Cloudflare is partly down and people call this "Internet outage". edition.cnn.com/2020/08/30/tec

Either the Internet is dead or people just don't understand what Internet is.

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Today we had 2 power cuts but the server was up because I now have a dedicated UPS for the server and a dedicated unit for network equipment.

2 x Used APC BackUPS Pro 1000.
