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 dragon.style/@anthracite/99434

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

Dragon Style looks like it just fell over or something?

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.

@electricplatypus @CeruleanK @green Yep. Not gonna tell you what name to go digging through the Wayback Machine looking for, I’ve changed a lot since those days too.

It just always makes me snicker.

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

*twiddles her thumbs while dragon.style rebuilds itself*

let's hope this (a) doesn't trash my database (I think I have a backup) and (b) actually works to let me put my first little test changes in (7777-char toots, custom style)

guess I'll just sit here and rock out to the Polybius soundtrack for a while/

@Latkes it’s also probably worth seeing how Fidonet/WWIVnet/other BBS networks handled the problems of funding and banning bad actors, there’s probably *something* to learn from their successes and failures before the Internet ate their lunch.



realistically one thing I'm betting is that as membership grows, more and more instances decide they have enough members and close registrations, more instances pop up. There's no need to worry about anyone trying to moderate All Mastodon like Twitter has.

(Admins may need to share IP/instance blocks eventually? Automate this, think about who to trust to make block choices for your instance like that?)
