I am really sorry to say this, but it's fucked. Josh failed and all the money was wasted. It's a broken, bloated complete spaghetti mess. It will never scale to more than 50 users and it will need a very powerful server even for that.

well if it's open source, people can fix it gradually. right?

You don't have much experience developing software, do you. You are entering an area of ignorance best explained by the mythical man month. Similar to the idea that if open source projects with similar goals were merged then development time would reduce and quality would improve.

Without going into detail about why, I'll say that sometimes it's just better to start from scratch. Especially when the lead developer bailed and left behind an undocumented, poorly commented, unfinished with missing commits, bloated spaghetti mess.

If it ever happens, IN needs an adult to sit down with Josh and pour over the code to fully understand what he was trying to do and where he went horribly wrong. Then rebuild what's necessary in a correct and experienced manner. And from there, provide documentation and allow others to contribute. Now, to be fair, codemonkey already attempted this, but Josh is such a gigantic arrogant sperg that codemonkey gave up. This was most likely because Josh was either embarrassed of IN or more likely he didn't want codemonkey taking credit for having fixed it and getting the internet praise for IN.

I know Josh went with AGPL, which I respect, but this project is a lost cause. It simply cannot scale and no one is going to get Josh to fix it and any sane programmer is going to take one look at that bag of dicks and say "fuck it, I'll start from scratch."

This coming from someone who donated and was very vocal about supporting Josh and IN until I finally accepted that it's over.

<StephenLynx> I used firefox timings to separate the time used to transmit the data from the time the data started to being transmitted.
<theFam> lynxchan is not too shabby tbh fam
<StephenLynx> its next that its awful.
<StephenLynx> see how it scales.
<StephenLynx> do the math.
<theFam> laravel takes 98ms to boot
<theFam> :^)
<StephenLynx> yipdity fucking doo.
<theFam> it may scale well tho who knows
<StephenLynx> oh, OF COURSE it will.
<StephenLynx> with those BLAZING fast 5 pages per second per core.
<theFam> you can't know until we have more users
<StephenLynx> yeah, because math might break tomorrow.
<StephenLynx> who the fuck knows.
<theFam> stop being so aggressive jesus
<StephenLynx> ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
<StephenLynx> No.
<StephenLynx> if you were to admit next doesn't hold a candle to lynxchan then I might get off your dick.
<theFam> StephenLynx: are you using any framework or pure nodejs request/response thing?
<theFam> StephenLynx: never
<StephenLynx> pure.
<StephenLynx> so you think that 100x more pages per second is not a big difference?
<theFam> nope

Latency to nextchan:
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 200.810/201.335/202.183/0.698 ms
Average of 200ms.

Time to receive a page from nextchan:
470ms waiting, 200ms receiving.
470 - 200 = 270ms to start sending the page.

I think those are local instances he is running. In which case, the setup would have been useful to know.
