On the upside, mastodon.social receiving such high load means I will optimize the heck out of my code eventually which will benefit all smaller instances also
@Gargron i think many of us have been there :-)
@Gargron I believe, in the industry, this is known as "a good problem to have"
@Gargron Do you mind if I call the fail-mastodon the "hellephant?" It rolls off the tongue a bit better. :)
@fluffy elephant friend
@Gargron Yeah, but if we're in a "fail whale" situation then the elephant friend isn't having a very good day, right?
@Gargron How about "elephriend?"
@Gargron I'm super excited to get mastodon running on the smallest heroku possible.
@Gargron also, it will clearly not be premature optimization, too! win-win.
