Hello friends on the Australia Fediverse. We're got a new friendly instance with melb.social. Am I missing any?

eigenmagic.net/ - @daedalus

social.chinwag.org/ - @mike

mstdn.com.au - run by @hynx

bne.social/ - run by @ashkyd

melb.social/about - run by @hugo

ausglam.space - run by @hugh

aus.social - run by me / @shlee

mel.social - DED

P.S. can the admins please join my relay so all toots are shared around.

@shlee I’m also giggling that state, city and national instances need

Federation

Basically spent the night writing a patch that would bring switter.at up to Mastodon 2.6.1

Hey hey, we're running on 2.6.1.. had a few seconds of outage to fix the regression with the 2.6.0 release.

Everything should be groovy now. :Koala:

🎉 #Mastodon 2.6.0 is out! 🎉

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

- Link ownership verification
- Redesigned forms
- Revamped DMs column
- In-stream link previews
- More tootctl utilities for admins
- Improved admin UIs

And a load of bug fixes! 🐘

@mike @daedalus can you disable/enable my relay on your instance please.

Upgraded to 2.6.0-RC2.. sorry for the few seconds of outage.

Good news: You've got your DMs back :awesome:

@Gargron that's one of the great thing about the federated tab. Even if your home and local are quiet there's bound to be action on the fediverse. Mastodon is a pretty cool platform. Hang around a bit and you'll work it out.

Sorry about that. Restarted the nginx caused a few seconds of outage.

I've now domain-blocked albin.social on ausglam.space at 'silence' level with images blocked. Albin users will be shouting into the void and won't see or be able to data-mine your toots.

Completed for now..
The Redis work didn't get completed... docker problems :yeti:

but I've migrated to the t3 instance type, so you should experience a faster experience.

50% completed for tonights major work :awesome:

Most of the work so far has been backups :blobcatrainbow:
