    @cgiffard I’m guessing race condition.

      @keita To make it worse, the downloads are zero-rated on the home internet.
      simon_w
        @keita Which is how I accidentally blew through 5 GB of my 6 GB plan on the second day of the cycle...

          @keita WWDC app, download all the sessions.

            Hey Australia, don't fuck up this weekend.

              @keita it also helps to prevent URL enumeration attacks, so can help from that side too.
              simon_w
                @keita yeah, made moving to a master-master setup so much easier without having to switch to random IDs (which we need to do at some point, but now it’s not for DB scaling reasons)
                simon_w
                  @keita it’s all handled automatically. The servers get told a new node is joining and what they should adjust their increment values to.
                  simon_w
                    @keita so, in a two server setup, one server would use even numbers and the other would use odd
                    simon_w
                      @keita increment is set to number of servers, instead of 1. Basically gives each server a unique set of values.
                      simon_w
                        @cgiffard so long as the unreachable server doesn't have any conflicting changes, it'll rejoin fine too. @keita
                        simon_w
                          @cgiffard seems to be. We've only had that happen once, and it seems to treat unreachable as off, rather than as removed from replication. @keita
                          simon_w
                            @keita we get that with auto-increment too. So glad Galera handles setting the increment value and offsets automatically, or adding servers would be terrible.

                              @cgiffard Ugh, git is the worst for this. You can get the same flags meaning different things on the same command, depending on other flags :( @tomcat @konrad @keita
                              simon_w
                                @tomcat @cgiffard @konrad @keita And, related to this, you then get the people that are “you’re technical. You’re used to the command line. You don’t need a good UI”. The amount of *terrible* developer-focused apps is astounding.

                                  @tomcat @cgiffard @keita @neilco @konrad I don’t actually use Maps that much, and can go back to what I used to do and print out directions beforehand if I need them.

                                    @cgiffard @tomcat @keita @neilco @konrad Personally, I’ll just stop using a smart phone. Maybe get an iPod (non-Touch) for my music.

                                      @cgiffard @tomcat @keita @neilco @konrad Seems like the EU regulation is about the wall plug and not the cable, with the cable only being required if it can’t be detached from the wall plug.
                                      simon_w
                                        @tomcat @cgiffard @keita @neilco @konrad I still meet people who want to know why Apple moved away from the 30pin connector. At least there was technical superiority in that choice.
