Why the modern world is bad for your brain | Science | The Guardian
Multitasking has been found to increase the production of the stress hormone cortisol as well as the fight-or-flight hormone adrenaline, which can overstimulate your brain and cause mental fog or scrambled thinking. Multitasking creates a dopamine-addiction feedback loop, effectively rewarding the brain for losing focus and for constantly searching for external stimulation.

glibc changed their UTF-8 character collation ordering across versions, breaking postgres
This is terrifying:
Streaming replicas—and by extension, base backups—can become dangerously broken when the source and target machines run slightly different versions of glibc. Particularly, differences in strcoll and strcoll_l leave "corrupt" indexes on the slave. These indexes are sorted out of order with respect to the strcoll running on the slave. Because postgres is unaware of the discrepancy is uses these "corrupt" indexes to perform merge joins; merges rely heavily on the assumption that the indexes are sorted and this causes all the results of the join past the first poison pill entry to not be returned. Additionally, if the slave becomes master, the "corrupt" indexes will in cases be unable to enforce uniqueness, but quietly allow duplicate values.

Moral of the story -- keep your libc versions in sync across storage replication sets!
