Did I dream it or there used to exist a Mastodon rake task to create a user with a username in the reserved_username list? Eg: create a user with admin or root as the username

In my head Bitcoin is always at $10k, it helps to have a rough idea on the values when looking at bitcoin, eg:
0.1 = $1000
0.01= $100
0.001= $10

Highly inaccurate but I find it helpful :)

I just realized that there is no single legal way to stream Game of Thrones in Portugal. In fact, no HBO recent shows are available for legal streaming in Portugal.

Did you know that communitywiki.org/trunk exists?

It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.

Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.

If you are new to Mastodon or you are looking for more interesting people to follow, you should check it out.

Sometimes not even I understand my humor. The strangest things make me laugh 🤣

I had to block some external instances on Masto.host shared hosting.

Here is why and how that can be reverted: masto.host/i-had-to-block-some

This was a tricky decision but couldn't think of a better solution.

If you have any suggestions, please do let me know.

If you're the admin of any of the instances listed below, you may wanna look at this link from @mastohost, as they had to block your instance.

Please c/p, as boosts won't work due to the blocking. 👍

I know it's Saturday and you are all getting ready to go party :P but I would like to ask you to do this before you masto.host/changing-your-insta

It's not mandatory and nothing will happen if you don't but I think you should *wink wink*

This will hopefully be the last time I ask you to play with DNS settings.

Currently managing 727GB of RAM, crazy!

This is just a test image, still cute but it's just me testing stuff :P

Goal for the day: increase automation without breaking stuff

Sounds easy enough :P

I really really need some Mastodon dev help with this github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/
Anyone? Pretty please

I am getting reports of an issue where a Mastodon service gets halted and only after manual restart it comes back.

I have just reported this: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Please keep an eye out until I manage to understand what is causing it and let me know if you experience some odd behaviour in your instance (timeline not updating, stuck in "under maintenance page").

Thanks

I have been working for 7 hours and only now realised that today it's a public holiday in Portugal 😋

Sometimes when I am playing around on live production servers, the voice of Ralph Wiggum comes to my mind: youtube.com/watch?v=HdKqAVpUOw

My morning was spent creating a bash script that converts a port number to a valid CIDR to use as unique subnet in Docker.

According to this article, @MrHodl is the founder of Mastodon, @mattodell is a developer and I am operator of open-source Bitcoin payments solution BTCPay.

I really have trouble of thinking of ways to add more false information in a single line of text 😂

Testing Google News and got this notification.
So, this is what Google AI thinks is relevant to me 🙃
