just fyi, i moved my main over to @wolfteeth@mellified.men, which is the best place to find me for now. at least at times when i am not utterly failing at the job of running an instance, haha. i like .social but i kinda prefer a smaller community! just personally.

it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich girl to go too far because you know it doesn't matter anyway

still pulling the database backup. may still be a while, the little VPS is chugging along.

after that we will need to import it into the updated database, and then perform the actual upgrade (which will be short and sweet). thanks for being patient

mellified is down right now as we do all of the database version migration for the mastodon v3.5 upgrade.

🐝 mellified.men is back 

by all appearances, WE ARE BACK!!! with new and improved (??? well, cheaper anyway) media storage on digitalocean spaces

i still have a background job working on permissions for custom emoji, so those may not show up for a bit. other media should be working. please tell me if it isn't. here is a picture, just to prove it to you

still processing the permissions fix. again, a lot of media in there. sorry again for being down for so much longer than anticipated. i guess we were due for it, since things had been going pretty smoothly for a while. this is just a whole lot of waiting but hopefully when it finishes, we'll be able to come right back up. sidekiq man will have some hard work to catch up

morning update. it looks like the ACL setting job didn't get everything, so i'm rerunning. keeping an eye on it

ran into a weird issue with all our media transferring with the wrong ACL (oops). running a job to fix it now. i think i'm going to have to leave this overnight to finish. sorry folks. will get things up and running again tomorrow morning!

we are about halfway through the media transfer

okay! i'm in the process of doing the media synchronization. i did an initial sync a day or so ago, so it should only need to transfer new stuff, but it's still chugging along pretty slowly. this will definitely take a while

i set up an instance - dunno how well it'll scale even for small numbers of users but! i'm over at @wolfteeth@mellified.men

i spent my evening making a simple static html page for the first time in years and it is in fact profoundly satisfying
