Just popped into see if Niu was still alive and get in a last :bun:-post.

So, Niu... what's the consensus on new instance? I've been on for the last few months, it's ok, but it's not Niu.

Where y'all heading?

Welp, I give up. I guess I'll wait until the lights go out here, either a clear alternative will have appeared by then, or I guess we'll just call the experiment a failure. I've been on IRC for ages, and there's nothing wrong with small isolated communities, but as a challenge to Twitter/FB/Reddit, Fedi hasn't even budged the needle. Your average Discord channel has more users than almost every Mastodon instance.

Starting to think that Mastodon was a mistake :( Just spent 2 hours looking for a new home since Niu is going to die, and it's a vast wasteland out there. I've been part of Fedi for 1.5 years and it's worse now than it was then - but the top 5 are all the same ... except for Gab -_- There doesn't seem to be anything else out there quite like Niu for comfy...

BakaBT no longer works with Transmission because their ISP uses a terrible firewall :cirnofacepalm:

Netscaler apparently "prevents" TCP small window attacks by dropping a connection if it ever receives a segment smaller than the initial MSS. I.e. if your MSS is 4096 and you send with a window of 4095, Netscaler drops your connection AND marks your IP as malicious!

Transmission uses a window of 3072 in order to reduce its overhead. A TCP small window attack uses a window of <8 to be effective.

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.
Mr. McGuire: PLASTICS.

mfw I just realized after almost a year that Sōryū is a combat drop in Azur Lane, not a gacha draw. She's the only IJN Kidō Butai carrier I don't have. 😑

Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational ROON!

Niu seems a little bogged down this evening.

Occasionally, I do things.

It’s kind of ironic as well as inevitable that almost nobody gets the point of Agile - it’s not 2 week waterfall, it’s not about replacing one set of rigid processes with the same set of rigid processes in khaki slacks. But in most large enterprises, this is what Agile is - waterfall in business casual.

This actually happened in a game between 2 guys at work... it wasn't a blitz game, either... :facepalm_cirno:
