Tech silly 

Most shells over here in Linux land will let you put in "!!" as a placeholder for "the last command typed". Meanwhile, "sudo" means to do a thing as the high-powered "superuser" that has access to everything.

So when it rejects your command, saying that you don't have access, and you want to re-try it as the superuser, you can type:

sudo !!

And it's kind of satisfying screaming at the computer in this fashion to make it do what you want.

A fun little idea I've had for a while: Rix as a Jedi.

I'm really happy with how it turned out. Doing a background was new from me but I felt I needed something.

So I guess now would be a good time to let people know I'll be at TFF this coming weekend. Feel free to come meet me!

(-) Semantics, annoyed 

I find it kinda annoying when people feel the need to put their two cents in on things as nebulous as semantics. A subreddit aimed towards the typical end user will refer to their gateway as a modem/router because that is how it is sold and marketed to them. Calling it a gateway, while it's true name, does nothing to help solve the problem. If I see the OP say modem in their post I will use that to avoid sounding condescending or adding unnecessary confusion.

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 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
