mastodon administration, technical details
if you run mastodon on ubuntu or debian with jemalloc and you notice sidekiq crashing frequently, it may be related to this issue with FFI: https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/15751
the fix in our case was to add LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjemalloc.so to the systemd unit files, so that all native (non-ruby) code could use the same memory allocation system
and then suddenly its fine?? didnt get a response to my support ticket but i'll take it
well, this sucks
server slowness appears to be due to degraded disk performance on the host, following up with them to see if there's anything to be done about it
cybre.space users: this appears to be due to the cybre.space web server taking too long to respond and returning a 504 / timeout error. if you see this happen, it might mean the server is just processing slowly and will eventually submit the post! (looking into why it's taking so long, but this should help you avoid accidentally submitting duplicates in the meantime)
cybre.space users: our media provider is having an ongoing issue, so you've probably noticed some images not loading and some uploads not working today. incident page is here: https://status.digitalocean.com/incidents/hyclhcgjs16g
they identified the issue as of 4 hours ago, so hopefully it is resolved soon.
cool media's still fine here
Question about #OrishaLand. Can any of you find a single article about it that isn't written by a cop when you search online? Very concerned about this, given that it's gotten a lot more attention from fascists, including local police, in the last few days. Can someone who's not fascist write about it? Can people work on a wikipedia page or something?
A group of Black revolutionaries have started an autonomous zone named #OrishaLand in #Austin, #Texas. They've already done a lot to fight #gentrification by organizing material support & political education for the local Black community. It's a real glimmer of hope for what has otherwise been a shitty #BlackHistoryMonth.
