oh, that’s why my basic bitch tendencies were tingling
is it purely for the aesthetic? of course it fucking is.
god help me i'm thinking about an SX-70 again
there's a part of me that wonders why i maintain the separation between @root and this account, given that there's only one admin on this instance and it's yrs truly
something about a separate account for administrative tasks feels more satisfyingly official.
if you're curious about the nitty gritty, vultr's got wicked cheap block storage that you can attach to VMs, so that's exactly what i'm doing. this instance really doesn't use many resources, but we're currently at 69% disk usage.
(disclaimer: i work there)
We're a few versions back here at Taco Bell Labs, so on Sunday afternoon (2022-05-01, approximately 1700 UTC or @750) there will be some brief downtime to install the latest Mastodon software.
During this downtime, I'll also be attaching some additional storage to make sure that the disk doesn't fill up with caches and media and such -- things are getting just a little bit cosy.
