Open.audio is currently down, this is a DNS issue likely linked to the domain transfer.

I'll keep you informed when this is solved.

tanukitunes.com is going down now for library migration. I'll announce here when it's back up.

Thanks for your patience. Everything has now been migrated over to another server. More details to follow in a Patreon post.

I think I need to downgrade this server and look into different S3-compatible storage. These costs are ridiculous for one person at this spec.

One day of running Mastodon and I'm already over the put limit for the free AWS tier. Blimey.

Wow there is a LOT of porn on mastodon. Guess I'd better set up a blocklist.

I've started a Patreon for running both this and tanukitunes.com. Currently, this is all running at a reasonable cost that I'm happy to cover (after all, it's an education!) but if I do see signups to either service I can imagine it getting quite expensive. Please consider donating. I also welcome suggestions for other perks!

One thing this has taught me, though, is how to get Nginx working with multiple things at once. That's going to be pretty useful going forward. All for the cause of education, I guess!

I'll definitely be putting Matrix on its own dedicated server.

The reason these two things are sharing a server is because the server was powerful enough for two things, but I'm beginning to think it will end up being an administrative nightmare. Should have planned that one better really.

I guess the best way to do that would simply be to create a snapshot of the server and spin up a clone, then remove one service from it keeping the other intact and then update the zone records. Problem with that is it's going to be prohibitively expensive to keep two servers of that spec going.

At some point - thinking about this - I'm going to have to separate these two things out into two servers. That could be a headache.

My federated folklore instance is now up-and-running. This has been a lot of fun and I've learned quite a bit about Docker and Postgresql in the process. All in all I'd call this a success.
