Windows 3.11 feels.
I spent the 90's raging against Microsoft and being a massive Linux and BSD zealot. I don't think I was _wrong_ or anything, but I wasn't totally prepared for the feelings bringing up a Windows 3.11 instance on the Internet was going to have.
Windows 3.11 was s pretty consistent experience. It was with Windows 95 that GUI designers really started being creative / ignoring all the HCI guidelines.
We had over a million entries in our sidekiq queue here on tiny.tilde.website and ... 5 workers popping stuff off.
This has caused a lot of federation delay, and many many of these jobs are duplicates and retries. I nuked the queue and started over. This can lead to some desync between fediverse instances -- I don't really have a good fix for that, but I don't have a lot of confidence we were going to catch up on that queue at any reasonable rate.
