“It’s about doing the one little thing you can do, even if it’s useless: planting seeds in the midst of the apocalypse, spitting on a wildfire, bailing out the ocean with a bucket. Individual action is almost always pointless. Hope and strength comes from our bonds with each other, from the actions we take as a community, holding hands in the dark.” https://festive.ninja/one-atom-of-justice-one-molecule-of-mercy-and-the-empire-of-unsheathed-knives-alexandra-rowland/

@ashfurrow hi! just a heads up, i may have discovered a bug: searching for "@xyz" (include double quotes) 500s. can replace xyz with anything; doesn't need to be an existing user.
i don't know if this is a misconfiguration, or a bug in your fork, or in upstream, or just transient, so i figured i'd nudge you before i filed a github issue anywhere.
thanks for running this instance! :hugops:
@mdbraber good find! it's actually been just ~$800/yr for the last couple years, and current run rate is down to ~$450/yr.
regardless, if you run it yourself for just your own accounts, it should fit entirely within app engine's free tier. you'd need a few config tweaks, specifically reverting https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/commit/b35e553a90534a132a1fdf8f167b1714b2bbde2f . background in https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/578#issuecomment-376233546
@mdbraber @aaronpk definitely doable! a couple people have done it before. most of the work will be generating the silo API app credentials you need and putting them into the right files in your local repo: https://github.com/snarfed/oauth-dropins/blob/master/oauth_dropins/appengine_config.py#L40-L83 . then just sign up for google cloud, create an app engine app, and deploy!
@rrix @nightpool so far, i don't know why cybre.space is 503ing bridgy fed's inbox delivery POST. your site seems to be set up ok, eg http://notes.whatthefuck.computer/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:email@example.com works fine.
one interesting thing to note is that cybre.space evidently runs a fork of mastodon, https://github.com/cybrespace/mastodon . i doubt that's the cause of the problem here, but it's possible.
