Pinned toot

Okay, I've fixed the redirect so it now points to "bob" instead of "TreacherousNexus" on bobadon.co.uk

It looks suspiciously like I ran into this bug with my new server:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

tl;Dr: If you setup an admin account on a single user server, don't setup a redirect on it! You won't be able to remove it afterwards! 馃槀

Just confirming that @TreacherousNexus@bobadon.co.uk is in fact me!

I'm going to setup a redirect from this account on tech.lgbt to my own self-hosted instance of on bobadon.co.uk. You should follow me there for new toots 馃憤

Thank you to the 80 people that have followed me here, and thank you to tech.lgbt for being my home on the fediverse for the last couple of months 馃檪

@TreacherousNexus@bobadon.co.uk Just confirming that this should now be @bob because I ran into a bug that broke things.

Do *not* setup a redirect on an admin account for a single user instance. You won't be able to remove or reset it afterwards!

@TreacherousNexus @TreacherousNexus I am now figuring out how to remove the other admin account. I suspect I'll have to use the "tootctl" command line tool to do it and then re-follow again 馃う鈥嶁檪锔

I don't understand why the redirect I removed on bobadon.co.uk is still present for most of you 馃う鈥嶁檪锔

Is there something extra I should have done beyond deleting the domain and clicking "save" in the "Move accounts" part of the preferences? I did this at 7am BST this morning!

I've tried restarting all 3 services & nginx too. But annoyingly looks like I just have to wait for other instances to update their federated link for now.

Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.

Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).

I realise I should probably sleep at this point, but I am "in the zone" with project work & these awesome metal renditions of familiar songs

Meh, hacktivism used to be sometime pretty cool (not perfect) where we managed to get some victories and changes a bit things. We even had quite some idea on how to change society.

Now we are cool hip hop kids in a gta like video game.

That's depressing.

I guess this is how capitalism win.

FIY we looked more like don't-know-how-to-dress nerd & awkward geek in suit who tries to talk to officials.

Gosh, I feel some much like an old depressed fart. You probably shouldn't talk to be about that.

I'm advocating to ditch Chrome/ium all the time but most often get negative responses.

Failing that, I think it's a well-documented explanation of what I did to make a handwritten website that works the way it does and which decisions you do and don't agree with 馃憤

Do you like how awesome, wicked-fast and "brutalist" bobbymoss.com is?

Well, here's a cool Github template you can use to achieve the same thing!

And yes, I am using the "light" theme.

I'm quite grateful for the simplified layout as it means I don't need to see a notifications column with semi-transparent grey text in it that clearly wouldn't pass WCAG validation if I don't want to.

I quite like the idea that there are people still using Visual Basic 6 for their codebases on a "morbid curiosity" level 馃槄

(Imagine trying to get a utility from the early '00s running on a modern Linux system, particularly after Ubuntu does away with 32-bit support!)

Ummm so the new single column layout may be a little rough for some (read most) of my themes :p
