Alrighty. This looks like it's working correctlyish, so I'll be absconding over to the me at hasameli.

....OK, finding a bug here, apparently. You'll want @ munin @ mastodon.hasameli.com for the me on the instance that's mine.

HAH

My instance has come up by -itself-

Now to look into how to administer the benighted thing.

It would be funny AF if Twitter would die off because everyone moved to a platform named after an extinct animal. Irony +1.

FYI, the "swiftonsecurity" on Mastodon is not the real SwiftOnSecurity from Twitter.

Ok, if you run mastodon with any username -other- than 'mastadon' then your psql db user has to have -THAT- username in it.

This is obvious in retrospect but apparently I've been burning caffeine like nothing else today.

I really needed another platform to find infosec papers I will bookmark for later and never open

[Not counting the ruby gems or the...........]

Wait, what? 1055 more?

....42THOUSAND more?

What is this thing installing?

982 dependencies makes me -really- nervous, and I'm glad I'm segregating this thing to a separate server.

tl;dr: stop changing UI around to be cool. It messes people up and then they don't upgrade.

Whoever is trying to fax me from New Hampshire needs to stop.

First and foremost, I am NOT the person you're looking for.

Second, this is the 21st century. Yes, I realize that the medical profession is largely lodged in the 18th, but kindly get with the program.

And why I -still- remain on the CLI for a good chunk of my work, and I deeply, deeply resent the debian linux folks for changing to 'ss' from 'netstat' even though it's fewer characters - muscle memory works for words as well.

Or on Android, changing how to find the part of the UI that dictates the kind of action your phone takes when plugged into a USB source - whether charge only, or making a drive available, or what.

Or windows, and why people remain with XP even still - because they know how to find what they want to do on that interface.

This specifically applies to, for instance, the changes in UI on twitter and people's inability to figure out how to control the scope of their tweets' visibility.

Y'know, when I have a moment for my head NOT to be buried six layers deep in dependencies, I'm going to have to write up a nasty note about how changes in UI are a significant problem for infosec in that users are trained to perform actions-on-interface, rather than understanding what the dev's intent for those specific parts of the interface are; thus, changes cause behavioral problems.

No, *you're* running vi over ssh from bash launched via powershell inside VScode.

rstatus peaked at needing 6 app servers with just over 10,000 active users. rails didn't scale in 2010 and it doesn't now. :)
