I'm exceptionally hyped by the amazing tech Paul Frazee and team are building. 🤩
If you care about a decentralized web, this is something to watch.
Regardless of what you think of Julian Assange, this is a welcome win for press freedom and human rights. I hope he is released post haste, can return to his family, and can claim compensation from all involved governments for his inhumane treatment.
Just ran the same WebSocket load tests with #SiteJS on a 2 vCPU VPS with 2GB RAM and it started dropping messages (1 message/sec) at around 10K concurrent connections.
I’m more than happy with that as a starting point. (That’s not what we need to optimise. For context, I have 7.24K followers on the fediverse after 3 years. We won’t start hitting those limits on the #SmallWeb for a while.) ;)

🎉 It is time! #Mastodon 3.3.0 is here! What's in it? Have a look:
Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.
