I'm Derek. I am a nerd. Principal Program Manager, Azure Core, Global Resiliency. Toots are my opinion and don't represent my company.

@theintercept This is factually inaccurate and should be corrected. Flights and banks were impacted by a 3rd party, crowdstrike, pushing a patch to their customers which caused Windows machines to blue screen. Yes, there was an Azure outage last night, but they are completely unrelated and it was certainly NOT a “worldwide outage.”

Pssst: influencers struggle with Mastodon because it's harder to influence people here. It's not because this place isn't neat.

I asked a long-time political pro if he thought the press would fall meekly in line and provide stenography for this week's kinder-and-gentler Trump, and he said of course it will.

@9to5Mac Any good tech to help detect them (other than a magnifying glass). Some sort of signal scanner?

Yall! Ghost is @[email protected] !!!!!

@petergleick nevermind - i see it now - zoiks!

@petergleick Just looking at the pic doesn't look like a failure yet but a lack of height and width - or has it now been overtopped and just not represented by photo yet?

@samlitzinger should be THOUSANDS of lawsuits all filed against the state.

This happened in my model Y three weeks ago. I always have a glass break/seat belt knife dongle that is always with me just in case. And my kids all know how to pop the emergency latch. It’s a great car, but this is an absurd design defect.

Had a great call with my lawyer about this today actually. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my Chevy Bolt, but they did wrong here and should be held accountable. mastodon.social/users/arstechn

A new anothology about the extreme dangers of staying on our current trajectory — global warming of 3 degrees or more. The book includes an important chapter from Mastodon's Stefan Rahmstorf (@rahmstorf).

Best of all it's free to read!

@pbump Also, polling is generally garbage w.r.t. presidential contests

@QasimRashid Shameful, but some additional context on the second part. That $50M went into a fund that was hardly accessible to the public. There was a long form article about 10 years ago that described it juxtaposed to the Deep Water Horizon fund that’s worth a read. Sorry, I know that’s not the point of your post, just found the second bits of interest too.

T-Mobile was once an entertaining semi-upstart in U.S. mobile phone service, but it became a sleazy operation. Customers who believed a promise about a lifetime price are the latest victims of a cartel that couldn't care less about them.

I'm sad to report the death of Ed Stone, the NASA scientist who was the heart & soul of the Voyager program. Spending time with him for my Discover magazine profile was a highlight of my career.

I did my best to capture the experience:

T-Mobile users thought they had a lifetime price lock—guess what happened next

"T-Mobile will never change the price you pay," the carrier told users in 2017.
