I am not sure what to think of Mastodon and the Fediverse in general.
I think it is a great tool to avoid lamestream SF-based services that get blocked by governments as soon as they get a whiff of a riot due to the distributed nature.
On the other hand, while I like the worldview of some instance and its members, a large part seems to be in conflict with each other one more extreme than the other. Sometimes outright blocking other instances.
I need to find a better wording.
Note to self.. in case I desire to erect my own instance...
Thanks to the effort of @NS_Online delaying enough trains I am spending time on this obscure little train station due to a failed connection. 😕
Writing software to keep track of ~500 gameservers every minute using AWS resources is borderline impossible on a shoestring budget. So while I love the notion of leveraging the cloud and writing stateless applications, I am going back to using my trusty old unix box again with a relational database server. 😱

#storageops runs! Kinda. Catting /dev/zero into a file goes happens at a speed of about 19 mb/s. Copying a bunch of files over NFS is 1-2 MB/s. :-(
#storageops just got its key components. Tomorrow I'll get the backplane and then its assembly time! :-)
I cannot say I am into #milsim, at almost everything it is one big cringefest!
#starbound was a grind. But I am happy I finished it. :D
