    Now *that's* a number. Which bot is it? I'd love to read a longer post on how you've scaled it that high.

    @synemeup It's not really a complex bot. It's used for searching for anime art.

    Scaling it was quite easy. All I really had to do to change a few things to keep memory usage down and manageable. It currently eats 10GB of RAM while running.

    So I made my own tagged image CDN.

    I may go into more detail of how the whole thing works in a proper blog post.
