- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

Please boost.

I made a flow chart of which #Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.


From 100+ million miles away, our New Horizons spacecraft e made its first detection of its next flyby target, Administrator Jim Bridenstine visits our west coast facilities, and using data from space to fight a life-threatening disease - these are a few of the stories to tell you about This Week at NASA!

This leaf has jagged edges. This rock looks loose. From this place the snow is less visible, even though closer. These are things you should notice anyway. To live only for some future goal is shallow. Itโ€™s the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top. Here's where things grow." โ€” Robert Pirsig

"Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you are no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn't just a means to an end but a unique event in itself...

A popular DRM-free game store GOG with a new informative website: FCK DRM.

Raising the awareness of this defective by design technology. Its aim is supposed to fight piracy, on which it doesn't work at all.

Did you know that there's a killswitch in your games, books, music, movies, apps?

It's called DRM, and it can block your access to things you bought. You can still take control by choosing DRM-free sources.

Positive folk of Mastodon, I want to share a tradition of mine with you.

Each week, we my wife and I write a note with good things that happened throughout the week. We then add these notes to a year.

On #NewYearsEve, we empty the jar and read about the amazing year we had. It's obviously great to finish/start a year this way, but it's also nice as it "forces" us to contemplate the last week and appreciate the good things that happened, even when things were stressful or felt very mundane.

A Hetzner connectivity issue has interrupted communication between one of the database servers (replica) with the rest of the mastodon.social infrastructure.

I have temporarily disabled usage of the replica which will reduce our traffic capacity, because the replica is out of sync with the master database it's not usable right now.
