weirder.downtime? 

@dzuk Poking here from alt to alt.

Observing that weirder.earth seems to have fallen over, as of sometime in the last half an hour (between 0200 and 0230 UTC). Didn't see any mention of downtime in my local feed before F5'ing into emptiness. Am hoping things are only temporary.

cc: @not_on_pizza@weirder.earth just in case things work again soon...

note to self, cryptic 

Vetinari algo that uses the I piece droughts in a TGM-like or distance-like randomzier as a pulse train...

music, self-doubt (+) 

So... I made a music thing this weekend... and I've spent a lot of time wondering if it was any good...

A selection of feedback:
* "...want to see this in Zelda"
* "gives me a Final Fantasy vibe"
* "super atmospheric"
* "great track"

And... maybe it's good?

personal (~+), allusion to kink 

But now... in part, at least... I am slowly starting to find my word-feet again...

Slowly finding the confidence to be able to believe that I can maybe do things again... That I can... be myself again...

A different self, in some ways... but still me, as I was. The pathing is different, but... I'm still here... somewhere... able to open up again...

To know that I can get _that_ sort of reaction out of someone...

Yes. I can do this...

personal (~-), trans 

It's... very possible that questioning, and then transition... had a large part to play in that...

Like I suddenly had to relearn pretty much everything, in terms of how to interact with the world around me. Removed from my normal operating parameters... things... started to go to hell...

And then that opened the floodgates, and then everything really _did_ start happening...

Sometimes, I wonder how I managed to escape, from that darkness... I nearly didn't...

personal (+~) 

I'm... starting to remember that my words can be... quite powerful, at times...

I used to be so much better at being able to communicate, and opening up to people, and allowing people to open up to me...

And... at some point, about 5-10 years ago... I lost almost all of that...

Today... I can slowly feel that coming back to me. It's going to take a lot of effort, but... I think I can do this...

Especially if... what just happened is anything to go by...

Please be compassionate to the people who pop up on other instances in the next few weeks asking if anyone knows why witches.town is down.

@soft_chomps@glitch.social Err... did @yuri_bot@mastodon.social just have its crontab altered?

@woozle @LottieVixen Can you two do me (and the entire fediverse) a big favour, and hug the 🎺 🐈 server(s) for me, please?

a.weirder.earth update (--~), birdsite link 

@dzuk Isn't around right now... probably asleep? So I'm putting this out there on zir behalf.

This is a twitter link that mykola just posted in the a.w.e emergency Discord server, where he summarizes all of the shit that he's gone through to try to understand what happened to a.w.e: twitter.com/mykola/status/9892

The weirder earth that we knew and loved is gone... but a new one will be built in its place.

Hey! You know what it's time for?

That's right, it's time to download an archive of your profile!

If you're on Mastodon, just head on over to your Preferences » Data export > Request archive. While you wait for that, go ahead and download your Follow list, and maybe your mute and block lists if those are important to you.

If you don't see "Download archive" show up within an hour (may require refreshing page) or don't get an email with the link, let your admin know. :-)

for glitch soc people, if someone marks their profile as having migrated, their profile on the page is grayed out + lacks follow options.

this makes it impossible to follow them w/o doing a remote follow.

please fix.

I just dropped Mykola a DM on the twitters to offer assistance with recovering a.weirder.earth if they end up getting access to the server.

Remember, download a copy of your backups on a regular basis, my fellow #mastoadmin folks. They're only helpful if you can get to them and restore them, potentially somewhere other than the hosting company you usually use.

Calling All Weirdos (a.w.e downtime meta) 

Does anyone have an out-of-band contact for @mykola ? a.weirder.earth has been down since... my best guess is a little before 1am EDT (0500 UTC), and from what little I saw on the local timeline before reloading into endless loops of nothingness, I don't believe that this downtime was planned...

Account Migration (incoming) 

Pardon the noise! Big teddy bear's owner moving over from @not_on_pizza

(And while I was at it, I changed the sunset picture over to a better one.)
