my tumblr backup efforts are completed: 866'000 posts.

I'll do daily reruns until the 17th, then I'll sort all the data for my own safety.

If someone had problems accessing the server the last days: It's fixed.

I made a mistake configuring HAProxy and made the referrer policy way to paranoid.

Server rebooted, it probably solved some other networking issues I had too, plus a lot of needed updates installed 👍

I'm going to reboot this instance for a moment, there is important updates that need to be applied and maybe it fixes some potential networking problems...

"The Program has stopped functioning, we're looking for a solution"

Okay, like, I did what I wanted?

Idea of the day:

Create a Neural thingy and feed it all of Fimfiction, then have it produce a 400k words story and post it on Fimfiction.

After someone pulled 40GB in a few minutes from my server overnight I put in a request limiter on HAProxy.

The exact limits will not be specified but I've sized them so the server should be able to reject people running non-limited crawlers or similar.

I ordered 350F supercaps.

Imagine if MS switches Edge to Chromium and then EEE's Google out of the Web.

My tumblr backup now contains 293'086 posts (I've made a tool to count) for over 551 blogs.

It contains 308121 images (518148 total). Some blogs still don't have a full count so that number will go up.

About 130GB of data or so.

I expect I'll be done by the 17th.

All of this amounts ot 38GB and 250'000 files on my disk btw. I could backup 100 as many tumblr blogs but sadly time is limited.

My Tumblr Archive now contains 170'000 blog entries, roughly. Give or take a few ten thousand (it's getting difficult to obtain accurate numbers).

I've worked through roughly 50% of my queue.

By my current accounting I have already 60'000 tumblr posts backed up. Once the current batch is done I'm gonna check back on derpi, they have a spreadsheet with more...

@cult they never said anything about "bartering" with user data...

"We would never sell the user's data"

No, Facebook, you just exchanged it for more user data and ad placements, but thank you.
