:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path :emergency: 

hey lets just say it: jorts runs like dogshit nowadays, and any of the minor tweaks i've tried to do to fix it have done absolutely nothing

it's my own website, and even i can't get it to load on my phone at all anymore


so, the thing i've been putting off for weeks now (and don't get me wrong ... i will probably put off for a couple more weeks after this post! that's BRAND CONSISTENCY, baby!) is upon us

we need to update

:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path :emergency: 

to be blunt, i don't think updating will fix the problem

i think the problem is that linode is now a pile of horseshit for some reason, probably because they got bought

this diagnosis is brought to you by: vibes

but i'm not going to migrate us onto another webserver or anything like that while we're still running cryptkeeper ass cobwebbed shitcode limping along

and i'm *certainly* not gonna do both of these things at once, because i am lazy

:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path :emergency: 

so i figure...

step one: update jorts
step two: declare the problem solved and ignore it for another month
step three: admit the problem is not solved, ignore it for another few weeks
step four: move us to another webserver or whatever the fuck needs to be done to fix this shit


:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path WITH POLL! :emergency: 

so let's get on with step one! but vanilla masto... stinky. oof. no thank you

so, here's a poll! from talking to folks a while back, hometown and glitch.soc seemed like the best fits -- they give us more features, they don't look like stinky modern masto, and they both include the ability to do local-only posting, something i think we all want

i do not promise to abide by the results of this poll, but make your thoughts known here!

@killeveryhetero purely based on curiosity - how about firefish? git.joinfirefish.org/firefish/

:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path [FORK INFO] :emergency: 

@killeveryhetero joinfirefish.org/ UI looks better (?) than glitch and hometown

:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path [FORK INFO] :emergency: 

@killeveryhetero they both sound good to me I can't really choose

:emergency: jorts dot horse upgrade path [FORK INFO] :emergency: 

@waitworry that's perfectly fine, i mostly posted the poll for a vibe check anyway
