🆕 Manga review: Midori no Hibi - Volume 1
⭐ ⭐ ⭐
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.
Don’t get me wrong, volume one was easy to read and fun but not something I’d invest money in having so many other good series in my to-purchase list.
@ljaesch That's awesome! Now I need to catch up with the manga (just started collecting it) and re-watch the anime 😂

"Weeknote 48 (2023)"
What used to be a weekend of massive discounts has become a regular Friday...
⭐ ⭐ ⭐
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?
@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 😁
@ayo "In progress" and get feedback 🙂
@prex Is this the one?
I don't know why I was expecting something very different 😁
In Spain there isn't Black Friday sales for books 📚 :blobcat_sadlife:
💰 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) 🌹 📖

@bamboombibbitybop Second person to tell me this today 😂
Think of the money! :blobcatfingerguns:
Transferred out all my #GoogleDomains to WordPress.com and they gave me +1 free year for each and better renewal cost.
@pawelgrzybek Had my eye on them but I want Spanish ISO
I've checked their site multiple times and they usually never have the switch + Spanish ISO combination I'm looking for. I don't understand 😢
#Steam is just awful when it comes to selling and buying 💰

Blue Exorcist, done with volume 2! ✅
Perhaps not as much fighting as I would’ve liked. I did enjoy the “slice of life” while living together im the dorm. Even if they didn’t expand much on it.
Where are we going from here?
@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.
@brozek Awesome, Brandon!
I'm with you about video calls. I do use an external (wired) microphone, otherwise I would have to get something else. I despise the Bluetooth latency when it comes to microphone. It's so bad.

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.

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.
I’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.
@feyo Glad it worked!
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
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...
Have some of our gang already died? Who's dying soon?

Servamp volume 2 is done ✅
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.

Episode 37, one of the best fights this season. Kudos to the animators from MAPPA 💯 👏
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 👌

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.
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.

@Psychonaut Thanks for the tip, Duncan!
Maybe #Ahsoka chapter one was a little slow?

I'm not a hardcore #StarWars fan so all the timelines and characters are not on the top of my head.

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 “back to square one” 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 Mikey’s older brother but the hatred they feel for Mikey makes zero sense.

@nubesurrealista ¡Feliz cumpleaños!
@blackestclovers You read manga not in paper!? :blobcatgiggle:
@ayo Anything longer than a week, I always bring it with me. Even if not for work but to backup photos.
@FreiGuy86 Thanks! I'll give it a try 🚀
@sahil Nice! Unsure if it's 29 double volumes, as they've edited them in Spanish.
Regardless, I'm happy that's a finished series so I know I'm getting into.
Lots of things happened in this second part. Pretty good volume 👌
It feels like we’re back to square one, though. We’re starting over with the same goal, to save them all probably (although I wouldn’t mind not saving Akkun, what an arse). What changed, though, is that Takemichi seems more decided now. I think he has learned and changed a bit, so I expect not to see the same thing again.

Episode 20: Is Mobile First still a thing in 2023?
Is the mobile-first mindset still relevant in the world of development?
Today we discuss the best practices and approaches for developing websites and apps for mobile devices.
@null thank you for the input! It seems I'm not missing out much.
Owning my instance is the my main reason for Mastodon. Very happy so far 😊
@null Very curious in your experience so far with Blusky. Knowing that you have a single-user :mastodon: instance, just like me (which is the, I think, best possible setup)
What's in Blusky that makes you use it?
@Shadow_KID01 Thanks! I might give it a try 😎
It felt a little bit worse maybe because of the overall mood. We see Ashito struggling, people yelling at him, telling him to go home even 🤬
He’s being portrayed as knowing nothing (which could be somewhat true at being a defender) but is it too much? He’s brilliant at times (without realizing it, that’s fine!) but other times is like… “Oh right, I could watch videos and learn from them” 🤦♂️
@null Hashtag bar looks awesome! Can't wait to hit stable.
@notwallygm Mookie is a beast 🔥
Sad for us :boston_redsox: but good to see he's doing so well ⚾
@pawelgrzybek Happy Birthday! 🎂 🥳
@earth_walker Totally valid 😃
I do wonder how they took the decision. App usage / telemetry, I suppose?
#Firefox 116 has disabled "pull to refresh" by default on Android.
I just turned it on.

This volume was good, maybe not as great as volume 4 for instance but we’ve got the biggest cliffhanger of all.

This volume has been very good overall, I think the best so far in terms of drawing.
Such intense panels, it has kept me reading fast. I read the whole volume in one sitting. I usually never do this, as I want to pace myself and enjoy them more. Was hard to stop reading this one. Well done.
@gpage Hey Grayson, I stayed with Mastodon because moving the backend to Pleroma or Akkoma seemed very complicated while keeping the same domain. I could not encounter anyone that did it successfully.
I did not want to change the domain (or subdomain) or lose my followers.
After the disk usage issue was resolved, the Mastodon instance got very stable.
@shanselman Bummer, I would imagine you're entitled to some compensation after landing. In the EU for long hauls, it's at least around 600€, better get informed.
Happened to me a few years back when flying from London to Seoul. I reached them out via social media and British Airways wired me the compensation in a matter of days. Great service.

@Joelysmile Fantastic drawing! 👏
@garritfra Got the same email for a post of mine
@To Same! I enjoy more the break between reading the different stories.
If I read the same story in one go, I don't enjoy it as much. Goes by too fast.
As I go back to work soon and won't be able to go to the library during open hours I went again this morning and got some more #manga
⚽ #AoAshi 1-8 (volume 1 was great)
👊 #TokyoRevengers 1 (did not love the anime but want to give this a try)
👹 #KimetsuNoYaiba 1 (love the anime, how's the manga? If I buy it I shall do in Catalan, not Spanish)
🔪 #Gokushufudo 1 (the anime is so fun!)
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Volume 1 of #AoAshi is done! ✅
I've read faster than my usual pace as I want to return them to the library to get a different series before I'm back to work.
This first volume already convinced me to start collecting it. Good stuff!
If it's as good as the anime, I might purchase it 💰
@ted Oh wow, these look amazing 🤤
⚾ When the #RedSox :boston_redsox: are so bad the most amusing inning is when a position player takes the mound.
@macdonst You work fast! 👏
Also thank you for the idea of checking the library see if they have manga I want to read but not collect :ablobcatbongo:
@macdonst You can tell it's a very old manga (more than 20 years old), the drawing style and such.
A friend gave me like 40 volumes so I'll read it, but not sure it's my cup of tea.
Caught myself with my mouth open at the last play of the game 😮 Speechless.
The #RedSox :boston_redsox: lose...
⚽ Blue Lock volume 4 is done ✅
Great chapter 31st and fantastic volume overall, the best so far. Such intense drawing and plot 💯
@DrunkCollegeKid Animation is fantastic but the main character is so creepy when his 40 year-old persona surfaces 🤢
I'm about 8 episodes into the first season and it was somewhat funny when he was looking at his mother's breasts... but when he looks at young girls... Not cool.
@blackestclovers Stop it, please :blobcatgiggle:

From Atsushi Ookubo, the author of Soul Eater, comes this action-packed anime with a similar art style.
I have finally finished the first season. Better late than never!
@ljaesch oh no... :blobcat_sadlife:
@blackestclovers I'm on volume 5, after watching several times the full series over the years I'm finding the manga equally good so far.
What I'm noticing is the difference in art style for the characters, a little bit more used to the anime... sort of like it more than the manga.
@blackestclovers You read too fast! You devour them :blobcatgiggle:
Since I started collecting manga this year I take my time, usually re-read each chapter twice to enjoy both text and drawings 😅
@blackestclovers I have custom lists for manga, anime, tech, etc... So I don't look at Home nor Federated.

@null ah wait I mixed Calckey with Misskey 🤪
@null why the rebranding? :blobfoxthinkanime:
@blackestclovers I see, importing the good stuff from the border :blobcatthinking:
They don't sell it in the northern country?
@blackestclovers :blobcataww: Amazing!
I see it's way cheaper than in Spain.
Here a volume is around 8€ :blobcat_sadlife: also considering the average salaries in Canada 😁 💰
@waffles First one was five stars, the animation, the plot, the voicing... The second one, not as great. Already hating the female character 😂
@firstname.lastname@example.org Amazing :blobcataww:
@email@example.com The supermarket?! That's awesome 😁
@gallifreygal Episode 1 was so good! Enjoy the ride :blobcattea:
@blackestclovers The first part of the episode was fun and entertaining, the whole beer thing :blobcatgiggle:
I got bored quickly with the new female character, re living the same thing from her point of view was boring.
@bartdorsey optional chaining indeed but not using:
Obj?.prop = value
@To Got it 😎
@moira You linked to my own blog post 😂
Thank you for taking a look!
@fell Yeah, not sure either 🤷
@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! ✅ 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 🤣
obj?.prop = value;
Which would be equivalent to:
if (obj) obj.prop = value;
I need this :blobcataww:
@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.
The whole industry while pushing so hard to make money effectively force you to pirate 🤷 🏴☠️

@blackestclovers that thing is 105 volumes long and not finished! 😂
Currently reading: Haikyuu, Naruto, Blue Lock, Bakuman, Bleach, and My Hero Academia.
On the lookout: Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer, Servamp, Attack on Titan and Fire Force.
I've seen the anime for most of them and feel they would be safe bets for manga.
@blackestclovers Love your style! :blobcatfingerguns:
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.
For now I'm following 5 long running manga, so I'm good but I already have my eyes in a few more :blobcatboo: 💸
@blackestclovers Funny enough I see there's a light novel on Amazon. Is yours a manga or a novel?
@beisbolcards I once worked with some colleagues in the East coast... It wasn't very productive.
@scribbbleanime Also... Yes we need to spread awareness about Blue Lock, it's too good to pass! :ablobcatbongo:
I'm slowly reading the anime, still a few volumes out until I catch the end of the first anime season. Looking forward to season two next year 🤞

@blackestclovers yes! Some episodes are frustrating as you want the relationship to move forward. But overall is a good anime ❤️

@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 #BlackMirror but a different show entirely. I don't understand. Just name it something else. Why use the franchise like that.
@kev This is fantastic 🤠 😁

Their enthusiasm is contagious I’m also excited to see what they can accomplish.
@waffles Nice! It's not a master piece but it's fun a different kind of anime. I liked it too.
How far are you?
⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Lots of text! When I compare Bakuman to Blue Lock, for instance, it takes me so much more time to digest each page. It’s not a bad thing, they are two completely different stories and one needs more action with less talking, while this one benefits from more context and information 👌
@rokojori Lots of things happened on Friday. Long story short, I got a copy that Friday and could enjoy the weekend 😌 :nintendo_switch:
So far the game is amazing :blobcatheart: :zelda_link:
Too short. It might make sense when included in a 4-chapter volume but not as a separate unit 🤷♂️
@ayo they also need more server stress test, because it's always the same story with Blizzard's releases :blobcatglare:
@peejay Thank you :blobcatheart:
@koire Congrats Koire, enjoy it :zelda_link: :blobcat_sadlife:
@marsh931 You're not alone! :zelda_link:
Amazon screwed me big time. Long story short I have 3 orders for the came with different delivery dates.
Maybe today? Tomorrow? Next week? Only time will tell... :nintendo_switch:
Would you believe me if I told you I have ordered 3 copies of #TearsOfTheKingdom on Amazon because the first purchase (which was pre-order in February) is scheduled to be delivered later than the latest purchase (tomorrow)?
We're talking delivery dates weeks apart. Nuts :nintendo_switch: :zelda_link:
@ppn Give it another try 😁 :zelda_link:
@ppn what does finishing even mean? 😁 Main story? All shrines?
⭐ ⭐ ⭐
What a short chapter, not sure why they made the first and second so long (or just right) and this one this short 🤔 Was this published like this in the weekly magazine in Japan? Maybe they merged 3 and 4 on the same edition?
@fantinel Same! Plus for some unknown reason the digital copy is +10€ more expensive. Strange world to live in... :blobcateyes:
@fantinel Spoiler = block.
:nintendo_switch: :zelda_link: I'm also getting it late despite the fact that I had pre-ordered back in February. It seems Amazon won't deliver it tomorrow but next week :blobcat_sadlife:
@peejay Thank you :blobcatheart:
It has happened before that the delivery date is just wrong.
I'll keep my hopes up a little longer :zelda_link: :nintendo_switch:
@Dani Same here for Amazon Spain 🤦♂️ :nintendo_switch:
Had a pre-order from February and it says it will be delivered the 22nd :blobcateyes:
:zelda_link: I just purchased another copy two hours ago and says it will be the 17th 😆
It's infuriating because a friend of mine who pre-orderd after me has it shipped already. Lives a few blocks away... :blobcatnotlikethis:
@koire Glad to hear a good second opinion. Then I did the right thing :blobcatfingerguns:
@koire Argh! The digital copy is actually +10€ more expensive than the physical on Amazon :blobcateyes: :nintendo_switch:
I will have to wait. A true test of patience :zelda_link:
@ruud :blobcatheart: Wow, thank you for hosting!
@DuncanMSussex Amazon says mine will not get here until next week. I hope they're wrong :blobcat_sadlife:
@peejay Unfair doesn't even begin to cut it.
Amazon says my pre-order from February might get here the 22nd :blobcat_sadlife:
What's more, I ordered a second copy an hour ago and says it will get here earlier, the 17th
My weekend probably ruined :zelda_link:
@Sh41 Enjoy! 💜 :zelda_link:

Great episode, full of action and not much talking. Glad we're closing Sagiri's nonsense for now and moving forward.
Gabimaru is more likable in each episode.
I wish Yuzuriha would die, running like a coward? Great ninja right there.
The only bit I was not convinced of was when Gabimaru was struck in the head and just bled for a minute. Then all good. They just said a minute ago that a hit from the monster would mean death 🤷

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.

@mondanzo It's different. The cache retention deletes everything (posts you've liked, bookmarked, etc).
There's a PR to amend the text so it's easier to understand.
The CLI commands are way more refined and only delete stuff you haven't interacted with, etc.
@mondanzo Does this help?
@julian The downside (hence why I didn't do it) is that it can't be automated. I didn't want to have to request and export, download and import it to the other system manually.
Using the Mastodon API and GitHub Actions running every day, I know my archive is fresh every morning.
@julian You could totally skip the API. Just go to your Mastodon instance profile settings and request an export of your posts.
Then have Hugo or something else read that export and build a site with it.

It was so well animated, no filler, nothing but the match. Each shot beautifully animated.

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.

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?

@michael Not my instance replied with 429, too many requests 😆 Maybe I hit the rate limit
I've set it to "0 100" and to run every 20 minutes
@michael Got it, will try 0 as well then.
@michael why do you set your action to "0 200" ❓ https://github.com/nanos/mastodon_get_replies/actions/runs/4353357913/jobs/7607288759
What does it mean to REPLY_INTERVAL_IN_HOURS to 0. Disable it, but what do I lose with it?
@michael Just ran it 😀

Very strange, rushed and predictable episode. I did not enjoy it too much.
- Joel's miraculous recovery was absurd.
- It was clear that David had evil intentions from the get-go.
- Why wouldn't the town-folk turn on David?
I'm sad that we're close to the end of the season and it has lost its touch.
Very smokey, just like #Lagavulin

I hate when they use CGI in some bits, just don't do it. They knew the manga was an action packed story, don't go cheap on us know and animate properly.
I'm a little disappointment with Bachira, the hype around this match was high but now it's like he's not even playing. Not sure I thought he would've had a more important role. Maybe it's coming in the next one?
@mdmrn Done! ✅
@insert a relay has died?
🛬 Landed in #Cologne 🇩🇪 with a delay.
The train 🚇 to the city center is also delayed :blobcat_sadlife:
Not a great start. Hopefully we can grab a bite around the main station upon arrival 🤞
The dashboard shows "toots" but that keyword is nowhere to be found in that JSON
I feel it might be out of date
@null :blobcatnotlikethis: Thanks!
@null Wondering if running "tootctl accounts prune" would be enough to keep things lean.
Maybe not good enough, maybe you interacted with an account (now dead) the prune won't delete it because of that activity :blobfoxthinkanime:
How long did it take to run the cull command? I'm guessing a while ⏳
@xvilo What's Grafana Loki? 😅
@michael Thought the same, too complex for me.
Check the other article which is easier to follow 😉
Followed this great article https://jaanus.com/mastodon-monitoring-prometheus-grafana/ from @jaanus 💜
Used the cool Grafana dashboard from @IPngNetworks 😎 https://grafana.com/grafana/dashboards/17492-mastodon-stats/
Now I'd like more Mastodon stats (number of posts, instances, etc) like they have in: https://grafana.hachyderm.io/public-dashboards/445bbb0e169f4e86b1d1eeee7e50c92a?orgId=1&refresh=30s
@piebob Very nice! 💜
@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 Grafana❓
@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.
@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... 😌
- Very cool and dissapointing at the same time the scene with all the mandalorian fighting the creature. I thought they would end it fast 🐊
- Grogu is till doing cute things :grogu:
- Can't wait for the droid to be repaired 🤖
- The meeting with Bo-Katan felt a little akward. "I'm here to join you?" :blobcatthinking:

More background on Nikaidō 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 🤷
The animation as usual, beautiful 💜
@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 💜
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 https://jaanus.com/mastodon-monitoring-prometheus-grafana/ 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
@ayo Get well soon! 😷
@kev That's a fast build, no point then 😁
Thank you for sharing
@hdv Looking good!
@ayo Cute! I'm dying to know what's the answer :blobcatthinking:
@esther That PR is so necessary, hopefully it will there for the next release 🙏

@jan Thanks, Jan!
Yeah I was exploring the whole Grafana thing but seems a little complicated.
@jan Thanks, Jan. I'll take a deeper look at the concurrency setting for the cron
@michael Excellent, I have disk to spare I'll try that. Thank you, Michael!
@michael The Postgre logs show all but up to:
checkpointer process (PID 39434) was terminated by signal 9: Killed
FATAL: the database system is in recovery mode
LOG: received fast shutdown request
FATAL: the database system is shutting down
@michael Found this in the syslog it seem to run out of memory, even though I'm usually at 50%
Probably happened while running the media cleaup cronjob
Wondering if I can limit that memory usage somehow to prevent this?
firstname.lastname@example.org: A process of this unit has been killed by the OOM killer.
system-postgresql.slice: A process of this unit has been killed by the OOM killer.
@jan You're going into the right direction, Jan.
Look at my syslog
systemd: email@example.com: A process of this unit has been killed by the OOM killer.
systemd: system-postgresql.slice: A process of this unit has been killed by the OOM killer.
Is it possible to somehow limit the memory usage, so it doesn't happen again? :blobfoxthinkanime:
@firstname.lastname@example.org @lifeofguenter Disk space is not an issue, plenty available. All my cache is on an S3 Object Storage
Thanks to@email@example.com I just found this in the syslog :blobcateyes:

@uastronomer Thank you for the input, Allen!
@uastronomer What am I looking for in the syslog? I'm at more or less the time of crash but can't identify much.
I'm where it starts to log "Rejected Announce activity" as the relays can't post into the instance
@lifeofguenter Where do I get those, Günter? 😅
@uastronomer Could be, I'm just using half right now but maybe the media removal cronjob took all the memory?
@jan Right now 2.15/3.83Gb used. Usually the server doesn't use more than 3Gb out of those 3.8Gb
Most probably it crashed during the media remove cronjob
Any idea how or why would #PostgreSQL crash by itself ❓
It took down the instance in the middle of the night ⛔

I do too have a (private) wiki (built with #Hugo) and works really well for me.
I have force myself to write in it more.
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.

Seems like it worked just firing it at midnight?
The brothers reunion was very anticlimactic.

I had it in my actual cronjob but forgot to add it to my blog post. Updated ✅
Indeed remove-orphans is quite needed.
@ayo The new commands are too good! I don't know how this wasn't prioritized earlier in the project's roadmap and had to come from an external contributor 🤷
Went from an average of 60Gb to now 22Gb, which might be 100% free of cost if using an S3 provider with a free-tier :blobcataww:
@anlomedad Here's the cronjob I use to keep the space usage to minimum:

🆕 How to schedule posts with Mastodon
The other day I wanted to post several links and posts on #Mastodon. I didn't want to flood my followers' timeline with my face several times in a row. So I wrote this:
"Web Push for Web Apps on iOS and iPadOS | WebKit"
@rolle that somewhat explains it :blobcatnotlikethis:
@3rdNRobzilla13@universeodon.com This one?
@rolle 1TB of assets? That's inmense for a 4 user instance 😮 I'm currently at 25Gb and have like 10-12 relays.
What does your cronjob to delete assets look like?
Here's mine: https://ricard.dev/improving-mastodons-disk-usage/
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.
dynamic name attribute would be nice, markup is there on page load rather than waiting for JS. But you don't look very convinced 😁
@pixelcode I see it now 🙃 ✅
@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? 😁
@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.
@ayo yes! Enjoy the ride :ablobcatbongo:
@rolle are you using an S3 Object Storage I presume?

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

I'm inclined to think Chigiri for his speed. But it could very well be Reo for his passes. I do not think it will be Kunigami, it's too similar to Baro but weaker 🤔
@lee Did you migrate the current domain instance from Mastodon AWS to Pleroma?
I didn't know it was possible to change backends easily.
@bramus Awesome demo, Bramus!
@shiruken Nice find!

@oliphant Regarding the pull when needed, don't think it works for webMentions from my blogs.
For instance here https://ricard.dev/how-to-add-web-mentions-to-your-wordpress-site/ people who liked the post might not follow me or I might not follow them. I don't know if they liking my post constitutes "interaction", thus their avatar would be kept in cache :blobfoxthinkanime:
@oliphant It seems to go into that direction
I did a PR to document these new commands (pending to be merged)
Unsure about the exact conditions
@oliphant In run a bash with the commands for removing status, media, previews, and now headers.
The bash runs every hour and I pass "--days 3" to keep it lean :blobcatfingerguns:
@oliphant That removes also avatars, but I'm not sure if I want that.
I use webmentions for my blogs, it's nice to see the avatars there. I wonder if I'll be removing avatars from users who have mentioned my posts.

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

@thor I wonder if prune will be a little overkill as I'm using relays to populate my instance of more juice.
I might be deleting and re-creating the same accounts constantly.
"tootctl accounts cull" is in the docs.

@michael Wonderful! Thank you, sir!
@ayo You deploy directly from your local to PROD? Brave soul 😁
@ayo Funny that you say that, I just merged a PR for a production hot fix :blobcattea:

Such a different episode from the previous one, I think we're all still recovering from it.
It's nice to see their relationship strengthen 💜
Entering the city reminded me too much of The Walking Dead. Getting of the highway was clearly dangerous and Joel knew it :blobcatglare:
Unsure what's going on with these new people and the personal vendetta to find the one they call Henry. Like you don't have more important things to do? We need more info.
🆕 Review: Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun
@ayo Very nice! 💜
😮 Learning about cold storage (S3 Glacier compatible Object Storage).
This particular provider states:
"Stored in a former nuclear fallout shelter 25 meters underground, your data is totally secure and isolated from all natural and technological risks."
💡 Thinking about using it for storing my processed photos (around 600Gb) which should cost me about 1.5€ / month. I do need assurance against nuclear war :blobfoxthinkanime:
@ayo thank you for boosting!
@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:
@rafael Could it be these avatars are simply not available in the remote instance? Have you tried going to the remote profile page?
@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.
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.

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" 😆
I hope we're back into action because we've had plenty of dialogue episodes already.
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.
EDIT: I think I've found it
"--recursive --acl public-read"
@ayo Could it be this one?
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ /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 💜
How about when he insults him back in Baro's words? Just priceless 💯
Who do you think will take this match❓
@sspopovich not sure if it means right to left?
@null :blobcatgiggle: That was fast!
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.
@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 viewport❓
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 10ºC and mins of 4ºC :blobcatgiggle:
@macdonst Stay safe! ☃️
@ricardojndosreis A "little" too far away from Barcelona 😉
@firstname.lastname@example.org 🤣 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.
@email@example.com haha I get that, I sometimes feel irritated by him as well 😁
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 💜
@nathalie I have several relays, that could be it.
But I thought statuses would be purged daily anyway.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Makes sense.
@email@example.com Sure, the more I post, like and interact 💜
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:
In #WebDevelopment do you know what a polyfill is?
@jan Yes! 💜
@cagrimmett That's awesome, congrats!

"Tsurune (season 1): one of the most beautiful animations"
We have a second season now, have you watched first one? You should, here's why:
@dave I'm just too in love with the Mastodon advanced web view. I need my columns 😁
@matt Cool link! Just tried with my private instance, says 49%
I guess thanks to the relays I'm connected to? :blobcatthinking:
@Alex0007@mstdn.social @nodejs Thanks, was about to suggest the same. Otherwise we can't really tell if it's the correct account.
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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 💯
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.
@broximar :blobcateyes: Where is that?
@cJ What's your take on lossless webp?
@simevidas Today I learned! Thank you 💜
@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 🤔
🆕 "Psycho-Pass? I shall pass"
Contrary to more than 700,000 users over on MyAnimeList I didn’t like Psycho-Pass 😕
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)
@mergy You're welcome, glad it helped.
If your VPS is running out of disk regardless, here's a follow up post for you:

@MunsterPlop Yep, totally. It's hardcore 😁
@rckt Sublime is nice! Although having VSCode I don't see the need.
@ecadre :blobcatgiggle: Thanks, Andrew
@ecadre I've played with it a little bit, it's not easy! 😁
@publicvoit lol, thanks Karl!
@koire That's exactly one of the reasons a colleague told me about WebStorm. Just plug and play.
But I can't possibly justify a license having VSCode available.
@dekkzz76 I'm learning a lot of stuff today 😁
Didn't know it capable of doing all that.
@dekkzz76 :blobcatgiggle: Amen!
@boutell It is indeed 💜
I get people's arguments about Microsoft and all but you could the a fork that has no telemetry and such.

@Prof_Meowmers Makes sense!
What sort of customization are you referring to?
@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 💜
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:
:blobcateyes: I don't get all the fuzz with the Android and iOS #Mastodon apps. They only make sense to my if you manage multiple accounts 👥
It's not the best, I'd love if it kept my desktop column view on mobile. But it's a web app, nothing extra installed on my device 💜
What am I missing? :blobcatthinking:
@jr does it keep the column layout on mobile?
That's my main pain point withe out of the box Mastodon progressive web app. On desktop I have advanced view but not on mobile :blobcat_sadlife:

@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 😁
Give it a try 👍
@overminddl1 I think the reason was particularly because #Pleroma 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.
@charlesroper Yes, exactly!
@null Finally! Looking forward other stuff.
The import/export of blocklist will trigger massive bans I guess. Too easy to copy and paste a list from some site.

Would love to have the advanced web view in mobile too, that it would keep the columns, pinned, etc. I would love to just swipe and get the next column
If you use lists and such, the mobile web experience is poor :blobcat_sadlife:
Ah! If you intend to stay zero-cost, another Mastodon admin suggested Oracle's free tier: https://social.racf.guru/@jaytay/109596945647190011

@jan In spirit of decentralization and content ownership (own your blog) this doesn't feel right 😅
@ruud You went from 0 to 2 Akkoma instances, nice 😁

Turns out you can't really use a URL shortener on Mastodon as it creates hundreds of fake clicks when the instances try to render the preview 😅
At least not with the one I tried to self-host

@metadaddy Eugen just replied to the pitch 🔥 :ablobcatbongo:
@chadgoode Brave soul 😁 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
@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 😅
@thomas That's the one I was just trying out. Thank you for the recommendation! 💜
@billy excellent! Thank you, Billy 💜
@metadaddy you're awesome :blobcataww:
@metadaddy perhaps Mastodon should make use of that? Maybe it's on the pipeline to be implemented

@charlesroper I like Cypress for simple stuff, it can get complex fast if you need to mock API's and stuff.
It has a built-in test recorder (records clicks, keyboard strokes and such) so you can create tests easily. For less advanced users that don't want to write the tests manually.
@pandorasjar It's all part of the plan 😁
As I see, it is really a sad story 😢 The last episode was so wholesome, I need more of that and less sadness 💜

@snarfed.org Hey Ryan, I love bridgy 💜
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? 🤔
@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

@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 😁
Here's my small blog post about it, I have it working on two of my blogs without issues 😎
The only downside is that you need a third-party to complete the circle

I think you could still tag and use "unlisted" ❓ :blobcatthinking:
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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 😃
@email@example.com No rules written anywhere, just what I've learned over time around here :mastodon: 😁
Also, no I don't think you need to tag the replies 👍
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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 #politics ) ✅
Otherwise I'm sometimes forced to unfollow people who post about too many different topics untagged, since I only care about tech for instance.

@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)

@llbbl Thanks, Logan!
@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 🙃
@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!
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)
I spoke too soon 💥 😱
The CSS is not being loaded ❌ I was seeing it in my browser due to the Service Worker serving the files but in incognito window I have no assets 💔

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 #Linode and I get double the hardware specs
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.

I not only run this one but the one about status, preview card and remove orphans. At different hours
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
@michael Agreed, if it doesn't take all my CPU or RAM I'm fine as well.
Thank you, Michael! 💜
@jorijn Oh wow, ok so it's not just on my side.
Thank you for the input, Jorijn 💜
@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 😁
1. Yeah once a week I go into the bucket and nuke all the headers folder 😁 I just don't want/need them
2. Also yes, I turned on the "only last version".
I don't recall changing anything else.
@philipp Thank you for sharing, Philipp!
There's a follow-up post: https://ricard.dev/scaling-mastodon-moving-media-assets-to-object-storage/
#Mozilla to Explore Healthy Social Media Alternative
"In early 2023, Mozilla will stand up and test a publicly accessible instance in the Fediverse at Mozilla.Social"
@lifeofguenter Done, thank you!
@stux same! :blobcatgiggle:
@jalmari will report back
@jalmari I've pulled the trigger and ordered a VPS :blobcatfingerguns:
Will give this a try next week :ablobcatbongo:
🇩🇪 I have already Linode in a German datacenter, so that wouldn't change.
⚠️ 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 3.25€ for the VPS is nice and cheap! :blobcateyes:
Definitely try moving the cached assets to a bucket :blobcatfingerguns:
@pasmac More details on their pricing here
