turns out I did my math wrong, so it’s a little less than 30 days

July 12th, 2024 @ midnight EDT

https://canvas.fediverse.events

✨ this year’s event also supports the entire fediverse not just Lemmy!

(you have to be able to make/receive text posts, like mastodon, lemmy, pixelfed, etc) (peertube accounts will not work)

you can get update announcements on other fedi platforms with @canvas@fediverse.events link

chat about Canvas on Matrix or Discord (they’re bridged)

Currently we have an images issue. Our Wasabi (S3) account was disabled because of some illegal content that was found, we're working with them to get the account re-enabled and the content removed.

[Update 20240308 14:47 UTC] The issue has been fixed.

There's some unrest because the Open Collective Foundation is stopping.

Don't worry, we use Open Collective Europe as a donations platform, they're going nowhere.

We've added some donation platforms, so if you would like to support us running our .world servers, you can do so here:

And for those wanting to donate crypto:

  • Cardano address: addr1v9qv6xvfwcx9ny56uag4umu6238sw2e7ff2kcxl3qe7p9esayjxgu

Thank you!

[Edit] Some of the links were broken, they should now all work! [Edit 20240314: Added Liberapay]

Next to Mastodon.world and Lemmy.world I am also running Calckey.world. This was running Calckey, a Misskey fork. That was re-branded to FireFish (that's the danger of running sites with the software name in the URL... :-) ).

Unfortunately due to circumstances the FireFish software will no longer be maintained. Therefore I was looking for another Misskey fork that could replace it, and I found Sharkey. This looks really nice.

So being who I am, I registered https://sharkey.world and installed it. It still needs some configuring and branding, but it works and you can use it! (As you will see it currently uses the Calckey.world branding)

I will write a brief how-to on migrating from Calckey to Sharkey and hope the calckey.world users will migrate.

Yes, there has been quite a lot of trolls and attacks on our server, so we're very careful about who we let on the team. I'm sure you'll understand.

I run a server https://calckey.world , which used to be CalcKey, but the software was re-branded to Firefish. Unfortunately, firefish.world is taken. What domain should I use for my new Firefish instance? Preferably a .world domain.

I have remembered these options suggested to me so far:

  • dartfish.world (a sort of fish similar to the firefish)
  • fedifish.world
  • fire-fish.world
  • f-fish.world

Any other suggestions? Or do you like one of the above?

I've written a short blog about what happened in August, and the finances.

BookWyrm.world (bookwyrm.world)
submitted 9 months ago by ruud@lemmy.world to c/fediverse@lemmy.world

I did it again.... started another Fediverse service, this time a Bookwyrm instance.

I used Goodreads, but if there's a Federated alternative, why not use that.. So I setup a server and opened registrations.

Enjoy, and please let me know if you find anything that can be improved or changed.

Well .world is also managed partly from NL :-)

There was another attack going on (as you might have noticed). We're working on a fix. In the meantime, we've blocked the listing of comments, so we at least aren't down, but it did break comments.

Hope to have a fix in the next hour. Stay tuned!

Update OK we've implemented a fix, again many thanks to @sunaurus@lemm.ee for his assistance. This will prevent the outages we've seen last couple of days. Let's see what they will come up with next...

A few days ago I saw some cool JoinLemmy stickers created by @cheeseblintzes@lemmy.world . I asked her if she could also create lemmy.world stickers, and she did!

You can see and order them here, also check the other cool stickers in her shop.

Thanks for creating them!

Anything that the family uses. Because when I cease to exist, my wife isn't gonna take over self-hosting! So e-mail, chat, documents etc.

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 109 points 11 months ago

I'll check the new way Lemmy detects dead servers, it's possible an outage caused lemmy.ml to think we're dead (we're not!) :-)

Lemmy.world has been down between 02:00 UTC and 05:45 UTC. This was caused by the database spiking to 100% cpu (all 32 cores/64 threads!) due to inefficient queries been fired to the db very often.

I’ve collected the logs and we’ll be checking how to prevent this. (And what caused this)

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 55 points 11 months ago

Down from 12GB to 1.8GB....

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 208 points 11 months ago

No, we did some rate limiting to try and fight off some attacks, but now some are too strict. We'll tune these so they won't bother you anymore.

Update The upgrade was done, DB migrations took around 5 minutes. We'll keep an eye out for (new) issues but for now it seems to be OK.

Original message We will upgrade lemmy.world to 0.18.3 today at 20:00 UTC+2 (Check what this isn in your timezone). Expect the site to be down for a few minutes. ""Edit"" I was warned it could be more than a few minutes. The database update might even take 30 minutes or longer.

Release notes for 0.18.3 can be found here: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/RELEASES.md

(This is unrelated to the downtimes we experienced lately, those are caused by attacks that we're still looking into mitigating. Sorry for those)

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 109 points 1 year ago

Ask in their GitHub repo.

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 55 points 1 year ago

Thank you. Nothing is decided yet, but because of moderation limitations on Lemmy and the fact people can't block domains for their account, I would say chances are we would defederate as soon as they do federate with Lemmy. For Mastodon these 2 arguments aren't valid so decision might be different.

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 72 points 1 year ago

Well there's about 5 to 10 people constantly working on these servers, so if they weren't volunteers, it would be a lot more... But yeah overall it's quite efficient so far.

[-] ruud@lemmy.world 56 points 1 year ago

Good point, I'll update the post.

Ooh I need to check the size of the custom emoji 😄
