@zatnosk although... hrm I'm not sure what degree of time precision you need for expected loads
@InspectorCaracal yeah, but this is just the timestamp. Pleromas flake id's use 64bit timestamp + 48 bit worker id + 16 bit counter
I'm thinking add 5 characters with the rest of that, then you have 25 bits to share between workers ids and counter. I think that'll probably be enough for a small system (like a fediverse instance with <10k users.)
@zatnosk oh!! I like that
