Someone just donated to my Ko-fi and I've no idea who they are because I don't recognise their name from my notifications on here... usually my supporters are people I'm connected to

Interesting thought after watching the latest Philosophy Tube:

Are free software purists living with a phantasm?

You know, the types that yell at people who get paid to work on open source.. because they're getting paid to produce something that's given away for free.

(I don't know the answer to this)

For the first time the Mastodon server has started to struggle just a little bit to keep up with the flow of the Fediverse.

We’ve usually been “push” heavy but we’ve started to see some spikes in “pull” queue latency. The worst of these spikes was today, where we fell behind by at least a couple minutes for most of the afternoon.

1/?

A pair of graphs showing sidekiq queue latency and enqueued jobs. The queue latency peaked at around 6 minutes at roughly 6pm this afternoon, but was between 1-2 minutes most of the afternoon. The maximum number of messages in queue at any one time was 12000. The majority of the traffic is pull queue.

@mick i wonder if it'd make sense to produce log messages for each instance, actor, activity type, directionality and other properties over time & make that graphable?

What percentage of activities processed or sent in the last day were Delete's, what type of activities does Server Y send me?

(Maybe this also ties into @polotek's question earlier today)

@mick just note that article is completely out of date when it comes to the streaming server; I did changes & rewrote the scaling docs for that component.

STREAMING_CLUSTER_NUM is no longer a thing.

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@mick yup, scaling docs absolutely need better info re sidekiq (and monitoring)

Just had a really great call with @aaronpk, and all I'm gunna say is I'm really excited for what's coming.

A one hour call turning into a four hour call is perfectly fine when it's as amazingly good as that call!

@cheeaun @snarfed.org@snarfed.org thoughts on this comment re oauth application vacuuming?

https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/pull/30316#issuecomment-2117768682

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@cheeaun @snarfed.org@snarfed.org yeah, so like public clients can expire frequently, since they're short lived & don't have client_secrets

But for the confidential clients, expiry is harder to set since it can break things; you basically need to go through and re-install the server-based app.

Currently all clients are confidential clients (which they're actually not), so for instant, phanpy would be a public client, since it generates a new client for each browser that loads it for a given server

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@cheeaun @snarfed.org@snarfed.org yeah, but we may actually have a better solution that doesn't require client registration! I'm really excited for this.

TIL: Mastodon has a /api/v1/annual_reports API that gives some sort of annual report for a given user account?

Was added by @Gargron at the start of the year, but the PR just says MAS-213 (so this API is currently unreleased, iirc)

https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/pull/28693

@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@aburka @Gargron maybe? I'm not sure! I've never seen this feature or know any details about it

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@renchap @Gargron would year in review live in the mastodon code or be standalone?

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@renchap @Gargron I might have a junior dev who'd love to build this

Ooooh!! Official support in Mastodon for multiple OAuth redirect URIs is landing, @Claire just added it to the merge queue! 🎉

I think lyrics to The Herd's I Was Only 19 have to be some of the most solemn lyrics in a track, whilst also describing Australian history (vietnam war related)

Learning from @gernotstarke about Quality using the best analogy: coffee! ☕

@coderbyheart tbh, I find ISO specs next to useless to reference infrequently as a developer because each spec costs like €130

Testkube for kubernetes also looks interesting, here's how to create your first test:

Germany gets a CSAM law reform, which, reading this article is likely a positive thing

(e.g., a teacher forwarding material found on a child's phone to parents wouldn't face a minimum 1 year jail time)

Benthos looks really cool too, very similar to TypeStream I think. https://www.benthos.dev/

@mastohost if I'm an admin of an instance, is there a way I can see my full activity log?

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@mastohost @polotek if there's additional activities you think should be tracked I'd definitely be interested to hear!

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@polotek @mastohost aaaah, you're talking about ActivityPub Activities — I was thinking the moderation audit log!

thisismissem,
@thisismissem@hachyderm.io avatar

@mastohost @polotek there's a site like ActivityPub Academy that may be more what You're looking for — it's a fork of mastodon with exactly this added in
