Pinned post is up and running if any wants to clone or take their CBDQ babies off Twitter, or make a new Mastobot with no muss and no fuss. Also lmk if you're ok having your source linked as an example on the front page!

Made aware of a name collision issue for boys with the same username on different servers using the same posting frequency. Aiming for a resolution this weekend.

Going to be pushing potentially platform-breaking changes to , replacing svg2png with headless Chromium. Sorry not sorry in advance.

realized I would normally do this with a live image and since this is a VPS I don't know how I would so we're just creating a swapfile and hoping for the best. No downtime, hoping it still helps but will monitor the situation.

Update/warning: realized I forgot to create a swap partition on the server, which likely contributes to SQL falling over in recent weeks as its mmaps have been failing. May be some downtime while I correct this, but it should give improved stability going forward.

Apologies to all users for extended outage past couple days. mysql service fell over and I didn't notice. Many thanks to @serindelaunay for letting me know. Resolved for now, will investigate root cause for later.

I actually got out of bed more than 5 minutes before I have to start work, for once (because Amanda made me) so I'm gonna go get one of those "bagel" things I've heard so much about.

joke's on me: it doesn't work in their interactive sandbox, but it DOES work in an actual API call. Still not great, but at least it's not A Disaster.

This simply does not work and I love it when documentation exists that lies to you. It's my favorite thing.

Put in two apartment applications. One more showing Monday evening. Soon I will be out of hell, I hope.

Going to see a place in like 30 min I want to get, but have to be a "stronger candidate" than an existing applicant. Should've worn a suit jacket like yesterday's viewings.

What if the first apartment I looked at is the best one I'll see. Ah, my opposite-of-fear-of-commitment strikes again.

Ring of Elysium [Tencent's free-to-play Battle Royale Game] 

interesting spot between PUBG/CoD:Blackout. Never as heavy as PUBG, or kinetic as CoD. Zone is very real+sudden constriction, but end of round heli evac distances it from what a "chicken eating game" victory IS. Heavy bias toward aggressor; QoL around equip/attach is good; strong upper limit on round length; mobility options cool in theory but only gliding feels good; shooting guns feels like throwing knives; visual glitches are ruinous.

Next big CBTS issue is to finish replacing PhantomJS with Puppeteer. After that it's Pleroma support. After that it's digging into regex hell deep in Tracery's guts.

Alright - this seems to be working now! Please let me know if you're experiencing any issues!

Going to try rolling out current dev branch with support for visibility flag (account default and per-post override) in an hour or so; hopefully this won't Break Everything
