Pinned toot

Besides all the hassle today that I had with my mastodon instance, I sneaked out a little update to my page:

shivering-isles.com/matrix#blo

A new Matrix room for bloggers of all kind! The idea is to exchange about the tech behind your , theming, tips and ideas for articles, and other things that surround it :)

Looking forward to see you around and hopefully get introduced to your blog :)

Updated my postgres container configs. Might be useful for you too:

git.shivering-isles.com/shiver

git.shivering-isles.com/shiver

TL;DR: Extending the grace shutdown period and introduce postgres to shutdown ASAP when stopping a container instead of telling it to stop using sigterm and then kill it off after 30 seconds resulting in a recovery mode on next start. (Your database should be able to recover anyway, but why try it so hard?)

Oh GitHub is hotel california tonight, again… Change something, save, refresh and its gone \o/

I think it would be really awesome to see some people from the movement that @kev started, to come together and exchange in the matrix channel `:shivering-isles.com`, which I recently founded in order to share with and learn from other bloggers.

Due to the virtual nature I can't offer beer and softdrinks, but I would love to see more people around sharing their ideas on how a blog can look like :)

Fascinating to see how we're treated because Google doesn't yet have our new street or address on its maps. Food delivery & couriers failing. Online services requiring addresses are baulking. Very frustrating. These services depend on Google Maps/Addresses, but Google offers no guarantees about timely updates. Rather worrying the degree to which these proprietary dependencies emerge. Should be an open gov't service! openstreetmaps.org has had our address/street for months, since I added it.

Shower thought, surveillance capitalism 

The Ad-industry is the "sugar daddy" of the internet. It sponsors a ton of stuff which you wouldn't buy or be able to afford otherwise while exploiting you and ruin everyone's life.

Meine Bubble hier ist zu #IT lastig. Ich brauche eine #Politik Bubble hier 👀

Anyone knows how to solve the problem of undetermined picture size in combination with native lazyloading?

When I understand things correctly, in order to prevent content reflows I have to provide image sizes/dimensions, but how to calculate them properly in a responsive design?

With the right policy for the S3 bucket in place, this worked out.

Details: mastodon.infra.de/@galaxis/104

Then I ran `tootctl upgrade storage-schema` and it basically fall apart by telling me the bucket doesn't exist. (checking all details seems fine for me, but hey, what do I know)

Currently running `tootctl accounts refresh --all` 🤞 Hope that makes it all good again.

So #Mastodon v3.1.4 now stores remote media in a new "cache" directory. It was automatically created on my S3 storage provider (my own, running #minio) during the upgrade, but wasn't assigned an access policy, so all new media files turned out unreadable.

Had to do a "mc policy set download media/mastodon/cache" to make it accessible to the public.

If your new to #mastodon and you’re interested in #technology, #opensource, or #privacy topics I’ve made a list of accounts to drop a follow only OFFICIAL ones not bots

Be sure to #boost

Tor Project - @torproject
Matrix Project - @matrix
Proton Services - @protonmail @protonvpn @ProtonCalendar
Swiso - @switchingsoftware
PrivacyTools - @privacytools
Mastodon - @Mastodon
Pixelfed - @pixelfed
Pixeldroid - @PixelDroid

Mhm, is there a good way to debug problems with image uploads on Mastodon? It seems like since 3.1.4 my s3 backend reports invalid object names and I'm not sure what Mastodon is doing there. Couldn't really find any errors in the default logs.

Hints are welcome

Anybody have any recommendations for discovering new #opensource projects that are looking for contributors?

I'd like to provide my time to smaller projects that are struggling to find contributors, rather than giant projects that have visibility already.
