    overflow cause
    we don't want one lady with a sick kid to suddenly have 50 million dollars
    because the little girl was especially cute
    well, I think a cause can def. have stretch goals :)
    'we need 4k to build a well', 'if we make it to 8k we can pipe water to the town', 'if we make it to 12k we can provide water for the surrounding towns via water carts'
    I think the world needs more smaller, focused causes and less world-visions (not that we dont also need the big organisations) I just think a lot of the little people miss out
    kinda like how prostate cancer research is starved for funding while breast cancer is , because it's easier to sell breasts than prostates x_x

    @DamonOehlman I'm looking at using rethinkDB because it has a neat pubsub feature built ontop of queries, so watching a currently logged in user's messages is easy, then stream them via websockets.
    Not sure if you've experimented much with that
    I'd probably just use the same DB to prototype the rest of the app too, then perhaps move most stuff other than feeds out to maybe sharded postgres
    does that sound reasonable?
    https://hudson-taylor.github.io/ is an SOA/microservices framework I wrote (which someoneweird has been going to town adding features to) which I'm thinking of using, having isolated services for major components, they can feasibly have their own data-stores

    I love pubsub features, but I haven't experimented with rethinkDB yet
    taking a look at HT now
    So the service that a user connects to via websocket, can then connect directly to that user's rethinkDB 'feed' of posts/messages. but posts themselves can live of in a 'posts' service that does other stuff
    It needs documentation :/ the website is something s1w put up, there should be more examples in the readme

    yep, I quickly made my way to github :)
    Hi all, I've skimmed through the message log above, so is yownah a christian oriented social network? Trying to understand exactly what it is, to help me work out if I want to be involved.

    @jason-persson I think if I understand @pomke's vision accurately, it's that crossed with Kiva
    sorry I've been offline all morning
    Yep that's a great explanation
    We're currently at the 'working out what we're going to do and how we're going to do it' stage
    so lots of talking, everyone's ideas and especially prayers would be really welcome
    And at the same time we're talking to people about funding
    If we could get 1-2 fulltime devs and some others working in their spare time
    that would be ideal
    just working stuff out though
    If I had to sum it up, what's on my heart is the church in the developing world has so much need
    And the church in the west is.. Laodicean
    And maybe we can try to fix some of that, shake people out of their sleep

    Hi All, I've spent some time thinking about it and discussing with my wife. Unfortunately I'm not going to have time to be involved. We've got a toddler, and God willing a new one on the way, and coupled with wanting to work on my own projects I'm too time poor to commit with any integrity.
    @jason-persson totally understandable :) you're more than welcome to hang around, I actually created this channel as a general Christian hacker chat, not just for the project
    speaking of which, some stuff went down tonight that's a pretty massive praise point WRT work stuff, hopefully pat and I can share it in the next week or so when the smoke settles. Suffice to say prayer and faith had us hold out in an almost impossible situation, expecting God to come through at the 11th hour, and He did tonight in a massive way :)
    Damon Oehlman
    @pomke that sounds awesome - looking forward to hearing all about it
    @jason-persson I think we are in similar situations, but I'm definitely going to hang around and if there are any little things I can do to help I'll be pitching in. I reckon you should feel free to hang out here as much or as little as you like :)

    Thought for the day: ecc 4:9-12

    Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
    If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
    But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
    Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
    Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
    A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

    I'm claiming this for my wife and I atm, when one falls down the other is there to pick the other up. A cord of 3 well, that's Jesus in the mix, we'll not be quickly broken
    Small updates: quitting $company today (well, giving notice), the hostile takeover has happened and handover will be complete soon. Pat and I have been talking/praying with different Christian business men through this process and the message we've been getting confirmed is that this year has not been wasted time, that the project we've been desiring to build is going to come out of this
    hudson-taylor (the library not the missionary!) was built during this time and will form the basis of yownah/iona
    so .. yeh, good things I think.
    Also I had a prophetic word last week, I was woken up eeeeeearly sat morning and was prompted to get a pen and paper and write
