@Gargron I'd have to dig through my notes when I get home, can't remember offhand.
@Gargron oh well then I fixed it the wrong way. I'll keep that in mind when doing more storage work in the future!
@Gargron Pretty sure I ran into this issue transferring to DigitalOcean Spaces, it would have definitely been useful at the time.
@jackwilliambell Cynically, I don't see this as anything other than an "Embrace, Extend, Extinguish" move.
@Gargron perhaps countries should be running ActivityPub implementations for their heads of state, public officials.
Is the Fediverse prepared for its very own Eternal September? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_September
@BernieOrVest As it is now the Fediverse only has around 4 or 5 million accounts and only a fraction of those are actually active users in a given month. mastodon.social has a little more than 400k total accounts. It won't be cheap to operate a server that's effectively 2x the existing fedi.
@BernieOrVest good news is that if hosting becomes a major expense for you, you have *other* problems to worry about and if you set your organization up the right way, you could qualify for certain incubator incentives from your provider of choice.
@BernieOrVest deploying to a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services, I imagine it'll be $$$ for things such as media storage, readiness to scale horizontally, and to engineer a proper highly available site architecture. Ball park about $20-200k a month for 10m MAU
@Gargron How do you build your images? Do you have a packer script you can open source?
