get asked this kinda quick question on a regular basis. There is no quick answer to this. The general answer is to take the time to understand the requirements, understand the technology, understand the tradeoffs, understand the staffing, understand the testing, understand security and then do a bake off of at least three solutions. If you are upgrading looking to scale out then does management really understand the financial commitment needed to replace and grow?
Be a job little or small, do it right or not at all. Too many people are glib these days about the complexity of software applications and as such get themselves in a whole lot of trouble in the long run.
LVM and rsync are your friend.
The easiest way to backup physical is with rsync, LVM and snapshots. No rm required. None of my backup scripts have
If it is a VM just take a snapshot of the VM?
Why would any backup script use "/bin/rm"?
This sounds really fishy.
Or really incompetent.
If I have seen farther than others it is because I stood on the shoulders of Fire Giants.
Borrow from one it is plagiarism. Borrow from a bunch of gamers it is a lot of unattributed fun, because who cares!
My interviewing process for developers focuses as much on people skills as technical skills. Unless all your developers are siloed then they will need to be able to communicate and work with others.
For all the years we've been hearing about how tough the problem solving skills are for tech companies I have yet to hear how tough the interview is for people skills.
Any company that only focuses on technical problem solving is going to be a disaster to manage.

Hi! Happy Tuesday
My understanding is that DevOps was coined by a manager at Etsy who recruited developers for managing IOPs and other costs in the Amazon cloud via software designed to do just that. DevOps meant someone who was saavy enough to write system level code.
Somewhere along the way this notion got morphed into being the system administrator and the developer.
1. Developers optimizing Amazon and other cloud environment costs by using application code specialized to manage system administration aspects of the cloud; including managing switches, spinning up VMs, etc.
2. Developers with system administration responsibilities.
The reality is that Etsy moved off of Amazon to an in-house data center and left us with a messy legacy of a term, DevOps.
Can't copyright titles and 'pixel' as a word is too generic to trademark. Ignore the take down.
Q: Iâ(TM)ve been working on a book and the title is very importantâ"I use it as the URL for my blog, for a weekly column I write, etc., and I want people to identify it with me. Can I copyright a title so others canâ(TM)t use it? â"Anonymous
A: Copyrights cover works fixed in a tangible format, but because titles are typically short, they donâ(TM)t fall under copyright protection. So no, you canâ(TM)t copyright a title to a book, song or movie. But you can trademark a title, which may give you the protection you seek.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states that a trademark protects words, phrases, symbols or designs identifying the source of the goods or services of one party and distinguishing them from those of others. Brand names like Pepsi, Xerox and Band-Aid are all protected. So is the Nike âoeswoosh.â But more relevant to us, book titles such as The Da Vinci Code and Harry Potter and the Sorcererâ(TM)s Stone are trademarked.
Unlike copyright protection, which is granted the minute your work is written down, trademarks arenâ(TM)t handed out so freely. In fact, if the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office doesnâ(TM)t consider your title (or brand) a distinctive mark that is indisputably distinguishable from others, you will not be granted trademark protection. This is why you see so many books with the sameâ"or very similarâ"titles. Many of the terms are considered too generic or arbitrary to warrant protection.
Trademarks are not only intended to protect the creator, but also the consumer. Trademarks keep others from confusing a well-known work on the bookstore shelves with others. For example, Harry Potter is such a popular, distinguishable character by J.K. Rowling that youâ(TM)d expect any title with his name in it to be written by her (or, at least, a book approved by her). Itâ(TM)s not only her work, but itâ(TM)s become her brand.
So if you use the title of your book as the title of your blog, column, etc., it could be considered your brand identifier. And if you find success, you could qualify for trademark protection.
The employees like it, the customers like it, and nobody who didn't voluntarily put themselves in this situation is affected by it, save for the raw dynamics of business (i.e. some other company is capturing your market better than you, so you're losing business and they're gaining business; this is why the RIAA wants rights-enforcement jurisdiction over RIAA-independent artists, not just those who sign with one of the RIAA labels). Complaining that you don't agree with how it should work is literally the same as complaining that some people have gay sex or study Marx: it's not your business.
At least some employees don't like it, and they are suing Uber.
True. Taxi drivers would never engage in such behavior! Never! It must be Uber!!!
Taxi drivers have invested a lot more into their occupation than Uber drivers. They have a lot more to lose.
This sort of attitude is one reason I favor strongly reducing the existence and extent of public property - because it removes an excuse for you to meddle.
Get off my land!
Why did some people mark this comment as flamebait? I wonder if they bothered to read the article I linked to. Was the article also flamebait?
