@sickburnbro @lichelordgodfrey I also always assumed it was the psychological trick, that’s why I found it curious when I read that. Not sure how accurate it is but found multiple sources claiming this as a fact.

Curious fact: The original intention why businesses started to use odd pricing (example $9,90, instead of $10) was to force the cashier to open the register to give change and in that way record the sale. Round numbers, on the other hand, would make it easier for the cashier to pocket the money.

@yes @evelyn True, the problem is that the majority of people have AV installed and have no knowledge. So, they assume the AV knows best. Can become tricky to get more people to start using small decentralised communities.

@stux Oh, that makes sense. Thank you for letting me know.

@stux Thank you so much for sharing.

How did you mstdn.social out of VirusTotal? I could do it on CRDF Threat Center but don't know how I can do it on VirusTotal.

I have made a post about some Mastodon instances being associated with malware and explaining what I found: github.com/mastodon/mastodon/d

I think it can be interesting for people who are + would love to have people from have a look and share any feedback. Thanks.

@PJFDF @brunomiguel @jpaulostrindade @r3pek @aurocha Also liked it but only used it a couple of weeks when it was first released. So, can't say much about it.

I have decided to commit to a limit on the maximum number of instances or percentage of the Mastodon network that I will host on Masto.host.

You can read about it here: masto.host/the-25-percent-comm

@brunomiguel I have a very old laptop that works (not sure how the battery is). I have installed Linux on it recently for a test and it still works. If you ever need something to hack, I can give it to you.

@DJPRMF @brunomiguel I tried Brave Search and was honestly impressed but for things that I search regularly in Portuguese or about local information, it doesn't work.

But it's impressive that they can do a decent search engine without using Bing.

@brunomiguel For email, I am currently using Fastmail, it has been rock solid but it's paid.

For search it's a bit tricky, for local search and language/country specific searches in Portugal I haven't found a single replacement that I can reliably count on without falling back to Google.

Also don't know of a free alternative to Photos. But if you want a "hackish" solution and have an old computer (let me know if you don't) you can always host Nextcloud/Owncloud from home or something.

I am blown away by the results I got from testing SeaweedFS to copy small files 4.8GB (45651 files) via s3.

When compared with Minio it really shows.

Using HDD:
SeaweedFS: 3m28.9s
Minio: 14m15.9s

Using NVMe:
SeaweedFS: 15.5s
Minio: 21.8s

@pedro eu GBs tenho montes, o problema é que não vejo isso em produção mas em testes é superior em tudo. Estou tão tentado a perder tempo com isso.
