"Because the cloud fucked up one too many times, so Mommy decided to set up her own networked cloud with the other mommies in the neighborhood in a mesh network and distributed fault-tolerant storage"
@craigmaloney Where do I find these other mommies?
Do I need to go put up flyers asking of anyone wants to try mesh networking?
Or should I just make an open network "lets_make_a_mesh"
@craigmaloney Somedays 'tis The Cloud, other days 'tis The Mist. Either way, local computer power is better.
@craigmaloney “you’ll put all your stuff in the cloud once you finally get fibre NBN” “no, I bloody won’t - I’m keeping my records and development right here where I have them secure and reliable!”
Admittedly, we might maybe backup to the cloud, rather than to 2 on-site NASes because we fear bushfires…
@craigmaloney How do we easily acheive this in the real world? I'd like local fault-tolerant servers that are very easy to maintain, please.
@craigmaloney At a previous job one of my first assignments was to "move everything off Heroku and onto our own servers" following yet another Heroku fuck-up
@craigmaloney We've had our own server for years. I don't think my kids have ever asked because it's just always been there.
