Just a Ko-Fi Link 

I setup a Ko-Fi in case anyone wants to help support me.

Also if you'd like to support the instance any bit helps to offset the cost of hosting.

My name is Francis. A Fox who enjoys doing system/network administration both as a job and hobby, mostly Linux.

I'm a very open-minded person, support LGBTQ+, and am overall a pleasant individual. When I'm not managing servers I'm ether sleeping or playing video games.

I like following artists in the fandom, meeting new people, and having fun!

Not very NSFW myself but I do follow those who are and enjoy their content, don't take it personally if I don't boost or fave/like.

Hmm, what's the better option these days for an Android client? Or is there a better one I've not listed?

Puppo Space ElasticSearch functionality enabled 

Hello! Today I'm enabling ElasticSearch on the instance.

This will allow logged-in users to quickly look for posts they favorite, post, and are mentioned in. It does not allow full text search of the entire mastodon post database.

Not sure how much use it will have but search will now be available if you need it.

Looks like I may have discovered partially what is going on here.

According to a few web testing programs I was using to look deeper into it, the SSL certificate on the server is reporting not being trusted although it is working in my browser and in other places across the web.

Looks like an issue on LetsEncrypt's side. I'm going to generate a new SSL certificate and try again.

Puppo Space Unscheduled Maintenance 

Instance went down for a little unannounced maintenance. In troubleshooting an issue of some toots not appearing in the public timeline I noticed the backend system could not query the database for the instances it has "learned". I believe this caused issues with the instance going out to known instances and asking for new posts.

I exported and then reimported the mastodon database. Hopefully we see some improvement here.

Commissions are open! Please see my commission page for prices and availability! Please also note that I mainly want to focus on sketch style and avatars in this batch, so if you commission a full color, it may take longer. Thank you!!

Puppo Space users:

How would a rotating mascot sound? I know for a while now it's just been my fox being a derp but I'd like to encourage anyone who'd like to have their character included as a rotational mascot in order to keep things feeling fresh.

Service Downtime 

Feel free to beat me over the head with a boot. More extended downtime due to a forced host migration on my part. Sincere apologies that was down for as long as that was.

Local Instance, DB, Extended Downtime 

I apologize for the extensive downtime that occurred for Puppo Space. I've been in the process of moving servers around and the postgresql database absolutely required an upgrade.

What Have They Done - What Do They Have Planned

Microsoft, Windows Edge (-) 

I also find it incredibly brazen of them that they can't seem to find the time to continue providing security updates for Windows 7 but will gladly push this garbage onto them as well... Like I wish I was making this stuff up. I am beyond words.

Microsoft, Windows Edge (-) 

I know this is probably making it's way around the web but can we all agree that Windows is spyware now?

This is not the first time they have silently installed stuff on people's PCs and the fact that they automatically imported stuff from Chrome without asking just took the icing on the cake. All my user settings, bookmarks, favorites (potentially browser password vault!?) all just slurped up into Microsoft's data center.

Meet my fursona, Orion! I updated my look a little and decided to get a new ref sheet with some extra bells and whistles. Thank you to for my amazing and cute new ref sheet!
