@support Hey, welcome! I see you’ve also created an account on @prologic@twtxt.net’s pod (i.e., the mother-ship of our little corner of the world ;) ). Just so you know, you only need one account, on any pod, in order for you to put messages out for others to read and follow, and for you to follow theirs in return. :) Any questions, just ask!

Didn’t even make it to a main road before I had a wheelie bin’s worth picked up. Pretty disgusted, to be honest, but I’m sure it’ll make the school run more pleasant tomorrow.

@bender@twtxt.net Thanks, both. She was still coughing a lot last night, but she’s been full o’ beans today; already been out to a friend’s party this morning, and showing no signs of slowing down this afternoon. Kids, eh? ;)

Belting out classic Billy Joel while automating my database backups, glass of white in hand and roast in the oven. Life is good, folks.

Anyway, that’s enough for tonight. Daughter’s still poorly, and’ll be up afore the hour’s done, I’m sure. 😪

In-reply-to » Familiarising myself with pgbackrest. Need to make sure this extended service outage isn't repeated.

@bender@twtxt.net It’s a valid question. I just didn’t do it regularly? I was confused by the different formats? I read conflicting advice about whether things could still be running? Databases, writ large, are a bit of a boogeyman for me? End of the day, so far, this seems to be just enough validation / certification plus automation to get me over the line; seems to be. We shall see.

Pretty sad about the state of affairs around buying music (and at least feeling somewhat confident that the artist is getting a good part of my custom). I still actually have an independent shop in my town, surprisingly, but they’ve had to specialise in specific oldies, and vinyl, for the most part. (I tried to get actual CDs of the music for the new Dune movie through them, and they tried, but failed, to source discs.) (I’ve got an HMV too, for now, but that’s hardly a place where you feel the artists get their due.) And today I’ve just tried to buy Einaudi’s music from his site, and they want €27 for shipping a couple of discs from Italy to the UK. So, Bezos’ gaff it is. Bandcamp is a nice (but niche) counterpoint to this; I have the same handle on that platform, btw.

@bender@twtxt.net lol. Well, check back in a month! (And to be clear, the services were run on a motley crew of small and old hardware, not just one Pi. :) I bet I could’ve pushed one to do most of it, though, all the same!)

In-reply-to » Hi Everyone! For the month of February @prologic and I are donating our beer budget to the yarn.social collective!! We would love for the yarn community to join us in not only ‘dry February’ but also making a financial donation. Funds collected will be used to pay a mobile developer to help build the mobile app! (@prologic can speak to these tech goals)

@prologic@twtxt.net Wow, awesome! Thanks, both! Looking forward to the spoils of ‘23! ^×^

In-reply-to » Pod / System update: there does seem to have been some data loss as a result of the recent re-homing of this service – including the warning issued from this account many hours prior! – but I'm hoping that, overall, the process hasn't been catastrophic; please do let me know if you have experienced any issues, or indeed still are. Ta!

@prologic@twtxt.net In effect, yeah. Lost some twts despite not much time between; wondering whether I should’ve taken advantage of those job functions for pod owners first, to sync the backend, for example.

@support@twt.nfld.uk Interestingly, I too lost data / twts, but it isn’t immediately obvious because our peer pods seem to be replicating some or all of those.

In-reply-to » Well, citizenship application is in. Now, the wait.

Been over ten years now: exemption visa (ending 2013) ⇨ visitor visa ⇨ charity worker visa ⇨ charity worker visa extension (until early 2015) ⇨ fiancé visa ⇨ spousal visa / start of the ‘five year route’ ⇨ halfway point check-in (plus fees, obvs; 2017) ⇨ indefinite leave to remain visa ⇨ ? (citizenship 🤞)

In-reply-to » Any recommendations on a good intro to webfinger? I'm guessing the Yarn.social support centres around pointing out the administrator account, yes? I've been working on getting websocket support up and running for my vaultwarden instance today, and just noticed some nodeinfo errors in my reverse proxy logs; I'm guessing that's because I used to run a Fediverse instance (Pleroma) back in the day. Do nodeinfo and webfinger normally go hand in hand, or are all the search results about Nextcloud errors swaying my understanding?

@prologic@twtxt.net Ah, neat. Ta!

In-reply-to » Greta Thunberg released after brief detention at German mine protest, police say.

@prologic@twtxt.net Sorry for the late reply: yeah, bender’s right; crossing a line just means, in some regard (or many, in Greta’s case), you can’t go back. As an example, if I’d joined Just Stop Oil a few years ago, I’d now be faced with having to move my family to Canada, a lengthy (likely doomed to fail) appeals process, having to find a new job… But Greta is young; she probably isn’t too concerned about where she can or can’t visit or live, and she obviously feels very strongly about this cause. Frankly, I’m in awe of her, and wish her every success. But that is a line that cannot cross; or not for a very, very long time.

In-reply-to » Greta Thunberg released after brief detention at German mine protest, police say.

@prologic@twtxt.net I think once you’ve decided to be arrested, you’ve crossed a line, you’re part of something bigger, and it’s the size of that body, globally, that really counts; less so what you’ve decided to stand in front of that day. We’ve got loads of Just Stop Oil people in prisons, for example, from last year; no one really remembers what they were arrested for; but they are being counted, to this day and every day, by a growing number of people around the world.

In-reply-to » In the name of the one God: Read the New Testament daily. Convert to Jesus. Take him into your heart. Confess your sins before God. Obey to Jesus. Ask him for the Holy Spirit. Get baptized in an ordinary church. Love your sisters and brothers and God.

@gopherchat@magical.fish I like the humanist angle to some of that; don’t have much use for the rest of it, I’m afraid.
