@futzle This is really setting off my privacy violaction spider senses.

:redpanda2: :oh_no_bubble: FYI: If you're running Firefox and notice the random font colours are broken all over the web.

Smash the update button under Extensions, and it will update the Firefox container plugin that caused the problem.

Hattip to @augustine for the fix

:annoyingdog: Expect more small (1-15 minute) outages during the night over the next few days.. Once I've finished fixing my performance issues. Everything should be stable for a while.

I plan on not touching the server for a few months once these changes are complete.

*Sings in Robot* Hit me with your best thing. Why dont you hit me with your best thing. Fire away

Good morning.
I've migrated the server from Ubuntu LTS 18.04 to 22.04.

This will require me to rerun a bunch of performance commands, so the instance might seem 5% slower.

+ I'll add my little tweaks back in as well.

This will be fixed tonight.

:duck2: Server is going down soon for maintenance. It'll be about an hour or so.

Lots of spam happening recently. :oh_no_bubble:

Thanks for the reports.

:goose_honk: I'm doing more maintenance on the server tonight.

No jokes on this update because it's going to actually break the instance seriously for a few hours. :skellyduck:

If you notice broken images, that's expected because I'm moving from AWS S3 to another CDN provider. Once the file is copied, it'll come back!

:goose_honk: I'm doing some maintenance on the server tonight.

"I thought maybe I should tell you the system will be compiling for 18 to 20 minutes, so some of the minor systems, they might go on and off for a while, but it's nothing to worry about."

@thatonecalculator hey hey.. can you share information about the plush? like I imagine those things cost thousands to get prototyped?

What should we name our new megafauna mascot friend?

So far..... Dippy, Doug/Dougie, Skwodge.

:partyparrot: Tweaked the code to cause DMs to be highlighted in a different colour.

:rollbear: Hey Sorry about the small outages over the last hour.

* Upgraded Postgres to 14.4 (fixes index corruption issues)
* Added the little mascot friend back onto the single feed view.
* Added a few security patches

We're going to start replacing the little mascot character every now and then. So keep an eye out for the next Mascot.

If you have any problems at all, give me a buzz.

:duck2: Who was interested in Pixelfed (The Federated Instagram clone) again? pixelfed.au is in preview.

If you want to test it for me (I'll likely nuke the instance once after testing) :taylorboom:

DM me with you username/email for an account in the test environment, and go bug hunting with me. :ablobcattrash:

:awesome: I've fixed the Linode DNS issue by using another DNS provider... take that Linode

I've also upgraded aus.social to the recently (5 hours ago) updated version of Mastodon... So we're now on v3.5.3 that includes a bunch of security and performance fixes!

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/r

Have a nice day, everything else should be back to normal :BlobHajMlem:

:goose_honk: Something is broken on the internet.

The Linode DNS seems to be having problems, which might cause a problem uploading images!.... I've started to investigate if there is something I can do.

:goose_honk: :sickos2: NOTICE:

I'm doing some maintenance on the server tonight... later tonight (around midnight), you might notice media is broken, but that should fix itself sooner than later a few hours later :vibing:
