So I've been using the BunnyCDN trial on mastodon.social's CSS/JS assets for a day and it's got this neat table which data centres the bandwidth goes to. Since CSS/JS assets load mostly only during the first page load on the site, this roughly corresponds to where our new users come from:

man.openbsd.org/%s

man intro.8
vs
man intro.6

No need for add-ons.

Von Neumann is crazy. Has theorems and things in every possible topic I read about

Ok 2019 has been awesome but 2020 has to be the best year yet. What I want to achieve is:

- @anfora Please, you don't know how much I want to work on this but 2019 didn't let me much time
- Work in Ethereum or Cosmos projects (maybe contribute to core code)
- Keep going with my German and Russian. Поехали!
- I want to learn Kotlin and Flutter
- Travel somewhere interesting would be cool too
- Spend more time with my loved ones and friends
