Meltdown/Spectre vulnerabilities and Masto.host Mostrar mais
Has you probably know some vulnerabilities were found that make most computers vulnerable to attacks.
My hosting provider (OVH) is starting to install patches on servers to try and reduce the impact of that.
Some parts of their infrastructure will need restarts and some unexpected downtime can happen.
Sorry about that and I will try to keep you posted if I find more information.
You can read their announcement here: https://docs.ovh.com/fr/dedicated/information-about-meltdown-spectre-vulnerability-fixes/
It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes guts to be gentle and kind 🎶

v2.1.0 brings many improvements and features. I particularly like that now we have an invite system for instances that have closed registration. You can check all release notes, here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.1.0
I will be upgrading one of the servers of Masto.host shared hosting now and a small percentage of instances will go down for 10 minutes (this instance Masto.pt included)
Dark humor, stay way Mostrar mais
Problem solved, everyone is up and running.
A small percentage Masto.host shared hosting instances are currently down because there was one server that froze and I had to restart it.
ETA: 15 minutes

"Bitcoin miners will consume an estimated 8.27 terawatt-hours per year"
"Global production of cash and coins consumes an estimated 11 terawatt-hours per year, while gold mining burns the equivalent of 132 terawatt-hours. And that doesn’t include armored trucks, bank vaults, security systems and such. So in the right context, bitcoin is positively green."
