Follow this account for Toot.Cat site news.

I recommend all local users follow it to receive announcements of planned server outages (hopefully few and short) or issues that may affect them.

Remote follows are also fine.


I've had to take HubCat ('s Hubzilla instance) down temporarily to make room on the server (different server from the one that runs Mastodon).

I'll be resurrecting it as soon as other stuff is fixed (the server upgrade broke all the WordPress installs, and I didn't notice until yesterday).

I have unblocked inex.rocks, mainly because the original block was poorly documented and I therefore can't confirm whether the conditions which led to it are still applicable.

More details here: mew.toot.cat/mw/Pub/toot.cat/b

If anyone has trouble with that site, please feel free to use the reporting feature or contact me directly.

Thank you!

Does anyone have an opinion on whether we should block mastodon.etalab.gouv.fr?

It is technically a state-run instance, but it appears to be of educational or informational intent -- and we haven't made a habit of blocking instances originating from US public universities as far as I know.

There's a line in there somewhere, between education and surveillance, but I don't know if this crosses it.

Here's the agency's web page, translated to English.

Thanks,

Does anyone have any experience with social.inex.rocks/, positive or negative?

We're revisiting a domain-block, by request from their admin.
