the roadmap for couchdb 4.0 is intense. couchdb will effectively become an http layer over a foundationdb cluster, which would make it easier to write couchdb clones by simply writing your own layer over foundationdb that supports the same http API. the push for this change came from IBM so a wariness is prudent, but the possibilities are still intriguing
CouchDB 3.0 docs are up!
@stackingstones they really give zero fucks
@turtlebirb often when we talk about sovereignty.. like picture that America said to France "Hey, we just passed this law, so now all of your citizens are required to follow it, and we'll arrest whoever doesn't" Of course that sounds absurd, but that shit is happening every single day to us, that or the new interpretations of existing laws are read in ways so as to strip our autonomy from us in the first place.
i think often about how terry drew inspiration from the strangeness, enough to build an entire OS himself. if you've never read about TempleOS or "LoseThos", check out this article:
of course you can't keep your issues quiet. they become all-consuming. what were once strange dreams or interactions with ghosts become a gulf between you and reality that just keeps widening.
it's telling to me that terry got on disability. when i tried, i was laughed at because i was "well spoken" and "had obviously dressed yourself". we live in a machine that just wants people like us dead, or wants to turn us into the bogeyfolk it can use to scare others into compliance. terry's racism came from the same social forces that left him to die.
i had a dream as a teenager where i met a deity. a face of blue lightning declared in every language i could recognize "I AM GOD" and the force of the utterance shocked me awake. i ultimately concluded "what a weird dream" and went on with my life, but i draw inspiration and even guidance from my strange experiences in other ways, like terry did for his. there's nobody to show you how to use the strangeness, how to understand or navigate it. at best you can get medicated, but schizo meds are meant to deaden you. the alternative under capitalism is worse than death, so i take my meds and i try to keep my issues quiet.
@hirojin every day i hope
@hirojin nah, it's kinda sour to begin with
