    It's funny, because I see nothing but more complexity as tech matures. Where a decade ago I was running a Linux distro with a SQL database and some PHP running in a couple of web servers, now, I'm... running some kind of containerized bastard with Kubernetes, multiple layers of K/V stores to front some mix of databases, message queues, permanent infrastructure with Ansible, frontend SPAs with a webpacked React transpiled for specific browsers talking GraphQL to some microserviced bastard, bleh. We made tech substantially more complex, and while we've got some ostensibly simple facades, when they slip, there's a gaping maw of horrors lurking behind them.

    facade is the word; the tech is substantially more complex but that complexity is also abstracted away more than ever.

    not many places have staff to cover what happens when they do slip either.

    I love this

    there's also an element of simplification as tech matures, so where before you had multiple solutions all doing specialised tasks, you now have a single pane of glass that can drive everything inside the ecosystem - with that efficiency you can also consolidate staff.

    something like cisco meraki is a good example of this and I'm sure it's cost plenty of people their jobs in NZ.
    Yes and no. Cisco meraki still needs people to drive it properly (it's also an awful product imho). And to be really honest the single pane of glass in NZ IT is a bit of a fallacy right now, more through lack of skills and investment than lack of product.

    But, did you accidentally rm rf it on day 1 of a lan?

    I *wish* I could still rm -rf with freedom like back then. If you rm -rf in 2019 your zomboid child probably still manages to lurk along seemingly unharmed.

    What I’m saying is that I’ll do it again if there’s ever another LAN .

    I know of someone recently troubleshooting a core switch recently who used the reacharound method, but apparently the complex config had not ever been copied to flash.
