In-reply-to » @prologic I'm taking a look at yarn.social search codebase. Just created a tiny PR to add some documentation around setup. I was thinking that I might start with "Document how to use the query language really well" since that would be a good learning exercise. It looks like maybe https://search.twtxt.net/help would be a good place to put that work. Were you wanting to put any search help text anywhere else in the UI?

Also to give you an idea… This pile of crappy ass code I whacked together on a weekend I think could be a lot more efficient 😅 The Twtxt search space is really not that large to warrant this kind of resource utilisation: – I don’t mind the daily CPU spikes – But even that could be improved I think.

@brasshopper@twtxt.net So right now the code uses bleve to index documents (feeds and twts here) and is also used as the query engine. It has thing thing called MemoryNeededForSearchResult that might be useful here.

Alternatively there is another good Go library for indexing and searching called bluge that I’ve been following, it might be worthwhile looking in to…

Also note that whatever improvements you make here in the global search engine, I’d like to bring across to yarnd itself – So let’s build it like a library as well as a search engine and crawler (server) 🙏

@brasshopper@twtxt.net Yup a /help endpoint sounds good to me 👌

@brasshopper Oh! 🤦‍♂️ That was you 😅 I should have known 🤣 – The biggest thing I want to see improved as well is the memory usage of this thing, it keeps triggering “memory pressure” alarms and its kind of annoying, not really sure what to do about it yet…

I don’t suppose you could talk about the experience and work that goes into a crowd funding campaign? 🤔

@eaplmx Very cool 👌

Woke up this morning to see two different offers from GoDaddy and Aftermarket to purchase my domain name mills.io for $1,000 USD 😳 I obviously declined this, as it is our family name and have had this domain since ~2013 😅 It is actively in use 🤣

In-reply-to » @eaplmx Thanks bud 🤗

@brasshopper Yeah you are right. This is sadly very true. Probably some of it comes down to “education” though. How many people actually understand where their data goes? How many actually understand anything about even the most basic security? What about the meaning of privacy? I’ve managed to teach my young (7r old) daughter the meaning of privacy by showing her that I can see what she watches on on our Plex TV and explained to her that by using “Cloud Services” you are “spied” on in the same way. The difference? She trusts her father 😅

In-reply-to » @eaplmx not to be daft, but ipv6 gaining wide adoption would be a plus. A lot of web 2.0 problems emerge from resource battles over the limited ip4 address space.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I agree, if we all adopted IPv6 already globally world-wide, I mean 100% adoption, we would be in a space where true decentralization would be trivial 👌 – But maybe nobody wants that?! 🤔

In-reply-to » web3 exists because circa 2016 or so, a bunch of venture capitalists figured out how to get a quick payday out of startups by getting them to issue a cryptocurrency ("Initial Coin Offering"), gifting a bunch of that currency to the VC at a discounted rate, and then pumping-and-dumping the rest. The VC avoids liability because the field is unregulated and even if it were the startup is guilty of whatever financial crimes might be present, not the VC. This happened to the tune of many many billions of dollars, flooding the world with cryptocurrencies that then everyone holding them had a vested interest in finding value for so that they din't end up empty handed. What we've watched transpire since is the unwinding of this criminal pyramid of financial bullshit.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Yes you’ve just reminded me just what a stupid idea it is to “store” your “data” in a “blockchain” network 🤦‍♂️ I can’t wait for all thebreachess, privacy and public outcry when people lose their data, or is stolen or all of the above 🤣
