Real top level domains that are still available

@bea i have a hypothesis about why spanner can't sub to anything at there are two IPv6 addys in your DNS (alongside the two IPv4s), but's web server is not listening on either of them. my instance runs on IPv4 and IPv6.

i'm fairly new to IPv6 land, so it might be that it's up to me to set up some kind of fallback, but maybe listening on your IPv6 addys is worth trying if you're willing. (it's just an extra listen [::]:<port> in each server stanza)

can any #instanceadmins out there offer advice on how to handle a) stuck/unconfirmed subs in the PubSubHubbub view and b) cases where it's impossible to subscribe to a particular user from one instance (while easy as pie from another)?

pretty damn sure 2) does not involve having been blocked, because i talked with the instance admin of the "problem" instance.

@bea did you have to do any magic to get d74ae873 working?

@bea crap, i followed you from the wrong account. expect a follow from instead, sorry for the noise!

a recent !qvitter commit broke the remote follow button. update to latest to fix it.

first attempts to run a Mastodon instance met with initial seeming success and then a bevy of unexplained errors upon following remote accounts.

i will try again another day --

instance admins: where the heck are the logs?!

today is an Ella Fitzgerald "artist on shuffle" kind of day.
