Service degradation notice:

Currently users from some locations are experience a slowdown in access and usage of instances hosted in

This is happening because one of the most important POP of OVH network is down.

OVH is the company that hosts all servers for and they are working on the problem:

I will continue updating this thread as I have more information.

Really sorry about the trouble this is causing.

To be clear, all instances are working normally it's the network access to the OVH data centers that is affected as traffic that was passing on the POP that is down is over loading the alternative routes.

Some users will not be affected at all (in Europe everyone should be able to access without a problem) but other locations can experience the slowdown.

Until the issue is solved the only work around is to use a VPN with the location set to Europe.

@dtluna @are0h @sathariel The sadder part is how are0h implies that we can't relate to people with different physical characteristics to us, and we must pander to them in order to be more inviting. The funny thing is, most people don't have my skin colour and combination... but I am still able to relate to characters that don't, and even write stories about those that don't share the same features. Diversity in ideas is the diversity we need most, and it is often pushed aside in order to have physical diversity in agendas like this one.

This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?

The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.

You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.

You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.

Hmm. Is there a Fediverse gaming instance, or not really...? I don;t want to spam this account with non-FOSS stuff if I can at all help it.

Toying with font designs, here's a very constrained 6x6 pixel font, full ASCII range. Use for whatever you want as long as you want it to look retro-techy. Use lowercase at your own risk.

hmm, for €5/month, using sure looks like it'll take a lot of the ballache out of running a personal instance.

I hate spending money, but it's like one coffee a month. :thinking_up:
