The Looming R1K Crisis

I am not saying that this being the 947th published post here that the site will blow up when the site reaches 1000 published. I am not saying also that the programmer decided that there was no need to test for this. I am not saying that we are selling R1K tee shirts in the Ratburger gift shop either for 2 for $20 and 1 for $10.01. I am not blaming John for not seeing the inevitable. He assured me there was no need since there would be so few posts here. I am not telling you to stop posting to avert R1K either.

    $ df -h /server
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/xvdb       126G  4.8G  115G   4% /server

    We are currently at 4% of the capacity configured on opening day, 2017-12-10. If and when we need more space, that takes about 10 minutes to configure.

    Sure, and the Titanic is unsinkable and Hillary is president.

    You are just doing this because I went to Def Con d5d. I am glad you are taking this crisis seriously not like an unnamed programmer I know.

    Look at the yellow thingie on the graph.

    The yellow thingie is getting bigger.

    That sounds vaguely lewd.

    Sometimes a thingie is not a thingie, DocLor.

    Nor is it a cigar.

    Here the world is almost coming to an end and you are making jokes. We are 52 posts away from Armageddon and I have even filled up bottles of water.

    DocLor, what are you doing to prepare?

    I am wrapping all my electronics in aluminum aluminium foil. For my hat, I plan on using tin foil.

    That is good to protect the expensive stuff with the aluminium foil.

  7. By the way, depending on how you count we’re already over 1000 posts.  The number of posts displayed on the Dashboard home page is “Published” posts which in WordPress’s typically confusing terminology does not include “Private” posts which are not visible to visitors who are not logged in.  But since this is primarily a membership site and members see Private posts just like those WordPress calls “Published”, many would consider them posts as well.  At this writing there are 964 published posts and 62 private posts, or a total of 1026 posts visible to logged in members.  These numbers do not include unpublished drafts, posts which have been deleted (moved to Trash), or posts scheduled for publication at a time in the future.

    Nice try. When everything comes to an end at 1000 PUBLISHED posts, you will look foolish. Whereas I who had the forethought of seeing this problem will be seen as a genius.

    The gift shop is selling Lifetime Premium Memberships. (You get a FREE R1K tee shirt with every purchase.) My book, “Coming End of the World: The Collector’s Edition”, is on sale.
