don't think I can upload images right now so here's just a direct link to the picture of it on Wikipedia (it's not supported by unicode properly)

@angristan @benoit Our intution of how distributed systems work is often wrong. Amazon S3 is centralized from the administrative pov, but it's highly distributed and redundant in the ways that matter for scalability and high availability.

The fedivers is administratively distributed, but each instance is a SPOF from the point of view of the users on that instance.

Your instance suddenly went down and you didn't dump all your data the day before? Sorry, you lost all your toots and your network!

@angristan @benoit If each instance buys separate Amazon S3 buckets to store images and serves them via Cloudflare on separate domains... we're effectively as centralized as we could possibly get, while having low cache-hit rate and huge storage costs per instance. I couldn't possible imagine a worst serving architecture for Mastodon 😦

@Gargron, what do you think? Is there a hope for instances to share some content serving infra in the future?

As a train approaches, sometimes the officer on the platform opens these secret console filled with buttons. What can they do from there, and why is it necessary only sometimes?

Peertube 1.4 just came out! Here’s a quick overview of what’s new… joinpeertube.org/en/news/#19-0

Which AUR updater do you use on ?

After yaourt got deprectated, I switched to trizen. I'm happy with it, but a few days ago a friend recommended yay, which has slightly better usability and performance.

I published #Fedilab 2.20.0 🎉

What's new:

- Support for #Pixelfed with a dedicated layout.

- In-app features:
* Scheduled posts, drafts, scheduled boosts, remember position, bookmarks, timed mute, import/export blocked domains.

Also, 十歳 can also be read ととせ (to-to-se), but usually it's just じゅっさい (jussai).

Now I have a 26 minute commute to work, and I even have to switch subway line in the middle.
One step closer to サラリーマン (sarariman)!
