Was there a Ushahidi deployment last year for snow removal in the US Northeast?

[Brad Anthony] Hi Ushis! Skill testing question for anyone interested. Stress-testing Ushahidi: how many reports have an adverse affect on the platform?
Nov 10 2015 09:43 UTC
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] That will most likely depend on the infrastructure running the platform.
[Brad Anthony] Theoretically, if we had 20,000 reports and things started slowing down, would it be feasible to limit how many were displayed on the map at any given time?
Nov 10 2015 09:50 UTC
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] although we wouldn't load all posts at once...
[Brad Anthony] Not usually no, but if someone is looking at a map of the world, and 20,000 reports are trying to load, that might be a bit odd
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Right now.. it'd probably kill your map
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] But I have a branch that loads posts in chunks to keep the map alive.. just never finished merging it
[Brad Anthony] Would it make a difference initially if the map is centered on one country and loads only reports in that view? So the problem would theoretically compound as viewers zoom out?

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] alrighty folks - getting this error when i run "gulp build" when trying to build the client
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Error: Cannot find module 'dc' from '/Users/ObiWanKenobi/dev/platform-client/app'
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] odd.. did 'npm install' run cleanly?
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] for the first time in three days, it actually did
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] shall i "uninstall" and run it again?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] no..
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] what version of node are you on?
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] sec, let me check
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] v5.0.0
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] also, for context, here's the first part of the error
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] [21:13:07] sass/vendor.scss
