Probably the most important bit of trivia you new people would find useful is that you can use Mastodon from various apps!

Android, iOS, desktop, even alternative web clients that look differently!

Bumped Mastodon to v2.6.5. Keep the updates coming Eugen and team!

@ACupOfSaltTV oh, that hurts. Docker does save a bit of time in managing this vanity instance

This Mastodon instance is now running v2.6.4. This means that another release is right around the corner, doesn't it?

Protip: Run `docker image prune -a` once in a while.

Total reclaimed space: 9.221GB

Should I update Mastodon today or just wait until v2.6.5 comes out?

#Mastodon v2.6.3:

Another backport. There is an important performance fix that was missing in 2.6.2 and some smaller fixes.

Upgraded my vanity Mastodon instance to v2.6.2 and nothing seems to be broken so far.

Next on my list is to migrate this thing to a k8s cluster

Looking forward to reading the Fall 2018 fsf@status.fsf.org

That's why we're pushing for web sites to adopt HTTPS by default.

Shameless plug: if you are an organization that would be interested in this, I’m available for consultation or to hire.

@Gargron this will happen IMO when orgs are hosting their own instances. For example, governments often have many different Twitter/FB/Instagram accounts for many various departments and officials, those could all be self-managed in the same way those orgs manage email, dns, and web infrastructure.

@maloki I realized my phrasing was wholly incorrect as soon as I posted it -- While US law doesn't apply internationally, it does present a particular can of worms that is cumbersome to work around and may best be avoided unless you know what you're doing.
