There's an ongoing investigation of a memory leak in gnome-shell - https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/64
And some people are making a little hurricane in a glass of water about it. GNOME doesn't give a FUCK about users; look at this PIECE OF SHIT which LEAKS MEMORY ALL THE TIME.
Memory leaks are just bugs. You can go and fix them. You can help developers investigate them. You can sit quietly if you can't help. Do not pile on developers who are already busy looking at this.
I'm gonna try to put in the time to move the Mastodon blog away from Medium onto our own servers.
Condolences to the person running mastodon.rocks (which lost its database). I know that sinking feeling as you realize that something went wrong.
Let it be a serious reminder to everyone to have regular backups.
I've lost an entire VPS to Scaleway once, it wasn't even anything I did, their hardware just failed. Not having backups is living on the edge.
