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
I'll pretend that me living near moors and like being in a semi rural area made me think of this and the sheep dog I had as a child. Make it really deep or something but I just think doggy cute
@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
here's one of my favourite examples: https://tapoueh.org/blog/2017/12/queen-princesses-and-workers/
so, yeah, a node that makes sure all others stay in the field totally makes sense in the context of… something!
"Can you kill the dog node?"
@roxie main/secondrary is what i’ve said for years
@roxie accidentally starts a revolution to free sheep from the oppression of dogs.
@roxie this may be the single best idea i've seen all month
@roxie But dogs harass and oppress sheeps, no? They do not respect their liberty.
@roxie Hegel's Dog/Sheep Dialectic
@roxie that's adorable wtf
I want to advocate for "head/hand" but I'm the only one I know who does, so yeah
