The Economist has a piece about how people generally report being happier after age 40. They suggest money and having kids as the reason.
I wonder if it might not be simply perspective? At the point where there are (statistically) more years behind than ahead I think you look at your problems differently. Adversities aren't as big, enemies aren't as bad, and life teaches you that maybe the world isn't as crappy as it looked when you were 20 and everything sucked.
I've spent most of my day today containerizing application stacks. Seems like #docker tends to make hard things easier, but then also tends to make easy things harder.
And so the #balkanization of the #splinternet continues, with Russia's Duma voting to isolate the country's #internet from the rest of the world. At some point I imagine we'll have multiple "Internets" established on national or regional bases, requiring the cyber-equivalent of a passport to pass information between.
I had some problems though trying to use the #mastodon LOCAL_DOMAIN vs WEB_DOMAIN settings. I set it up correctly, but the first time I went to follow someone - nope. Broken. You'd think this would be a fairly common scenario?
I will say though, #mastodon has a decent API. Very easy to work with and integrate into other sites and applications. That's nice!
