a secret history I'm not privy to but experience the fallout of

Does anyone have a link to that one apocryphal story/joke about debugging Windows Server? more details: 

It's someone's first day on the job working ops. One of their Windows Servers errors out, and a senior ops person helps out. "How do you know what's wrong?" "I don't, it's impossible to, I'm just gonna restart it"

more puzzle thoughts 

wanting folks to solve the puzzle right away, except then it wouldn't be a very good puzzle? (most of the time)

a friend of mine gave me godlike advice. paraphrasing: "I'm an adult, the puzzle doesn't have to babysit me, I'm OK with struggling"

sudoku culture is good because folks accept the struggle as a fact of life. puzzle games are only *just* starting to accept struggle

There's not a good way to adjust string height on a strat in any straightforward way. You can adjust the claw in the back but it doesnt do much imo. So you're left with grub screws. The trem system doesn't have a good set point mechanism, unlike jags and jmasters (no comment on mustang trems). And there's not a whole lot of diversity in tone. Once you play a strat, you've got strat tone--not necessarily a bad thing but there could be so much more

however i cannot possibly see how people think "lol just trust us bro, we'll host everything and we PROMISE not to do anything shady" is a better solution

For all of the extremely many problems Mastodon has, and it has extremely many, it has pretty well convinced me that the only "good" social media setup is being directly accountable to a group of admins, each of which I personally know to the extent that I would say "well shit if so-and-so is pissed with what I did then I probably did some fucked up shit and shouldn't ever do that again" about the comments of any one of them
