It seems like the federation doesn't have a good way of dealing with the life cycle of instances. Every time a significant one shuts down it's a big upset. But it's to be expected that this is something that will happen on a regular basis - on long-time average, instances will shut down about as often as new instances are created - and the system needs to be able to keep working as instances leave.
Y'all synth people in Toronto might like to come to this - or to the expo as a whole, where I'll be exhibiting when I'm not giving this presentation. https://www.facebook.com/events/3004119832950447/
RCM "Feels Like Friday" Hopped Buckwheat Session Mead. Hops flavour and aroma right up front that fades away immediately. Very light body; floral, grassy, vegetable aftertaste and unfortunately a hint of manure. Drinking it really makes me feel like I'm out in the sun in a farmer's field. Three stars - I'm glad I tried it because it's a neat idea (mead presented like a beer), might drink it again, but not an instant favourite.

North Coast News: Three suggested systems https://northcoastsynthesis.com/news/three-suggested-systems/
Y'all who run servers, please do a netstat -n and see whether you have a whole lot of SYN_RECV entries from these blocks: 22.214.171.124/21 126.96.36.199/22 188.8.131.52/24 184.108.40.206/20
They are the networks of "Garanti," a major bank in Turkey currently under DDoS attack. Somebody's forging such addresses on SYN packets to make other servers on the net hit the Garanti network with replies. If you don't have a reason to expect packets from Garanti, dropping them would be good citizenship.
