Seems like we’ve done a good job of keeping business news in the Silicon Valley is Stupid thread. There’s not that much true technology news out there, so it all gets covered on Monday show threads.
But anyway, Github is having a lot of downtime lately. Kind of a big deal. Even though Git itself is distributed, so everyone’s code is completely safe, this is still a big problem. Lots of people are relying on Github for project management, issue tracking, documentation hosting, and CI/deployment among other things. Those parts of it are not automatically backed up on everyone’s computer. You can bring your source code away no problem. You’ll lose everything else.
Also, Ubuntu 20.04 releases today. It’s an LTS release that will be good for 5 years. Over the next few weeks I’m probably going to upgrade everything to the new version so I won’t have to deal with it again for a long time. Good news is that it’s a great performance improvement over 18.04.
Bad news is that it has some issues on WSL1. Seems like it’s going to be just fine on WSL2, though. I just have to wait for my Windows to update to a new enough release to get WSL2.
