Pinned toot

In my heart
I hear the voice of the desert

Its sandy winds, its burning sun, its cool dark nights



my bleached bones will lie there

and my soul will be happy.

Woo! I managed to free up enough space to get the mastodon:media:remove_remote task running. There sure is a lot of shit to delete, and I should probably look into making this happen on a much more regular basis. Like every other freakin' day.

I should still probably look into expanding my instance's storage, too. But keeping the cache of remote media from overflowing is NEVER gonna be a bad idea.

Butts! It ran out of space while I was trying to run the 'remove local cache of remote media' Rake task. Ffffff.

Okay I can definitely tell where the space is being used here... and I found some stuff lingering on the drive that I can delete to have enough room to rebuild docker-compose...

Awrite it looks like is definitely down due to 100% disc usage.

Any out there have experience with running Mastodon on Digital Ocean and migrating your data/media to one of their "block storage volumes"?

Extra fun level: I've got it living in a Docker container and disc space is low enough that docker-compose seems to have deleted itself, and can't rebuild itself.

Yeah that definitely looks down. Let's see what a quick reboot will do.

Dragon Style status: woke up with it down and out of disk space. Got it back up, hope I fixed it so that won't happen again. More details at

okay why did dragon style fall over while I was sitting out in Dana's back yard drawing

Woke up, got dressed, looked at dragon style. Down again! Feh.

> docker: Error response from daemon: no space left on device.

oh well I guess that would explain it huh, good thing Digital Ocean just announced new plans with more space for the same price. Resized it, bringing it back up. Sorry about the downtime, darlings. <3

An early holiday gift from @egypturnash - a giant-ass Amazon-breaking book, with a timely illustration in the back.

Hmm, Dragon Style isn't responding. Gonna give it a reboot and see what happens.

Hey dragon stylers, site's down for a bit longer - a small change that worked on my local dev instance didn't work on the live site.

Hey all you stylish dragons. We're going down for a bit so I can push some style tweaks I made.

As always, watch @egypturnash for further news if we're not back in aa few.

Hey all, I'm taking Dragon Style down for a little update - it's been pointed out that there's no length limit on a CW, so you could toot out a 7777-character-long CW if you wanted to.

I'm sure everyone here is far too polite and sensible to want to do such a thing, but nonetheless, very soon you won't be ABLE to do so even if by some inconceivable circumstance you WANTED to do such a thing.

As always: keep an eye on @egypturnash for updates if dragon style has been down for more than a few minutes. 💓

Admin stuff: going down for a few minutes. Show more

I need to get around to figuring out how to move my follow list from here to @anthracite so I don’t have two timelines to lose track of.

Dragon Style update: custom CSS, longer toots. Show more
