They're killing off the C2* range. mastodon.ie is currently on a C2M instance. 17.99 a month. 16GB of RAM and 8 cores...

Beginning to wonder if I might be better off financially to just go with a new Scaleway instance type (this whole migration faff is happening because they're removing the type that currently hosts mastodon.ie) instead of going to the hosted route with masto.host.

Here's the disk usage before I started, after running the first command and after running the second command:
```
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/nbd1 137G 62G 68G 48% /mnt/mastodon_data
/dev/nbd1 137G 38G 93G 29% /mnt/mastodon_data
/dev/nbd1 137G 35G 96G 27% /mnt/mastodon_data

I've added a couple of cronjobs to cleanup up more faff on mastodon.ie:
```
@daily cd /mnt/mastodon_data && find /mnt/mastodon_data/public/system/preview_cards -type f -atime +7 -delete
@daily cd /mnt/mastodon_data/public/system && find . -type d -empty -print0 | xargs -0 -n 1 rmdir
```

Here's a search engine that'll let you search the fediverse for toots/accounts that might interest you. DEFINITELY far better than us spamming the shit out of ourselves with relays.

I do love the sound of a rain storm beating the house as I go to sleep.

The new gate is looking well!

Got a nice shot of it early morning when I couldn't get back to sleep after being paged over the weekend.

All this could possibly do is split Biden's vote. Fuck away off.

These old Dalek toys actually had tiny record players inside them to make the Daleks talk. Unreal!

@mastohost @davey_cakes @conor You guys are the last to post on here - what do yiz think?

It'd take a lot of the overhead off my plate and I don't have as much time for side project as I did.

@mastohost Hey, my hosting provider is killing off the server type I use to host my mastodon instance and I'm interested in migrating to masto.host.

Is migration of a current instance to your service possible?

Thanks!

I'm so desperate for live sport that I'm watching the football. Boke.

20 years after saying I would, I finally sat down and learned the opening riff of Days Of The Phoenix.

"I used to think politics was like driving: to go backward, put it in R, and to go forward, put it in D. I still think politics is like driving, but now it's like NASCAR: if we don't keep turning left we're all going to die spectacularly."
