"Welcome to NYC, 2023"

New post with a set of pictures from our trip by train from Boston to Manhattan.

Our first contact with this amazing city in the trip we made back in September.


@aku Yeah I see the PR is approved so we might get it in the next release?

Well, well, well... Look that I got delivered :blobcataww:

๐Ÿ†• Manga review: Midori no Hibi - Volume 1

โญ โญ โญ

Got the nine volumes for this series from a friend for cheap, so I gave it a try. I think did watch the anime many years ago but never read the manga, nor had any interest.

Donโ€™t get me wrong, volume one was easy to read and fun but not something Iโ€™d invest money in having so many other good series in my to-purchase list.


Fun interview with Tom Caron.

"Name Redacted Podcast Episode 137"



@ljaesch That's awesome! Now I need to catch up with the manga (just started collecting it) and re-watch the anime ๐Ÿ˜‚

acquired โœ… ๐Ÿ’ธ

๐Ÿคฉ 3 volumes in Catalan and 3 volumes in Spanish.

What used to be a weekend of massive discounts has become a regular Friday...


โญ โญ โญ

A little disappointed with this episode. It started great, cool fight on both fronts. Then the flashback was cheaply drawn, in my opinion (was the manga drawn this way? no mouth? simple comical style?).

In the end, they did not even show or animate her face exploding. This begs the question, is she dead? If she is, would've liked a front view not a back with a splash. Maybe she isn't dead?

How will Itadori get out of this one?

@prex Have not read Pension Life (yet!). Will add it to my ever growing to-do ๐Ÿ˜‚

Indeed is no doubt shonen.

@michelle Nice! On one side I think "I'd love to try this" but then I know the pressure of completing would not make it enjoyable for me ๐Ÿ˜

@ayo "In progress" and get feedback ๐Ÿ™‚

@prex Is this the one?

I don't know why I was expecting something very different ๐Ÿ˜

I've been collecting the and maybe my mind tricked me.

In Spain there isn't Black Friday sales for books ๐Ÿ“š :blobcat_sadlife:

๐Ÿ’ฐ The book prices are regulated nation-wide and no discounts can be applied other than the maximum 5% (with the exception of an additional +5% on April 23rd) ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“–

Regardless... I bought some ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต as I have finished the volumes I had sitting unread ๐Ÿ˜‚

Will share a photo when delivered :ablobcatbongo:

@ayo Same here! I do remember the good old days, when they launched awesome products you got excited to use.

Now it's like... stay away from them and don't trust they'll keep this alive for a year.

@bamboombibbitybop Indeed a sad read. They have so much power to change people's lives for the better but it seems management chooses money over "don't do evil"

@kizu I did attempt the novel version last November and it was very rough.

It has been a while since I last said "wow" out loud upon finishing an anime episode

Story-wise that technique had Sukuna fight for real, such an overpowered character.

Wind Breaker volume 1 by Satoru Nii is read โœ…

I have mixed feelings. I like the drawing style, and the pace, so far the main character is very shonen, it has most of the ingredients to make it interesting.

At the end of the day Iโ€™m here for the fights, so I hope they donโ€™t dwell too much on being the neighborhood pacifists and start fist-fighting.

I will buy the next volume ๐Ÿ’ธ

With an 8.20 out of 10 on MyAnimeList Horimiya is a sweet slice-of-life / romance series about a group of friends in high-school.

Iโ€™ve binge-watched this anime in two days and enjoyed it quite a bit. It paints sweet romance stories that we all wished we had back in high school.


@aku @feyo It's safe for the current 4.2.1 version as long as you understand what are you deleting, customize the commands as needed.

@feyo @aku Yeah sadly it's not here

The docs don't get the love they deserve. I think I eventually found the source of the command.

@feyo Glad it worked!

โญ โญ โญ โญ โญ

What an episode, so many things to discuss!

Toji's fight was very well animated, the cursed spirit with the fire was too strong (when he was fighting Gojo, he was weak!), and Sukuna is absurdly strong...

Servamp volume 2 is done โœ…

It was a decent volume, I wanted a little bit more action to be honest and we didn't get it. The story moved forward but I missed some fights.
I can see why this manga isn't top-rated, if only they would have added a better fight scene.

Your thoughts?

@screw_dog I'm with you, I manage for now but not willing to eat ads for breakfast.

@CppGuy Interesting, what is this desktop. site? Like a wrapper for YouTube?

@chiasm For my consumption I feel I'd be paying to much.

But I can see how I would lose patience if I had to cast it on the TV where I can't skip ads.

@Flowermob That seems to, for now, be a workaround to the total block. But I'd imagine they'll eventually block not logged in users as well.

@bcharper Good stuff!

That's my setup as well :firefox: Firefox with the settings to the max ๐Ÿ˜€ a bunch of extensions and a pi-hole in the network.

I've also use DuckDuck Go and I'm with you on the email, I'm in too deep to change. I feel you, I almost never cast it to the TV because of the annoying ads. So far I've enjoyed it via :firefox: Firefox with several ad blockers, pi-hole, etc.

Episode 37, one of the best fights this season. Kudos to the animators from MAPPA ๐Ÿ’ฏ ๐Ÿ‘

I think the story went a little overboard with Itadori being so badly wounded, yet being able to fight until the last moment. Dissapointed we didn't see Sukuna until the end. I guess he'll switch with him now to heal him?

@eric Yeah I'm around 30Gb I want to backup.

I think rsync is the easiest, cheapest solution at the moment.

It's a shame there's no easy way to sudo into the remote server to download to local.

@nanode Might have to end up doing that, thank you!

@glenn Thanks, I'm looking at both commands. Not finding much info about directories that need sudo :blobcatthinking:

@nanode Thank you for the detailed post! I already have a cron for database backup, I'm looking for a single command line solution that can download all the stuff.

The only thing is rsync and rclone will work with directories that need sudo? :blobfoxthinkanime:

@jaytay Thanks, I might try rclone to local instead of to another cloud provider.

@aral Thank you for the tips, Aral! Will check out Syncthing ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Those who have to host your sites or whatnot.

What's your backup strategy?

Backup solutions from hosting providers are usually expensive.

Thinking about just rsync to a local SSD?

Was not a huge fan of the time jumps but I understand they are necessary for the story. I think it took a long time for the different stories to start converging. Similar to Game of Thrones.

@bernat @stefan this meeting could have been an emoji reaction.

Late to the party but I've finally managed to finish Season 1 of Foundation, as IMDB puts it the "complex saga of humans scattered on planets throughout the galaxy all living under the rule of the Galactic Empire."

It has been a roller coaster with some episodes being very boring episodes and others stunning.

I wanted to see more of The Empire, and enjoyed very much the previous episodes about the DNA alterations.

Have you watched it?

This volume was very good, such an improvement compared to the last one.

Weโ€™ve got so much fighting and lots of story development. At this point, we havenโ€™t been told how much has the present changed. Are we done? Is Hana safe? Uncertain.

I look forward to the next chapters.


@ayo Nooo, owning your instance is fantastic :blobcat_sadlife:

If you need more content, have you considered relays?

If it's too much, how about pulling just some hashtags (what I do)

Or simply have another account that follows a lot, and you follow that to populate your federated timeline.

Nowhere near the same quality. Not production but the story itself. It felt just too disconnected. Where Game Of Thrones all the plots with the different characters / stories connected somehow and it was fantastic.

@xolotlvt I'm in the same boat! Just read volume 4 and will continue to read ๐Ÿคฉ

It's sad that was not done by Kishimoto-sensei. Whenever I'm done with I'll consider it but so far I'm not convinced.

@yellowjitsch I hope they don't stretch it too long and we're moving on from this already on the next episode.

I found the second part of the episode incredibly boring. It was very fun until they encountered the gang with the ex-boss.

Not really excited about the next episode, and not looking forward to seeing how they escape from this. Will they "free" the rest of the enslaved? Will they escape by themselves? Don't really care. I want them to continue the road trip.

This volume was overall a little weak. I think the plot has thickened a lot with this โ€œback to square oneโ€ but we have not given many answers. It feels like we know nothing, at the start of volume 3.

Overall I feel the new characters Baji and Kazutora are not well developed. I liked the backstory with the killing of Mikeyโ€™s older brother but the hatred they feel for Mikey makes zero sense.

It feels like weโ€™re back to square one, though. Weโ€™re starting over with the same goal, to save them all probably (although I wouldnโ€™t mind not saving Akkun, what an arse).

@bartdorsey optional chaining indeed but not using:

@To Did I read right that the is about to end?

Can't find the source but heard they were wrapping up the series.

@moira You linked to my own blog post ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you for taking a look!

@fell Yeah, not sure either ๐Ÿคท

@moira Yeah I don't know where the videos come from, it seems limit is both image and video.

Is there a way to automatically reject video assets from remote servers?

From time to time ffmpeg will go crazy processing files and CPU/RAM will go through the roof for hours.


End of volume one! โœ… Very good overall even if this chapter was nothing outstanding.

The best part, however, was our boy Izuku being renamed as Deku all thanks to a pretty girl and a nice smile. He was sold on it so fast ๐Ÿคฃ


This is very nice! Look at this optional chaining proposal :javascript:

obj?.prop = value;

Which would be equivalent to:

if (obj) obj.prop = value;

@blackestclovers The whole licensing is a nightmare, to be honest. Even if you pay for Crunchyroll which it seems to have most of it... then you realize they remove some of the items from the catalog in your country because of these licensing issues.

I've seen the anime for most of them and feel they would be safe bets for manga.

I do some much thinking before committing to a series. I'm trying to be selective, to make sure I'll like them and not drop them. I also try to get the ones translated to Catalan first, then if none is to my liking fallback to Spanish translation.

@blackestclovers this one?

First time I hear about it. Is it good?

@Sfwmson Sure, it all can't be good.

My issue is the theme. All previous seasons, as far as I can remember, had technology as a theme. Not this one, hence my disappointment.

@ayo I would recommend you watching the first one, which has the most tech in it.

The rest, no tech involved.

Quite disappointed with this new season that just aired.

For me what made it great was the dystopian technology futures it presented. This is season is everything but that.

Only the first episode follows what I expected and wanted to see. The rest were simply not but a different show entirely. I don't understand. Just name it something else. Why use the franchise like that.

Your thoughts?

@blackestclovers I need them to move the story a little bit farther.

Aqua met with the producer and got some leads. Hopefully we'll see something happening soon.

I feel bad for Akane, being used by Aqua like that. She has real feelings...

@blackestclovers I thought maybe it was a little slow?

I think the problem was the first episode, it was too good, with great pace.

Episode 8 was great, though. This weeks (9th) wasn't too much for me.

@blackestclovers Nice purchase! ๐Ÿ˜

Action packed, the force, light sabers, tie fighters... What else can you possible want in this episode?

Loved the finale, just wished there was more.

I kept my faith until the last second to see if IG-11 would make real return (not what we got instead). Alas, no luck.


From my investigation there's no clean way to standup another instance in the same domain and don't break the internet. I guess it could be fine if you don't care about keeping followers and such (which I wanted to keep).

I'd love to read more if you end up going through with this.

@losttourist This same question is what I asked myself after installing Mastodon, running it for a couple of months and realizing I should have gone with for or a smaller backend. Mastodon is very nice but it's overkill for 1 user.

I was going to give it 2/5 but the small fight scene at the end bumped the score slightly.

Don't you think they took too much time with the backstory and the main plot explanation here? We already knew what the mission was about.

@ruud @mwadmin Thank you for contributing back to the project's maintenance! ๐Ÿ’œ

@mmeier Made the same mistake back in November, and as you I had to stick with it.

Don't want to change domain (easy change), don't want to lose content.

Now after all these months I have everything under control (disk space, hardware resources...), the server works fine, all is well. But would've liked a more lightweight backend for just 1 user.

@zuhair Using non-docker install here ๐Ÿ˜Ž but thank you for the heads up ๐Ÿ’œ

@elijahmanor Got it, didn't know that.

@beneaththetangles This match is very strange, how are we supposed to compare Violet Evergarden with the sports anime ๐Ÿ :blobfoxthinkanime:

@patrick Correct, I think I only copied the .env.production file and was done. Way easier than I thought.

@jorijn :blobcatnotlikethis: That's a lot.

I was already thinking my single-user instance using 2GB of DB was too much...

@patrick I recently moved to another cloud provider.

Wasn't too hard to setup Mastodon again

Long story short, just install it and import the DB backup.

If you are using Object Storage the media assets are a non-issue. Otherwise maybe rsync to bring them to the other machine?

@ayo From my research it's very lightweight, night and day compared to Mastodon when it comes to hardware requirements.

But moving an existing account to another BE on the same domain... I couldn't find a success story anywhere.

@elijahmanor What if you use midjourney to generate one?

@animenews thank you for sharing the wallpapers!

@aulia It was very well done! Loved the city but got bored with the doctor side-story overall.


@BrendanWeathers Loved the opening, got bored with the doctor side-story


@ranx Not interested ๐Ÿ˜†

@bearmine Yep, seems it's lacking direction?


โญ โญ โญ /5

Opening scene was great!

Then it got boring quickly with the doctor side-story even with the plot twist. Not sure what value brings to the story.


@queerlyso Same! Loved the dog fight and the glimpse into the city but felt super long and got bored fast of the doctor

Not sure what was the purpose of introducing this into the story of this season


@ranx Agreed! I still don't see why we were shown the side story of the doctor


โญ โญ โญ /5

Very disappointed of how they developed this episode. There was no build-up to the semi-final.

Nikaido's team lost but they didn't show us a single miss/fail.

On the other hand they did show Kazemai missing to then recover with Minato's long draw.

Still, in an instant they were out. All that rivalry of the previous episodes ended in a few seconds.

Am I alone on this? Or do you also think they didn't do this justice?

@NotMyBub thank you, once again. I will give it a try.

@NotMyBub I'm in a single-user instance and so far seems to work fine with what I have.

The specs was why I was considering doing the monitoring somewhere else. But it's lightweight I might give it a try.

The log retention (persistent storage?) you mention, is that configured on prometheus or Grafanaโ“

Thank you

@bigdarrio Agreed, needs to go back to the first season vibes.

I think it might go into that direction from what we've seen in this first one.

The western duel shoot out with the pirates, the fighter speed chase...

The only strange thing for me was the encounter with Bo-Katan, left me a little confused.


@derbadian Agreed! :mandalorian: is so good.

First episode was decent, building up to some epic stuff. Can't wait for IG-11 to be back and join mando to shoot things up ๐Ÿ”ซ ๐Ÿ˜

@NotMyBub Interesting! I don't have strong opinion so any feedback is welcome I'm just learning about all these.

What are the specs of your machine? I do have disk to spare but just 4Gb of RAM and the machine is also hosting a bunch of other websites.

@Stephan This is the way! :mandalorian:

Mando is back! Balance has been restored... ๐Ÿ˜Œ

- Very cool and dissapointing at the same time the scene with all the mandalorian fighting the creature. I thought they would end it fast ๐ŸŠ
- Grogu is till doing cute things :grogu:
- Can't wait for the droid to be repaired ๐Ÿค–
- The meeting with Bo-Katan felt a little akward. "I'm here to join you?" :blobcatthinking:

What's your take?


โญ โญ โญ โญ /5

More background on Nikaidล and how he only shoots for revenge. Very original, dude.

I feel he's just unhappy, he practices kyudo to prove everyone wrong and avenge his uncle (even if they didn't do him any wrong? Ok, the master didn't take him as student but that's it?)

Feels a little weak plot-wise ๐Ÿคท

The animation as usual, beautiful ๐Ÿ’œ

@NotMyBub Thank you for the heads up.

Plan, for now, is to host prometheus in the same machine as the Mastodon instance and use the Grafana cloud free tier.

Or maybe it's easier with the Oracle's free tier machine. It's a little out of my game, learning as I go.

@cambraca Thank you Camilo ๐Ÿ’œ

Then maybe this is the way to go:

- Install Prometheus in the same machine
- Setup exporters to feed Prometheus
- Grafana on the cloud (free tier) hooked to the Prometheus

Sounds like a plan :blobcatthumbsup:

@cambraca I also know nothing about all the parts involved, have read that post but wasn't clear

Also found this but it's on the same machine

I'd really like to not have it on the same machine.

Would love an easy to follow blog post on how to send the exporters to the Grafana machine (on GrafanaLabs cloud) :blobfoxthinkanime:

Is the prometheus going to be on the GrafanaLabs? Or is Prometheus needed on the same machine?

Will it slow down the performance if so?

Has anyone setup Mastodon monitoring with GrafanaLabs free tier?

The posts I've found all installing Grafana in either the same machine as the Mastodon instance or separate machine.

Wondering if I could leverage that free tier for my single-user Mastodon instance

@compass indeed, I haven't read the manga so I'm not sure where we are exactly story-wise.

Do we have a date on the next season's release? This year or are we talking 2024?

@rolle @vito I think not. Mastodon will not know the files are gone, it will try to serve them and the S3 will return 404 until the sync is done.

The reason I turned it on before the sync was to have already the new files uploaded to the S3. Didn't want to have to do yet another sync after the first one.

Not sure if this make sense.

@rolle @vito I did the S3 switch while doing the sync. Being in a single-user instance that's not an issue, plus all the browser caching (or CDN if you have that already)

Perfect episode at so many levels:

- Beautifully done in all scenes, doesn't matter if the characters are close or in background. Always attention to detail. So well done.
- How the characters are evolving, especially Shu.
- They killed me with the "Shu-kun" scene, so funny.
- I need more "slice of life" scenes like the ones in the dorms.

@jan Angles of Attack (Frontlines, nโฐ 3) from Marko Kloos


@rolle that somewhat explains it :blobcatnotlikethis: This one?



@rolle 1TB of assets? That's inmense for a 4 user instance ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I'm currently at 25Gb and have like 10-12 relays.

What does your cronjob to delete assets look like?

Here's mine:

The only reason to change to an S3 would be reduce the storage cost. Not sure what's your deal with Hetzner but usually dedicated S3 object storage is just cheaper than regular SSD's. Thanks!

dynamic name attribute would be nice, markup is there on page load rather than waiting for JS. But you don't look very convinced ๐Ÿ˜

@pixelcode I see it now ๐Ÿ™ƒ โœ…

@rolle The server does not have to be offline, as mentioned you can point it to S3 so it starts uploading there while you sync

@rolle Yes, that should do it.

Since you're in, what seems to be, a single user instance you could do the following:

1. Change the Mastodon config to point to the S3 (yes, it would break the existing downloaded images but if it's just you using the instance, it's not a big issue. Byt doing this the newly found image would start to be uploaded directly to S3)

2. Start the sync using the CLI so the already downloaded go to the S3.

3. Done? ๐Ÿ˜

@rolle thank you for the feedback!

I don't fully know how that storage mount works but you should be able to use a CLI to sync it to an S3. I've used AWS CLI and had no problems moving from local to S3 and the other way around. what would you rate higher than this season?

Looking for recommendations :blobcatadorable: is the preferred solution creating the iframe element on page load with :javascript: โ“ :blobfoxthinkanime:

@ayo yes! Enjoy the ride :ablobcatbongo:

@rolle are you using an S3 Object Storage I presume?

Ryouhei is just nice and cheerful ๐Ÿ’œ

Nothing like being a little rich, huh? Great equipment, private shooting range... but still, not as happy as Ryouhei. Food for thought.

It's great to see this season focusing more on each character. Maybe they didn't dive deep enough into Ryouhei's backstory as they did with the rest?

@jan oh no... :blobcatnotlikethis:

@jan Absolutely the right decision to decouple the concept of :mastodon: from that "main" instance. We need more education around instances to new joiners.

Glad to see the numbers but I still think it's too big. I think he said in a recent post that people are using the "Invite" links to let more people in. Maybe that should also be closed.

@ConnyDuck @knossos Thanks!

Would love to be able to have more than 5 tabs. I'm already at maximum with home, notifications and lists.

@bergmeister I don't know the code that cleans the statuses but my assumption would be it should not get deleted.

In the end you boosted it, it should be kept in your timeline forever unless you manually remove it.

Let's see if someone can dig into the repo and find out. maybe use this python API wrapper to get the follows and print their last post or something. To know when they were last active?

@lore I think we would you want a centralized (cursed word) documentation site. Rather than multiple sites. Sure both could be indexed but it's always easy to do a site search on a single site.

My problem is the official docs are not receiving updates often enough.

I did open a PR (now approved by a Mastodon maintainer) to document 4.1.0 new commands and it hasn't been merged. I'm confident it will fall through the cracks and not be merged... :blobcat_sadlife:


@afiestas It feels more like the deep archive mentioned here:


@afiestas @garritfra Well I think you don't usually put a CDN in front of cold storage data (glacier). It's meant to almost never be accessed. I'm not sure if you can even add a CDN in front.

For regular data you do standard S3 storage.

@fribbledom I still buy paper books from time to time!

@SecurityWriter Same!

I don't think it's needed. From what I've read on the GitHub pitch it will most likely be opt-in if implemented :mastodon:

I recently made the switch to and since I'm a single-user instance and don't manually upload/post media to it, I didn't notice.

It look me several days to download the 600GB (zip files of 50Gb) from Google Takeout (Photos) and upload them to the S3 compatible GLACIER class cold storage โœ… ๐Ÿฅถ

@csacaness You're so right. Also, the animation is just beautiful.

I wrote a small piece on season 1 now that the second just started:


@pegasus I tried the manga but it doesn't do it for me. It just doesn't click. I need the voice actors, I need the animation, the music...

I wish I loved the manga :blobcat_sadlife:

@pegasus Totally! I'll take whatever they give us (as long as it's well animated and drawn unlike the last aired season)

@rafael Could it be these avatars are simply not available in the remote instance? Have you tried going to the remote profile page?

@ayo That's what I currently do, I have a cronjob that runs this bash script hourly.

Once we have 4.1.0 I'll just add to this bash to include the headers removal. Done ๐Ÿ’œ


@Lapineige Thanks for clarifying!

@ayo Agreed! I'm looking forward the next 4.1.0 release where we'll be able to remove avatars and/or headers from remote accounts. Which wasn't possible until just now.

Truth be told I used to just delete the headers folder manually once every few weeks to free up my S3 storage. I couldn't care less for profile headers.

@ayo Yeah, not with Mastodon. I think and work like that, they don't download remote assets.

But it's not a great architecture either, because all instances act as CDN for you.

Granted it takes a lot of space on your instance but if a remove instance goes down, is not available or just slow you don't notice it.

โญ โญ โญ /5

We had to go through this episode eventually, the conversation with the past users.

They make Deku leaving the academia a bigger deal than what actually is going to be, I presume. But it sells nice that after 6 seasons "he's leaving" ๐Ÿ˜†

I hope we're back into action because we've had plenty of dialogue episodes already.

@ayo @elias What a coincidence ๐Ÿ˜† I'm moving Object Storage provider today and it's being a challenge so far.

I've managed to download 50Gb of assets from old S3 provider and now I'm trying to upload to the new provider. But the default upload set it to "private" which is no good. Trying to find a flag/command with the aws CLI to recursively upload while setting public policy.

Tough stuff!

EDIT: I think I've found it

"--recursive --acl public-read"

โญ โญ โญ โญ โญ /5

One of the best episodes of the season.

I despise Baro and I wish he would leave already, so I was very pleased when Isagi used him in the two plays. Just wonderful ๐Ÿ’œ

How about when he insults him back in Baro's words? Just priceless ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Who do you think will take this matchโ“

@sspopovich not sure if it means right to left?

I'm loving @Tusky so much that I went ahead and translated, as well as approved, a bunch of texts for Spanish and Catalan

@Tusky The same moment I install it for the first time :ablobcatbongo: :android:

@tim It took me all but 30 seconds to recreate my pinned columns (2 custom lists and 2 hashtag searches) :blobcatthumbsup:

Done, now I have the same experience :blobcattea:

@Tusky should advertise this feature more on the README or Homepage for the power users. I just found out about it via a GitHub issue asking for it.

:blobcataww: Turns out @Tusky allows you to add custom columns ๐Ÿ’œ

Account Preferences > Tabs


@jcrabapple Thanks!

@jcrabapple I thought you could potentially add an overwrite CSS in the instance but there's :javascript: involved to render the columns (mobile vs desktop), not just media queries

@jcrabapple it's certainly a workaround but it's clunky and hard to swipe :blobcatnotlikethis:

Is there a way (or other open source web client) to have Mastodon advanced columns on the mobile viewportโ“

Going mobile with the out of the box web app kills my custom columns (pinned, hashtags, lists...)

@waffles 3 release candidates, waiting for the stable 4.1.0 :blobcatboo:

@macdonst :blobcatgiggle: Totally!

@macdonst Warm, incredible warm. Just the last weeks or so we've gotten some "real" winter meaning highs of 10ยบC and mins of 4ยบC :blobcatgiggle:

@macdonst Stay safe! โ˜ƒ๏ธ

@ricardojndosreis A "little" too far away from Barcelona ๐Ÿ˜‰

@downey @jcrabapple lol how come I didn't find this before creating my own smaller version of the Mastodon Archive ๐Ÿ˜†

Thank you Michael ๐Ÿคฃ True! But I'm glad he lost against the top ranked players. A small gratification :blobcatgiggle:

@jcrabapple Here's a a post I wrote about creating a user's archive. I think you can adapt it to fetch the bookmarks and to not re-create the whole list on every run but do it incrementally.


โžก๏ธ haha I get that, I sometimes feel irritated by him as well ๐Ÿ˜

Are you up to date with the available episodes?

@ayo thank you for sharing!

Here's the follow up post:


@gallifreygal I liked a lot Salaryman's Club ๐Ÿ’œ

@nathalie I have several relays, that could be it.

But I thought statuses would be purged daily anyway.

@joeygibson @elijahmanor massive PR, I only allow those when it's a "search and replace" sort of refactor. They are rare but happen time to time :blobcattea:

I'm guessing this PR is all manual changes? :blobcatknife:

@erwin thank you for the follow Erwin, since you're at do you know who could I reach out about failed archives? Makes sense. Sure, the more I post, like and interact ๐Ÿ’œ

Just got that feeling that even with the cron jobs purging stuff it never seems to go down. Maybe if I didn't have the cron jobs I'd have double the size :blobcatnotlikethis:

Wondering about the database size for my single-user instance :blobcatthinking:

I'm at 1.4Gb with a 3 day status and attachment remove jobs.

Does the database size ever go down? Or the only way forward is up? :blobcateyes:

@gallifreygal Is this the one?

I'm just hearing about it. Should I check it out? Quite low score on MAL.


@jan Yes! ๐Ÿ’œ

Trying to generate my account export of all my data and after a while it says: "Something went wrong, Try again"

Excellent UX :blobcatfingerguns:

I guess I shall try again... ๐Ÿ˜ž


@cagrimmett That's awesome, congrats!

@george Best of luck!

We have a second season now, have you watched first one? You should, here's why:


"Learn Images"

An in-depth course on images for the web


@dave @mastodeck Thanks, I don't think I need another "column" client. It's not even open source, which I respect. It's just that the out of the box client works great ๐Ÿ’œ

@jan My private instance used to be at Linode, now on netcup


@dave I'm just too in love with the Mastodon advanced web view. I need my columns ๐Ÿ˜

@matt Cool link! Just tried with my private instance, says 49%

I guess thanks to the relays I'm connected to? :blobcatthinking: @nodejs Thanks, was about to suggest the same. Otherwise we can't really tell if it's the correct account.

"Tell HN: GitHub will delete your private repo if you lose access to the original"

โžก๏ธ Not sure if 10 out of 10, but a solid 8 for me. It's really good and different from what we're used to ๐Ÿ’ฏ

I just feel the animation has been slacking a little since the initial episodes. Like they burnt the budget on awesome stuff at the beginning and no we get a lot of static images.

@frank @emanuele PR created to document the new media remove options, if you want to review:


@frank @emanuele yeah somebody should open a PR for that updated docs :blobcatadorable:

@broximar :blobcateyes: Where is that?

Stay safe.

@cJ What's your take on lossless webp?

@simevidas Today I learned! Thank you ๐Ÿ’œ

@christian I did, some other had also recommended it so I gave it a go.

I've had zero issues so far. It undoubtedly depends on what you use it for, what your needs are. I moved from Linode to netcup and all good. More hardware, less money ๐Ÿ’œ

If you want an EU datacenter, you should check them out


@blasteh Very strange, I do use "Keep only the last version of the file" and the used space moves up and down. Not only up ๐Ÿค”

@killyourfm He is, very well played by both of them ๐Ÿ’œ

Haven't played the game, was this in it? If not, even if incredible moving (and depressing) was it necessary for the main story?

@rfaulder I went in with no expectation, oh boy what a ride.

Although I'm not sure how relevant to the main story this was.

@kfoleyfl Acting was incredible but the whole thing was super depressing :blobcat_sadlife:

Well, this was incredibly depressing.

I was excited to see Nick Offerman make an appearance, I didn't imagine it would end like this.

Not sure how much this contributed to the main story. Just to make the whole world setting sadder?


๐Ÿ†• "Psycho-Pass? I shall pass"

Contrary to more than 700,000 users over on MyAnimeList I didnโ€™t like Psycho-Pass ๐Ÿ˜•

Here are my thoughts:


@mergy The out of the box Mastodon web client seems to do this. When you hit "mute" it shows a "duration" dropdown (default: indefinite)

@mikestevens Do you have a link to GitHub or similar? Can't seem to find it with a quick search.

@CodingItWrong Makes sense, Josh. Thanks for the input.

On Android we do have push notifications with the PWA. Lucky ๐Ÿ’œ

Also agree on the design decision of the vertical icon bar, don't love it either :blobcatnotlikethis:

With that said, it not enough for me to switch to a native app :blobcattea:

@jr does it keep the column layout on mobile?

@Hbomberguy you can replace Publish with Toot with CSS if you're instance admin or through a browser extension injecting these few lines

@simevidas As usual I think it depends on the type of website. Most marketing websites that are presentation, sure ๐Ÿ’œ The less JavaScript the better.

When it comes to a web app, obviously not. Doing progressive enhancement without JavaScript on a web app with forms and such it's complicated and very expensive.

@afiestas Ya-hiro is very good but you have to wait too long. Plus I think they now open less hours than before.

The one I liked it's very good. I've tried a lot of ramen in Barcelona, I've also been twice to Japan on vacation and I can recommend it ๐Ÿ˜

Give it a try ๐Ÿ‘

@overminddl1 I think the reason was particularly because does not download assets to the server. Meaning the other instances act as a CDN for pleroma servers. This model is unsustainable for large instances.

When you use Mastodon, you get all the assets downloaded and served from your instance.

@overminddl1 That's sad. I read that some admins ban based on the backend used, like if you use you get instant ban

@charlesroper Yes, exactly!

@metadaddy Eugen just replied to the pitch ๐Ÿ”ฅ :ablobcatbongo:

@chadgoode Brave soul ๐Ÿ˜ I was too impatient and jumped into the Mastodon wagon too early without proper research.

I wouldn't like to lose followers with a change, so I would need a new subdomain/domain but I don't really want to that either. Current domain is so clean.

My setup works fine in my VPS right now with the media assets moved to super cheap object storage. I seem to have no problems, all stable.

@angst you got it!

Did you see the follow up post:

Hope it helps

@mjgardner Cool! It says it uses but not sure how up to date that is with the current UI for v4

I was mentioned in another post, it's too late for me :blobcat_sadlife:

@joeldebruijn That would be awesome, not sure how well it might work.

At this point I'm too invested in this setup to switch. Plus switching backend the same domain I'm told can have nuclear effects ๐Ÿ˜…

@ruud Would have loved to have instead of for my single-user instance but the frontend UI (advanced interface, columns) from Mastodon is too good to let go.

@dansup What would be the minimum hardware specs for a single-user instance?

Thank you

@matthiasott yes, please!

Very nice! You can use the good old client with to upload, download or delete files ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

โžก๏ธ nice to hear!

Thank you for the detailed response :blobcatheart: Hey Ryan, I love bridgy ๐Ÿ’œ

I wonder if there could be a way to use GitHub actions to leverage the Mastodon pings to my site, taking off load of your hosted solution.

Not sure if I'm the first to wonder about this. I guess bridgy is super big as it connects to many things. In my case I would only be interested in Mastodon.

Any thoughts? ๐Ÿค”

@cr0ybot Yeah that's the key, really.

I wish there was a way to host that on GitHub Actions or similar, to not depend on Bridgy

@robustjumprope That's so awesome, I wish I could. You know how expensive translated manga is ๐Ÿ’ธ

Last time I was in Japan I remember looking the manga prices, ridiculous ๐Ÿ˜

@mikey You're awesome ๐Ÿ’œ

@mikey hey Mike, I was given access to your nice relay a while back. I ended up removing all my relays to get my instance in order and now I'm slowly adding them back.

Could I get approved?

I mostly post about web development.

Thank you very much

@neovibe Hi there, could I join your relay?

I'm a single user instance (mostly posting about web development) looking for more content. I'm told is part of the relay, and will love to have their content.

Thank you very much

@neatchee Thanks! I'll try that relay :blobcatboo:

@justcamtro I hope they give us a season two of :ablobcatbongo:

I'm not a big fan of manga, especially on series that have action scenes.

@null @ericmann thank you!

@darius makes total sense, no sure why it wasn't done like that to begin with :blobcatthinking:

"How to communicate effectively as a developer"


@stammy Very impressive post, Stammy! ๐Ÿ‘

@shiukomaki length makes it more doable than or at least it feels to me.

The anime is so motivating specially going back to training after the Christmas break ๐Ÿ’ช

@ericmann Do you have a link to the Slack blog post? Can't seem to find it on their regular blog nor Slack Engineering

@chriscoyier The centralized hub of the conversations happening elsewhere (like here on Mastodon) but shown on the blog (and stored there) is already doable ๐Ÿ˜

Here's my small blog post about it, I have it working on two of my blogs without issues ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The only downside is that you need a third-party to complete the circle


@jackf What I expected, around 200โ‚ฌ :blobcatnotlikethis:

Thank you, sir

@jackf Jack, do you have link for this?

I'm wondering about the price tag ๐Ÿค‘

@shiukomaki Both anime are so good ๐Ÿ’œ

I am currently in my yearly re-watch of it's just fantastic.

I'm not even sorry :blobcatgiggle:

๐ŸŸ โž• ๐Ÿฅ“ = ๐Ÿคค


@rrwo Totally, depends on what you want. Usually when I post as "public" I want the wider the audience the better.

I think you could still tag and use "unlisted" โ“ :blobcatthinking: Don't get me wrong with the "politics" tag, was just an example which might not apply to the thread you shared.

Just wanted to share a different way of posting content other than content warnings ๐Ÿ˜ƒ No rules written anywhere, just what I've learned over time around here :mastodon: ๐Ÿ˜

Also, no I don't think you need to tag the replies ๐Ÿ‘ Unsure about CW. Some of us filter such content, though.

For me, adding a simple hashtag with these posts would help a lot (such as ) โœ…

Otherwise I'm sometimes forced to unfollow people who post about too many different topics untagged, since I only care about tech for instance.

Hope I made some sense ๐Ÿ˜€

Wouldn't mind an Aki spin-off too ๐Ÿ˜†

As far as as I know there are no news about a season 2

@derbadian Thanks! I'll add it to my list ๐Ÿ‘Œ I hope we get a season 2 :blobcat_sadlife:

@matt yeah, when deleting objects though

@scarletrain I need it too :blobcat_sadlife:

@JVitors How did you like it?

@thefatrat it's very well animated (the fights).

Two friends have read it before watching it, one is enjoying it the other not ๐Ÿคท

I did only watch it and enjoyed it a lot

@elijahmanor Cool, thank you! Thank you!

@elijahmanor Very clean!

What keyboard is it? Would love to try out FakeRelay with my single-user instance.

Could I get an API key?

@ezra Thanks! I'll use this for the next time ๐Ÿ™

@admin @waffles I have NGINX and the error.log was showing what I posted in my initial message.

Now looking at "journalctl -xeu nginx.service" I can't anything related to this morning

@waffles thanks for the hint, where would the web services logs be? ๐Ÿง

I'm getting this from time to time, restarting services doesn't help and I end up restarting the server ๐Ÿคท

@csacaness Oh wow I thought the complete opposite :blobcataww:

At the end I was hoping for an Aki-kun spin-off :blobcatgiggle:

The animated fights were good ๐Ÿ‘Š โš”๏ธ

@jaytay Will check it out, thanks!

@jaytay Yeah totally it's a lot. I have 8 relays added to my instance to get more out of hashtags and such.

In the end it's just costing me 0.3$ a month since I moved them to object storage :blobcatgiggle:


@gummipunkt Of course, here's what I currently run. The 3 out of the box available commands:


@gummipunkt I'd rather use a cronjob for more granular control (plus, you can log the output to a file to make sure it's happening)

PS: 30 days feels super high, I have it to 4 days and it's taking 60Gb :blobcat_sadlife:

@IgorGrouper Are there any news on a second season?

@Graycot :blobcatgiggle:

@stux Just started playing this one 2 days ago, it's fantastic. The dialogues are sublime ๐Ÿ’ฏ

@scarletrain Episode 12th was so good! 5/5 but just having 12 is painful ๐Ÿ˜”

Any news if there will be a second season?

@jan Plus one to Would love to see more unified lists ๐Ÿ™

@llbbl Thanks, Logan!

@hendrik Thanks!

@rick PR was merged, thank you for contributing.

With the new Mastodon release there should not be the need for these hacks, as we'll have a new command available to clean avatars and headers ๐Ÿ™ƒ

@chriscoyier we just need readers to engage in the blog (not like what I just did). Or have webmentions enabled.

Talking to the void is less fun.

@dpflug Thanks for the insight!

@kabir Nice! :blobcatthumbsup:

Yeah I saw those frontends too but none had the cool Mastodon UI. I guess it doesn't matter if you use a native app.

If you're going to give a try maybe check which I think is a little bit more active.

@kabir last time I checked looked a bit unmatained, there was no column frontend UI (which I love).

To "solve" the storage issue I eneded up moving the assets to a super cheap S3 object storage. It's less than 1$ a month


@kabir There's a command merged to the stable (not yet released) that will delete old avatars and headers. Which are currently not deleted by any out of the box command.

If you don't care about headers (I don't) some ideas we've had:

- Replace all images by a 1x1 pixel file
- Just delete the headers folder (that's why I currently do)


@hendrik :blobcatgiggle: Thanks!

Not working completely but nearly there


I spoke too soon ๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

The CSS is not being loaded โŒ I was seeing it in my browser due to the Service Worker serving the files but in incognito window I have no assets ๐Ÿ’”

I did run the precompile command and I see the files in the disk but I get a 404 ๐Ÿค”

RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails assets:precompile


EDIT: โœ… Fixed, folder permissions ๐Ÿคท

@lifeofguenter Thanks!

Moved from to

Half the price, double the specs :blobcatfingerguns:

The VPS is located in Germany (same as my Linode) and now has 4 Cores and 4GB or RAM. Although it's not entirely dedicated to Mastodon, so I've assigned less resources to it.

@kami Same! The docs are pretty good and the community here is ๐Ÿ’ฏ

๐ŸŽ‰ Successfully migrated to the new VPS :mastodon:

Now to fine tune the instance in the upcoming days based on the new hardware specs :blobcattea:

@admin Thanks! :blobcatthumbsup:

@hendrik Single-user instance here and it works nice. Relays, a bunch of follows, columns for hashtags and custom lists. With the relays I get a ton of sutff. Can't complain. Thanks for the heads up!

I will stop the services to be on the safe side.

@waffles Black magic, thank you waffles

@waffles Also, thank you for The Mandalorian reference :blobcatfingerguns:

@waffles How do I ensure the restore works?

I mean it's just dumping it from the original VPS and try restoring it? or am I missing something? :blobcateyes:

@sotneStatue Thanks!

@wild1145 Excellent, thank you. That was more or less what I thought.

โœ… S3

@admin Thank you! Wonderful links :blobcataww:

Negative on the platform, I will have to be manually migrated I supose (also, no docker setup)

I'm about to migrate my single-user instance to another VPS :mastodon:

๐Ÿ’ก Any tips or guides on how-to before I deep dive โ“ (no docker)

@synoforum Thanks!

Already 6 episodes in, the photography is great. Awesome mood of the Tokyo night life. Story is interesting enough and it stars the one and only Ken Watanabe ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Have you watched it?

@admin @fooderick I was about to mention

I just ordered a VPS but it's taking ages to provision my server. The initial pay has to be a bank transfer (being it international Spain > Germany) unless you want to use PayPal, yuck.

It's been almost 3 days. Feels like there's a dude with a bicycle on his way to Germany with my money.

So far, not the best onboarding experience but the cost is half of and I get double the hardware specs

@DavidDarnes Right?!

In so many technical interviews we find candidates not know how to use fetch because are so used to Angular or React ways of doing it.

Had Korean-style Fried Chicken yesterday, delicious ๐Ÿคค ๐Ÿ—

๐Ÿ“ธ โžก๏ธ

@Graycot :blobcateyes: Is that temperature even legal?

@knova Is it possible to swap a current Mastodon instance to in the same domain and not lose followers?

@vash totally, I have them in and that's probably the cause of the slow delete.

@zeh @vascorsd cheers! Thank you

@admin thank you so much for the feedback ๐Ÿ˜Š

@vascorsd yep, will write a blog post after I've played with it ๐Ÿ˜Ž

@vash Could be! I have not fined tuned the database, just out of the box.

Any good post on how to do it?

Other admins have said is specially slow at deleting. This might be the simple bottleneck (I can't fix)

@vash Once a day, maybe it should be twice a day so it takes less time each run?

I not only run this one but the one about status, preview card and remove orphans. At different hours Correct, the headers and avatars are not touched. The PR is merged and should be available in the next release.

In my case I couldn't care less about headers so I delete the whole folder. Nothing breaks. Sure the media calculation is wrong but a part from that I haven't found any issues and I'm saving a lot of GB's.

@thomas After moving to the S3 compatible storage it's running smoothly.

Only thing I've encountered is this:

@michael @timelordiroh Same! ๐Ÿ˜Ž My main account is the admin account

@michael Agreed, if it doesn't take all my CPU or RAM I'm fine as well.

Thank you, Michael! ๐Ÿ’œ

@jorijn Oh wow, ok so it's not just on my side.

Thank you for the input, Jorijn ๐Ÿ’œ

Removing media files (using ) is very slow ๐ŸŒ

Running the command right now says 11.000 files pending to be deleted and estimated time is 1.5 hours ๐Ÿ˜ข

"tootctl media remove --days 4"

- Does this happen to you โ“
- Any idea how to speed it up โ“

@pasmac What do you mean?

Some single-user instance admins say you don't even need a CDN, that they pull directly form the S3 bucket.

Since it's actually free for my usage, I decided to use AWS CloudFront in front of the S3 bucket, to reduce even more the usage in the bucket.

Not sure if I made any sense ๐Ÿ˜


Nice! :blobcataww:

1. Yeah once a week I go into the bucket and nuke all the headers folder ๐Ÿ˜ I just don't want/need them

2. Also yes, I turned on the "only last version".

I don't recall changing anything else.

๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช I have already Linode in a German datacenter, so that wouldn't change.

โš ๏ธ The cost though... netcup is half the price for double the specs :blobcatthinking:

I would not only be hosting a Mastodon instance but 10 other small websites (as I currently do on Linode).

@pasmac 3.25โ‚ฌ for the VPS is nice and cheap! :blobcateyes:

Definitely try moving the cached assets to a bucket :blobcatfingerguns:
