I have decided to introduce new plans for Masto.host: https://masto.host/pricing/
This change will only affect new subscribers.
If you are already using the service, nothing will change, same pricing and conditions will continue to apply.
I offer some details about the change here: https://masto.host/new-2020-plans-for-masto-host/ but do contact me if you have any questions.
Today OVH disabled Keystone (OpenStack Identity Service) API v2.0 and requires all endpoints to now use v3.
As the OVH instructions to access Swift via CyberDuck with Keystone v3 were incorrect, I have made a post with the correct settings: https://www.hugogameiro.com/cyberduck-with-ovh-swift-v3/
Also, made one for Transmit: https://www.hugogameiro.com/transmit-with-ovh-openstack-swift-v3/
Currently in Mastodon development testing there is this new message being displayed when you load a remote profile.
This simple message is a welcome addition. I had to explain this so many times to new people and even regular users don't know/remember (myself included, I keep forgetting this) that remote profiles are rarely complete.
Where can I find you on Pixelfed?
Send me your links so I can follow you.

"Losing fans is the collateral damage that comes from engaging in music from an artistic perspective, rather than a commercial one. Making music specifically to please fans can be patronising and exploitative. Challenging music, by its very nature, alienates some fans whilst inspiring others, but without that dissonance, there is no conversation, there is no risk, there are no tears and there are no smiles, and nobody is moved and nobody is affected!" - https://www.theredhandfiles.com/fear-losing-old-fans/
I rarely wake up during the night but last night I did and had a couple of emails about a couple of Mastodon instances having trouble federating.
This was at 5am and after 14 hours (it's now 7pm) I found a solution to the problem, just removing 2 's' from the Mastodon code: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/12812
Today the weather in Portugal is stormy.
In Portuguese, we have an expression that I would translate as "The devil is on the loose", I think we are not the only country as Bjork's song "It's Oh So Quiet" also mentions "devil is cut loose", probably the same just a different translation.
All this to say that today feels like this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSaNXpD49Qw
