J K 🇯🇵🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿's avatarMon, 29 Mar 2021 19:47:45 GMTI wrote two emails to Japanese brewers today and had my wife check them before sending. It appears that I missed the corrective comments from the first one before sending and it contains a litany of mistakes (nothing major) and spotted the comments on the second one and corrected before sending.. One of the two emails bounced back.. guess which one.. .. yup, the corrected, perfect one came back as the listed email address seems to be having issues and rejected it.

I woke up to a very positive email response from Kochi’s first craft brewer!

He had already heard of me from a mutual friend, he has a daughter around the same age as mine, would like us to help one another to learn brewing terminology from each others native language and would be honoured if we became friends.. happy days!

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

J K 🇯🇵🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿's avatarSat, 06 Feb 2021 01:25:26 GMTIt takes a very, very long time for my stream to load (in excess of 15 seconds) compared to the public stream (1-2 seconds).. why is that? I remember a similar, though not as exaggerated delay when I hosted friendica and that required me to go into the MySQL DB and do some tweaks before it ran at an acceptable speed.. .. I am on postgresql here but why do these php social media sites require so much DB tweaking? (doesn't happen with pixelfed in fairness but there isn't a great deal of content there right now due to the lack of network tab.. Isn't the answer to write more efficient code than tweak whichever database we are instructed to use?
