I'm about to push an update that apparently will massively change the way Mastodon looks - but you'll be able to change it back if you don't like it :blobcatrainbow:

Updated: Feel free to turn on/off the advanced web interface and see how you feel!

@mastonaut yo, found a crash bug...
on a boosted toot
1) click one of the tiny images
2) click the other tiny image
3) click the original tiny image

In case anyone was wondering due to recent discourse, Toot! will be blocking any gab domains.

I do not support white supremacy and hatred, and will never support any server that promotes it.

Hello to our new Neighbours.
@hermitcl @DrParnassus @skroggitz @aboutthehouse @LightheartedDan @apixelshort :awesome:

All of these accounts were registered in about 5 minute windows... so :psyduck:

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?

* Aus.Social to v.2.8.3
* 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.
