fediverse crawler 

Requesting a whole bunch of posts (user-agent is already in my bad bots list, so it's just getting HTTP 503 responses):

#mastoadmin

Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.

something went amiss with the cert renewal but its back now F

#mastoadmin how many sidekiq jobs failing a day is "normal"

for some reason i have yet to discern my backup script doesnt always clean up after itself!! but i'll sort that out at some point

oops ran out of disk space for a sec!!! got it now

mild admin PSA 

#mastoadmin: here's a useragent string regex to block crawlers from a bunch of extremely scummy-looking SEO companies

/(Ahrefs|AwarioSmart|Semrush|Summaly|Nimbostratus-)Bot|GarlikCrawler|ltx71|webmeup|Barkrowler|LightspeedSystems|linkfluence/

Some of them have evidently been crawling posts from other people's masto profile pages because they keep hitting the same handful of mine with regularity. Consider burning these leeches off for your users' sake

going to spend some time this week getting us on to the latest version of mastodon, 3.3.0 <3

This might be my favourite thing I painted this year c:

good cw etiquette 101:

-content warnings can totally be used to shorten/title posts! they don’t have to be for sensitive content

-plz use CWs for posts with possible triggers like alcohol, food, self harm, mental health, drug use, etc- we also cw for eye contact in photos here (ec)

-plz cw your lewd/nsfw content! there are kiddos here as well as sex repulsed folks

-cw stuff that can fuck with screenreaders like large blocks of repeating words or emoji spam

thx for makin fedi a safer place!

sorry, ran out of disk space for a sec x~x we're back now!

Hello I realized notifications were broken, big PEBKAC moment (problem exists between keyboard and chair). I have everything working again 😅

now i have another weird post-glitch-migration problem where not all notifications that should show up in the notifications column, are. that + streaming API not working right is making me stumped
