In-reply-to » @eldersnake that's the only thing I can think of -- which we do on the backend anyway for our server-side-rendered web app (SSR)

@bender@twtxt.net I think I might actually follow all three of his accounts, so I hear you’re actually correct in this case. 😆

also need to talk to you about the other case that you discovered that I promised I will try and fix, which I realized I wasn’t completely 100% sure what was going on 🤦‍♂️

remember my goals for this year? To get the mobile app finally released to production with all bugs and improvements addressed? 🤔

In-reply-to » Out of interest, anyone use a secure IRC client for iOS? Ideally E2EE, but open to suggestions. I figure just going to the App Store and finding the first client may be…risky

@screem@yarn.yarnpods.com Don’t know of any myself. e2e IRC encryption is not that common in my experience 😢

In-reply-to » @lyse flawed is the right word, no harsh at all. Good reading, and thanks for supporting the possibility of convincing @prologic to switch to a database! :-D :-P

Anyway, even if I did, which I’m sure I did, it wasn’t intention to say that I hate all SQL database outright, but rather my inner rage in this case comes from developers far too often reaching for that shiny *SQL database (doesn’t really matter what it is), only to discover when you go looking under the covers at the source code and what data is being stored, accessed and manipulated, it could. have been done with a simple embedded KV store or even a SQLite database. But no, instead, you have to worry about this extra component 🤦‍♂️

As a big proponent of self-hosting, I find this an anti-pattern.

In-reply-to » @prologic not me mate, I asked as I was genuinely curious and as someone who only really knows SQL as far as databases go, I keep wondering what life is like on the NoSQL side of the fence 😅

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Maybe maybe not. Depends on what you’re doing I guess. For small things I find simple things are better anyway. KV, flat files, a log, etc.

a large part of this comes from experience, dealing with databases, and SQL many times in the past, and then eventually coming to the realizing that everything is basically key value, stores, bloom filters, trees*, tries and various types of indexes and caches.

For me personally I find it far easier to reason about the data I’m dealing with, what forms it needs to take and what to do with it.

I really don’t understand why I’m getting such a hard time from y’all over my choice of database(s) and data storage/retrieval solutions in general 😢 Why? 🤔

In-reply-to » 👋 Sheesh! I’ve been gone for a good while. Lots of stuff going on between work, new sleep schedule for the kiddo and other personal things. How’s everyone going over here?

@screem@twtxt.net Hey hey! 👋 INce to see you again and good to know you’re doing okay 👌 – We should maybe catch-up for a beer or something since we’re now geographically close to one another 🙏

In-reply-to » @bender @prologic I've went further down - sometimes to seek something I've read and caught my attention at the time, othertimes to reference old threads in new ones. In this context, nothing is "too old".

@bender@twtxt.net fetched on demand, implies some kind of client-side JavaScript; so probably not.

However, there is another way that we talked on IRC last night…

Which again leads to searching and indexing the archive 😆

In-reply-to » I've never liked the idea of having everything displayed all of the time for all of history.

@eldersnake Sorry, @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org just pointed out to me on IRC at some ungodly hour this morning (woke up for some reason) that all my arguments are flawed 🤣 Regardless of my experiences and reasoning, I prefer to use bitcask for most things “dadtabase”(ish) and the “right data structures” for things I’m working with, be-it a key/value store, in-memory hashmap, write-ahead-log(s), indexes, etc. Perhaps I find it more comfortable and easier to use lower-level libraires to solve the same kinds of “data” needs.

In-reply-to » regarding the spam, bots and spam accounts, that we seem to be attracting lately… What if we build a feature where instead of just completely open registrations, we change this to accept an email address that sends an email to the pod operator with a link to accept or reject the registration?

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci That’s okay 😅 You don’t have to in order ot enjoy the software 🤣 I just have to pay attention to you and the community and not build or break shit people don’t want 😝
