A mysterious outage. I tried to reboot the server over and over, and it wouldn't come back. So I created another instance, but kept making mistakes with AWS.

I know the rent is in arrears.  permalink

The dog has not been fed in years. permalink

It's even worse than it appears! permalink


See, Jerry was a musician, but he understood programming. permalink

Namaste y'all! permalink

Still diggin. permalink
