Howdy Neighbours, I'm planning on growing the aus.social services...
so I've started a Patreon with 100% of the money going to support aus.social :)
"Aus.Social — Welcome to Thundertoot"
Hello friends, some naughty boy is attacking us.. I've deleted about 100 fake accounts, but the queue is full of fake accounts.
According to our graphs - I've blocked some of the bad servers and it might take about 3 hours to clear up all of the bad traffic on the Federation.
Boo... some messages might be delayed as they get stuck in the back of the queue.
@mike I just got a bunch of spambots :( how is your server looking?
Happy mothers day
Sorry for the downtime.
Root-cause: /var/log/syslog filled our disk up. I've increased the disk space and resolved my syslog problem to it shouldn't repeat.
Side Effects: The disk space issue also caused the CPU to spike which ate my CPU credits (classic AWS)... so I've moved to a new instance type temporarily at the cost of some bison bucks. The joy of being a sysadmin :)
Lessons learned: Monitoring didn't work since I've moved to Singapore and got a new number. I'll fix that tonight.
Upgraded to Mastodon v2.8.2
Updated aus.social to V2.8.1... The fancy Blurhash images are now supported :) Show more

@halcyon Hello friends, I'm looking to launch a Halcyon.
I was looking to use docker-compose, and I might be able to PR you that side.. Could you consider refactoring the docker side? The nginx reverse proxy stuff looks messy.
our official announcement is up! https://keybase.io/blog/keybase-proofs-for-mastodon-and-everyone
Upgraded to v2.8.0
We're hooked into the keybase.io proof system too :)
