PSV won its 12th match in Eredivisie in a row. They're now 7 points ahead of number 2 Feyenoord.

Yes, there has been quite a lot of trolls and attacks on our server, so we're very careful about who we let on the team. I'm sure you'll understand.

I run a server https://calckey.world , which used to be CalcKey, but the software was re-branded to Firefish. Unfortunately, firefish.world is taken. What domain should I use for my new Firefish instance? Preferably a .world domain.

I have remembered these options suggested to me so far:

  • dartfish.world (a sort of fish similar to the firefish)
  • fedifish.world
  • fire-fish.world
  • f-fish.world

Any other suggestions? Or do you like one of the above?

Good Monday everyone!

I've written a short blog about what happened in August, and the finances.

BookWyrm.world (bookwyrm.world)
submitted 2 months ago by ruud to c/fediverse

I did it again.... started another Fediverse service, this time a Bookwyrm instance.

I used Goodreads, but if there's a Federated alternative, why not use that.. So I setup a server and opened registrations.

Enjoy, and please let me know if you find anything that can be improved or changed.

Well .world is also managed partly from NL :-)

A 12" I picked up in some vintage vinyl store in London last April.

There was another attack going on (as you might have noticed). We're working on a fix. In the meantime, we've blocked the listing of comments, so we at least aren't down, but it did break comments.

Hope to have a fix in the next hour. Stay tuned!

Update OK we've implemented a fix, again many thanks to @[email protected] for his assistance. This will prevent the outages we've seen last couple of days. Let's see what they will come up with next...

A few days ago I saw some cool JoinLemmy stickers created by @[email protected] . I asked her if she could also create lemmy.world stickers, and she did!

You can see and order them here, also check the other cool stickers in her shop.

Thanks for creating them!

I'll check the new way Lemmy detects dead servers, it's possible an outage caused lemmy.ml to think we're dead (we're not!) :-)

Lemmy.world has been down between 02:00 UTC and 05:45 UTC. This was caused by the database spiking to 100% cpu (all 32 cores/64 threads!) due to inefficient queries been fired to the db very often.

I’ve collected the logs and we’ll be checking how to prevent this. (And what caused this)

[-] ruud 208 points 4 months ago

No, we did some rate limiting to try and fight off some attacks, but now some are too strict. We'll tune these so they won't bother you anymore.

Update The upgrade was done, DB migrations took around 5 minutes. We'll keep an eye out for (new) issues but for now it seems to be OK.

Original message We will upgrade lemmy.world to 0.18.3 today at 20:00 UTC+2 (Check what this isn in your timezone). Expect the site to be down for a few minutes. ""Edit"" I was warned it could be more than a few minutes. The database update might even take 30 minutes or longer.

Release notes for 0.18.3 can be found here: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/RELEASES.md

(This is unrelated to the downtimes we experienced lately, those are caused by attacks that we're still looking into mitigating. Sorry for those)

Ask in their GitHub repo.

The user was banned immediately. Also rate limiting has been put in place on community creation. (Removing the communities takes some time however..)

Ooh I need to check the size of the custom emoji 😄

This is lemmy.world after 4 weeks:

58G	pictrs
34G	postgres

If any illegal content would be posted there, let us know. If it's 1 community, we can block the community. If it's all over the place, we can defederate. But I see defederation as a last resort. If there are other ways to keep our server safe I prefer that.

[-] ruud 119 points 5 months ago

Yes, on the to-do list! Thanks!

[-] ruud 340 points 5 months ago

Thank you for all the compliments.

This ride reminds me of Mastodon.world in November. Details on that are here: https://blog.mastodon.world/and-then-november-happened

So I started lemmy.world on a 2CPU/4GB VPS. Keeping an eye on the performance. Soon I decided to double that. And after the first few thousand of users joined, doubled it again to 8CPU/16GB. That also was the max I could for that VPS type.

But, already I saw some donations come in, without really asking. That reminded me of the willingness to donate on Mastodon, which allowed me to easily pay for a very powerful server for mastodon.world, one of the reasons it grew so fast. Other (large) servers crashed and closed registrations, I (mainly) didn't.

So, I decided to buy the same large server (32cpu/64threads with 128GB RAM) as for masto (but that masto one has double the RAM). With the post announcing that, I also mentioned the donation possibilities. That brought a lot of donations immediately, already funding this server for at least 2 months. (To the anonymous person donating $100 : wow!).

Now next: to solve the issue with post slowness. That's probably a database issue.

And again: migration took 4 minutes downtime, and that could have been less if I wasn't eating pizza at the same time. So if any server wants to migrate: please do! If you have the userbase, you'll get the donations for it. Contact me if you have questions.

Restart is done. Enjoy!
