I believe my small instance uses about 30% of it’s single CPU and 1GB RAM.

Who is Andrew Tate anyway? I’ve been avoiding looking him up. Some MMA fighter turned misogynistic podcaster?

Midwest.social is hosted in Germany. We don’t federate with lemmygrad or wolfballs though.

Went to a coding bootcamp a couple of years after college because a bachelor’s in chemistry doesn’t pay well at all.

Live, laugh, latrine

I wonder if we’ll ever see a “ghost in the shell” kind of thing with AI someday.

I’m fine with my instance being sparsely populated. I run this instance mainly for me.

I remember when my Grandpa was still alive he’d get all confused and ask me why Windows was telling him to use certain programs like Edge. I was just like, “Grandpa, they want you to use Microsoft products because they make more money if you do.” and then he got really annoyed.

I had this EXACT problem. Truncate your docker logs. I did so when my storage filled up and it freed like 15 GB.

Here in my city there’s actually a place that is pretty much that. They have a table saw and other woodworking tools that you pay a small fee to use per month and if you want your own space you can join the collective and you get a reserved space big enough for a workbench or two.

1 friend i was trying to convince to join the fedi specifically says he likes seeing ads bc he wouldn’t know what to buy otherwise (enables him to participate more into consumerism)

My former coworker pretty much said the same thing when I was complaining about targeted ads.

Government subsidies and generational wealth from an apartheid era emerald mine.

Storage size on instance servers
I recently had to expand my instance's storage size from 25 GB to 50 GB because it was out of space. How much storage do you all use for your instances? I'm a little surprised that it ran out of space as my instance isn't heavily used. Am I doing something wrong? I prune all the unused docker images, so it's not that.

What thoughts go through your head when you hear someone refer to left-leaning individuals or policies as "liberal"?
Whenever I hear someone use liberal to describe someone or something that is left leaning I just get the sense that their politics are too US-based and kind of roll my eyes because that's not really what liberal means. Is this an appropriate reaction or should I get off my high horse?

What should I do with a spare Pixel?
I recently bought a new phone, so my old phone, a Pixel 4 xl is now sitting around collecting dust. I thought it could be fun to install an actual non-Google Linux OS on it. Any suggestions?
