It's fun to watch the language shift as the Earth turns and different time zones wake up and go to bed.

hi all! i have a thing to share with you! my new instance is ready and it is a little different...

toots on this instance are ephemeral; they disappear after a while (between 5 minutes and an hour) depending on the current phase of the moon.

something glitchy, something witchy...

feel free to boost

alright, here’s what I’ve gathered

apparently was hosted on a small server in the admin’s bedroom

a sponsor has offered to host it on a cloud server (idk what the difference with a regular server is)

the migration of data is proving quite difficult so it’s down in the meantime

gargron and the admin are in contact with one another so it should be fine soon enough

Also, the instance did eventually come back up, but it looks like the old users/statuses haven't been restored.

#MastoDev Streaming API woes 

Have any found a Mastodon library in any language that implements a API client?

Woot, Mastodon just hit 200k users! 😱 It was 160k yesterday and 150k the day before that.

Feature request: a custom per-instance "primary color" that can be easily set through the admin area.

This would change the colors in the main web UI and make it easier to distinguish between instances.

Just realized I never did a proper #introduction … 😅

Hi, I'm Nolan Lawson, I'm a PM on Microsoft Edge where I mostly focus on browser and website performance. I also do a lot of open-source JavaScript projects, including PouchDB, a database.

In my spare time I enjoy watching e-sports (Super Smash Bros Melee) and I also play some guitar. Maybe when I work up the courage I'll post some of the goofy covers @dragonluvr89 and I have done (she has a great voice!).

Very happy to be on Mastodon! 😁

Made my own instance:! I mainly created it to host my bots/experiments, but if anyone is still looking for an instance to call home, I'm glad to invite others.

Any using S3 for storage know the answers to these questions? Searched the docs already and couldn't find answers.

Does the S3 bucket need to be set to serve a static website?

Should S3_REGION be in the format us-east-1 or s3-website-east-1 or website-east-1?

Should S3_HOSTNAME be the local IP with some port or should it be the hostname of the S3 bucket static website?

, what ports need to be open on the server for an ? (cc @nolan)

When you're on the federated timeline on the hour and all the bots scheduled as cron jobs flood the timeline with updates.

@nolan Hey Nolan! Is there a tag or anything for instance admins?

This is the kind of book programmers at read.
