haven't been using mastodon as much as usual because the web interface occasionally gets into some weird state where it uses so much fuckin CPU that its annoying to keep it open due to the fan noise
@jk oh no
@jk pretty sure mastodon has been responsible for my laptop shutting off from overheating 2 or 3 times in the past n months but i have no idea how to diagnose whatever it was doing
@Ronflaix @jk @revenant the columns do remove content from the DOM when it's scrolled out of view, but the data is still stored in variables for when you scroll to it again. everything is also normalized because the UI can display the same thing in multiple places, so it's hard to evict stuff. if somebody wants to write a reference counter garbage collector for mastodon, go ahead
(and i dont mean that as "just delete gargron's posts" thanks)
@jk don't know about you but I love software!!!!!
