You click a link to a news site, to read an article that seems interesting.
On the page that loads there is the article, but also, somewhere on the right, often near the bottom, there is a small video player. Inexplicably, it was not blocked by your ad-blocker.
It is auto-playing a news video that is not connected to the article. Sound is often on.
@rysiek this post is currently #2 on Hacker News, haha. I would wonder what that’s doing to our traffic, but, we don’t use analytics 🙃
@rysiek ah, a pronounced increase!
@dredmorbius @rysiek I’ve got plenty of room in the ol’ bandwidth budget 😊

@Argus @ashfurrow I... I'm sorry.
@rysiek @Argus it’s all good
@ashfurrow @rysiek Woo! Actually, you can probably watch your nginx access log to get an idea. If you use Netdata, you can get graphs from that.
@Gargron @rysiek ooooo I haven’t set up Netdata since moving off Docker, good idea…
@Gargron @ashfurrow also, goaccess is great for watching your nginx logs. Did this many times when we published something big at $OLDJOB.
