Just pushed a whole lot of changes to Pine.blog including some new help articles. Lots of good information here: https://pine.blog/kb
“Finish the Job”
If you knew that you’d have to work with the other party, and that a majority house could be controlled by a minority speaker, wouldn’t that foster more centrist bipartisanship? There’d be no incentive to obstruct the process and wait until the next election to do what you wanted.
Random thought: What if the Speaker of the House and the President couldn’t be from the same party?
Related: big levers and switches are cool.
“Quick! Traffic is spiking! Increase the parser throughput and tighten the rate limits on non-critical queues!”
“Aye aye!” *flips big lever*
Developers sometimes talk about “tuning a system” or having “levers” and “switches” to configure things. I want real levers and switches. I want to tune my feed parsing cluster like a pilot or a sailor does a plane/ship.
And now I need to eat. Panic made me hungry.
That was stressful. Thankfully I have extensive backups.
Pine.blog users: Apologies, but an error caused me to have to restore from last night’s backup. You might notice that you have to log out and back in to use the app and that your likes from this morning are missing.
My sincerest apologies. Everything is good now and that problem should never happen again.
Finished rolling out some feed parsing improvements. That’s all for now.
Got a quick Pine.blog fix to deploy. Might be down for a bit.
Sorry for the quick bit of downtime. Got some long awaited, much needed server upgrades done.
I have so much respect for this project called DarkIce. It’s a feature complete streaming application that has been continuously updated and used in production since 2000.
Bug Hunter 🐜💀
Coming this summer to a theatre near you.
I think I found the culprit for that timeline bug. Gonna give myself a few hours to test the fix.
The original code was unusable but there wasn’t that much of it.
Spent a little time trying to resurrect an old hobby app of mine. It never launched but I’m gonna try to maybe get a beta out soon.
It seems like a bug, that I thought was killed in 1.3.1, still lives. If your timelines break after switching you can quit and restart the app to fix it. It’s rare but it’s there.
Because of the App Store’s holiday schedule, I’m not sure if I can get an fix out before next week.
I noticed that feeds haven’t been updating since last night. Had to restart some a piece of Pine.blog this morning. Should be working again. New posts will appear shortly.
