An Installment of Metasnark
1. I was totally going to link to the David Foster Wallace commencement address! I read it on MUNI going home a few days ago and really liked it. DFW, along with my two personal gurus Philip Pullman and Billy Collins, both underscore the value of patience and compassion — virtues that get lost in the shuffle of courage, love, etc. sometimes.
2. So our wonderful hosts at ICDsoft told me I can’t run the BitTorrent tracker anymore because it “forks background processes.” That seems a totally reasonable limitation, as we are currently paying approximately forty-eight cents a month for great service. BUT: Anybody got recommendations for slightly more high-powered and flexible hosting if I want to get the tracker up and running again?
