This seems to be the case right now, yes.

That was the original idea of IPFS, no? Just that they pivoted now to trying to sell you filecoins :(

I see, well that is one risk less then. I guess with automatic down-scaling in pict-rs 0.4 it will be mostly solved as there will not be a bunch of 5mb direct uploads.

Edit: well thumbnails at least are definitely cached, larger images too, I just tested it on slrpnk.net Edit: odd, but not all of them. Something is strange… Ah I think I know what is happening… actual user uploads do not get cached, but images from linked websites do, even if the origin is a federated instance. But those website images are usually quite well optimized.

That sounds promising. Any idea when 0.4 will be released?

Object-storage on large cloud providers is not an option for me for various reasons (privacy, legal etc.).

How much of that is cached from federated instances though? I can hardly imagine a low-traffic community like that uploaded 1.6GB of their own images already. If it is mostly cached then that can increase very quickly as new users subscribe to additional communities on other servers.

Lemmy Pict-rs storage requirements?
I might take over one of these one-year-free hosted Lemmy instances on my server infrastructure, but I read several times now that Lemmy's image hosting system Pict-rs is using a lot of storage quickly. The server I could run this on is limited to 32gb ssd storage with no easy way to expand it. Is there some way to limit the image storage use and automatically prune old images that are not user or community icons or such?

I wonder if this has a similar effect on older intel HW… would probably help with Vulkan using emulators.

Microblog.pub a minimalist ActivityPub server
Kinda nice that it is also accessible via Gemini it seems.

Yeah, I hope there is an easy way to also add Steam Bigpicture mode from this launcher. Sadly the KODI plugin for that has problems, but this looks like an excellent replacement for KODI.

Without having been involved too much in the community I would guess it is a factor of two things: a general move towards chat based discussion and that fediverse tools have matured enough that people can dogfood them instead of using an external non-federated forum.

Yes it uses Astericks internally an you can hook that up to any voip service or even your own land-line or GSM modem. But to be honest the setup is quite involved and only for advanced sysadmins.

Good to know. Maybe it is possible to store user and community avatars separately from other user uploads to avoid such problems in the future?

Any idea when the broken image problem will be resolved?

Any thoughts on why it has waned? Maybe it would be better to analyze that first?

Its all open source, you can self-host it. But I agree, it is more useful for US or Canada based users given the limited selection of country codes.

tl;dr? If you ask questions don’t expect people to first watch lengthy videos.

According to the dev it will be possible to enable pro features on self-hosted instances once the sync server is open-sourced.

Yeah, and they get really offended if you tell them that…

Made this with the Stable Diffusion AI “Pikachu as corgie” was the prompt:

The entire shtick of this is that the server communication of it is e2e encrypted. If you don’t want server syncing why are you even considering this?

Apparently they also plan to open a self-hostable sync server this month.

Lots of images broken on lemmy.ml?
It is just me, or are there a lot of icons broken on Lemmy.ml since a few days? I also get a lot of time-outs when posting stuff. Some ongoing attack or problems with the hoster?
