Neither sms your code, nor email you code works, when downloading your twitter archive, ergo: can't download my twitter archive. Maybe scrape the site while it's still up?

Which browser do you use?
Thanks for any boosts! I wanna know!

No. Nobody should have an opinion on things like MAX_THREADS or CONCURRENCY_POOL or WEB_COUNT in your application.

Its not an "education" problem with administrators not understanding your stack. Its application problem, and in this case a programming language problem.

Your app should dynamically allocate itself as needed like nginx, redis, postgres and all the other services.

We shouldn't be asking operators to get "good" at doing "bad" things.
