i clicked "join room", i opened obs, recorded the "joining room" loading thing for a few seconds, cropped it to only show the loading thing and nothing else on kdenlive, which i never really used as much before, rendered, and it's still loading
either dendrite's "beta" label is a lie and it's basically unusable, or the matrix protocol sucks and is inefficient, or i set up something wrong (but if that's the case why didn't their federation tester report anything wrong?)
at least it's barely using any resources when it's freaking out, so still better than synapse!
three federated rooms, one being somewhat active, conduit's cpu usage is 0% (or low enough to not register on ctop), and ram usage is lower than my nodejs TiddlyWiki server
it's still 3x the ram usage of prosody (which is at the moment has no activity), but this is impressive compared to my previous experiences with matrix (specifically, synapse)
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
