I'm a genius. Replace master/slave problematic language in programming with dog/sheep. Not problematic but also u get to think of lovely dogs and cute sheep on a field. I'll accept my Nobel peace price in the mail


@roxie oh damn that's good

i usually just use terminology like "primary" and "read replica"? but that's cute as hell

@00dani cause the doggy program go's awoo and then the Sheepy ones go baa and then do the thing

@00dani @roxie the cool thing about different metaphors is that they make different kinds of prefect sense in different technical contexts and we should definitely use them!

here's one of my favourite examples: tapoueh.org/blog/2017/12/queen

so, yeah, a node that makes sure all others stay in the field totally makes sense in the context of… something!
