@maiki @kaniini @awilfox some thoughts about this IRC server? Heard about this in the latest show

oragono/oragono

oragono - A modern IRC server written in Go.

github.com/oragono/oragono/blo

block storage at FRA1 is up&running now after 36hrs of horror. Hope noones died from heart attack...

DigitalOcean FRA1 servers are down for 30 hours. Thirty!!! And they claim 99,99% SLA. I've thought they are the big player.

Lesson for today: ALWAYS have backups on YOUR disks. Physical magnets in your closet = safe sleep.

Which makes me even more angry since DO doesn't offer offsite backup solution. Instead you can take snapshots which they stored on their servers - seemed fair to me... till today.

I bought DigitalOcean droplet for the sole purpose of having reliable server that some big brother takes care of. It seemed a fair trade off - you pay so other will take care of power outages, DDos and disk failures... and then THIS has happened... WELVE hrs of downtime and still no real explanation and no data retrieved... if it were a server at home, I'd have alreadedy have my disks swapped with backups in place. Makes me rethink of a backup solution.

Yeah, is a good opportunity to get more users to alternative social media

@Gargron Cambridge Analitica scandal is the best opportunity to agitate for mastodon :)!
