Good morning!

The migration to is underway and the site is up. You may notice some media is missing while things continue to copy over. The whole process should be done within a few more hours.

I hope that everyone is doing OK.

Taking the server down briefly to reconfigure it

I’m going to upgrade the server to 3.1.2 today. runs on my own hardware and I maintain it in my spare time. If you've wanted to contribute to the costs of operating it now you can! I've created a Liberapay page where donated funds go to cover not just this server but my other projects as well.


Well folks that migration didn't go as smoothly as I wanted but I think things are working now. I'm sorry for the extended downtime. If you posted something while the server was being wonky then that status may have been lost. 🙇‍♂️
