Today, mastodon.technology’s Sidekiq worker processed over 800k jobs. omg.
Here’s the last six months, for context.
Boost this if you have no idea what you're doing.
Heading out for the night.
Take care everyone.
Remember, among all the new stuff, a lot of us are here for kindness.

Let's do some open hardware and try to make it interesting.
Because otherwise hardware design might get boring as hell.
Hey #Fediverse. When you post pictures, please please please with puppies on top fill in that description box for the visually impaired. You will be helping us out tremendously. We want to enjoy your pictures as much as others do. You don't have to write a novel, but just fill in some details.
Thanks with much love:

Worried about the dominance of big instances? No, really, this is quite natural.
As an emergent and self-governing system, it could be expected that the size distribution of #Mastodon instances roughly follows Zipf's law.
At first you see the top 6 instances, and then the rest. But on a log-log scale the size distribution is close to a straight line, which would be expected from an emergent system.
Spent weeks trying to implement a rearrange functionality relying on states, when I could've written it more purely and use 30% less code. 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
