OK, I've now finally finished moving Gitlab to another instance.

Mastodon and Wordpress left to go.

I think I'll just deal with it tomorrow or day after that.

I wonder if there is a way to change domain easily.

While doing so, I'm also changing the domain name on the sites to my new .net domain.

Will leave this one on .me though...

Half of the work is done, I still need to migrate this instance and few more things, like Gitlab and stuff.

Migrating sites to new Ubuntu based server (18.04) , previously used Debian.

In need for some newer packages and want to consolidate few servers so ther's that.

That got out of hand just a little tiny bit...

Of course I'm an idiot. Almost done with main desk and forgot to wipe the screens!!! Argh. Now I risk moving them out of place again. And it took me like 30 minutes to get them "just right".

I really need to stop being so nervous. This "little activity" got me really ramped up. And I'm only half way there.

Just spent 3 hours cleaning up my desk and now I can no longer arrange ergodox the way I had it before and got used to it. Typing speed -9000

@wxcafe Do some companies foster behavior where you're "trans-role"? Yeah, sure. Some folks like doing that, but not me.


There's myriad of titles in order to differentiate roles.

Many companies these days say "DevOps" to target a person knowing certain practices (communication, automation, business perspective).

Then in the job description they point out requirements. Most of the time you can see by looking at that description of what kind of person they look for.

If you see everything from ninja warrior to nuclear physicist then apparently, something's wrong. But that's for each individual to decide.

@wxcafe And I think I shouldn't emphasize on how poor of a job average dev would do when setting up an infrastructure :-)

@wxcafe my point, devops being person doing dev and ops work is bullshit. Devops is the process IMHO.

When something needs to be coded, I still reach for the dev as it would take him less time to do something than me. Saves my patience as well as company money (my time = company money).

@wxcafe as an ops person that is now working under "devops engineer" title I can still say I'm full blown ops. But now I do more communication with devs and am prioritizing business needs better.

As a pure Ops I wans't even aware of such needs, I only solved technical issues as they came. Seeing the whole picture I can say that it allows for better long-term decisions and allows presenting the case when you need budget and stuff like that.

To clarify, I started deletion process in the foreground first, then figured out it may take some time to complete 😄

bin/tootctl media remove --days=30 --background
Scheduled the deletion of 70510 media attachments (approx. 27.9 GB)


Why there is no mention about periodic:

tootctl media remove

in mastodon docs? My media folder grew to like 70GB 😄

@angristan It's still fun if you come up with funny responses :-D

Systemd is pretty good though. Nothing to joke about there. Snaps are decent as well... :-)
