pony.social downtime post-mortem
Around 0:46 today, the VM I run pony.social on ran out of assigned disk space. Free disk space was not monitored but the status system caught it. All sysadmin (me) were asleep at the time, so nobody got around to fix it until 5:27.
Total downtime is almost 5 hours and I apologize for the inconvenience, I'm going to use the weekend to move around some infrastructure so this won't happen again. Mainly by moving mastodon to docker (finally) and setting up monitoring on the storage servers and docker nodes.
ship of the month: crowley and aziraphale
Remember that Gab is a sinking ship and they're basically grabbing onto Mastodon like a parasite in a desperate attempt to get attention from the "drama" of doing so.
Torba has no self-awareness to see how pathetic it looks that his master race ass is incompetent at making a working website so he has to resort to using software made by a Jew instead.
App devs will block their domains, server admins will block their domains, and that'll be the end of that.
So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

If you find yourself sitting in cars now and then, this might be interesting to you and help you prevent accidents.
So if you open a cars door from the inside, you open the door with the hand that's not next to the door. This means that you turn around you body which automatically turns your vision in the direction where other cars or bikes might come from.
I was taught this early on I believe, anyways this is the way I have always done it.
