for the unaware, in Australia, lots of ISPs won't peer with cloudflare, either because they don't peer at australian IXes or they're just being dicks...
in response Cloudflare forces them to pay for transit by preventing Austrlian DC routes being propagated to the companies that won't peer to them in AU, which means I have to connect to Hong Kong, Tokyo or L.A. to connect to cloudflare free/pro sites. Australian internet is already slow enough so it just adds insult to injury for consumers
considered bunnycdn but no websocket support, considering cloudfront or something instead. uwu.social (not includin gfiles.uwu.social) doesn't use much bandwidth since it's just AP + FE + websocket...
maybe I could try turning cloudflare off for a bit and see if it's really that unbearable for me, might turn out to be OK or even faster?
I'm impressed with bunnycdn and no one has had any problems with it so I think it'll stay. for comparison if you want to measure speeds, the origin is origin.files.uwu.social, which connects directly to the box it's stored on.
it's not that big of a deal but it'd also be nice to move away from cloudflare on the main site, security/protection isn't really a big deal for me (obviously, since the IP's public anyways) - it's mostly speed that I'm after.
not sure why but mastodon isn't creating notifications for a user on uwu.social even though they aren't blocking anyone and don't have notifications disabled for the people they mute.
the DB shows that the faves/follows themselves were inserted, but the notifications were never inserted. can't find anything about this on the issue tracker
