๐Ÿ’ Lucian Marin Not only bad TV shows makes you feel that way. I felt like losing my mind because newer versions of PostgreSQL are running on port 5435 instead of 5432. Subreply was down for an hour. But I upgraded entire stack to latest versions. Page loading is down from ~110ms to ~60ms on my end.
๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Impressive. I've sometimes clicked a link here and blinked at the same time, wondering why the site was so slow. The new page had already loaded.
๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst When I look at my feed, some of the posts are white text and others are in gray text. I haven't been able to figure out what each of those mean.
๐Ÿ’ Lucian Marin It was a single stream of both threads and replies. Now Feed is for ๐Ÿงต and Replying is for ๐Ÿ’ฌ from people you follow.

๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst One reason I come back here is because this entire site loads in less than 130ms. It's just so refreshing, and that's even with the actual host being 15ms away.

๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst I can't wait to see the results of the work Microsoft put into security back in the early 2000s. Any day now.

๐Ÿ’ Lucian Marin Mastodons have gone extinct for the very same reason, slow, easy to hunt down.
๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Thank you for making this! Have you written about the design / tech anywhere?

๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Oh, I love how fast this site loads. Even Mastodon could learn a thing or two.
