No amount of log entries can ever prove things are working; a single log entry can prove things are broken.
Haha so I'm watching Sidekiq logs and every time I toot a *lot* of jobs get kicked off 😅
It's remarkable to me that after years of research into graph-databases and specialized data structures (to model social relationships), Mastodon has succeeded with, uhh, Rails on top of Postgres. I love it.
@ashfurrow in my opinion it succeed because of what Mastodon is and how it works not so much because of how the data is store and query. If we leave everything about Mastodon the same but swap postgrees with a graph data Mastodon would still be same. The invers is not true.
@ashfurrow agree. Sometimes I think it's because the top management is incapable of taking a hard look at what they are building and accept that they are gone of the path and work to fix that. Instead they look at what tech they can trow there money at that will automagiclly fix there problem
