Rebuilding feeds on a new Redis cache works a lot better when the Redis is actually running. Just a pro tip. From me to you.

Local grocery store was usually out of blue Sun Chips every time I would go grocery shopping after work. Only explanation I can think of is some kind of fiend cleaning them out every day before I could get there.

They were fully stocked on Friday, so I guess maybe RIP to the Sun Chips Fiend.

There’s an edible cookie dough restaurant near here? I don’t know what their tag line is, but it might as well be “Come on in, you already hate yourself anyways.”

I know I should just sign up on some other diaspora/hubzilla/friendica instance, but I also have just enough technical ability to make the mistake of running my own. I guess I'll see which wins out.

Baby's first Mastodon upgrade was a success. It also barely counts since I'm a docker-compose heathen.

Is This Content Warning a Shitpost: the tooter's gamble

Mastodon turns out to be relatively easy to get online and running without learning too much about the internals.

Planning a server migration really gets you digging into the sources. Decidedly fewer guides on that.

Building the second server to delete the first is going to be a situation. Not sure how much of a mix of ansible, jenkins, docker swarm, or whatever else that will be.

The mix of documentation between running Mastodon from source vs. from docker container is confusing. Probably I should be trying to use "docker-compose run --rm" more often.

Well, assuming "no federation" counts as "there".

Trying to save console outputs when I remember to. This would be a beast to recreate so far. Getting all the way to "fully automated" is going to be a sight from here.

Whoooo boy... installing ruby for rbenv.... missed that in the beginning and now it is taking forever on this ec2 instance.

The battle continues. Fought my way through all of the rake tasks and got the instance all the way up.
