Hey, so, since Mastodon's been amazing to me and probably the main drive force behind the recent pin sales, I'd love to give back a little. I don't have a ton of money (shop/patreon are pretty much my only sources atm) but I'd like to donate $50 between, say, 5 servers that are struggling just as a test for now?
Paypal only, sorry i'm not one of the cool kids :( If you're an admin of a masto instance or would like to nominate one, DM me!
(got cybre.space covered already, of course)

I finally finished the server move. Took significantly longer than I was hoping for but that's alright. The good news is it's done now.

Blessing that timeline with rainbow socks ❤️ 🧡 💛 💚 💙 💜

Server Upgrades 

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.

I got a Barracuda 330 acting as a hardware firewall. So far I've got my snort subscriber rules loaded and now I'm tuning Squid to actually cache stuff. Currently the hit-miss ratio is making me cry. I gave it 110 GB plz cache all the things!

Had my first cup of deathwish coffee and I am so awake right now haha xD

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

Puppo Space has been online for almost a year now and I've kept the standard mascot image for far too long.

Maintainance Alert 

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.
