Day 500

My colleagues still haven't realized that I actually never bring my work laptop home, instead I cloned the whole bloody thing into a VM that i run QEMU

Taking mastodon for iOS for a spin, it feels pretty polished for a beta!

I edited my blog with GitHub codespaces, and wrote about it:


Apologies if I havenโ€™t followed you on my alt account, Iโ€™ve kept things organic rather than importing follows

@uoya is my alt FYI

I wrote about some the changes Iโ€™ve recently made to my blog, and why:


It's not about who's got the most bullets.
It's about who controls the information.
It's all about the information!

What Matrix channels are people hanging out in? Please send your favourites.

Iโ€™m looking for discussion on tech, anime, devops, and just hanging out

That wasnโ€™t too bad, although I might look at deploying LDAP if itโ€™s simple enough, not that I have many usersโ€ฆ

Unsurprisingly, the less I use Pleroma, the lower the cache hit rate goes. Itโ€™s on 26.84% right now, down from 31.47%..

Maybe I should invite some friends to Pleroma? The issue is people donโ€™t seem to be as interested in federate social feeds as I am :thinking:

Anyone reading any good book at the moment?

Iโ€™m reading Consider, Phlebas by Iain M. Banks, part of the culture series. Itโ€™s a great sci-fi/space opera, Iโ€™m thoroughly engrossed.

Just a friendly reminder that doing formatting using unicode characters like ๐‘ฒ sucks total ass for screenreaders

@hugh you were totally right, I ended up patching a bug in Pleroma where migrations wouldn't run in the Elixir/OTP release if the database uses an SSL connection

software license (AGPLv3) question 

@schlink Is using resources from the project the equivalent of using the project itself?

@hugh definitely. I find my creativity/passion for this kind of stuff is a total roller coaster. I'll go for months not doing anything, then I'll get excited by something and burn myself out in the process ๐Ÿ˜‚

@hugh now I'm wondering if I should spend the rest of the day tinkering with Grafana and Prometheus, or just call it a day and not get burned out

Iโ€™m not sure I can be bothered trying to get Pleroma OTP releases supporting SSL DB connections this weekend, Iโ€™ll just get burned out ๐Ÿ˜ญ

@hugh took me all of 5 minutes to work it out and fix it this morning
