    nice ! this is why i code and fix things in free time i guess
    making something bad, good again makes me happy too

    im 26 and dont know how to swim, but in Cali i think swimming is useful

    @dustinc said: How about you? What’s new in your world?

    recently started duo-queueing life with a person of similar interests, we'll see how it goes, very excited

    Started working on some tech projects, some hardware, some software, not a lot of time or ressources

    Work/school recently started to branch off to more departments, so doing more diverse work, that's good
    pay is still laughable but that's a apprenticeship for you, gotta survive on peanuts

    finished (more or less) my cheap home backup solution with UPS and remote data redundancy, will make a post on LET soon (have all text written, just need some screenshots) (can ping you if you interested)

    next week im going to visit my friends on the other end of germany, we are in friend/whatsapp group for 10 years, sadly 2 out of 7 cannot attend it so thats a bit sad. but hey, gotta keep in touch with homies while you can.

    aside that, nothing exciting, waking up, going to work, going home, eating, sleeping, repeat

    How is this thing working?

    I have a script that checks LET for new comments every minute or so and it has a local database of every comment in this thread to calculate the leaderboard.

    Daam, that's nice.

  • I think scraping this thread to build the stats table would require running a headless browser or similar. puppeteer/playwright etc. There is CloudFlare in the way which would resist scraping naturally.

  • doesn't LET have a built in tool that accomplishes the same thing that providers can use to run giveaways? maybe it was used by GreenCloud for their 1010 birthday sale.

  • Yes there is but it's only available to admins I guess. For others need to resort to plain ol' scraping.

    Woah, 7950X.

    edit: Eh, only one location (-:

    Hi @JabJab -- really appreciate you stopping by our Black Friday 2023 thread :) This is literally fresh news, and this community is among the first to be able to know about and experience our new Gen4 Ryzen 7950X product line up. Very exciting stuff and we look forward to further building out and establishing this product line.

    We will soon be expanding this new product line into other existing locations of ours. In fact, as we speak a batch is actively being prepared and going to be shipped out to another location soon. For now, we believe New York is a solid choice to start and kick off Black Friday 2023, as it still provides decent enough latency for most use-cases around US, Canada, Europe, etc. As these become available in more locations, our order forms will reflect this accordingly. I'll also be sure to announce it within this thread once more locations become available.

    As for our regular KVM VPS product line up, that's currently available to deploy out of ~10 different locations.

    P.S. As a tip - RackNerd does provide one free location migration request per service, so what you could do if you like what you see, is order the Ryzen VPS deal of your choice (in order to secure the Black Friday deal now) and then request a free migration to another location once it becomes available. There would be no charge for that, and we can even migrate your existing data in place at that time, so you can start using the VPS immediately without having to wait.

    Hi @DeadlyChemist -- all that sounds pretty exciting/good actually. Diving into tech projects, both hardware and software, sounds like a great way to keep your skills sharp, even if time and resources are tight. Sounds like a nice balance of work, personal projects, and maintaining relationships. Keep pushing through, and enjoy the little things in life's routine :)
