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 :)

Queues are back to zero.. everything back to normal.

This attack broke my terms of service....

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. :psyduck:

@mike I just got a bunch of spambots :( how is your server looking?

Upgraded:
* Aus.Social to v.2.8.3
* fakebird.aus.party to 2.3.2

also.. looks like there is a queue of jobs to complete before I catch up... so things might be slow for a while

So like Jurassic park. "So, some minor systems may go on and off for a while. There's nothing to worry about. Simple thing.... "

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.

Updated aus.social to V2.8.1... The fancy Blurhash images are now supported :) Show more

fakebird.aus.party/ is mastodons feed with a birdsite feel. It's not for everybody, but we're all about options :)

Try it out now! How do you feel about this?

@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.

I've picked up aus.party to host more services for our community. pixelfed.aus.party and peertube.aus.party will be coming soon for starters.

Server has been restarted. Sorry about the delay - I was flying to Bangkok when the server died...
