for the first time in my life, I've had an idea for a website and purchased the domain before building it. usually I'll build it, then get a domain (or, more often, lose interest). cool feeling let's see how it plays out.

on the one hand, Apple is a closed ecosystem and that’s bad

OTOH, the new watchOS let’s you make pride flag watch faces, so who can say

ANYWAY! Jogging is going great so far. The aggro veins on the back of my hands are already getting more prominent again 💪

at my initial consultation, the surgeon decided to scare me by telling me a story about another patient who had had their hernia repaired but then tried to deadlift right afterward 😅

I'll spare you the visual imagery that she painted in my mind

exercise / ph + 

so after the doctor appointment last week, I've been cleared for light physical activity again so you better believe I was out for a jog within two hours 🏃‍♂️

going well so far, taking it slow and easy. I refuse to become one of those people who end up injuring themselves by pushing too hard too soon after surgery. I refuse to become a statistic.

I really appreciate the help & support. Have a great day everyone!

The dedicated ones are more expensive but it feels like we're hitting CPU-bounded scaling issues, and a dedicated core might be the right call.

If you were going to create a new DigitalOcean droplet to run a Mastodon instance, with about a thousand weekly active users and tens of thousands of total local users, would you pick the "basic" type with standard, shared vCPUs OR would you pick the "dedicated" type with your own guaranteed hyper thread? Docs are here but I'm not sure which would be best: digitalocean.com/docs/droplets

masto admin question 

Okay, so the address *is* reachable from the instance via ping6. So the question really is why the connection is failing. Could be unrelated to IPv6. I’ll investigate.

For anyone curious, here is the error in Sidekiq:

HTTP::ConnectionError: failed to connect: No address for peertube.iselfhost.com on peertube.iselfhost.com/account

masto admin question 

Is it wrong, to defederate with an instance because it can't be accessed over IPv4? Almost certainly it is. Am I tempted to do this to just. stop. those. failures? wellllll

Show thread

masto admin question 

Yeah, okay, so peertube.iselfhost.com/ is only accessible over IPv6 and I'm kind of livid that this is failing.

Like, why. Why on Earth. My instance has an IPv6 address so why would an HTTP connection to an IPv6-only instance fail? Why is it IPv6-only? These accumulating Sidekiq failures are killlllling me 😭

omg is this an IPv6 thing? I'm going to loose my shit
