I'm hoping that this sign will cut down on how many days a month our human lift isn't working. I'm not a fan of all our stairs, and wish I could go up and down in our lift.

A graphic I saw a call for at work today. "No big and awkward loads in our human-lifting lift, thanks. That's what our mondo-duty lift is for."

Looks as though upgrading is through, and all is ok. Many translations missing, as usual. You can submit translations at oulipo.link/qiqjBZ

Gonna try updating our mastodon instantiation again in a bit, from 2.7.4 to 2.8.4. Yay?

Work today:

A: Work is starting on our intran--

B: Don't call it that! That word is boring. You can call it a portal, if you want. That's not a moribund association, which ... that first thing ... has.

A: A portal to what? To information? *thinks* How about I call it an intranot?

I just bought a Spotify account for work. I don't know what to think about that.

Happy birthday, Oulipo! And in two days, happy two annum mark for our most old toot (first two days of history got lost in a db crash, I think): oulipo.social/@mus/1

Non-compliant words in graphic 

Modulo a bad glyph or two which snuck in to our UI again, as with most updatings.

Things that did go wrong:

1. ... nothing? That I know of?

Huh.

Midnight oulipo updating! What could go wrong? (Don't list things that could go wrong with that.)

RJL20 boosts

It's back! My prognostication about how long it would go down for was right on, too. *cough*

ATTN: This instantiation will soon go down for upgrading. Back up in 15 60ths of an hour, with any luck.

Instantiation Notification: Mastodon v2.7.0 is out, and I am anticipating installing it tonight (5+ hours from now, say). I'll post again just prior to taking things down for upgrading.

Not planning to go to work's big Annum Novum party. For a longstanding PNW institution, this party is looking awfully NYC-ish.

And I ❤️ food trucks, but for how much cash admission costs, I want a snack and a drink (not just bubbly for a midnight toast) thrown in gratis.

I'm cranky about all this cross-promotional sponsorship, too. Bah, humbug.

Updating to Mastodon v2.6.1 looks ok. Notify @rjl20 or @rjl20 with bugs you find, plz.

Thanks!

And you know that "could" is actually "will", right?

A major upgrading of Mastodon today could put our instantiation out of commission for a bit, on and off, starting soon. Sorry!

Oulipo.social (Mark II)

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
