PgBouncer is useful, important, and fraught with peril

jpcamara.com/2023/04/12/pgbouncer-is-useful.html
To start, I want to say that I’m appreciative that PgBouncer exists and the work its open source maintainers put into it. I also love working with PostgreSQL, and I’m thankful for the incredible amount of work and improvements that go into it as well. I also think community and industry enthusiasm around Postgres is at an all time high. There are more managed hosting options than ever (Crunchy Data, Render, Fly.

100 things you can do on your personal website | James' Coffee Blog

jamesg.blog/2024/02/19/personal-website-ideas/
Some inspiration of things I could do
One of my favourite things to do in my free time is to tinker with this website. Indeed, this website is the culmination of years of tinkering. I have added features like coffee shop maps that I can share with friends, a way for me to share my bio in two languages, a sitemap.xml file to help search engines find pages on my website, and more.

All you need is Wide Events, not “Metrics, Logs and Traces”

isburmistrov.substack.com/p/all-you-need-is-wide-events-not-metrics
This quote from Charity Majors is probably the best summary of the current state of observability in the tech industry - a total, mass confusion. Everyone is confused. What is a trace? What is a span? Is log line a span? Do I need traces if I have logs? Why I need traces if I have great metrics? The list of questions like these goes on. Charity - together with other great folks from observability system called

The Scary Thing About Automating Deploys - Slack Engineering

slack.engineering/the-scary-thing-about-automating-deploys/
Most of Slack runs on a monolithic service simply called “The Webapp”. It’s big – hundreds of developers create hundreds of changes every week. Deploying at this scale is a unique challenge. When people talk about continuous deployment, they’re often thinking about deploying to systems as soon as changes are ready. They talk about microservices …

Filtering iCloud Shared Photo Library by Contributor

justin.searls.co/shots/2023-12-20-07h46m08s/
Since its release last year, how to filter the photos in our shared library to only show the photos I contributed has eluded me. Individual photo metadata shows who contributed a photo (and in the case of duplicates, multiple people might have contributed the same photo), but there was no way to view one’s contributions in bulk. After a few months of latent frustration, I figured out a way! In the search bar, enter the e-mail address of the contributor's Apple ID and you should see a auto-suggestion like "👥 Shared by person@example.
