We have re-opened registration (new users still go through approval).
Reboot done! We are monitoring now.
Okay, reboot in five minutes.
Never mind, postponing the reboots for now.
Server upgrades have been completed, but we will continue to monitor. ElasticSearch full-text searching has also been re-enabled, though the index will be missing posts from a few hours today (we will fix this long term, but want things to stabilize for now).
Thanks again everyone.
Based on evidence from other admins showing the failure of mastodon.org.uk to moderate hateful speech from users on that instance, we have suspended federation with them – reach out to @ashfurrow with questions.
Another reboot due to extreme CPU usage. We are monitoring and will investigate this weekend.
Announcements for the mastodon.technology instance.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
