I'm gonna restart the instance later today, the host needs some urgent updates and I'm adjusting some settings on the storage box.


You know when you can't hear your speakers, and you keep turning various volume controls up higher and higher in confusion, and then someone hits the mute button and there's a deafening blast of sound? That's basically what happened at Chernobyl.

outstanding issue are fixed; the build took 4 hours though and I have no idea why...

mastodon 2.9.0 installed on pony.social, the version field still says 2.9.0 due to a bug in the CI pipeline, gonna push that update later today.

You can switch on single column mode by going into settings and disabling "advanced interface".

looks like the build times out after 1 hour, gonna have to do an overnight build with more timeout...

mastodon v2.9.0 is building in my pipeline, I'll deploy it asap once it's done (or tomorrow if it's not done when I'll be asleep)

data migration is now complete, the server should become a lot more responsive now that rsync isn't sucking up all the IO


Bitcoin does 22 Megatons of CO2 every year. That puts it at Rang 82/83 on the list of countries with most CO2 output. Just above Joardan.

@DjBRINE1 Being in another country isn't really an issue, the bigger work, on my side, will be to properly seperate things and make permissions. Atm everything is kinda lying around open since i'm the only one who needs access, so going root/admin everywhere is basically modus operandi.

And also building trust. Handing another person to keys to your kingdom is hard, for everyone, including me. Managing a server is a big responsibility with a lot of potential to do bad things to other people, I'm not saying you'd do it, but it requires some trust in the other person, personal trust, and that takes time.

@DjBRINE1 I would definitely recommend good knowledge of running a linux server. Mastodon is a fairly wide stack; so lots of services running together.

Database Administration is a must too, since you need to backup and maintain the mastodon database.

Since you can run Mastodon on Docker (and pony.social runs on docker now), it helps to know how Docker works, how Docker Swarm works and how to setup Stacks in Docker.
