Trilema images no longer showing ?

Friday, 25 January, Year 11 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

Back in 2014, Trilema burned ~4TB.

Per month.

Then in 2015, it went rather to 5.

Terabytes.

Also per month.

Then in 2016 it reached 7, and by 2018 I was serving over eleven. Terrabytes. That's over 12`094`627`905`536 bytes, for the precisians among us. Per month.

Then the pantsuits decided to abandon all hope their citadels of ineptitude may matter in the world, and as a result I've served a terrabyte today, and almost two yesterdayi, and so following.

To be sure, it's not all composed of the slack left behind by the regressing femstate, lots of people use Trilema in all sorts of ways. Nevertheless,

Which is to say, less than one in thirteen hundred use almost three quarters of my bandwidth to, specifically,

And so following, because totally, what's google for if not to repackage my fucking content into their pretense of "the world is" and "smartphones are useful" and the whole rest of the bla bla bla.

Yet, I'm not particularly inclined to sponsor idiots so they may continue doing whatever it is it occurs them to do. For which reason, and starting immediately,

Rewritecond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} (?!\.php)(\.[a-z]{3}) [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !http://trilema\.com [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) http://trilema.com/2019/trilema-images-no-longer-showing/ [R=301,L]

Which is to say, that if your referrer's not set to this here sheet of refined taste, good morals and even better behaviours -- you don't get to see any images.

To pre-empt any possible complaint in the vein of "but MP, I don't even have the notion of this 'referer' thing, what do you want from me" : I want from you to set the environment variable so named to the string "http://trilema.com". If what you say is true, and you don't use it for anything else, then you don't care. If it isn't true, then stop trying to pass the buck, because in the simplest of terms : if your browser ain't saying "trilema" my server ain't showing you images. That's the deal, and if you don't like it...

... feel free to write out your complaint below.

PS. Yes, it would be nice if instead of being redirected here, you were redirected to the article the image was "google'd" from. Talk to google about it, aite ?

  1. Let's reason together : what's advertised as "megabit connection" (aka mpbs in ye olde seller parlance) barely counts as 125KB/s. There's a lot of seconds in a day, but if you count them all you only come to 86`400, which is to say less than 100k. The solution to the ratio 10244 (terrabyte) / 86400 (seconds in a day) still comes out to almost thirteen million, and million bytes not million bits. []

    Here's an update:

    As described in the logs, immediately upon activation most of the idiots involved in leeching trilema BW went into the typical mode of idiocy : retry & try again!!!

    This resulted in a lot of pageloads for this particular article, propelling it into the top of most read articles for January (notwithstanding that, obviously enough, nobody fucking read it).

    The daily call for it dropped, however. Taking the Fri the 25th for 100%, it went 196% on Sat (the first full day), 186% Sun, 173% Mon, 167% Tue, 87% Wed, 13% Thurs and it looks well like 1% or so so far today.

    So -- problem solved! On one hand, there's a significant drop in BW usage that precludes any need for me to either buy more or curtail such greats as the recent lion article ; and there is absolutely and entirely no loss on the other hand -- these fucktards weren't anyone's readers anyway. Shooting them in the head does no detriment to anyone but the femstate.

    Needless to say, I heartily (and for reasons! explained reasons!) recommend the above described procedure to anyone and everyone ; and fuck the fucking femstate with a burning iron pike already.

  2. For your kind of volume AWS charges 7 cents each GB. You could have cheaper at 5 cents if you used over 150 TB monthly, that is 5 per day not 1-2.

    I'm not sure what your point is, if anything. Leaving aside how I wouldn't deal with AWS anyway, Bezos' cost structure is actually pretty byzantine : they want 9 cents per GB for 9`999 GB out of 10 TB (nfi why Bezos thinks there's 10`000 G in 10 T, but whatever) plus 8.5 cents per GB for the next 30 TB, plus 7 cents per TB from there on. So on this basis my cost serving the two-odd daily TB I had been serving, ie about 80/month, would come to 9999 * 0.09 + 30000 * 0.085 + 40000 * 0.07 = 6`249.91 USD (do the math). On top of this I expect they'd want to tack various other costs (there's for instance a mysterious "acceleration" fee of 4 cents / GB, not to mention whatever other nonsense they might come up with, "running the instance" what have you) not to mention lulzy ridiculousness like fiat pretender "taxes" and, conceivably, a "code of conduct" too, why not.

    Are you off your fucking rocker, man ?! A hundred dollars still buys me a coupla Ukrainian coeds for the whole night, there's not 62 nights in a month, what the fuck are we talking about here!
