Hey @aurynn, you're doing great with Cloud Island. I appreciate this service and especially the thought you put into making it a good space.
Honestly not sure if it was worth it.
iOS 12.4.1 worked really well (still on some devices because of not wanting to upgrade during pandemic lockdowns). iOS 13.x seems worse TBH (and 14 sounds like a huge annoying visual change, which is why I rushed to install 13 while I still could).
Ultimately running forever without a over a year of security updates didn’t seem like a great long term plan, but I wish “security patches” didn’t involve *everything* else changing...😢
Essentially the only thing I’ve achieved all day (12+ hours) is upgrading a bunch of iPhone/iPads to 13.7 (while it was still available; about to vanish as apparently 14.0 releases tonight, on about 35 hours notice; thanks Apple).
One update failed and required a factory restore for the device. Another device was new and needed initial setup, before it could be upgraded. Triaging 200+ open tabs before upgrading (in case they vanished) took hours by itself.
Did you know, the 1PM daily update HAS A FRIKKIN' IMDB ENTRY!

The fantastic InternetNZ annual conference is going on-line (but of course it is). They're currently looking for speakers / facilitators.
If you're wanting to attend keep an eye on the website for tickets when they come open up.
Hey, just published a great article on how I design and implement infrastructure, and how that shaped Cloud Island.
