    This article was deeply disappointing, there was no investigation on reasoning on why Minikube was slow.

      I’m building a 1on1 solution for SSL and domain monitoring called https://siteguardian.dev main goal for me with this project outside of the actual product was to build and validate an Elixir/Phoenix stack for quickly developing micro-saas projects.

        Act seems to have some limitations, for example it doesn’t seem to be able standup services specified on the yaml file.

          Queue management for inbound digital content Essentially information overload how do we deal with the non-stop barrage of information in a way that is effective, efficient and still valuable. IMO an untapped problem that is only getting worse.

            RSS is ok in that role. I find news using RSS, select them on my mobile, then push to my Kindle. Often awesome content turns out to be just a clicky title and very little content.

            1. 3

              Yeah, the “read later” flag that most newsreaders have is very useful. I use it constantly in Feedly. I also like Feedly’s “Boards”, which are just customizable tags for articles, since you can add any URL to them, making them a nice personal bookmark-tagging system.

              I don’t find the queue to be much of a problem. Yes, it is annoying to have so many “unsynchronized input queues” but on the other hand the flexibility to add and remove queues all the time is also necessary.

              Currently, I focus on my digital brain and I find the act of connecting informations more valuable than the ability to trace it back to its source. If I can it link, it works fine. For video, personal communication, chat, it does not work well, but at least the information is in my system.

                Nice! I just signed up, this could be something I can use for my business!

                  Thank you!

                      Not sure where to look. I get itchy having more than 5 tabs open, let alone that many screens begging for my attention. Kudos to you for being able to handle all that.

                      1. 2

                        I’m with you; most of the time I’m fine hacking on my little MacBook Air, and I generally use things in full screen mode.

                        • Work: MBP 15”
                        • Personal Travel/Bumming Around: MBA (Retina 2019)

                        my home machine is the only one with two monitors, and they are:

                        • a 25” that only displays code
                        • the 15” that only displays Slack & Chrome

                        I’m actually most impressed by the soundproofing setup you have, although I get the impression that it’s meant to kill echos for videoconferencing, rather than mute outside noises, right?

                        1. 1

                          Correct, the setup is meant to kill echos. Soundproofing to mute outside noise is significantly more difficult and costly but I eventually want to get there.

                        Continue going through the rabbit hole I got myself into; building a tool for automated epub management with elixir.
