this piece got me whooping and cheering; another brave soldier speaking deep truth about metrics and logs! i was all ready share the gospel about honeycomb -- but he was already there. 🐝 lol god dammit @nickstenning 🌈🍯😉  https://whiteink.com/2019/logs-vs-metrics-a-false-dichotomy/ 

wasn't i just saying what a damn good week it has been for logs, or the structured data blobs formerly referred to as logs?

# You need logs and metrics for any system
# You can derive arbitrary metrics from log streams
# Most metric re-aggregation is inaccurate or plain wrong

"This post is not a pitch, but if you want to see what putting these ideas into practice might look like, you should try out Honeycomb. It’s not an exaggeration to say that if you haven’t actually used a product that does this, it’s hard to imagine how powerful a tool it can be."

stop, stop 😍 i'm blushing! 😍😍

(jk --do keep on for however long)

and at the end, a link that made my blood run cold. read it next time you are tempted to think nostalgically about the bad old days when we had to think about You-Know-What. (h***w***)  https://apenwarr.ca/log/20190216 

i may not miss hardware one byte, but i *have* missed the dark and sardonic humor stylings of the hardware engineer.
O you sweet cynical bastards.

...in this case @apenwarr, who i do not know but followed immediately upon reading "I am more scars than person".

YES, brother.
