and 100%'ing kswapd, which is ... obviously not ideal.

So now sidekiq lives on a 2GB node all its own, though I may swap it to 2x 1GB nodes

My UI goal is basically “Tweetbot but Mastodon”

Okay gonna do some billable time today and then some iOS dev as a treat. I wanna get my Mastodon client to at least a UI prototype by the end of the week

idk something

Thank you all for being here.

You’re the best.
