Good morning!

The migration to masto.host 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.

Hello pdx.social users! I’m going to be moving the server to masto.host tomorrow. There will likely be several hours of downtime while the migration is happening.

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.

pdx.social 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. 🙇‍♂️

🚨The site is going down shortly for server migration

🚨In the near future the hosting for pdx.social is going to be moved to a new server. Unfortunately this will require a few hours of downtime. I’ll post again when I know for sure when the migration will occur.

Apologies for the downtime. I was upgrading the Postgres cluster and forgot to post a message about it.

Hello pdx.social users, there's a fork of Mastodon called Hometown (github.com/hometown-fork/homet) that adds local-only posts. I'm considering switching pdx.social over to it. How do people feel about that?

The server is going down for a few minutes while I upgrade it to 2.9.2.

The server is experiencing some serious issues with its storage. Things may be bumpy for awhile.

I'll be upgrading the server to 2.8.2 shortly.

I need to make a configuration change to the servers that will likely cause a few minutes of downtime. Apologies!

The migration is complete. Please reach out if you notice any weirdness.

I'm migrating pdx.social to a pair of load-banaced web front-ends today. Downtime should be minimal.

🚨 There will be about 30 minutes of downtime this afternoon for a hardware upgrade.
