Got Elixir running in Kubernetes and connecting to the Postgres pod, next up I'll need to connect the nodes to each other, but I think that's enough for tonight

@aurynn That's so awesome to hear! I've been diving into lately and absolutely love it!

I'm definitely not at a stage where I'd be happy deploying anything more than hobby projects though β€” maybe once I get across StatefulSets and other magic πŸ˜…

How do you find Openstack Cloud?

@hugo Yep! I want it to be a full production service that remains reliable for people in an ongoing sense. I want it to be consistently available and sustainable.

I’m building it on top of the local Openstack cloud, using their k8s service and how I generally design production infra (I do DevOps at so I have Opinions), so it will be to that level of quality.

@aurynn Interested to know what you mean by specific way?

I'm assuming you're planning to run it like it's a production service that people rely on (which is great, imo!)?

so on the eve of the #tumblr shutdown, Tumblr IP-blocked the Internet Archive.

Just to be EXTRA dicks.

@aurynn That sounds feasible! Keen to see how you go with it πŸ‘€

Hey Mastodon fronds

I'm getting close to a technical implementation of the NZ Mastodon Project.

There'll be legal stuff to do after (CoC, ToS, insurance), but, it's getting to where it's feasible.



To do this, to make this work, I will have to charge money. Can we have a frank conversation about what's reasonable here, what's viable, what's even sensible?

My opening thoughts are NZD$10/mo.

What are yours?

@drzaiusx11 I’m running in band already, and using jest πŸ˜‚

Pretty sure it’s Nock that’s breaking on me

Ah yes, the classic "tests pass in isolation, but fail when run in the suite"


Facebook has a team of 50 people working on cryptocurrency in Messenger.

This is not a joke.

The more Mastodon servers there, are, the better. The more spread out people are across them, the more the network is resilient to various failure modes.

The basic premise of Mastodon is that you follow your friends from different servers! So go forth, and explore the fediverse ☺️

@amycii there is a search function, but I believe it only searches across instances you're federated with, not the whole fediverse

The great thing about working from home is that I can use my clickiest mechanical keyboard
