Very cool map. Definitely useful tool to push for more train use.

Palladium is coming back and it’s not good news in my opinion.

It’s nice to see Tor is still winning even in difficult countries.

The paradox of how walled gardens could kill search engines in the end. I’m not too concerned for Google in practice though, it’s been a long time since it’s an ad agency and not a search engine, and they’ll always have something to advertise…

This is definitely a good musing on when not to go for “cloudy architectures”. Most often people don’t really need it, this needs to be properly thought out for each project. There are costs involved which you might not make sense to pay for in your context.

Nice little database pattern to avoid row contention with counters.

This looks like an interesting set of extensions for Java projects. Unsure if it’s been properly battle tested yet. Likely need that before being really advisable.
