- we had some issues that certain profile pages threw error 500 :/

I'm not sure about the exact cause but something related the "featured tags" feature cause the problems - so I've emptied the featured_tags table as a quick&dirty solution.

i don't inherently hate efforts like flatpak but when i wanna package something and i can't easily find out how it's built because all they have under their "Installation" link is steps to build/install it via Flatpak, I Do Not Like That.

so, we are back online - it was not our fault - the university computer center where our machines or standing had huge trouble with its power supply and yesterday most of the university services where offline, we just came back online a few hours ago, because we are not essential to production - there will be maybe some more glitches, but it should work again. uni-weimar.de/de/universitaet/

Vor ein paar Wochen fuhr die Dampflok auf der Ringbahn in Berlin. Gestern der Diesel-ICE auf der Neustrelitzer Straßenbahn.

Scheinbar fahren alle die gleiche Spurbreite. (Bis auf z.B. einige U-Bahnen in Berlin.)

Since people are going on and on, that #Selfhosting is not just running a script, let me clarify this:

Self-hosting is like gardening. Yes, it needs time and love. But mostly for making new stuff or big changes happen. When you do it properly it can boil down to a few minutes a week, as you maybe just need to water your plants in the garden.

It's a hobby, not everyone needs to do it. There are professional services as alternative, but it's nice to share with friends.

3.0.1 now running on social.bau-ha.us, we also rebootet the server, setup kernel live-patches and upgraded ZFS - also elasticsearch index is running again for mastodon. Let's see how well it'll work.

elasticsearch is still indexing that might cause trouble...

big update day: now on 3.0 we also updated -synapse to 1.4.0 and postgresql to 12 - that took quite a while so sorry for the long downtime... there will be shorter downtime later because I need to reboot the machine...

the funny thing about all this is there is basically no evidence that data analytics transformed into personalized advertising actually affects profits. the advertising surveillance apparatus keeps chugging along purely because managers believe it does

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

Die #AfD macht nicht nur #Rassismus wieder Salonfähig, sondern sorgt auch gleich dafür, dass #Faschismus normal scheint.

Jede Person, die einer Partei wie dieser ihre Stimme gibt ist ein #Nazi. Anders kann es gar nicht sein, denn wenn man "das eigentlich gar nicht so meint", würde man sowas nicht wählen.
