🚨 No, Jorts is not on 3.0. I fucked up over the holidays and didn't get the updates to go through. That being said, at least one instance that theoretically shouldn't see us, seems to be able to see us. i'll try to update us this weekend, if i can get my shit together 🚨



@killeveryhetero which i realise u can probably tell from my extreme excitement re: Horse Shenanigans

@seafrog my suspicion is that jorts is so fundamentally broken that features which are supposed to make us not federate are straight up ignored

like the world's jankiest, rustiest, junker of a car, reeking of flood waters and none of the electronics do what they're supposed to do, but by odin not a single one of your ANTI CAR countermeasures do a godsdamned thing to it

@killeveryhetero ok i enjoy the metaphor but may i recommend: the grumpiest, mangiest, wonkiest horse. he will let u ride him, and sometimes he will go in the direction u want but it is a Lie and he will absolutely get in a hot air balloon and take u for a ride at the slightest whim of his janky little hooves

@seafrog to be honest i was somewhat specifically referring to my shitbucket honda civic i drove through floodwaters up to my doorhandles

all the electronics, one by one, winked off, including the radio, AC, and headlights, but the damned thing kept going until i got to high ground and waited for 5 minutes, at which point the electronics started coming back one by one in reverse order

now the AC settings buttons do random things instead of what they're meant to, and take effect 1 minute late

@killeveryhetero ok i fucking love ur honda civic and i would die for it

my partner has a mini and if u drive thru a big puddle then the fanbelt slips and the alternator stops charging the battery and all the electronics start going out :')) (or at least i think that's it, i am not good at cars) and i love it very much. in my mums car which i drove for a while, u have to take the fuse out at night or the battery runs down, and if u forget to put it back in the speedo doesnt work

@killeveryhetero old, janky, shitty cars that struggle on despite accumulating more and more dents and shortcircuits are the love of my life

@seafrog here's some pics out the window when it happened but this was the LEAST WORST part of the floodwaters, like literally half as high, cuz i'd already gotten through the hellwaters at this point

@killeveryhetero @seafrog I've only been to Louisiana a couple times in my life, but this is extremely Louisiana to me.

We got flooded at my Grandma's in Tickfaw and couldn't leave for about 6 hours, and when we did finally leave we were halfway up the doors of the old chevy blazer we drove down from Ohio.

@Authoritimmy @seafrog the fuckin train station was underwater so all these tourists or w/e they were were just stranded and drinking

@killeveryhetero do u wanna see the pics from where i managed to lift two wheels of a big white truck off the ground by sliding under it with my nissan micra

@seafrog the entire city of new orleans is gonna be underwater in about 15 years

time to get the fuck out while we still can cuz 5G blocks nasa weather satellites and we won't see the next Katrina coming

...and yes of course I wanna see the pics

@killeveryhetero new orleans is fuckin beautiful tho, i love everything about it honestly - the swamps, the bourbon street kinda architecture, everyone is batshit insane. its great

@seafrog tryna maybe move to philly this year cuz it's got a lot of the same insane new orleans energy with less ... swamp

@killeveryhetero blah blah swamp weather bad, there are RACCOONS that are friends with ALLIGATORS and they both LOVE MARSHMALLOWS!!!!!!!!!

@seafrog it's like living in a sauna except someone dumped their trash in the corner right next to wherever the hot shit in a sauna comes from i don't know i'm not a Sauna Genius so there's a nice murky hot wet Garbage Aura around you at all times and all places

my parents ARE accidentally feeding 3 raccoons and an opposum though, when they were trying to feed a stray cat

@seafrog to be fair parts of philly also smell like garbage

the hilaripressing part is when me and @dubsteppenwolf visited philly we both got homesick when we were walking downtown and passed a wafting Garbage Aura and we were like "why the fuck am i suddenly homesick wait YOU TOO? ....... OH MY GOD ITS THE TRASH SMELL"

@killeveryhetero authorized fetch is only required for two things in federation to work:

boosts of posts your instance hasn't seen yet
followers-only posts not showing up as DMs

other than that, old Mastodon should continue to work

@ben nonetheless, jorts has needed a reinstall for a looong time

i lost permissions in ruby to update my own fucking code somehow

@killeveryhetero @ben

I ran into this problem and the .profile was missing from the user I was logged into.. roots .profile is wrong and user mastodons .profile was missing so all the stuff to run Ruby and most of the update crap wasn't there and it gave permission errors
to guess I'd say you're either not sudoed into the mastodon user or the .profile is missing or wrong in the home directory

@Luxotek @ben it's all five thousand times more complicated because of stupid fucking docker

i'm just going to reinstall the whole thing, without docker, as soon as i find the energy and make sure i know how to do that while keeping our data intact

@killeveryhetero @ben

this is the one when i migrated from my raspbery pi installation to a vm and then to glitch-soc

@Luxotek @ben as usual with every single guide, i'm not sure how well this applies to an instance running docker

docker is 100% what screwed my chances of truly understanding wtf i'm doing at any point during this

@killeveryhetero @ben

the key parts are just the command dumping the DB in a way it can be re-imported and copying your env.production from the running docker - then you can just delete it since you're not using your /live/system directory for media being that's it's on wasabi
no more docker after two commands

that just leaves it to a new install ignoring docker completely and should be fairly straight forward

@Luxotek @ben excited to try and reimplement the background image i tried to put on jorts (when i accidentally broke everything forever) 1 week after reinstalling the server and somehow discovering new and exciting ways to fuck everything up

@killeveryhetero @ben

i can't wait to be locked out of shitposting again by that fucking jorts elk

@killeveryhetero @ben

hell yeah i saved it - it was momentous moment in mastodon history (like the implosion of

and a great pic

@killeveryhetero @Luxotek @ben moving witches from ubuntu to gentoo (and off docker) was easy to do, just had to go down for a bit to keep the db consistent while I exported/imported, and all the media is on wasabi anyway. it was way less work than i thought it'd be and i had to write my own install guide for doing it on gentoo lol

mysqldump is easy to use and your friend

@anna @killeveryhetero @Luxotek anna unless you're running a really weird mastodon instance, it's pg_dump

@anna @killeveryhetero @Luxotek gonna implement a rails data backend that stores data in dwarf fortress historical figures like dfhack used to do

@killeveryhetero @Luxotek @ben or postgresdump lol. brain broken thinking about work stuff. pgdump! that's what its called. i think.
