As several people asked -- yes, Delta Chat works in Belarusia even if Signal, Whatsapp etc. suffer blockings. Several people in the DC community are looking into helping things. If you want to help get in touch, and/or maybe contribute to https://opencollective.com/delta-chat
@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!
@daniel social.lodis.se is back!?
This is my attempt to create an introduction video about live coding music & visual for people in Indonesia. The video is in Bahasa Indonesia

Delighted to announce that Magiun #1 is finally out, in digital form, and can be seen, read and commented upon at https://magiun.online

Hello, This is the fediverse presence of the choir the Vocal Constructivists. We make unusual music. Our last project was the opera, 'Irma' by Tom Phillips.
Our current projects include doing a web installation of 'The Metaphysics of Notation' by Mark Applebaum.

Yesterday I described audio, so today I'll describe video! Video, and graphics more generally, is defined by the sheer quantity of data that needs to be generated 30, 60+ times a second.
Even with lossy compression, a feature film takes about a gigabyte of storage. Without it, it'd take 4 bytes per pixel * 1920px wide * 1080px tall * 30fps * 60 s/min * 90min ~= 1.3e12 = 130Gb, excluding audio!
Timing appears to be less vital than for audio.
So how do we get this size down somewhat?
