oops my masto was offline for a day because it ran out of disk space πŸ™ƒ I'm too cheap to buy more right now so it may happen again, but I'll eventually fix it when I have time and can justify spending. I'm already aggressively deleting remote media every day. This stability isn't a high priority for me but it's definitely not going to disappear entirely! I like the fediverse and self-hosting too much for that to happen πŸ™‚

I keep fixing my tootctl cronjob for removing remote media and it's somehow broken AGAIN. Ugh. Why does this simple task keep breaking? 😠

I've helped other Mastodon admins fix broken cronjobs too, so I know it's a common issue. The Mastodon project needs more people to help with communication because it's frustrating to keep track compared to some other open source projects. The official docs seem deliberately sparse. Maybe I should make my own posts about troubleshooting?

I haven’t changed my bio since v2.5.0 because for some reason I discarded my changes to the profile edit page (changes needed to increase the character limit). I just fixed it again by editing two files (one model and one view). Hopefully I don’t find a reason to discard my edits this time o.o

Thinking of moving my to a subdomain. Can I keep my handle at tassaron.com and still have a tiny homepage at tassaron.com? As long as I don’t have anything else on tassaron.com this won’t confuse Mastodon somehow, right? (I ask because the doc says not to have both URLs functioning but I assume it only means URLs that resemble a Mastodon query...) When I decide to do this I will be septuple-checking everything and expecting problems 🀨... Although it sounds simple

Glad we have this new shiny /explore section on Mastodon so I can explore myself! Very interesting. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

I have updated from Mastodon 2.6.0 to 2.7.2 with no issues \o/

cron stopped deleting my instance's remote media cache at some point because we're apparently supposed to use tootctl now? but the documentation hasn't been updated so I deduced this information from a pull request x_x

Almost connected to 1000 instances now, and my storage use has seemingly reached equilibrium! :tassmuffin: (with a cron job removing remote media when it's >72h old)

My instance is now barely using <1gb of ram by using jemalloc. And the ram usage is constant instead of slowly increasing like before...

I'm connected to about 500 instances now, although only 1-2 accounts from half of them. So far the relays are a boon! πŸŽ‰ My storage isn't increasing too fast and federated timeline is moving at the perfect speed.
