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.
So I'm planning to do a big server migration and consolidation project over this weekend. During this time I will be revamping my efforts. Some of the changes will be server consolidation. Over the last year I've added 6 dedicated servers. I'm hoping to consolidate things down to just 4 or 3 physical servers. Another improvement you will see is increased bandwidth.
I'll make another announcement when the move is complete. This move will improve load times as well.
fediverse poll #2 (edited), boost ok
(edited version for clarity)
How much do you spend monthly on hosting your pleroma/masto/masto fork/pixelfed/funkwhale/reel2bits/etc. ?
Boost super welcome
Note: I'm after instances with less than a 300 active users weekly.
Note 2: if you have more users, just reply to the poll with the amount of users.
Note 3: if you run other services on that VPS, make a guess of how much it cost proportionally
I hear this all the time:
"I'm a nobody; why would anyone want to hack me?"
I've got six reasons for you:
You have money.
You have good credit.
You were randomly chosen.
You pissed off the wrong person.
Your friend or family members pissed off the wrong person.
You put yourself out there as an online entrepreneur, Twitch streamer, YouTuber, etc.
If you think no one would ever try to hack you, you need this episode.
There's going to be a live YouTube Premier of this episode at https://YourSecure.Life/2 at 5 PM Eastern US time.
If you're not seeing this post until after that time, don't worry...you can still watch it. Any time, anywhere. Just go to the website.
There is also an audio version (it is a podcast afterall) and a text version of the transcripts, if you're more into reading.
Puppo Space will be going down for maintenance at 2:00 PM EST today. The provider is going to be troubleshooting IPv6 connectivity between the web and database servers which means both will be offline while they work to solve the problem.
During this downtime, both ICANN and OpenNIC DNS resolutions will also be offline so please plan ahead if you happen to point to ether of those servers for DNS during this maintenance window.
While applications shouldn't be able to override the system-set DNS servers. Many of DoH's "pitfalls" are that people got way too comfortable passively reading the plaintext DNS queries as they traveled over the network. Like honestly this move to encrypted DNS should not have been a big surprise as everything became encrypted.
