and we're back! now running the latest glitchsoc commit.
please direct any technical questions to me @kity, this account is not monitored consistently.
going down for upgrades in a few minutes. in the meantime, feel free to read through the list of changes since the last upgrade: https://github.com/glitch-soc/mastodon/compare/a1c6e6de1b42ea1ecfa2bb188ab56ee5f73611ce...8d57c0e70ea76b2f482c0919fc815d40352ef477
@jamey also, 1 calorie is defined as the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1 °C -- so because ice cream is colder than your body, it's negative calories

I just thought I'd draw attention to the latest #tootcat upgrade, which now lets you edit the names of your Lists(!) -- as implemented by our very own @kity (ash) in less than a day and now part of the GlitchSoc distro.
I mean, like, wow -- how long has it been since Lists were introduced, and they couldn't be renamed until now? dafuq.
Anyway, I sent ash a tip for adding that leetle oversight; please feel free to contribute to ash's future work on this and other projects (see @kity for links).
hi holy hell we're back!!!! that was much smoother than expected, direct all issues to me at @kity thanks!!
hi friends, just letting you know we're gonna actually migrate over to the glitchsoc fork of mastodon (https://github.com/glitch-soc/mastodon)!!!
while this is a very exciting change and will bring many new features, chances are it won't be perfectly seamless and we might be down for a bit. @woozle is running a backup right now, so don't worry too much
after the update, i'll be around to help people get acquainted with the new features and take care of any bugs that might pop up <3
There was a server config issue causing some folks to get full-page 403 errors on visiting toot.cat.
The problem seems to be limited to visitors accessing the site via http without having recently accessed it via https, e.g. if you just typed "toot.cat" in the URL bar.
That's been fixed now.
I've also been seeing sporadic 50x errors pop up inside the Mastodon UI; that seems probably unrelated.
As always, please let me know if you know of any issues using #tootcat.
After some hunting around, I finally figured out that I needed to bump a couple of parameters *way* up -- like, from 25 to 100.
Latency is now back in reasonable territory and outgoing toots should be going through in a matter of seconds or single-digit minutes, not hours.
Let me know if this is not the case.

Site news. Toots will be infrequent and only when there's something relevant. Really.
