No, they're not exclusive, but they are definitely correlated with ethnic groups from specific geographic regions. I can pull some articles if you want. I'm just trying to understand this no scientific race thing, I've heard it a lot but don't get it.

I still think the simpler explanation is a real plane. We're talking like 10 camera angles, some of which only came out years later. And lots of eye witnesses saw the second plane.

I'll look into the plane shaped hole. From what I remember the major structural beams were mostly left intact.

If a thousand men were not to pay their tax-bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood.

I tried to get to the bottom of the Shawn Lucas death. The "official" cause of death is fentanyl, cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxant), and mitragynine (kratom). But the only source of this autopsy information seems to be heavy.com who somehow got talked D.C. out of it. Because of D.C. privacy laws, the autopsy is only released to family members.

So his inclusion on this list is sounding pretty unconfirmed to me.

These are prices for 'new customers'. It's Comcast/NBC, they have a monopoly in many places and roll dirty. They consistently get the lowest customer satisfaction rating nation wide. My only other options are very slow ATT DSL or the Hughes satellite internet.

  • 275 Mbps $80

I'm able to get really good deals on vps's and turn them into a cdn.

So you just have tons of servers with like 30gb hard drives each? That's pretty clever. I would have expected you to be using block/object storage or something.

They claimed at one point to be spending $5,000 a month on Azure just to get the throughput needed (at that point you try caching).

I remember this insanity well. I was on there nagging them to port to linux for cheaper hosting... not sure if they ever did. But yes, they had to have been missing the boat on caching somehow. I imagine that Putt didn't have the dev skills to fix it, and the first dev was long gone. It's a good example of how tech decisions can absolutely cripple your whole company/site.

I dig your minimalist CSS... it could use a bit of polish from a designer person but whatever. I like your 2x menu and the hamburger customization options.

I've never heard of pic8 or jssocial, i'll check it out. I will start recommending your site in addition to PeerTube. Your search functionality is better than BitChute already. Here's my PeerTube instance I'm running for $10/mo. It's kinda dead, but I was one of the first American instances. I also got a commit accepted that lets you use block storage with PeerTube.

It's mostly for collecting videos that would otherwise disappear. https://tube.4aem.com/video-channels/fedfuckersinc_channel/videos (no a/b testing on my CSS and it shows!).

These Twitter extremists are gonna "ruin" diversity just like they "ruined" feminism. I guess we're already there. Pushing too far, the rubber band snaps back hard.

Seems like a dead project but I love the focus on trying to crack the monetization issue. I think PeerTube let's you add a Patreon link to your vids and that's about it.

Thanks portcity. I'm pretty smitten by PeerTube already but I'll check it out.

Nice man, that's quite a takedown. Damn I'm gonna go cry in a corner now too... he's got some good videos on privacy and his heart seems to be in the right place. I was thinking he could adopt me or be my grandpa or something.

you can do it just like your last pull request, if the "msgid" is already defined. If it's not, just add the default/english version of any underscore function string here:

https://github.com/libertysoft3/reddit-i18n/blob/master/reddit_i18n/en/LC_MESSAGES/r2.po#L10388

And then you can translate it in another language file. I'm happy to assist further or explain more if that wasn't clear. Thanks for your efforts.

PinePhone is available for order and is shipping asap https://store.pine64.org/?product=pinephone-braveheart-limited-edition-linux-smartphone-for-early-adaptor

How great is it that there's competition in this space, with Purism and Pine both kicking ass and getting linux phones out there shortly.

If you're talking about our Global Bans system, sure, we could surface that wherever. I think there's a user.is_global_banned property or method that we can call wherever.

I'd try to render it wherever the existing code renders 'deleted', if that works.

Reddit is currently putting in new algorithms designed to ghost users. They will post and see their posts. But the posts will never be seen sorting by r/new or any other sorting method. They are ghosting entire subreddits right now. The algorithm is live. by salvia_d in conspiracy

Maybe I'm just baked but this article is written like shit and makes no sense. There's contradictory claims and no evidence.

I think there's just shadow bans and mods removing content that makes it to the top of /r/all. Automatic reddit/admin level censorship of certain urls (4chan and 8chan) which cannot be overridden by mods is an actual story imo.

I think if all the things you recommended were done, with the thumbnails and static and css being on other servers, that'd probably give us like 4x-6x the traffic capacity for the main server. And we can probably handle about 4x normal traffic on our current setup without changing anything before it really slows down. So combined that'd be 16x-24x our current traffic.

Agreed

Then once we hit those limits we can start upgrading the main server to have more CPUs, of course. Maybe research what plan you would upgrade to next, so we can do it quickly if necessary.

I'll keep this in mind, but I think we need to plan on horizontal scaling (more servers) rather than vertical scaling (more powerful server). For example with popular hosting company Linode ;) 4 cores is $40 a month, but 8 cores is $160/mo. So we could have 4 servers and 16 cores for the price of a single 8 core server. Splitting the traffic to different servers can be done with a load balancer server in front of the other servers.

"only serve 4 requests at once right now" Can you tell me more about this? Is it a setting in nginx? Can this number be expanded by increasing the number of CPUs? Is that the only way?

This is the number of CPU cores we have. Yes I believe more cores is the only way to serve insane traffic levels, but then you get into maxing out what a single network card can handle as well.

Shit I'm scared and making a backup now... hahaaaa.

If we were to suddenly get say 5x the number of users, what would our hardware bottleneck be, do you think? The CPU?

No clue. If I had to guess I'd say yeah probably CPU limited since we have 8GB of RAM and aren't hosting chat on the same server anymore. But CPU limited at the nginx level, like there's not enough CPU to handle all of the incoming requests and requests have to wait. (we can technically only serve 4 requests at once right now). I think a natural progression of scaling is for us to host all of the thumbnails on a separate domain and server, so those requests don't hit the main server anymore. Also custom sub CSS. So any url starting with 'static' or 'media' could be handled on a separate server.

Cassandra and postgres can also both be on their own servers in the far future, if local disk space becomes the issue. It's all figured out aside from being stuck on Ubuntu 14. I hope to get back to that challenge sometime soon.

Heck yeah! Is this our all time best rank? I forgot where we peaked last time. This US rank of 15,700 is pretty amazing too.

Thanks. Some of these extremists have such thin skins, I'm kind of shocked. If they won't get down in the mud and debate, they'll never win anyone over.

I use plenty of languages that I dislike... and no doubt most Java programmers aren't using it by choice. It's important to know how different languages stack up against each other. Java has a reputation for being over engineered.

I mostly use PHP and Python and Javascript. C# is imo the Java re-do that we all needed.

Not to mention Oracle. Ugh.
