Mammouth Café
#mammouthcafe

@skk @skk I strongly recommend you letting people know they can use @kensanata's mastodon-backup CLI tool (Python) to back up their data from mammouth.cafe.

I've just done this successfully myself in a few minutes.

github.com/kensanata/mastodon-

is back!

@skk *** THANK YOU ***

To my followers: you /might/ want to add my mastodon.cloud profile after all, as it seems two holes are better than one: @dredmorbius

First, about a month of downtime in July because I messed up things with SSL, and of course it happened while I was away.

Then, a further couple of days of downtime that took a while to solve because of difficulties with our host. Granted: it's a cheap one. I got what I paid for.

This truly has been the Summer of Our Disconnect.

I have some ideas to improve things, but it'll take a bit before I can implement them. Meanwhile, fingers crossed, hopefully we're back to normal.

@skk: I keep getting directed to the mammouth.cafe login screen.

Is this maintenance or a bug?

~3-4x in the past 24 hours or so -- pretty much any time I'm away-from-tab for an hour or more.

Cheers.

🇬🇧 All right, I managed to access the mammouth.cafe server and clean up the certificate renewal issue: #mammouthcafe should be up and running for you, now.

I apologize for the mess: I was prescient when I rote on mammouth.cafe/about/more the following: "We'll try not to mess things up, but we probably will at some point"...

Ah, well: we fall, we learn.

And the Cafe is alive again!

Thanks to @skk for administering! ❤

🇫🇷 Ayant pu enfin atteindre le serveur mammouth.cafe, j'ai pu remettre sur les rails le renouvellement de nos certificats: est à nouveau ouvert, reprenez place aux tables.

Je vous demande pardon pour cette panne, apparemment je sentais la chose venir lorsque j'ai écrit sur mammouth.cafe/about/more "Nous allons tâcher de ne pas gaffer, mais probablement que cela nous arrivera un jour ou l'autre"...

On apprend à marcher en tombant.
