Ah, I might know. If the user has been deleted, but servers are caching the user's Actor record locally, then they might accept a message from that user, provided it was signed with their private key. Is the user's private key accessible from outside of Mastodon somehow? In any case, I may need to periodically update actor records or always fetch them from the source system at receive time to avoid this problem.

So my server is getting requests from users at mastodon.social who no longer exist, by which I mean when my server attempts to fetch their public key (e.g., mastodon.social/users/niamonis) it gets a 410 (Gone) response, which I have to assume means their account has been deleted? Except that if I search for that account on Mastodon it shows me that they do exist. It's weird. @niamonisoberano

If you want to run jitsi at scale, please check github.com/jitsi/jitsi-videobr

Cascaded SFUs will allow your conference calls to scale a lot better :)

Also recommended, the following talk if you want to understand the concept:


#jitsi #SFU #webConference #workingFromHome #sysadmin

It took a shockingly long time, but I can finally federate messages to followers with my new platform. This paves the way for a ton of new features. ✔︎

Sorry I need to create a burner Mastodon account for federation testing.

Screw it. Imma go have a beer. Peace out, y’all. 🍺
