Be crime do gay

  1. Mutual backup sharing

    So, uhm, we currently have the situation that our backup server has two 3TB hard drives (one for the backups, one for backups of those backups, we don't use RAID1 or the like because it's more complicated and sometimes even less reliable, it seems), but we don't have any off-premise backups. We could get a cheap cloud storage provider that supports rclone or the like (the 400GB plan on Mega was the cheapest we could find that had enough storage), but uhm, that costs more money than we're willing to spend right now, it seems. Should note we have offered that storage space over BorgBackup as a friendcloud for quite a while now, as stated on our services page, because right now, we're apparently just using around 120-130GB of that. Now, let's say you're in a similar situation? I.e. you have a backup server somewhere where you could offer access over Borg (preferred), Restic or some networked file system, you're using not significantly more than a Terabyte of space for your backups, and you could benefit from an (additional) off-premise backup? Great, then get in touch with us. It'd be a win-win situation ‒ both we and you would have a backup stored in a different place, while only giving away storage space we don't need right now anyway. Would be pretty cool, wouldn't it?

  2. PayPal is transphobic

    Today is the International Day Against Queerphobia (also known as International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia), which is quite a coincidence given the topic of this post is quite related…

  6. Our Matrix server is up again

    As you may have noticed, our Matrix server has been down recently. Now, it has been up for the last few days, however, we were waiting a bit to publish this post, wanting to set up the bots first. We had some trouble installing NixOS on the corresponding machine, however, especially over the last days as the nixos-unstable channel was blocked, forcing us to switch to nixos-unstable-small. Now, however, these are running too, and our JSON Feed bot even received an update.

  7. Nitter

    So uh, we set up Nitter, over at tw.artemislena.eu. Also, Matrix isn't currently working, we hope it will work soon after it has synced stuff, but can't guarantee anything. A lot of people tried to reach us over Jami instead, which didn't work, so we aren't officially reachable over that anymore, meaning currently, you should probably try either Signal or e-mail (or CryptPad, if you have to). Alternatively, fc17 has an alt at fairdust.space. And yeah, that's it.

  8. Major data loss

    So… TL;DR: We lost all of your data created after 28th November 2021 at midnight… No, we probably can't get it back for you… Yes, I am terribly sorry, this affected us as well… a lot… anyway… Matrix data should be mostly recoverable, we hope, except for password resets and new accounts, I suppose… that would have to be recreated… also anything that isn't federated… and perhaps some things that are… Invidious and Plik data from after the date above are definitely gone… static webserver data is still there… and no, I don't think I need any lectures on data safety right now; we've learned our lesson…
