So, has lost all of it's toots.
This is due to a truncate command being run on the local statuses table, including the cascade option to include other related tables.

Sprucing up my personal site.

Any tips and criticism from my fellow Mastodonians?

Thanks in advance.

Who linked this a few hours ago?

I opened the tab but didn't look until now. It's exactly the project I wanted to start writing recently but haven't had the time to get started. #XMPP

I don't have to spend days reading documentation and implementing an obscure way to encrypt my user's emails! :blobcheer:

The #ISPmail guide I followed to set my mail server up to begin with released a version for Buster and contains explicit instructions for encrypting maim at rest with the user's password :blobaww:

Ugh. I've had to disable full-text searching, as my VM is unable to handle the high memory requirements. Looks like a hardware upgrade is in order soon. πŸ˜₯

I will never successfully spell quiet first time nor will I ever pronounce quinoa first time.

Aaaaand we're online again! Time to enable some caching!

Whitespashe is going down for a little while whilst I add SSD caching to my ESX host. Fingers crossed!!

Today is my 29th birthday! To celebrate, my wife baked me a coffee cake and we had Chinese takeaway. Although I had to work today, it felt like a good birthday has been achieved!
