Surprisingly, Mastodon is the first application where I actively regret self-hosting it.
I mean, eating 1.3GB of RAM after a few days of stabilizing is one thing, but also eating 16GB of HDD just for caching avatars and preview_cards is kinda ridiculous. (And I'm not even talking about media attachments - there is a task to purge old attachments, which makes them manageable).

@Gargron (note that my question is kinda ignorant, as I could have researched your past ideas myself. But sometimes, starting a conversation is easier. Sorry. ;))
@Gargron Instead of using Relays to make federation "better" for smaller nodes, have you ever considered delivering public items to all nodes known to the origin node, and bootstrapping the list of known nodes by some means?
So, hi. Yes, I am one of the #diaspora* core devs, but no, we don't hate Mastodon over there. In fact, I think that comparing micro-blogging like Mastodon to something like diaspora* is a bit... weird.
Anyway, just here to fill some of the micro-blogging needs twitter failed to deliver.
fixing the web at @mozilla during the days, doing more open source stuff at night. diaspora* core dev. working on privacy, communication, and other fun stuff.
Just my private Mastodon instance. Move along.
