every morning this guy fucks with me while I'm trying to sleep

interestingly it works ok if you make a request with only_media=true but not when only_media=false

everything but local timeline view seems to be working ok... going to keep digging as I have time

this instance is currently having some issues, will dig in and see what's up soon. Seems like it may just be nonstop ruby errors coming from interoperability problems? Will try to update to latest stable mastodon in the next day or two.

My apologies for the service degredation!

I ought to have written something more long form about mastodon's ten year overnight success that hasn't quite taken hold yet. Seems like we'll hit critical mass for network effects to cause higher endogenous growth, rather than something exogenous like twitter increasing ban frequency.

Then again, I could be seriously underestimating the draw of celebrity accounts. I'd imagine celeb accounts bring in a less engaged user on average, so maybe this balances out from a network health perspective?

Generally I'm not one to shill but I just wanted to give another nod to sweetwater.com for being so damn good. If you need to buy pro audio stuff in America I can't recommend them enough. Amazing service, great prices (call and ask for a discount too), super prompt and knowledgable.

Can't wait for these Yamaha HS8s to get here!!

@jessmahler Curious what kind of data you're checking out to say that the "non-coders have left mastodon". I'd love to take a look at the details!

just want to say that all beings with agency are welcome to make accounts here as long as they spend $5

ok just rolled our creds.

any other instance admins feel free to reach out to me if you're having issues with the key change process!

we're on 2.4.0rc3 now, you will need to log in again later when I roll these keys

mastodon having its usual code quality issues, we leaked tons of secret env vars in some random javascript file, no improper access from what I've seen in the centralized logs but defintely had these values accessed so rolling everything anyways

expanse season 3 tonight!

cool space opera if you're into that stuff

ok we're now on the latest mastodon version again, sorry for the delay in updating!

I can't stop thinking about the potential of something like peertube. Still need to think through the incentives of various actors more but it seems like some kind of peertube+crypto system could replace youtube at scale and potentially provide more revenue to creaters than today, and without ads to boot.


Lots of work starting to come together finally! If you have any interest in learning about Continuous Deployment or Kubernetes check out the early access for my upcoming book here: withku.be

All feedback, questions, comments, are greatly appreciated -nj


#FreeRadical blog: "S3 URLs have changed; update your Content-Security-Policy"

I’m serving Free Radical’s images etc. from S3. When I updated to Mastodon v2.1.0, I noticed that all the page’s images were missing. Safari’s Show JavaScript Console menu revealed a lot of errors like: [Error] Refused to load s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/fre- [...]

working on some art asset generation stuff, very much work in progress but even after 1 training session it's looking pretty dope to me!
