Database is growing

Post by Helladamnleet » Tue May 07, 2019 6:44 am

Right now it's at 9.89Mb, and that's with the posts of basically one member. Some of the more die-hard members rack that up in a month or two.

Don't worry, though, I estimate it taking 14,000,000 posts to completely fill the 2Tib hard drive, and by then we'll be on a 10Tib hard drive.

To put into perspective that's about 500 Gustaves

I wonder how slow post lookup would get at that point.
But goddamn, 500 Gustaves isn't nothing.

I might have mathed wrong, because Gustave only had, like, 105,000 posts between all his accounts.
