In Argentina, to dial a mobile number domestically, the digits “15” need to be inserted after the area code but before the local number, and the “9" after the country code (54) needs to be removed. This transforms +54 9 2982 123456 into 02982 15 123456. 🤨

One of the most valuable things I’ve learned is to be completely clear – particularly with yourself – on what’s a fact, what’s an informed or uninformed guess, and what’s an opinion. 🤓

Yep, we managed to migrate in-situ with no downtime. We configured our nodes so they basically had connectivity to both networks (the IP ranges didn't overlap) while we moved workloads from the old to the new network. cc.

The “drag and drop” behaviour on your iOS app means it’s near-impossible to scroll through a page without fear of rearranging it. Is a fix planned for this? 🙏

What does “in an enterprise context” mean? I work at a company of nearly 700 people and we use Google Meet all the time. It has quirks, but it’s mostly excellent.

I‘m so confused by the persistence of ubiquitous advertising for conferencing services. Given how many great, free/almost free services there are for this, how is there enough margin left in this to support constant advertising from so many players? 😕

Nope. I think they must just have enough data to be able to recognise this rock face somehow. Pretty cool.

Um, somehow (correctly) guessed the location of this photo, which does not have any GPS info, and is of a featureless rock face. 🤯

I've been trying to book a flight on your website for several hours and keep getting either this, or a message telling me I must "modify my search". Is this normal? Horrendous customer experience.

I haven't yet evaluated Please, Buck, or Pants extensively. My gut feeling is they are all to some extent trying to recreate Blaze. Given Blaze has now been open-sourced as , I have the most confidence in that.
