I'm trying out Fedora Silverblue in a VirtualBox VM (on an Ubuntu host). For some reason, after installing and creating a user, the keyboard doesn't work. Like when I reboot, I can't type my password to login. Anyone else have this problem?

@returntrip it is possible to run single user with 1GB ram. If be concerned about disk space, and I'd consider something other than mastodon, but ...

Did you know that you can support this instance economically?

I have set up a liberapay acount so users can support the Linux.Pizza project.
More donors = more services and we will be able to spend more time on it.

Linux.Pizza is 95% financed by our own pocket, which means that the fate of this instance and services boils down to one person only (basically a single point of failure).

I hope that we can build a community together where everyone's input is valuable!

Even without tuning, there's still a major step change on the new hardware. But should be able to get things snappier still.

Well here we go, a Synapse release candidate fresh from the press. 1.6.0rc1 contains federation support for cross signing, version 5 rooms by default and prep for database sharding. Check it out if you would like to help us test github.com/matrix-org/synapse/

Is it possible to run a single user instance on an Oracle Cloud Free Tier machine with 1v CPU and 1GB RAM?

Coming to #Tusky Nightly today: Bookmark support!
It will only work with Mastodon instances that already run the new bookmarks code. Of course we will wait to release it in the stable channel at least until Mastodon did a release as well.

Hi fediverse! It's been awhile but I decided to put a Mastodon client back on my phone. How's it going?

Converting weird formats with Windows utilities running in wine inside of #toolbox on #silverblue like it's 1990. It's #darkmode though!

In order to secure your #Nextcloud from the #NextCry attack, you should keep all writable data on a volume that is mounted with `noexec`. Of course you should also make sure you have your setup up-to-date and check the current security best-practices for nextcloud.

Finally you should also make sure you have very regular backups of your data, don't consider synchronized data as backup.

My evil masterplan: Make everyone using Mastodon or the broader Fediverse in general.

Progress so far: 4 done, ~7 billion to go.

Join me :blobfoxfloofdevil: and the world will be everyones'!

Database migration to new hardware is complete and so far things look pretty promising. We'll be doing further migrations over the next few days, but hopefully the root cause of the recent disruptions is now solved.

I played with delta.chat for a couple days. The concept is very admirable. Sending first messages to folks are just like emails. The get them in clear text, and can just reply from their MTA. But if they also have the delta.chat app, and reply, then it can roll over to E2E encrypted communication for that contact.

As for usability, their phone app is slightly nicer because it can access your phone's contacts. Otherwise feels about like Signal UI.

tl;dr; neat! but i'm not going to migrate
