I've been building Flóðgátt, a replacement streaming API server for Mastodon. The goal is to cut RAM usage and make hosting an instance that much cheaper.

So far, we've cut RAM for the streaming server of an empty instance by ~94.2%

The next task is to make sure that lower RAM usage can scale without other issues (e.g., CPU).

To do that, I need a test server with enough connections to see how Flóðgátt performs under load.

That's where y'all come in: can you please follow @codesections ?

Reading about that beekeeper in Turkey who couldn’t keep the bears out of his hives so he set up a taste test to see which honey the bears preferred. I love the internet.

Hey , you know everything you buy from Decathlon has a long-range UHF RFID tag on it, and I have a reader with 10m range?

145 unique tags scanned from a quick walk around the Milliways area.

Gardening and DIY are important not just because it gives people more independence and saves them money, but because it de-alienates them from their labor. There are few types of propaganda more potent than excitedly checking your peppers several times a day and thinking to yourself, "what if all work was this fulfilling"

Bought an old camera a few months back, discovered the previous owner had forgotten a roll of film in there. Got it developed and scanned, and it looks like these pics were taken in the 70s, then forgotten in the desert heat and super degraded. They're vaporwave as fuck.

Tomorrow I'm leaving for a vacation. I hate arriving home to rotting food/fruits from a vacation. Also I hate trowing still good food to the waste.

Solution: eat everything from the fridge in random order and hope my guts will tolerate it on the all day long roadtrip to the sea tomorrow.

Did you know that "git checkout -" works much like "cd -" and switches back and forth between two branches?

You're welcome.

Step 1: Don't buy an Alexa device.

How can it possibly still be "private mode" when I'm logged in to your service?

Does anyone here wanna help me fix a UI quirk in @nextcloud that
prevent my disabled friend Maurice from using Talk as a replacement for Skype?

For context, see

As a starting point could someone help me figure out how to make the sidebar open up by default by editing php/js/css files on my Nextcloud instance? I have scanned the code for a while but my web-dev skills are lagging behind the curve really really badly these days... :flan_tired:
