@rra Back in the dark ages when I ran a USENET nntp server, you always had this problem that expiring (deleting) old articles, especially the binaries, would peg your cpu at 100% for hours while your disk was approaching full. Somebody came up with a kind of "circular filesystem" overlay which kept a list of files by date and every time it wrote a new one it would delete an old one. Might be a good feature for fedi servers.
Anyway, thanks for taking care!
