  • I’ll repost what I said in another thread. Like OP, I am glad that this is getting made. It is not something you typically see in anime/manga and a diversity of options in media is a great thing.

    I had read a portion of the manga a while back. I didn’t think this manga provided anything novel enough to keep my interest, but for a certain segment of the population, the art was exactly what they are looking for. So, if you are a big fan of the teaser visual, expect basically an anime with fan service about women that look like that.

    This series is like the anti-How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift. It revolves around an elf that finds human food, specifically french fries, so delicious that she just can’t stop eating them and, despite the male lead’s best efforts, is unable to lose weight. There is a veritable smorgasbord of female characters built similarly to the elf from the visual in this series in what is likely the highest average BMI harem in manga. I call it a harem, but in what I read at least, there aren’t really any romance elements, more just friendship, slice of life, and nutritional counseling.

  • They refederated a couple hours ago (source). @antik@lemmy.world made a post clarifying things over in the meta thread on ani.social’s site and cleared things up.

    I understand people’s frustrations with seemingly arbitrary moderation decisions like this sometimes, but I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes making calls like that for a large instance like this. It is heartening to see that the review process did not take long and the decision reversed fairly quickly (<12 hours). This stands in contrast to the lemmy.ml admins that defederated ani.social for seemingly no reason and locked all discussion about it and it still stands. So, props to antik and LW admins on this one.

  • This lines up with my experience. I have nextcloud and wordpress on two different vps’s and just checked their ram usage.

    • nextcloud: 468 MB
    • wordpress: 120 MB

    Caveat to the above is that nextcloud is installed bare metal rather than docker and I have both nextcloud and wordpress set up to use object storage as the media back end.

    edit: To add to this OP, the reason we are only talking about ram numbers is that the cpu usage for these applications (with primarily only a single user) is pretty much zero most of the time, so you aren’t going to be limited by the single core machine.

    Also, depending on your use case (large amount of data on nextcloud or large media files in wordpress), you might run out of disk space pretty quickly. In those cases, you should consider using object storage as your nextcloud or wordpress media backends as it is cheaper than block storage (there are plugins/tutorials to configure object storage and Linode offers it).

  • Vancouver Carpenter is the best channel for drywall hands down. Guy is a professional drywaller, but still covers all kinds of basics and common mistakes. Drywall is one of those things that you aren’t going to be good at when you first try it, even with the right technique. The only way you are going to be good (or good enough) at it is to just do it over and over. So, don’t beat yourself up if you aren’t happy with the first couple seams/patches you do.
