Since the server will be running Ubuntu 18.04 for a while, I switched the kernel to the HWE version ( which mean more recent kernels until the next LTS. For now this means Linux 4.15 -> 5.0.

Sorry for the downtime, something messed up permissions in /var/lib/postresql...

I will run some system updates on the server

Remember to use invites as much as possible, since the instance is in approval-required mode now :)

also please provide a link to a toot if possible

Hello there.

Since I didn't ban the gab™ for now, we've been banned from a few instances. If you know which ones, please answer this toot so I can update the block list.

Since I am here let me clarify three things:

- some say i have been personally harassed, which is not the case at all. There is just people talking about me or, nothing personal. I'm just fed up.
- I have said it multiple times but it seems I have to say it again: I do not plan on abandoning my instances
- i'm fine :)

Mmh actually. The API is getting DDoS. Cloudflare is blocking most if it.

These are script kiddies. This is not your website. Please show some respect.

I'm gonna restart the services for the sake of it

Is it still happening? I'm seeing nothing wrong from the server

Apparently the instance is behaving weirdly, i'm looking into it

FYI I wish I could just trash this instance and leave this toxic world that is the fediverse (at least as an admin), but many people trusted me by signing up here for the last 2 years, and even though there are only a few hundreds of active users, I can't let you down, and I won't. But I regret the decision I made more 2 years ago. I guess this had to happen one day or another. I'm fed up with this.

Because I consider the users here smart enough to decide what they want or don't want to see, might get blocked from an unknown amount of number of instances.

Sorry if this is affecting you, but this is my take on it.

@ users: feel free to move to another instance if you don't agree with this. You have every right to do so.

@ admins: feel free to ban if you really think that's what you have to do.

(Currently running an indexation, no impact)
