I downloaded the new docker images for Mastodon v3.2.0 and ran 'docker-compose run --rm web rails db:migrate'. It immediately exited when it could not find "UndefinedTable: ERROR: relation "index_accounts_on_username_and_domain_lower" does not exist". Any ideas on how to safely create this index so the db:migrate task can continue? @Gargron

@ItsJenNotGabby oh, boy. excuse me while I go think negatively and wait for my imminent doom, possibly this weekend while I'm sitting on a beach sipping margaritas. 😂

@ItsJenNotGabby wait. sooooo, what’s the secret?

You might be an Internet Ancient if you: 

• remember Netscape Navigator

• ever used any modem with a bandwidth of 28,8 or lower

• had an Early Adopter account on Livejournal

• witnessed the rise and fall of PhPBB

• witnessed the rise and fall of Napster

• used the web before Google existed

• ever used a dialup BBS site

• remember Gopher

• ever downloaded music as .mod files

• remember when about 90% of the web was made up of personal sites which were "under construction" and had pictures of people's cats on them

• remember when Yahoo was literally just a big list of websites

• know IRC commands

• have heard anyone unironically use the phrase "information superhighway"

• can recognise different bandwidth modems by what bleepy handshake sound they make

• have ever received one of those chain e-mails where you have to scroll through about a kilometre of forwarded headers only to find a "hilarious" vaguely lewd image and/or a banal list like this one

@InvaderXan Not only do I check all your boxes, I still run an IRC server and I abhor Discord. We need an Internet Ancient Mastodon emoji. 😇

Does anyone remember, or currently play, Legend of the Five Rings card (deck building) game? It’s been so long for me. I miss it.

Introducing our new logo!

Since the previous author of the logo retracted their consent to us for using their logo, we were forced to create a new one.

We are happy to announce that we have created a new logo! A lot of us love pixel-art, so this was the style we have decided to use. And since we adore FOSS, we also decided to release it under the GPLv2, so anybody is free to use it!

Special thanks to u/taminaru for creating the original logo!


@ItsJenNotGabby Oh, naturally. I don’t believe any statement CBP puts out without independent verification. Hoping they are abolished in the next 4 years.

I'm a #Linux fangirl, not a Linux fanboy, and you can tell by the fact that I write fanfic like "Arch-san are you really going to come *all the way* into me, poor little Macbook Air-chan? 😮 Annnhh 💞"

I love Goya products. They're wonderful products. Everybody's been telling me this.
These products are so terrific that I decided to have a picture taken with them, smiling my sincerest, least fakey smile. Thank you!

Obviously I'm not using my friend's Disney+ account to watch Hamilton, but if I were, he might have set me up my own little profile so I don't mess up his recommendations and he might have chosen as the picture for it the most apt Disney character which is Cartoon Robin Hood and I love that so much. 💛

@firescotch @ItsJenNotGabby @proto oh, fuck. say it ain't so. i did not know this about him, i liked him. oh, well, his loss, not mine. fuck off, Mike Rowe.

Whelp, that was absolutely maddening. Migrated my tiny Mastodon instance to a new server. Everything *should* have worked seamlessly and the downtime should have been minimal as I did all my pre-planning and made sure everything was in order. After the migration, my instance was out of federation for about 4 days. The culprit? Not having the intermediate SSL certificates in the SSL chain. Mastodon gave NO hint of this in the logs. 🤦‍♂️

Oh hey, are you a #tor fan? Are you aware of the #MoreOnionsPorFavor hashtag going on now to promote Onion-Location headers? Check it out and increase discoverability of your onion sites!

tilde.black did exactly that this morning. We now have Onion-Location enabled so if you visit the site in the tor-browser you'll be prompted to swap over to the tor version automatically. So cool.
