@musicmatze I guess their instance needs to be notified. And it wouldn't surprise me if ~1/6 of your followers came from small instances that disappeared over the years. I guess it's a side effect of the nature of the fediverse.
I'll migrate out of m.t. In the next few days (Fosstodon also a big candidate, though I'm already on sdf.org and might make that my main) and compare numbers. My follower count is smaller, let's see if the proportion is similar.
I have sad news: mastodon.technology will be shutting down by the end of 2022. Access will be restricted no earlier than December 1.
More details here: https://ashfurrow.com/blog/mastodon-technology-shutdown/
I encourage you to export your data and migrate to a new server as soon as possible.
Thank you to everyone who trusted me as their admin. This was a difficult decision. I wish I could continue, but I can't.
@ashfurrow this is instance was my first introduction to the fediverse and I don't think I could have found a better one. I'm sorry for your situation and I completely understand. This is not a job and you're doing the right thing prioritizing family.
We're all gonna land somewhere else, don't worry.
And THANK YOU for your effort in the past few years!
@stella yes, micro usb. Which means I have an extra cable on my nightstand just for that 😒
But I assume there might be some new ones with USB C.
@stella I realize it's not exactly what you imagined, but the gist is: find something you like and decide that sleep is the only context in which you consume that music.
The dedicated headphones make it kind of a ritual, which might help, but YMMV.
@stella what does it for me (but it's not guaranteed to make me sleep, it's simply something I dedicated to that purpose) is a specific genre of music.
In my case, some dreamwave/synthwave that I almost exclusively listen to when I either want to sleep or relax without any other activity involved (no reading, no videogames, etc). If I'm bored of it, the Drone Zone channel on SomaFM is a backup.
I have a headband with a Bluetooth headset. I wear that, lower it on eyes, play.
MH, lack of sleep
I could not sleep last night. First night after finishing a book about sleeping and how important it is, LOL.
I can totally see how sleep deprivation affects my mood and my decision making abilities.
Right now, I'm fucking annoyed at something and want to quit 100% of my involvement in a specific part of my life.
I have enough self awareness to know it's not necessarily a fully rational decision, so I will sit on my fucking hands for another day before rushing into anything.

Found the issue re: QNAP not working on the IP range of my new network.
It apparently had some ACL allowing only private ranges, but *not* the one I use locally (172.16.XXX.XXX/24).
For some reason, it had only 172.31, which I never used. It was either a default, or something set by docker.
Whatever, I hate that I have to click around an incredibly slow UI to figure out this stuff. This NAS is history.
@xpil oh you mentioned two laptops. If you're not using the laptop displays and only use a single external screen for both, yes, barrier won't be useful. I never thought about it. I guess I haven't had a single monitor in years 😅
mastodon.technology is shutting down by the end of 2022. Please migrate your data immediately. 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!
