I started writing the first #SpaceTalkTuesday thread about planetary habitability, but quickly realized you all need some background on how we *find* planets first!

So sorry to everyone who voted for habitability, but we’re doing HOW TO FIND AN EXOPLANET 🔭 today!

I promise this will make the habitability thread next week make even more sense (1/)

Today & maybe tomorrow I'd like to describe the basic theory behind various techniques for building distributed software. What some of the main building blocks are, how they work as nontechnically & briefly as I can, what they're useful for, and namedrop some implementations you might have heard of.

Feel free to expand on this thread with more indepth links or other techniques I've overlooked!

Explicitly out-of-scope is cryptography, that'll be discussed another day.

New project for the weekend: Rocksmith on Steam on Fedora linux.

I am unreasonably pleased that, for the first time I can remember, someone has challenged us using our "Check it is us calling you" system, to verify it was actually us calling because they didn't recognise our phone number.
