For the first time in my life, I order pizza online (usually just call). It's exciting to track the order :)
I wish that Shazam would tell me the names of the songs that I randomly start humming in my head
I had my day tomorrow all planned out and only now I realised that tomorrow is Saturday. I could swear that today is Thursday
*where is my mind*
I have created a dedicated account for Masto.host and you can follow it here: @mastohost
I will start doing the announcements there (will boost them here).
This way if my servers go down there will still be a place where you can go to see what is going on. Plus, I feel more comfortable asking new people to follow that account to get announcements and they don't have to follow me.
I have also created a Status page so anyone can see what is the status of the servers: http://status.masto.host/
There was a problem with the load balancing server for Masto.host shared hosting (investigating).
This caused a 5 minute down time but it all should be back to normal now.
Sorry about this.
Masto.host shared hosting notice Mostrar mais
TL;DR - 1 minute downtime
I will be restarting all instances from Masto.host shared hosting to apply a fix to the random image upload 500 error.
Some instances already have this fix applied but will also need to be restarted.
This will cause 1 minute downtime and I will be doing it one by one, it will some hours. Hopefully you won't even notice it.
Let me know if you run into any issues.
*these past few days, not this. You understand me, right?! :)
Today is bank holliday in Portugal. Somehow, I spent the last 11 hours dealing with stuff from Masto.host and installing new instances.
Some pretty cool new instances have joined the fediverse this past few days 🐘
Oh! I miss the old times 😂
Masto.host media uploads Mostrar mais
This past couple of weeks there has been an influx of traffic on Mastodon. Obviously I notice it in Masto.host and the object storage service that I use (OVH) is not playing nicely with Mastodon.
So, some instances may notice occasional errors when trying to upload media. I found a work around but I'm not sure if OVH is OK with it.
While I wait for a reply and if you notice this happen on your instance, do let me know and I will implement this temporarily fix.
All instances hosted by Masto.host are now running v2.3.3 💅
Masto.host instances upgrade to v2.3.3 and username fixes Mostrar mais
I will be starting the upgrade to v2.3.3 in the next minutes and you should expect a minute of downtime on your Masto.host hosted instance some time during the next couple of hours.
The v2.3.3 introduces a fix for a duplicate username issue with lower/upper case. You can read about it here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.3.3
I will run the find duplicate after the upgrade and will contact admins if I find any on their instance.
Masto.host instances upgrade to v2.3.2 Mostrar mais
I will be starting the upgrade to v2.3.2
As always, expect a couple of minutes of downtime during the next hours.
You can view the changelog here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.3.2
Let me know if you run into any problem or have questions.
#DeleteFacebook: Perspective from a platform that doesn’t put democracy in peril
When I was younger I bumped into a book by Osho and he was the first person to awaken my mind to other ways of seeing spirituality. My mind exploded reading that book. Now watching this documentary is like peaking under, I just can’t stop. I think I will take he rest of the day off to finish it :)
