Utterly fucking awful. As season 8 progressed they became less and less interested in any sort of plot progression and jumped straight to the "end". Literally the worst TV I've ever watched. So, so disappointing.
This is a quick reminder that your are invited to #Funkwhale's first general assembly this sunday!
It's open to anyone, will takes place on a text chat, and we'll vote on several important topics as described in the forum topic.
Being templebar-adjacent for much of my adult life has led me to hate this song, but Lankum fucking nailed it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKvzalEdywk
Listening to this in work, I miss an old mate who is a massive Greenday fan. Quality tunes.
Right. Backups of toot artefacts (/var/www/mastodon/public/) were still massive after disabling the relays. I'm going to skip them for now and only take nightly DB backups - mostly just user account and instance config.
Since they shouldn't impact on DB backup sizes, I'm going to re-enable the federation relays.
Further interruption was caused by backups filling storage on mastodon.ie. They've grown by about 300% since I added the relays.
As a temporary fix I've dropped backup retention to 2 days from 7. That should be more than enough, as I'm transferring them to remote storage nightly.
I missed this outtage as I was mostly offline over the last few days. Need to get monitoring in place sooner rather than later.
Ok, mastodon.ie is now updated to version 2.8.0 - https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
I've also added a few Federation Relays.
They essentially share any public toots between all subscribed mastodon instances. They were released in 2.5 and more info on them is available here: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/09/mastodon-2.5-released/
I'll be upgrading mastodon.ie to 2.8.0 in the coming days.
Here's what you can look forward to: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
Any time I came up to Dublin for a gig, I'd head down to Rhythm Records on the quays to pick up a bootleg of the previous night's gig. Loved them!
